Explanation of the 39th hadith in the Heart Therapy Series:
The Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam said: (The one who hears the call to prayer on Friday and doesnt come to it, then hears it and doesnt come to it, then hears it and doesnt come to it, Allah then will put a seal on his heart and make his heart the heart of a hypocrite.)
Reported by al-Bayhaqi in Shuab al-Iman (2745) Al-Albani (Sahih al-Targhib 735) and Abdul Qadir al-Arnaut judged it to be hasan.
Sooner with hamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While he was happy you are seldom.
inshallah, before we start, I just wanted to say that for next week
there is going to be the conference, the keynote conference just right next door and IMO and I've got to know that they have this free Friday from seven to 10
I don't know what's in it, but you don't need to register you could just go there. So it shows just to help them you know to help promote the event and also so that we don't compete with them. So next week, we're going to have a hell of a shallow imagine that they're going to have something over there so we want to compete with them in Sharla. So today's had a 39 next week is supposed to be 40. So we're not going to have it next week, but the week after inshallah, okay.
So, we've started with that. So today's video
the connection between our actions
and how they influence the hearts specifically here. When Allah subhana wa tada commands something you miss it. How does it affect you?
More specifically, it's about selective demand. Friday prayer. And when you miss Friday prayer, what happens to your heart and when it repeats?
Till he reaches three times what happens to the heart.
So happy his short
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men semi Anita IO Majumdar. Philomena t Ha. sama semia. Who Fell ammirati sama sama who follow me It
called domino effect.
So he says so the Lord He sent him the one who hears then he
then he that is the
so the one who hears the NIDA Friday's
the young of Juma philomela Tina so and he did not come to it did not come to the sada
sama Samia who follow me it when he hears it, meaning the second Friday phenom yet yeah, and also he does not come to it. So Masami, alpha lumea, T, ha. And also here, that's the third time this is a third Friday, we'll see other Hadeeth right, that makes that explicit. So here's a third time and he doesn't come to it. Two things happen to him. Baba, Allahu Allah, Allah puts a seal on his heart. So there's, there's a covering on the heart. Or Jana healthvault albana when he makes his heart, the heart of a hypocrite.
The heart of a hypocrite. This is reported by a very healthy, and there are other hobbies that support it.
So first of all, this tells you
how important Salatu drum is.
And it's a lot of drama is compulsory on who? males right? adult males. Females don't have to attended they can but they don't have to attend it. So the prophets Allah sent him here is talking about males or females,
males, but obviously write any command with a loss of Hannah with data, especially when it is regular like that, and an obligation like that. And we keep missing it eventually has the same effect. Kenny, this is the trick shoe about Salatu. Juma How about a person who does not pray at all?
Right? Yeah, same or even what worse because this is you're missing five daily prayers every single day. But just once a week, every single day.
So missing an obligation that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah had made it so a regular obligation is very serious in the sight of Allah subhana wa Tada. So let's go to Friday and then we will learn the more general lessons so Friday. Why is Friday important? The prophets a lot, he said and tells that five days are you doing 100 Islam This is the aid of the Muslims. And when something is their aid, it means that there's something special about it.
What is special about as we eat, the loss of Hannah dalla had instituted has given to us in Islam is that every aid is tied to when you see in Islam is tied to the worship of Allah subhana wa tada and is tied to actually the joy that you find coming out from the worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. And when you think about it every aid, not only Muslims who have it, but also others have their own aid and celebrations and festivals. Every aid has a reason
And why are celebrating? Right?
It could be for some people and independence of something.
For other people, it could be commemoration of another thing. It could be something general, it could be something more personal, whatever it is, there's always a reason why you're celebrating that day, why that day is special to you, and everybody who's around you. That is the thing that makes you happy. Right? So it's not just the food.
Although the food makes you happier,
it's not just the gatherings that makes you happier, not just wearing nice clothes on or the break in the routine. All of these things are secondary, but what is the reason that made people select that particular day? That is supposed to be the reason why everybody is happy. And then when they do these other things, fireworks going out visiting friends and family, these are what are these are expressions of that joy,
that accompany that particular joy. So when you think about it in Islam, unlike other
ideologies, religions, and what have you, right, the reason why you're celebrating is your proximity, your being close to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So in April 1, and why you are celebrating you just had what Ramadan, the forgiveness of Ramadan and the worship of Ramadan, so you're coming out of it, thanking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and rejoicing in the opportunity that Allah has given me 30 days or so to worship Him and be close to him and I felt it and I enjoyed it. And I want to thank Allah for it. And now Allah had given me the chance to entertain myself and my family
that we had that we run in
the other aydelotte Hopkins after the season or in the midst of the season of hedge, so you're also celebrating right they've just, you know, worship a lot during the first 10 days and there is no no the day of alpha and fasting. So I've racked up all of these hasn't taken a lot given me this opportunity. So I am also taking a lot of panel data and every lead by the way has a worship in it.
