Shakal ibn Humayd said: I came to the Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam and said: âO Messenger of Allah, teach me a protective dua with which I can supplicate to seek refuge. So he held my hand and said: Say: O Allah, I seek your refuge from the evil of my hearing, the evil of my sight, the evil of my tongue, the evil of my heart, and the evil of my private part.
Reported by Abu Dawud (1551) and al-Tirmidhi (3492). It is declared to be hasan gharib by al-Tirmidhi, hasan by ibn Hajar and al-Suyuti, and sahih by al-Albani (Sahih al-Tirmidhi 3492)
swindler hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah vasavi wassalam in Alhamdulillah Mohammed who wanna stay in Oman is stuck for one hour the villa him in Chateau de and fusina was he tr Medina, Mia de la philomel vilella homie glyfada hodja mana Chateau La ilaha illallah wa ala Muhammad Abu or sudo Salam O Allah you Allah and he or sabi was Silla. So, tonight inshallah we are meeting the 23rd howdy 23 yes howdy 23.
And this hadith inshallah continues, because we started the second section, the second section of the series, and in the second section, the last 20 Hadees, we said that this is the practical order, see, the more practical side of the book, where we are being asked not only to learn something, but also learn it and start applying it to take something practical from it. And we could have done so pound like that with all of the headings because everybody that you hear from the prophets obviously, you can turn it and take it into something practical and you can take practice from it.
But in these particular hobbies that come at the conclusion, the last 20 Heidi, specifically, they are put there, so that we can take something from them learn something from them and apply it every day. So, the first few hobbies are all about
asking a lot of panelists for something. And so this 23rd Hadid continues with that theme, the theme of investment Allah subhanho wa Taala because the very basis the first step that you take towards actually improving yourself whatever that improvement may be, in before I even go into the habit, whatever that improvement may be worldly improvement religious improvement,
family environment improvement, find out whatever it is the first step actually to gaining success securing success is
you know, before your plan before you know any step that you take before assessment before for anything else, you want a loss of data to help you see you will not be able to be successful in anything religious or worldly.
And so in our inshallah project or endeavor to purify our souls, fix our hearts, the same rule applies, how can this happen if our last panel data doesn't allow it? How can this happen if we don't ask the last panel of data for it? So the first few studies are all about asking a lot are all about
and we talked about in the last Hadeeth Hadith and inshallah we'll just hear focus a little bit about drabbit. Let's go first into the honey because we didn't even say what the Hadith is. So, Shackleton who made all the law, who was so happy,
I think to nebia salani he was sending them for who to Yasuo law and luminita who then our
for alarm India will be coming shortly semi woman Sheree boiserie woman shall release any woman shall recall the woman shall remaini
Tafseer on limit sharing money an e4 Joe
so shocker roommate
and he's a Sahabi and explanation they say that this is the only Hadith that he generates. So he says i think you know vi came to the messenger so a lot of us. So he took the initiative he came to the profits of the Law Center. And he said we are a sole ally MSN Messenger of Allah and Lim Nita odonata. Our ob teach me a to award
a dua wherein I am seeking a loss protection that's what our word is. Explain it. So Teach me at our booth at our to do our by which I can seek a loss protection
on McAfee so he held my hand
and he said Allahumma now this is what I wanted to say. This
is one of the when I copied the heavy first it was the cat the T bone when I went to the original certificate for example for noting so if you have it in the book, The cat defeated It is my shoulder right? And it's still reasonable that was hate that typo it still makes sense. But in the tyranny v it says we can be so that's that's the really the what the heading says
that because he held my
could say, allow India to become insha Allah I seek your protection from the evil of my hearing
woman Sherry bustani. And from the evil of my sites, woman Shirley Sani, and from the evil of my tongue, when we shall we call the end from the evil of my heart, I mean surely many anti fragile and from the evil of my private part.
So, here salatu salam gave him a tour through which he is seeking a loss protection from all of these things.
So, the first thing inshallah we want to focus on is this part, a part of a downward or asking a loss protection,
we spoke about, in general, last heading, another headings, right, we spoke about, in general, now part of do
is seeking a loss protection.
Because into AI, you can do two things, you can ask Allah for things,
or as the last panel data to do what was the other part you can ask Allah for things, or
protect you. So bring things to me or keep things away from? These are this is what is right? Both of them you are requesting from our last panel data, but they are opposites. You're saying Allah give me bring it close to me. And the other one, you're saying? Yeah, Allah take it away from me, keep it away from so to outward, and outward are fallible, fallible humans, you're seeking protection. Right?
This is the key.
So this is someone This is cars blocking. In the lot in parking lots, it's v KVY 846. v. k.
So it's the Van bkv why 846 of you, the owner of this man, please in sha Allah will remove it promptly.
So I thought that he was bringing me this too, because I was sweating. I was like, I'm not sweating. So I'm
like, Yeah, like, Why Why am I having a napkin here? So.
So it was all about him is seeking a loss protection. So this is an essential part of
right. And you think about it logically, in the dunya itself, even when you ever when you want to accomplish something in this dunya, you have a project. In order for this project to be successful, you need two things. You need what you're seeking, right? To be in place, right? The finances, the money, the health, whatever it is, you needed to be in place you needed to be close to you. And you also need protections from obstacles, or any someone else I already said anyone or anything that can come and stop you from doing what you're doing. So you need to be at least two things, to have success in anything worldly or religious, you need first of all the things that will help you
succeed, and to be protected from the things that will take the success away from you. Right. That's That's how it is. That's how it works. You know, let's take any example. you're collecting money you're trying you know, to invest this money, you need a loss of panela data to help you invest this money wisely. And you need a loss protection or your own actual protection, you need to be vigilant, you need to spread that protection so that nobody comes and takes this money away from you. So both of these things. So first, it's an essential part of and you will find it prevalent in the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah, He will send them where you're not only saying your ally want
but also Allah protects me, protect me from this, take this thing away from me take this harmful thing away.
