Personally, you've heard a tick,

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

a mobile ad.

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

So hamdulillah we've

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

covered in the first lecture.

00:00:11--> 00:00:44

And you'll always can go back to it in case somebody's just joining us today. You can always go back to it insha Allah and find out what was said about the author and the book. And the question that prompted it. And what if no claim Rahim Allah said in response to it in terms of medicine in the cure and the best of medicine, and we talked about the Quran, then we started to talk about Doha. And that's where we're at at this moment. We're still talking about Dubai.

00:00:46--> 00:00:48

And even though claim Rahim Allah

00:00:50--> 00:00:58

emphasizing what we talked about last time, and what he wrote, he says, What do I mean unfiled adware

00:00:59--> 00:01:12

right, he says a dua is of the best of medicines. Well, who I do rubella II and it is the antithesis or the enemy or the opposite of affliction.

00:01:13--> 00:01:59

See, to keep it in mind, right? That's what is the opposite of affliction? He says do because what takes it away as we will understand what takes it away? What removes it? What alleviates it, it's doing so if anyone is afflicted with ever to whatever type of affliction that may be, which is physical, non physical, do as your companion should be and die should be the weapon that you use to combat all types of affliction. So he says, You Delphia Oh, well you actually do home No, no Zulu man, meaning that dua pushes it away, pushes affliction away and fights with it, and also prevents it from descending while you're far away. Oh, you have people who either nuzzle or if it descends if

00:01:59--> 00:02:04

it's actually in place. What it does is that it removes it or it

00:02:05--> 00:02:08

decreases its intensity, alleviates it

00:02:09--> 00:02:14

and he says well who was sila who and movement and it is the weapon of the believer.

00:02:15--> 00:02:21

Then he also said Rahima hula hula hula mal Bella ethos or Muhammad.

00:02:22--> 00:02:40

There is if you want to think about DUA and in terms of what it does with affliction is that there are three possibilities with it. One any Hakuna Aqua Minal Bella if I had fell, meaning first is that dua is stronger than the affliction. So what happens? Who wins?

00:02:42--> 00:02:51

Dua dua is stronger than affliction than Darwin's. Okay. The second is that dua is weaker than affliction.

00:02:52--> 00:03:27

For Jaqua Allah heal better or for your soul will be healed, Abdullah can hurt you hurt people who are in Canada, Eva. So the second is that dua is weaker than the affliction. So Bella is stronger. And because Bella is stronger, you will feel it. The affliction is stronger than the DUA. So you will get the affliction you will get the calamity, the DA is not as strong. But it could decrease its intensity, it could alleviate the suffering. It's not as strong. Okay. So that even at that point, even when it's weak, it's beneficial.

00:03:28--> 00:03:53

Right? And we understood why it could be weak, right? And we'll understand again, why it will be weak. But even when do is weak, it's still strong enough that it will do something to the affliction and calamity and the problem that you're facing, whatever problem that may be. Okay, or he says the third possibility. The third scenario is that a Yetta, Kawamoto coolamon, Homosassa Haibo,

00:03:54--> 00:04:25

that they would be fighting with each other and they would equalize and neutralize each other. Right? That's what happens. So either it's strong girl than the calamity or the problem, or it's weaker than the problem or it's as strong as the problem so they will keep fighting and struggling with each other. And he says here, there's a Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam that he brings for support here he said, Rahim Oh la la yovani meaning that Rasul Allah is Allah He was hitting him said la you when he had our own mill Kedah.

00:04:26--> 00:04:30

Know caution, can't protect you from Destiny.

00:04:32--> 00:04:45

What do I owe infomine, Minnesota Wynnum. When we murder me and zeal and do our works and benefits you with what is happening, the affliction or the problem that is happening or what has not happened yet.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

Okay, the third part here of the dua to Allah Allah NZ that affliction or a problem descends and it fights with the DUA. That plus part may not be authentic or very strong, but the first two parts

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

of the DUA. They are. So the first one is Leonie Heather Roman kadar.

