Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah while Ali he was so happy as you mine all praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanho wa taala. And may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon His servant and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as to what follows My dear respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
well Hamdulillah that Allah azza wa jal has given us this opportunity, after al Hajj that we meet and discuss
something of the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa taala. We ask Allah azza wa jal to accept our gathering, and to forgive our sins and our shortcomings by Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Today's lecture is titled What comes after hash. And of course, Allah azza wa jal blessed many Muslims, and here has honored many Muslims with this opportunity to fulfill and how, and that is the fifth pillar of Islam for hamdulillah for this blessing,
and Allah azza wa jal, he just he legislated this worship of Al Hajj because it has immense benefits for the believers and Hajj has immense, huge immeasurable benefits for the believers. In the Quran in surah, Al Hajj, Allah azza wa jal, he said, one of them fineness even has yet to carry jalla wa Equilibar meaning to them in qualification Amit, Leah Shadowman fer Allah whom Allah azza wa jal in Surah Al Hajj he said,
proclaim and announce the Hajj to the people of the infinitive and harsh what would happen yet to carry Yellin. People will come on their feet, they'll come walking to and hush, and that of course has happened for many years before aeroplanes and so people would come walking to and how to carry Jana while I Coolibar medium team and in Khalifa genomic and on every mode of transportation, on the animals on the camels on the horses on the donkey is whatever it is, on aeroplanes, on ships, they will come from very far distances. This is what Allah azza wa jal mentioned. Why should they come to El Hajj, what is their in and how Allah azza wa jal he said Leah Schulman fer Allah home so that
they can witness benefits for them. So Allah azza wa jal, he mentioned that he legislated and Hajj so that the people can come and witness many benefits for them, including financial benefits, and most importantly, spiritual benefits. People witness huge lessons in harsh
harsh is filled with beneficial lessons. And it is filled with a lot of life lessons.
And so the one who was concerned to fulfill his host correctly, he comes after al Hush, having learned many beneficial lessons and life lessons
so powerful that they would be enough for him until the day he dies and meets Allah subhanahu wata Allah. So this is why Allah azza wa jal legislated and harsh
and Allah subhanahu wa taala he says,
for either Kobe, two men a seeker come, fifth guru, Allah Kerikeri come come out assured the the Quran Allah subhanahu wa taala he says, for either Kobe, two men a seeker come once you have finished your 100 rights. Once you have finished al Hush, you finished the days of Mina, you finished a poll. If you have finished a site, you finish out Have you finished goods deliver? Once you have finished the stoning and the farewell bow if once a hash is over, and it's complete and done. Allah azza wa jal has an instruction. He tells us what comes after how what we're supposed to be doing. He said for either Kobe to massacre come once you finished your house right? Good Allah.
Ke Ke come accom OSHA difficult then make mention of your load, make lickin of Allah subhanahu wa dawn in the same manner you make mention of your parents. I shut the vehicle and an intense, a lot more thicket of Allah
So the idea is in a harsh, those that attended and harsh and even those that lived these 10 plus days of Malaysia, the heart was trained upon Vikram Maha social in every situation. You know, one of the grand wisdoms of an Hirsch is that he trains and teaches the believer, the importance of the Corolla here. So imagine in your life so you'll find that the judge, even though they are tired, restless, haven't slept enough that you're hungry, but the instruction from Allah continues to come. That you remember ALLAH,
you make dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Oliver is all about a diet
was delivered when you wake up the next night, it's all about a thicket.
Upon boy, if and there's a lot of liquor that is supposed to be done during a birth and the site as well. Notice and the judge
during the six days of unhealth one law the judge are tired,
they are tired, they are hungry, they haven't rested and slept enough. But Allah Allah so He can continues to see for the good Allah Allah of good Allah li of good Allah. Make liquor of Allah make mention of Allah make a diet with thicker, thicker, thicker. What do we learn from all this? We learn from all of this, that the chromo you Subhanahu wa Taala is supposed to accompany a person all these times
during times of ease and times of difficulty.
You see the Hajaj a little sleep. They've only slept a little and they're hungry and they're starving and they're tired.
But they manage to continue to meet Vic Romani. Subhanahu wa taala. The heart is being trained upon the Dhikr of Allah azza wa jal.
And so, in your sujood, there is a dhikr of Allah. In your record, there is dhikr of Allah the entire solid is dhikr of Allah. So don't forget all of this. When you wake up, there is dhikr of Allah to be set. In the afternoon, there is dhikr of Allah azza wa jal to be done. Before sleep there is thicker, before we eat there is thicker. After we finished food there is dicket. Before and although there is a thicket, which is Bismillah after Lobo there is a vicar to be said.
