salida Allah Allah He was so happy with cillum

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

Allama alumna microphone Oh, and finally my LinkedIn I was in Edmond Rabbil Alameen Lama in Cracow, Ashok Rico, Hosni Burdick,

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

and my bad

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

are the punishment of sins. As I'm gonna play him Rahimullah

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

keeps telling us the last thing we talked about what is about a Euro, or jealousy.

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

And this one is connected to it. And it's called

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

the hub will hear

00:00:39--> 00:00:42

that higher or shyness goes away.

00:00:43--> 00:01:06

And shyness is one of those or HIA is one of those words or terms that are rich, and so are on translatable fully to English, because you can fully captured when you say shyness, because that also can convey weakness for someone who's shy, typically, right, they don't speak up. They're not strong, they're not aggressive. So

00:01:07--> 00:01:15

higher is not just that higher is having a sense of honour, and a sense of shame. When it comes to

00:01:16--> 00:02:08

dishonorable matters. displeasing to Allah as xojo you have that sense of this is wrong, and you're embarrassed to be around it embarrassed to be a person who would commit that, and also resistant to it, so you'll speak up against it. So if you want to understand what higher is more than the word China's, understand how the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was because he's described, can shut the higher and mineral either or if he said that he he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who has had more hair or more shyness than a virgin that is shielded from interaction outside interactions with children at home. So a person like that, a woman like that young at that, who does not intermix with people

00:02:08--> 00:02:54

who will be the shy, most shy person you could imagine. And if you speak to her, she would just be very quiet, very shy, turned red in the face. So he said la Salatu was Salam he was more shy than that. But that does not mean that he does not speak up against evil does not command good, that he does not is not brave and forward when need be. But when it comes to his own things, la Salatu was Salam to his own personal things. He'd be very shy, right? So he says, Oh, the punishment, so I'm going to use the word higher, China's China's higher, right. But you understand kind of the gap between them, right? So he says, An of the punishment of sin is that this higher will go away. And

00:02:54--> 00:03:12

that higher is the life of the heart. And it's the origin of old good, and when it's gone, all good is gone. So it kind of encapsulates all of religion and all of morality, when you have higher and if you don't have it, you're not shy, you're not embarrassed. There's no sense of shame. There is that based on no sense of right and wrong.

00:03:13--> 00:03:19

Right? No sense of right or wrong, you don't have it, so you don't feel a shame when doing anything or seeing anything.

00:03:21--> 00:03:54

And in the saw, he said that he la salatu salam, an authentic hadith, he said Al higher or higher, Ronquillo. Higher is all good. There's nothing bad about it. Nothing but as long as it's practiced, right, as long as you understand what higher is, right? So that's why there was one of the Sahaba who was saying we're reading this hadith or similar Hadith. Then another interjected and said, well, Akina and Anissa often hikma, he says, but we hear from ancient wisdom, meaning alternate sources that says, some of them, some of it is good, and some of it is bad.

00:03:55--> 00:04:03

He said, I tell you that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said, all of it is good, and you bringing me somebody else's words to oppose his, I'm not going to talk to you.

00:04:05--> 00:04:30

So this is how they believed in what he said la Salatu was Salam and they had allegiance to it. So of course, what that man was talking about, was not here. It was just simple, agile embarrassment that would prevent you from speaking the truth here does not it? Hire only brings good, only brings good, so again, a sense of right and wrong and a sense of honor.

00:04:31--> 00:04:52

And he also said that a Salatu was Salam Inami Moroccan nurserymen kala Mindomo watin Hola either and MTUS Dahai Fossen Amma ship he says of what people is still got hold of still remembered from the statements of early prophethood if you are not, if you do not have Hana higher than do whatever you want.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

If you do not have higher than do whatever you want, that's his that's the thing they still remember

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Word from the words of early prophethood.

00:05:04--> 00:05:27

And ignore claim, he says with the heat of sit on, there are two explanations to that statement. If you don't have higher, then do whatever you want. He says it's either a threat or a direction. As he explains here, it's either a threat meaning that hola as though it is telling people, if you are not shy, then in that case, do whatever you want.

00:05:29--> 00:05:50

Do whatever you want, you're going to see the consequence, meaning you should have it but if you don't, after constant reminders, and you're still not shy, you don't have Hala. Then guess what? Do whatever you want, you will see the consequence of this. And this is like when Allah azza wa jal, he says, If you don't pay him, he says, as when Allah said, MLO mercy to do whatever you want. It's not a permission.

00:05:51--> 00:05:59

Like do whatever you want them because if that's the permission, that don't contradict everything else, everything else that the prophet is that Allah azza wa jal had said

00:06:01--> 00:06:24

there's a car that is blocking someone, this is all going to be online versus this person is going to be famous or infamous, black Nissan Nissan, is it VD WB 056? Right? V D WB 056 zamak. Allah heylife You are doing that in sha Allah, it's part of Sn part of good deeds, right, just to go and relieve somebody's hardship and come back Barak Allah if you can, right.

00:06:26--> 00:06:26


00:06:28--> 00:06:46

so the first is that is what a threat, right? Yeah, no, no machine can do whatever you want. No, meaning Allah is telling you do whatever you want, you will find the consequence. Just like if you want to be combative with someone right? And you want to fight with them, or you want to test them, you see, oh, yeah, hit me.

00:06:47--> 00:07:12

If that's not a permission mean, hit me, I'm gonna take it hit me, you'll see what's going to happen. So here is LM tester, hey, if you don't have that, then do it. And then you will find out the consequence of your needs. So that's the threat or a direction meaning that if you don't feel shy when committing such an act, then that's a valid act, that's permissible act. So meaning shyness is what your guide here, but of course, you have to have fitrah

00:07:13--> 00:07:24

right, you have to have the sound fitrah you have to have the Eman they have to have a sound mind so that you distinguish between right and wrong. Right? You want to say something?

00:07:29--> 00:07:29


00:07:31--> 00:07:59

furniture for human woman Shefali AK four Oh, if you want to believe or if you want disbelief. And again, Zack Allah here. That's not a permission or not. That's not a choice. Some people will think, Oh, it's just Allah is giving you the choice. In one sense, in a cosmic sense, you have a choice. But in a Sharia machine sense. You don't have a choice, right? Allah has the dual condemn you for it when you meet him. And he can say, well, they Allah gave me the option. It's not an option, Allah is threatening. So

00:08:01--> 00:08:12

if we say that this is a direction, meaning, it means higher guide you, but you must have beyond the original fistula for you to understand this. Now,

00:08:14--> 00:08:42

what's interesting here is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam noted that this is of the statements of early prophethood, meaning the early prophets spoke to this, and they said this, and still people remembered it and stayed. Maybe you stayed in terms of Proverbs, or, you know, an old wisdom that circulates, but it was originally from Allah zodion, through the prophets that he had sent to humanity, which tells you that higher is the origin, as he said, of all Sharia

00:08:43--> 00:09:27

is based on it. And when you don't have it, you don't have Islam, you don't have Sharia, you don't have Iman. So you must have it. And it's connected to life as it no claim, we'll say we'll say it's connected to life that is higher and higher, and higher and higher, they're close, higher is life. Higher is this shyness that we talked about. So as if Subhanallah because they are derived are so close to each other. It's as if to tell you that this is so natural that you are if you're alive, you must have a sense of shame and right and wrong. Just alive, right? Having full life uncorrupted life, you'll have a sense of right and wrong, what you can do and what you cannot do. But when you

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

begin to lose this, you begin to lose real life.