00:05:06--> 00:05:33

What does that mean? It's important to understand it, even if even if so briefly so that you don't miss understand what the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is saying, that is whatever caution or precaution you take, is not going to save you from Allah's destiny. We believe that right? Now, does that mean so that we just avoid a misunderstanding? That is not does that mean that you ought not to be cautious in your life? Or that cautious is

00:05:37--> 00:05:43

I able to protect you ineffectual at all times.

00:05:44--> 00:06:17

He says No caution is necessary. Right? Caution is necessary. So you put your seatbelt on right. So why you do this so that it can protect you. Right? And you don't say I will rely on Allah as destiny. So then that way I will not put to do anything because I believe in Allah is destiny, meaning that if Allah wants it to be it was going to happen If Allah doesn't want it's going to going to happen whatever I do, is ineffective, in producing an effect or removing it. So is that type of caution

00:06:19--> 00:07:03

right or wrong, is say, what the prophets Allah Allah wa Salam is saying, and his urging is what that if Allah Who wants something to happen, is going to happen regardless of whatever you do. So whatever precautions you take, don't believe that these are the things on their own that are gonna protect you. They are means and Allah azza wa jal may allow these means to function or may invalidate these means and you will die anyway or will be afflicted anyway or be injured anyway. So the outcome depends on Allah azza wa jal, but does that mean that in the process while I do not know what the outcome is, I don't know what Allah's decree is. I shouldn't take any precaution. We say

00:07:03--> 00:07:12

no, that's not what the Prophet sallallahu wasallam has said. So when the Prophet sallahu wa salam would go to battle, would he would he go to, to battle without arms?

00:07:13--> 00:08:00

Without an armor? Right? Would he have traveled salatu salam would he not travel on an animal? All these are means right. So no precaution is necessary and you should take it. But understand that if Allah decides otherwise, it's not going to help. So that's what the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is saying here. Now you only had the Roman Kadar would do our orient for me man so that when we mela Mian Xin and that benefits you and helps you with things that have happened and things that have not happened yet, mean it protects you from things that did not descend yet from an illness from an accident from a fitna temptation from a doubt all of these things. So when you make dua.

00:08:02--> 00:08:48

It preemptively, preemptively helps you. So it's important. It shouldn't wait till you're in trouble and only make dua so preemptively keep making and asking Allah azza wa jal for protection from Phaeton, from protection for your self and your family, for clarity and religion for all the things that you want, so that you don't have to wait until they happen. And if something happens, and always something has to happen, because this is life, you can't see yourself with dua, I will protect myself from every unpleasant thing in life, that cannot happen, some unpleasantness has to take place. So when it happens, do I then either removes it or equalizes it or at least alleviate

00:08:48--> 00:08:51

some of the pain and some of the trouble that is in it.

00:08:52--> 00:08:54

And that is the next Hadith says exactly

00:08:56--> 00:09:12

the same DUA and follow me Minnesota when we Mala music for Alikum Eva de la EBIT, da da benefits with what had descended what has happened or has not happened yet. So adhere Oh servants of Allah to do mean continuously make that DUA

00:09:13--> 00:09:24

and there is a second the other Hadith that he quotes Rahima Hola. Hola. Hola. Yo Katara Illa dua, the only thing that pushes away destiny is to

00:09:25--> 00:09:59

write wala Z to fill Ohmori il beer, and nothing increases in one's age except righteousness. We're in a radula Johan Morris club with them be you'll see whoo hoo. And indeed a person could be denied provisions because of a sin that he earns. Right? That last part of the hadith of a sentence. Okay, so the amount of Hadith in dispute, its authenticity may be strong and may be weak, right? Some say it's okay. Some say it's weak, right? But let's focus on the first two. The only thing that repels Kadar is what

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

The see do right, and he'll be talking insha Allah about DUA and its relationship to Khadir. Right. But for now we will say that when you are making dua

00:10:13--> 00:10:21

that is also part of other, Allah knows it. So with the Hadith says that if something Allah azza wa jal had decreed, and it's going to happen.

