00:00:03--> 00:00:20

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah sahbihi wa sallam in Al Hamdulillah Ahmed who want to stay in holiness the Pharaoh. One of the villa him in Cerulean fusina was the TR Marina Maria de la Fernando de La Villa de la

00:00:21--> 00:00:23

la ilaha illAllah

00:00:24--> 00:00:35

Muhammadan Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam. So come to LA tonight we will proceed with Hadith number 16.

00:00:37--> 00:00:45

In this series of Hamdulillah, after finishing 15 Hadith and taking a little bit of a break, we're back in sha Allah to Hadith 16.

00:00:46--> 00:00:47

And this hadith

00:00:48--> 00:01:35

is about the relationship between our beliefs and what we have in our hearts and also our outside behavior, our actions and how our actions are related to the state of our heart. This is a theme inshallah, that I hope will become clear and strong in our minds as we progress. We've addressed it before but also as we progress, that what's on the inside influences what's on the outside and vice versa. The opposite is also true, what's on the outside, influences what's on the inside, and both of them change each other. So in this heady the state of your heart is linked here to what happens on the outside. And also there's a definition from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam about true

00:01:35--> 00:01:57

success and true failure and Ninja with Fisher. So what is a ninja what is success in life and what is special in life and in the Hereafter as well? So the Hadith is very sure, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, have abdon wa sera Lamia jalila, who will be here of methylene Basha

00:01:59--> 00:02:30

Hagia Abdullah hasura lineage Linda who will be here and in Basha and it translate as the one whom Allah Subhana which Allah did not put in their heart mercy towards other people has perished and isn't lost. So how about a hustler a hustler is to lose have a hustler close in meaning huddle hustler is to be in lost to lose to fail. So this person who Allah subhana wa tada did not put in their heart,

00:02:32--> 00:02:43

mercy towards other people, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam declared that he has lost his in loss. And this loss in show as we will see covers both loss in this life and in the next slide.

00:02:45--> 00:02:58

So the one who does not have Rama is not successful in this life. And in the next slide. So we want to understand what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam here is saying, and what is the importance of Rama?

00:02:59--> 00:03:04

And why we should have it in our hearts and how actually does it lead to success?

00:03:06--> 00:03:09

So the first thing let's let's just consider Rama.

00:03:11--> 00:03:11

Mercy

00:03:13--> 00:03:28

when it comes to the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala the attributes of Rama is one of the most important attribute in our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is our connection with Allah is the connection of Rama.

00:03:29--> 00:03:43

Okay, our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala is a relationship that is built on the notion of Allah subhana wa Taala whether it's a Muslim or a non Muslim, Allah Subhana Allah is merciful with everybody.

00:03:44--> 00:03:53

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, in Allah ke turbin Kabbalah and yes, Luca, Luca

00:03:54--> 00:03:58

in the lobby for homework tonight.

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

This is voted by Al Bukhari.

00:04:03--> 00:04:19

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us about something that happened before Allah created all of this before the creation of humanity and the skies and the earth, right and this entire universe, Allah subhanho wa Taala sort of made a declaration.

00:04:21--> 00:04:47

Right? You know, we hear sometimes of a declaration of intent, this is what I intend to do, and then people do it. So Allah subhanaw taala is making their a declaration that Allah has written something in a lie ketaki Java before that he had created everything. Allah had written something with him, and that is still with him. Above the throne of Allah subhana wa Tada. And what is this thing that Allah had written? In naramata? He is.

00:04:49--> 00:04:54

My iraq map receives my anger. It comes before my anger.

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

Right. It's greater than my anger. So why did the last

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

cannot imagine no i did a lot of panel with Allah before creating all of this right that this is a declaration that Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to create all of this out of Rama and deal with all of this out of out of Rama.

00:05:15--> 00:05:39

You follow me in sha Allah and Allah subhana wa tada when he's saying that in naramata server katavi that Mayra hammer comes before my anger means that when these people that I'm going to create, they make mistakes and they will make mistakes, and they will repeat these mistakes, and then we have a lot of problems. If a lot of other anger will proceed his or her mad and Allah will destroy everybody.

00:05:40--> 00:05:42

That Allah will punish everybody.

00:05:44--> 00:05:56

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, something to that effect that if Allah subhanho wa Taala were to punish people, what they have done, hold them responsible for everything that they're doing along will destroy this universe.

00:05:58--> 00:06:02

So Allah Subhana Allah says, This is not how I'm going to deal with them.

00:06:03--> 00:06:07

It's not my anger that's going to come for us. It's my ultimate, it's my forgiveness.

00:06:08--> 00:06:17

It's overlooking their mistakes. And that also that the creation of all of this is happening also because of

00:06:18--> 00:06:24

when you see in Surah Rahman. When Allah subhana wa Dallas's or Rockman animal Quran Hello Collinson.

00:06:25--> 00:06:40

He chooses a rough man to begin with, right the name of Rama so what is our recommend do avoid the last panel data choose that word autorama and that attribute that slicker or rough man to tell you that what comes afterwards comes from what?

00:06:42--> 00:07:11

From Rama right? This is what I recommend does. Otherwise if it's a if it's a punishment that Allah subhana wa tada will choose a different name, Al Qaeda or ISIS or al Jabbar and we'll say al Jabbar this this. He was saying a Rahim like the generous this word generous gives money, the generous is going to help so less dependent on dialysis. So what is our Rockman? Do? I learn Quran? So you know the teaching of the Quran the revelation of the Quran comes from what

00:07:12--> 00:07:20

Allah Rama Allah so the Quran is a book of Rama inshallah we'll come to that. The Quran is the book of Rama that teaches that

00:07:21--> 00:07:25

bestows Rama, she is the Rama of Allah Subhana Allah to add or

00:07:26--> 00:07:29

insert, he created humanity Who did that?

00:07:31--> 00:08:03

So the creation of humanity and you can go to the books of Tafseer several books of 50 that will tell you that this tells you other eyes also tells me that the creation of humanity came out of the realm of Allah subhana wa tada that Allah want it to be merciful with these people. And you know, have them enjoy the blessings that he's gonna give to them in this life and also in the next life, how they respond to it is different, but that Allah one and this refers to all of them, one at this mercy to all of them, and a loss of kindness. taala also says in the Quran,

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

Allah, Allah

00:08:09--> 00:08:13

and Allah you have encompassed everything, in knowledge and in Rama.

00:08:17--> 00:08:32

That he Allah you have encompassed everything in knowledge and in lafuma. So think about this ayah will become back in sha Allah to this area and what we can learn from it, but consider this ayah Allah has knowledge covers everything, right?

00:08:33--> 00:09:07

And Allah knows about everything. past present, future Gen and detail every single small thing Allah knows about. So this knowledge of Allah covers everything, Nothing escapes it. So hey, the same thing with Allah subhana wa Adana, because both of them are linked. What's the coolest shape, even compassed? Everything, everything, with Rama and with knowledge, if Allah His knowledge covers everything, then similarly Allah Rama covers what? Everything?

00:09:08--> 00:09:09

Absolutely everything.

