Grant this order and forgive our sins mean

00:01:42--> 00:01:48

and how did you learn here on VLAN? I mean 100 Kathy Rhonda, even Obama can feel so the Hadeeth of today

00:01:49--> 00:02:13

is really something that we need to keep in mind and inshallah we will derive from it. A principle that works for everything in sha Allah, you will see what I mean in sha Allah shortly. This Hadith is narrated by Al Bukhari, where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, layer hum Allahu mundare humbleness.

00:02:14--> 00:02:23

He said so the law it was in them Allah is not merciful with or will not be merciful with one who is not merciful with people.

00:02:25--> 00:02:32

Yet Yanni Allah xojo is not going to be merciful with someone if that person is not merciful with people.

00:02:33--> 00:02:51

A very simple and short Hadith from Rasul Allah is Allah allow it he was sin them and if in this narration it says it in the negative he is not if you are not there's another Heidi from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that is very famous that also says in the positive

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

sense sense

00:02:54--> 00:03:14

it'll have woman feel ugly or how can men be summed up Be merciful with those on earth and the one above the heavens will be merciful with you? It's the same heady it's the same heady it in the first one it's in the negative he's not if you're not this one, it's positive he is if you are, but it's basically the same thing.

00:03:15--> 00:03:35

What is this heady thesis? Is what is Eliza did one from us now one of the names of Allah as of then that we repeat the most. If I ask you, after the name of Allah zildjian which is Allah, which is the most repeated Name of Allah zoji What is the next name that we repeat most often?

00:03:36--> 00:03:41

What is the one that comes often? Most often and it's always an art term?

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

It is a ramen ramen.

00:03:45--> 00:04:05

Ramen or Rahim because we always say Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. So after Allah zoldan before we read every surah of the Quran, while also we do other things also, right after Allah comes on Rahman Rahim to tell you that the ram of Allah azza wa jal is one of the most special attributes of his

00:04:06--> 00:04:12

and the DNA and the strongest attributes of his it is stronger than his attribute of anger.

00:04:13--> 00:04:59

That attributes if at all Rama of Allah azza wa jal is stronger than the attribute of anger. So a lot of us have had to only imagine a loss in terms of being angry. But we say that lots of Jenna said to his prophets, Allah, Allah, Allah, you earlier said that a lot of surgeon has written in a book that is with him, I get a break. That is right up there in naramata is about what will be my rough map proceeds my anger supersedes my anger comes before my anger. So one of the strongest clearest attributes of Allah Zoda is the attribute of Rama and Allah azza wa jal created us for Rama and he wants to be merciful with us. That's why he subpanel

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

Data give us something like the month of Ramadan if you think about it, why give something like the month of Ramadan is it is like and to Allah belongs that the best of examples. Imagine somebody who wants to sell you something who wants to offer your service. So he gives you a great discount on it. He says you know, regular times, this is such a such a price, but I really want to give this to you. You have a 50% discount, 70% discount, 90% discount. I just want you to buy this. in Ramadan, we have the greatest discount, if we could call it right. It's just a figure of speech we have the greatest discount on the mercy of Allah xojo it is given Allah wants to give it to us the gates of

00:05:45--> 00:06:28

jinn are open. Allah azza wa jal looks at your sins and if you just repent from that Allah forgives it. It does not matter if you just think about it, it does not matter. And that should just panel up, push you to love him. subhanho wa Taala It doesn't matter how bad you were, how terrible the things you did were, how terrible the things you said about Allah azza wa jal or it does not matter. If you just say Allah forgive me and it's your sincere Allah forgives him. we human beings, we don't operate like that a person. You could say something about a person and they will never talk to you for the rest of their lives. They will never forgive you. The capacity of humanity to forgive and be

00:06:28--> 00:06:59

merciful is not like Alonzo did a lie. It does not matter. You've lived in 99 years. And this is not an excuse to delay repentance. Eliza only knows if we could live until we can gain repentance. But as an example, you could live 90 years doing the most terrible things yet Subhanallah you always have Allah in your heart and at the end of your life last six months. You just repent and ask Allah for forgiveness sincerely and what happens Allah forgives all of this. It says if the past 90 years did not exist,

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

that is extreme Rama that is intense for him from Allah xuejun. And Allah wants to be merciful with his servants and that's why he says, Come to me out forgive come to me, just ask me and I will give you and He gives you an awful lot to free you from hellfire. Ramadan is the season of forgiveness. And it's just highlights the Lamb of Allah zoldan Okay, if this is firming our hearts that Allah so did is merciful. The next point to follow is, what is the thing that could stop the Rama of Allah zodion from descending from us receiving it.