00:10:22--> 00:10:44

Part of Allah's decree would be that when you make dua, your DUA would remove it would stop it, even from descending at times, or if it descended, it removes it, or decreases. So your DUA can compete with Allah's command, but your DUA

00:10:45--> 00:11:31

is part of other. It's not outside of it. Right? Because nothing that happens in the world is outside of Alaska. So all of your actions are in Allah SCADA as well. But here the Prophet saw he was saying he wants to motivate you and say, if there is something around, that you were having problems with trouble with, that Allah had sent your way, or somebody human being had caused, but it also he caused because it's also part of Alaska, what do you do? Can you fight back? They say, yeah, you can? No, how do you do that? With dua? So the DUA is your assistant, dA is your weapon that you could always use? Hello, yeah, Lola, is you do filmora, in that bear righteousness is the only thing

00:11:31--> 00:11:40

that adds to your age. Right? And again, briefly, what does that mean? Right? Either, it adds to the baraka.

00:11:41--> 00:11:58

Right? So you're just destined to live X number of years. But if Allah puts Baraka in them would be as if you've lived longer, and if not, as if you've lived shorter. So one interpretation of it is that the baraka is added because of righteousness. Right?

00:11:59--> 00:12:00


00:12:01--> 00:12:09

that because of your righteousness, Allah zodion actually extends your life. That's a path and again, it's part of Alaska.

00:12:10--> 00:12:15

And he knows that so and so. If He's righteous, He lives still he's 80.

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

And if he's not, he lives still he's 60.

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

And Allah knows which one you're going to do.

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

Right? So that's what it is.

00:12:28--> 00:12:56

And then he said, Rahim, Allah Allah wa Amin and file a dua T al Hafi dua, and of the best or most beneficial medicine is insistence in Doha. And this is something that we may not be aware of, or if we are aware, aware of we don't really use it. It's not just simply to say, Yeah, Allah give me your Allah protect me, but to do what insistence to persevere, and to keep making it with urgency,

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

with determination, and we hope that Allah has voted is the only one who could do this. And you need this because your life depends on it that says to plead with desperation.

00:13:15--> 00:13:18

So he said, sallallahu alayhi wa salam,

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

malaria Salallahu Alaihe.

00:13:23--> 00:13:28

He says, If someone does not ask Allah azza wa jal, Allah will be angry with him.

00:13:29--> 00:13:47

Right? Now think to yourself, why is it that the prophets Allah Allah wa sallam said this about Allah azza wa jal? Why is he informing us? Because on the one hand, you want to avoid Allah's Anger? So if you ask Allah, Allah will be pleased with you. If you don't ask Allah, then Allah will be what?

00:13:48--> 00:13:52

angry with you? Why would he be angry with you when you don't ask him think about it?

00:13:54--> 00:14:32

Right? Because in your feelings about humanity, and human beings in general, we're the total opposite of this. If you don't ask us, we'll be what? Happy with you. But if you ask us, we will be what? angry or frustrated with you? So we're the complete opposite. But do you find that most of us most human beings, when we want to ask we asked humans, the ones who don't want to be asked? And the ones who get very frustrated and irritated when they get asked, and the ones who don't give you what you want, or they don't give it in full? So we go to the poorest and we ask them, and we make them angry with us.

00:14:33--> 00:14:47

Tell you, why is it that Allah azza wa jal is the opposite of humanity. That he is pleased when you ask him angry when you don't ask him? Well, for one, I'll give you one poor part of the answer is Allah has everything

00:14:48--> 00:14:54

and nothing exhausts what Allah has so if he gives you it doesn't decrease from his

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

treasuries, okay, what Allah azza wa jal has humanity on the other

00:15:00--> 00:15:22

Know if I give you something, it goes down. So that's because our stinginess comes from the fact that we're always in need. So that's one thing. But why is it that if you don't ask Allah Allah so that he becomes angry with you? Because we don't understand that? Why do I Why is that important as a medicine? And while leaving it in a sore, an illness

00:15:23--> 00:15:37

is not just simply a neutral act when you don't make dua. It's not in your being neutral. You neither good nor bad? No, when you don't make dua there is now an illness. Right? What is that illness?