00:09:10--> 00:09:17

And it does not exist and it cannot exist without Grace of Allah subhana wa Tada. You will see even the caffeine,

00:09:18--> 00:09:19

even the capital,

00:09:20--> 00:09:44

of course, even the capital of Allah in Allah subhanho wa Taala even he receives that optimove Allah subhanho wa Taala every single second and minute and day, he's receiving the retina of Allah subhana wa Tada. Otherwise, how could he? How could he breed? How could he continue to live? How could he escape pain and disease and all of this, his life is only possible

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

through the run of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So Allah extends to cover every single thing that Allah created, as you knows about it, he has mercy for it. And as he you know, has mercy for it. He knows about it. And this also

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

tells us about the grace of Allah subhanho wa Taala is different and greater than our schema because he knows everything.

00:10:08--> 00:10:14

I will come to that point where you know, the level of your Rockman is related to the level of your knowledge.

00:10:15--> 00:10:58

The level of your Rockman is related to level of your knowledge, like someone that you don't know is a stranger asks you for money, let's say, how much are you going to give them? You may give them something 100 or 200 times are you generous enough to give 100 200 you don't know them. But if you know them better, you love them or you like the more you understand their suffering. How much will you give them? More? Right? Why are you gonna give him give them more because you know more about them. So Allah subhana wa tada knows everything about us, knows our strengths and weaknesses, knows what's good for us and what is not good for us. And one who understands your weakness and what is

00:10:58--> 00:11:06

good for you is Russia for you, is greater and better than the one who doesn't know about all of these things or his knowledge is deficient,

00:11:07--> 00:11:18

is inferior. So our Rama always because our knowledge is inferior compared to the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala. Our lemma that our Rama does, is inferior also.

00:11:19--> 00:11:22

And we'll address this in sha Allah when it comes to humans in sha Allah shortly.

00:11:24--> 00:11:29

And one of the greatest nemesis of Allah subhanho wa Taala or aspects of his argument is what

00:11:32--> 00:11:38

is as a loss of power of dialysis unlimited plan. They are taught the Quran Allah says forgiveness is the greatest Lama

00:11:39--> 00:12:02

more than the Rama food, or the aroma of having security and peace or the aroma of money or the aroma of family. All of these things are harmless. But the greatest Rama that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives is the amount of forgiveness and the aroma of patience with us that he doesn't punish us immediately. As he said, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:12:04--> 00:12:24

he's not quick to anger with us, but he realizes and is patient with us to the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala, for instance, that Allah subhanho wa Taala a person could be living a long life, this obedient of Allah subhanho wa Taala it Allah subhanho wa Taala assistant towards the ends of his life, and he repents, and he changes.

00:12:25--> 00:12:33

And maybe he lives like that a year or two, and then he dies. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will accept that from him and forgive all of his previous sins.

00:12:35--> 00:13:12

If he's sincere in his repentance, of course, we should all bank on that. So I'll live my life whatever way I want, and then towards the end, they'll just reform and that will be fine. Of course, we can't just depend on that. But I'm giving myself and yourself an example of that this can happen. And that's from Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He doesn't say, Oh, no, you've lived 80 years, disobeying me and only two years obeying me. No, I'm gonna punish you for the ad and they reward you for the last two. Now Allah subhana wa Jalla says the last part, the last thing that you've done, that's the thing that I will accept from you. And if you actually repent, I'll accept that

00:13:12--> 00:13:13

repentance from you.

00:13:14--> 00:13:19

And other evidence of Allah is what is that you do one single good thing.

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

This isn't only written as one.

00:13:23--> 00:13:43

How many times 10 times and for some deeds based on the benefit of that deed, and also your intention and my intention, Allah could multiply it even more, more than 10 times, and to 700 times, and even more, for one single thing that you do.

00:13:44--> 00:13:48

As far as the bad things that we do, are they written as 10 or 700?

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

They're written as one.

00:13:52--> 00:14:06

Just one. So this is the ROM of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, that he had made the scale of your good deeds heavier, a lot heavier than the scale of evil deeds and even the evil deed that you do and it's written as one

00:14:07--> 00:14:29

yet you have so many opportunities for that to be wiped away any good deeds that you do could wipe this away. So yeah, fasting had, right, all of these things wipe away since so, so many opportunities for you to gain the Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala and escape his punishment. That's the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala Rahman r Rahim.

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

One of the most often repeated Names of Allah subhana wa tada is a rough man or Rahim and there's something interesting about these two names. You know, why did Allah subhanho wa Taala decide that before every surah every surah in the Quran? You recite these tunings, and no other names. Except Rahman Rahim. Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim, Allah subhana wa Taala has 99 names, or even more that we know of in the Quran, just in the Quran, and

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

sooner, a lot more than we don't know about.

00:15:04--> 00:15:09

So why is it that a lot choose a Rahman Rahim specifically, before I reach to LA

00:15:11--> 00:15:15

over Allah could have said Bismillah Halima Kabir

00:15:16--> 00:15:48

In the name of Allah subhana wa Taala the most knowing the most knowledgeable, that would be appropriate, but it will be appropriate because these are attributes of Allah subhana wa Taala that reflect and tell us about the aim and people of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you will find in the Quran, Hakim hubiera name or the whatever name of allah subhana wa Taala with somehow we appropriate to a surah of the Quran. So Allah could vary these names that consistently you say Rahman Rahim This is again a confirmation of what

00:15:49--> 00:16:14

that what you're reading is a book of Rama. Here is this book from Rahmani Raheem so powerful Allah, you're coming across and you're receiving now that of know Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah read this book from a rock man Rahim. You go to the next surah read the suit of Mr. Rahman Rahim you go to the next I read this if Mr. Rahman Rahim so all of this is coming to you and me from Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:16:15--> 00:16:27

And it's amazing that he had connected to the Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala continuously. So you want to see the ROM of Allah one of the main main places to see it in the is in the book of Allah.

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

And Allah Subhana Allah tells you about it.

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

And for those two names of ramen Raheem

00:16:38--> 00:16:50

the name of man both are exaggerated forms coo Bella exaggerated forms in the Arabic language of man is the one who's filled with mercy. Many men men intelligence arama.

00:16:52--> 00:17:00

So if you say for instance, a person is about the band, he is filled with anger. So a man is filled with mercy.

00:17:01--> 00:17:26

Rahim is the one who delivers this mercy to his creation. This is the difference between the two. The scholars talk about other differences but lo Adam the clearest difference between the two is this. Jani rockmount circa two that is an attribute of Allah subhana wa tada and himself that he's filled with mercy. Or Rahim is the one who delivers this mercy gives this mercy to his creation.

00:17:27--> 00:17:31

So he's rough man and himself Raheem with his slaves.

00:17:33--> 00:17:49

Right right man and himself. Rahim with this leaf. And the second Rahim you can use this attribute or or this refer to describe other human beings you can see this person is not a Rahim. But you can say that this person is

00:17:51--> 00:17:53

merciful or very merciful.

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

Allah subhana wa tada described who in the Quran as Rahim,

00:17:59--> 00:18:08

the prophets of Allah, Allah was a little bit more menino for him, right? So he has this rough man with believers

00:18:09--> 00:18:17

by him. But man is only appropriate for Allah subhana wa Tada. You can say about any other human that he's the rough man.

00:18:18--> 00:18:26

This is the name that can only be given to a loss of power. Without that there's only one who's filled with mercy is a loss of Hannah with that.