00:09:31--> 00:09:35

You're living in body only, but you're not living in Seoul. Right.

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

And we are living just when we've spoke previously about that kind of sense of jealousy right when you see something wrong being done, and how we're losing that higher is the brother of this, the brother of that jealousy, that China's because we're losing that as well. So people feel less and less a shame.

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

aimed at doing wrong things. Right? And that is Allah Adam, the effect of being so materialistic,

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

and living in a capitalist world with a capitalist point of view, because capitalism is based on what matter, materialism just money, there's no soul in it. There's no real morality to it. What is the morality in capitalism? It's just you make a profit, you make money. That's the good thing. There's nothing wrong. Right? So if you're materialistic, and it's only based on body and matter, when you can touch and how you can make money, why would you have shame? Because if you could use your body to make money, would you not use it? Because it's profitable, it would be insane not to use it? If that's the moral foundation of a person. Yeah, of course, use your body to make money.

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

Why not? And of course, you know, if you are,

00:10:53--> 00:11:20

if you have a body that is attractive, or what to stop you from displaying that body, and feeling good about yourself when you display it, and losing all sense of shame by saying, I'm not going to be felt, feel ashamed about my body, no body shaming, I'm going to show you this, and I'm going to show that. And yeah, of course, and people egg each other, of course, you know, demonstrate this show this, you're so beautiful, you're so attractive, this is this, and this is that, so there is no higher at all, you lose it.

00:11:21--> 00:11:40

And so Subhanallah a person devolves into becoming worse than an animal. Right? Because animals when they display their body, they display it for what meeting? Just to find like a husband, let's call it right hand sign a wife for meeting for money, not for profit. Right. So

00:11:41--> 00:12:16

that is an early understanding that people had of what shyness is. And he said, it's kind of it's the cornerstone. He says, Is it possible that since we said it's either it's a threat or a direction? He says, Could it be in both of them at the same time, he says no coordinators opinion, it could mean this or that. But one leads to the other meaning if you say it's a threat, it kind of leads you to understand that it also gives you an option and a direction. Or if it's a direction, you'll understand from it that it could also be a threat. So both of them,

00:12:17--> 00:12:57

he said. So he says the point here is that sins will weaken higher to an extent that you could lose it completely. And he could reach or she could reach the point that he or she they don't care about people knowing the terrible things that they are doing. And even the intimate details. In fact, he will volunteer and tell them I'm doing these terrible things will harm you to Allah Allahu Allah, daddy consider him a lot higher. The reason why he is so public about all of this, as we mentioned before, is that he had lost all hire. He says, if a person has reached that level, it's hard to reform him. can't hope to reform him. You're not it doesn't mean that you've lost hope. But I've

00:12:57--> 00:13:18

reached the brink of disaster right now. Because if you have nothing left and you're going to commit every despicable act in public and you are going to volunteer to tell people about it, especially it's more most despicable when it's for money. Right? If you're going to do that then what's left in you terms of morality in terms of good to bring you back.

00:13:20--> 00:14:06

So, what am I what am your puffy Salah Hey Mothma and he's here there's a piece of verse of poetry here. He says what era? I mean that those type of people he says, what you Dada Billy SOTL at our G Hi yah, Karla de to Allah, you flee who he says only bliss will see such a face he says, Welcome, I'll die for such a loser. Right, I'll give my life for such a loser. Meaning that he wants to convey that when he believes such such a person whom had managed so much to misguide when he sees him up. So happy says welcome. I would die for people like you, meaning I've got you, and I would wish to get more of you. And he says, we'll hire almost duck one minute higher, T.

00:14:07--> 00:14:51

Higher is derived from higher meaning as long as you're alive. And then Subhanallah just think of people who their father is not corrupt, would he? Or which she allows somebody to come and touch their spouse, be close to them, flirt with them, just natural. See them naked. Right? Would that be would that would they permit that? He says no rock that's fitrah that's part of that higher. Allah had deposited that in you. If you lose it, then you're losing your own humanity. He says well ray through he says even water is cold here because three because water brings life and that's connected also to higher and he says also higher brings life in the dunya and in the euro. So one who does not

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

hire is dead in this dunya and miserable in the era. And he says there's a connection between lack of higher lack of shyness and

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

And what we talked about last last week, which is kind of the zeal or jealousy because all of them bring each other or lead to each other. And he says, subhanAllah This is beautiful. He says, when Minister he I mean Allah here in democracy, it is to him Allah homeopathy, haoma yoga, it says if you are shy, to disobey Allah as the judge, when it comes time to disobey Him, you're shy, Allah will be shy to punish you. And the shyness of Allah xojo Again, right, it's higher, some weakness, but Allah xojo will not see fit to punish you

00:15:36--> 00:16:00

will not see and higher is a one attribute of Allah as xojo in Allah Allah is to hear you'll remember the landmarks mentioned in the Quran, right? Woman, the Mr. Heyman Marcia did Mr. Heyman obey. And this is if you are not, don't have higher, when it comes to sin, Allah will not have higher to punish you. Right? So if you have a purse, if you're a person of higher,

00:16:01--> 00:16:01


00:16:03--> 00:16:20

you will not sin. You will see it's kind of embarrassing. Beneath a servant of Allah as you'd be embarrassed that Allah would see you like that. And then how would you face him? How would you explain it so you would stay away from it?

00:16:21--> 00:16:39

And subhanAllah the one who was and if you're have a higher of Allah has ordered things around you will have higher around you. Even the names of Allah xojo. Right. As he said Alia Salatu was Salam, as he once was sitting at a Salatu was Salam, right, and

00:16:40--> 00:17:00

Oba could came, Omar came, and then Earth men came he adjusted the way he sat at least Salatu was Salam. They say why even Omar K, Abu Bakr and Omar Kane, can you sat casually but when Earth man came you adjusted, it says, as the Haven murders the Havenwood Manor acre Shall I not have higher of the one whom the angels have higher around?

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

Right was not found was known to be what? A person of extreme higher. So the Prophet salallahu Salam reflected that in how he also treated him he had no he had a lot of hate towards him, because the angels of Allah azza wa jal had hired around with men.

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

So whatever character good character you have, it'll be reflected in what is around So the angels used to run away from home. Oh, my God, like take the other path, right when Omakase Hammer was so strong.

00:17:32--> 00:18:00

I'm sorry, the devils they say the devil's. Okay, so the devil is right. They used to be afraid of a rumor of the other one. No. And the angels have higher up with man. So whatever character you have, you excel out of the worship of Allah azza wa jal that make you bring you closer to him. It affects also how other things around or other beings around the relate to you. Right? So he says he that you're higher here, because Allah has to have higher so he doesn't punish you.