And so the believer all his day and all his night, there are many activities that are tied to a vicar before it and after it. And then there are accounts that are just timed with the time like the morning in the evening, the night of girl before you sleep at someone. This is supposed to be the case of a believer after a harsh advocate is supposed to be engraved in his heart. The importance of a vicar is supposed to be engraved in the heart of my brothers and sisters in Islam. One of the greatest signs that genuine love of Allah azza wa jal is in your heart is when you make dhikr of Allah subhanahu wata Allah. Because when you love something, you make a lot of mention of it. You
see when people love their cars, their homes, their businesses, they sit in their gatherings and they speak about these matters all day and night.
And no one is bothered and no one is tired. When you love something, you mentioned that a lot. So the one who makes the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala in abundance during the day in the night and in his prayers specifically, and reads the Quran during the day and during the night. This is a good sign that this person is genuine in his love for Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is also a sign that Allah azza wa jal loves such a person, because he has granted him the ability to remember him. While Allah azza wa jal, he has deprived so many others of remembering him during the day in the night, and hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen the one who has completed the hash, that is his situation after and
how he's supposed to be a person now, well connected with Allah azza wa jal through the Corolla he subhanahu wa taala.
And this message is the same. It's the same for the person who witnessed the 10 B's of Malaysia.
That you my brothers and sisters in Islam, are also supposed to be connected with Allah azza wa jal throughout the day in the night with Vikram Allah subhanahu wata Allah. So Allah azza wa jal clearly he said, for either Kobe to massacre come once you finished your has rights for good Allah. Can we click on add a comma or should dedicado make mention of your Lord in the same manner you make mention of your parents?
And an even intense and a more mention of him SubhanaHu wata Anna. And so you know the child,
any child when he's young and he's growing, and the first words that he knows is mum and that he continues to only scream out mum, dad, and you notice a child, whether he's going through times of ease and happy moments, or whenever the child is distressed, and he's sad. In both times, he calls up Mum, Dad, that's a child. He'll call out mum and dad in difficult times, and in easy times. And so you notice, the one that did and harsh, and he finishes and harsh Allah promises that He is like a newborn. So now when you come out of a house, and you're a newborn, you're literally a baby, between the hands of Allah subhanahu wa taala. The only thing that you should know now is Allah azza
in all situations of life, in moments of ease, and in moments of difficulty, such a beautiful area, the way Allah is, so he can mentioned a difficult, but then you're supposed to make vicar of Allah even more than a child makes mention of his parents, when he is young. I shut the vehicle. Remember, it is a vehicle that is going to give you worth and value on the Day of Judgment, according to how much you made dhikr of Allah, according to how much value you will have in the sight of Allah subhanahu wa taala. And according to how much liquor you made in your life,
according to where you will be in the Paradise and what level you will be those that are in the highest highest of levels of the people that made the most thicket of Allah subhanahu wa ala throughout their life.
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, I want to share with you a few important matters after al Hush, that the judge the pilgrims of the house of Allah azza wa jal must be aware of about six to seven important matters. The first important matter that the judge must be aware of those who have performed Alhaji must be aware of
is that you're supposed to do what is a sign of an accepted hash? How do you know that your Haji has been accepted. And so I see here my brothers and sisters in Islam, the first important matter that you're supposed to realize and be aware of after and harsh, you're supposed to be seeing positive changes in your life, after harsh
if you're harsh, was completed correctly, and it was accepted by Allah azza wa jal, then the sign of that is a person would be changing, he would change concerning his attitude with worships His dealings with the people who change to the better, and his manners or also change to the better
accepted hash, you must see a positive key change in your life.
And this change, if you notice a change in your worships, in your manners, in your dealings with others, and in the way you give others their rights. If you notice a key change to the better, then this is a sign of an accepted harsh, Mahatma. And that's why I wrote about why Muhammad Allah they see from the signs of an accepted harsh is that a person's situation is much better after hash.
So if a person was bad, before hash, he becomes good after her.
And if a person was good before hash, he becomes much better after and hash.
And Allah subhanahu wa taala. He said in the Quran,
while many active has another nested loving fee house that anyone who does a good deed, we will increase in goodness for him.
Meaning anyone who does a good deed, for example, in this context here, whoever does the good deed have a harsh
what's the sign of it being accepted Nezzie low fee house that we will increase in goodness for him, meaning
other doors of worship would open for him and he becomes in a much better state
in terms of his worships and his manners.
So this is something important to take note of
and to see and to observe within yourself after a hush.
Have you come back to being a better person?
How is your worships after lunch?
How's your relationship with the prayer after lunch? How are your minutes
How are your words? How are your dealings with people?
Have your good words increased? Have you cut down on the bad words? And the rude words?
Have you removed bad manners from your life?
Have you replace these bad manners with good manners?
Are you more humble towards the creation of Allah azza wa jal
and you're adhering to the commands of Allah azza wa jal?
Are you doing that better than you were before then?
If that's the case, then on hamdulillah that's an important matter to observe and to see within yourself and how she is a life changer. Six days that puts you in a machine that is supposed to change your life completely. So that when you come out from the other side, you come out pure, you come out and clean, your tongue comes out pure and your heart comes out pure and your actions become more pure. This is the state of the people as it should be often harsh.