In a regional circle, how do you start even further by worshiping Allah soprano that is the first thing that you do in a
it's not any other sin or even anything that is personal, right? An individual This is a worship to Allah xojo you go and bake
for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala so you begin your day your day of celebration begins with a bada and it is there because of a banner. It is important to remember in every aid, that question of why why is this a special day? It's because of the a bad because you're coming close to Allah subhana wa Tada. So Friday is similar to that. Why is it a week late? Or it is something that is different than the rest of the days. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells us in the howdy that this is the day, the day that Allah wanted people to celebrate, to commemorate to take advantage of because the blessings of Allah are in it. And he says what? Allah guided us to it, while others were
misguided. So some people chose other days to celebrate but Allah subhanaw taala meaning guided you Oh, people of Islam. Did that specially that's a Nana. That's a favor of Allah subhanho wa Taala. What has he guided you to? What is Friday happy?
Friday has one of the things that Friday has, of course, is this forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada, because there's an hour in it an hour, you know, doesn't mean like 60 minutes with 60 seconds an hour is a period of time. So there's a section in it, where a person asks a lot for anything, a lot grandson.
So there is that.
And also central in that day is sort of a drama.
Right, which is a ritual, a major ritual in Islam, and one of the defining features of Islam and Muslims that on Friday everywhere. You see them heading to the masjid. You see them praying Juma. You see them sitting down and listening to the heartbeat.
So it's a defining feature of Islam because it's a defining feature, it becomes so important. What does Allah subhanho wa Taala want from that feature? He wants the day of Friday to be a day of Rama, a day of blessings and also a day of reminders.
So why is why is this OData? Juma? Why is this the Hawaii? Is there a whole lot about why it's an art Why is it an obligation?
What's interesting is Allah subhana wa tada asks, you know, he doesn't want to burden the sisters, right? They have the opportunity to come but for the males. He makes it an obligation. You have to come sit down
and talk to anybody else.
For the period of the day, you have to listen. It's a learning session every week. You have to learn you have to be educated. It doesn't matter, right? Whether you're highly educated or not, whether you are literate or not, it does not matter. You have to come. And for a 20 minutes, 30 minutes every Friday, no matter how busy you are, so you can have the hell out of it. Some people may come some people may not. But Friday, compulsion, right, it's everybody has to come and you have to sit and you have to listen. Why do you have to listen?
Because if you don't what happens?
Right, what happens? You forget?
You forget about Allah subhana wa Dally, forget about the prophets a lot. You forget about the path that you're supposed to be walking, you forget about Halloween and how long you're swept up in the dunya. You forget about your religion.
Even as a student in school, right, when you go to school, to remember your lessons, what do you have to do? review? You have to review if you don't review you forget, Friday is this weekly review
of why and how a recommitment to a loss of Hannah what Allah says Allah is saying to the entire population. And by the way, fight is supposed to actually be different than the way that we do it today in the sense that it's not possible. You're supposed to all had to administer it.
And in Islam, you can have neighborhood questions. I where we meet together five times a day. But during the during tomorrow, we're not supposed to hold Juma in the neighborhood Miss Judy, we're supposed to hit to the Grand masjid. In the city. They could be a couple or three of them depending on the side of the city. That big Grand masjid where all the Muslims come and gather and they listen to the same hopefully, to the same football and they all meet, see each other and talk to each other. So it's a big gathering that can remind you also of the gathering that happens once in a lifetime and hedge we're all Muslims are also supposed to go there you will be seeing not face to
face, but at least in the company of millions, not millions. But at least in the city. Everybody's supposed to go there. It's an expression of unity also as well, but also what rededication recommitment to Allah subhanho wa Taala and again, if so that Juma was not that serious. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not have said if he misses Friday Prayer three times. Right? This is gonna happen to him.
Why three? Hello, Adam, why three? We can speculate we can think
because you may miss one time.
Someone is lazy, right? Because another Hadith that says behavior over no excuse. You're talking about someone. There's no excuse. So one time of course, it may be lazy,
says I don't want to go or find an excuse and it's really not an excuse. So happens once. Okay.
The next Juma comes and then he has to decide, am I going or not?
And if he doesn't go, he's approaching that danger zone
of the third one.
You miss a third one.
And it becomes what a habit to missile as a numa
sin is a habit
disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a habit.
So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam wants to stop it before he wants to inform us before it turns into a habit. That's like anything in Islam.
He said be careful because missing it once makes it easier to miss the next one. So
the first infraction the first crime, the first sin,
eases facilitates the next one.