The other thing also, when we want to say about Tao is that it also relates to something that is very human.
Because all of us are afraid of something. We fear something, or another. And that's an essential part of our life. In we fear, things that we know and things that we do not know we think we fear things that are physical and things that are non physical, even when we are happiest when we have this thing that we want. At the same time, we're afraid that it's going to be taken away from us. So we're always afraid. And even when we tried to secure ourselves right, in a fortress in a building, we have guards, right? armored cars, whatever it is, right? So this only takes part of part of the problem solves only part of the problem because it's only What does what saves you from or saves me
from physical danger and harm. But there is non physical danger and harm death.
I'm talking just as humans, I'm not even talking as Muslims, right? There is death. So you think about it, this is not something that is under your control, unexpected accidents. And if you believe in the supernatural and supernatural powers, they can come and attack you. Again, I'm just speaking not as a Muslim, just as human, these things can come and attack you. And you need some sort of supernatural protection, to be able to push away harm, even physical harm, supernatural harm and physical harm.
So us as humans, we're always looking, we're always afraid, and we're always looking for protection.
And then we devise as humans again, we devise sort of different mechanisms for us to deal with this, or to bring this protection. You look at different religions and different faiths and practices. And some people have offerings. Some people you know, go through some dances to protect themselves from evil Some people put on amulets, you know, that's how we die, we've, and you find some Muslims doing that as well. You go to someone, and you say, you know, I'm afraid of this, I'm afraid of envy, I'm afraid of magic, I'm afraid somebody's gonna hurt me. He takes the paper, he writes things in it, things that are incomprehensible, right? Maybe some of it is comprehensible, but a lot of it is
incomprehensible. And you have these numbers and whatever, right, and then folds it and he's aware of this all the time. And as long as you're wearing it, nothing bad will happen to you. So this is coming from what coming from fear. We're afraid of things that can actually harm us. And so when the prophets of Allah to send them on what a loss of Hannah what Allah tell us seek a loss protection, Allah is responding to this need that we have, because we need to be protected and we need a protector and we need a refuge. So las panatela is saying nothing and protective, all the things that we talked about. And for Muslims, we have to emphasize these are weed right there are, you
know, contrary to the sin of the prophets of loneliness, and on and contrary to Islam in general, you can't believe that there is a stone that you can carry with you, or a paper whatever is written on it that you can carry, and this thing itself can protect you. The only protector is Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is what the prophet sallallahu wasallam is teaching. This is what the Quran is teaching, when you need protection, all of these all of us need protection, why should you seek it from a loss of data. So this is where this protection comes from. So when you're saying pull out the available federal, allow the bill of business, you're bringing into your own self, the
awareness that Allah is my protector, nothing else, a lot can take care of my fears, nothing else rely on our last panel of data, then you don't have to fear anything. Right. And we spoke about fearing a loss of panel data and what that does in Sharla, so we're not gonna repeat it.
Also, you know, seeking refuge and especially from these things, when you think about it,
the Prophet sallallaahu Selim said, seek Allah's refuge from the evil of your tongue, the evil of your eye, the evil of your ear, the evil of your evil, like, these things that you use all the time.
As they bring benefit to you, they can bring what
a lot of harm, a lot of evil, these are the things that you use all the time.
Right. These are things that you use all the time, just to understand the world around you just to talk to other human beings, you know, to bring benefit to you also but you use all the time. And when you say to yourself something that I use all the time can bring me so much harm. It tells us also It teaches us also that we are all one week.
Really and helpless, before Allah subhana wa Tada. That is when you are coming to the gala and you prayed. When you memorize something from the Quran, when you want to hide a new food, we get to feel what
I am this all this right? I'm missing that. I'm great.
What you you know, Miss on what I miss at that moment is that this has happened because of me.
Or because of Allah subhanaw taala
because of Allah subhana wa
where Allah subhanho wa Taala to leave you to yourself and to take away his support from you and leave you to yourself.
I and you will not be able to do any of these things. Come to the mystery. Listen to something useful, understand it, have the willingness to actually apply it have the willingness to come again and listen to something more useful, you will have none of these desires. So when you begin to think to yourself that you are all of all this and all that I you know, I am pious, I am an observant Muslim, I am knowledgeable I am this and that remember that in seeking Allah's refuge from
All of these things from the,
from your own self, from your own bad qualities, from misunderstandings, all of these things that we talked about from the evil of your heart itself, it tells you that you are very weak and very vulnerable. And that you need a loss, protection and security all the time.
And that whatever you are at this moment is by the will of Allah subhana wa tada and his help, it's not because of your own ability. So the mark of the true slave of Allah subhana wa Tada, as they say, is that he stopped seeing himself
and sees a loss of Hannah with Allah. And whatever he does, I came here to pray.
You know, I finished one chapter in a particular book, I finished an entire book, I read an entire book of Heidi,
and mark of a true slave of Allah subhana wa Taala is that he does not he does not see himself, meaning admirer themselves, I don't see myself anymore. All I see is that a lot helped me do it. Or LLC is that they'll feel from Allah subhanho wa Taala. All that I see is the success that Allah had helped me with. And he has the pantalon have given it to someone else. And if Allah wishes, we can change places. And I could be this other person who's lost and clueless and confused, if not for Allah subhana wa Tada. So you start, you stop seeing yourself that your eye is not focused on yourself, but it's focused on the last panel with that. And you see that whatever good happens to
you happens because of Allah, whatever harm you're protected from, it's because of a loss of panel data. And then whatever bad things you do, you do them because of yourself. So this is also one important thing that I would teach is no arrogance, no pride, but complete humility, you surrender of yourself in completely before Allah subhana wa Tada.