00:18:28--> 00:18:51

So this is to panela to tell us more about the Lord that we worshipping and to understand Allah subhana wa to Allah better than one of the most defining attributes that we have in dealing with Allah subhana wa tada when hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen is the attribute of Rama and this is the attribute that we need the most for Allah subhanho wa Taala we need a lot to forgive our sins.

00:18:53--> 00:18:56

And we need Allah subhanho wa Taala to remove our pain and to answer our

00:18:58--> 00:19:05

and to secure our happiness in this life and in the next and all of this happens to the Rommel Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:19:07--> 00:19:36

and this is why the name of our ramen Rahim is one of the names also that Allah subhana wa datalogs have with us habitus May Allah Abdullah Abdul Rahman, the best names that Allah Subhana Allah loves are Abdullah, the slave of Allah and Abdul Rahman the slave of man. And both of these two names are only appropriate to Allah subhana wa jal and they are unique to Allah no other being can be called Allah and no other being can be called a rock man or even rock man or be described as an Imam.

00:19:38--> 00:19:48

Now we understood briefly in sha Allah Rama when it comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now we want to understand Rama when it comes to his creation and when it comes to us.

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

Now Rama when it comes to us,

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in this hadith and following howdy

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

In this actually a beautiful Heidi,

00:20:02--> 00:20:04

he says in the Lila he and he attended me.

00:20:06--> 00:20:14

In an era he and he attended and a lot of Allah has vessels from the people of this earth

00:20:15--> 00:20:37

containers. So Ania inna is a vessel and a container. Allah has vessels or containers from the inhabitants of this earth, wanting to become and the vessels and the containers of your Lord of Allah subhanho wa Taala or pollute the pain or the hearts of his pious sleeps.

00:20:38--> 00:20:51

Well have moved to LA de la cuchara and the most beloved of these hearts to Allah subhana wa tada are the softest and gentlest. This Hadith is authentic. How do you display?

00:20:53--> 00:21:04

So again, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, that he has on this earth from among humanity, vessels or containers, the vessels of Allah, what do they contain?

00:21:06--> 00:21:06

contain?

00:21:07--> 00:21:11

This is what they contain, what do they carry, because these vessels are the hearts.

00:21:13--> 00:21:30

So there's nothing else on this earth that is a vessel that can be destroyed a vessel or a container of a loss of power without Of course not the majesty of a law but that these vessels and containers belong to Allah. They belong to Allah. They're carrying something that Allah loves.

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

So these are the hearts

00:21:35--> 00:21:36

that carry in the email.

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

Allah sends email,

00:21:40--> 00:21:52

and since guidance and sends the appeal and sends it, who they are, and all of this, what containers on this earth carry these things. And this is the most precious thing that our lowest sense more precious than rain.

00:21:53--> 00:22:02

Right? more precious than food. more precious than anything else. What did these containers carry? These carry the most precious thing that our last panel was Allison's

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

email.

00:22:05--> 00:22:11

And because they carry the most precious things, they are the most precious thing to a loss of Hanover that

00:22:14--> 00:22:18

you follow in Sharla they carry the most precious thing.

00:22:19--> 00:22:23

And because of that they are most precious to a loss of Hannah with that.

00:22:24--> 00:22:26

And among these hearts that are vessels,

00:22:28--> 00:22:39

the most beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala are the kindest and the gentlest the kindness and the gentlest heart is the one that Allah subhana wa tada loves the most.

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

How are they kind of gentle.

00:22:44--> 00:22:47

They're kind of gentle when it comes to Allah commands.

00:22:49--> 00:22:51

They readily submit to it,

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

that this heart is really gentle

00:22:56--> 00:23:05

and and really responsive to the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when Allah says do they do it, and when Allah says don't do it, they run away from it.

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

So they're really responsive, really soft, when the commands of Allah subhanaw taala not harsh and hearted,

00:23:14--> 00:23:16

not hard or harsh.

00:23:17--> 00:23:28

And they are also soft and gentle when it comes to the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada because Allah phrases in the Quran, those who when they receive the Quran, they cry

00:23:30--> 00:23:35

and their body trembles and their heart softens.

00:23:36--> 00:23:47

So when receiving the commands of Allah subhanaw taala they respond and when they hear the verses of Allah or someone reminds them of Allah or the rember death or the remember their sin.

00:23:48--> 00:24:24

They're very soft as well. They cry, out of the fear of Allah subhana wa Taala they cry out of the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and they're also soft when it comes to the slaves of Allah subhana wa Taala when it comes to the creation of Allah, they're also very soft and very gentle. When they encounter someone with a problem, they really feel for him. And they tried to help, but they found someone in trouble, they will feel as if they are themselves going through that pain and they will try to stop that pain and help in whatever whatever way they can. So because these hearts

00:24:25--> 00:24:31

draw nearer to Allah subhana wa to Allah and Allah is the most merciful, they also become merciful.

00:24:33--> 00:24:38

They also become merciful in the same way that when you become closer to someone

00:24:39--> 00:24:52

and you somehow absorb some of their attributes and some of their qualities by proximity by being close to them, you absorb some of their qualities. When you come closer to the Most Merciful

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

and you know his qualities and attributes and that He is merciful. You will absorb that mercy yourself.

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

You will become more merciful. with Allah's creation.

00:25:06--> 00:25:17

The prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam describes that one of the people one of the categories of people who will enter Paradise is the person who

00:25:18--> 00:25:20

has Rama in their heart.

00:25:21--> 00:25:26

So he asked yourself sometimes, am I a person who's going to go to Jenna?

00:25:27--> 00:25:40

What qualities should I have to enter heaven? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that one of those categories is water, Julian Rahim on rocky hill can be equally hobo Muslim,

00:25:41--> 00:25:53

and a man who is merciful and kind hearted to every kin, and to every Muslim to every family member and to every Muslim, this is his heart.

00:25:55--> 00:26:00

And this is how he behaves and this is how we approaches every single person around

00:26:01--> 00:26:25

and this hat even specifies a family member and a Muslim and the hadith of this chapter, it is open in general to all humanity, let me tell you love will be your lil Basha to all people. So this how do you feel specifies because of course, your family deserves more of your kindness and mercy, not less but more.

00:26:26--> 00:26:30

And Muslims, of course, deserve more of your kindness and mercy,

00:26:31--> 00:26:45

more, not less. But this person, it does not matter. Who is he facing? Who is he talking to? They all received from him Rama. And this is a sama is the basis on which he deals with them.

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

The basis on which he deals with them.

00:26:49--> 00:26:59

And the moment also knows him the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that when you want to receive mercy, what are you supposed to do? Show mercy.

00:27:00--> 00:27:09

So when you're supposed to when you want from Allah subhana wa tada that he be merciful with you. You have to show the same attitude towards others.

00:27:11--> 00:27:26

As you are with other people, so Allah subhanho wa Taala will be with you. What take that as a general rule. If you like mercy, then it's been very hard for you to expect mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:27:27--> 00:27:39

If you like generosity, how do you want to be generous with you? If you like forgiveness? How do you want to let to forgive you? So here's a loss the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said rahmanir

00:27:42--> 00:27:46

rahim Allah the Merciful will receive the mercy from Allah.