Because if you have never missed a Juma prayer, it's difficult to stay back home. It's difficult not to respond to them. And especially when you hear it, it's difficult to do it. But if you actually go ahead and do it, and you experience what it's like not to be in a lot of drama to be at home to do something else. Now part of your heart has been corrupted a little bit.
It gotten used to disobedience, disobeying Allah subhana wa Adana. So the heart now is waiting for the next time to see which one of the two impulses will win that part of the heart that likes abandoning salata Juma or the other part that is still used to it, Which one will you make stronger so when you make
The heart that listens to Allah stronger that other heart The other part
decreases in power goes away you repent from it you ask Allah for forgiveness it goes away that corruption goes away. But when you strengthen the part that wants to disobey a last panel data corruption in the heart disease in the heart grows stronger
and that's why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says okay you've taken it once you've taken it twice you come to the third time what you get after the third time is Baba,
Baba on the her
and another heavy This is reported by Muslim which testifies to the Hadith in the chapter we're talking about they enter he enough Hunan with him with
it says either people are gonna start leaving Juma prayer,
and the habit and the practice of those who leave it. Who are the people who leave do my prayer typically,
at the time of prophets always say them who are they? One of the things that people have.
So there's a connection between that and the Prophet Allison them saying that Allah will make his heart the heart of the hypocrite, that's typically are the people who will leave so lots of Juma and not attended. So, he says either they will stop leaving Salatu Juma and missing Salatu Juma or Allah who put a seal in their hearts and they will be among the heedless, and two things will happen to them a seal on the heart and then after that they graduate and they become in the state of hoffler. Roughly, you know, heatless
does not pay attention to what Allah wants, does not care about what law wants rather in the state of law. He only cares about this dunya and what that dunya is going to give to him.
And in another Hadith is similar to Edmund Tanaka Salatu tahona, the one who leaves three Fridays. See, because this explicitly tells us or explains what is in the main headings of the chapter, mentor aka salata Juma into havanna, the one who leaves three Fridays out of neglect for Allah can be
Why does that happen, as we said, because you don't leave selective Juma unless you have this regard for what Allah has regard for
you disrespect and this honor what Allah honors, say, with me, the law honors Salatu Juma and wants you to honor it.
He mentioned that a command in the Quran Yeah, you're Latina man with a new deal. So let me do my so he makes it compulsory in the Koran just to emphasize how important that is and how significant it is for your email and for your Islam and for your heart. And he says First I will either decree law whether by a meaning first outside usually means rush run.
But he does not mean rush and run doesn't mean that run physically run but he says be so interested in it as if you are rushing towards a crush towards it without running Gourley. That's what he means there, don't run to a selective joma but take care that you attended first how illogical he was
and leave commerce and transaction
meaning that during the time of Joomla, if a person actually sells and by that transaction is valid or invalid, invalid allow me to invalid.
So he prohibited transaction during Salatu. Juma this people should pay attention to this right you can set on by when that what other than calls and then complete sends them in we can sell and buy anymore You can't do anything else you have to sit and listen. So let invalidates one of the most beloved things to people.
Right? Because the time of Friday also is what a time when people gather and you want to sell right the people around. You want to sell to them.
And maybe you're interested in buying whatever they have. The Allah is saying these things that you love so much. Once he starts the hotbar it's haram for you to sell or buy.
haram for you to sell and buy.
And he says you know that at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the remainder of that is sort of the Juma that the term of the prophets. A lot of you send them people who are waiting for a caravan to come and it's had on it, you know this and that and they were waiting and waiting and waiting for it. And the prophets are in cinemas giving an
order it was hopeless, or something else.
You know, we'll leave it to later. But that the people because they were waiting for it, they left the profits A lot of you send them white to go and receive that caravan and see what's in it.
And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says well, not in the light, halal minute
We all need a tr O Allah subhana wa tada has is better than right enjoyment of this slide and commerce and transactions because the hearts are attracted to both of these things. Now Auntie Jada.
More than naturally more than they are attracted to Allah's revelation because of their love of the dunya. And you can see that
so if you have a an event, and that event has food in it, or fun, whatever little talking about hell from has food in it has halaal entertainment in it, or has what a market bazaar in it.
More people will show up to that event rather than if it's just a lecture. Right?
Why is that that's what the hearts are attracted to more of this dunya
the triviality the superficiality of this dunya rather than what what really benefits them. So Allah subhanaw taala knows this and he says no, nothing else is allowed. sit and listen and learn your religion.
That's why you have to be so closely attentive to what the leaders say.