00:18:02--> 00:18:47

He says and also from the punishment of sins is that they weaken the heart and they end the heart does not revere Allah Zoda does not honor him. And Allah is Allah's kind of respect. You lose Allah's respect in your heart, and it has to happen. He says, whether you wish that or not, because if you really revered Allah, you wouldn't disobey. That cannot make sense, right? Because if you revere anyone, you wouldn't upset them. If you want to, if you honor if you respect anyone, you would not disrespect them. So so if you sin, it must affect how you respect and revere Allah subhanho wa taala. He says, and maybe somebody who is fooled will say

00:18:48--> 00:19:35

the thing that makes me sin is that I hope the best from Allah as Odin and I hope to forgive, I hope that he will forgive me. It's not that I revere him less. And he says, this is a false argument that that nefs is introducing a false argument, while autotune mean NFC, because he says that reference that a person has in the heart of the servant must require that you stay away from sin. And that requires right and Toddie will format meaning you honor Allah's prohibitions, you look at them with with reverence, Allah said, No, so it really means no. And if Allah really said no to this, it means that you will stay away from this sin, and those who transgress those bounds and they commit those

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

sins. They did not revere Allah and honor him as he should supposed to be revered. And how could it be that someone could revere Allah xojo and honor him and consider him to be the greatest and most powerful and who could see everyone and sees into your heart and he's Kabir and Musa al Aziz, all of these and yet you commit that sin. How is it possible that you have all of these attributes in your mind and in your heart you believe in them yet? He goes

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

against them. So you don't go against them unless they are weak. And if you go against Allah that sin will weaken your iman and Allah azza wa jal, it has. So he says it's enough punishment that Allah azza wa jal will take the reverence or you will take a reverence away from your heart. See, you will esteem Allah Allah and revere him less and respect him less and love him less. And he says out that punishment because this is what you did, you revere Allah, Allah says, You respect Allah, Allah says Allah asserted will take the respect that people have for you from their hearts. So people will respect you less. And revere you Willis and love you listen, remember we talked a little

00:20:39--> 00:21:17

bit about this. So if you don't honor Allah, people will not honor you. If you don't respect Allah, people will not respect you. If you don't elevate Allah as certain people will demote you and downgrade you, Holloway who know him while you're still a foreigner Vika Mahana Ali Umbra who was to have a big, they will belittle you, they will make fun of you. They will ridicule you as you ridiculed Allah's commands for Allah Catarina Huberty Abdullah you hit bonus. These are the beautiful words of a claim that can be used on remembering you want to highlight highlight for Allah Kadima hub batil Abdi Linda Heyyo a bonus as much as you love Allah, people will love you.

00:21:18--> 00:21:43

And of course, we're not seeking people's love by saying we want to love Allah. It's not like a an indirect way of say, I want people to love me. So I want to love Allah for that. That's not our ultimate goal right? Now our ultimate goal is the love of Allah but he wants to show you consequences and rewards the things that you want anyway. So he says as much as you love Allah, people will love you. What Allah did he how he him in Allah, He, you have fulfilled

00:21:44--> 00:21:48

that's really beautiful and as much as you love Allah, people will be afraid of you.

00:21:50--> 00:22:21

Now you want to say I don't know if I want people to be afraid of me. But it's the kind Knight nice type of fear, Respect. Respect, right? As much as you fear Allah. So this person right? defenseless, nothing with him no power, no one to protect him has innocence, no backing, lay said a whole lot. No backing, enters into the corner of a king or a Khalifa. This person is about to kill him or he could kill him and he speaks the truth.

00:22:24--> 00:22:25

And he releases it.

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

Like he faces him right? confronts him with

00:22:31--> 00:23:01

things that he doesn't like he doesn't want to hear. Just like Musa alayhis salam went to Pharaoh. What stopped Pharaoh from killing Musa they think about it right? He's alone? Or with Harun still? What kind of power do they have in the court of Pharaoh? And he says, He's speaking directly to Pharaoh do this and do this and do this. Towards the end. He's harsh with Pharaoh when he talks to him. What stops him from killing Musa and how long? He has what backing does he have?

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

Allah xojo Allah azza wa jal, right. So it's also mentioned this is just came to mind right now, as the story of him retain Mara himolla when

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

he and a group of scholars, they came out of Damascus

00:23:20--> 00:23:43

and there was a camp of the Mongols and Mazel Tov, they call them and they were calving outside. And so he would the scholars went to talk to them. And when some of the scholars, other scholars, they were talking to the Mongols and the Mongols are known to be what ruthless I mean, they could just kill you. There is no no hesitation. So when they were talking to them, they were being very diplomatic.

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

And he told me when he started to talk to the Mongol leader.

00:23:50--> 00:24:31

He was very brave and confrontation confrontational and not antagonistic. But you came here, and you saying that you're Muslims, and you're killing people, and you're taking their money. And, and, and, and, and this is direct to his face, right. And people and people are saying that the rest who came with him, it says as he's talking, he says, kind of they start to withdraw back, going back back back a little bit collecting their clothes because they're thinking he's going to be killed, so don't want to be tainted or contaminated with his blood. You get dinner, he's dead. Right? So and the leader there, I think he was cousin. I'm not sure. The leader there he was sitting and listening

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

and taking it all sitting and listening and taking his Oh. So at the end of it right. He said that leader you said to Potamia he said make dua for me. He says oh Allah if this servant cousin of yours had come to elevate your religion and champion and do this and good, good, good, good, do good things. Y'all elevate him and support him and do this and this. And if you know that he is displeasing to you and came to oppose you really?

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

and kill people and take their money dishonor him and do this to him and do this to him and do that to him. This face.

00:25:07--> 00:25:42

So the people then other scholars who are with it, no Tamia, they said, Well lie, we're not going to go back with you. You're about to kill us all. We're not going to turn you back to Damascus with you. It says I'm not gonna go back with you either way. Right? Even if you didn't ask them not gonna go back with you. So they've separated he left with some people they left alone, subnet AMI, right when he left. A lot of people came around to celebrate what he said thank him for it, whatever. And then he journeyed back safely to Damascus, the other people on their way, right, because they were alone. highway robbers came, they stopped them stole everything that they had with them and came

00:25:42--> 00:25:53

back with nothing to Damascus. So it's just an idea here that Yeah, I mean, you could be afraid of people. But it's not going to take you anywhere.

00:25:54--> 00:26:35

And people will trample all over you humiliates you because they know you're afraid of them. So if I know that you are afraid of me, well, of course, you're my servant. Now. I control you. But if you're afraid of Allah as Odin, I got no control over you. I can try to punish you torture you this and that. But if I fail to break your spirit, you're stronger than me. And you're stronger than me because of Allah Zota so that's why he says, I love Kadri Sophy him in Allah Hafiz. Wacka drita of the Mihaela he will hold Almighty he will have the moon NASA for Rometty he says as long as much as you honor Allah azza wa jal and his prohibitions, people will honor your prohibitions, meaning

00:26:35--> 00:26:41

they're not going to cross you cross whatever is sanctified.

00:26:42--> 00:27:17

Your Money, Your Honor, your property, your religion, they're not going to attack you who I didn't, they are going to honor you, not because you because you honored Allah azza wa jal, so you stopped, are you supposed to stop, they're gonna stop when they're supposed to stop Allah and abide by the way, it doesn't mean that you're not going to be hurt, I don't on a person to understand that. Or just if I obey Allah as no one is going to hurt me. You will be hurt, right? You will be hurt. How do you know? He says, Did not the prophets of Allah get hurt?