The next thing that we can learn from this hadith in sha Allah.
Now this man, this is the hobby comes to the prophets of the law. He was 11. He says, teaching.
What did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam do?
held his hand? Why did he hold his hand?
Why do you think he held his hand?
Yeah, there's more attention. There's more attention. And what I really want to emphasize here is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and if you like, compile all of the ad, you'll find that the prophets have already said them is the best teacher.
He's not only, of course, supposed to be a messenger, in a sense that I'm just delivering information.
No, but would this delivery of information because to be a teacher is not just delivering information, right?
It's not like, you know, standing in front of you, I'm just reading, right? I'm just gonna read what's here, close the book, I'm done. I've done my job. I delivered the message, right? That's not what really the messenger is supposed to do. But the messenger is also a teacher. And what a teacher does is not only as we, as I said, relay information, but if you think of, you know, one of your favorite teachers, why would they want to be your favorite teachers? If you had? Maybe you didn't have any favorite teacher? Hopefully that, but why would they be one of your favorite teachers?
The way that they delivered right? So this is one answer.
Caring, right, they cared about you, and about your learning, and what you got from that class.
right, they respected you by they paid attention to you, they respected you, they respected your questions, they answered your questions. So there is this element of care element of communication more than the material itself. And I used to imagine also that one of the one of the marks of a good teacher is that they made you because of their behavior, love the material itself. Right? There's not only that you like like them, but also you like what they were teaching, whatever it is science, math, English, whatever it is, but you also started to like, the things that they were teaching because of that. So the profits of a lot of them was the best teacher, he held his hand this is a
strategy when you are trying to
transfer information, why did he hold his hand? First of all, inshallah we can, we can, you know, try to, you know, extract the heck out of this. This is a Sahabi that is coming, sensing your prophet Teach me.
So he has an interest in learning. So this is one. The second thing is that he's telling the Prophet sallallahu Sallam I want to outward for my protection. So maybe this man is
Did a little bit
it's possible that he's worried a little bit about himself, about his email and about his future, right. So that's why you're asking for two hours, give me a two hour that I can protect myself using. So there is enough element of worry. So when you hold someone's hand, first of all, you honor that request. If you show love, and you honor that request, you came because he wanted to learn, you hold his hand. So you show him love. As you said, you show him respect, you honor Him, because He came seeking knowledge.
And one of the Sahaba, you know, when he was when he received some people who wanted to learn,
and he said, Why are you here? Why did you come here? And he said, because I want to learn something. And he said, By Allah is this is this, the only reason why you come to me, because you want to learn something. And he said, By Allah, that's the only reason I'm here. And he said that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, the meaning of which is that when these seekers of knowledge come to you, honor them.
So the prophets, a lot of you sent him was honoring him by holding his hand. And all it was also comforting him by holding his hand.
Also, what it does, is that when you combine this you know, verbal instruction with that touch,
it's more likely that this person is going to remember what you're going to be talking about, for a long time, for a long time, and this is also an emphasis you want to emphasize, what do you want to say, you do that to panela, with other people, especially those who are younger with with a child, you want to really like advise them something that is deep,
that is beneficial, what are some of the things that you do? You take him on you hold him by the shoulder, right? So that he can pay attention to what you're saying, and he can remember whatever you telling him. So this is a strategy that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam employed. And if you want to be a good teacher, if you're in that field, or in general, you want to be a better teacher, very conveyor of knowledge. Look at how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to teach his companions
and why they loved him so much as a teacher. And one of the things that the Prophet Ali cinema was very successful in doing was that he transferred the love that he had for Islam to them.
to Islam did not end by the death of the Prophet sallallahu usen they became teachers. Right? So that's the ultimate love, that I love Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, it's not enough that I love Allah, I want to make you love Allah, so that when I'm gone, he will continue to love him. And it's not enough that I am a teacher of Islam. I want to make you a teacher so that when I'm gone, you will be the teacher. So that how Prophet sallallahu Sallam was wonderful, as a teacher.
the first thing that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned, quoting say, allow mania or the beginning shall be semi Allah, I seek refuge in You from the evil from the evil of my hearing.
If you pay attention, in the Quran, generally in the Quran, and in the center of the prophets of the law, you send them when both the ear and the eyes hearing and sight are mentioned, which comes first.
Not the eyes, hearing, hear, typically, typically, hearing comes first, the ears come first and eyesight comes later typically.
And one of them for sitting have said
or easy. Now. So one of them have a city and have said, it says you will find this consistent in the Quran. Because the IRS more than the eyes are connected to the heart and influences more than the eyes. So the impact of the ears compared to the eyes on the heart is greater.
And their impact the benefit that they give to the body, to the soul to the mind to your emotions are greater than the eyes.
So this is what we mentioned. He says Allah mentioned the blessings of hearing before citing the entire Quran because it's more useful than sight to the heart has more influence on the heart and is more useful religiously.
And he you know, gave an example you know, he said, What if everybody could not hear
and all the messengers of our last panel with that, especially right at a time when people could not read or write all the messages of Allah subhanaw taala came and they preach the message of Islam. How could people understand it if they could not hear
He says also and others have said also right? sight is limited to what you see around you. Or nowadays, right? You have technology and whatever, you can see something, you know, that happened instantly, you know, across, you know, 1000s of miles away, but typically, it has to be right in front of you. Right, right, right there in front of you. If it's behind you, you can't see it.