00:27:48--> 00:28:23

Have mercy on the people on this earth or actually have mercy on everyone and everything on this earth man or woman Fedora general Have mercy with or on this earth and Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you mercy from above your ham command system and the man who is above his throne above this heavens will give you mercy. So you give human mercy to other human beings and you can expect divine mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is Allah subhana wa tada is dealing with you.

00:28:24--> 00:28:34

You will note in this hadith a hint and you can connect it to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah created this universe for and why he created it and in white way he's dealing with it.

00:28:36--> 00:28:39

What is the reason that we said that our last panel with Allah created this universe.

00:28:41--> 00:28:52

So this rock man, right, like created this universe and humanity out of his Optima and Allah subhana wa attallah deals with humanity through his Rama

00:28:54--> 00:29:02

and still a lot of Hannah's bad his objective is that a hammer and when you try to fulfill Alice's objective and you do not contradict it,

00:29:04--> 00:29:14

when you try to spread this Rachmat and increase it, Allah will also be merciful with you because what you're trying to do is also to fulfill allas objective on this earth which is

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

is that point clear?

00:29:19--> 00:29:47

That point clear, should I repeat it? period inshallah. So, what is the objective What does Allah want to accomplish? Allah wants to accomplish raha man to spread the rock man on this earth. So the reason why Allah created was Rama and Allah wants to also spread Rama and increase it on this earth and he keeps giving it to everyone, whether they ask for it or not any the capital Subhana Allah may not ask Allah for anything. Yet Allah continues to be merciful with

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

the character may oppose Allah subhana wa tada and speak out against Allah as guidance and speak out against the guidance and yet Allah continues to be merciful with him.

00:30:01--> 00:30:04

So Allah wants this Rama to spread and to be abundant

00:30:05--> 00:30:29

and for everyone to enjoy it. So when you actually try to spread this Rama, you're in a sense you're working with Allah subhanho wa Taala not working against him, you're working with Allah. You're trying to fulfill the main objective that Allah Subhana Allah loves, which is Rama. So when you do that you're on Allah side. And when you're on Allah side, Allah subhanho wa Taala includes you in this form as well.

00:30:31--> 00:31:02

Now you can think about that the one who opposes this, will be deprived of Rama, or will not at least receive much of it. Because the one who tries to decrease the hammer denies Rama is one who's working for a law against the law, for our subjective or against the laws objective, against the laws objective, right? You're working against the laws objective. So when you're doing that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah hates it because Allah loves mercy, and love to be merciful, more than he loves to punish.

00:31:04--> 00:31:04

Right?

00:31:05--> 00:31:20

Allah Subhana Allah loves to forgive more than punishment. He punished is only when there's just no other way this person has left for Allah subhanho wa Taala. No other way but to punish this individual. There's no redeeming, you know, any redeeming thing left in him.

00:31:21--> 00:31:46

But as long as you have any redeeming quality in you, Allah subhana wa tada will forgive you. Even though initially, that person may be punished, maybe, or maybe forgiven. But as long as there is any redeeming virtue in this individual that Allah Subhana, Allah will forgive them. When there's nothing left, when there's nothing left for Allah subhanho wa Taala, but to punish, so Allah loves to forgive more than punishment.

00:31:47--> 00:31:50

Allah loves to be merciful more than to be angry.

00:31:51--> 00:31:56

So this is why when we say that if you want to receive Allah's mercy,

00:31:57--> 00:32:04

give this mercy to other human beings. And Allah subhana wa Taala will give it to you. And it's the son of Allah favor by the way.

00:32:06--> 00:32:12

And if you want to also consider, am I among the lucky and fortunate ones that Allah subhanho wa Taala is happy with.

00:32:14--> 00:32:39

Consider whether you have mercy do not consider whether our societies our communities, we as individuals, whether we have enough money or not, if you have Rama, it's a sign of Allah's assistance and to feel and happiness with you. And if not, then something is missing. So have to revisit yourself and revisit what we're doing to see how we can bring more joy into our lives. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:32:40--> 00:32:43

either or the law has the agenda elevating higher ah

00:32:47--> 00:32:54

when Allah subhanho wa Taala wants the best for a household He bestows upon them kindness.

00:32:56--> 00:33:04

So there's a family that Allah subhana wa Taala wants the best for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What does Allah give them?

00:33:05--> 00:33:11

kindness, kindness within themselves. This has been the household and also kindness with other people.

00:33:12--> 00:33:37

So when the husband is speaking to the wife and the wife to the husband, the parents to the children and the children to the parents, they're talking to extended family between each other. If Allah loves this family and wants the best for them, what will like give them kindness with each other mercy with each other forgiveness with each other? The way that they speak, they choose the best words, the softest words, not not the harshest.

00:33:39--> 00:33:52

Right and the most destructive words, the most abusive words know that kindness and softest words that they can find out they will use these. He will make them forgiving of each other.

00:33:53--> 00:34:06

They don't pick each other's mistakes and highlight them and complain about them. No, he'll make them forgiving of each other. They will make He will make them find excuses for each other. He'll make them overlook each other's mistakes.

00:34:07--> 00:34:16

He'll make them not overburden the other person with too many expectations and demands. This is what is to be kind and gentle.

00:34:19--> 00:34:30

He will not make them people who will constantly complain about what is missing and not see what they have instead. This is this is kindness This is forgiveness. And this is a sign of Allah.

00:34:32--> 00:34:37

If we find ourselves doing the opposite, that is when I'm wanting to speak to my children or when they want to talk to me.

00:34:39--> 00:34:45

They using the most difficult tortious words against me and I am using that against them. Then there is no difference there.

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

And you will find that family then the relations will become strained and difficult with my wife or with my husband right I'm not forgiving I don't overlook I don't ignore mistakes. I don't find excuses by always blaming

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

criticize and complain about them, then there is no difference

00:35:05--> 00:35:39

in that relationship, it's a difficult type of relationship that may not even persist and continue. Or if it does, it continues, but with a lot of pain, with a lot of suffering, internal suffering, if not even external. So at least there's internal suffering of, there's a lot of pain in this relationship. And I don't know how I can go on with it. Because the other person is not kind or does not reciprocate kindness. So as a panelist, if we find ourselves you know, in these types of relationships, then we have to understand that, to change them,

00:35:40--> 00:35:54

start introducing the document the relationship, you yourself, even before the other person starts doing it to yourself, start introducing Rama in that relationship. And you will see how Allah subhanho wa Taala will change the dynamics of that relationship,

00:35:55--> 00:36:21

the nature of the connection between you and that other person, the nature on which it's built, if you make it through the relationship, the entire relationship will change. And they will notice that you have become a more merciful person in speech and inaction in attitude, and in demands, more merciful. So when you become more merciful, they're very, very likely to become also more merciful just like you.

00:36:23--> 00:36:24

Because this is our nature.

00:36:26--> 00:36:30

This is our nature. When you find someone kind,

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

it's very hard for you to be unkind

00:36:35--> 00:37:11

unless you know that the person has nothing, no good left in their heart. So shallow, we're not talking about that type of individual. If you find that type of individual, and you keep giving, giving, giving, giving, and they give nothing back, and then eventually find that there's nothing good left in them, then this is the time for you to distance yourself from them. But we're not talking about that type of individual. We're talking about a person who I and you are suffering in this relationship because it lacks kindness. Right? We're always harsh with each other, using you know, you know, these these difficult, injurious words, you know, you're doing this and you're doing

00:37:11--> 00:37:23

this, you're not doing this, you're not doing that. So if you introduce kindness and mercy, the other person will say they're changing. They're kind, they're soft, so there'll be soft, too.