00:27:18--> 00:28:02

So you will be hurt? In the beginning, but eventually No. Eventually you will have power over them. Right? But initially you will be heard. He says and he says and how is it possible that a person could transgress Allah's prohibitions and think that people are not going across his own prohibitions? Or how is it possible that he will look down on Allah's rights? And Allah has lived it will not drag downgrade him in people's eyes? Or how is it possible that he's not gonna take lightly Allah's sins, and then people will not also ridicule him? And he says, Allah has zodia had pointed to that in his book when he talked about the punishment of sin, meaning how this punishment fits the

00:28:02--> 00:28:45

sin. And it's of the nature of that sin. One who arkessa Our Baba Habima, aka Sybil does those sins, people who commit that sins, Allah xojo turns them on their heads. As they have turned on their feet or upside down, he turns them on their heads, meaning he demotes them or he destroys them because of it. And he said he puts a seal on their hearts because of it. And he forgot them as they forgot him. And we will talk about that I Insha Allah, wa Han Han, Han Medina who and he humiliated them as they humiliated his religion. And he let go of them as they ignore or he ignored them or let go of them as they ignored his command. And he says, and that's why Allah azza wa jal, he said in the eye about

00:28:45--> 00:28:54

the prostration of creation to him, when were you Hany Allah HuFa mela hoomin mockery, if Allah humiliates one, no one can bring honor to them.

00:28:56--> 00:29:48

So it's the icing the eye is about all of creation, prostrating to Allah Zota then he said after and the one who is, is humiliated by Allah as Zota no one can honor Him and He says, When they refuse to prostrate to Allah azza wa jal and they took that lightly and ridiculed it and did not do it. Allah humiliated them. Right. Fela Mia cuando mockery mon Bada and her normal Allah no one could honor them after Allah had humiliated them. So you understand what the dinar so what's what's the connection here that Allah Azza did is asking people who won honor to humble themselves to them to him. So what is the greatest position of humility is sujood which kind of expresses physically the

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

ultimate submission was also supposed to do what indicate the submission of the soul and you're not prostrating by body only but by body and soul. So if a person is proud in

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

If an arrogant enough and you disbelieve or who rejects that type of humility, Allah as it is saying that then you're not gonna get any honor. You're not gonna get any honor in if Allah azza wa jal humiliates you who can give you honor.

00:30:17--> 00:30:27

And that is also a beautiful piece of wisdom to keep in mind. Because as we talked about previously, everybody's looking for honor to be honorable, to have power,

00:30:28--> 00:30:58

not to be humiliated for his rights not to be taken away from them. So if you see that with the Muslims, do we have a prom? Or we have Rihanna? Rihanna, Rihanna we really humiliated except for a few of us. But we everybody else is really humiliated. So what's the what's the way out of it? So there's one thing that we are not doing which that what we don't have a crumb of Allah as soon as as simple as that.

00:30:59--> 00:31:43

Maya Quran Allah has voted for a Quran Allah. Yeah, we didn't honor Allah. So Allah didn't honor us. If you were to honor Allah, Allah would honor you. And even if everybody turns against you, and they want to bring you down, they can't. Because they tried to when Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam, all that they had, all their power, they couldn't. So worldly power cannot stand against Allah zodion and worldly power cannot bring someone down whom Allah had elevated. So that's why Allah is saying, if Allah humiliates you, no one can bring honor to you. And if he honors you, no one can humiliate you, all the attacks will just wash away, all the plots will be turned away, against them even and

00:31:43--> 00:31:50

you will be saved eventually by Allah as right woman that you clean them and earn Allah are you human Ekrem Allah.

00:31:52--> 00:32:20

It says woman at local Bertie had on the punishment of sins, he also says and had tested etc. And Allah Luciana Allah Helia Abdullahi Watarrka, who were to clear the houbigant who have been nfcu or shaytani. He says, what the cause is that Allah has devoted will forget you, let go of you, and neglect you and leave you to yourself and leave you to your shaitan and that is destruction, with which there is no escape or there's no safety, there's no salvation, you mean Allah if he forgets you.

00:32:22--> 00:32:38

And if he leaves you right to yourself, and to your shaytaan so if you're left to yourself and to shaytaan you're destroyed, because your Self cannot save you. And shaitan is against you. And he says Allah zodion said,

00:32:39--> 00:33:12

Yeah, you're living in ermine or do you will have Eman have Dacor of Allah and consider what you had put forward for tomorrow market the magnificent lira, what did you do for tomorrow? What duckula Have the core of Allah and Allah have you rhombi Mata and Allah knows well what you are doing? What are the Kuno kelda The Nana Salah and Sir home and Fusa home what and do not be like those who forgot about Allah and Allah, meet them forget about themselves. Do not be like those who forgot about Allah. Then Allah made them forget about themselves. And he said

00:33:15--> 00:33:26

the punishment of the one who leaves Taqwa is that you forget about yourself and forgetting about yourself is forgetting about your well being your own welfare, what benefits you?

00:33:28--> 00:33:45

And it's always kind of amazing to kind of try to understand this idea. Right? How could a person forget about their own welfare? Because the only the thing that you're doing every single minute of the day is being worried about your own welfare.

00:33:46--> 00:34:10

Okay, not a lot of people think about others. But most of the time, even if you're thinking about others, most of the time, you're thinking about your own welfare. I'm hungry, I need to eat, I'm thirsty, I need to drink. I'm naked, I need to be be covered. I need more money. I need more this more this more this, you're always thinking about yourself yourself and the benefit, not the harm, the benefit. So how could you forget about your own well being.

00:34:11--> 00:34:13

And it's protection from punishment.

00:34:14--> 00:34:49

Because you forgot about the next life. That's that's the beginning of it. You forgot about the next life. So if a person is not worried about the next life, you're marching towards your own destruction, you're doing all the things that may please you now. Oh, this is beautiful. I'll eat it and I'll drink it. This is beautiful. I will look at it. I'll listen to it. I'll touch it. I'll do it. I'll smoke it, whatever it is. So you're taking this. So you're seeking pleasure, pleasure, pleasure, pleasure, pleasure all the time. Again, it's very materialistic. And this whole global culture is materialistic and there's very tiny space left for those who have Iman very, very small.

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

Right there. If you think like that, you're really awkward. You're really out of place. But so everything is about my my pleasure, my pleasure. What I'm feeling

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

Right now what I want right now, so make me happy make me happy make me happy. So social media makes me happy. Let me smoke made me happy. It's only chasing whatever this temporary momentary happiness. So you're thinking about you're making yourself what? Happy. And this is your own benefit, but in things is like somebody who's taking drugs thinking just because he's taking drugs and he's feeling fine while he's taking drug. He's fine.

00:35:23--> 00:36:00

But you're killing your body. So there's there's no vision of what's going to happen later. I just want the right now. So killing your body. Are you sleeping around? You're thinking, Oh, that's fun. I'm feeling nice, right? I'm feeling that that urge so unfulfilling it one after the other one after the other, but you don't understand a what you're doing to your own body. When this is happening, the diseases that you contracting and giving to other people. Some of them you may feel, but some of them you may not feel but you have them. Right? Like there's a million people, they say there's a million people each day globally, that are contracting sexual diseases, or they call them sexual

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

infections. Some of them don't have symptoms, but you take them and you spread them million each day, globally.

00:36:09--> 00:36:09

That's a lot.

00:36:10--> 00:36:18

Right? That's a lot. Let's think about that. So what are you doing to yourself? What are you doing to other people around you than what you're doing to your society?