And this is why there was a great emphasis on Taqwa during harsh Allah azza wa jal you mentioned
what the Kuma while Allah has shaadi.com have Taqwa of Allah be conscious of Allah be aware of Allah fear Allah and Allah azza wa jal mentioned this during the i f of n hash. And then he said what is uh, what do for in the Hydra Zadie Taqwa the best preparation is a Taqwa being conscious of Allah. And then Allah would say eliminate taco taco Allah.
These are all in Athens and in salt that Allah azza wa jal says the Telecom in your office in sha Allah if a name Interpol collude.
The Taqwa of the heart.
Allah mentioned this in salted hash. And then Allah azza wa jal said also in the ayat pertaining to Al Hajj, Li Ananda Allahu Allahu Allah de met one Wallachian, no Taqwa of income, Allah azza wa jal is not going to receive the blood and the meat of your sacrificial animal. Allah doesn't benefit from the meat of the animal when you slaughter it for his sake. What does he benefited? What does sorry? What does Allah azza wa jal take? What does he receive from you? He's okay, he says, well, elke and Andrew who Taqwa income, Amar receives the taqwa from you. He receives your taqwa, he refused, he receives your obedience. This is what Allah azza wa jal sees. So there was a a great
emphasis on a Taqwa during and harsh.
And this Taqwa is supposed to carry on after al Hush. It's supposed to carry on. So when you pray your prayers on time, that is a manifestation of Taqwa. That is a sign there is taqwa residing in your heart.
And when you give you as a cat, and when your man is a good, and when you're remembering Allah in the morning in the evening, all of this is signs that you actually benefited from a Taqwa that you displayed throughout the days of a hash. So this is how the believer is supposed to be. And my brothers and sisters in Islam,
ponder over the Hadith that mentioned the virtue and the reward of a harsh
ponder over these Hadith. Very important that you ponder over these Hadith. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said
that the righteous except that hush
doesn't have any reward except the paradise.
When the peace of Allah Allah, you ascend them says, Anyone who performs harsh and avoid sexual talk, and he avoid sins and transgressions, and he avoids arguments. Then he goes back to his family like a newborn
would never be some Allahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned in the Hadith that the most the which Allah azza wa jal frees people from the Hellfire is the Day of Arafah when maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam mentions that on the day of autofac, Allah azza wa jal makes the angels bear witness that he has forgiven the people of the day of alpha. When maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says in the hadith of unbroken house, one that has Yeah, the mecca of Kabbalah hope that the deed of a hash destroys everything before it LoJack about ponder over these virtues and rewards of a hash, the hash, it destroys everything before it.
And the question is, what was before the hash?
Before Husch there were yeas and yeas of sins and wrongdoings and transgression. The che upon has been working on you for years and years.
After the harsh yeas and knees of sins and wrongdoings has been destroyed, Allahu Akbar, what a huge blessing from Allah azza wa jal. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, preserve this goodness
and hold on to this reward that Allah azza wa jal promises for those who complete their hash correctly.
See, this is the point. This is point number one that we're mentioning
that you must notice a change within yourself.
And then hold on to this change.
And don't lose the goodness. After the hush. Don't lose it. Allah azza wa jal, he says, well, at the Kuru can let the Nakaba Muslim embark the Quwata and Katha Allah azza wa jal, he says, Do not be like this woman. There was a woman in McCann old woman, she would sit the entire day, the entire day. And she would
be doing the knitting
of fabric. She's putting fabric together, mean by the CO team. And she's put a lot of effort and a lot of strength and power emitting this fabric. And at the end of the day, after spending hours and hours putting this fabric together, you know what she does? She undoes it all. She unravels, she undoes all her knitting. How silly is is Allah azza wa jal says do not be like this woman.
Yanni, the example is of a person
who does allow you any good deed and there's a lot of effort that is supposed to be done when you do a good deed.
You know, the hush you spent a lot of money you got onto the aeroplane you suffered. You got to unhinge, you did the day of meaner The Day of Arafah. The night of most deliver the day of higher power for sorry and home.
Mila and the stoning. All of this is like a person putting a fabric together. You've brought all these Hassan Earth and you've put them all together. Allah azza wa jal, he says do not undo these Hassan and do not destroy them. How do you destroy the Hassan
by turning against the commandments of Allah has solution and obeying your knifes and obeying your desire and turning away from the commandment of Allah. And going back to the old habits, and delaying the prayers and going back to the Islamic dress code and removing the jab after and harsh. All of this contributes towards undoing the goodness of a harsh winter however, La Quwata illa. So that advice from Allah has so Asian, he seemed to don't go back after you have moved forward in your relationship with Allah. So again, you know, I give you an example. Imagine someone built a house, brick by brick until he completed the house.
And then after he completes building it, he starts to bring it down one brick at a time until he completely destroys it. How sad. What would you say about a person like this?
That's the exact same person that went and did and harsh. And he built he built he built his relationship with Allah. And after Alhaji comes in he destroys it. Because of his wrongdoings and his sins and his bad manners and his bad dealings and his bad words and his deleted of Persona
and his neglectful attitude towards the commandments of Allah and so on.