00:15:38--> 00:15:41

Is that as a human being, you always have to ask,

00:15:42--> 00:15:54

because you're always in need. Right? So you still have to look at yourself every single day, you have to ask somebody for something. Can you help me with this? I need advice with that. Not that it is wrong.

00:15:55--> 00:16:05

But the fact that we need as a human being we need we're always constantly asking. So if you're not asking Allah, Who are you asking somebody else.

00:16:06--> 00:16:51

And then, and then as a consequence, you're relying on and trusting and submitting and surrendering to somebody else. And that's why Allah Azza becomes angry with you. So lack of dua is a shortcoming is an illness that needs to be treated. So you don't only make dua simply because I'm in need, meaning I'm in trouble. So I need to make dua, you need to make dua because you consistently need to be connected to Allah azza wa jal and free yourself on dependence on people. So do I helps you with this? I'm going through a problem now. What do I need to be the first thought that should come to your head is I need Allah let me ask him, before you say I need to talk to so and so. Or I need to

00:16:51--> 00:17:30

go out and have some fun or I need to drink something or eat something, all these secondary mood enhancement, right? Or you know, much less I need to take a medicine to alter my mood. Right? Before you want to say I want to take your medicine you say to yourself, I need to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala and surrender to Him and make dua the platform for me to ask and receive change, not through somebody else but through Allah azza wa jal. So that's why Doha is important. So if you don't ask Allah azza wa jal, Allah becomes angry with you.

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

And there is a there's a

00:17:38--> 00:18:29

hadith here but that hadith is, is weak in Allah hibel Mahina feed dua that Allah azza wa jal loves those who are insistent in their dua, that that is weak, but there is a Athar from an Oza era Hema hula when he said a fedora dua E L who Allah Allahu wa Tada ro E. He says Allah dua II The Best of dua is ill ha who Allah Allah He meaning insistent, to be insistent upon Allah azza wa jal meaning give me give me give me to keep doing that. What tadagra Are they here and pleading with him? That is the best of dua This enhances your DUA. Right? So that's an ethyl from an Ze, or Hema, hola and if no claim is going to emphasize this, that's one of the ways that you could upgrade let's call it

00:18:29--> 00:19:09

upgrade or improve or strengthen your DUA is with insistence and also with pleading to keep pleading. And in Kitab azote he quotes a Lima Muhammad Rahim Allah that more Rick said, and this is one of the self he said Maota to the mini masala I says the example of the believer I that I find the closest example Ihlara Jhulan Phil bahariya Allah Shiva is is a man at sea, you know, floating on a piece of wood for Hawaii Edo era BRB, Illa, Allah Allah and Yun Jia so he is pleading with Allah here are br rub, hoping that Allah will save him

00:19:11--> 00:19:41

says he has severed all connections, right? To help assistance, and he's alone at sea. And he's about to die. And the only one who's left who could help is Allah Zoda to say you imagine how insistent and how pleading, he would be with Allah subhanho wa Taala to save him, desperate of every other help, except the help of Allah zodion

00:19:42--> 00:19:51

and reliant on no one else except Allah including himself, because he can't help himself. So we'll see if some person gives up

00:19:53--> 00:19:53

that hope

00:19:54--> 00:20:00

and trust Allah subhanho wa Taala in completion and if someone is desperate in

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

enough that he directs all of his attention to Allah azza wa jal with such an intensity and that is the dua that Allah azza wa jal loves. So you imagine yourself every time that you're making dua, that you're at sea floating on a piece of wood with no one to help and it's dark and it's cold, and you expect death. What type of dua would you give to Allah azza wa jal?

00:20:22--> 00:20:38

What is the need that you can express? That is as much need that you have, every time you're asking Allah azza wa jal, but be but you are being deluded by because you have things around you, that trick you in thinking that they can help.

00:20:39--> 00:21:16

But they can't. But if you really, really think about it, like at this moment, you say I could rely on my vehicle, I could rely on my parents, I could rely on my money, I could rely on all of these things. But if you think that all of these things are illusions, meaning they cannot help you, and the only one who can always help you all the time, the only one is Allah azza wa jal, meaning that in effect, you're like that person at sea holding on to something that is barely keeping you alive. And Allah is the one who can save you. Then whatever you want to do, you will feel that nothing helps except Allah.