But hearing right, is three 360. wherever it happens, you can hear it, it's around you.
And they say also, just as evidence for it, he said that, you will find
that a lot of the scholars have sung a lot. Okay, some of the scholars of Islam, were actually what? blank
line. He said he would hardly find a scholar of Islam who is deaf.
Because deafness actually isn't more of an obstacle than blindness. You can be blind, even sometimes at an early age, as a young boy, could be blind. Not that blind, but still, you're able to acquire a lot of knowledge.
And even some of the Sahaba right, they became blind. But still, they were scholars of Islam, but it's not the opposite. So they're saying that that's the reason why, because it's a great.
It's a great anathema. So hearing is a greater number than sight, though both of them are great numbers. And these are the two things by me that you use to be able to understand the world around you and to communicate with the world around you. A tongue of course, but tongue is sort of a follower of whatever we see in whatever we hear.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, seek refuge from what you hear. So although hearing can bring a lot of benefit, it can also bring a lot of harm.
So what are the examples? What are the examples of the evil that can that our hearing that our ears can bring to us? What are the examples? Give us some examples?
Because I've listed a lot of them here, but you know, it's better than they come from you. So what are an example? The things are that you listen to
that are harmful?
Well, consensus is like music. Okay.
falsehood in general, so right falsehood, in general, anything that takes you away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Anything that Allah hates, in general, that's evil, that's sure.
And then you can you know, elucidate, then you can enumerate different examples, but anything that takes you away from Allah subhana wa,
is something that is evil. So what are examples that we can have you see said music, you know, as something that could distract you and take you away from Allah soprano with that. What else there's gossip
backbiting, right backbiting level idle talk.
Get it blind. So listening to lying,
you know, listening to any lies, listening to rumors, unsubstantiated
singing, right, yeah, visual music. So, you know, listening to gossip, listening to rumors, listening to religious knowledge that is not coming from the right sources. Right? We can call them students, scholars, not really scholars. But those who you know, confuse you when you listen to them. They're not taken from the Quran, and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But the more that you listen to them, the more that you confuse you about what's right and what is wrong. So listening to them, right, is evil because it shakes your ego.
It shakes your belief, and Subhanallah nowadays, you know, we use Pamela where we have good intentions, but good intentions are not enough. There are satellite there is YouTube, there are online sources, and you go there and as long as a person looks, quote unquote, Islamic speaking about a lot about his prophet sallallahu Sallam we say, well, let's give it a try. Let me listen.
Not paying attention that that could be part of the evil that have you bring it to yourself, especially when you can't distinguish between right and wrong. Is he what he's saying? Like, what he's saying about these ahaadeeth what he's saying about this one candidate can verify it for myself or not. So the setup, right, literally predecessors were very careful about who they took as a teacher. We didn't just take anybody.
If the person is qualified, then they take from him If not, they wait until they are sure about who he is and his qualifications, but it shouldn't be the same thing. And we should it should be the same thing.
So listening right to in general disbelief. Listening to listening to hypocrisy, listening to any Chapin member when we talk about the Phaeton in general
Listening to any super to any doubt anything that can shake your belief is an evil that you want to avoid.
Also listening to any shadow,
what is the shadow?
desire, right? Anything that is gonna, you know, inflame, bring up your desire,
whether it is some kind of life could be music, the lyrics or just music itself, some form of speech, some, some have taught things on TV, things online, whatever it is, right? That's gonna, you know, increase your desire and flame your desire. And of course, you know, if you don't have out to accept the Haram, then that's definitely evil. Right?
If you're listening to, we've talked about backbiting. Now, backbiting becomes a more egregious sin, when it's about someone who is pious and religious, when it's about the scholars of Islam.
You know, we have to, you know, reserve more of our respect to those who, you know, preaching Islam and teaching us Islam, in the past, and in the present.
But when you lend your ear right, to attacks against them, especially when these attacks, you know, just highlight
minor mistakes, or maybe some mistakes with the panel, or sometimes even actually repented from them, but they keep coming up, or they keep coming up.
So when you actually focus on it so much,
and eventually end up discrediting this person and this person in this room until there's hardly anyone that you can take knowledge from that's also an evil, especially for a person who, who's
an average Muslim, now reduces who says, what, you know, what, when I go and listen, you know, to these, you know, the more of these who are observant religiously, all that I hear, is them attacking each other.
Why should I listen to them? Better, I do do something else. So we actually are turning people away from Islam, when that's the only thing that we're talking about when just highlighting mistakes. Yeah, you know, there's a, there's a mistake, talk about it, but within proportion, within limits, within reason. And consider also the good things that this person is doing, if he's doing good things, and what other other might have said about it, right, so so we're not fishing for mistakes. So this is also something that you know, have this is an evil that a person can bring into their lives can bring into their heart. And as we said, this this year is really connected to the heart.
This is the sense the first sense of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had talked about. So it's connected to the heart. And when you let it inside, it goes inside, and it keeps working inside your heart. And that's what the heart now is working on. It's now working up with about something else, he's not worried about something else. Now it's worried about this thing that I heard from so on. So this Halloween thing that I got from some so this gossip, that rumor, that super this doubt, this particular desire that I should pay attention to, that's what the heart is talking about. That's what the heart is involved in. So you want first of all to close this door. This is a portal This is
a connection between the outside world and the heart you want to close it to the heart. And only Allah was huddled in
because by extension or by implication when you're asking Allah subhana wa tada your love protect me from the evil mind. Ear the evil of hearing by implication you're asking Allah Subhana Allah to give you what
the opposite good things because you can just be not listening to anything
you can you can be just not seeing anything. So if you're saying Allah take away all of this Hold on, you're saying by implication what Yella put in what you love instead. beneficial things useful things but yeah, I love that instead. So one of the things in sha Allah and this is you know, benefits of so one of the scholars is that what are you saying? Yeah, Allah give me an E Allah protects me. It's not enough to say that verbally.
