So inshallah today This will be the introduction, the introductory lecture for this series of the explanation of the 40, hadiths, interest kiya and Islam on Hulu.
And this is a compilation that I collected that I put together with the intent to end with the hope by the permission of Allah subhana wa tada that I knew and everyone who listens to that will be able to approach this topic of reforming their hearts and purifying their souls, through the words and through the wisdom and the counsel of the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, you earlier he was in them.
And what better way to be able to reform our hearts and change ourselves than through the words of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and also through the Quran itself. And basically, this is an introduction, we're now we're going to be dealing with the first Haddad's today that will be next week. But this is an introduction, an introduction, just like when you open a book and you read the introduction, the introduction sets for you, what the author wants to say, people who write books, people who review books tell you read the introduction, is very important for you to read the introduction, sometimes more than the other chapters. Why? Because it is there that the author
divulge his right to you why he wrote that book, what he wants to do with that book and what the chapters of the book will be about. So it's a condensation what that book is, so it tells you pay attention to the introduction. So that's why we want to introduce this topic. And we basically, inshallah, want to answer three broad main questions today. What are we going to do? Why we are doing it? And how we are going to do it 123 inshallah, then we'll be done.
So as far as what we want to do, I've answered part of that question, which is that we have 40, headaches, concentrated and related to matters of the heart matters of the soul and how to fix them.
And we're going to be taken in Sharla. Each week, Heidi's also to explain it, to digest it, and to learn from it.
Now, the important question, here is why we want to do this.
That's really the important question. Why do we want to do this? And we say that the ham dealer soldier,
first of all,
each one of us has a problem,
has a burden, has a worry about something in the future has a regret about something in the past, there's something right, there's a burden that every one of us is carrying no matter what, and if not now, soon, because this isn't the nature of this life. This is how Allah created this life. And sometimes, you know, you meet people, sometimes I myself, you yourself, will be so depleted of energy because of the burden that we're facing. Because of the problems. We think that they're not going to end. We don't know how to solve them, when we find no exit. So we asked ourselves, how can I have the energy to save myself? How can I find the even the energy to find the solution to my
problem? I have no energy, right? So I'm completely out and completely depleted. And if you are a doctor of the hearts, right,
and if someone is coming to you, and they're having all sorts of problems, and they're asking you for a solution, you know what the first prescription you should give
the first prescription
look inside. That is the first prescription take care what is inside. Because the solution to every problem that you have begins from the inside, from your heart. That's how you begin, not from the outside the outside. That's the next step. But sometimes, the only thing that you need to fix is on the inside. Sometimes the state that our heart is in is the obstacle to our own happiness extending between us and finding the solution, the way that our heart is, it's a mess inside. So how can
You be, you know, how can it be a mess on the inside, and you're trying to find a solution for it on the outside, on the inside, we're defeated on the inside we are weak, you know, as an Athenian ally. And he says that if the person can conquer his own temptations can can conquer the internal enemy, the shaitaan on the inside, for who.
So you are in front of the external enemy, you're weaker. If you're weak on the inside, you're even weaker on the outside. So you see what he's telling you. He's telling you, when you want to take care of anything, you begin on the inside, and then you move outside. So the prescription to every ailment to every trouble to every you know, thing that you're facing life is look inside. How is your heart with Allah subhana wa Taala? That is, that is a like a reply to every problem that I am you're facing? How is your heart with Allah? subhanho wa Taala? Is it close to him or not? Do you trust Allah or not? Do you love Allah and His Prophet or not? What are you willing to give up for
the sake of Allah? What are you willing to do for the sake of Allah?
If you answer these questions, then you will know what your heart is like, then you can move afterwards, after you fix your heart, you can move on and face the other problem that you have. But before that, I assure you that any solution that you're trying to seek is not going to work or it's not going to be permanent. Because the basis of all of it is in the heart. And it's the prophets of the law. And he was in them tells us in the La La Lu, it also orico, SME, kumala, Kenyan, Guru illa lubicon.
If you require americom, say Allah subhana wa Taala, he doesn't look at your image, and doesn't look at your body, but it looks at your heart.
And another way is your heart and your action. So you see how much work we dedicate to the exterior. We take care of that. And that's what we're looking at. Beautiful today or I'm handsome today not I'm going to buy something new because I want to look better, I'm going to exercise we can I want to look fitter, we dedicate most of our resources, most of our time, most of our attention to the outside.
And Allah Subhana Allah is telling us through His profits a lot he was sending a lot doesn't look at all of that.
In other words, he doesn't care about all of that. He cares about what is on the inside. And that's the least thing that we pay attention to. As we will learn in sha Allah, you know, as when we study the other Hadith
is that the most important organ and part of your body is what? Your heart period. The most important part of your body is your art. That's what Allah is looking. Yes, that the part that we neglect the most. That's why we have to do this. That's why we have to do this. Another reason why we have to do this
is that Allah subhanho wa Taala
wants us to be united wants us to be together. Right?