And that's how you get the blessings of Salatu. Juma. So some of the drama has etiquettes to it and these etiquettes means that from the beginning to get the benefit, right, to actually enjoy that aid. From the beginning, you practice the etiquettes of Salatu. Juma, bathing right and praying to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah putting on perfume for men, etc, etc, etc. From Salatu federal all the way to Salatin McClay brought you are in that a bear that you're enjoying that he that Allah has given you.
But if you leave it,
you miss all of these things. And then you disrespect. That's the problem. That is really the problem there.
That that is an indication of what that I don't care about what a lot cares about. If Allah says it is so important, and yet I decided it's not. And I have better things to do. According to my own thinking, better things to do. I have not honored what Allah has honored I've not respected what Allah has respected, I have not valued what Allah has valued. I have my own system, then I have my own values, then.
He and he they're missing, they're missing a great reward. Right? If they just consistently miss the
they're missing a great reward because one in one of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says that, and that's one of the etiquettes of coming to Japan. And the difference you know, between us and the earliest of Muslims. Again, it's not always possible, but just to see the difference. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, you know, that the one who comes early to select the Juma in the first hour in the first hour, it says if he has given a camel
sacrificed a camel or given a camel for up to a loss of Hanover data, you know how on a lot how you sacrifice
in a little further, what do you do? There's no animal sacrifice, what do you do?
So it always has something to it that you give to a loss of data. So what is Friday,
Friday have a few come early in the first hour. Whereas if you've given a camela the second hour it will be as if you've given a cow and so on and so on and so on and the angels will be there sitting and writing the names of everybody who's coming to Salatu Juma like registry. This person this person this person until the timer starts the hook but when they start the hook bond he starts the hook they close the books and they sit and listen to the hook but so your name is not written among those who attended the Sadat Why am I attended so lots of drama I attended the saga I just missed the whole why the benefit is there in addition to the saga but the benefit is they haven't listened
that's why you find that why the selected drama lose its effect is one of the reasons is us we don't respect it we don't honor it we don't come early enough that we can sometimes we don't come early enough we don't get ready for it we don't bathe we don't you know wear nice clothes we don't come to the message window don't read the Koran praise Allah subhanaw taala these you know voluntary Raka anticipating some other drama,
so we don't get the benefits of salata Jima.
So this disregard for the Sadat, this regard for that a disregard for what Allah values and what is important. If it becomes an attitude, then I will not only leave salsa Juma I'll leave everything else.
I'll leave everything else. So leaving the salon right one time, the second time, the third time. That's a habit.
That's a habit that had built inside my heart and in my mind,
and that is a habit that is likely to spread if it doesn't stop that is likely to spread to other things that Allah Subhana data loves. That will help explain or if not best for the loved one who said, Metallica, domata, telethon metadata metadata two minute earlier than Islam or Avi. It says this is Jorge, he says, ignore the one who leaves Friday, three Fridays consecutive, he has forsaken Islam and put it behind his back. eventuality of it is this,
the eventuality of it is that happening? It doesn't mean it doesn't mean the person by that had become an unbeliever. And it doesn't mean that become a Catholic because of it. You follow what I'm saying? It doesn't mean that he had become a Catholic. But you're on that path.
You're on that path. There's one of you once you receive this public,
on the heart, what happens?
It's hard right for the reminders of Allah subhanho wa Taala, his admonitions his verses to penetrate that cover and go into the heart.
See, the advantage of having a clean living heart?
a pure heart? Is what is that once you hear what Allah says? you respond to it.
The heart moves because of it. Once you hear that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam at Sutton said something you don't hesitate.
What is our hesitation comes?
When we hesitate, we hear an Ayatollah telling us to do something. You hear a hadith telling you to do something, and it may not be your habit.
Why do we hesitate? Why do we quarrel with it? Why do we push it back? Why do we sometimes rejected not maybe explicitly, but we'll put it aside? Why do we do this?
The heart is not ready to accept and is not ready to implement and is not ready to change. It has its own problems, like a rebellious child, the heart or the knifes the soul right? Or the nurse is like a rebellious child that likes certain things and dislikes certain things and it's has habits. So come to a child that is used to eating candy, right or chocolate before dinner. And you tell him stop doing this? What do they do equal just you know, comply presently with you and say yes, I don't want any sweets.
They're not going to do this. Because this is something that the child likes, and the soul right and the neffs is as childish as a child, it has these things that it likes, and these things that it dislikes. And if you do not discipline, that thing that is inside of us and we don't discipline, we just let it do whatever it wants, it controls us. So when you bring this idea and it says do or don't. And the ad that says do or don't or this ruling that it says do and don't and you find that a person is fighting when you're fighting with it tells you the heart is not ready. It is not pure enough, not talking about genuine disagreement of opinion. And understanding. I'm not talking about
that. That's different. Talking about actually right when something is clear, and the other person is pushing it back and they say no no, no internally before saying that externally. No, no, no, I don't want it to be this way this way. I want something else. I want my own desire I want my own self I want my own thinking I don't want I don't like this is the heart is not ready to do it. So hard has not been cleansed. And I've been prepared to receive something from Allah Subhana Allah data but rather it's on its own path, not the path of Allah subhana wa Adana. So that's the problem with this.