He destroys himself We ask Allah azza wa jal for protection.
So be shy, be shy, my brothers and sisters Be shy from Allah Subhan. Allah is the One who gives you the ability to do a boy, Allah give you the ability to do a sign gives you the ability to drink zamzam. Allah gives you the ability to stand on alpha, and to do the stoning and to do dua on our offer. And it was deliver and throughout your house, so be shy of Allah has solution. And don't undo the goodness after you have exhausted yourself. Putting it all together. We ask Allah azza wa jal to protect our to preserve our good deeds and to keep us steadfast. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, the second matter that is important for the project to be aware of, for those who have completed
there harsh. The second matter is that from the positive effects of a harsh is that it has a huge impact on the heart
and harsh so
opens the heart and it humbles the heart. One more, one more he, one of the greatest, greatest positive matters of a harsh is that it softens and it humbles the heart. And you know the heart that Allah azza wa jal gave us it has many qualities, has good and bad qualities. Some of these bad qualities Allah mentions in the Quran,
like a lot of sickness, a llama, the blindness of the heart, hypocrisy of the heart, the envy, the jealousy that the heart can have. These are qualities of the heart, but at the same time, the heart has really good qualities. And one of the good qualities that Allah mentions about the heart is an IQ bat. Allah azza wa jal, he says in Surah Al Hajj, while the shooting will be team, congratulate, the more bid will bet is a person I will move it is a person with a humble soft heart.
And an homage by the permission of Allah has the ability to humble the heart.
Allah mentions that this characteristic, this quality of the heart and bat within me is of Hush, open up to salt and how. And you will find that midway through these air that explain the rules and regulations of a harsh Allah who would speak about and move between
the people of Tibet, the people with a soft, humble heart, and you know this word, a lot of it, it comes from the word a lot.
And in the Arabic language,
when they say,
I will hope to, and hope to, it refers to the land that is low and flat, A flat, low and low land is known as our boom or butter.
And this type of land, the land that is low and flat.
It is a beneficial land, because it retains water on its back. And people and animals can come and benefit from it, they can drink from it. That's an urban matter.
And so the heart that is most bit
the hub that is described with a bat.
It means that this heart becomes a source of goodness
and it becomes eager to accepting the good and accepting beneficial knowledge and acting upon it.
That's the word Elmo bit.
And this of course is contrary to the arrogant part.
You know, the arrogant thought, if the act of Allah and the commandments of Allah were to be recited on an arrogant heart and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was to be recited to an arrogant heart
then the person would reject that's a sign of an arrogant heart. This is why in the beast Allahu Allah Unison let me describe the arrogant heart as bottle will help you a humbleness bottle will have rejecting the truth and belittling people. That's the sign of an arrogant tongue. That's arrogance. When the truth is presented, of the commandments of Allah and what Allah azza wa jal prohibited, and then you find yourself rejecting what Allah commanded and belittling people and mocking people and insulting people. That is a sign of arrogance. Just like at least at least he's the most of the arrogant because he rejected the truth. When Allah told him to make salute to Adam,
and that's a commandment of Allah. So it's the truth, he rejected it. And he belittled Adam, when he said, I am better than him. I'm created from fire he is created from clay. So he became doomed and destroyed. That is what arrogance is.
But the heart there is more bit.
The humble heart will accept the truth
and it will crave for the truth.
Subhanallah and it would be little man, mankind humbled heart a person that is more
who will love the creation of Allah azza wa jal and he will be humble towards them. And he will not see himself above anyone.
And of course, he will hope that he is better than everyone on earth in the sight of Allah subhanho wa taala. That's the humble hub. So Allah azza wa jal made mention of the humble person
During the art of harsh, simply to teach us, the person who focuses on his harsh and concentrates on his harsh
from the positive effects is that it will soften his heart. And it will humble his heart, no doubt, look at the harsh. I mean, you have to take your clothes off, right? And that's humbling enough, then you need to wear two pieces of white clothing. That's for the humbling a person.
And then we go to midnight, and you sleep in a tent, and to the left and to the right and in front of you. And behind there are hundreds of people all sharing the same earth. And then it was deliver, we are sleeping all together on Earth. During your house, you cannot cut your hair, you cannot put perfume, you cannot clip your nails.
how humbling is this? And how you humbles a person.
And you realize from the words of the Hajaj, I always, always, always hear people saying this. And it's it's kind of beautiful to hear because these people are learning the lesson. They say Allahu Akbar, look at us all on Autofit we're all wearing the same. And we are all here for on purpose. And we are all calling on to the Allah solution.
There's no difference between the white and the black, the rich and the poor, is no difference and how she is a humbling experience. Even even Malcolm X Rahim Allah when he did, and he experienced the House Trip, he went back to America, bringing back the strong powerful message to his people, teaching them that I did something and I experienced something in my life. That would be the solution to racism on Earth. And that is and harsh. That's the words of of Malcolm X. He documents this matter. For him. Alhaji was a humbling experience.