And you look at the Muslims, today, whether at the entire Ummah or you look at us, you know, as a microcosm, you look at a city or you look at a community and you will find a lot of friction, dissension fragmentation, is that a reality or not? That's the reality.
So what did the Prophet did the companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam have that we don't have today.
Allah tells us in the Quran, right? In the famous IO a person will be heavily Lamia will not follow. What guru Allah Allah.
Allah subhanahu binetti Juana so remember the favor of Allah upon you? Were you were enemies before and by the favor of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, you became Brethren, you became brothers of each other.
So so just I want you to know the transformation. And one of the things that I want to urge you to do today is that when you sometimes encounter an IRA, when you encounter a hadith stop a little bit and think about it, yes, they were enemies before you understood we understand what they were enemies. I hate you. I can't look at you. They may even think I want to kill you or you want to kill me that's that's the animosity. I will not be with you at the same place. That's what the animosity I want to hurt you. That's what an enemy is.
Then how can they be transformed right from that into a one. You know what a brother is? I am taking care of you and you're taking care of me. I will you know, watch for your interests. You will watch for my interest, I will push you, you know, towards Allah subhanaw taala you're going to push me towards Allah Subhana Allah will help you and He will help me to be from
This to that happens through the name of Allah subhana wa tahun right and in the other area also

Allah subhanho wa Taala supported you ganja profit from sort of life alone isn't supported you with his victory and with the meaning. And he brought their hearts together in something that is very amazing were you to spend the losses were you to spend everything on the face of this earth to bring them together, you won't be able to do so.
But Allah brought them together.
Any meaning? What? Meaning take millions among millions, billions upon billions, right? have plans and lectures and conventions, and workshops, whatever you want to do, thinking that you can do through that bring people's heart together, and realizing you won't be able to do it. Your outmost produce your output you will not be able to do it. It who was able to do less of hands on with Allah. And that is incredible. How was he able to do it? Because they accepted Allah subhana wa tada as the Lord as their inner hand they had, amen, amen transforms, and it goes back to the heart. A lot grab the hearts together.
So when there is a man of love brings the hearts together. And when there is no
friction, people start clashing with each other. That's what happens. Right? When they don't take care of their heart people start clashing with each other, even though on outwardly, you know, they may have right the proper procedure, right? They have the proper, the proper, you know, apparently the proper, and all of it. There is like something inside that if you don't take care of it, how can we be together? If I am jealous of you?
How can I accept the truth from you? If I am jealous of you? If there's has said, I can't admit it, and I cannot accept it from you. I'll insist on the wrong that I have. Why? Because my heart cannot accept that you could be right than I could be wrong. But if there is the world or there is humility at all stems from the heart and I can accept it and I can change. But without that I cannot change and wonder how does this happen? How does this transformation take place through Eman And Allah subhanho wa Taala
another thing also, which is very interesting, a lot of the disagreements that we have today, right? are not because the truth is hidden or mysterious. The truth is manifest is very clear. It's right there in the Quran. It's right there in as soon as you find some people arguing against it. How can you not accept it? You think to yourself, how can you not accept it? How can you not see it?
It goes back to the hearts again.
how Allah Subhana Allah says in the sauce with 180 and Edina ticker Barona Phil all the
What a year of sabirah who's de Lucia de la Rosa de la jolla. Savita
it should be a terrifying area.
Because Allah says, I will turn away from my Ayah those who have arrogance on the face of this earth without any rights. And anyone who's arrogant is arrogant without any right I will turn them away from my eyes that means they cannot understand them. They cannot recognize them. They will not accept them. Why? Because what do they have arrogance? What are the words arrogance? insane in the heart.
And if they see see Allah subhanaw taala sing and if they see every Ayah
Okay, they will not benefit from it. Every if used Marshall to them all evidence. This is what Allah says, This is what the prophet says this is what is decent, rationally, this is what is not going to
if we if it's not going to work for them, and if they see the path of righteousness, they're not going to take it.
And if they see the bad path of indecency, they will take it. Why? Because Allah subhana wa Tada. Right, and it's their own fault Allah Subhana Allah taken from them the ability to recognize truth from falsehood. This is what the heart loves. I hate decency. I hate righteousness, I'll never accept it. I want this to be helpful. And I will do everything in my power to convince people that it's valid and rejects any evidence that it is hard on. That's how we are that's sometimes we may be so this is because of what not because the evidence is weak not be evidence is not there. It's because the heart has trouble in it has not been reformed has not been fixed.
