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

Alaikum Malema may info now and fanomena I limped in I was in any manner but Al Amin,

00:00:07 --> 00:00:13

Ullman and the Silikal who took our father in law Minister locally philosophy lady me well ml

00:00:14 --> 00:00:17

also look Allahumma tofield ka Lena mela Vimana alum

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

where whereas Allah Zoji la hamara Amin and this is the beginning in the first lecture in a journey

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

with a wonderful and exceptional book by ignore claim, Rahim Allah.

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

And we will talk about the book and the book is a dealt with the disease and the cure.

00:00:43 --> 00:00:47

And it's a journey that we ask Allah azza wa jal to help us with

00:00:48 --> 00:01:03

as he helped us begin it to help us conclude it. And in the intervening time to help us absorb what we are learning from it and be able be Nila as well to first benefit ourselves and then benefit others with what we know.

00:01:05 --> 00:01:52

So first in sha Allah will Allah mean we're gonna talk about ignorance, I am a little bit and then we will talk about the book and then we will talk about what we'll be doing. And then start with Allah azza wa jal, a segment of the book today in sha Allah, Allah, Allah Allah me, of course, if no claim as they would say in Arabic, linear unitary, if you don't need to introduce someone, as if no claim might. It's like what new things would you add, but there's always a new thing, or there's always a good reminder. So no claim, Rahim Allah, I mean, he was born in the year 691. And lived until the year 751.

00:01:53 --> 00:01:58

So 60 years, that's how long he lived Rahmatullahi Lee.

00:01:59 --> 00:02:09

And in that time, most of the time he spent it in Damascus, he traveled here in there.

00:02:11 --> 00:02:15

But Damascus was at that time, so rich with scholars

00:02:16 --> 00:02:28

that unlike previous times, he didn't really need to travel much in order to acquire knowledge. Because when you travel, you travel for the sake of the scholars who would be scattered here and there.

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

But there were times in places in Islamic history, Baghdad, right would be another instance, where it would be so rich that even if you just stayed in Baghdad, you would get all the scholars that you need. And here if you just stayed in Damascus, you would get most or all of the scholars that you need, you know, to the extent that you may not need to travel.

00:02:55 --> 00:02:57

So he had

00:02:58 --> 00:03:01

a lot of scholars Rahmatullah Ali,

00:03:02 --> 00:03:22

and among them is a half ago Mizzy he's a very famous scholar in Hadith among others. The name is Shiva will Arbor but the most distinct and influential scholar that changed his life was of course no other than even though Tamia Rahim Allah

00:03:23 --> 00:03:28

so if no Tamia is born, the year 661

00:03:29 --> 00:03:37

dies in the year 728. So he's 30 years older than ignore claim right.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:58

And ignore claim stayed as a student as a disciple of IGNOU Tamia Rahim Allah approximately 10 years from the era 712 to 728. And then after he lived about 23 years after the death of IGNOU, Team era himolla

00:04:00 --> 00:04:53

So, he acquired a lot and then after he lived more than 20 years after, you know teaching and writing and what have you, and among his students, notable students ignore Roger humbly. So, he studied under ignore claim, even look at here, you know, even look at the right and ignore Abdulhadi See, these are notable scholars, right. And so, you notice that even new Tamia Rahimullah and then what comes out of the blue Tamia there is an excellence and an abundance of distinguished scholars and that is wallow alum because of the baraka, we assume, of the class and Jihad and also following the evidence. And what is it that distinguishes let's talk here about ignore claim.

00:04:55 --> 00:04:59

Now, if Bill Clinton was on a path in his life, he met IGNOU Tamia. He

00:05:00 --> 00:05:13

influenced him, and he changed that path. And the path that he followed based on the influence of the blue Tamia is to put forward always the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:19

The premacy belongs to the Quran and the Sunnah, not to what people said,

00:05:20 --> 00:05:39

not to tuck lead. And that idea of not to have blind tuck lead. Okay, there there are extreme positions. One is absolute blind, typically to what had been said before, and had been done before even if the evidence points otherwise, it doesn't matter.

00:05:41 --> 00:06:12

There is another one where you disregard everybody who had came come before you thinking that you are the one and only who understands it for the first time. And that is in a very extreme position. You find that today, by to among those who want to liberate themselves of Sharia and Islam, say understand it on my own in ways that nobody else understood it before me. And that, to them is heroic. We say that is false. No one does that in any discipline or field of knowledge, you become a doctor, and you want to negate all

00:06:13 --> 00:06:49

what the doctors have said and done. That's impossible. There are facts and foundations that not cannot be contradicted, right? You want to be an engineer or an architect. And you're going to reject everything that engineers and architects have ever postulated or ever written down. And impossible. That means that you are creating another field of knowledge, but not that field. But you can based on evidence and insight contradicts some of the things that they have said and present your case. So the problem is that in every field of knowledge, when you have people in it, that our superior

00:06:51 --> 00:06:52

people tend to submit to them.

00:06:53 --> 00:06:54

Even philosophers,

00:06:56 --> 00:07:02

which is really ironic, because philosophers are based on what independent thought.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:09

But you will find that when they write, they will always be different to Allah, Akbar,

00:07:10 --> 00:07:49

the grand master or the grand teacher, Aristotle, or a Thani Ibnu. Sina. Right, they will always defer to them. And it's really hard to contradict them. So actually, in every field of knowledge, by the way, science or not, there will always be notables, and it's really hard to contradict and you'll find people simply are subsumed under what that person has said and they become schools right? So psychology will have schools within the School of this and school of that medicine will have the school of the School of that person who is very prominent and then all the followers so even okay him what distinguishes ignore him and that he absorbed some immune anemia Rahim Allah,

00:07:50 --> 00:08:29

which is what is that if the Quran says something? That's that's primary. If the Sunnah, says something the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said something that's primary, even if a lot of people have deviated from it, even if the evidence or even if some notables contradicted it say no, we respect and we excuse what people have said, we have the best of emotions towards them, right. But at the same time, we are not servants or obligated to follow what this person has said.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:31

Right, there is the difference.

00:08:33 --> 00:08:38

Now, if somebody you go to a masjid, and you really love that shaken, love that Imam, he tells you this is halal.

00:08:40 --> 00:09:22

And then you discover that he was wrong. And the evidence overwhelming evidence contradicted your love for that person may push you to follow what he is saying simply because you love him or respect him. And you will may move to reinterpret the evidence simply that it would coincide with your own love. So it's hard to oppose your teachers and it's hard to oppose the school that you've come from. But that is what he did. Rahim Allah. So what distinguishes ignore claim is first of all, let's let's call it the first of all, is what we assume is his sincerity. And he's a Buddha.

00:09:23 --> 00:10:00

It is known right when you read what people had said about him, how much he remembers Allah azza wa jal vicar of Allah each day, how much he prays, how much he fasts, his salah, his trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. So he's not simply the person who's writing theoretically about all of this, because when you just tried it, theoretically, you will not be able to reach the depths that he had reached. There is something about practice and feeling what you're saying that enhances your knowledge and opens doors for it. And that is one thing that we want to keep in mind because you could read whatever you want to read, but it's not

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

gonna penetrate until you actually apply it, and you will not understand it. If not, sometimes it's not going to make sense to you until you actually practice it. And then Allah lifts some of these veils that have surrounded our hearts and then you'll discover, Oh, I understand why this works. And I understand why Allah xodus really should be the dearest thing to our hearts. If I tell you today and I tell myself, we should love Allah more than anything else. Then you go home and I go home and I find that I love myself more than anything else and I love my kids more than anything else. The statement doesn't make sense because it hasn't been applied. And we have both pushed ourselves to

00:10:39 --> 00:10:53

that we will put the love of Allah Zildjian above everything else, but when you do, then you start realizing why the love of Allah is superior and better and more fulfilling. But before you try it, how are you going to know?