00:07:35--> 00:07:43

One thing that does that clearly according to this hadith is that if we behave without mercy,

00:07:44--> 00:08:01

if we turn to people and we are cruel and unjust with them, devoid of mercy is there is a reason for us to miss out on the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah, if you think about this Hadith, that Hadith is also a mercy of Allah zewde

00:08:03--> 00:08:24

because Allah azzawajal even if you don't feel like being merciful, Allah azzawajal forces you to be merciful by saying what you want my mercy How could you receive it without being merciful with other people. So the mercy needs to extend propagate. So Allah isodiol in a sense, just like a, like we do with with a

00:08:26--> 00:08:46

stubborn child, you don't want to eat this, okay? You're not going to get what you want until you eat this, why to force you to do what is good for you, and good for your neighbors and family and spouse and children. Parents. So a lot has to do the same what you have to be merciful with people. When you look at your parents treat them with mercy,

00:08:47--> 00:09:30

living with them and they're elderly, and they're getting you know, Subhanallah very easily irritated or very impatient. You still have to be merciful with them with your spouse, mercy with your children, they can annoy you so many times, get on your nerves still merciful with them. All my prayers are this and they're out of touch out of the out of this. No, you still have to be merciful with them. merciful kind with your neighbor with people in the masjid with Muslims and non Muslims in the grocery store on the street. Wherever you go at work. You need to be merciful with people only through being merciful will allow us that will give you that mercy and that's why in the

00:09:30--> 00:09:41

Haditha recorded he says Allah is now going to be going to be merciful with people if they are not being merciful with others. So now in the month of Ramadan when we are saying that Allah forgive us

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

yeah, Allah sent our mercy Your mercy to us. Yeah, Eliza did allow us into general pleading with Allah will give us and give us and give us but we are now willing to give let us then pause and think whether it is our attitude, our behavior that is stopping

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

the mercy of Allah as the the forgiveness of Allah and that should terrify us

00:10:06--> 00:10:30

So Allah is it It also said that it says in the Quran about his his forgiveness well yeah for yes for whoa either to a boon if your Allah Allah come he says forgive and look the other way, don't you want a lot to forgive you and there's an incident with that inshallah we will discuss it later. But Allah ties His forgiveness to your forgiveness. He says you forgive? Don't you want Allah to forgive you?

00:10:31--> 00:10:40

And if the answer is yes, I want a lot to forgive me. He says then one of the causes for all of us forgiveness is for you to forgive. This is going to somebody asked yesterday

00:10:41--> 00:10:49

if someone is you know, hold grudges and it's hard for them to forgive you just concentrate on this if you're asking Allah, Allah forgive me

00:10:51--> 00:11:02

says you don't want you want to learn to forgive you. Why is it so hard for you to forgive? and forgiveness is important to you, then forgive other people, not for their sake.

00:11:03--> 00:11:32

Not for the sake that they necessarily deserve it not for the sake because they are contrite or they deserve. It's not necessarily for that it's basically for the sake of Allah azza wa jal when forgiveness is beneficial. When forgiveness is beneficial, sometimes you forgive people and they abused that forgiveness, sometimes they betray your trust. If a person does not prove himself to be worthy of forgiveness, maybe they don't deserve forgiveness. We're talking about people who deserve forgiveness,

00:11:34--> 00:11:49

who whom forgiveness will reform them, fix them, bring them closer to you and closer to Allah xeljanz. So we say, if you cannot forgive them, how is it that you can ask Allah for forgiveness and your crimes or your sins,

00:11:50--> 00:11:54

before Allah asserted or greater than their sins against you.

00:11:56--> 00:11:59

And more frequent and more serious.

00:12:00--> 00:12:09

And that person would be has done one or two things to upset you. But just count them any of time how many times we have done things to upset a law surgeon and make him angry.