We want to do this because
for over a century or
So, reformers have been trying to revive the Mohammed sallallahu wasallam and reform it in matters of our feed and reform. It's a matter of fitness and performance here and there, and that reformation cannot actually be complete without that Ischia. It cannot be completely that Ischia because it's part of Islam itself. So we can just reform or focus, let's say on Al Qaeda, or let's say on fit, right, that's that's just dividing the Sharia. In fact, if you want a complete reform, you want the reform of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which is the reform of the entire being of the entire society.
And let's say your take one Hadith all of us know it, but maybe we probably have mentioned something new about it in sha Allah, that famous Hadith who is you should call on the Dalai Lama committed to Allah casati.
people and nations are about to invite each other over you. Like people invite each other over a meal to eat. You know, this Hadith, right? We've heard this hadith before. So here with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that soon, people are going to be attacking you ransacking your country's lands, occupying them taking whatever they want from it. Like people who have a meal, have big plate of food, and they invite each other, come and eat. And you come and eat, and you over there Come and eat, and everybody's coming and eating and there is no resistance,
no repercussions. You can come and take whatever you want. That's what a meal is right? There's no guard, you can take whatever you want. He says you will be like that. No resistance, no repercussions, nothing that they fear when they do that to you.
Now the Sahaba are asking a very common sensical question afterwards. They say prophet of Allah, I mean thing that internationally oma is are with you then. Because that's what they can think of. When we're few. Maybe they can do that to us. But we are plenty, how could that be possible? So they're asking are with you then, because the numbers are increasing? Are we going to be few then, and he sets a lot he was in LA? No.
And tomiyama, eating casier there's a lot of you, then we're lucky enough to say say, You are like the dregs of the sea, you know, the contamination, you know, and the pollution that the sea carries on, it's,
that's what it is. That's what that was his other words for it, you're worthless at that time. Right? At that time, there's not a lot in you.
What ends on the law, inhabit them in saluda, do we come and then your enemies, Allah Subhana, Allah is going to take that fear and respect that enemies that your enemies had for you, they are not going to take it away from their hearts. They're not going to fear you anymore, or respect you anymore, or whatever, and that will be common.
And he will put weakness now notice here, he will put weakness where in your hearts.
That is the diagnosis of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I want you to remember it, he will put weakness in your heart. He didn't say you'll have weak bodies, weakness in your heart. So they said woman when we are sort of
in the middle of less than the Sahaba asking the questions that need to be asked. They're asking where is this weakness coming from? They understand what one is. But there's one to say. Where is this weakness coming from? He says hobo dunia will come over here to note a lot of dystonia and hatred of death.
What did he say? Love and hatred. Where is love and hatred
in the heart,
then your hearts are weak. And when your hearts are weak, your bodies are weak. If your hearts are strong, your bodies are strong.
As I think Liam said, he said, the strength of the believer of the moment is in his heart. The weakness could be in his body, the strength is in his heart. The hypocrite his strength is in his body, his weaknesses in
a weak heart, but a strong body, don't you because some of my other body strong, eloquent, maybe that's what a hypocrite but inside empty, is a believer is the opposite of that. You may look at him not admire, you know how strong he is or how eloquent he is. But it's a lot of work to allow you to look inside you'll see what will amaze you. Is that how hard His heart is filled with the amount of Allah the vocalist like a lion on the inside.
Why we want to do this is because we are living really in a global material culture. Everything is reduced to the dollar. Right? There is no emotional dimension, intellectual dimension, there is no spiritual dimension. So how would you judge the success of a person? how well they're doing economically? How much money do they have? How will the world are you going to judge a community How well are they doing how much money they have? How do you judge a country in the same way
There's no other measurement except the dollar, right? And the media broadcasts all of this and we're not immune from it. So now even you find a lot of Muslim countries are, you know, sinking in this material. See, it's not a loss of data. It's not the Day of Judgment, but it's making money and getting more of it, and judging people based on that, and judging my work based on that.
And that's why you find that a lot of people, non Muslims, non Muslims are talking about non Muslims, non Muslims, running away from all of this and saying that we had enough of it, and looking for spiritual paths, and spiritual solutions. That's why you find such things as meditation, very popular Eastern religions, very popular, because they, they trying to find a balance, we're sick of that material, right focus on more than just a body, or more than just money, who is going to take care of my soul. So they go for meditation, by alternative spirituality, and they're willing to try everything. And so panela, even some Muslim countries, and some Muslims are being strict in that, in
it, hear them talking about the Fung Shui, maybe you've heard of that. Muslims are talking about that energy, cleaning your energy and how to have positive energy and how not have negative energy. All this is coming from foreign sources. And we can understand it when it's coming from people who are looking, and they don't have anything.