00:10:54 --> 00:11:28

So there is that thing that distinguishes ignore him. The other thing is that he bases like IGNOU Tamia, Rahim Allah and the influence of by the way, IGNOU team and before I forget, is evident on him. So when you read the books of ignore him, you notice he will talk about new Tamia. He also called him he say asked him these questions he has say this was his opinion. And when you notice, the whatever new Tamia said and what it will pay him said, you will see that he is repeating and supporting and expanding on many of the ideas of new Tamia himolla.

00:11:30 --> 00:12:14

But now the question is, does that mean that ignore claim is simply a carbon copy of new Tamia? No, the answer is no. Because ignore claim will explore areas that ignore Tamia did not focus on things that ignored him he did not focus on and vice versa. And there will be areas where if no claim will say no to me or shithole Islam says this, and he favors another opinion. So you can think of someone at that level being simply a devotee of somebody else? No, if he had declared that the Quran and Sunnah are the primary sources, then he cannot let go of that for the sake of his shame, or for the sake of everybody else. But the reason why he agrees so much with him is why?

00:12:15 --> 00:12:56

Because he agrees, he looked at the evidence and says, Yes, I agree with this. And I agree with this. And I agree with that. And he supports it. And of course, it's hard also to underestimate the influence of a teacher like even Potamia like anyone, if you're a really good teacher, really influential, really knowledgeable and you have a student, the student will begin to copy you. Right. Right. The only some of this, the scholars have said the shape of North I mean, he said some of us because he studied with a sheaf of Sadie he said some of the students would walk like him even how we should have said he would walk he says they will walk like him. Because it's natural for you to

00:12:56 --> 00:13:05

absorb that from your shape, there is add up. But there's also kind of natural, whether you call it equilibrium where something there just transfer it transfers here.

00:13:06 --> 00:13:33

So he's not a carbon copy with no Tamia and that I hope, insha Allah is clear. So what distinguishes him here in when it comes to issues of Arcada issues of fit, issues of Su Luke? Purification of the heart? How do you walk on a path to Allah azza wa jal, which is the topic of this book? How do you walk on a path to Allah azza wa jal l was so Luke Oh at Ischia.

00:13:34 --> 00:13:36

He bases it on the Quran and Sunnah.

00:13:37 --> 00:13:39

And that is fundamental.

00:13:40 --> 00:13:58

And you may not realize how fundamental that is. But then ask yourself How could a person know the human soul and its limits? What works for it and what doesn't? What pollutes it and what purifies it? If not through the Quran and Sunnah.

00:14:00 --> 00:14:03

That is, if your sources are contaminated,

00:14:04 --> 00:14:12

right, if you depend on mysticism, which is not coming from the Quran and Sunnah, but it's coming either from external sources,

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

or it's coming from your own experience and thoughts, right?

00:14:19 --> 00:14:31

How are you going to know right and wrong when it comes to I have a problem? How do I fix it? How do you know how to fix it? How do you know that that's a problem? The parameters are not there.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:55

So even today, if you're interested in popular psychology, interested in self help books, self development, coaching, all of this, what unites all of all of these things is what? There is an issue. And that issue is related to

00:14:56 --> 00:15:00

the soul, the self, the human being

00:15:00 --> 00:15:34

seeing the potential and the problem. And these are the solutions that we are recommending. Work on yourself this way, avoid this, that use this technique, say these things to yourself, wake up early, sleep late, whatever they recommend, drink this, don't drink that. All of this is presented to the public, including Muslims, right? And you will find a lot of coaches and experts and not so experts giving you a lot of advice on social media, popular books, this is an industry

00:15:35 --> 00:15:40

play if the question that you ask yourself that if you, you who receives it,

00:15:41 --> 00:15:52

or the person who produces it, if you're not basing it on the book of Allah azza wa jal, you're not basing it on a solid understanding of Hadith.

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

And a deep understanding of the Sharia. How could you give advice

00:15:59 --> 00:16:45

and I don't mean here, a decorative right edition of the Quran and Sunnah. I don't mean that I need from the foundations. Right? From the very foundation, where you understand this is right, and this is wrong. This is what the self is. These are its aspirations. This is what works for it. And this doesn't. And I know I'm being general, right. But I want you to understand that the best self help book, The best advice when it comes to development, whatever goals you want to have, whatever problems that you want to fix, if it doesn't pass through the Quran and through those through the Sunnah. And then through someone, like ignore him, then you don't know what you're getting. And you

00:16:45 --> 00:17:06

don't know what you're talking about. That is if you're someone who's doing psychology, right? Okay, professionally or you know, you dabble into it. If you're a person who's into self help books you don't know about ignore KVM then you don't know what you're talking about. Because that other side will give you insights based on what

00:17:07 --> 00:17:24

base based on human experiments based on opinions based on what so and so has said. And you abandon what the Quran said. You abandon what the Sunnah said, you abandon what someone like no claim said, and you will just want to base it on all of that you're on a very clear error.

00:17:26 --> 00:17:41

So you want to ground yourself in this tradition. And so part of what we want to do be in Allah azza wa jal is understand this book to understand ourselves, and understand this book so that we would understand how to fix ourselves.

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

So let's talk about the book a little bit. And then let's talk about what we want to get out of the book.

00:17:50 --> 00:17:59

So the book is simply you could think of it as a big fatwah one big fatwah

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

write the entire book write one big festival, he receives a question Rahima Hola, hon, will read the question. And based on it, he starts writing to tell the person about the danger of sins, tell the person about how you could fix those sins, that other person about the steps of the shaytaan and how the shaytaan deceives you to tell the person about the danger of excessive love, which is a shame and so on and so on. So So he gives a comprehensive answer to a question that is very good, but is left vague.

00:18:34 --> 00:18:37

And because of that he covered a lot of bases.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:43

So that's what the book is about. As simple as that.

00:18:44 --> 00:19:18

It'll adapt or widower. That's by the way Abdul Qayyum Allahu Allah did not give that title to the book because they said in the manuscripts, such a title does not exist, but scholars later started to call it a dealt with the the disease and the cure some of COVID eligible care filaments, an antidote Shafi the sufficient answer for the one who was asking for their healing medicine, right. That's another title. But the more popular title is Adele overdosed the medicine or that disease and the cure. So this is the disease and this is how you fix it.

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

And through it, you want to understand what this is what we want to do with the book.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:49

What I recommend is that you have a copy of it, right? You either purchase it, and it's available in Arabic, and it's available in English, or in any other language that you read. But you purchase a copy or you get a copy. And you read as we read, and you take notes and you think about it, in order to do two things. One, you want to learn something from it.

00:19:51 --> 00:19:59

You yourself and you will understand based on the question, what is it that we want to learn from it but you want to learn something from it, so that you would

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

change that Swan

00:20:02 --> 00:20:44

and also what I hope is that some of you will learn enough of it to be able to teach it, not necessarily sit in the Halacha and teach it but start with those who are around you will need that from you, your brother and your sister and your wife and your kids and your parents, they will need that from you. So you will be able to transmit that to you to them. So it's not simply I'll take it and I'll keep it with me. Now I'll take it. And I'll let as many people around me know. So write it down, take those notes, teach it to them, write it, I write it and share it on social media, whatever you want to do, but try to convey and spread that will make it beneficial and it will stick

00:20:44 --> 00:21:09

and you'll understand you can definitely just come and listen and leave but I'm looking for a kind of a commitment that is going to stay that will keep this information and will help you benefit. So take notes even if you're not planning on buying the book take notes and go back and read them and take something out of it each day each night that will help you in the lawsuit

00:21:11 --> 00:21:12


00:21:13 --> 00:21:15

let's begin

00:21:23 --> 00:21:24

and this is the question

00:21:26 --> 00:21:29

and by the way, I forgot to mention his name sorry.