Right. And this talk, if you remember, we've talked about it before,
in the context of saying that when you commit a sin when we commit a sin, it leaves what in the heart
adopts a black mark, right. And then you add another what happens? another one, another one, another one, another one. And then like any piece of clothing, right, once it's contaminated enough, the original color then original purity of that clothing is completely concealed. And whatever you can see is the contamination is the dirt on top. That's what happens to the heart. One, followed by another followed by another and it's completely transformed. So the prophets a lot he sent me saying one of the things that maintains the health of your heart or corrupts your heart depending on your choice is salata Juma is listening to Allah and he says come to the Salah. If you do it, it
continues to sustain and maintain the health of your heart.
You know, don't do it once, twice, three times. Then you have brought upon yourself that steal from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
when there is discovering
you think it is easy.
Why? To listen to the Koran and move and be moved by?
Do you think it would be easy to listen to this Hillel or this is haram and actually comply?
Do you think it's easy to sacrifice for the sake of Allah? subhanaw taala? Do you think it's easy to understand the wisdom of allowing something that happens to you think it's easy? It's not easy. Because the heart is distinct from Allah subhanaw taala so far away from Allah Spano.
So it needs to come back, how can it come back? And if this person is that done for him means like, there's a seal. He missed three Fridays, is that done?
There always is hope there's always a chance, he can always come back or she can always come back, but not in this particular thing. Because not an obligation on sisters. But if it's something else that caused the heart right to harden so much, there's always a chance for you to come back and say a little I repent, I come back to Allah subhana wa Tada, and start taking down these walls, brick by brick.
And come back to Los pinata. And then you will find that your heart is a different type of heart. And there's a different type of response. But it needs what repentance,
needs, admission of guilt needs that you change and we change our habits. So that we do not neglect what our last panel or data loves. Whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala has commanded. We don't neglect it. Otherwise, we'll find that there's always right a distance between us and our hearts. I want my heart to listen to a lot but it can't. I want my heart to be to have pleasure in it, but I can I want my heart to learn from what it sees around it, but it cannot I want my heart to contemplate this world around it. Learn the benefits of the Quran, but it cannot it cannot cannot cannot cannot Why can't it do? The heart was designed by the way
the heart was designed. Why was the heart designed for by the way? Why do you think the heart was created?
The heart was created to love Allah subhana wa tada the heart was created to understand what Allah reveals.
Listen to it, and follow it. That's what the heart was created for what when you find that it's unable to do all of these things. It means the heart has these clogs in it.
And you need to go inside and start cleaning it so that the blood can run freely. The blood that I'm talking about is the blood of the man or the flow of a man has to be unclogged. And the clogs there is the clog of sin the clog of being happy with it. The clock of it being part of our life. Not an irregularity is sometimes happens but I come back to the last panel about a feature
here's the other but no it doesn't cool to solder.
Right? Even if he doesn't hear the other end but he knows that there's a mistake. He knows that there's a mess because he knows that this is the term for the salon. He doesn't come He knows this is how long but it's done consistently who knows this is supposed to be an obligation on us but consistently is ignored.
That is the clock that is in the heart so it needs to be cleaned to the heart again can experience life life that is part of EMA.
we have three types of hearts.
There is the heart of the believer.
Right Calvin woman
and there's the heart of the non believer cultural capital.
And there's the heart of the hypocrite.
So the prophets A lot of you sent him said in the howdy
Hello Hello monaka
He will make his heart the heart of a hypocrite
because we said that it's the hypocrites who leave Masada
and inversely right conversely it is the believers who adhere to the salon. It is true, right? Because the opposite of this is true. If it is the people of nofap who abandon the salah and run away from it, it is the people of EMA who value the salah and hold tight to it. So you want to increase your Eman to remedy or EMA you already know that one way that we can do it. Susana.
So the prophets A lot of you send them is saying now here is your heart and
You will get to decide what happens to it.
The first thing is that if you behave like the people of nifa, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you the heart of the people.
And one of the things that they do is that they don't come to the salon.
They don't come to solids and drama.
As long as they can avoid it, they'll avoid a lot of drama. As long as they can hide from it, they will hide
such a heart when it becomes because that's the second consequence. First is the first is the See, right? And if that still continues, and it's not fixed, and it's not reversed. The second thing that happens is for a person, they acquire the heart of the moon.