00:21:17--> 00:21:52

Even me, but nothing helps. Except Allah azza wa jal, so it's not my vehicle, although it exists, but it's not that my vehicle or it's not my money, or it's not so unsold, or it's not my power. I'm not doing anything of my own, from my own Allah azza wa jal in every step, he is the one who is assisting me. Everything else is secondary, right? As if it is illusion, an illusion. And I'm not saying that it's an illusion, but I'm saying as if it's an illusion as if it does not exist, compared to the might of Allah azza wa jal, and his wisdom and what he can do.

00:21:54--> 00:22:17

So the more that you pray like this, the more that you approach Allah like that, with that type of desperation, and intensity, and emotion, the more that Allah Azza did will accept your DUA, but a person who makes a dua carelessly, okay. Without attention, and without commitment is the heart will be weaker.

00:22:21--> 00:23:10

And he said here, women will fit in he moves on to something that weakens the DUA and in fact, could stop it from being accepted, will mean an F Atilla t turn now to bathala Dua, Allah he says, of the flaws and of the problems that would stop the consequence of dua, meaning the acceptance of dua called a new strategy to do that. The servant of Allah who would be hasty while you're stopped the l e. Java, and will feel that he's not being answered quick enough for your stencil. Why a da da. So he stops and he lets go of dua, meaning you make dua and then you make do and then at one point, you decide nothing is happening. So you get tired and then you stop and you stop making dua. Hello happy

00:23:10--> 00:23:56

men Zilla T says this is like what is going to bring you an example here that you know hopefully could make sense will hold women Zita T men better Rabindranath Hora serverside says if you saw a seed, or put a seedling a small plant, and you put it in the soil, for Allahu Allah Yatta I heard the hallway asleep. And he continued to take care of it, putting water, grooming it, making sure that it has the conditions to grow. So that's what you're waiting for. Let me stop the camera Allah who were Iraqi who Taraka Hua Mala, it says, But when he saw that it was taking too long for it to grow, or to reach Complete Completion. He lifted it and neglected it. So what happens to it?

00:23:59--> 00:24:01

The dice, it doesn't grow or a dice.

00:24:02--> 00:24:26

So in the same way, you're saying this dude needs to be nurtured and needs time to grow. And he says a few become impatient with it, and let go of it. It would die out or will not bring you what you want, just like that plant. So he said, to confirm this. He said that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said, use the Jabalia. Hajikko Mala Mia gel.

00:24:27--> 00:24:38

It says you will be answered as long as you're not hasty. You have Kulu he says, meaning expressing that haste, the out to fellow Musa Jubliee I prayed but I wasn't answered.

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

Follow a few Sahih Muslim

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

messengers a lot he was salam said they as I lose the job will Abdi Malamute ob ethminer RT RT Rahim. malamutes Daljit. It says you will continue to be answered in your DUA has been accepted. You receive what you're asking for as long as you're not asking for If so,

00:25:00--> 00:25:26

Sin. I'll tell you how to Rahim or severance of kinship or you're not hasty. On impatient. He said, O Messenger of Allah, what is this impatience and haste. He said, Allah is Salatu was Salam. He says he will say, a Dao to a Dao to I prayed and I prayed for them Allah use touchably I do not see that I'm being answered for your staff sudo in the Dalek, he stops asking at that point, and let's go over to her right.

00:25:30--> 00:25:36

And what he this hadith in particular Hadith He Allah is to use the juggler Abdi tells you about things that

00:25:38--> 00:25:42

do not get accepted. So one if you're asking for sin,

00:25:43--> 00:25:53

typically, typically that does not get accepted or some exceptions, but typically that does not get accepted. Now, if you're asking for a sin, do you sin?

00:25:55--> 00:26:16

Let's let's just answer that very quickly. Yes. So if you're asking for a sin usin, right. You're asking for somebody's disruptions, and they say it is out of the normal. Yeah, do I know bonamy Hattah. You'll see Halima? A says the one who is experienced injustice will continue to make dua against the wrong door until he becomes

00:26:17--> 00:26:22

what the wrongdoer right, you follow.