But we have an incredible reservoir of spirituality that you can find in the Quran. And the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this long history of scholars and pious people that we can learn from. So what we have to do we have to go to it, we have to learn it, and become the teachers of that spirituality to everybody else, right? First the Muslims, but then also non Muslims, we have here something that you can learn from, we have something here that will benefit you. And that will also do something to counter the image of Muslims are being very harsh and very, you know, law. It's a law of religion. It's a legal religion and nothing else that is not true. The
law is connected intimately to your heart and your heart is connected to the law as well. It's not just do and don't do and don't, and your heart is connected to it because I love this thing. And I hate that thing. Because Allah subhanaw taala loves it and hates it.
Why we want to do this and especially the focus on the guidance from the Quran and the Sunnah. Because suppose that you are convinced that we need more spirituality in our life and in our lands, it is very easy to be or to tread the wrong spiritual path is very easy. Right?
I'll give you a few examples.
At the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself.
And a few people came, and they wanted to ask the Prophet sallallahu send him about his worship. They didn't find him. They found
his wife, they asked her
how much does the prophets always send them worship?
She told them
they didn't find it to be that much. They found it to be sort of okay, but not that much.
So they thought to themselves were he is the Prophet of Allah subhana wa Tada. So he doesn't need to do as much his sins are forgiven.
So they declared to themselves, we took a promise. He says, I saw one of them said, I will never get married.
Another person said, I will never will always be fasting, never eat during daytime, and will always be praying during the night. Always. No break. That's my whole night. That's my whole day. Another person that said, I will never eat meat.
I'll give up meat.
That's been very difficult for some of us, right? Give me okay. So, yeah, you don't have to that moral of the story. You don't have to give up me, moderately, but you don't have to give me so when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam came, and he heard what they said he was upset and angry with them.
Now let's just pause it here a little bit. Here were people who are pious,
and were coming and that they want to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they said, We want to do more. We want to do more. Right? And you don't especially that you don't get a lot of people today who will come to you and say I want to do that much.
And yet the prophets a lot he was in and was angry with them. angry and emphatically said
no lie in you India. korakuen Lila, he worship Allah. By Allah. I am the person who has the most taqwa among you and I fear Allah the Most
What a kidney but I marry a woman and I eat meat. And I pray and I sleep. And I fast and I break my fast. Some days I fast Some days I don't. Then he said some unlucky balancing that if Elisa Mindy The one who does not want my son is not of me. In a sense, I am innocent of him innocent of his way.
What are the two things that they did that were wrong?
First, thinking that the worship of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was not the ultimate and the best.
And he was telling them No, think again. I fear a lot of the most, and I have the greatest stuff well, so my worship and my model is the best worship and the best model. You can top it, you can't do any better. Right? Don't think that if you do more, you've done better? No, that's the wrong way of thinking.
And he was angry with them because he says that type of path. If you continue on it, you're going to harm yourself.
And that's not my sooner you can continue doing the thing that you intend to do. never married. Imagine if nobody gets married.
Never eat meat. He says this is not my son and I fear Allah Do you think that you can be have more piety than meat, so on their path to spirituality and wanting to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala they exaggerated, they went to an extreme and this could happen at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this could happen even more after him.
Right. So, generations, after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you found some Muslims. And this is written in books. And they this this model or their model is presented as an example. If someone for instance, saying each day I will eat a grain of wheat.
That's it can eat that is spirituality. I'll eat a grain of wheat. How can you live on a grain of wheat.
But that is piety they consider. Another person would say, I'll never get married.
That is piety. That is taqwa that spirituality. Another person will say, I'll never wear good clothes, only wool, anything rough rags. That's the only thing cuz that's humility. Though the prophets alongside them wasn't like that.
Now the person will say I'll never drink cold water, I will never eat meat, etc, etc, etc, putting on themselves and then all Muslims afterwards a burden that Allah subhanho wa Taala and His Prophet sallallahu Sallam does not require and there's not one. That's the wrong path of spirituality. That's why when you want to spirituality, you have to go back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and say, how is he close to Allah? What did he tell us to do? What did he avoid? And then then the you will learn it. So you want it to be from the pure sources. And in handling our beloved, I mean, we have a model. It wasn't just theory by you wasn't just theory, somebody lived in the real
world and he did it. And that his prophet Mohammed Salah law, he was sentenced. So he provides for you the balance. You want to know how you look at what he did you want to know what not to do. Look at what he did. So he gave you the model. So Islamic spirituality has a model and it's fueled by the preservation of the Quran, and the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was in them. That's why it is very important.
Now I want to move now to the concept of this kiya una understand this gear in sha Allah.