00:21:30 --> 00:21:32

So that you'd understand it.

00:21:33 --> 00:21:36

What's the name of the shake right the full name

00:21:41 --> 00:22:12

so his shamsudeen shamsudeen is is a title lockup of what Abdullah? That's his Kunia Mohammed even though a VBAC even though a yo bignault Sadness arises Surah a de Mishti so he's you understand that he's from where or resides where the machine so he's dimished T. l marovo? biblica Emil Josie Yeah, so ignore paymill Josie yeah that's that's how he's known ignore email Josie what is even okay email Josias so that you know you would understand it. And Josie is a school

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

and it's a humbly school that was established by the son of YBNL Josie Rahim Allah signal Josie is a great temporary scholar. Right? So it will help her and others that's what that he wrote that so he's a hamburger scholar. His son establishes a school that is a humbly school. The father of ignore paymill Josie was the principal or the caretaker of the school. So he is what the father of him play you will Jersey you the principal of a jersey you are the caretaker of the Gypsy. Yeah. So Mohammed is the son of that principal of Agenzia right or the caretaker. So you will refer to him as ignore email Josie or or ignore Him the Son of the principal or the son of the caretaker? Right and this

00:22:58 --> 00:23:00

reference to that school, okay.

00:23:01 --> 00:23:02


00:23:03 --> 00:23:46

so he says su era che ho so on and so on. So on that she was asked. Mata Colusa to Lola are in Metro D and all the Allahu Anhu Mm hmm infura Do they need to Lea be Belia walima in eastern Marathi, he said that Allah He dunya Hua Hirata Walker digital had the feeder infc here because I thought he confirmed yesterday that Putin was shipped the thermal hayleigh two feet of al mercado de la kashaya. For him Allah human animal patella wala, who founded Abdi McCann, Abdullah, only a sea of tuna, Julian, that's the question. He said, What would the scholars this team scholars say? May Allah be pleased with all of them, in a man or about a man who was afflicted with an affliction,

00:23:47 --> 00:23:53

tested with an affliction, he knows that as long as it continues, it will ruin his dunya and his Ophira

00:23:54 --> 00:24:18

he's doing he will ruin this life and ruin the next for him. And he used to have a huge striving to push it away, get get rid of it with all the mind that he has, in every possible way. But as he's doing it, he grows more intensely attached to it. So how can he protect himself from it? And how he can how he can? How can he remove it?

00:24:19 --> 00:24:41

You understand now right? is saying that there is this something that he has, which is an affliction. He's trying to run away from it in every possible way. But by doing that he's more intensely attached to it. And if it continues to plague him like this, it will destroy him in the dunya destroy him in the hero. How can I

00:24:42 --> 00:24:59

escape it? For him? Allahumma and Anna Mukta Allah, may Allah have mercy on someone who helps and afflicted, and he caught the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam saying Allah Hafiz O'Neill Abdi Madame Al Abdullah onea Theo McKinnell Abdul Fionna say Allah will continue to aid a servant

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

of his as long as he continues to aid his brother, meaning if you help me, Allah will help you. So please help me so Allah will help you. So this answer is that help.

00:25:13 --> 00:25:39

And if somebody needs counsel, somebody needs advice and you help them with advice maybe that you can get from this book, Allah xojo will also be helping you and be merciful with you. So help is not always monetary, right? Help is not always physical. But in fact, the most precious of help is the help that print saves a person from hellfire saved, save the person from the distress of this life.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:50

Now, let's briefly focus on the question, because I want to say just a couple of things about it. First, they said that hoarseness too early this was

00:25:51 --> 00:26:06

a good question is half of knowledge. hoarseness too early ins will enemy that is if you know how to ask and when to ask, and what to ask. Allah azza wa jal will open doors of knowledge for you.

00:26:08 --> 00:26:31

Sometimes we don't ask. And sometimes we don't know how to ask this person because he asked this question. A book was produced, right? Because he asked this question, he got an answer, far beyond what he had anticipated. But you don't go to a shape and thinking, you know, please, I have this and he writes a book for you.

00:26:32 --> 00:26:44

That doesn't happen. But ignore him had that stamina that he could write. And he could explore and he could explain. So first of all, we need to ask.

00:26:46 --> 00:26:59

Okay, because we ask a lot about the dunya, by the way, right? What is the cheapest this? What is the greatest deal? How can get a job? How can I get admitted to college? How, how, how, and you should ask

00:27:00 --> 00:27:04

what benefits you have our benefits you but we don't ask about religion?

00:27:05 --> 00:27:06

Unless we're in trouble.

00:27:07 --> 00:27:13

I have a problem with my wife. What do I do? Or you didn't ask before? How I could avoid this problem?

00:27:14 --> 00:27:26

My son is not listening to me. How old is he? He's a teenager? Well, you didn't ask a teenager. He didn't ask before how to raise him. Why did you wait so long? So we don't ask religiously? Good questions.

00:27:27 --> 00:27:54

So if you want Allah azza wa jal to teach you, you have to be concerned, you have to be worried. And that's the reason why we don't ask because we care about the dunya. We don't care about the ACARA this person could have said, I don't care. I'll just do whatever. But he understood that this is detrimental. So if we really our concern is the earth era, then we'll start asking but if all questions are about the dunya then you understand what we are worried about. So that is an invitation to

00:27:55 --> 00:28:18

be more worried about the earth here and ask more questions about it. Ask more questions about is this right or wrong? Halal and Haram? Is this the best way? Does this agree with the Quran? Does this agree with the hadith is this person right? Is this person wrong? Ask these questions that Allah azza wa jal could bless you. But you sit back and you think everything is fine, you're very meticulous when it comes to the dunya, but not the Akela

00:28:19 --> 00:28:31

then you're not going to get knowledge and you're not going to be saved, and you are going to be plagued. And you will walk up a path of error and mistakes. So ask before a problem and be concerned with the hero.

00:28:32 --> 00:28:44

And the question here also the question or he doesn't mention that affliction of his Is it a worldly affliction or a religious affliction? He doesn't mention right here Belia

00:28:45 --> 00:28:49

an affliction a disaster, a a test.

00:28:51 --> 00:29:07

But you understand also because he said, it will ruin his hereafter and the dunya that this is what type of affliction is it a worldly affliction meaning, physical worldly, affliction only, or a religious affliction?

00:29:08 --> 00:29:09

A religious

00:29:10 --> 00:29:16

because a worldly affliction, meaning simply related to the world does not ruin your hereafter.

00:29:18 --> 00:29:20

Right? It stops.

00:29:21 --> 00:29:42

Once you dead, it stops it's over. You didn't have money, you didn't have healthy once you're dead, it stops. And in fact, a worldly affliction could be the elevation in the hereafter. But because you didn't have all these things, Allah azza wa jal elevates us so high in the hereafter that those who have will envy you.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:46

So we understand that it's not a worldly affliction,

00:29:47 --> 00:29:59

because that is easier and can be dealt with. If you actually imagine this today. Because today the greatest affliction that we have is what not a person losing their Iman. Now we're okay

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

With this is a low person losing his job.