00:26:23--> 00:26:29

So that the fact that you've been wronged does not give you the license to say whatever you want.

00:26:31--> 00:26:35

Because when you ask Allah azza wa jal, you're taking some of your rights back by the way,

00:26:36--> 00:27:01

I hear ya Allah, do this to him, do this to him do this to him, you're taking some of your rights. But if you exceed, you become the wrongdoer. So pay attention to this right because sometimes we are emotionally blinded by our suffering, that we just pray whatever, no, you're you are responsible for it. Because they I tell him, sufferings of kinship. Okay, that does not get answered. Okay.

00:27:03--> 00:27:11

Mattamy a strategy, that's another thing that will stop you. Meaning it does not get answered and the Prophet sallahu wa salam explained it for you.

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


00:27:15--> 00:27:16

first of all,

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

what is the thing that stops the DA from being accepted here? Is it simply stopping making dua or saying also, I prayed and prayed? And I don't see an answer.

00:27:29--> 00:28:01

Looking at the a hadith, both of them, and each of them could stop it. So whether you stop making a DUA, meaning that you say or you feel my dua is ineffective, so I'll stop. So you stop, that on its own is a reason for them not to be answered. Or you say and you express that sentiment by saying I prayed and I prayed and I don't see my dua being accepted. Because what does that explain? Or what is that reflect? What type of attitude

00:28:02--> 00:28:05

not humility before the Creator but entitlement

00:28:06--> 00:28:07

that you've done everything?

00:28:09--> 00:28:59

And Allah azza wa jal somehow is shortchanging you, or God forbid, not doing his part because I did my part. Now, where are you? Right? But isn't that the sentiment? I didn't my part, I pray, where are you? Because you're supposed to respond to me. So a it seems transactional. I prayed. And I fasted and I said, and now it's your turn. That's one. So it's not a relationship from a servant to a master, or a servant to a king, but almost equal, I did and the Indian did give me second it expresses an impatience because then you want Allah azza wa jal to add on your own schedule and time not his but your own, I need it now this needs to happen now. Right. Now, if the attitude of the

00:28:59--> 00:29:18

modern person today is lack of patience, like I want it then I want it now. So if you are at the grocery store, or a supermarket standing at the checkout, you know, lean with your with your merchandise and your money. You could be extremely patient at

00:29:19--> 00:29:27

the workers at the cashier, well, I need to leave right now I have my money and I need to pay and I need to leave. Why? Because you're entitled.

00:29:29--> 00:29:36

Can you let alone by whether it's good manners or bad manners, but you feel entitled because that's my money. I'm here to pay and leave.

00:29:37--> 00:29:46

So you feel that you they owe you that service. But asking Allah Zoda does not like shopping at a grocery store

00:29:48--> 00:30:00

or a supermarket or buying your favorite brand. I want this and I want it now. You're asking Allah azza wa jal for things that lie beyond your ability or any other human ability.

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

tea, and you do not know if they are good for you or not. And you do not know when they are good for you or not.

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


00:30:11--> 00:30:28

And in addition also, and let's use, so that we understand this maybe a little bit better or deeper, let's use a little bit of psychology if we could borrow from them a little bit. So suppose that you're going to a counselor, or a therapist.

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

And you're sitting and you're discussing your problems, I have this issue, and I have this issue and I have that

00:30:36--> 00:30:38

what are they tried to do when they listen to you?

00:30:40--> 00:31:02

They try to guide you right towards a solution. Right? So they tell you, you need to do this. And you need to avoid that. You need to stop the way that you talk to yourself. The way that you see things in the world, you need to stop this and look at things and events in your life past present future in a new way.

00:31:04--> 00:31:11

What they're trying to do with you, right, if they're good is to try to change you

00:31:12--> 00:31:13

change who you are right?