00:36:20--> 00:36:52

You're drinking alcohol. Oh, it's freedom. Let me drink alcohol, right. It's freedom. Let me drink alcohol. We don't want it to be banned or this haram. We don't want it to be bad. So you think this is the well being and welfare of society and yourself? But there's blindness. So Subhanallah you could see it and this Allah, they forgot about Allah. And we said, we're going to decide what's right and what's wrong, right. With religion has no influence here. There's no place for God here. Okay, so you've taken God out. Okay, show us. And you see them doing things that are idiotic, stupid, very stupid.

00:36:53--> 00:36:58

And he won't if we'd like See, look, I mean, an indication of that stupidity. Look at the political leadership.

00:36:59--> 00:37:00

And they stupid.

00:37:01--> 00:37:20

I'm not here Sunday, you know, talking just about I'm not talking about Muslim countries. I'm talking about non Muslim countries, the ones who are supposed to have democracy and be able to choose the best leaders, are they choosing the best leaders? They're the stupidest people over there. How come that you select the stupidest people to elect you.

00:37:21--> 00:37:32

To rule you how, and even the system is not amenable to change can be fixed. And you can choose the best. You choose the same type of people over and over and over.

00:37:33--> 00:38:14

It's an indication of what this whole widespread corruption. So really NUS Allah, they forgot about Allah. So Allah made them forget about themselves, Allah left them to themselves. And then the shaytaan came and say, You know what, I'm going to give you advice. So you don't want divine advice. And let me give you advice. This is legal and this is legal and try this and try that and if it fails, and if you can stop a drug make it legal. If you can stop another drug make it legal right. And maybe you're not encouraged people and then needles free needles right maybe this maybe this will help. So this complete collapse or complete surrender in front of sin, right? So he said they

00:38:14--> 00:39:00

forgot the return on life and their true pleasure. So Allah azza wa jal made them forget all about all of that, because of their because they forgot his, the preference of Allah azza wa jal and the fear of Allah and upholding his commands. So he says Fatah al ASIMO Milani masala Hennessy, you see the sinful, neglectful of his own benefit, wasteful of it, Allah azza wa jal had closed his heart so he doesn't remember him. He follows his desire, his marriage are wasteful. the affairs of the dunya and the earth era are all in neglect, and he had lost his eternal happiness. And he had replaced it with something that is a pleasure but is a very fleeting pleasure. And he says come out theta alarm

00:39:00--> 00:39:04

when a woman Alkalyn Linzer Aly in the lobby of Emily Hatha Yoga Tao is is like

00:39:06--> 00:39:32

dreams, or like a fleeting shadow. It says the smart one is not deceived with that. You don't think that a dream will last or that a shadow will stay in its place? Is that the same thing with the dunya or with these pleasures, so that he says this is the greatest punishment that you would sell yourself and get in return these types of pleasures for the year Molina and who will erode Allahu Minho.

00:39:33--> 00:39:47

This is so he wasted, he's talking about Allah as for the year he had wasted he had lost the one he cannot live without and the one who is replaced so irreplaceable. Allah Zoda is irreplaceable

00:39:48--> 00:39:54

and you cannot find someone to take his place. So he says this person had lost the irreplaceable

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

if everything else is lost, you could say I could

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

find an alternative. I can find a replacement. I can even find someone better. But if you lose Allah xojo What would replace him?

00:40:09--> 00:40:47

You keep can keep looking and looking and looking. There is no spouse, there is no child, there is no job there is no palace that can shield you from a loss of Allah as a surgeon because you lost Allah and then what's going to fill that place, you're still going to die. You're still going to lose all of these things that you have, what are you going to run? So there's nowhere to run away from Allah as noted except back to Allah. Then he shields you and gives you shelter, but run away from Allah Where will you run any think about him? I'm running away from Allah as that's it. Just like a child right? Who says he's upset with his parents. And he says I'm leaving. He didn't give me

00:40:47--> 00:41:10

chocolate today I'm leaving. So the pack a little bags, and they just leave. I don't know if you've seen some of these videos. They're funny. So just leave the front door and they go back to the street and they look around and they come back. Right because there's no place to go right? But you just have to perform that hive you have to show them that you're angry. So okay, you're going to be angry with Allah and you want to leave you resentful this and that locally, where would you go?

00:41:12--> 00:41:47

This remote, most alienating, loneliest feeling to have. But if you come back to Allah azza wa jal, you're shielded and protected right here in the company of Allah is there just so Allah is irreplaceable Hala will stop that behavior and unhook kulula Rena Amin who could AWOL and he replaced Allah with something that is very replaceable and you can find an alternative to it. And this has been cliche in in other Yahoo a world on what I mean when I mean Allah He in the Yato a Waldo, it says everything that you lose Allah azza wa jal could replace it. But if you lose Allah as a gem, no one can replace him, right?

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


00:41:54--> 00:41:55

So he said,

00:41:56--> 00:42:01

from our Voluma Abdrabbuh, who were lacking volume, and if sir, he says that

00:42:02--> 00:42:36

the servant did not commit injustice against Allah as though did but he did that against himself. And Allah was not unjust with him, but he's the one who's unjust with himself. You know, when we say Allah, for God's you may say, well, like how did Allah forgot? Forget him? Is this because you don't want Allah as urgent so you distance yourself from him. So this is the outcome. So Allah forgets you because this is what you chose for yourself. So he's saying, You did not wrong Allah but you wronged yourself and Allah did not wrong you you did that to yourself. You chose it and you did it to yourself right?

00:42:39--> 00:42:39

And he said,

00:42:41--> 00:43:26

Rahim, Allah Han this, the last part insha Allah will just take a portion of it. And he says from the punishment is that it will expel the person from that circle of SN and prevent him from the or deprive him the reward of the Mussolini and he is talking here about Islam and Eman and SN being three circles. So that smallest circle is the circle of SN and that is for the elect the select the best of the best. So that's the smaller circle has the fewest number of people. The more bigger one is the one of Eman that's the bigger circle and has more than the people of Sn in it. But it includes right so the people who have sent are in the circle of Iman and the circle of Islam, but

00:43:26--> 00:44:07

they weren't an SN is close exclusive is right there at the top. Then the one at the bottom is the people of Eman it has more people in it. And the one at the very bottom is the people of Islam. So you are Muslim. But if you have a better stronger belief Eman, you go into the Eman circle or the Eman level. And if you haven't has a stronger Eman, you reach the level of unison. So it says you'll be expelled from that higher level of SN and you'd fall into the level of iman or you'd be expelled from the level of Eman into all the way to the level of Islam. So he said about your son here it says when it is in the heart if it touches the heart, it will stop him from sin. Because the one who

00:44:07--> 00:44:33

worships Allah azza wa jal as if he sees him, as if Allah as it is right in front of him he could see Allah or Allah could see you. He says this only happens because the vicar of Allah and the love of Allah and His fear and his hope is dominant in the heart. That says the most dominant thing because imagine, you are sitting there as if you could see Allah azza wa jal. So that is a very strong

00:44:34--> 00:44:56

connection to him. subhanho wa taala. And if you can see Allah, he could see you, you will love him so much. You fear him so much, you're close that much. It's not possible for you to commit that sin. Right. So with le que ahora Urbina Urbina EuroCity Marcia Foodland Anwar Katya, this would prevent you from wanting to sin, let alone doing it.

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

So even the desire to sin will not be there.

