meaning the pillars of
the pillars of a bada? You see, Alhamdulillah Islam has helped us and favored and showed mercy so that we may understand and comprehend each and every aspect of Islam, each and everything about Islam, each and every issue related to Islam. In a more clear sense.
In this regard, the pillars of a bother the pillars of worship, there are mainly three. Number one is love. Number two is fear. And number three, is hope.
Number one is no love. This
is required for us to understand and believe and practice that we must love. Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the creator of everything that exists more than anybody else. When you submit yourself when you love someone, when you agree with someone, when you acknowledge to the truth, when you know when you have deep down in your heart, some love for that person. And the love of Allah subhanaw taala is really, really required and essential. And this is a pillar of Alibaba. This is the pillar or the essential element of Alibaba. First is love. And this love it should supersede the love of everyone and everything. And last minute Allah mentions in
three Toba surah number nine and number 24, Allah subhanaw taala counts out five relationship, your parents, your brothers and sisters, your spouse's your, your relatives, your friends, your kids and kids, everyone, all these five religions and Allah subhanaw taala counts all the really all the properties that you have built the homes that you love to live the businesses in you in which in which you fear of loss, all these materialistic things and all these relations Allah says if you love these five relations, and these three things more than Allah and His messenger and striving in his way, in the last panel dialysis photorhabdus then wait until Allah comes, sent decree upon you,
Allah sends a punishment upon. So we need to realize that the love of Allah subhanaw taala it should be our top priority, and that is the pillar of Riba, number one. Number two, the pillar of the bada is fear.
You see, you just can't have love in your heart. Otherwise, you will
just live your life with the with the passion of love, and you will never be corrected, unless and until you have the fear as well. If you just have love and no fear, then you will be lost. Why? Because if you if single element of a badass worship will ruin you because you will do anything and everything in the name of love. How did the Shrek started? How did it begin? The associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala, the Association of partners with Allah It started in the name of love. They used to love them because they were good people and later, they start worshipping idols. So that led them to destruction. So just love will not help love and then fear. Fear Allah subhanaw
taala it means being conscious of Allah. It doesn't mean that you are scared of Allah. It means that you are conscious of Allah, you're aware of a lot. You are being
observed and you're having that experience of Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhanaw taala if you go away, he will
Issue, if you deviate from the right path, He will punish you. So that fear will keep you always stick to the read and ibadah of Allah subhanho wa Taala The third is the hope you have lost, you have fear, and now you have hope as well. Whom you hope better than allow. He is the one who is the owner of everything. So deep down in your heart, you know, you know that you're a sinner, you know that you have committed wrong, you have done mistakes, but still, you must have the hope in the last panel Tyler, that he will inshallah God willing, he may forgive me. Yeah, he may forgive me. So you need to have these three elements joined together in order to make your ibadah meaningful and
powerful. Love, fear and hope. These are the three pillars of the bar. Hope that answers your question. Yes, but rather what is what is the meaning of a bar.
As I've mentioned, the word rabada it means wish. And hamdulillah Islam being a way of life, Islam being a way of life, it has taught us that anything, and everything that consolidates that goes with the Koran, and the teachings of Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him is
We know that the essentials of Islam are five, we know that the essentials of Islam are five, as mentioned in Al Bukhari volume number one, chapter number two is number seven, that Islam is based on five pillars to believe in Allah and His Messenger, to establish Salah to pay Sokka to observe fasting and to perform Hajj if you're able to. These are the five essentials of Islam. But this is not Islam. In complete sense. These are the foundations, the pillars and the principles of Islam. However, anything that you do, which goes with the Quran, and the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam is a part of you. Isn't it so interesting, and that makes Islam as a way of life. For
example, if you're being kind to your parents, even if they are non Muslims, if you're being kind, respectful, affectionate and compassion towards them, this is one of the highest kinds of about Allah subhanaw taala says, instead of an insert in Surah, number 17 and 23 that it is decreed upon you that you worship none except Allah, and you be kind to your parents.
If one of them or both of them attain the old age, do not say off to them. Do not say a word of contempt to them. Don't say
to them, even this expression, even this expression is counted as a sin in the sight of Allah and on. And on the contrary, if you are being kind to them, if you are being very affectionate to them, that is a bother to a muscle. That is a worship to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, in the same way is you are being lovable. If you are kind to your own wife, to your own children, you're taking care of their responsibilities as your ought to take that responsibility as a husband that is worshipped.
So the concept of worship, in Islam is in everything and anything that you do, if it is for the sake of Allah, and in the way of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that's the worship of Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala mentioned into the anom surah number six and number 162 say to them in most certainly salatu wa no Suki, Maria Rama Murthy. lillahi Rabbil aalameen my prayer, my sacrifice my living my dying out for a law the Lord of the woods. So everything a Muslim does to please Allah in the way of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a worship to Allah in the seminar grounds if you own halaal income, permissible income, right? Not indulging into haram
activities, prohibited activities or ways you are actually doing worship Allah subhanaw taala a student who is struggling, who is studying to pass his examination for the sake of Allah. That's the worship to Allah. If you are smiling at your
Brother, or any Muslim, if you're smiling, the acts of charity and charities of worship to Allah subhanaw taala. If you are removing any harm on the street on the way, that's a worship to Allah subhanaw taala. If you are saving a life of an innocent person, as Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Surah number five is number 32. If anyone kills an innocent person, whether it be male, female, or child, whether Muslim or non Muslim, if you kill any person, it is as though you have killed the whole of humanity. And if you save an innocent person, it is as though you have saved the whole of humanity. So the concept of worship in Islam is beautiful, anything and everything that you do for
the sake of a lot to please a lot in the way of prophets, Allah Allah
that is worshipped.
So that is a bada means in Islam. I hope that answers your question.