00:12:10--> 00:12:58

So if I can, despite all of this, come to Allah and say, yeah, Allah forgive me and expect forgiveness, I should also be willing with an open heart to give it to other people. And when I'm easily forgiving. When I can be easily merciful, despite that person being merciful or not, I'm giving it for Allah. So when I wake up this morning, before I go to bed, my intent is I'll be merciful with everybody around me, How to Be merciful kind words, kind reactions. Not to being too critical not to being too demanding, not to be insulting, demeaning, degrading, merciful, assisting others, knowing that everybody is suffering. Everybody has weaknesses, everybody wants your help

00:12:58--> 00:13:23

needs your help. When you forgive them, you complete them, you bring them closer to you, and you defeat the shaitaan, who is an intense to separate you and your brother and separate you and your sister. So if you defeat the plot of the shaitaan with mercy, then you've saved your brother and you saved your sister. And you pleased Allah zodion so if you put this insha Allah in front of your in front of our eyes,

00:13:24--> 00:14:11

we want Allah's mercy in Ramadan, why not teach ourselves to be merciful, change our habits and we can be in the law zodion we can stop eating and drinking. difficult but we did. Then I can defeat my habit, I can defeat my personality, I can be more forgiving. I can say I will forgive. I'll be merciful. Whatever I feel the impulse to punish I can say pulled back and be merciful because this is dear and more pleasing to Allah. This is how you treat yourself and discipline yourself to be more merciful being in love and you ask Allah for it. So be merciful with people on earth and rest assured that Allah azza wa jal, you know, you have of course want to be pleasing to Him in other

00:14:11--> 00:14:18

areas as well. But be sure that Allah azza wa jal, right, will be pleased with you.

00:14:19--> 00:14:40

And merciful with you. There is that incident, maybe I'll conclude with this. Where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said there was once a person before you, and he had money and he had to he would loan people. And when someone couldn't pay back his debt, he would forgive them.

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

He would forgive them. And so before his death, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that that person did not do a lot of good things in his life, except this thing. He would loan and forgive loan and forgive saying that perhaps Allah forgive us. Here's what he used to say. Not a lot of good except this

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

Perhaps Allah will forgive us give a loan here they can pay, you're forgiven. Before his death. He tells us children, he says, I haven't done a lot of good things in my life, I did bad things. So when I die, you burn me. And when I burn you after you burn me, you take my ashes, you scatter them, maybe perhaps I can't escape Allah xuejun mean, I won't be resurrected. Meaning that person did not have enough knowledge about Allah. So does he thought maybe that way? Maybe Allah can I bring him back? This is the level of his knowledge. Right? This just tells you about who that person was. So of course, you know Allah, the prophet, Allah Islam says on the Day of Judgment, Allah resurrection,

00:15:42--> 00:15:52

brings him back from ashes that have been scattered everywhere. And then he asks him, what made you do all of this bruun yourself asking children to burn you scatter your ashes and Allah knows.

00:15:53--> 00:15:57

But he said, Is this out of fear of view?

00:15:58--> 00:16:15

Out of fear of view, I was afraid of you. He said, Okay. Did you do anything good in your life, he says nothing except this thing. I used to go on people and then forgive the loan when they can pay allows it and says what to him. We are more worthy of forgiveness than you

00:16:17--> 00:16:21

that we are more forgiving than you are. Go I have forgiven

00:16:23--> 00:17:02

here's what is the major thing that that person did in his life. Again, this is not to advocate hate Bye Bye, guys. I don't pray, don't fast, don't drink whatever you want to eat whatever you want, you just be nice. But this is not to advocate this. This is to say that this person, and maybe many like award feared Allah zoton but for whatever reason, they couldn't do a lot of good things, but they were good with people. For Allah sake. Not to say that it be said that they are generous for Allah sake. Their forgiveness of others, brought them on loss, forgiveness. So let's insha Allah, you know, get ourselves ready to receive the forgiveness of Allah by being merciful and forgiving. And

00:17:02--> 00:17:15

as the prophets of Allah He was in them said, you will feel this Mercy of Allah, just be merciful with others kind, nice, easygoing with others, not too demanding. And Allah will be the same with you, and you will see this evening.

00:17:17--> 00:17:17


00:17:19--> 00:18:06

it says here in sha Allah, so I'll answer this question this, I just want to revisit a question that I answered yesterday. So a brother wrote to me asked, asking me to clarify an answer to a question that I answered yesterday with where somebody asked, If I want to seek Islam, Islamic knowledge, pursue the learning, I mean, the learning and teaching of Islam. But there are a lot of innovations around what is the best path? And part of the answer that I said is that seek someone that you trust and ask them and they will guide you in sha Allah to the best books, the best path, the best scholars to take from? What I needed to clarify, and I did not yesterday is how do you develop trust

00:18:06--> 00:18:23

for someone that you could ask them? That's the thing that was missing. And the brother, you know, reminded me what is the thing that was missing is? How do you decide? So what qualifications do they have? Or what is the criteria that they are we should pursue? It's not a popularity.