00:30:04 --> 00:30:50

That's the problem losing his house and not minimizing that loss, losing your house and live in the streets. That's difficult. But that is the greatest affliction for us, not somebody losing their Iman, we take it easy, not a person missing one Salah that's easy, not a person not fasting, that's easy, but not losing their job, or not losing their house or not losing their life savings. That's the great disaster. So this person at least he had his priorities, right. That's the thing that is going to ruin my life. And what is that thing? It is religious, something that Allah azza wa jal hates, he can stay away from. So here we are talking about every one of us.

00:30:51 --> 00:31:05

And addiction, whether it's something that a sin that we're implicated in, it's part of our life. And somebody tells you or you tell yourself, Oh, you hear the Quran, this is wrong. And you say, I can't let go of it.

00:31:06 --> 00:31:17

I know it's wrong. I know it's a sin. I know, every time I'm doing it, something is written against me. But you asked me to leave it. I can't. And every time I try to leave it, what happens?

00:31:18 --> 00:31:26

I go back to it. Right? I go back to it. And I try and I go back and I try and I go back.

00:31:27 --> 00:31:29

Or maybe we're not implicated in it.

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

We're not doing it. But our heart is there. And we were afraid that at any moment, I'm going to do this, how do I save myself from it? So this is a duck.

00:31:42 --> 00:31:43

That's the disease.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:46

And it's a disease of the heart

00:31:47 --> 00:31:51

that spreads into the body. And that spreads into the soul.

00:31:52 --> 00:32:02

Whatever disease a soul has anxiety, discomfort, lack of serenity, it goes back to the heart, something is missing.

00:32:03 --> 00:32:24

That's why you said you have to really base it on the Quran and the Sunnah, right? How do you treat anxiety? What were the what is it coming from? How do you Why are you sad all the time? Why are you dissatisfied all the time, and you have the money and you have the house and you have the career, but you still sad and still dissatisfied? What is missing? Right?

00:32:25 --> 00:32:56

So there is something there's a gap, there's an emptiness. And if you don't know Allah azza wa jal, I don't care how many PhDs you have, you're not going to be able to fill that gap. You could numb the pain. You could do that. You could take medicine, just like they give everybody medicine or you're depressed. Here's medicine, because that's the easiest thing. Here's some medicine, take it. And it doesn't help. Right? That's not a long term solution. These are emotions that you have you're a human being.

00:32:57 --> 00:33:05

And you need to deal with these emotions head on. Right to understand yourself and understand your capacity and what is the problem? So

00:33:06 --> 00:33:07

how does he

00:33:09 --> 00:33:09


00:33:11 --> 00:33:12

Rahim Allah.

00:33:13 --> 00:33:56

He says, I'm about who? He said, and I'm not going to translate everything right? So I mean, I'm not gonna read it all in Arabic, and then translate everything right? Because that can take a lot of time. So I'll be selective. Sometimes. I'll translate sometimes I'll read sometimes I'll explain. Sometimes I'll comment sometimes I'll condense right based on what is appropriate will low island. He says that the prophets Allah it was in them said as insightful Buhari Manzil Allah Who dare and Isla Anza Lello, Shiva, Allah azza wa jal did not send down a disease except that he had sent down a cure for it. And he said also Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He says every disease has a cure. So when the

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

medicine hits that disease, he will be cured by the will of Allah as Zoa gel. And he also said that he is Salatu was Salam. Allah did not reveal or descend down a disease, except that he had sent a cure to it. Ali Muhammad Ali Maharajah healer, whom and Jayla whoever knows that knows that. And whoever does not know it does not know it. And the only exception in the Hadith, where he says there's only one thing that does not have cure, how do we also Allah or profitable or what is that only thing that does not have any cure? He says Al haram, old age, meaning death. That's not something that you can cure. You could work on it if you want, but you're not going to be able to

00:34:33 --> 00:34:38

stop people from dying. So that's the only thing but then

00:34:39 --> 00:34:40

everything else.

00:34:41 --> 00:34:58

Everything else has a cure to it. And he said here, we'll have your own words will be one row. Hey, well, Bethany, what do we add to her? And this encompasses the diseases of the heart and the soul and the body and their medicine.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:04

That's the beauty here, because he's giving what he's giving hope

00:35:05 --> 00:35:10

is you're asking me about a disease. I'm telling you that whatever disease descends,

00:35:11 --> 00:35:14

and had been brought down, whether physical or not,

00:35:15 --> 00:35:20

except for that one thing that we talked about, which is death, there's a cure for it.

00:35:22 --> 00:35:23

So on one hand,

00:35:24 --> 00:35:57

every physical illness on Earth today has a medicine to it, that could stop it. Right? And if you don't know it, you simply don't know it. But if you keep researching and Allah allows it to you'll discover it. So it's a possibility, a very distinct possibility that you could find a solution for it. And that gives such scientific inquiry, hope and momentum. Yeah, keep looking. There is something to cure it because the prophets Allah, Allah wa sallam said this, but also and more importantly, that every disease of the heart

00:35:58 --> 00:36:05

and every disease of the soul has a cure, there's a way to fix it. And he also supports this by saying

00:36:06 --> 00:36:07


00:36:08 --> 00:36:54

some of the Sahaba they were traveling, and the CIFAR sobre, La Mina hydro, don't forget Joe, if you say one of Sahaba, who was traveling with them, was hit on the head with a stone and he had an open wound in his head. Fatima, he had a *, right when he slept. So he asked his companions, is it permissible for me to do TM mum, because he has an open wound. And with an open wound, it's very dangerous, right to bathe. So he says, do you understand scat? Do I have an exemption to do to your mum? He says no. Because they are far away from the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said no. As far as we can see, you have no exemption as long as you can bathe. So he did bave as they recommended and

00:36:54 --> 00:36:55

he died.

00:36:56 --> 00:37:37

So when they came to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He said, Qatar Lu who Kucera whom Allah He said, they've killed him. May Allah killed them. If they did not know. Why did they not ask that the cure for ignorance is to ask. That's the part here, which is ignorance is a disease. And you will find yourself that as long as you do not know. You're always perplexed and agitated. You don't know is this right? Am I doing right? Am I doing wrong? Is this good for me? Is it bad for me? Should I not do this? Should I consult monk, whenever you do not know that you're always agitated until you know and when you know, you're comforted? That's what he will you understand the value of the Quran

00:37:37 --> 00:38:06

and Sunnah where he says, This is it. This is right. You don't even have to ask. This is it? You don't need the agony of agitation and looking. But whenever there is something that is missing, when there is ignorance, it produces a lot of anxiety. So the prophets a lot he was sitting them said it was enough for him to do to your mum signal came continuous. He says for Bara, NLJ, Elijah, one that she felt a host to add, is, as he said, la salatu salam that ignorance is a disease.

00:38:08 --> 00:38:20

So in a sense, right? If we assume that all of us are ignorant, and we are, then we have that in us, until we learn, and then that cures us and brings us comfort.

00:38:21 --> 00:38:27

And he said, he subhanho wa Taala said about Quran that it is Shiva, that it's a cure.

00:38:28 --> 00:38:30

So now he's giving him what

00:38:31 --> 00:38:32

first hope.

00:38:33 --> 00:38:41

And now what is the medium or what is the substance that is going to give you that medicine? He says the Quran

00:38:42 --> 00:39:28

he said cool. Holy Lavina Aman who who Dawa she thought he say it is for the believers who the guidance and she found a cure. And he said Well who knows the luminal Quran Hema who was she felt or warahmatu lil mo meanie and he says we reveal from the Quran. What is she thought cure and Rama mercy for the believers? And he says here when in Hoonah Dubai and Elgin sila additivity he says don't understand the idea as to mean that some of the Quran is Shiva and some is not he says no mean is to indicate that everything from the Quran is Shiva. Not some isn't some isn't well known as zero mineral Quran meaning coming from the Quran is Shiva. So Allah azza wa jal tells you in the Quran

00:39:28 --> 00:39:30

about the Quran, that is Shiva

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

says you understand nothing, if you just gonna stop now and not listen to anything after this. You know, where you find your cure, right?