00:31:14--> 00:31:51

Change the self that had come and say, and said, I am suffering, I have problems helped me save the demon and they find out that your help has to pass through a change a transformation of the self, then they will ask you to change in order to be healed in order to deal with your problems. If you cannot change, you'll be continued to pre produce your problems. Does that make sense? So you need to change. So does that happen in one session or two or three or four it takes time

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

play what is the important or the most important part of dua, by the way is for you to get what you asked for

00:32:02--> 00:32:04

or is there something else that is greater?

00:32:11--> 00:32:12

It is the transformation

00:32:14--> 00:32:16

not the thing not getting the thing.

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

It is the transformation

00:32:19--> 00:32:26

that is there is to abode there is a worship of Allah Zota taking place when you're making dua.

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

There is a Tober

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

Okay, there is humility.

00:32:34--> 00:32:37

And Allah azza wa jal if he delays that

00:32:38--> 00:32:46

he's giving you time to transform through that dua to be able to receive what you want from him Subhanallah with that,

00:32:47--> 00:33:02

right. So if we can borrow and say, when you make dua, you're entering the divine clinic, bus, just borrow that allow me please, entering the divine clinic, when you enter the divine clinic, you need to be transformed.

00:33:03--> 00:33:37

For some, Allah Azza will say here, you could take this immediately. For others, they will say, No, you won't be able to handle this now. Because you're still the same person. If I give it to you, you'll squander it. You're not appreciated, you'll be tired of it, or it's not good for you and you need to change for this to be good for you or something else is better, but you cannot see it, you cannot see it you understand that you cannot see that something else is better. How am I make gonna make you see that something else is better, until I change you.

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

So he holds it back.

00:33:41--> 00:33:49

So if you become so impatient, you've lost your therapy, and counseling and you said I'm tired, I went there two times nothing changed.

00:33:51--> 00:34:11

Well, if this is your timeline, then nothing will change. But if you say to yourself, think about it, how long did it take for this problem, to to accumulate, to happen to grow? Is it a matter of month or months or years?

00:34:12--> 00:34:21

Then you have to be patient until that transformation happens. So Allah azza wa jal does not hold back because he Subhana what Allah is unable,

00:34:22--> 00:34:42

Allah azza wa jal holds back because there is a transformation that you have to go through. And then you will discover and this is something you'll pay him said somewhere else. He said, that you will discover that there is something far more precious than the thing that you're asking for. Allah brings you to him through the dunya to take you to the healer.

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

Yeah, Allah, I want more money, I want to get married. I want kids I want all of these things. And the only thing that you can see when you're asking for all of these things, is the worldly thing that you want. And they are legitimate as a desire. But there is another layer behind it, which is Allah had

00:35:00--> 00:35:28

created in you the need for the dunya. So that you would cross into the Alpha era. Right? So LSR, meaning stopping your DUA is an alpha, as he said is a problem. And the medicine to that is who believed that Allah is always listening. And Allah is the most generous, and Allah wants you to keep making that dua until Allah azza wa jal gives that to you.

00:35:29--> 00:35:43

Right? Whether you're asking in particular or you're asking in general, that's something else. But Allah wants you to keep making that dua. So don't fall into the pitfall of a made dua. And then what?

00:35:45--> 00:35:47

Because you may need a year

00:35:48--> 00:36:12

or five, or 10 and Allah knows best, depending on the weight of what you're asking, right? And how beneficial it is. But keep asking Allah azza wa jal because as long as you're asking, you'll always be hopeful that Allah azza wa jal will answer you. The problem is when you stop as long as you're asking, you're always connected.

00:36:13--> 00:36:16

And the aid of Allah Zoda is right

00:36:17--> 00:36:23

around the corner, right around the corner, right. And that is in itself an amo of Allah azza wa jal.

00:36:25--> 00:37:01

Then he said, Rahim, Allah who are either Jumia or what either Gemma I do, it says if the DUA combines and he is now going to tell you about the things that make the DUA strong and accepted. Okay? So listen to them, because if anyone has ever asked you or if ever you've asked yourself, how can I enhance my dua? Here's the answer. So kind of highlight it, underline it, write it down, share it so that everybody would know you want to enhance your DUA. Here's what I am Rahimullah is saying for either Jim or either Jim.