00:37:26--> 00:37:37

Oh, they know that I did a mistake here but they didn't comment on it. The next time that you do a mistake, they'll also reciprocate that attitude, that generosity and say okay, I will also not look,

00:37:38--> 00:37:39

I'll also not condemn and because of it,

00:37:41--> 00:37:45

and the way and the way that this progresses hamdulillah it makes life easier.

00:37:46--> 00:37:52

And this is also a sign of success, success and family life and it says success in social relations, you know,

00:37:53--> 00:37:57

as a whole. So if you want Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:37:58--> 00:38:09

to be good to you, you'll be good to other people and Allah azza wa jal will give you that in your life, you know personally and also in your family and in social and Sharla relations.

00:38:10--> 00:38:18

Now, what is the connection, inshallah moving and discussing deeper drama that we should have what's the connection between a man and mercy,

00:38:19--> 00:38:26

the connection between a man and mercy, we said, What is the greatest drama that Allah subhanho wa Taala can give us

00:38:28--> 00:38:28

the Quran

00:38:30--> 00:38:51

Rama, Rama of guidance he Daya Bahama forgiveness, so that he died that comes to us from Allah subhanho wa Taala is the greatest Rama more than any other Rama right. So, the person who receives the greatest portion of this Rama would be the most learned person the most knowledgeable person. Right?

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

My right.

00:38:54--> 00:39:05

And if you are so connected to the rational alasa panel who want to add that to His mercy, you also need to be the most merciful person. This is the connection.

00:39:07--> 00:39:09

So here again, inshallah, if it wasn't clear

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

guidance from Allah subhana wa tada is

00:39:15--> 00:39:20

the more that you get of it, the more that you get from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the more that you have,

00:39:21--> 00:39:25

the more that you have of Allah, the more Rama that you should have towards other people.

00:39:26--> 00:39:27

This is how it is.

00:39:29--> 00:39:42

And in no claim, Rahim Allah He says, in the eye and recorded before on our set, akula a locksmith and while he Allah you've encompassed everything and knowledge and and mercy he says that there is a connection between knowledge and the hammer.

00:39:43--> 00:39:52

When it comes to humanity as well. There's a connection between knowledge and Rama. The person with more knowledge has to be the person with greater Rama

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

and the person who likes Rama that's the reflection of the deficiency in his knowledge.

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

So the more that you have knowledge of a loss apana, without and it was prophets, Allah, Allah when he was in them, of Islam in general. And you also know about humanity, the more that you will have mercy towards them.

00:40:12--> 00:40:17

And the less that you know about this, about all of this, the less Lama debt you'll have in your heart.

00:40:19--> 00:40:20

So to Panama,

00:40:22--> 00:40:25

having more often is an indication of your knowledge, not lack of it.

00:40:26--> 00:40:31

And you will see that in how people, especially Muslims, deal with each other.

00:40:33--> 00:40:39

Because the level of your knowledge determines how patient you can be with other people.

00:40:41--> 00:40:43

How so let's let's take an example.

00:40:45--> 00:40:49

A person who was just started to learn about Islam,

00:40:50--> 00:40:58

and he was learning about solar and how to perform the Salah, and this is how you move and have this is how you bow and this is how we prostrate This is what you read this is this is what he had learned

00:40:59--> 00:41:11

about the importance of salah and then you know the door between us and and showcase Salah or the barrier between us and sugar soda and the whoever does not pray, has committed cheer, etc, etc, etc.

00:41:12--> 00:41:16

Now, this person with this level of knowledge when he meets a person who does not pray,

00:41:17--> 00:41:19

or meets a person who prays differently.

00:41:21--> 00:41:27

And this is the only thing that he knows, is quick to condemn the other person when they pray differently.

00:41:28--> 00:41:36

This is how I've been taught to pray this way, move in this direction, raise my hands this way. He knows no other way.

00:41:37--> 00:41:40

I'm not talking about an invalid way of talking about other valid way of Salah.

00:41:42--> 00:41:45

See, he has no other way so he's quick to condemn the other person

00:41:46--> 00:42:16

until the other person may come until I tell them no, what you've learned is one son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But there's also something else that he said something else that he did. And then he will say oh Subhanallah I didn't know his lack of knowledge meant lack of patience. We were the other person was doing. And so he was quick to be angry quick to lose his patience and it does not have recommend his heart. When it comes to what the other person is doing. So his heart is not big.

00:42:17--> 00:42:49

Or when he sees another person not praying and he just heard the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam what is between us a liability been an alibi brain on the covenant that is between us and them is solid Metallica believes it has committed this belief or has entered into this belief. He does not know about the excuses that can exempt someone from this heading. And above the interpretations of the scholars of Islam have about this had he so when he sees someone not praying, he may be quick to say that person is not Muslim immediately.

00:42:51--> 00:42:58

But the more that he knows or the more that she knows that they will understand that is more complicated than this. Right?

00:42:59--> 00:43:01

It is a lot more complicated than this.

00:43:02--> 00:43:06

So the person who actually has more knowledge should have more often.

00:43:08--> 00:43:15

Now let's see how inshallah because this is important training. Let's see how. First thing is that

00:43:16--> 00:43:20

when you understand that Allah once mercy for everybody.

00:43:21--> 00:43:25

You will also know that you would you should desire mercy for everyone.

00:43:26--> 00:43:52

When you know that Allah created all of this out of his Rama and that even with the most rebellious cavalry, he is still he still has Rama. You will also like Allah subhana wa tada will also have Rama towards everyone. Even though they might be very rebellious and disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you don't necessarily going to react to their rebellion and disobedience by saying you Allah destroy them.

00:43:53--> 00:44:07

Because up until this point, you don't know that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given up on them and has decided that they should go to hellfire. Up until this point, Allah subhana wa tada has given them the opportunity to repent and is still feeding them.

00:44:09--> 00:44:22

And is still still giving them drinks when they are thirsty and is still you know, answering some of their development, they make it and it's still saving them from home. And it's still still giving them health and still giving them this and this and this, you can see this.

00:44:23--> 00:44:31

So when you understand Allah intent and what Allah is doing with his creation, and then it's all based on Rama, you also will have as well towards everybody.

00:44:35--> 00:44:43

The second thing is that when we know and understand the needs and attributes of Allah subhana wa Taala we understand that we should worship Allah through them.

00:44:45--> 00:44:57

A Better to ye as though gentlemen hilarious man he was so glad that you worship Allah through his names and attributes. And some of these these names and attributes where it is appropriate to actually adopt some of these qualities you adopt them

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

some of these qualities

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

are particular to Allah you cannot adopt these qualities and uh well the first cannot become the first but you can come become become one Rahim.

00:45:12--> 00:45:23

So part of Iberdrola as well worshiping Allah through these names and attributes is that one alone you see that Allah is that a heme, you also become Rahim. That's a bad that's a bad

00:45:26--> 00:45:31

when you know that Allah loves mercy and forgiveness. You will naturally love what Allah loves.