To Him. It is the solution to eradicate racism on Earth. That's what unhashed is. It's a humbling experience, workable. And that's exactly what Allah azza wa jal mentioned in the ayat of a harsh, he mentioned give good news to the movie team, to the people with a soft, humble heart. And he mentioned this during the layout of how to teach you that unusual humble view. Allahu Akbar and then Allah azza wa jal mentioned four qualities of the humble people.
He said a Lavina Eva Luca Allah who was at Kulu boom, they are people when Allah azza wa jal His name is made mention of
their hearts become afraid.
Afraid of Allah's punishment, and Allah's Anger and Allah's curse. When Sheila Kulu boom, the hearts tremble and they shake when the remembrance of Allah has so we can just mentioned that means that the remembrance of Allah has a positive effect on the heart. It softens the heart, or Sabi Lena Adama or Saba hope. And the people have a humble heart. Their second quality is that they are patient over whatever afflicts them any calamity in life, they are able to be patient towards it by saying words that are pleasing to Allah, and continuously doing what Allah azza wa jal commanded them to do. They don't abandon Allah's commands during a calamity.
That's a humble heart that remains obedient to Allah even in the most difficult of times, when McLean is solid, and the humble heart is the heart that establishes the prayer. Only Melrose Akane homeomorphic code, and from what We have provided, they give the humble heart gives gives from what Allah azza wa jal has given it.
Whether it's wolf or feeding others or sheltering others or teaching others or advising others, they give one in Melrose Oklahoma code. That's a humble herb. And all these formatters that I mentioned, are matters that are practiced by those that do and harsh, more hardcore.
So the hirji, those who have done the pilgrim pilgrimage to the house of Allah, so he must benefit from this humbled state of the heart that they are given after lush and so you must always be concerned to preserve this humility of the heart and work towards preserving it.
And that's why from the dua of a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to make a long die from the start he used to see a big ol Neela cache kilo like a kilo like a warehouse. Like Me Up wire unlike a Betta, Allah and rissalah
While he was sitting there, he used to say, Oh Allah, make me from those who are grateful to and from those who remember you and make me from those who turned to and from those who are obedient to and from those who are humble, laka, betta
la Akbar. So it is very important to ask about So shall to make your heart humble, because of the heart because if the heart is humble, it will accept the truth.
It will accept the Word of Allah, and the commands of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
But if the heart was arrogant, it will reject the truth. And that would be a path to the hellfire. That's why in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam will always emphasize the matter of the heart.
As he said, Allah in the future, so the mobile would say there is a there is a flesh in the body, that if it was to be upright, the entire body would be upright, and if it was corrupted, then everything else will be corrupted. And he said, that was the heart. So that's why it's very, very, very important to focus on the heart. Focus on the herb. ask Allah to grant you a humble heart, and even more betta
ask Allah azza wa jal to remove the evil traits of the herb. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam always, always used to emphasize on the heart, because if the heart is in a right position, if the heart is upright, then all your actions and deeds will be correct.
But if the heart is corrupted, and has transgressed, then everything you do, will be corrupted as well as in the use of Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, therefore the heart is the essence of goodness, or the essence of a person's evilness. We ask Allah azza wa jal to save us,
my brothers and sisters in Islam, the third Mata that I want to share with those that have completed and harsh
is to say that from the important matters after harsh is to make mention of the blessing that you experienced throughout your hash.
And the success that Allah azza wa jal granted you to complete the hash. So, counting and making mention of the blessing of hash is considered being grateful to Allah subhanahu wa taala for this opportunity, one of the CLF his name was
sorry, sorry that Hari or Hema Hola.
When he used to come back from a harsh he used to tell the people
Allah social blessed us with such and such. And he blessed us with such and such and he used to make mention of the blessings that He experienced throughout his harsh
was stellar for him at home Allah they said, the one who makes mention of Allah's blessing is considered to be grateful to Allah's blessing. just mentioning the blessings of Allah is a means to be grateful to that blessing of Allah has solution. And so you notice, sometimes
among the people that have performed the hash,
in their gatherings, when they go back to their families, their relatives their massage it wherever they go on Earth, they make an effort to mention the difficulties and the hardships they went through and harsh why.
You notice that the people together and they start talking about everything that went wrong in the harsh this was an organized, Wallah, we suffered a lot with the buses. The weather was like this, the weather was like that. The difficulty the organizers, the guides this the food wasn't good, there was not here why? Why? You notice that people make effort to mention every hardship and difficulty they experienced in our house. And they forgot to mention the blessings of Allah azza wa jal upon them during and hush.
So make mention of the blessings because when you make mention of the blessings, it moves the heart in the right direction to remain grateful to Allah azza wa jal, Allah said like in Chicago to La see the Neko. If you are grateful to me, I will increase you.
So being grateful to Allah's blessings does two things.
have proven was really born as an asset.