Meaning if you're so free are saying here he Allah protect me from the evil of my hearing. It's not enough for you to actually say that verbally. But you need to follow this up with actions that protect you from the evil or
whatever you hear.
So it's not as he says like, because it becomes a contradiction, right? Meaning
he Allah protect me from killing this person and you're killing them at the same time. Right?
That doesn't make sense. So you have to you know, follow this up with IE Allah protect me from this
with tongue, right, that's what you're saying. And then follow this with action. So you stay away from it.
So this is what we need.
To do so you see a lot protecting your eye from all this evil, but how is he gonna protect you from all this evil? What are you not taking the initiative, we're not actually doing something and to protect you from this evil you need to put something in its place. So you have to listen to what you have to listen to the Koran, you have to read the Koran, you have to listen to us for lectures, you have to listen to anything useful, because you always need a substitute. Right. And that is again one of the benefits of the insights that those the scholars of Islam have said they said that if you notice in the Quran, and if you notice in the sin of the prophets of Allah, he was Salah is that
when they tell you not to do something they offer you
the alternative, they offer you the substitute,
they offer you the substitute, how to find them a Julio cotton universally declared etc. Find them
true because humanity human beings have been created to do not not to do.
So if I tell you don't do this, okay, fine. But I still have to do something. Because they say you've been created to do, right?
Like, if I tell you, for instance,
like I'm going to tell him, don't play with your phone.
Okay, fine, I won't play with it from but give me something else to do. So you have to, you know, substituted with something else.
So you have to offer a substitute. But if you say Don't play with your phone, okay, put it down, I'll put it down. And then what, there's nothing to do.
So I'm gonna go back to it,
I have to go back to it. Because that's that's that you have to offer the substitute. So that's also part of the insight that Islam teaches you if you also want to be a better teacher, don't just tell your kids don't.
Okay, then what? offer something, don't do this, but read this, don't do this, but go out and do this, right? always offer the alternative, then leaving whatever this thing that you don't want them to do, it becomes easy, but if you just say don't do it, they're not gonna not gonna listen. Okay, so you need that substitute. So so panela there is a there are a lot of things that are could be considered the evil of whatever we hear, you know, not recognizing the truth when we hear it, not liking the truth when we hear it, hearing the truth, but in the wrong way. That's also a possibility. Like somebody comes in yells at you telling what he's telling you is right, but he's
yelling at you.
You may not follow it. So listening or hearing the truth in the wrong way.
Listening or hearing the truth and wrong time.
When sometimes you're not ready for a while, your level of EMA and your level of knowledge you're not there yet. So also for Allah subhana wa Taala to give me what you're ready to digest. What are you ready to apply? All of this right, Miss hearing the truth and not actually understanding that all of this could be part of the evil mind may not be a limit to all of the evil right that there are that the IRS can bring into our hearts but the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said when you seek Allah's refuge from it, Allah subhanaw taala will protect you from all of it, from all of it.
The next thing that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I mean, shall we?
What did he say? did have anyone memorize it?
So from the evil, my sight
and that's the second most important sense that we have the evil of oversight. Right? And
hearing and like with our ears, singing loss, protection from the evil of our eyes, meaning that seeking a loss, protection from everything that Allah hates,
and that we may see, and again bring into our hearts into our minds. So anything that Allah subhanho wa Taala hates, and one of the is in the Quran gives us also an example of what Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah says,
Allah subhana wa Taala knows
the reception of the eyes and what the chest conceals.
So what is the deception of the eye and he allow you
to lie on the deception of the meaning for instance, examples that you would give
to people are looking at the same person
you can tell what their intention is but one of them
you know likes this person the other one the other person has intended evil for that person. Who knows
what I you know what this look hides
That is part of the deception of the eyes that when you're looking at me when I'm looking at you, I may not be able to interpret your your gaze. I don't know what the tides behind
a loss of habitat. That's why Allah says Allah, Allah and he knows what your eyes really intent. Whenever you look, remember we talked about hazard and envy in the hookah does the same thing. Allah knows when you're looking at someone like that, and this is your intention, and this is what you want to do or not. And a lot knows what is inside your chest. They give also another example.
Another example of what at what piano there are deception guys is that you know, you're in a gathering right? And there is something caught on over there not you're not supposed to look at it, there's a woman or whatever, you're in a group. So it says part of that deception is what when people are looking at you and people are watching you and not looking
but when they look the other way, you know, you sneak a look. That's the deception of the eye. Why is it deceptive because in front of those people, they're pretending to be what
all innocent and nice and I'm good I'm pious and everything you know, I'm keeping it you know, you're on the straight path.
But when they fail to notice you you sneak them
out for instance you're looking for the last panel data knows you know what you have really deep inside whether this is an innocent look, or it's something else. So lots of panel data here is telling you and there's embodied in this is what is a threat? Right? There lies in is informing us but there's also a threat to Allah knows what is behind this look that you're having a lot of nose what is inside your chest.
So what are the things in order examples, you know, of things that you can look at that Allah subhana wa Taala hates?
You know, let's, let's take few examples.
Yeah, the opposite the unlawful, you know, look, engage with someone that you're not supposed to look at. Right? You're not supposed anything that is outside marriage.