00:45:32--> 00:45:36

As you hate and we supposed to hate what Allah hates, you will love what Allah loves.

00:45:37--> 00:45:40

So when Allah loves mercy,

00:45:41--> 00:45:46

you will become merciful. When you know that Allah loves forgiveness, you will also forgive.

00:45:48--> 00:45:51

And it's all contingent on what loving Allah subhana wa.

00:45:58--> 00:46:03

The one who has Depth of Knowledge also understand, as we've explained, also understands

00:46:04--> 00:46:13

the depth of Allah's mercy and the depth of Allah's forgiveness and that Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to forgive me and you every single day

00:46:14--> 00:46:49

and he continues to give us chance after chance to repent. And that when we repent that Allah subhanho wa Taala is happiest with this repentance and that he wipes clean our past sins. So when you understand the depth of Allah's mercy and mercy about the depth of Allah less forgiveness, you also will adopt the same attitude when it comes to humanity. You say Allah keeps forgiving me. Why can't I also keep perfectly forgiving people. Allah keeps being patient with me. Why I also can be patient with this person.

00:46:50--> 00:47:20

If a lot today for instance, or a lot yesterday or the day before that has decided that he had had enough with me, Allah will just take me away from this life. And Allah keeps giving me chance after chance, and keep delaying me so that I can repent and ask for forgiveness, why I can do this same thing with that other person when they do something bad to me. So you will start to exhibit when you understand the last generosity and you will start exhibit the same generosity and behavior when it comes to other human beings as well.

00:47:22--> 00:47:29

And this is this generosity Subhana Allah only comes when you understand and appreciate and then become happy that Allah is merciful with you.

00:47:31--> 00:47:41

And when you see that Allah is so merciful with you, naturally what is going to flow out of you naturally was going to be I'm just going to be merciful with people around me.

00:47:42--> 00:48:02

When you understand how much Allah is giving to you every day, naturally you will say to yourself, I just want to give other people as Allah is giving me your heart will ask you to do this Your heart will prompt you will force you to do this no one would actually ask you would have to ask your to remind you Hey be be kinder today

00:48:03--> 00:48:09

no one will have to do this because Allah is reminding you I'm kind to you today so you'll be kind

00:48:11--> 00:48:13

you know how someone you know how well

00:48:15--> 00:48:25

sometimes you're going through a passing or going through a door and somebody being his kind and he opens the door to you for you. Smiles go ahead How does that make you feel?

00:48:27--> 00:48:32

Nice right now this person respects me and nice and kind. What do you do after

00:48:37--> 00:48:40

he thank him? What else do you do?

00:48:42--> 00:48:43

You do the same thing.

00:48:44--> 00:48:55

Right? But with some person right? Okay, you open the door for me there's like doors right? You open the door for me. Say thank you very much. I go and open that door for him. And then he passes the Why did I open the door

00:48:58--> 00:49:04

reciprocate right did he have to tell me open the door? Did somebody have to come and tell me open the door?

00:49:06--> 00:49:09

So why did I do it? I received something nice.

00:49:10--> 00:49:30

That's what I'm talking about. You receive something very nice. And it made you feel so nice. And out of that naturally you want to be nice. So it said today have handled a lot of luck and sealed my sin and then something bad. Nobody knows about it and then you hear about somebody mistake see Subhanallah as a like conceal my mistake I'm going to broadcast his title.

00:49:32--> 00:49:33

This is how it is

00:49:34--> 00:49:41

so panela today you know i Allah subhana wa tada I got into an accident somebody stopped and helped me doesn't know me.

00:49:42--> 00:49:51

does not know me. They're not gonna gain anything from it. Allah is not even Muslim right but he stopped in help. The next time this happens with another person.

00:49:52--> 00:50:00

What are you going to be prompted to do? Let me stop. This is same thing what flows out of

00:50:00--> 00:50:24

My heart and your heart when we recognize Allah, Rama and generosity is just more generosity towards the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala regardless of their religion and color and creed and anything else, regardless, as Allah Subhana hotel is being merciful with everybody, regardless of what they believe your resume is to everybody, regardless of what they believe. This is how it flows. This is how it comes.

00:50:26--> 00:50:30

When the one also who knows or has depth of knowledge,

00:50:31--> 00:50:33

also understands human weakness,

00:50:34--> 00:51:01

and frailties and mistakes, and how all of us, we are poor and weak slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala, who every time every second needs Allah help and Allah support. Yeah, I know for myself, right, I know my own weakness, and how much I need Allah subhanho wa Taala to support me. And I know about the many, you know, mistakes that I have, and the many weaknesses that I have.

00:51:03--> 00:51:19

And I know that I would love for other people to look the other way when they find a weakness that I have to excuse me, when they find a mistake. I know that I love that for myself. And I also know that I would love them to assist me when they find that I need assistance. My right.

00:51:21--> 00:51:26

And I know that I need Allah's help continuously and constantly, otherwise I won't be able to do anything.

00:51:27--> 00:51:28

For you. Is this only mean?

00:51:30--> 00:52:00

Am I the only one who's like that? Every other human being is like that. This person who has done something bad right now maybe has done something bad, maybe has insulted me, because he's happening having a really bad day to day received really bad news today. No one has taught him that you should behave this way has not found recommend his life has not found kindness and gentle, gentle gentleness in his life. When I feel like that, for other people, it's easy for me for me then to be merciful.

00:52:01--> 00:52:06

You find and locate excuses for other people because you know that you yourself have excuses.

00:52:07--> 00:52:15

I'm late, you know, Subhanallah someone's late, and they made an appointment with me. Late five minutes. What happens?

00:52:16--> 00:52:22

Talking about how we're supposed to be right? Not how we are, how we're supposed to be late five minutes, what do we do?

00:52:23--> 00:52:55

This person does not respect me and does not respect time, not punctual. And not this and not that. Right? Why? Because this is my right now. And it's now easy for me to blame them and find fault with them. But now when I'm the person who's late, I'm running through traffic, and it's a universal panel, I hope that they'll understand. I couldn't control this, you know, this was beyond my control. I left home late Yes. But I would always like for the other person to excuse me and find reasons to forgive me. Not to condemn me. That's what I love.

00:52:56--> 00:52:57

So when I arrived,

00:52:58--> 00:53:05

when he arrives late, imagine yourself arriving late, and deal with them the way that you would love them to deal with you.

00:53:06--> 00:53:51

Again, not an excuse for us to say I'm 2030 an hour late. And you should expect to accept that for each other know, when it when it goes to that, you know, to that limit To that end, stop accepting any excuses. 510 minutes, 15 minutes, that's fine. It shall about half an hour or an hour and say, you know, that's fine. No, shall so we have to be punctual but at the same time, imagine that that other person is you. That's the level of your knowledge. Right? So knowledge is not only book knowledge, or memorizing it's actually knowing and understanding and sympathizing with other people. And that every single being out there is a slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. Abdullah as

00:53:51--> 00:54:09

well, if not by choice, at least by fact, the slave of Allah Subhana Allah and everyone has their shavon with them, and everyone has people for them, but also people against them and everyone has things that they suffer from in their life. So when you know this, you'll have greater kindness inshallah.

00:54:10--> 00:54:18

So we talked about the shaitaan. And yes, the intent of the chiffon by the way is to destroy this human being Muslim or non Muslim.