And the heart of the moon
has or has and should have the attributes of the people of nifa. So when you go through the Quran, you throw the gudas through the sin of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and think about the attributes of NEPA,
that heart will have a portion of it.
That heart will have a portion of it, what is it? how hard the hypocrites What does it have?
One of the things that it has is a lot of doubt.
Because the hypocrites unlike the non believer, right, the hypocrite is living among whom
I mean Muslims. So he has heard and he has learned the truth.
And in fact, he has prayed with Muslims, fasted with Muslims performed other acts of obedience with Muslims. But he decided to leave all that ignore and neglect and disregard all that and go to the other side.
In his reality internally, that's what he wants to do, or she wants to do. And he has as Allah subhanaw taala described them in the Quran with Oblivion, Avenida de la Ilaha, Illa, Allah, they're confused.
They hear some of the truth, and we think it might be but then they hear something else. And they are attracted to it. So they have this confusion all the time, and doubt all the time about Islam.
So neglecting what Allah wants and what He commands, produces doubt in the heart, remember, we talked about this before? Right?
That is the disease of shower, right? The disease of shower produces the disease of shubha. And the disease of shubha. produces the disease of shower. So the disease of desire in the heart leads to doubts and doubts, when they are nurtured in the heart doubts about Islam, they lead to disease about desire.
So here, they are hot will have doubts in it. serious doubts about Islam about Allah about the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So lack of Islamic practice, it could be fasting and it could be the Salah, it could be there's a cat, but when there is
sort of shortcoming or it's missing,
then it produces that
you want to eliminate this doubt. And you may encounter someone
say I have this doubt about this idea. And I'll have a doubt about this Hold on. And they have these, you know, whispers that come about a lot of his profits or you send them one of the things that you can say to yourself or say to this person is how is your data by the way?
How is your data? How is your relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada, granted? Granted? I'll answer whatever doubts you have.
But at the same time, my answers may mean nothing.
If you're a bird with a loss of Hana what data is lacking?
Because what is the source of these dots?
A missing relationship with a last parameter. That's the source of this stuff. It hasn't. It has not you've not allowed your data to build a man in your heart. See, you will always have that.
So you want to fix it.
Fix it by improving your image and proving your a god and coming closer to our last panel data, then Allah will take care of what your shape on your enemy because the shape line is taken advantage of your weakness.
You're not strong enough against the shape on solutions on is taking advantage of that. So yes, there are some questions that need to be answered, but also take care of how you how close you are to our last panel data and don't neglect these schemas because when you neglect these commands, your doubts will increase.
Your other religious observance also increased that's the heart of a hypocrite. If you're a man or your practice sucks suffering in one way or in one area and you don't fix it and I don't fix it. And he leads to at least part of the heart becoming or acquiring that attributes of hypocrisy.
We have to also be afraid that is going to spread to other parts too.
So you leave the salon or you leave at least a lot of gym. I think that's that's not going to stop there.
There's not go to other Sala the daily prayers, it does not go to fasting, it doesn't go to the car, it doesn't go to other header that has other obligations we're supposed to do, or to head on clear head on, we're not supposed to come close to. But now because the man is weak, it's easier and we're more bold to committed spreads.
So a there is doubt, right, be that disease is spreading.
And also, in addition to it spreading anyone who has hypocrisy in their heart. And by the way, as we said before, no one should say to themselves, I'm free of it.
I don't have any thought no one should say that to themselves. Everybody should we should be afraid that they could be have some hypocrisy in their hearts. Right. And knowing the world today slightly to be true. Knowing the world as it is today, and the level of our Eman and the strength of bartholin. falsetto and how widespread it is. The likelihood is that they are we are more infected with nifa than then we are safe from it.
And remember, right, right.
And one of the setups that hasn't philosophy, I think is the one who said it that the one who's afraid of nifa is the one who actually has a man and the one who feels that he is safe from it is the one who's actually infected with it.
Because the one who has a man is sensitive to the slightest thing
that comes down to the slightest distance between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala this like a healthy person, healthy person. If it becomes slightly ill he notices.
Whereas a person who is riddled filled with disease, you add another one to it, it doesn't show. So ready suffering, there's already pain. So the heart that is already suffering doesn't feel right. Doesn't feel nifa doesn't feel feel without increases.
But about a heart that is healthy feasor
so when you're afraid it feels that he is I'm afraid I am worried about the next slide. I'm worried about how much I have fulfilled the last commands. And worried about it I could be a person of any far none that I disbelieve in Allah Subhana Allah data or disbelieve in his prophets, a lot of you said them, I know that this is not a fan. I know that I believe what I believe I have that type of email, but the underneath
that I say something and I do something else, right? I pretend the man is not very strong. And when a man is not very strong, that small only thought can lead to the big unify.