This key should be very familiar to us, right? After all, it's related to what toward Zika all of us know what Zika is Abdullah, one of the pillars of Islam. So, it should be felt very familiar to a Muslim here. And you actually will find it in the Quran and then you find it in the Sunnah of the messenger. So, the law I knew it was synonyms. So, what I want to say is that we have to use it as a Quranic term as a term in the sooner but first of all, before we go into the ideas that mentioned it,
what is the meaning of this gear? What does that food Zakah mean?
It means purification and growth and blessing.
purification and growth right? Let me give you like a visual so that you will remember try to remember it inshallah you are you have a garden and you want to plant something, what do you have to do first? have to clean it. Right, take out the weeds, right, take out anything that is going to hinder the growth of the plants prepare it. So that's the first part cleansing purification. The next part you put in the seed you water it and you watch the plants grow.
That's what Zika is. You clean and then you grow you clean and you grow. And both of these things are connected. You cannot grow without cleaning. And there is no sense in cleaning without growing something in that spot. That's what
Ischia is you want to cleanse your heart? You want to cleanse your soul? empty it of any contaminants if it's like a cup and it's filled with dirty water, how do you fill it with clean water, pour out the dirty water, clean it, and then put in clean water. That's simple. If the heart is filled with jealousy, let's say or ship or in the last panel with Allah, which is the greatest contaminant, or hatred of other people, right? pride. If it has that, you know, it cannot mix very well with the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala all of these feelings will stand in its way. What do you have to do you treat it you create the arrogance and the jealousy and the shear, right and
the area and the algebra and the sum and all of these diseases, you treat them. And then you inject in it a man and to walk around on the last panel data so your heart grows and is cleansed hot and it grows and is cleansed. And it's a continuous process. It never ends until you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala you're continuously cleansing, cleaning, purifying and growing your heart with him and that's what this key is.
Allah subhanho wa Taala will just take three is about this gift from the Quran.
Allah subhana wa Dallas's Allahu
Allah subhanho wa Taala gives this gear to whomever he wishes and once
what we learned from this is that this gear comes from
Allah subhanho wa Taala he's the one who gives you this fear.
And that's right in the process of us purifying our hearts on that journey to Allah subhanho wa Taala must be completely reliant on him has complete our code and trust in Him in purifying our hearts and making them grow in eema. It is he who can do it. So we asked have to ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for it. And that's one of the great lessons of today. It can happen without a lot. So you have to ask Allah for it.
And we'll find inshallah, in the upcoming heads how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he's the Prophet of Allah and asked Allah to purify and preserve and stabilize his heart. So we have to ask Allah continuously for it, we can think that we are self sufficient, I'll fix my heart. Allah will fix my heart. So be attached to Allah subhana wa tada all the time. Yeah, Allah, I have this disease in my heart. Take it away. Y'all I'm finding this difficulty this resistance in my heart to Allah take it away. Yeah Allah and finding this thing difficult for me in my heart to Allah help me with it. It is you and Allah subhanho wa Taala communicating.
And the last panel what the Allah is the one who can fix it. So remember that.
The next is about Ischia where Allah Subhana Allah says gamma of sudden frequent Rasulullah minko yet, Maya Tina was a key como wikitravel hikma. It says, an our blessings upon you is that we have sent to you a messenger from among you, who recite to you our areas, and gives you a schema
and teaches you and kita the Quran and the Hickman which is the student of the prophets, Allah law, and he was in them.
So one of the missions, and I want insha Allah to shock us a little bit right? One of the missions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is to
get it. One of his one of the things that he was sent to do, and to ask you to do is to Ischia. So we're not bringing something for and this is one of the things that he was asked to do. As he was asked to teach you the book, as he was asked to teach you the sooner in them there is this key and he was asked to also do that the same to you. So when you want your test key, what do you take it from? I'm not as a Muslim, I'm not clueless. I'm not confused. I know that Allah sent him with this key. And the message of Islam is the message of this key. We're clear on what this means right? purification and growth, right? So this message of Islam is the message of teskey. So if I want it,
I know where it comes from, right? It's the message of Islam. And if I hold on to it completely, it will purify me, and it will hold it will help me grow and be closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala so I'm not clueless as to the source of mighty Ischia. I'm not clueless as to who gives it Allah subhanho wa Taala through who is Prophet sallallahu wasallam where's my model? What am I supposed to do? Look at him some allow it was cinnamon, he will tell you what to do. And that is Rama from Allah Subhana. Allah, that's Rama from Allah that we may not appreciate. Because others are not Muslims or Muslims who do not this, look around and don't know. Don't know they're experimenting. Try this pose
that works or maybe not. Stay away from this food it works or maybe not, by repeat these things. They may work they may not
They're experimenting, experimenting, experimenting. And the sad thing, really the sad thing that they think that this is working, this is what they're supposed to do. And the sad thing is that they may care or they may come and they may face a loss of power to Allah. And Allah will tell them, I did not ask you to do any of this. And none of this actually helped. And none of this will benefit you.