00:54:20--> 00:54:24

That is, imagine yourself competing with the shaitaan for the soul of that human being.

00:54:25--> 00:54:33

When you say Allah, destroy him and kill him and do this and do that to him, you're handing this person to the shaitan and say here, he belongs to you.

00:54:35--> 00:54:39

Allah did not put humanity on the face of this earth for them to go with the shaytan

00:54:40--> 00:54:42

he put them on the face of this earth to go to Earth man.

00:54:44--> 00:54:56

You follow me Charla he put us all on this earth to go to aroma. So when you find someone listening to a shaytani You don't say yes, go there. I'm gonna push you there by my

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

ears, sometimes the panela It's a lot easier.

00:55:00--> 00:55:19

better for me and for you emotionally and Eman wise when you see someone doing something bad, even a non Muslim hurting some Muslims, rather than the first thing that we should say Allah destroy them and punish them and do this and that even if you want to say this, but at least make a portion of your dialect guide.

00:55:20--> 00:55:44

Because what do you lose when Allah guides them? Nothing you gain yeah Allah guide them and you find that Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know that in one of the Hadees that when they came to them and they say, you know prophet of Allah make dua again so on so he says in Yamagata Anna, why, number two Rama, I was not sent to curse people, I was sent as

00:55:46--> 00:55:56

the I can make a dua against this person, and I can accept it and luck and destroy them. What did that how did that help me, I first I want to wish that this person be saved.

00:55:57--> 00:56:00

If he's not to be saved than the Allah protect from his heart.

00:56:02--> 00:56:12

But first I want that this person be saved, because this is how I win. So imagine that each person like the shaytaan that we have with us, each person has the shape on with them.

00:56:14--> 00:56:32

And we want Allah subhana wa Taala to save them because again, we want to increase and multiply and spread this mercy not limited, because this is what Allah loves. And this is what Allah Allah created this human being for his mercy. So let's try to win him for the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala not hand him to the devil.

00:56:33--> 00:56:50

And the last thing insha Allah of the reason that your knowledge will increase, or your Rama will increase when your knowledge increases, is that you will know. You will know and you will understand in detail that for you to get the Rama of Allah, if you need to give Rama to other people.

00:56:52--> 00:57:12

And with increased knowledge and increased guidance, you're more susceptible and open and receptive to this idea. Because you go to someone who's far away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you tell him, give Rama to receive Rama, that person is not even, you know, open and receptive to doing anything good. So they're not going to do it.

00:57:13--> 00:57:15

Or if they do it, they're not doing it for Allah.

00:57:16--> 00:57:18

But you go to someone with a soft heart

00:57:20--> 00:57:32

with a heart that has a man with a heart that is worried about the hereafter. Once genin is afraid of hellfire. And until that heart You know how you can receive Allah be merciful, that heart will be merciful,

00:57:34--> 00:57:40

will find and locate every opportunity to be merciful. And we remember civil with everybody and everything.

00:57:42--> 00:57:43

You know, the Hadith of the

00:57:45--> 00:57:53

man that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he was walking down a road and he found a branch, you know, or some phones

00:57:55--> 00:58:06

that were blocking the road and he removed them so that they don't harm anybody on their path. He removed it from that road and he continued to walk and Allah subhana wa tada put them in gender because of it.

00:58:09--> 00:58:10

Now this is Ramona.

00:58:12--> 00:58:12

Absolutely.

00:58:13--> 00:58:22

Now he doesn't know and you may not know and you will not know. Is the person benefiting from this Muslim or non Muslim you not know. This is Ramadan.

00:58:23--> 00:58:34

So why was it so it's such a simple act. But why is this such a simple thing so valued and so valuable in the sight of Allah subhana wa tada

00:58:35--> 00:58:36

because there's this person demonstrated

00:58:38--> 00:58:48

this person practice Rama, this person has done what Allah Subhana Allah loves to remove away harm and to bring happiness to people. So he did that.

00:58:49--> 00:58:57

Or the other person, the other man, and also another Hadith the other woman who was a prostitute who when they found a dog, very thirsty,

00:58:59--> 00:59:00

and they fell through this door.

00:59:02--> 00:59:19

And they said, This dog is suffering from the same type of thirst that I'm suffering from. So they went down a well and they brought out some water and they gave it to that dog and the problem of Allah subhanho wa Taala noted and appreciated what they've done. And he forgave their sins.

00:59:20--> 00:59:23

Again, this is not even with a human being.

00:59:24--> 00:59:27

Not with a human being. This is with a dog.

00:59:29--> 00:59:29

Right?

00:59:30--> 00:59:34

And again, it's not like I mean, I think in our Western sense,

00:59:35--> 00:59:59

we think Oh a dog you know, especially for the OBC non Muslims have a lot of dogs and the dogs are really pampered and clean and really taken care of. And it looks so cute and whatever right? So they are like, you know, special their pets. We're not talking about pets, we're talking about stray dogs, like if you're in a been in a country where they have stray dogs, you can just run this dog

01:00:00--> 01:00:08

Nikki just killed it. That is that does not matter. Another beautiful well taken care of pet, she's a stray dog

01:00:09--> 01:00:14

so a person can run them over and they will not even feel that they have done anything like it like a rat.

01:00:15--> 01:00:16

There's so many of them

01:00:18--> 01:00:21

so that's the kind of dog we're talking about a stray

01:00:22--> 01:00:42

and yeah, this person right took the time they fell through this dog. And they took the time and said, they have reached a level of thirst and pain and need similar to mine. So I will help them and this man, and that prostitute help Allah subhana wa tada admitted them into paradise because of this app.

01:00:43--> 01:00:48

So simple, a very simple act of Rama, the Las panatela rewarded so much for it.

01:00:50--> 01:01:00

And this is how much Allah subhana wa tada loves. So when you think to yourself, you think to yourself, is it really worth it to have Rama? Remember those headings?

01:01:01--> 01:01:25

Is it really worth it to be merciful with animals? Is it really merciful to be worth it to be merciful with non Muslims? Is it really worth it to be merciful with non Muslims? Even though the act I'm doing is very small? Is it worth it? Remember this howdy? And remember that that opens the gates of Allah Rama for you? And for me, when we have Rama for other people?

01:01:28--> 01:01:35

How is it that the document that we have or should have in our hearts is related to the concept of this gear?

01:01:37--> 01:01:45

Remember, we talked about this gear before the purification and edification of the heart? How we cleanse and purify our heart from sin,

01:01:47--> 01:01:52

from disease from illness, and also you know, increase it's a man How is this related to

01:01:54--> 01:02:09

what we say insha Allah and Allah knows best that he can only have Rama through the skin. You can only have Rama in your heart through this gear. What is the reason that people are not merciful with each other?

01:02:10--> 01:02:18

One of the reasons is that people are envious and jealous, when it comes to the other how the human beings were competing with the other person.

01:02:19--> 01:02:25

I feel that I'm better than you and you feel better, you're better than I am. I envy what you have, I hate you for what you have.

01:02:27--> 01:02:39

Or I have hatred because of whatever reason. When you are involved in take care of the heart, you are cleansing your heart from all of these diseases, envy and jealousy and arrogance and hatred.

01:02:40--> 01:02:42

All of this is going away.