So we're more likely to have that than actually be free of it. So
and that heart of a hypocrite but I also wanted to say once one other thing that it has, it will have it in proportion to how much easier and he thought the task about much hypocrisy has hatred for some of what Allah has ordained and commanded
and love for some of what Allah hates, it will happen.
Because why does it have hypocrisy in it anyway? Well, where did that hypocrisy come from?
From disobeying Allah subhanaw taala. Why did they? Why is this person disobeying Allah?
Why? Why do you think? What does anybody disobey Allah?
Its preference. I love this more than that. I love because you have love in your heart right? towards something.
And that loves sometimes overwhelms it and your awareness of Allah subhanaw taala declines. Your consciousness of Allah declines at that moment, that love of that other thing is strong and flamed by desire or whatever. So you commit so to always love for something that promotes your pushes you to do something that is hard on. So this person who is a hypocrite always, or has some hypocrisy in their heart. Always love something that Allah hates. Always. And the opposite is true. Always hate something that Allah loves.
So when that thing comes, and they hear about it,
right, they hear it.
Right? We may not be aware of it, but they hate it.
Or it's time to pray.
You may pray, but there's resistance in the heart to it right, hatred, hatred, maybe too strong but at least resistance but there is some things hatred.
And again, if you want to find some
Why do we Muslims right sometimes argue against things that are really clear in Islam
that Allah loves? or something's clear that Allah hates, why are we fighting over it? Some people are saying no, it has to be halal and it's haram or it has to be haram and is hella, why do we fight over it? It's not always that it's confusing.
But the hearts are clashing.
It's not the minds that are clashing. It's not like oh, this is not clear. This is clear. Sometimes it is. Yes. But really the other part the other times, it's the hearts that are clashing. Loves are crashing, a clashing. This person loves a loss of Hannah with the Allah. So he wants what Allah wants. This person loves himself more, so he wants what he wants. So when we start arguing and talking about it, we're arguing right on two parallel levels that don't meet.
Because the principle is not the same principle. I'm not have not made a last panel, the final judge made myself the final judge in the stand the difference here, I may have made myself the final judge. Right. That's what you can call sometimes bias.
And that bias sometimes is very hidden, very hidden. Yeah.
Even when you sometimes you know, some of some of the some of the other Mountain barndominium. And he said, just very insightful. He says when I want to research a matter,
before I do, I try to go back to step back a little bit and read myself as much as I can of my bias.
Because you know where you're going and researching a 15 matter. I don't know if you've done that, right, you probably research something.
And before you even research it, your heart is inclined,
one way and when you find evidence that supports the other position, what do you feel?
But when you find evidence supporting what you want,
what do you feel? Happiness, I found it right. And sometimes it's not sinister sometimes it's just because my Shafer I adopted disposition the one I love my shape, Dr. disposition, this there is this shape, whatever, uh, you know, older shape or contemporary shape, he likes this position. I've heard of another shape. I don't like him so much. I don't know much about him. But now they have these two opinions. So when you're researching it inside of us, I already want one opinion and not the other. So saying this is bias. Right? If I grew up, for instance, let's say,
and I've decided, Okay, I'm gonna be in sha Allah, I will favor the opinions. And nothing gets the Maliki's, it could be grown to 100, it doesn't matter. But I'm now decided to pick a position based on evidence. But I grew up a certain way with a particular method, right? When I'm actually researching I may unwittingly right without noticing, favor that over another just because of my own bias. So he says I step back and I try my best to rid myself of bias and then acknowledge my bias. So as I am researching it, every time I ask Is this because of bias or bias because of the evidence, bias or evidence bias or evidence. So a lot of times also, when we're arguing with each other, we're
arguing bias, arguing evidence.
Otherwise, if it's evidence, it'd be a lot easier. I will not will not always agree, but at least it's evidence versus evidence so you can be more objective about it. bias against bias, you cannot
meet and agree on one common thing and bless you abandon that bias. So when it comes to the issue of nofap, there is love
but not for a lot of love for the self love for the shape fun. And when they see right because of this, they will see something that Allah Subhana Allah hates rising and growing. There will be love for it and praise for it. And something that Allah loves, right, but he but they hate something that Allah loves, but they hate and it's actually right suffering.
They praise that and they approve of it and they like it. So that's another indication of the heart that Do you love what Allah loves and hate what Allah hates? Or does the heart have another compass and another direction.
So here, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said in the Hadith, right, and this hadith is an example that you can use for all the other obligations that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us a lot did not make something an obligation
and a regular
obligation except that you need it
except that you need it. Otherwise Allah subhanaw taala doesn't want to burden you.