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

And it's not just simply I'll read, but I'll read and I'll understand because Allah is talking to you. Right? You'll read and you understand, if you just read and there's Baraka in it. I'm not gonna say no, no to you there is baraka in it. Whether you know it or not, whether you feel it or not, but imagines the doctor

00:40:00 --> 00:40:01

Giving you medicine and you hold it in your hand.

00:40:04 --> 00:40:21

I got it. I have it in my hand to swallow. It's enough here. So that when you read the Quran, the Quran is what is just circulating around you, your ear doesn't really hear the eye doesn't really understand and comprehend is just circling. But when you understand then you digest.

00:40:22 --> 00:40:28

So that's the shifa. And that's why you may if you say to yourself, I read a read a rereading, there's an effect.

00:40:30 --> 00:40:35

Right? Or someone reads and reads and reads and is a flock, character is not good.

00:40:36 --> 00:40:51

Or I read and read and he does not find that it's, you know, like, tweeting me is is there's there's a gap and the gap is that there's a lack of understanding and contemplation, and giving yourself the opportunity to say Allah is saying this to me, how am I going to react to it?

00:40:52 --> 00:40:53

So he said,

00:40:54 --> 00:41:36

Rahim, Allah, He says, it's a cure of the hearts from the disease, of ignorance and doubt, right? And he said, Allah Zoda did not send from the sky, something that is more healing than the Quran, and not something that more beneficial than the Quran. And that's something that can be more effective in removing pain and disease than the Quran. And if you believe this, you'll understand how valuable it is nothing, no Bible, Old Testament, New Testament, any other sacred book, anything that a psychologist or a guru or a philosopher will write, even if they have millions and millions of views and impress you every time you listen to them, nothing that they will say is better and

00:41:36 --> 00:41:58

more effective than the Quran that you have in your hand. You just need to understand it if you believe this, that the greatest knowledge and the greatest benefit is in the Quran, you will not let go of it. It will be like I can't live without this. How can I? Because without it, I'll feel the distress of that distance from Allah xuejun How can I just like a person who is addicted to become

00:42:01 --> 00:42:26

addicted? Not just you know? Subhanallah I said it 100 times and that's it. No, they can't live Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah Allah Allahu Akbar right suffer luster for Allah for Allah wherever stuck for Allah for Allah for Allah right? They have it they had a recording of a shift when rebels even numbers Rahim Allah, he's sitting and talking to people right? And they asked him questions and he answers in the pauses he'll see beings of homeless about

00:42:27 --> 00:42:30

they asked him a question then he answers this panelist

00:42:32 --> 00:42:47

he doesn't stop addicted when you're addicted to the liquor I asked you to stop this is something's wrong with my heart. Because now you're connected to Allah azza wa jal so if you're if you want to become addicted to the Quran, say I can't live a day without reading

00:42:48 --> 00:42:58

and then if you stop you realize that your heart is in such a it's such a difficult destitute conditioned I alone

00:42:59 --> 00:43:04

right? alone you feel just alone until you read and you feel comforted again.

00:43:05 --> 00:43:11

And he brings here another evidence how the Quran is medicine.

00:43:13 --> 00:43:53

He says it's emphasized Hain Bukhari and Muslim is said a group of companions traveled had done as well hey man, hey lobby first of all, for whom why? So they can buy a group of Arabs, right like a nomadic group of Arabs and first of all, for whom they ask can you host us so they refuse to host them? Because typically right generosity the custom of the Arab is what is that when you find a guest, you host this is the custom, but in this particular instance, they did not do it. Kinda Faludi. Allah say you do that he can hide so their head the head of that

00:43:55 --> 00:43:58

tribe was bitten by a scorpion

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

filtermist who they tried to treat him in every possible way that the could the couldn't. So as a last resort, they said maybe you could ask those visitors maybe they have something that you don't have because if they don't, what's gonna happen to him?

00:44:14 --> 00:44:18

That's it. He's going to die. So they said

00:44:19 --> 00:44:44

our head you know our leader was bitten we tried to save him, nothing is happening. Nothing is happening. Nothing is helping him. Can you help him with anything? So forgot about the one of them he said. In either cases I do Rokia but by Allah Who are we asked you to host us, but you didn't host us. So I will not do it until you promise us to give us something in return. Right?

00:44:45 --> 00:44:51

All of us Allah whom Allah Katya and Minella anime says they agreed that if you'd be able to cure him, we'll give you a flock of sheep.

00:44:53 --> 00:44:59

So the person right to pop up pro made that promise from tilaka yet Hulu La Jolla, CA Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen

00:45:00 --> 00:45:19

He started to read at hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen, which is what Al Fatiha and then spit on him, right or spiddal on him. So to read al Fatiha and spiddal, read al Fatiha and do that. And the person as far as we know, who is receiving this Rukia is not a Muslim. He's not a Muslim.

00:45:21 --> 00:45:46

For getting them a new sheet, Amina your call, when he did that, to him is as if he wouldn't release from bondage, like you. So someone who was really sick, he's like being tied. And then you release him and he stands up. I just we just immediately recovered from it. From tilaka am she wanna be here caliber, and he started to walk without any illness in him, the one who was about to die. So

00:45:48 --> 00:46:04

they said to each other after they received that Flack, he says, let's let's divide the sheep. They said no, until we come to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and ask him about what we did. So they came to LA Salatu was Salam and the Prophet said Well, you did ICA and how to PA How did you know that? It's a rokeya.

00:46:06 --> 00:46:10

Then he said but a sub to Him you will write a Tassimo divide and give me some

00:46:11 --> 00:46:16

and why give me some to confirm that what they did was right. Yeah, and that's Khaled.

00:46:17 --> 00:46:30

But here he says Subhanallah how Allah asserted had guided him because how did he know that it was a rope here but it worked. Right? It worked. As the prophets a lot of you said and based on that hadith, you could use Fatiha as Autopia

00:46:32 --> 00:46:36

high you have evidence solid evidence now that if something anything physical,

00:46:37 --> 00:46:39

below us ask a question only physical.

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


00:46:43 --> 00:47:25

No anything. Anxiety, depression, whatever it is, and I'm not telling you that's the only thing but I'm telling you use it. Okay, on yourself, on your kids, on your spouse on your parents, whatever you whatever hurts, internal or external. Al Fatiha. Everybody knows this. We then Fatiha and use it as a Rukia he says for quite a thorough that they were off you had the dat was Allah. Allah Miyan. He says this medicine cured that illness and removed it to the extent as if it was not there, removed it completely as if it was not there. Well who are US Hello Dawa in what a sorrow and it's the easiest medicine

00:47:27 --> 00:47:44

to administer and to do the easiest medicine you don't need to buy anything you need to need make an appointment doing it you don't even need to be in a waiting room. Right? You don't need any of that. It is there Allah azote it is there. You just read it right? And he says

00:47:45 --> 00:48:04

well I sent it over do and I'm reading this because it's let it sink in right we'll send an update today we are Bill Fatiha. Laura Allah Tatianna, Jeevan Shiva, he says if a person knows how to use al Fatiha in medication, he will see incredible effects that it has incredible effects in bringing a cure.