So that the virtue of Islamic spirituality or test gear is that it doesn't only help you here, it tells you when you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala it I can I can give you a technique, I can invent a technique like a breathing technique, and it can make you feel better come by, and you will feel better about yourself and you feel better about your life. But it won't help you when we meet a lot.
You find yourself you know, bankrupt, I did all of this thing for the junior now I have nothing but the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah you it was Selim can teach you something that will help you right now. Then when you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah will be happy with you. That's the difference. So quite fortunate, if you're going to take it from the book of Allah and His prophets of Allah He was in. And as it was his mission sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to teach it is also your mission to teach.
When you take it, and when you learn it, you become the messenger of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So your job is to learn it, and then teach it so part of what we want to do with this book we in the last general talk more about it is that you want to learn it, you want to digest it, but also you want to share it with others, you want to become a teacher of it. You don't have to have necessarily a hell of a to have information. And you convey that to people so that you convey what he conveyed some of it who isn't. And I'll introduce in Sharla the book shortly.
There is one Hadith that mentions this gear, and I want you to hold on to that Hadith because it defines it. One of the few heads maybe the only Hadith that defines this gear.
He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said other men couldn't see him upon an email. Three things that they are in you, you will taste email.
This tells you that a man has a taste and sometimes you'll be able to taste it and you'll feel it and it'll be as if a taste in your mouth you feel it will be around you in your body will feel different has a taste of EMA formula give us all that taste.
The first one man Abdullah, Hawaii, the Hawaiian hula either in the law, the one the first thing that you do, the one who worships Allah alone, believing that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah Allah.
This is the hate
and that our hate connects you immediately with Allah subhanho wa Taala no intermediates you don't have to rely on anybody else. That's the beauty of the Hadith. Okay. The next thing was a cattle man he he burned behind us who are our feeders and
what are you up to hurry Mata? What Adelina mareeba what a shout out on the EMA when I came in on Sophia Monica phenylalanine welcome Hi, Rahul. What
he says and he gives this occur of his wealth every year happily and willingly right? And he doesn't get the worst of his money. But if he has animals he doesn't give the sick one and the old one and the diseased one rather he gives from the middle because Allah did not ask you to give the best and is not also want you to give the worst but maybe we are when we are giving the Can we give money that doesn't apply to us. Unless inshallah you pick the best, you know, currency by the best the Christmas one. And he said that is for a loss of Hannah with data because that's the best that I have. But they had animals and they had crops. So profits, a lot of you sent him said you give it
you don't give the worst.
And I was not asking you for the best part from the middle. But the important part here he gives this account of his money happily and willingly every year.
And that sometimes is hard. Because when you give this a castle tembisa
again, the time for the soccer game again and I know it's not a lot but still I'm giving away money. I wish I could keep it you feel that when you shake it, keep it right. But then that tells you what that tells you. You have an attachment to wealth, attachment to money, but you can work on your heart and you can transform because you can tell yourself, no, no, no. The center to speak to yourself no listen.
Allah will purify the rest of your wealth when you do this. If it stays it contaminates the rest. There's no Baraka in it. And Allah will give Baraka when you give it away Allah will give Baraka will be multiplied, when you give it and Allah will give you great reward because it will satisfy the needs of someone and Allah will give you a great reward for it and keep telling you
yourself telling yourself that and you'll be able to give it willingly and happily. Right. But again, see, it's a process with your heart, you have to struggle with your heart. Never Be content with I'm going to give my Zika. And I hate it. And I'm giving it don't do that. Because you want to be included here. No, you say, I'm going to work on my heart for an hour for a day for a couple of days until I'm happy giving it and then you give it right. That's the difference.
And the third thing is, was it kind of so
and he has to scale himself. So they asked him, Well, I'm at this gear to Neff CEOs will allow What is this this Calvinist prophet of Allah, he said, and he Allah anila, hatefulness
that he knows that Allah is with him wherever he is, this is the Spirit.
And what a beautiful definition this is. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is both pointing to the procedure, the process and the end.
As far as the end is concerned, what does this remind you of, and yet an alumna Hazel McCann that he knows that Allah is with him wherever he may be? The definition of what not Islam, not a man but the third, esta that's what it is. It's telling you that is it, that if you preview this test key of your nerves, you will reach the state of Assam, which is the highest level and most of them are meaning do not reach the level of it is very, very few.