So, for you to actually achieve skia you know by the way some people think that if I want to achieve test gear you know I have to travel somewhere I have to meet with shifts so and so this shows this group has the secret pathway to disappear that the only they have or select people have an eye you hear that
but Subhanallah this key is closer to you than you think.
Right, but we are attracted to mysterious and unknown
this key is on this island you'll meet this shade hole be on top of a mountain and then you'll ask these questions that will be revealed to you the secrets of the universe right? It's not like that it is so close to you. Because I lost a panel with Allah revealed that to Mohammed Salah lo Ani, or send them Who gave it to you. This key is not supposed to be hidden, is Arpita supposed to be hidden, is supposed to be hidden. It's not supposed to be hidden or complicated. It's so easy and test key that everybody needs to reach Allah subhanaw taala is only in the hands of few people. It's not cannot be logically cannot be common sense rejects this. So Allah subhana wa Tada, right. He
said, this is your path to test can you pray the five daily prayers why he didn't make them an obligation on you. You go to Juma and you honor it and you do it with all the advocates and the sooner I'd get along make it an obligation. And when you give your heart to it, a lot gives you your heart back filled with a man
that's your path Fortescue, you miss it, and you begin to suffer the consequences of disobeying Allah subhana wa Tada. And we want you to inshallah, lastly, just to remember this example, because
Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, Allah noodle similar to a lot of Allah is what the nor the light of the heavens and the earth
means that everything else is in darkness, by the way, so
everything else is in darkness alone notice similar to a lot more Mona Woody, and he's the one who is love the light of the heavens and the earth, and the one who gives them light. The source of light is a loss of Hannah with data. Everything else is in darkness until Allah gives it light. So you want the light in your life and the light in your heart, the light of
how to get it is to be close to a loss of panel data, who is the source of this light and you will get it.
You run away from Allah, you live in what darkness, that's how it is. So when you attend the Juma every Juma is a further injection of light into your heart. And rissalah is a further injection of light into every piece of the Quran you read. every act of obedience is more light that you're putting in your heart. So this is the heart and you putting extra light in it. When you don't do it, the heart is missing this light. So be darker. Take more of that out, it will be darker, darker, dark until there is no light in it at all. That's the heart of the hypocrite and the heart of the nonbelief.
So that's the light of last panel done and that's the fiscal of his prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, and that's what he told him repeatedly in the Quran. You're suffering, you're distressed worship Allah subhana wa Tada. What is this i O Allah Allah Monica de casa de Luca Bhima, Hulu for sub zero bacova communist serie de noir Buddha back at the Yeti achillea thing. He says Allah subhanaw taala says we know that your heart, your chest is constrained is tight because of all these things that they are telling you of how they're receiving this message and what they're saying about it. That had put in the heart of the Prophet sallallahu sent him some tightness and discomfort.
They're not accepting the truth. They're not accepting email. She says we know what your heart is going through. What's your chest is going through? What is he supposed to do? What did he tell him to do? First? Become a communist surgeon. glorify Allah subhana wa tada and praise Him and be among those who prostrate.
You have pain inside.
We have pain inside we have pain inside. So let's say I have you know you have pain and say this is what he said to his pockets a lot. He said, I know you have pain inside. This is what you're supposed to do. glorify Allah and praise Allah and prostrate to him, be among those who cry straight
to kill your team and worship your Rob until you reach the certainty a certainty of
That's your medicine. That's the medicine of your heart. That's the medicine for profit compartments, a lot of cinnamon that's the medicine for everyone who follows him have muscle a lot insulin and once his heart to be alive until they meet a last panel with Allah. That's the medicine.
Everybody, so that's the path of this year right? obey Allah subhanho wa Taala and don't just obey Him, right? And remember this insha Allah and put it inshallah teach it to your children Salatu Juma I teach it to them is something that is sacred no matter what never missed a lot of demand right never miss a lot of

Yeah. So you know,
we disagree about the time
but they say that the most accurate of opinions or the strong
Girl opinions insha Allah, it's the last hour on that day, the last hour on that day, so after us to matter of right, closer to my heart, the last portion, just before my head, they say that's the stronger opinion accuracy. I mean, that's a lot of us. So the stronger opinion right, the other set is the time from when the Imam sits on the member or sends the member till the Salah. Right. But the stronger opinion or law item is that it is the last hour of that day. So the last hour of that day is just before
an hour, it doesn't mean as I said when it's mentioned in Arabic.
Exactly. It's a portion of time. So a portion of them doesn't mean 60 minutes and 60 seconds.
Yeah. Anything else? Yeah.
That's also difficult, right? Asking difficult questions is asking about multiple demands.
Freedom as a