00:48:06 --> 00:48:16

If you know how to use al Fatiha in medicine, and he says about himself, right. Welcome to the Makita muda data Rini adware on wala doo doo Toby Benoit as

00:48:17 --> 00:48:53

it says I used to be in Mecca keys he spent time in Mecca. And I used to get sick and I don't find medicine or a doctor. Right for going to Allatoona Seville Fatiha so I used to treat myself with the Fatiha for Allah to Athena G burner you see a wonderous effect that it has on me for come to us if we only communicate with him and get sticky LMS so I would prescribe this for anyone who has pain for Canada, theobromine homea or Surya and a lot of them would heal quickly when you when they use that medicine. So he's not only telling you or it was just in the Hadith, he says no in Metka

00:48:54 --> 00:49:42

I used to get sick and makeup then was not like Damascus, Damascus it had doctors, and it had medicine, Mecca, you're on your own. Right. So if you're gonna stay in Mecca, it's a challenge. Not like today it's a challenge. It's still a challenge today, right? Little bit, right? But it's much more challenging then no doctor and no medicine says what's left and Fatiha. So he says I used to treat myself with Al Fatiha whenever something ails me and it goes away. And that is based on a belief in Allah subhanho wa taala. So we want to restore this in all of our medications, physical and non physical. I'm not feeling good today, right? Internally My heart is not right. I'm not

00:49:42 --> 00:49:59

feeling good physically. My body is not right. Where is it fair to hand where's the Quran? My kid is you know complaining about this. And if you know relatives, you tell them about this now that you know it and you probably knew it before, but if not, now you know it and if you did know you remember it. So

00:50:00 --> 00:50:48

prescribe this medicine you don't need much certification to prescribe this. Then he said to him hola as if he is anticipating someone who may say, hey, but I used it and it didn't work. Okay. Then he said, we're lacking Hoonah ammonium but hit the photo Nullah who he says there is something though you need to keep in mind, which is that the Earth car and the idea and the idea that bring on healing while you're kabhi Ha, okay, can eat are used as Rukia in themselves, they are curative, meaning they bring cure, and they are satisfactory. But it requires that the place that is receiving them would be receptive. The place should be receptive.

00:50:51 --> 00:51:36

And that the person who's doing it will forward to whom metal fell in the water theory and the person who's reading it is also strong and dedicated for months at that permit at the Khalifa shifa if healing is postponed, or it doesn't happen, Kana, it was because he's eating either leadoff hitter theory, the person who is administering that medicine is weak, or the place is not receptive. Or there is another obstacle that is stopping it. Stopping that medicine from healing, as this is the case with physical medication. As is the case with physical and the peril is important. If you understand this, you'll understand that right? As the case with physical medication. He says because

00:51:36 --> 00:51:57

physical medication, sometimes they do not work because the place or the nature of the person who's being treated, does not agree with that medication. But or, or he's mentioned another obstacle standing in the middle. But if the nature, one's nature, one's body, takes that medicine fully accepts that medicine fully.

00:51:58 --> 00:52:45

It will be it will heal, and so is the heart. If he accepts the DUA, and the vicar and the Rukia, fully, then they will be healing. But you also need somebody who's who's reading who's also effective, and also who is strong, then that cure will be then that disease will be removed. So you have two things, the person who's reading and the person who's receiving that reading, and both of them have to be in a prime proper condition for the cure to take place. And he says so is is one of the strongest means in pushing away harm and fulfilling your desire. But it may not bring that result. Either because it's weak in itself, that similar he says maybe it's a dua that Allah azza wa

00:52:45 --> 00:53:21

jal does not love. Or because the heart is weak when it's making that dua. And it's not attentive. It's not concentrating, it's not inclined towards Allah azza wa jal, right, so it's distracted, it makes dua, but it's distracted. Yeah, Allah give me give me give, but you're not really in it. You're just repeating the words. So there's no Jim a year, Jimmy is what for the heart to be what collected and dedicated and focused on what it wants to say all of it is there behind what it's wants to say, that is a strong petition. But when the heart is distracted thinking about something else, or does not feel the urgency, then no.

00:53:22 --> 00:53:26

And he says, this is like what? This is like an arrow,

00:53:27 --> 00:54:11

or a bow and arrow where the bow has a string and the string is weak, is not tight. So imagine yourself having that arrow, putting it in that bowl and the string is not tight, will it be able to launch it? No. And if it goes, it will fall in front of you. So he says that's the case. If your DUA you're saying it, but if it's not coming from a strong, self, devoted self, then the DUA that comes out is weak and falls flat. Yes, Allah knows it. Yes, Allah rewards you for the time and the effort, but in terms of it reaching Allah azza wa jal to fulfill what you want from that dua. That's something else. It needs to be strong.

00:54:13 --> 00:54:15

So that's why it's delayed.

00:54:16 --> 00:54:21

And he says, one of the you know, the causes that could stop the DUA from being accepted.

00:54:24 --> 00:54:26

If a person consumes haram,

00:54:27 --> 00:54:28

and what makes dua

00:54:29 --> 00:55:00

or commits injustice, are the hardest polluted with sin. Right? Or Estella Allah flattie was Sir we were late. We were going over to her they had the heart is swimming in heedlessness and waywardness and sin. So it cannot easily connect with Allah azza wa jal, these are reasons for the DUA, to be delayed or not to be as strong. So he said he quotes the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, as he said, are the Allahu and Tomoki inaudible IJA ask Allah make dua

00:55:00 --> 00:55:02

While you are certain of the answer,

00:55:03 --> 00:55:18

while the one Allahu Allah Akbar who do admin called baignoire Philander, he know that Allah does not accept the DUA from a heart that is heedless and distracted. That is when you're making dua, I include that the Earth ca include in that the Rukia.

00:55:19 --> 00:55:26

If your heart is close to Allah azza wa jal, right, like how many of us can read al Fatiha and not see an effect?

00:55:28 --> 00:55:43

That person reads in fatty Han a person who is middle of suffering, he had poison in his body, stand up in walks. What's the difference? The Fattah is the Fatiha. Right. We can learn to read it the best that we can exactly as they used to read it.

00:55:44 --> 00:55:46

Play it what's the difference?

00:55:47 --> 00:55:55

And that person was what? The person who was read up on he was not Muslim. What's the difference? It's the person who read it.

00:55:57 --> 00:56:15

And how close he was to Allah azza wa jal and how much he believed in what he was reading, and how much he believed in what he was asking for. So if you believe that Allah is just gonna give it to you and you'd like that close to him, subhana wa to Allah your DUA is not like a person who doesn't believe that his Dark Matters or will be answered.

00:56:17 --> 00:56:44

Or his distant makes dua but he doesn't feel connected doesn't feel again the urgency the necessity of that acceptance. Yeah, Allah I really want that from you. That's the difference that when the disbelievers make a dua to Allah azza wa jal in a state of helplessness, where they're about to die, the Quran tells you that Allah answers their DUA and he saves him from hardship, the disbelievers.

00:56:45 --> 00:56:56

So if you make dua to Allah azza wa jal, when you have completely surrendered to Him, and you see no other alternative but Him and you put all your trust in Him, that is a very powerful DUA

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

and Taqwa is an essential part of it. Right?

00:57:01 --> 00:57:05

So he says, for her that they were on meaning that

00:57:06 --> 00:57:50

dua is a very useful medicine. Well, I can refer to it can be the heedlessness of the heart, the weakness of the heart takes away its power, and so is also eating the Haram takes away its power. The power of dua, engaging in Haram saps your dog's energy because it saps you of energy takes your energy away. He says as it was reported in Sahih, Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said a Yohannes oh people in Allahu Allah, Allah is good. Right and he only accepts what is good. And Allah azza wa jal commanded the Prophets the messengers and the prophets school Luminati abattoir Mundo sila eat what is good from what is good and do righteousness. And he commanded the

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

believers to do the same. Yeah, you heard ADINA, I'm a new cool woman of the year but eat what is good, what is halal, don't eat the haram. Only the halal.