That's the end. But as a process all sorts of works very well. That wherever you may be, wherever you may be, you feel that Allah is watching you. And that our allies listening to what you're saying. Right, and that Allah knows what is inside your heart. And Allah knows what you're thinking Allah knows what you're going to do next. And wherever you're walking was with me and allows with me and allies with me. And if you bring that feeling that realization into your life, your life will reform the next hour or if you do this for the next hour, if you do this for the next day, you will find how we will behave differently. Because I'm not walking alone and walking in a sense with a lot
And he's watching me as I'm opening the door and he's watching me as I'm taking my the food into my mouth. And he's watching me as I'm talking to my wife and to my kids and he's watching every step, everything that I'm doing constantly under that, watch the last panel.
So you can do that, as you engage in what worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala and being very close to him, it becomes more of a habit. Right? More of a custom more of a thing that you don't have to
pressure yourself into doing you'll feel it more and more. But that's the definition and that's where I want to call it call it today a golden nugget. This is a piece of gold that I want you to hold on to an E lm and the llama Haytham again you know that Allah is with you, wherever you may be.
The next inshallah they want to see is on it tell you the story of the 40 headaches, right? Why 40 Hades and after that inshallah I will tell you how to approach this book and it will be done inshallah. So is this is not going to be too long, it's not going to burden you with
why 40 Hadith? What is 40 Heidi's come from right.
Like, we are all familiar with the 40 hadith of Noah, we are him online. Right?
So a Noah we are hi mama has this 40 Hadith and they are very famous. But there is a background to it. And it's interesting to understand the background just for us to understand, you know, religion a little bit better and its history a little bit better. Where does it come from? First of all, it was early on in Islam. A lot of scholars, you know, were it was customary for some scholars to identify certain Hadees as the foundations of Islam.
So, layman Shafi Ahmed Mohammed is happening raha we are a matter of Buddhahood, who is the author of a sin and sin and Buddha would write their statements that go back to them that they say, these three Hadees these four headings, these five headings are the foundations of Islam. That is all the other headings go back to them all the other headings are related to them, like in the Millennium Albania. Hallelujah movie, and these are the headings that the court so every other Hadith goes back to this Hadees. So there was this sort of realization, but there are some studies that are foundational
move forward now to the seventh century history. And there is Ireland called evenals Sala.
And he imagelist right. he narrates 26 Hadees. And he says this is a fundamental Hadees of Islam.
These 26 and now we're looking at ally ally who also died in the seventh century comes to these 20
Six hobbies add to them and makes them 42 so he takes what a masala did ask them and makes them 42 hobbies and they become known as an honorable owner novia. Right, and they become wide spread. Right?
And the people say and He's the owner said that Allah Subhana, Allah had blessed had blessed the work of an Amen we know where we are him Allah because of his loss. Because everywhere you find the 40 Hadith No. And everywhere also you find his other famous book be able to solve it. And when you think about it, when you look at these books, these books are not groundbreaking. He collected 40 had a three hour sleight of hand also not groundbreaking, but there is how am I great Baraka there. And that is the bulk of his loss. And that teaches us something so panela is that when you do something, what you do could be something very small, very small.
But because there is a slot in it, Allah subhanaw taala blesses it beyond your imagination. Yeah, similar to that, I just thought of it right now. When they came to even Malika hemolysin he was writing his motto. And they were telling him, they told him other people are writing what you're writing.
And you might think to yourself, if this comes to you, so what's the use? They're doing the same thing that I'm doing. The my buddy my Malik said mechanically.
What is for Allah subhanaw taala will stay it will persist. So they say his more state, all of the other efforts went away
is more or less state because of the loss that we expect that was in his work.
Now, why 40 had it in particular, mmm, no, we're gonna have more law mentions, he says that there's a weak Hadith that says whoever memorizes 40 Hadith from my own will be resurrected among the scholars. Right? But no, he says it's weak. hydro says it's weak. It's a weak Hadith. But the scholars of Islam from you know, ages from the time of who ignorant of the Latin Mubarak, Mottola. Right. In the second century Hijri have been collecting 40 Hadees and various topics and also the dean right in added in this and in that. So they've been collecting for two headings in this and this and that they covered everything by and they are even beyond count, you know, the, the books
that collected 40 headings are almost beyond count. So
this, this present work that is in front of you here, what I wanted to do is collect 40 headings, right, that will bring us all closer to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his teachings on the heart and the soul so that we take it from him directly. And take it from what Allah subhanho wa Taala said, directly, right, and we'll bring in sha Allah as far as we can, the example of those who follow but we want that pure source, so that we can avoid what we were talking about inshallah, and this is the compilation, you will find it is available from the bookstore. And the plan is to do the following that we will do Hadith every week. What do you do every week, because we don't want to
And we want to take the time to really absorb each Hadith and its lessons.
First, to give myself and to give yourself the time to apply it. So what we can do here, when we take the first day of the first Heidi, right? We're going to take it, I would recommend that you memorize it, right? Whether it's before or after, I would recommend that you memorize it, but you don't have to.