00:18:24--> 00:18:30

It's not how well they speak. It's not how many people follow them.

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

It's not

00:18:33--> 00:18:37

It's not how great well dressed they are. It's not this, it's not this.

00:18:40--> 00:19:23

The criteria for all of that is do they follow the Quran? And do they follow the Sunnah of the messenger? Salallahu it you and he was sending them? Do they follow the understanding of the Sahaba and those who follow them and the early generations of Muslims meaning are they on the straight path, this is what we mean by it. This is if you trust someone, this is that this is the trust that I mean. So if you're listening to someone, and you find them insha Allah according the Koran, and basing what they say on the Koran, not on reason, or passion, or I think and I like the follow the authentic. So now the messengers a lot he was sent home and they distinguish between what is

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

authentic and what is weak, they pray, plays an emphasis on the companions of the Prophet sallallahu was sending them that he respects them, esteem them and their way and thinking and basis, his understanding of the on on sooner on the early generation of Muslims. How did the Sahaba understand the Quran and interpret it? How did the Sahaba understand the sooner and interpreted what was their belief? What were their practices and it is the primary way that we should practice Islam The only way that we should practice this enough, if that is the person right, then that is the person that you should trust.

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

That is the person that you seek and you will see them insha Allah in their speech in their lectures basing what they say on Allah said his prophet said Abubakar Omar said it best said it with Omar said and then when it comes to the Quran ignore others which I have pous so it's all based on narration and tradition.

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

So this is the person so it's not simply popularity, it's not simply

00:20:26--> 00:20:47

he has a lot of followers or he you know explains a 12 or I just like to listen to him, there are things that are deeper much deeper than all of that. So in sha Allah I mean, because I can be specific and say this person and that person this group and that group, you can you know, highlight some books so I mean, when you think about the Quran,

00:20:50--> 00:20:57

def CW Kathy if you want to read write the CEO of Nokia theater sera Sadie, these are English.

00:20:59--> 00:21:09

If you're talking about this soon Now, of course Sahil Bukhari Sahih Muslim and commentary on them real to slowly hand something that are easy books, the rest of the books of the sooner

00:21:10--> 00:21:46

books biography by biographical books of biography of the prophets a lot, he was still in the biography with the early seller, reading these kind of books, publications by devil Salaam iph. Also, what our corner publishes, these are books in sha Allah that I recommend and from their names from these titles. In sha Allah, you'll be able to derive who to follow and who to avoid who emphasizes sooner who may have mixed their Islam would be out but as to avoid inshallah. So if you follow these publications, the authors in these publications and Shall I hope it the matter will be clear.

00:21:48--> 00:22:29

There's an academy online, I don't know if they do English, I think they do. I know that they have an Arabic program, Zed Academy, this is by chef Luna Jett, he, he's kind of behind that effort, I know that they have an Arabic program, they may have an English program as well, if you want something more structured, check that out. Maybe that is something insha Allah that would kind of give you a path by which you develop one course and it helped me you know, developing a one course and then you taking the next and the next on the next structure, pursuit of knowledge in sha Allah, so it's not chaotic. And with that, insha Allah you'll have a, a better understanding and sha Allah

00:22:29--> 00:22:40

of how to a more and a more basic understanding maybe of Islam, well lo Allah, check it out. If they have something in English a program in English, let me know if not Also, please let me know.

00:22:42--> 00:23:18

Fear inshallah. So that's what I wanted to say about that. We will go and shall la dress questions for today. So the first one is that if you bought out someone because of some reasons, and for your own good, does that mean you're not merciful to that person. So boy, cutting some fun is allowed or disallowed based on the reasons and who the person is. You don't want to boycott your parents unless they're really really harmful, really toxic. Okay, only in very, very limited circumstances, relatives, you don't boycott relatives unless they're really harmful. So here's the thing, you boycott someone either to teach them a lesson.

00:23:20--> 00:23:24

Or to stop and protect yourself from their harm.