Being grateful to Allah preserves the current blessings you have in life and brings new blessings to existence for your own self.
And you know, the entire reason of harsh Allah azza wa jal, he says at the end of eight that are related to and how he said lead to Kabiru Allah, Allah had come on
She didn't mind sitting.
He legislated the entire hash, so that he can declare the greatness of Allah based on that which he goes to do.
This is an area that concludes the eight related the hash in salted hash.
So you're supposed to meet vicar of Allah Azza vision and declare His greatness and be grateful for Allah because of the guidance he gave you.
You know, and in Surah Al Baqarah, Allah azza wa jal, he said with guru Kamiya Hadouken,
make mention of Allah azza wa jal in the same manner he guided you. Meaning make a beautiful mention of Allah. In the same manner, he gave you beautiful guidance.
If it wasn't for Allah azza wa jal, his guidance and his ease upon you, you would have never fulfilled that Hush.
So instead of mentioning the hardships and the difficulties in the terrible organizations, and whatever it is,
and the struggles of the house, put them on the side and mentioned what Allah guided you to,
say Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah, Allah granted us the ability to stand on our offer.
He gave us the ability to do our power, to do the stoning, you know, second Hamdulillah, Allah azza wa jal granted us this opportunity, that we worship Him and be humbled to him
mentioned because when you say that you are being grateful to these blessings, and I tell you something, my brothers and sisters in Islam Allah,
if this harsh that you did,
if it indeed wasn't accepted harsh, then all your sins would have been forgiven.
And your neck would have been freed from the hellfire. And you would have secured a position in the Paradise.
So that means this hush would have been better for you than this walk the life and everything that's in it. So keep making mention of the good things and the blessings that He experienced during our house. If this was an accepted hedge by Allah, you wouldn't want it to be in any other way, but the way it was.
So be very careful in how you speak about and how and how you underwent this harsh, just make mention of the blessings and the good things that he experienced. And of course, the reality is there are difficulties in harsh there is bad organization from time to time. There is no problems, seek Allah's reward for these moments. seek Allah's reward. You see the hardships gone now. The difficulty is gone. It's finished, Deborah was back in his country, sitting and relaxing with his family with his children with his own.
Yeah, I knew that difficulty is gonna help us.
If you are patient, upon those moments, they become a source of reward and has an ad for you. So what do you get anybody complaining about?
And hamdulillah I'll actually had
the fourth matter my brothers and sisters in Islam that I want to share and mentioned with you. Also, from the important matters after all, is to ask Allah azza wa jal for acceptance.
To always ask him not to accept your harsh the Companions all the Allahu Anhu him from that time until this very day. The Companions whenever they used to meet each other after their eat, and after Ramadan, they ate a little football and after a little abhart which is the eight that comes after lunch.
They used to meet each other and say to each other the Kabbalah Mina women may Allah accept from us a new
so it's very important to always ask Allah so again, to accept from you and from others of the believers and the Muslims and ponder over the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam, even cathedral him Allah He mentions a story
that will hate ignored whenever he used to recite the ayah and so little baccara
What if your father Ibrahim will provide them in a debate? What is married or a Beretta Kabul Mina in the Cantus semi aniline
whenever we're heated nor used to recite this area he used to cry. He used to cry. This area is speaking about Ibrahim and dismay, building the house of Allah azza wa jal and at the end, they both said Our Lord except from us, in the Countess semi or an ally, so Well hey, Pablo. He used to see how you do love the friend of Allah, which is Ibrahim. He's building the house of Allah, by the command of Allah and he feels it might be rejected. So he's asking Allah to accept and used to cry Subhan Allah
So it's very important to ask Allah azza wa jal to accept from you, when you will do when you do a righteous good deed.
Especially after you continuously ask Allah or better to compel Mina, ask him not to accept your hunch and to accept the hash of the Muslims that did Hajj with you as well.
Lord, so shall he says and salt known from the quality of the believers will love you know to them at Baku modular tune anomala Arabic embrasure own from the quality of the believers. They give what they give, while their hearts are full of evil,
because they will be returning to the Lord. I shall be Allahu Ana. She said something incredible concerning this area.
She said, Yeah, rasool Allah is this is speaking about those who drink alcohol and they steal. He said no. They have been tested there. No. Yeah, hi, Aisha. No,
he said this AI is speaking about people that fast and they pray and they give zakat and charity. However, they are afraid that Allah azza wa jal does not accept the good deeds. Hula Can you say their own offense a lot, such other people that rushed to do good deeds, while hula has said the code and they are always those to fulfill the good deeds first, before any of mankind.
So the AI is speaking to us about a quality of the believers. They do the good deeds. They do a harsh they do a solid, they do the cat they do the good deeds. But the heart is always fearful that the good deed they did might be rejected.
And so as a result, they ask Allah for acceptance and that gives them motivation to continue to worship Allah azza wa jal. So ask Allah azza wa jal to accept from you.