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

Yeah, because the heart is filled with something else. The substance is something else. It's not about this me sin, look me sin, let me do this, let me do that it's thinking about something else. It's observant of something else, not of sin, not the dunya, but the alpha. So that's the person who has a sin alpha, if he exits from the circle of Sn, then the companionship of the select of the few of the best that he will lose, he will lose that he will not be among them, not only that, he will not have it, but he will not be among them. And they're comfortable living and they're happy living meaning because they are close to Allah xojo They're living is a beautiful living. They don't have

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

to be rich.

00:45:48--> 00:45:53

Okay, they don't have to be powerful. But where does this comfortable living come from?

00:45:54--> 00:46:27

It's the living of the heart. Just an average you know, person, okay, doesn't have a lot of money, doesn't have a lot of prestige doesn't have people don't know him, but he's happy. So that happiness comes from a connection to Allah as Urgell he knows I'm content because Allah gives it and if I need something, I'll go to Allah, Allah xojo. Allah opens closed doors. And if I want a door to close where harm comes ALLAH ask Allah and Allah will close him. So it's trust is with Allah has.

00:46:28--> 00:46:47

His destination is with Allah. His hope is with Allah fear of Allah. So that's why his heart is at peace. And if his heart begins to what, lose his peace, he comes back to the Dhikr of Allah, and to his salah, and his peace is restored. So his

00:46:49--> 00:47:11

living is comfortable, it's peaceful, he's happy. So he says, you lose that caliphate either or the law will be higher I mean, even if his exits that if Allah wants the best for him, Allah as the two will put him in that bigger circle of the believers. But if he continues on his sins, and those sins expel him from that circle of the believers,

00:47:12--> 00:47:56

he will lose the company of the faithful, and he has just mentioned the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam lie isn't his zany. Hina isn't evil who will mean the fornicator the adulterer does not commit that while he is a movement. And he does not drink alcohol while he's men and he does not steal while he's men. And he does not usurp rights while he's a movement while people see him while he's a movement for a year come er come beware beware with Toba. Tomorrow, Dalton bad and repentance is still available. So saying that a fornicator does not commit it while a min meaning that that sin will expel you from the circle. Amen. That's the interpretation. It doesn't mean that

00:47:56--> 00:47:57

you become a Kaffir.

00:47:58--> 00:48:04

Okay, so that is a major sin and a major sin like that, unless a person says what? Zina is hella

00:48:06--> 00:48:09

which is far more dangerous than committing Zina.

00:48:10--> 00:48:54

Right. Or if a person says alcohol is halal, which is far more dangerous than drinking alcohol, because then you're opposing Allah and his book and his prophet that is salatu salam, whereas the other is just simply a sin of a weak person. So it says if a person is committing Zina or drinks alcohol or he steals, he exits from that circle of Eman falls into the circle of Islam. He's his Eman is weak. And he says if that's the case, he will lose the company of the believers. And we'll lose Allah's defense because Allah defense defends you when you're a believer in Allah, You da Pharaoh and in the Drina arm and Allah protects and he defends the believers. And that's a complete

00:48:54--> 00:49:09

defense, by the way, right? And it's an interesting idea because the greater your iman remember we said the greater your commitment to Allah azza wa jal the greater your honor. The same thing the greater your Eman, the greater the defense.

00:49:10--> 00:49:19

And the weaker the Eman the weaker the defense. So if you find that Allah has voted is not defending you as much. I don't blame him

00:49:21--> 00:49:23

because the defense is ready. Right.

00:49:24--> 00:49:59

Go back to your iman and increase it and Allah's protection will increase. So same thing if somebody is suffering because of envy. Okay, there's envy or this or there is the harm of the shayateen. Right. So if you want Allah's protection from it, what do you do? You increase your iman and you increase your dhikr and you increase your Quran, but it doesn't stop there. Because there is defense against the disbelievers and their plots against the hypocrites against the whispers of the shaytaan against anything that is harmful in the

00:50:00--> 00:50:28

Law how you Adelphia Ronnie Levine Allah defends the believers See you on the defense from Allah as origin okay, then increase your iman so he says that if he is not of the believers he loses Allah's defense will forget the whole Kulu higher and Raja Hello Vicki Tabby and an EMA and every good thing that Allah had made a consequence of having Eman he will lose that as mentioned in the Quran, and then he starts listing some of these benefits and we'll leave that inshallah

00:50:29--> 00:50:30

to next week but in the last

00:50:33--> 00:50:36

what have they let me know Inshallah, if you have questions.

00:50:39--> 00:50:39

We there

00:50:46--> 00:50:49

anything specific from McLaren Senna, that references

00:50:50--> 00:51:32

nurtures SN, Yanni there's nothing better than with the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said and tagged with Allah and Nick guitarra you worship Allah as if you could see him but if not, then you see him so a person tries to bring himself to that position, meaning Allah is watching me. Allah is watching me. And Allah sees what I'm doing. Allah is listening to what I'm doing a lot is with me Allah is very close to me. So the feel the presence of Allah subhana wa Tada. So the practice of everything and the level of Islam. And then everything on the level of Eman prepares a person for a sin. So everything that is in the Sharia, so taking care of one salah the obligations and taking

00:51:32--> 00:52:10

care of one's will do and taking care of them and taking dhikr of Allah azza wa jal because that all that reminds you of Allah. So it brings kind of the awareness of Allah subhanho wa Taala to you at all times. So the more that you say, Subhan Allah will hamdulillah ADA in Allah Allah Allah, Allah how know Allah hola with the Illa and the rest of the decree of Allah azza wa jal brings Allah's awareness into your heart and brings Allah azza wa jal closer to you and you to him. So they can the salah itself, but while you're doing all of this, to feel that Allah is very close to you, and that Allah is watching you and to feel that while you're doing your Salah during the rest of your EBA and

00:52:10--> 00:52:14

with habits and with the person will reach that level of Sn

00:52:16--> 00:52:16


00:52:37--> 00:53:03

Yes, absolutely. It's like, hey, you know, he's he's saying that he remembers reading that honorable Hatari Allahu Anhu said, the meaning of which is that we were people that Allah has honored us because of Islam. So if we seek honor through anything else, Allah humiliates us. So this is this, this kind of encapsulates what's happening to us today? And the answer is 100%. True. This is it kind of summarizes.

00:53:04--> 00:53:49

So I mean, the funny thing is that we know, kind of the answer. So we sought the solution through nationalism, socialism, communism, capitalism, liberalism, now we're still trying all these things, and they're now working, and we're getting worse and worse and worse because of it. So we ought to really go back to the only thing in our history that made sense that historically was proven to give us honor, which is that adhering to the Quran, and the Sunnah, it was proving it gave us honor, when we left it, we began to lose it and now we got little left of it. So you want more of that Allah as the dual Honorius, as you said, because we will honor Allah's Second Life

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


00:53:55--> 00:54:00

where they have to abandon, like, for example, they think that

00:54:01--> 00:54:03

like something bad happens unless you ask me why

00:54:05--> 00:54:09

they think this thing is a punishment for them. So my question is, when

00:54:10--> 00:54:13

how the tool recovers when the person was affected?