00:23:25--> 00:24:07

And boycotting someone usually that is the last resort. It comes at the end of what attempts and repeated attempts of advice, then advice and then advice and maybe creating some distant distance, not complete boycott, but some distance. So we first should pursue that so so and so is harmful. Let's say for instance, the gossip, the insult, they spy on you, if they come to your house, they will in a stupor around, you don't want such a person or if you keep their company, they're inviting you to sin, you don't want this. So advice first, give them advice, and then advice and then advice. If they don't repent, if they don't stop. If they don't recognize their mistake, then the next thing

00:24:07--> 00:24:49

is greater distance, so that you limit the extent of the evil that they can bring on you and your family. And check maybe that is enough. By that, I mean for instance, instead of them visiting you at home, you visit them, instead of them visiting you or you visiting them, you just call them you meet outside, you decrease the frequency of visitation or conversations to rather than once a week to once every two weeks or three weeks or a month. So it's not a complete boycott. You reach a level of complete boycott where that person is completely harmful, every time completely harmful. And there's no way to stop that harm except by completely avoiding them I'm not going to receive their

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

calls or never call them

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

right. I'm never going to see Salaam to them. That's what I mean by boycotting someone I'm not going to even see so down to them or I will not even see something

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

I'm back. That is what we mean by boycotting someone. So maybe greater distance insha Allah is a level that could work for a lot of us. But yes, you can boycott someone completely, for a good reason, a religious reason, not worldly reason, a religious reason. And that will not negate mercy.

00:25:19--> 00:25:46

Because the prophets a lot he was in them himself would boycott people for their own benefit, or the benefit of Muslims. And he's the most merciful. So if there is a good ground for boycotting someone, then you can boycott them in sha Allah, but you just emphasize it's the last resort, and it has to be religious reasons. And it should be administered like medicine, only as much as and when needed. When it's not needed anymore. You don't wake up that person anymore, we'll learn

00:25:48--> 00:26:04

how to handle or a punishing teenager children that always replied very badly back to parents is silent punishment merciful, because I worry if we keep talking that it will create more sense to them, you can discipline insha Allah to them, you can discipline them by not talking to them for a while.

00:26:05--> 00:26:19

Right, you can discipline with them, because you're still continuing to be merciful with them by feeding them by giving them shelter and clothing and taking care of them when they are sick. But you showing them by not talking to them, which he called the silent treatment.

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

But I mean, we just want I want insha Allah, you know that silent treatment not to extend more than a day.

00:26:27--> 00:26:44

Okay, not to extend more than a day. So make it clear that for a period of 24 hours or less, that you're not talking to them, that what they've done is really bad. And then at the end of it, you go and you talk to them, and you explain to them why that had happened.

00:26:45--> 00:27:09

And you tell them that what they've done was seriously wrong, and it should not repeat. And it will have consequences. And there should be insha Allah more serious consequences, then you're not talking to them. Because after some time, if you just give them keep giving them just simply that silent treatment repeatedly, just if that will double their sensitivities to that punishment.

00:27:11--> 00:27:47

If they're not going to take it seriously, find my mother is not going to talk to me for a couple of days. I can handle that for three days, or she did that so many times before I don't care, especially as teenagers. So there has to be more serious consequences. Like what you're not going to get these privileges. allowances, no time on the phone, no time on line, no, you have to do more work at home, there has to be really more serious consequences. This has to start early before they've reached that age. But if you find them doing that, you have to take away a lot more of their privileges a lot more than just simply I'm not going to talk to you. Because that may not matter to

00:27:47--> 00:28:00

a lot of them. But if you just want to signal that I'm so unhappy, and especially with inshallah, with kids who are really close to you, yeah, give them that. But don't let it come to more than 24 hours. Right. That's my advice.

00:28:01--> 00:28:14

If we happen to encounter a blind person walking, is it permitted to help him even if he is not our maharam? Since we need to hold him for assistance? If it reaches the level of necessity? Yes, absolutely.

00:28:15--> 00:28:58

Absolutely. Right. So if it reaches a level of necessity, that you have to grab someone to save them from falling into a hole, a ditch, being hit by a bus, and you got to hold them, and they're not your maharam, but you got to hold them. Yeah, absolutely. Because this takes precedence. saving their life and saving them from art takes precedence over the harm of touching someone who's not your model. So yes, you can ensure a diploma in Islamic studies by Islamic online university under the Dr. Bill Phillips for free in sha Allah Baraka law he gets an English I know that it's an English I know it's available I know that if they have some free courses, I'm always unsure about it

00:28:58--> 00:29:12

being free for the entire diploma. But if it is free for the entire diploma then Alhamdulillah like a lot of people just haven't Well Hello Sister for sharing this. So that is a free thing under Dr. Phillips that this system has shipped but a lot of people

00:29:13--> 00:29:24

quit question about the article for a woman and especially a woman who is living alone and doing it and out. In and out of work. Can she do a night three days or more?