And remember, Allah azza wa jal only accepts from the righteous in Marietta Kabbalah, Allah Homina look, the team, Allah says, Allah only accepts from the mata ki, the people of righteousness, the people of Taqwa. So that's very important to pay attention to now ask Allah for acceptance. The fifth matter I want to share with you, my brothers and sisters in Islam, those who have completed on hash is ponder over the fact that
when you want to do the hash, you always was seeking knowledge about how to perform a hash correctly. Right. And you read a lot. And you watched a lot of videos and a lot of lectures about how to perform a correct hash. In I myself, so many shares, watching lectures, listening to lectures, reading books, how to perform a hash correctly, how to get the best out of your hedge, how to do a hedge, had little pamphlets, everyone is just investing time into knowledge, knowledge, knowledge, how to do this harsh correctly, right, that's the state and condition of people naturally, they're going hungry, they want to know what they're doing, and how the house is, is done
correctly. And then not only this, they've read everything about the house, but they continuously ask. So we had many people asking, what do we do now? What do we do? How about if we did this? Is the hash accepted? If we did this is the hash correct if we did that? A lot of questions. So the advice here, my brothers and sisters is keep this energy alive. And this eagerness to learn keep it alive.
Keep learning your deed.
You see the time you invested in the eagerness and the passion you had to learn about and how to keep that going after and how to learn your religion. Learn how to pray correctly. Learn the commandments of Allah. Learn what Allah has prohibited upon us. Learn the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Learn how to make wudu correctly.
Perform the deeds in a correct manner pleasing to Allah azza wa jal in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, may you read the left will be higher on you for COVID de if Allah azza wa jal wanted goodness for someone, he gives him a deep and a rich understanding of the religion. So be that person that Allah wants good for and go commit to learning your religion seek knowledge, learn Halal will haram the prohibitions in the command's Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Sidman silica Padukone in terms of illumine Sahel, Allah Allah will be your political agenda. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says anyone who seeks a path to learn his religion, Allah who will facilitate an ease a path
for him to the paradise. seeking knowledge is a route to the paradise. So just like you are eager to learn about a house
and a correct house, then have this
same attitude to learn everything else about your religion.
This is very important. There's a very nice story here about Ebola and all the Allahu Anhu. And how he teaches the people one good lesson in their life. I will read all the Allah one after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went out to the marketplace.
And he condemned the people. He said to the people, were you How come? He said to the people whoa to the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being divided in the masjid and new people are still here in the marketplace. So the people quickly rushed to the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thinking, you know, they want a piece of this dunya what is an ERISA salams inheritance What is he left behind?
So they went to the masjid Abu Huraira stayed in the marketplace, because he knows that they're going to come back. So they went inside. They didn't see anything of the inheritance of Rasul Allah being distributed. Some of Allahu alayhi wa sallam.
So they came back to the marketplace, and they saw Ebola. While Behold, I don't obey Allah on Saturday, Ma, what did you get? What did you see?
They said, We never saw anything being distributed. There was no inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being divided. He said to them, what did you see? They said, We saw gatherings of knowledge. Someone was teaching someone and someone was teaching someone else a hadith. Knowledge was being shared and advice was being given. That's what we saw. He said to them, were you How come? He said to them, whoa to that is the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophets and the messengers. They don't leave behind wealth and materialistic matter, to be divided and shared.
Rather, the scholar or other the prophets and the messengers, they leave behind knowledge. People inherit knowledge from prophets and messengers, and Saba horrid, audibly Allahu Anhu taught them a good lesson.
He taught them a good lesson, that this is the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It's knowledge. So when you learn something, you've inherited something from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it keeps you connected. And you know, who are the people that inherit it usually family, family inherit from the dead person. So when you learn something that makes you like family with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it strengthens your time with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So don't deprive yourself of this goodness. Wouldn't it be sallallahu alayhi wa salam as Salah model the Allahu Anhu says, After every single Salat and fissure, he would say Allah
who met in the US Alka in beneft. O Allah, I asked you for beneficial knowledge. He used to say this. That means it's one of the goals and purposes of the day to learn beneficial knowledge. So make sure you learn at least one thing of your religion every single day. One thing only
learn one thing about your deen when hamdulillah there's plenty of books, there's a lot of knowledge, many lectures online, you can listen to and learn something of your deed and implemented. Because when you implement the knowledge that you learned, that's beneficial knowledge than official knowledge is the knowledge that you act upon and you implement. Now.
The sixth Mata I wanted to share with my brothers and sisters in Islam,
those that have completed at home and that is this ponder over the state that during your home, when you are in house in the time of haram,
you abandoned many haram matters.
The unknown as Mathura to the Haram such as not allowed to clip the nails. You can't cut any hair, no perfume to be applied for the men you're not allowed to wear fitted clothing.
people in the state of Ohio are very concerned to keep away from that which is how they're very concerned. So you see that attitude. See that attitude you had when you were really concerned to leave out the Haram during the State of Ohio.
Carry on with this attitude and avoid the major sins after lash. Avoid the major sins.
When maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the farewell harsh, he said he said to the people,
Allah in nama Hoonah.
They are formatters to keep away from lead to Shady Kubelet he shade do not associate partners with Allah
Keep away from a ship, the major ship and the minor ship.
Keep away from a ship altogether. Wallahi my brothers and sisters in Islam, you will not believe
the amount of ship that the people have fallen into today.
When we say ship, many people think shift is just to illustrate an idol, or belta an idol worship an idol. That's, that's, that's a part that's a form of shake.
A shake is greater than that.
People that, for example, you know, there are zodiac signs, that is there on social media. If you read the signs, and you make decisions in your life based on zodiac signs, had a shake, had a shake.
This is terrible. This is a disaster. The blue eye. If you believe in the blue eye, that it has a separate power to protect you. Besides Allah had the sheikh Akbar, a person becomes a careful
but if you believe that it's a means to protect you, but Allah, he's the ultimate protector that miner should.
How many people fall into these matters, amulets as all that are strapped around the arms on the neck. Having some some words has a ship if you believe this is a means of protection.
So many people fall into a ship and they don't even know about it.
So Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in the farewell Hush, keep away from a Sheikh.
He says let Dr Luna Salah haram Allahu 11 Do not kill the innocent soul except rightfully
when it does no do not commit any Zina don't commit any Zina keep away from Xena was Xena is many forms Xena is not one for that's the major zener which is the illegal sexual penetration of a man a woman without a marriage contract. But then in the resolve Allahu Allah you or send them tells us that the I commit Zina
watching and looking at the Haram tweets very easily accessed on social media, on Instagram, on Facebook, on Tik Tok on Snapchat on whatever it is, it is so easy for the eye to consumer Hello.
So after harsh do not commit Zina with your eyes
and the tongue commit Zina by speaking that which is out of inappropriate chat conversations with the opposite gender that is a form of Xena and the hand covets Zina,
when it touches and it types what's inappropriate, and the foot commits Zina When it walks and haram
so be careful Xena is not one type would not be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the farewelled Hirsch. He said, Let us know keep away from Xena altogether. And he said well let us Riku and don't steal
don't steal, don't cheat, don't lie.
All of this was the advice of Osama Sana send them during and harsh. And during this parallel. The people when they're in the state of a hub. They are concerned because of one hand that falls one here Phil, is my house still accepted or I accidentally put perfume is my house you accepted
all of this no problems during Hello. If done unintentionally, no problems. And if done intentionally. There's an expansion you can do you can work it out.
And these harems of Iran are not greater than these major sins that I mentioned.
So you happen to see the people in a house you're very concerned not to do that which is haram in the state of your home. And after how you very easily commit the major sin, not caring
shaving the beard whether he was he was worried about one hair falling during harm. But then after harm, he shaves the beat or the haram to shave the beat Hara
or the sister goes back then and Islamic dress code had the disease Hello. Ella hijab is not only for the six days of a harsh and jab is a dress of a lifetime.
So the Muslim system must be aware of this Naira
and commit to it for the rest of her life.
And if a sister never used to wear the hijab before hush and wears it often this is a woman
from her house and she received the taqwa during a harsh
and she's rectified her state before Allah has solution. And this will be very beneficial for her on the Day of Judgment when she stands before Allah has solution. But humbly Lao ask Allah azza wa jal for steadfastness and goodness now, and Muslim is an all rounder, not only focus on your worships Muslim focuses on his worships keeps away from the hollow focuses on what he eats. He eats only that which is halal keeps away from that which is haram. He focuses on his income, make sure his income is halal keeps away from filthy dirty income. Also the Muslim make sure that his environment is halal. And his friends are good friends around him and keeps away from bad company that will destroy
him in this life and in the afterlife. And the Muslim looks into his dress code and makes sure that which he is wearing is pleasing to Allah and correct and keeps away from inappropriate clothing and clothing that is displeasing to Allah Now I'm gonna Muslims and all rounder not just worships, worships in your food and your income and your dress and your environment are your friends. I had that this is the life of a Muslim.
So make sure that you're living a proper Muslim. You've entered Islam fully completely. Had this is the true Muslim. Your manners Good. Keep away from bad manners. Now I'm gonna ask Allah azza wa jal to accept from us all. And when hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. This is what I wanted to share. We ask Allah azza wa jal to accept our harsh ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to forgive our sins and our shortcomings. We asked him Subhanahu wa Taala that He grant us all an opportunity to perform high G of the AF D and that he accepts our harsh from each and every single one of us. We asked him Subhanahu wa Taala to accept our gathering to forgive our sins, our
shortcomings into admittance into the highest levels of the paradise. I ask Allah observation that he made this lecture beneficial for us all. And if I said anything that is correct, that is from Allah azza wa jal, and anything that I said is wrong, that is from me, and from the shape on and I ask Allah azza wa jal to forgive me for that. Allahu Allah. Wa sallahu wa Salam o Baraka, let it be, you know, Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi marine was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