I think like, when I was thinking about it, I was like, the best definition of it. Anything that is outside a lawful marriage, that you look at this person, and you have a desire for them? No, you're supposed not to look. So this is one thing that Allah Subhana Allah hates. And inshallah we'll have more to say about that, when we maybe insha Allah, but they say that inshallah another salmon minsi, Javi, please, just looking
that illicit look, is one hour from the arrows of a police of the shape. Like, if you imagine the shape one having this quiver with him, and it's like, has a lot of arrows and these arrows are poison, it says, if he can get you to take that look,
he would add, almost, you know, had hit your heart with a poisoned arrow. Because that look, especially when you keep looking and you look a second time or the third time, that image of that other individual that you're not supposed to look at, goes from the outside,
to the inside,
it's like a camera right to transfer the image, then it gets transferred.
From there from the outside to the inside. And it doesn't matter, you may not, you know, see them for the next day or two or week, two days a week. But still, how long someone had had experienced with it, you would still think about them. And the image stays inside your heart and you can really get rid of it. Until unless a loss of data helps you. And the more that you keep looking, the more that this image takes hold
of your heart. And that's the only thing that you can think of.
So that the easiest thing to do is not to look
and stay away from that image
that exists outside locker marriage. So that's an example.
Another example is reading right in the, in the
in the books of disbelief books or books of hypocrisy reading in a book something that is online. Because again, just like listening to it that's transferring all that information to your heart, and it can shake and damage your belief. It's different. We're not saying and I you know, I'm sometimes you know, careful here that I'm afraid that when you hear this, someone could come and object and you say, you know, you're asking us to be closed minded and not read anything, and not listen to anything and be completely ignorant and that's not really what we're saying. Is it not saying that
saying, I'm going to tell you whatever you want. But first be educated about it.
Take it gradually be aware and have enough you know, knowledge, and then go ahead and read whatever you want. So the great scholars of Islam like if you tell me about Kamala, right? If they read all of these books, read all the books of the philosophers and Xena and this and this and this and this and this, right? They read all of this.
But why when did they read all of this when they were filled with the knowledge of Islam, knowledge of the Quran and the book and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Now when you're ready, you can go ahead and read not that when you're poor, have all of this knowledge and you say, I want to read all of these things. It will confuse you. And you'll have all of these depths inside and you will not know how to escape them.
It'll be very difficult to escape them. So take the gradual path of knowledge, learn your religion, learn the Quran, learn the sin of the prophets, a lot of you send them properly and then afterwards, read whatever you want.
So not saying be closed minded, be what be gradual in your learning, focused on your learning with a purpose. Right? Not random, not chaotic, I'll read whatever comes my way. That's not right.
So anything wrong, really, that will bring a sugar into your heart, anything that will bring a shower into your heart, a desire into your heart. So we spoke here about looking at someone right from the opposite sex right outside of marriage, we talked about that. But also if you remember, we talked also before about this wandering eye
that looks at the dounia and does not restrain itself. Do remember what we said what was the
the harm of this
fight another era dounia just looking
just looking at this dunia left and right. The glamour and the beauty of this dunya the temptations of this dunya right Remember what we said
would be the harmful or the harm all of that
will just attach it to
right. So the only thing again if we if we forgot the only thing that I am, you know look at
the latest cars. The nicest the most expensive cars, the biggest houses, the latest brands, you know, designer dress designer bag, designer this and that's the only thing I'm looking at and looking at I'm looking at this all the time all the time.
What is my heart thinking? What is it occupied with?
Yeah, what is it one? All these things. That's the thing that at once it's not you come to it and you tell it go to the masjid. It has no space in it to go to the mystery. You can't do it and say look at last panel that has no space to look at the last one. We're not saying that it is absolutely empty of Allah's love. We're not saying that. But we're saying that there is not a lot of space in it for the love of Allah subhanaw taala because what it competes with it is the love of the dunya How did the love of the dunya settle there
IRS also through the US.
I go and I'm looking at all these beautiful, glamorous, you know, eye catching things, it's hard for me not to think about it. It's not that hard for me not to work for it. It's hard not hard for me not for that not to be the most important thing in my life. So that's why restraining your gaze becomes important.
And we said that I would deny them autonomy as what I mean home, when I was telling this prophet sallallahu Sallam in the Koran do not extend your eye towards all the beauty of the slides that we had given to other couples and to other people and you know, groups and communities is don't extend your eye there. Because what the last panel had given you is better so now able for you to have a place in your heart for our last panel talent for Islam, you have to decrease the space for the dunya and that's one of the evils of the I can bring
one of the evil guys of course, is you know,
any any any signal that we do with our eyes to indicate for instances you know, like when I'm I want to say something and then I wink meaning that it's not true.
Right? That's an evil. I don't know if somebody does, I don't know maybe a cultural you don't do it. I have no idea but some people do it right. You're talking you're saying something in the new wing.
Working meaning that that's not true. I'm just lying to him but bring me bring me a new it's not. I don't mean that's an evil that you're using your eye for evil. Or you're rolling your eyes at someone. Right? Or your eyebrows. You know you making
Have someone by doing this maybe your parents or I don't know what you're making fun of them
as the other person knows that you're making fun of them through your eyes that's also what are the evil of the eye you're using your eye in something that Allah Subhana Allah hates You're mocking someone you know you're putting them down. So this is all part of the evil that the AI is used for.
And so he said also by implication, right? When you're asking a lot of panel data to save you from this evil, you're asking a lot to put all the beneficial things in it. You need also that alternative you need that substitute and what is that substitute is found and reading the Quran it's found in reading the sooner you found in every anything useful, that reads the closer to Allah subhana wa tada contemplating the universe around you.