00:29:25--> 00:29:44

Okay, so a woman just like men, they can do ethica in the masjid. Okay, women just like men they can do I think if in the masjid. As long of course as the masjid is a safe environment right as long as the administration because I know that some

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

Masjid allow artica for Women other messages do not so you check with your messages regulations in your city to see if that is allowed for a woman or not. So that's just a side note. But islamically in the Shetty out women are allowed to make actigraph in their message

00:30:00--> 00:30:20

as men are allowed to make ethical in domestic again, we said before, there's no ethical at home. I think F is only technically in the masjid, you're allowed male and female to do ethical for one day. So that's what the sister is asking to do, I think out for a night, three days or more you can I do do I think are for a whole day 24 hours.

00:30:21--> 00:30:26

You can do with your ticket for two days, three days, four days, 10 days, it's up to you.

00:30:27--> 00:30:36

So the minimum we say for a ticket is one day. According to some other scholars, you can do it together for part of the day.

00:30:37--> 00:31:18

Others would say no, your actigraph is only for what 24 hours, you come in, you know before method, and you leave by by the other method that is just one day. But a lot of if we take the opinion of the other people, especially that you specify and you say that you're busy in and out of work, you have other obligations. But let's suppose for instance, you have the opportunity to do a decal for just one night, in the masjid. You're free, not the day, but then we say hamdulillah according to some scholars, they allow it go ahead and show Go ahead. So nothing to stop that insha Allah I mean, even if according to the other scholars, it's not technically it gap.

00:31:19--> 00:31:30

You're still doing what you're still sitting in the masjid, concentrating, doing more about that likely doing more a better and that is all beneficial. And according to other scholars the quality Ghafoor part of the day.

00:31:31--> 00:31:39

So insha Allah go ahead and proceed in Sharla there's nothing nothing to stop you from that. And we ask Allah to accept from you inshallah.

00:31:42--> 00:32:16

So, yes, that's the thing, since none of the mysteries are closed, then we do eddakath at home. So we said now, it's because there's no decaf at home. I think it is really in the masjid, the profits a lot he was in them and his wives did never did it never did that he kept in the mystery when the Prophet is also the majority calf or make up for an ethical if he would do it in the masjid. So it tells us that the gap is only in the mystery. Now, here are two things, if you had an intention of doing it in the masjid, but circumstances stopped you. Allah writes it for you as if you have done it.

00:32:18--> 00:33:05

Right. So if you had that intention, but it circumstances stopped you, you had the Nia, but you couldn't because of what is happening outside, it is written for you as if you have done it. So that's one. So this is a relief and handling honorable anime, because and that's the beauty of having a good intention. The second thing here is that I cannot do it calf at home. But as I said previously, we can replicate the conditions of ethica to get the benefits of Attica even though it's not getting technically called an ethical. So in my house, I have almost Sunda designate an area a rule or a corner tone that you call a masala msgid a whole Masjid

00:33:07--> 00:33:30

that could be your masala is your muscle. Now within one the 10 come then less than nights of Ramadan come try to send more time. Without me I'm not we can impose on ourselves and same restrictions of ethic at home. But try to spend more time in that area praying and making Vic and reading Pura.

00:33:32--> 00:33:42

By that inshallah you focus more concentration, you more focus, more dedication, and a better and more devotion to Allah is that so we're trying to replicate the effect of ethics

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

without calling it ethical.

00:33:46--> 00:33:54

So that's insha Allah the best that we can recommend, right in light of the circumstances that we're in. So sit in that muscle that read like he would do in domestic recall.

00:33:56--> 00:34:06

Do they cover last pre more soonest then read hold on again, and so on and so on and so on. But if you if you sell me, I need to go and cook. Yeah, go ahead and cook you're not in Attica?

00:34:08--> 00:34:45

Does that invalidate my ethical, this is not ethical. But we have to do you know what they were in more of your time and concentrating in one location. That's it. I need to go and cook and feed my children go ahead that takes priority. Now they need to eat. I need to go and help someone go ahead and do Don't hesitate because that takes priority. Why? Because this is not ethical. So the restrictions of ethnographic don't apply to what you're doing at home. hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. So I think hamdulillah lahsa have given us a lot of ease a lot of NEMA, that when something closes another thing opens so May Allah azza wa jal always and always and repeat and

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

continuously May Allah give us the best of intention so that we always have that desire to do good so even when we cannot do it, Eliza writes it as if we have done it. So yeah, Allah but I mean, we asked you to give us the best of intentions.

00:35:00--> 00:35:37