But when you sit inshallah and you listen to the Hadith, there's a page for explanation, by the explanation down if you can. And there's also a page for lessons. These are lessons that maybe we will talk about during, you know, the study circle.
Or maybe these are lessons that you can think about later. And maybe you can come and share with us or you may want to keep to yourself, but you write them down.
And that will help you interact with the headings because this has to and needs to be interactive. This is an interactive project. It's not something that is just given to you and you leave and you forget about it. No. You have homework actually to do no one is going to check if you've done your homework or not. So no stress over here. But this is your own homework. That Okay, I learned this Hadith, what do I do with it? Then? I have the explanation. What are the lessons you take the lessons, and I have a week to apply it.
Monday, Tuesday, how am I doing with this? Howdy Wednesday, Thursday till the time of the next today's How am I doing this Howdy. Right?
And this in fact was the way of the Sahaba may Allah be pleased with them. And we need to revive it right and more and do more and more of it. You know, so they allow and who said cannot
Illumina EDA tandem ashra iottie lomita jervois Honda hatakeyama b hin Fatah, aluminum, aluminum Ah,
that's that's how they used to do it. He said, one of us when we would learn 10 years from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not go beyond them until we apply them.
And when we apply them, then we move beyond them, right? So we learned a knowledge and application at the same time.
So that requires patience, patience, but they were very patient. And because they were very patient, they were able to do what they did, because it's not I will learn it and then I will park it somewhere, to later, I will take it and I will not take anything else until I apply it. And then when I apply it and move to the next thing, and then I'll move to the next thing. And Abdul Rahman Sula mural, the lady who's from the terrain says that about the people that taught them the Quran, he says, the people who taught us the Koran, they tell us that when they used to go to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and asked him for verses, they will only take 10
and not go beyond it until they would apply it the same thing. So it's not only I believe in the sword, it's all of them. So maybe we want to try to do something like this, because we can rush through it for a second, third, fourth, fifth, and so on, but we want to take time with it inshallah.
And inshallah, this is an ongoing project. So inshallah I'm always in need of your advice, and always in need of your feedback. And if you find that we need to add something, we need to modify something, something's out of place, something needs to be reordered, let me know in the Laszlo gel, because as I said, this is not a final project. Nothing is almost a final project. So I will benefit from your feedback and your advice. Don't hold back, don't hold back, I will benefit from it. And I'm all ears insha Allah to listen to it. So at hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. This is what I wanted to say, for tonight. I really thank you for your patience, and I hope I did not keep you for long.
If there are any questions, let me know.
And if the sisters also have any questions, please let me know. Yeah, so
the short, it's a collective shot shala so if the Hadith is a citizen, Buhari and Muslim will go to the Bukhari and Muslim and use the shot from over there. And also what contemporary scholars have said about it, right, which had may may make it easier
for you to do for instance, you know, if it is, you know, and the Hadith isn't the Mischka and what have you ever had, so I'm going to collect it from everywhere and bring it to you inshallah, and if you want me to tell you, every time we in the law, where does the shirt come from? I will let you know. Just just remind me. Right But you will find and that's an important point Zack Allah here. See, that's the benefit of the question. You will find that there is you know,
reference to who narrated and reported that Hadith Muslim Buhari, if it is not an Buhari and Muslim, you will find that I will follow it by who authenticated daddy. Right. And that's an important point. Also, for us as Muslims. If you want to take a Hadith, you have to make sure that it's authentic that it's
hearty and Muslim, you're fine. Have the Nabila. If it's not in Bukhari and Muslim, you actually want to quote a Adam, who has graded that Hadith. And there are plenty of Roma who have graded these Hadith right we have, you know, Harry himself, we have Ahmed Mohammed and we have a telemedia without and also we have contemporary scholars as well, or late scholars. You know, Hatcher last Kalani Ahmed shackle Allah Daniel ajmeri. So you have to you know, take you know, their work and incorporate it into how you judge the head if you cannot just call it a hadith like that. So I will take inshallah the explanation from everywhere I can find it from Masada and as you know and Gemma
and come to you inshallah unexplained,
to force you to come in. So, some of the headings are translated, the other headings are not translated, you know, it one is totally taught motivates you to come so that you can shala write the translation of the Hadith. And the other one is that I wanted to provide it to you and give it to you as soon as possible. So I didn't want to rush the translation, because you can easily make mistakes when you are translating the Hadith of the Prophet solipsism so I said, Let's leave it the way it is. And I will provide the translation for the ones that are not available when we meet the admin does. And I can share it with you in written form, and I can forward it to someone and they
can just share it with everybody electronically. Zack,
do you have anything else?
It doesn't seem like we have anything else. I'll be available afterwards and shall if you want to ask me something in private was Hello Hello. So panic alone will be handed a shadow law.