Right, just discovering the beauty for Allah subhanho wa Taala has created the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom, you know, observing humanity in general learning about humanity in general. All of this is very useful, and teaches you a lot about what Allah subhanaw taala had revealed in the Quran in real time connections between them. So this is using your eye in thin ways at a loss of power data loss, not in ways that our last panel data hates brings you closer to a lunch that takes you far away from it gives you a snack rather than say yet and mousy.
The third thing was my tongue,
and the prophets of the law he was setting them had said
that the thing
that throws people in Hellfire
among you know, all of what we have, the thing that really throws people in Hellfire is their tongue.
they acquire most sense humanity acquires most sense through their tongue through what they say. So what they repeat, because it's easy to talk, and they will have inshallah a future Hadith we'll be talking about the connection between the tongue and the heart and the connection between the heart and the tongue.
when we say, yeah, Allah protect us from the evil of our tongue, saying anything through our tongue that you hate,
lying, gossip, spreading rumors, right? And maybe included in that sub panel, because now we don't, I have to actually have to verbally share these things, you know, you receive something through your phone
forward, while you send it to some other people. Well, and you don't think at that moment? Is this something Hello? Or Hello?
Is this 100% hana? Or does it have some harm in it? Whatever, you upload it through WhatsApp, or share through Facebook or through whatever social media in general, when you hit a light, and other people know that you like this thing?
Is it actually 100% helado are you sharing part of the heart on that other person is seeing and watching.
And when you do that, it may not have affected you, but it could affect them in ways that you may not anticipate.
So when you share this head on with them, especially, especially if it's harmful, when it's religious knowledge, right, that has not been verified.
Like, on this particular blessing, the night of Juma This is an incredible two hour that you can see here, and you don't see a source and you don't know what the source is. And you say, Well, it looks nice, share it with everybody. Right? So people share it. And you probably have received this, or on this particular blessed night. And on this night the prophet SAW sent him used to do this. There is no source, no source to it. It's not verified, not confirmed in any way but you share it. And so Pamela, when you share it, you may carry the sin of those who receive it and believe it to be true and apply it thinking that this is a sin.
So if you don't verify, see what the prophets of the law you sent him said man had the money behind Ethan
Gary B. It says whoever released Hadith from me and this Hadith, it is considered to be a lie. He is one of the liars.
That is when you convey this Hadith, this hadith is considered to be a lie. And you share it you will be considered as what
one of the liars
so we can do this verbally. I heard this hadith I heard this information. It's not verified. And you can share it share it with other people or you can do it and do it through technology. Whatever you do it who responsible for it. So part of the sin of the tongue is to relate what we are not aware of or too late to really gossip
You know, unsubstantiated information, transferring disbelief cofrin Allah subhanho wa Taala sharing that with others with hypocrisy, hypocrisy in general is related to the tongue.
If it had the right, you lie, when you speak, you make a promise and you intend in your heart, I'm going to break this promise. You say something outwardly and it's not what is inside your heart, or we I like you and you're the best person that ubu he preys on someone. That's not what's inside your heart. That's a form of hypocrisy. Also, that's one of the evil that the tongue can bring.
exaggeration, sometimes could be part of the evil,
exaggerating your status exaggerating your feelings, you know, can become an invalid, right? The exaggeration could be lying sometimes. So these exaggerations, right? is a form of hypocrisy, like one of the scholars have said,
which is nice to know what it said, if you're asking someone, how are you doing? How's your family? How's your business? How's your life? And in your heart, you don't care anything about any of these things? That's a form of hypocrisy.
Tough, right? Because that's what it is. How are you? How's the family? How's the children? That's just you know, casual time, you don't really care, right? But he's saying that if you're asking all of these things mean it like, like care for this person when you ask him? In other words, if you're just asking, and you don't mean any of it, he says, because that's what hypocrisy is. discrepancy. We talked about this before discrepancy between the outside and the inside. So outside, it seems like you would
care on the inside as well.
Come on, just say Alhamdulillah. So I can leave. Right? That's what you want. So he says that's also a form of hypocrisy.
Yeah, Ron, so hey, this is uh, you know, but he says, Danny, try your best and shout out to Mina, and Charlotte to Minnesota, you say How are you doing, like care for this person? How are you doing so it comes from the heart, right. So this is part of the sins of the tongue and there's any Subhanallah so many of them and we'll have in shall another time, we'll be able to come back to the tongue and talk about it again. But again, it's so easy to move. This song is so easy to move. And because of that, it is so easy to pile up so many sins, and the prophets a lot he would send them said a
a human being may say something that he pays no attention to. And then we may throw him in hellfire. Sorry, niharika the distance of 70 years. And a person may say something, and he does not pay much attention to it, and it may put him in heaven.
So see how much and how important your tongue is. So if you know that this is what it can do, and if you know that everything that you're saying is being written down by the two angels that Allah subhanho wa Taala had made them your companions all the time, you will be careful because you want to say to yourself, I want I want them to write the best and not the worst.
And again, what are the good things that will be the substitute
that will be the substitute when you leave all of this How long? It'd be again, reading the Quran, to be engaged in the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala as much as you can do as God is different and all of this and good conversations good conversation with people around you constructive useful, that will bring benefit to you and benefit benefit to them.
And the evil of my heart,
woman Shall we can be.
my heart and your heart can be inclined towards what Allah subhana wa tada loves, can have this love in it.
Or it can have the opposite and be inclined towards what Allah subhana wa Taala hates, and have that love for it. have love for instance for some
wrong beliefs. have love in it. For some desires that are lots of panel data hates for how long
it may not have a lot of space in it for the last panel a data loves but it wants to play gets bored very quickly when it's worships a loss of Hannah what
gets dissatisfied with what Allah subhana wa Taala had given it. Once more of this dunya does not care about Allah as worship has instead of love in it for the believers has hatred in it and envy and animosity towards the believers. All of these things
are the evil of the heart.