00:57:59 --> 00:58:07

Then he said for Medaka or Raja will tell you to suffer. Then he gave an example at his Salatu was Salam of a man who travels a lengthy travel.

00:58:08 --> 00:58:16

I shatta Akbar Right. Right. unkempt. Right. Full of sand and dust.

00:58:17 --> 00:58:46

Yeah, will do a they heal a sinner extending his hands to the sky. Right. You're a br br br Yeah, Hola. Hola. Hola. Right. is asking out of desperation. Right? You're a BR Well, not Um, oh, haram, and his food is haram. Well, my shabu haram would he drinks his haram Mohammed Bisou haram what he wears is haram. Well, would there be haram and he is nourished with the haram for now used to Djibouti Dallek, how will he be answered?

00:58:48 --> 00:59:29

That's difficult to hear. Right? But it should not produce hopelessness. Right? The prophets of Allah was enemies, not talking about the impossibility of acceptance of such a DUA, but the difficulty of it. The difficulty, because he Ali salatu salam wants to tell you how Allah is looking at that person. And he also wants to tell you what, how you can cleanse yourself so that you do have be accepted. So he says, if you're doing this haram, and this haram, and this haram, and that's haram, and you're making this dua even if you are desperate, it says your DUA is weak, it cannot be strong your connection to Allah azza wa jal is weak. You don't have the energy you don't have the

00:59:29 --> 01:00:00

proximity you don't have the communication with Allah azza wa jal to be able to ask. So your drought that comes out of you, even though you are suffering, the data that comes out of you is so weak. And if Allah answered it, he answers it out of Rama out of mercy to you and me, but the data that comes out is very weak. So he says strengthen your DUA by staying away from the Haram because this is what the Haram has done to you, has disconnected you from Allah azza wa jal and what a terrible condition to be disconnected from the only one you don't

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

Want to be disconnected from your parents could disconnect you disown you they can, but you will find alternatives as difficult as it is but you will find such a substitute your your son could stop talking to you find a substitute human beings you'll find stuff to do it's even though it hurts but Allah as

01:00:23 --> 01:00:43

you turn away from Him who will take his place who will give you all answer your DUA if you're in trouble, who will take you and out of it, who will put you in Jannah who will take you away from Allah who is there for you if Allah as it is not? So this is haram, you know, that we take so easily, distances you from Allah subhanho wa taala. So it's important

01:00:44 --> 01:00:54

to understand what is the thing that is holding us back? And a couple of things insha Allah and then we will stop here. And this is a tradition in Kitab Ouzoud

01:00:55 --> 01:01:36

the habit of Be humble Rahim Allah the Imam, he says and it's a story, right? He says that blue is Surah Al were afflicted with a famine. And so they went outside to pray or to ask for rain or something like that. So Allah azza wa jal he revealed to the Prophet. He says you're going to the plain fields to ask me with bodies that are dirty or contaminated or sinful, and you are raising your hands to me, and you have shed blood with these hands. And you have filled your homes with the haram. Today, I'm angry with you, and you are very distant from me. And you will continue to be distant from me meaning you're coming out to ask for what train.

01:01:37 --> 01:01:41

Alright, and provisions, but look at your conditions.

01:01:43 --> 01:02:01

And your condition is what your hands have committed to haram. Your body has haram your houses have haram and yet you come out and you're asking me you're far away from me. That's why if you really want Sopia al matar min Allah azza wa jal, you want rain, you need to repent.

01:02:02 --> 01:02:08

Right? As you know, just because simply come out and say Allah give us your repent. Right.

01:02:09 --> 01:02:26

And this is the Sunnah of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam here to show complete humility, right? complete humility. You would turn your clothes you know upside down, you turn them over, right? The cloak that you have and you worry over till you turn it around to show complete humility. When you're asking Allah azza wa jal

01:02:28 --> 01:02:35

So, if you want to ask Haram is an obstacle and his avoider? He said.

01:02:37 --> 01:02:42

Yeah, KFI Mina dua, Ema Albury microfilter Amin and millet. He says,

01:02:43 --> 01:02:45

if you have beer righteousness,

01:02:46 --> 01:02:51

you need enough to do IR or as much dua only as you need salt with food.

01:02:53 --> 01:03:11

Near beautiful that is unless you really like salty food, right? That's an exception, right? But typically how much salt you put in your food compared to the other ingredients? A pinch. That's enough. It's as if you're righteous. What you need is a little bit of DHA and that's it.

01:03:12 --> 01:03:44

And we're not saying here, you know, advocating don't make dua No, we need as much dry as possible, but he's telling you, the potency, the effectiveness of that dua rests on righteousness. So if you're righteous, a little bit of dua will be enough for you. We're not you'd be struggling with that dua. So we'll pause here and show a little bit and I mean, and we'll continue to talk about Dr. Ethan Allah azza wa jal and the connection of dua with affliction right. What do I does when an affliction takes place before during and after we can enlarge

01:03:45 --> 01:03:46


01:03:48 --> 01:03:51

If you have questions in sha Allah, let me know

01:03:53 --> 01:03:54

Alexandra Angelo Rekha.

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

Oh, he says any recommendation as to the number of times the year that you repeat the Fatiha as a as a Rukia odd numbers, right. So, you could do it once you could do it three times you could do seven times, you could do it directly on the person you could do it and blow it on water water and have them drink that water and you can alternate between them insha Allah and you could repeat so do it again three times or once or three times or seven times be the last soldier. So with

01:04:31 --> 01:04:33

that concept of being addicted

01:04:34 --> 01:04:41

so what's what do we do if we find ourselves like trying to develop this habit in practice?

01:04:43 --> 01:04:44

What do we do or how do we do it

01:04:48 --> 01:04:52

to your hearts truly became pure you will never be compared to now this true.

01:04:54 --> 01:04:57

These barriers to us to

01:04:58 --> 01:04:59

always wanting to

01:05:02 --> 01:05:37

So the question is, what are the barriers that we have that stop us from wanting to always be with the Quran and to always be with dhikr? First of all, is that we give actually priority to everything else. But then, and in the beginning, you're not going to find that natural inclination towards reading the Quran and Dhikr you have to force yourself to do it. Just think again of medicine, right? Or healthy food. If you're used to bad food, junk food, right? Think of kids, right? Here is junk food and there is good food, what are they going to choose?

01:05:39 --> 01:05:40

Every time junk food garbage,

01:05:41 --> 01:06:17

they're going to use junk food all the time. yourself is like a child. Exactly. So it wants junk food all the time. So by that it wants to watch TV all the time and wants to go out with friends all the time. And it wants to be in the mall all the time. And it wants to play video games all the time, because that is fun. But that is completely junk. So it doesn't want to do these things because it's heavy in the beginning. And the shaytaan makes it the heaviest by saying what are you going to do this? Are you going to do that? No, there are more attractive things. So in the beginning, you need to force yourself, you need to understand its value. And to believe in it and

01:06:17 --> 01:06:56

say I need to do this because if I don't, and not only am I missing out, I'm putting myself in peril. Like my Eman in peril. My hereafter is in peril. In short term long term, you're going to begin to suffer in the dunya because of it in your relationships, or mentally, psychologically, you will begin to suffer you will feel it. So I better treat it now before it escalates. So when you do this, and you find the beauty and you need discipline, meaning you need to tell yourself I'm not going to read the Quran whenever there's never going to happen. Right? When you want to eat, what do you do?