00:54:15--> 00:54:16

So the question is that

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

we're talking about kind of building up the love that we have for Allah as origin, some people have

00:54:24--> 00:54:59

a misjudgment of Allah subhanaw taala when something bad happens to them, they turn and they accuse Allah azza wa jal. Why did that Why did you do that to me in a sense, or maybe Allah is punishing me. So how do we deal with this? So the first thing is to believe that if Allah azza wa jal is testing you kind of to understand the nature of what a test is. If Allah is testing, your bad things are happening to you. It does not mean that Allah hates you. That is the wrong conclusion. It's not like you're interpreting what Allah is doing through human standards. If I HATE YOU

00:55:00--> 00:55:37

I will punish you. If I can, like you, I give you gifts, right? That's how humans behave with each other. So this kind of the dish should be that we're doing Allah behaves like humans do. Allah doesn't behave like this. When we know that Allah azza wa jal that if he loves someone, he will test them. If he wants to wake him up, he will test them. He will give them love them go through trials or afflictions to purify them, wake them up, bring them closer to him. And if Allah really hated you, he would give you more of the dunya so that he would blind you and seal your heart and you would never pay attention to him. So to change perspective and understanding and say, No, it doesn't

00:55:37--> 00:56:11

mean that Allah hates you. It doesn't mean that Allah wants the worst for you. It doesn't mean that Allah has abandoned you, in fact, could be the opposite of all of this that Allah wants to wake you up and bring you closer to Him. Now if you reject these gifts from Allah azza wa jal because you miss understand them, you can blame him Subhana Allah to Allah because we have all of this right explained in the Quran and the Sunnah, but rather look at it as Allah redirecting you refocusing you bringing you back, and then you'll have a better judgment and understanding for Allah is second Allah azza wa jal takes no delight in punishing somebody may have Allah hoga becoming Chica to

00:56:11--> 00:56:22

momento. What would Allah you know, do with your punishment? If you are thankful? And you are believers? Why would he do that for you? So Allah that takes no delight in it, but Allah azza wa jal wants to

00:56:23--> 00:56:42

wake some people up. Or if he wants to punish people, you'll know when he wants to punish that kind of he leaves no space for them to come back. That's their punishment, right? So I think it's if we change perspective and how we see things shall not be easy and show, let me just tackle these we'll come back to inshallah.

00:56:44--> 00:56:53

If a person has good Quran, recitation and memorize the most, but shy to go forward to lead the prayer among the sisters, okay? Is it called higher if not

00:56:54--> 00:57:37

get how to overcome it, it could be higher, especially if it's among the sisters, it could be higher, but don't let higher, right? Let's be able to speak about it in general, don't let higher stop you from doing something beneficial. Now, you could say to yourself, maybe I'm not the best. So I'm not going to propose that I'd be there. And I don't wish to take leadership prominent positions, because I think other people are more qualified. That is humility. And everybody should have it. And you shouldn't assume positions of leadership until you are pushed to them. You don't volunteer, right, except in various kind of exceptional cases, you don't volunteer, so let people push you. So

00:57:37--> 00:58:22

that sister or that brother or anybody else, right? They have humility, they say this is admirable, and keep that humility and keep that higher. But if that humility and that higher, and that's the exception, I want to talk about that humility, and that HIA results in the inept, inadequate, incompetent people occupying that position, then you're at fault for it. So if somebody who does not know how to lead the salah ends up leading the Salah, because you are too shy, you're at fault. So you have then to assume that position and say, No, he's not qualified. It's not arrogance, but come on, it doesn't work here. So if you're among equals, be humble. If somebody can do the job, be

00:58:22--> 00:58:48

humble, have that hire. But if no, a lot of incompetent people are around it, you need to be that person, then you need to be that person. Right? So that's, you feel the responsibility. That's That's how to overcome it. You feel the responsibility and that it could be a sin, it could be okay depending on the situation, how to remedy it, how to remedy to address one of the afflicted with mixing what is good and bad, how to rectify the situation and attain higher.

00:58:51--> 00:59:00

Mixing good and bad meaning that they do good things and bad things how to rectify the situation and attain higher asking Allah azza wa jal for it staying away from sin until

00:59:02--> 00:59:44

you see it as a hateful despicable thing. So if it's difficult, ask Allah for it. If you're doing this and doing that, just keep asking Allah Allah Allah you know, this is wrong. I don't really have higher I'm loving things that you hate. I know that I know I'm living things that you hate. But Allah give me here, give me honor, give me shyness. So I stay away from it and keep making that DUA and keep him make the making that draft for them. If you stay away from something wrong, after some time you will attain or regain that higher, you will not look at it as something normal. But as long as you're practicing it, of course, how could you see it as anything but normal? Or at least you

00:59:44--> 00:59:50

will not have resistance to it? So do maybe and staying away from it. Just the last thing here

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

so it's understood that Islam comes before a man but doesn't there have to be at all

01:00:00--> 01:00:41

is a bit of a demand for Islam to be valid. Yeah. So you're talking here about a man in two different ways. So we must have Iman in the sense of belief and to Amina Billahi, Yanni they must have La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah with this of the shahada must have the basis of EMA that I believe in these things I believe that Salah is obligation I believe that has an obligation so at that basic level, you must have email but that is the man at what a basic level and then Islam is the practice of that basic level of email. The second level of email that we're talking about is what it's an in depth email and it's in depth attachment to it. More than I believe that Salah is an

01:00:41--> 01:01:01

obligation that's the basic but now that EMA no no I need that salah the Salah is from Allah azza wa jal I find my happiness in it, something like that. So it's a stronger attachment. So we call that a stronger EMA. So the basic Eman is there for Islam. But the Imam that is at the higher level is a higher Iman. Right

01:01:09--> 01:01:51

Okay, good. So now that question is a good question. Is it a sunnah to put your hoodie on in the prayer? Right? So that's a good a good question. So it goes back to you to is it sunnah to cover your head in the Salah or not? Right? So there's nothing in the Quran that says it's sunnah. Nothing direct in this in the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam that said it's sunnah. But some of it 100 M have said what it was the habit of Muslims. Okay, at the time of Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam and the Sahaba and so on and so on, that they would not exit their home without covering their head. So some of them have said, we're not going to call it a sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu

01:01:51--> 01:02:22

salam, but it's the habit or the Sunnah of the Muslims, that it's more honorable, and aim fuller dress, right? To cover your head. But at the same time, we can't say that it is a sin, or it's disliked or takes away from the Salah, if your head is not covered, so you have an option you could cover or you can uncover. And the interesting thing Subhanallah is that it was the habit of Muslims right, still relatively recently, to have their heads covered.

01:02:23--> 01:03:03

It's really the habits of Muslims. The only maybe exception I know of, and I don't claim to know a lot. The people have an endless incidence. Interestingly, the people of all the western side of Islam, the people of endless under Lucia, they didn't cover it have that habit of covering their head, Jesus didn't have it, but the rest of Muslims till the Ottomans and in the Ottomans, right. And there was this issue with the Ottomans when they wanted to westernize so people already had the turbans so they wanted to change the turban to the fez. And the fez was a mark of westernization. And they wanted to do that just to kind of to change the culture, you know, have they've changed the

01:03:03--> 01:03:19

alphabet in the Turkish language from the Arabic alphabet into the English alphabet just to westernize and distance people from their past the same thing replace the turban with the fez, so it was kind of a movement to do this. So even when people would the Pharisee wouldn't like be

01:03:20--> 01:03:31

well dressed person leaving your house without something on your head and then we lost all of it. So it's a custom right if you want to cover your head because you feel it's better in the Sunnah my own means you could do that

01:03:37--> 01:03:39

the humbleness

01:03:42--> 01:03:44

itself a lot

01:03:45--> 01:03:49

of a lot of few years ago, I had a car accident.