01:02:43--> 01:03:14

And rather than being focused on the dunya, you're focusing on Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you have less of a reason for you to hate the other person and to deprive them of the Rama that you have and more of a reasons because now you're connected to the hereafter and you're connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala you have more of a reason to be merciful with that human being. Because you love Allah subhana wa tada and you love what Allah loves. So on your heart level, you're more ready for this Rama and you understand it better when your heart is alive.

01:03:17--> 01:03:25

When your heart is soft, this is what this guy does is soften your softens your heart and my heart brings life back to it.

01:03:26--> 01:03:27

Without this test,

01:03:28--> 01:03:34

the heart is hard and harsh. And the last panel data describes in the Quran

01:03:35--> 01:03:41

that one of the attributes and we've talked about this before one of the attributes of those who have harsh hearts

01:03:42--> 01:03:47

and their hearts are stiff is that they like mercy when it comes to weakened society.

01:03:49--> 01:03:51

They have miskeen

01:03:52--> 01:04:26

you know, that does not urge the feeding of the poor and hungry does not urge the taking care of the orphans. Lem Nakano Timon Miskin, we did not use to feed the hungry. So the Lamb of Allah Subhana Allah is tied to how much amen you have in your heart, then your heart will be open to because of its connection to Allah to actually give mercy and share it with other people. When the hearts on the other hand is stiff and hard and it's contract and does not have the men in it. It's also stiff and hard when it comes to other people. So like Rama in it,

01:04:27--> 01:04:28

it will like Rama.

01:04:29--> 01:04:59

So you want to develop this Rama in your heart and in my heart, cleanse your heart of disease and attach it to Allah subhanho wa Taala and concentrate on Allah's promises and on the hereafter and you will find that it's easy to dispense this ROM and to give it and to share it with other people. You won't give it to other people when you become stingy and envious and arrogant. And you hate people around you because of what they have done to you because you can't forgive them.

01:05:00--> 01:05:07

Because you can overlook their mistakes because you think that they will take whatever you have when this is going through our minds, we can't have

01:05:08--> 01:05:13

will deprive others of the mercy that Allah subhana wa Taala loves so much.

01:05:14--> 01:05:29

The last thing inshallah, that I want to say is that Allah Subhana the prophets of Allah, he was tied mercy to success and the heady because he said that the person who does not have mercy in their heart has failed.

01:05:31--> 01:05:36

So, conversely, the person who has mercy in their heart succeeds.

01:05:38--> 01:06:03

succeeds both in this life and in the next life. How does he succeed in the next life, because he has done what Allah loves. If he has, in his heart, it means that he has a man and he has what Allah loves in his heart, and he's doing what Allah loves with his body. So in the next life is successful. How is he successful in this life, he's successful, because people love the person who has,

01:06:04--> 01:06:05

they're attracted to this person.

01:06:07--> 01:06:44

And they want to assist him, and they love him. And if he you know, encounters any problem, they are always around to help. And he, if he wants to do something, he will find helpers by the will of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, because everybody knows, this person cares about me, this person listens to my problems, this person tries to solve my problems, this person is kind to me, so I will reciprocate with similar kindness and help and assistance. So whatever they decide in this life, by the will of Allah Subhana Allah and His whatever they decide to do, people will assist him and allow the system

01:06:45--> 01:07:04

so Allah loves him. And when he moves on and meet Allah subhana wa tada on the next life, last panel, which Allah will reward him for all the good that he has done, because Allah loves him, inside and outside. The person who does not have Rama is not successful. Why is he successful in the next life?

01:07:05--> 01:07:22

Because he does not have email. Email is either very weak or is absent completely. And that's why he doesn't have Rama. And he doesn't do what Allah loves. And he does not have in his heart what Allah loves. That's why he's not going to be successful in the next life. Why isn't he successful in this life?

01:07:24--> 01:07:25

to people like him?

01:07:26--> 01:07:30

No, they're repelled by, they want to be next to him.

01:07:31--> 01:07:32

They want to assist him.

01:07:33--> 01:07:38

I like that. It's like your your answer is very clear. I there's energy there. So did you want to assist him?

01:07:39--> 01:07:59

Pick him up, say no, got very good. I thought I embarrassed him but attempted, so no one likes him. No one's want to be near to him. No one wants to assist him. That's cruelty. You run away from people who are cruel and harsh. You don't want to be next to them, you don't want to listen to them, you don't want to deal with them. That's a fact of life.

01:08:00--> 01:08:18

So whenever they want to plan something, but when I want to do something, they'll find that people are running away, not towards them, running away from them. And a loss of power without also does not a system because Allah does not love the type of people that they are. So you have Rama, and Allah loves you, and people love you.

01:08:20--> 01:08:25

You become cool, devoid of drama, and a lot of dislikes you and people dislike you.

01:08:28--> 01:08:36

So if we don't have resume in our lives, on our societies, in our communities, and we have some times to be honest with ourselves and say this we sometimes like,

01:08:38--> 01:08:39

right? Is it only me?

01:08:41--> 01:09:16

So we sometimes really like rahama, individually. You know, sometimes we scare scare people away from coming to the masjid or to communities because of how little Rama we have, I'm going to go there and somebody's going to yell at me. I'm gonna go there and someone is gonna condemn me. I can see it in their eyes. Maybe sometimes we're imagining this, but sometimes it's really true. I can see they're in their eyes, and they're condemning me and judging me. So there is no drama. There's drama in our societies and Muslim societies, you go and visit Muslim societies and people, you know, are killing each other are at each other's throats there can't tolerate and be patient with each

01:09:16--> 01:09:27

other. They cannot. They're not forgiving of each other. So we like ohana. So we'd like Rama because of one of two reasons. Either we don't know that Allah loves it.

01:09:28--> 01:09:35

Right. And the remedy for that is for us to learn that Allah loves it. Or either we know but we don't apply.

01:09:36--> 01:09:59

We don't apply. We don't we know how important it is, but we don't apply it. And for that we need to reform our hearts so that our hearts become more responsive to Allah commands and do what Allah loves and what Allah hates for that we need to remedy or the remedy of email. Our email is weak. We know what the truth is. We don't follow it. And that's a disaster. The other disaster is that we try to

01:10:00--> 01:10:09

To follow it Allah subhanho wa Taala loves, but we don't know what Allah loves. So we think that Islam sometimes means being cruel and harsh.

01:10:10--> 01:10:39

Right, or very harsh, and that we should rebuke people. That's not the Islam that Allah subhana wa tada revealed in the Koran another Islam Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was sent as Rama to everything. So we need to relearn Rama and put it in our hearts. If this is this is the last in sha Allah statement. If Allah wants the best for you, and you want to know that that is true or not, consider if you have ramen in your heart or not.

01:10:40--> 01:11:22

And if you have it, thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for it ask Allah to preserve it and enhance it. And if you don't ask yourself, why is it Why am I missing something from my life from my heart from my actions that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves so much? Why am I missing it? And how can I bring it into my heart? So we ask Allah subhana wa tada the most merciful to make us of those who have Rama in their hearts to everyone that they meet, to make us of those that Allah subhana wa tada had fixed under form their hearts so that when we meet Allah Subhana Allah he would be happy and pleased with us. I mean, Dr. Bellamy was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