01:06:58 --> 01:07:10

You plan, you go by the food, you bring it, you have a recipe you cook, you know when you're going to eat, you wash the dishes, it's a process. So when you say read the Quran, great, when? How long,

01:07:11 --> 01:07:21

right? So you decide every day at this time for this time, amount of time. That's the habit, vicar. I'll decide to do it this time every day.

01:07:22 --> 01:07:53

For this time for this amount of time. That's how you develop a habit. Right? And then Allah azza wa jal then and now you will begin to see things from Allah. Right? Things are maybe peculiar to you, what Allah will make you love reading the Quran more, will give you more time will give you more Baraka, you'll discover another vicar from the Sunnah that you like she will see more of that, he'll discover its effect, you'll go through some trouble. And that trouble is by design.

01:07:54 --> 01:08:05

It's not haphazard, it's by design, because Allah azza wa jal wants to lock another piece of your heart. So you will feel the needs, I feel lonely, you read more thicker, you feel better.

01:08:07 --> 01:08:40

You grab onto it is hard, then to let go of it. So that's how you plan and you ask, and you persist. And you keep at it until you find its beauty and you don't let go of it. And you're gonna go through times where you don't feel like the Quran and you don't feel like dhikr. And when that happens, you dropped to a minimum, you don't let go, but you dropped to a minimum. So when you're really strong, maybe you're reading 10 pages a day, five pages a day. But when you really weak half a page, but you don't let go of it so that you don't lose the habit.

01:08:57 --> 01:09:41

Proper provision not have for what about the one, the condition of the one you're making? You are for example, given this is an unbeliever, no. Fly that it doesn't matter the status of the person you make the job for you? No, it doesn't. It implies that it's always possible to benefit the person even if they disbelieve in Allah Zoda even if their Iman is weak, even if they are skeptical, right? It's possible to benefit them. But the benefit decreases when they are in that condition. So when we talked about having two strengths coming from the person who's reading and the person who's receiving that reading, or that dua, the person who's read doing that reading is very strong. And

01:09:41 --> 01:09:59

they're close to Allah azza wa jal, they could affect the other person, even if the person is unwilling. Even the person is a disbeliever. They could affect him. And he could cure him because of that, as that hadith demonstrates, but also you have the condition or the possibility that if the * they talked about the person who's receiving is

01:10:00 --> 01:10:38

not receptive. So he's not open. And he is skeptical. Even with the strength of the person, he might present an obstacle because it is in belief, who is not very close to Allah as origin or he is doing some haram. So that's why you tell that person are you doing haram? So the people who will they would say, say utopia? Are you doing some haram because the nuclear that I'm reading is not as effective. So stop this haram and stop this haram or do you have things at home? They'll tell him this, do you have things at home that will interfere with the rokeya that I'm reading, because when you're reading are okay, especially especially if it's a spiritual illness. And if there's Jinn

01:10:38 --> 01:11:09

involved, the jinn will fight you. Right. And you're fighting back. And the person there who's receiving the Opia is doing what is in the middle fighting, trying to fight as well. But if they're committing something that is haram, or there's something haram in their house, the effect of the Autopia weakens, and the power of the jinn or the shayateen increases. So how do you weaken them remove the Haram, then the rokeya is more effective. So it does tell you that it still plays a part.

01:11:10 --> 01:11:25

The one who's reading could be strong enough that he could just cast all that aside, but as a principal, no, it does play a part in how receptive you are, how clean you are, how close to Allah as to how trusting you are of Allah will increase the possibility of healing

01:11:30 --> 01:11:31

again, now that's and

01:11:44 --> 01:11:51

now, now, so according to that, and there's a disagreement about it, but there's according to this hadith, right, if a person

01:11:52 --> 01:12:27

asks for something in return, especially it's not in return for the reading of the Quran, right? Like reading the Quran, right the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said Minister thought I mean come on in for our whole failure for failure and fear of failure fail if you can benefit your brother benefit him. The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam also would read Rukia and not ask for anything in return. But sometimes, just like when teaching the Quran, fundamentally, when you teach your Quran you want it to be for what free. But it's not always possible to do this was the person who is teaching the Quran has to be dedicated, has to sit has to spend his time. So they're saying you're

01:12:27 --> 01:12:52

paying him not for the teaching, but for his time. So it's not possible, especially today for people to give Rukia because it involves what time and transportation and effort. So if it's not possible to give that Rukia except by receiving something else for the person's time, then we say it's permissible. And do we have evidence for it will lo alum otherwise that would not be able to be sustainable

01:12:58 --> 01:12:58

for him,

01:13:00 --> 01:13:26

because he's asking for the right. And that is right. 100 the other end, the right was to be hosted Islamically even Islamically they had to be hosted. So it says they didn't give us our rights. So he took he took the right from them, or his right from them. So that's why it was legitimate that they would do this. I just want to see this no one else Sweden, UK from the Lella No, no problem shot I didn't see any other hand

01:13:32 --> 01:13:33

because I believe

01:13:35 --> 01:13:36

that people will go to

01:13:37 --> 01:13:37


01:13:41 --> 01:13:48

Now so that's a good question. No, we'll we'll stop there in sha Allah. So it says a deficiency or let's say for instance, a

01:13:49 --> 01:14:02

drop from the highest levels, where you if you ask somebody to give you a rope here, right? So we see is According to some scholars based on the Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam one of those who will enter Jannah without any questioning,

01:14:04 --> 01:14:43

without any punishment, or without any questioning and one of the prophets Allah was salam described them, he said, like Mr. Kuhn, what are your thoughts? Are ya Runa or Bohemia? What karoun So they don't believe in bad omens and they don't ask for Rukia and they trust Allah and Allah azza wa jal fully. So they've said that yes, there is that elite status, right up there. of people who don't ask for rope here. They give it but they don't ask it. There's why is it that they don't ask for Rukia they say simply because if you ask someone for help, then a branch of your heart is connected and reliant on them. So because they trust in Allah Zoji and so completely and so utterly, they don't

01:14:43 --> 01:14:59

even ask for Rukia because they don't want even a branch of their heart to rely on somebody else because happens. Suppose somebody reads a look here. And it works. Right? You'll say he's what? Special, good close to Allah as urgent this and that and

01:15:00 --> 01:15:40

could be the case, but part of your heart started to rely on him. So next time something is wrong call so and so. Right. So to stay away from that they don't ask for Rukia. Now, we said that that belongs to the highest of levels. Does that mean it's haram to ask for Rukia? No, I and some people need it. Some people need to ask if that's not working for them, they can't do it, they can help themselves, and the pain persists. And there is no way out. We say go ahead and ask for Rukia. Because it's hard for us to push everybody up to that level and say, God, don't ask for anything. So if you can tolerate

01:15:41 --> 01:16:02

tolerate the condition without asking, and you're at that level, and you could you know, as with that woman that came to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And he said, I go through seizures and I in uncover, make dua for me that Allah would heal me and He gave her an option at his Salatu was Salam. He says, if you wish, I'll make dua for you. Or if not, you be patient and you go to Jana.

01:16:05 --> 01:16:07

So it's up to you.

01:16:08 --> 01:16:43

Right, if you can push yourself don't because some people think that there's too strong and they lose their Eman because of it. So if you're like that woman and you say because that's what she chose his lb patient, meaning I'll continue to suffer. And she could have said that make dua I want to be done with this. But he said I'll continue to suffer, just make dua that I don't uncover. And he did that he sort of was, but he continued to suffer. So if you're like her, you could do this and if not, may Allah have mercy on someone who knows his own limits? Right. I can be patient with this ask for Rokia. It doesn't Sharla diminish you

01:16:56 --> 01:17:17

if it's any haram any haram if they're using interest if they're using specially any arriba and buying the house and they have no cars, no necessity there. It affects them as well. Hello Ed.