01:03:51--> 01:03:52

It is so much pain

01:03:54--> 01:04:04

in my back in my neck depends upon the law. While I'm chillin brothers, the only position that I have been in his position

01:04:05--> 01:04:13

everything else kind of off. So that was like almost like an invitation to extend my schedule. I know that the other thing is

01:04:15--> 01:04:30

somebody said half of it, which is how to preserve or build higher ribbon. And the answer was abstain from since then eventually, you know, you will build that community

01:04:32--> 01:04:33

the longest time

01:04:34--> 01:04:36

how can we promote higher ed

01:04:38--> 01:04:42

in our surrounding? Because if we don't

01:04:44--> 01:04:59

you know some of the passage cloth that we do as muslims is pulling off as long as myself from my house and my family want to go in everything's gonna be good, but no, you have to. There has to be some sort of outcome that's probably bought

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


01:05:01--> 01:05:11

we have to work outwards, otherwise, it's going to collapse over us. So how do we, how do you suggest or recommend a wise

01:05:14--> 01:05:17

way for us to promote How to

01:05:19--> 01:05:19


01:05:22--> 01:05:23


01:05:24--> 01:05:27

So the question is how do we promote higher

01:05:29--> 01:06:10

among other people? So there's, you know, ways that as the question the previous question as for this, or ways to increase higher, internally in ourselves personally, but how do we promote higher around us, especially that if you're simply content with only fixing yourself and your family, and you consider that to be enough, eventually, right? That is going to collapse all over you, because society is not going to be content to leave you alone, right? Even if you say, I'm just going to protect myself, society will come and try to change you. So if you don't try to change it, society is changing you. So first of all, Allah and um, how do you promote higher around you is, first is

01:06:10--> 01:06:14

the spread of knowledge itself, for people to know that this is wrong.

01:06:15--> 01:06:53

And it could just simply be a neutral transmission of that knowledge, there is this idea, there is this hadith, lower your gaze, it says this, and you simply share, let's say you're on social media, or you're talking to people, you're supposed to lower your gaze so men not don't look at women, woman don't look at men, and Subhanallah, how we overlook this, when we're watching the news or watching commercials, we don't pay attention to the fact we are looking at other men or other women, that would be forbidden. So transmission of that knowledge. Or if a woman does this, or oh man does that. So if we know first that it is wrong, then we can do something about it, the issue is that we

01:06:53--> 01:07:33

sometimes don't know that these things are wrong, or we're not aware, we're not being reminded. Once we know right, then we have to start kind of actively reminding people, Hey, this is wrong, and maybe not in a personal way. But in a general way, a lot of Muslims do say, you can say a lot of Muslims do this, and we should pay attention to it. A lot of Muslims take these types of pictures, take T these types of videos, speak in those ways, they leave this house this way, they mingle in that way, and that is wrong. So when you talk about it generally, and it reaches more people than they will understand that I'm doing something wrong, and I'm lacking a part of higher. So if there

01:07:33--> 01:08:13

is knowledge, and then there is condemnation of it, but in a general sense, then a lot of more people will be aware of that the final stage, if that is to address it, specifically, what you're doing is wrong, what you're doing is wrong, whenever that is beneficial. But if you try one and we try to and we keep insisting on to, eventually Insha Allah, any enough people at least will be aware and they will start noticing that what they're doing is wrong, especially when they come back. And they say no, it's not wrong, or yes, it's wrong, but then you engage in a conversation with them because they invited that conversation. And that is a form of data with them, right? But imagine

01:08:13--> 01:08:28

also at the same time, you're going to be patient with them because all the outside forces are telling them it's okay like compared to what rest of society is doing. A their angels, right? But it's not good enough compared to what Allah azza wa jal wants

01:08:32--> 01:08:33

Muslim and non Muslim

01:08:37--> 01:08:38

Muslim Muslims,

01:08:40--> 01:08:42

which might be in some cases

01:08:44--> 01:08:49

a year in submitting because of a cold, cold, and some of them are actually

01:08:52--> 01:08:53


01:08:57--> 01:08:58

Sometimes they just back off

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

I don't know anything about religious

01:09:04--> 01:09:07

debate this, but my question really is about

01:09:09--> 01:09:20

the society if it includes if it includes non Muslims, you can begin with higher because there is no foundation to it. You have to begin with, as you said last time with toe heat

01:09:22--> 01:09:37

or somebody else, right. So you have to begin with the head but talking about HYAH it's kind of incomprehensible, right? What is the foundation has to be kind of Allah azza wa jal And if Allah is there, and the Prophet is there, then there's right and wrong

01:09:42--> 01:09:46

situations once our work in

01:09:47--> 01:09:59

corporate settings, and we actually have a dress code, but I used to take my restaurant out until my manager literally came and told me that

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

For sure. And because

01:10:05--> 01:10:21

I knew what I'm doing, but I didn't have the wisdom coming out of my mouth. So right away, I know, I want to display my behind to the world. I don't want to I said, I don't want to showcase my behind to the world that you very much like that. I don't think this was

01:10:23--> 01:10:32

I don't think this achieved anything except to stone that you guys are, you know, slots? I don't think I can. But I don't know,

01:10:33--> 01:10:39

a similar situation in the gym. We're Oh, well, what we have quantities of yoga? I don't

01:10:41--> 01:10:43

know. Thank you. I'm not confused about

01:10:45--> 01:10:47

you know, that's the message.

01:10:48--> 01:11:04

The content is That's it. But the delivery? No, I mean, the delivery doesn't need to be confrontational, right? Or degrading, like, I'm gonna say that to degrade you right and display my superiority to you. It doesn't need to be like that.

01:11:10--> 01:11:42

I mean, you could take it back to. I mean, no, I can be good because God commanded us to be humble. And part of humility is to not to display ostentatious. pneus. Right. So the less that you attract attention to yourself, the better you are, the better your soul is. And if you talk like that, which is about yourself, it's not about them, but about how you're supposed to be connected to the Divine and a higher power, and it has meaning. So it's not really combative, when you say it like that.

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


01:11:46--> 01:12:27

you have go, oh, somebody added a question. So maybe I have it. Okay. Okay. I got it. I recently heard that there is a difference of opinion on whether the jail will be punished in Africa or if he won't, because he didn't have a choice in becoming the judge. May you elaborate. So no, of course at the jail had a choice. It's not that Allah azza wa jal had compelled him. But Allah had tested him with that power, and he chose to do with it, the most wicked of things. So at the jail is a disobedient, how could a person who claims to be a prophet than to claim to be God, then kill people because they refuse to believe in him not be punished in the hereafter. So he will be punished in

01:12:27--> 01:12:44

the hereafter and he is disobedient and Isa will kill him. It's not like ASA will come and say, you know, by the way, you are forgiven or by way you just fulfill your duty and now you're free. No, he is guilty of all of that and he had a choice so the jail should be punished. In the actual

01:12:46--> 01:12:57

are we do have anything else? Should we let you go? Flavored hamdulillah Subhanallah We have Nick I shadow Allah and stuff to where they could humble Santa Monica.