Something that Allah subhanho wa Taala hates so in
Seeing a loss protection from all of this, you are admitting something, you're admitting that my heart can have evil in it.
And I need a loss of power tality cleanse and take this evil away.
So if I'm attracted to something Allah hates, in terms of beliefs, and that could happen.
That can happen. Other religious communities, other faith communities, right that love. Let's forget about that. At the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there were people who died for the sake of their idols of snap, right?
in the province, almost seven came to them and they believe in this, they would not leave it, we're not going to leave these items, they died for its sake. So they had love in their heart for something that Allah subhanaw taala hated so much, and the heart can have that. And unless Allah subhanaw taala helps you, you won't be able to escape that love.
So loving something that Allah hates in terms of beliefs or something that Allah hates in terms of actions.
You know, a desire that Allah subhana wa tada hates so much, the dounia loving the dunya so much that you can put it before our last panel data and what Allah loves. All of this is part of that evil. So that cleanse requires that a loss of panatela rescues you from the shape and
rescues you from your own self from your own ignorance from your own transgression and learn. And to put instead the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the love or the heart that loves Allah subhanho wa Taala the heart that actually is protected from all of this evil. Once it really has the love of Allah inside it, it will never seek any other love to compete with a lost love. Because it knows that now I have found
my goal, my objective, the thing that I've been seeking all this time.
And we talked before and remember that we talked before about how every single heart is seeking the ultimate love.
Remember that we talked about it before, that every single heart in everything that you're seeking in this dunya you love this person, you love this worldly possession you love your children, this love that you're seeking, you're ultimately all of this is leading you to the ultimate love that will never leave you and you will never leave. And that love is
what lots of data that's the ultimate love that you're seeking. And the heart that is really protected from its own evil is close to a loss of power. It's Alan understands the love of Allah subhanaw taala to be the ultimate end Supreme.
So here our focus in sha Allah is about is on this part,
woman shutter it can be
because you need a loss of panel data to help you on this journey to a loss of panel data and saving you from the evil that exists on the inside the evil envy and we talked about it the evil of arrogance and we talked about that the evil of
greed and we talked about that
the evil of loving something that Allah subhanaw taala doesn't love
your ultimate goal reason and the ultimate goal should be
and that's a lofty position is for your your love, what you love and what Allah subhanho wa Taala loves for them to unite until they become one
it's not easy to reach that level reach that stage. But that What do you love and what Allah subhana wa tada loves. Now at this moment, I love things that a lot is in love.
I love things that Allah hates Allah loves things that I hate.
What we ultimately want to happen is that these things come closer and closer together until I love what Allah loves and I hate with a light
that is a love that has surrendered to Allah subhana wa tada and again, had ceased seeing itself all that it sees is a loss of pan over to Anna and what Allah wants from it, not what it wants from Allah, the loved ones from
that's, that's the ultimate, that's the best one. And the last part inshallah is seeking refuge from the private parts.
That shower, that intense desire, especially when you don't have that alternative available.
Especially when it's not there. And that intense desire to panel like can force can push even some of the best pious of people to commit a hold on that they could not have thought that they would commit because their desire, first of all was so strong, and they were allowed themselves. You know, especially in the beginning they compromised and they allowed themselves
to listen to something to look at something to tell
Something that Allah subhanho wa Taala forbade, because it doesn't begin with Zina immediately with fornication or adultery immediately, you don't go from a person who is in the midst of 24, seven, into a person who commits a sin. Now you don't move like that. You move gradually. That's why this comes at the end, Dr. This comes way at the end, because it begins with what you listen to what you look at, what you touch what your heart wishes for, and it ends with that desire.
So it can be so intense, it could destroy your email. That's why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, and from the shutter, the evil of my private party speaker they do can do that it can destroy us, when there's no other alternative, or sometimes the halala alternative is there, it's available. But that temptation is so strong, and it's everywhere, that it also pushes you to commit the harm. And as I said before, the temptations were strong at the time of the Prophet sallallahu. He was setting them with their great Eman. They're even stronger today with our weak a man because they are all around us.
They're all around us. You can't escape them. You can't escape them. So over there you can as they set out whether you can go and enter your home and lock your door and protect yourself from fitness. Nowadays, you're inside your house and the fitness is right inside your home.
So this is why we also need to repeat this often, inshallah and so, sha Allah our project for next week is twofold. First of all, is what as as bad been our habit. memorize it. Yeah. So memorize the short term there be some longer dos to come. So inshallah memorize this and
since you have the time, so memorize that.
And the second thing is shallow that you want to do is what the second thing that you want to do.
inshallah, inshallah. inshallah, I'll do it to you, it's this hadith that we have repeated, and I can shall write it down for you. But what we want to do first of all is memorize this. And the second of all, is what?
monitor practice. Practice is not just in saying, Now stop monitoring, monitor your ears, and what is listening to your eyes, whether it's seeing what they're watching, right, you're telling what is it saying? Your heart What is it thinking about? And are you staying away from the Koran or not? And also the private part is staying away from the Haram or not, and do that every day. And see inshallah you know, how you progress because this is what we want to do. We want to progress beyond the lesser that we come closer and closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala it's not only in terms of knowledge, but knowledge and application. So again, I'll read this
and it will be available in Shell after we adjourn
along India over the weekend, and shall we summary women, shall we but sorry, woman shall release any woman Shall we shall be women sharing money. So this is the doula and it's available if you have the book and if not, just talk to me and Shawn law alone make it available in Charlotte to you. But you can love satanic law behind the shadow none of stuff we will cover today.