00:37:03--> 00:37:27

The first, Fedora kalbi, whichever you get to be qulaity Allen Matsu meaning that presence of the heart that the heart is completely united behind what its wants meaning all of your heart is making to your heart is present. Like as we said, like your life depends on it to Allah I am here please give me this plead with him. So that's the one. Well saw the Lockton man Oh okatie EGR. But he says

00:37:28--> 00:37:37

and he says it coincides with or it agrees with or it happens at the time. When do I is accepted and he named six times.

00:37:38--> 00:38:03

So now you're choosing the time we're here. A fulfill led Mina lane is the last third of the night. We're in Del Adani at the time of the turn, then between a Dan and karma then after the obligatory prayers, and then he says and then formed when the Imam ascends to the mimbar okay until the Salah is over.

00:38:04--> 00:38:49

What if you Russa it in the last three and the last hour after us or on a Friday? These are the times that he mentioned Rahima Hola, so I'll repeat them. Right? So what are they again? The last third of the night? Why the last third of the night? Because Allah Azza descends to the lowest sky and he asks people, whoever wants something from me asked me so if you know somebody who's in trouble or you are in trouble and you want to make dua, what are the best times to make do is wake up at that time and make dua regarded. So no one now has to tell you when you know. Now you know now you can tell others been Allah azza wa jal, he says Intel at the annual banal zaniolo Karma when you

00:38:49--> 00:39:03

call the Advan mean right after and between Adana and eat karma, that's a time of an accepted supplication. So you take advantage of it after the Sadhas so when you read the Earth Guardian finished the earth card you can be involved in

00:39:04--> 00:39:05


00:39:06--> 00:39:37

and then he says in the soil, the Imam You're welcome it I don't remember when the Imam is making to the member. Right. And he's he's really referring to an opinion regarding the time have accepted to out on Friday, because there are two opinions in it. The one at first opinion it says it's when the Imam is on the member. Okay. But the strong and the other opinion is that it's the last hour after also on Friday, the one that we just had, so every Friday every single Friday from answer to mockery,

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

you have that hour, okay, which doesn't translate into 60 minutes, but a portion of time. It could be 30 minutes, it could be 40 minutes, Allah knows best, but it's between us and another closer to Muslim. So that's the time when you make a lot of dua, at home or in the masjid and you make that a pattern. Right make that a habit.

00:40:01--> 00:40:19

but you can do is like I said, you may say to yourself I'm going to forget what do I do? Is it come early to market? If you can come early to market if or if you're walking to my crib, or if you're driving to Maghreb you make it a habit so you don't forget and every time before Maghrib on Friday you making that dua always

00:40:20--> 00:40:56

and we can add to it of course in the Salah and Insitute because that's the closest that you are to Allah as origin. So that's the second thing okay, that you use an opportune time for dua well saw that the horseshoe and fill kalbi and also when you're making dua, so it coincides or there is a humility in the heart and you feel broken, broken before Allah azza wa jal, right, that is you're broken and no one can heal you except him. No one can fix you but him no one can make you complete but him Subhan Allah to Allah or ilunion Allahu wa Tada ro unwanted car.

00:40:57--> 00:41:41

You you humble yourself to Allah azza wa jal you feel that and you're very soft, very gentle, very fragile, you know, very fragile that I could rake I could die in this. This is how much I need Allah azza wa jal, right if he doesn't help me, I'm going to break right now. So fragility when it comes to human beings that's not praiseworthy. But when it comes to Allah azza wa jal, that's another story. Carla was talking about the dial Qibla and you face the Qibla and you have to Hara and you raise your hands to Allah azza wa jal and you begin by begin by praising Allah by thanking Allah and praising him. And then you second that by salah, and salam upon the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam,

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

and then add them a beignet they had at the hito but are listed for and then before he asks, he introduces is too far and Tober meaning Yeah, Allah forgive me for this and this and this year Allah I repent from this in this grant me repentance from this and from Allah, Allah Allahu Allahu Allah, if you miss Allah then when he started his dua, he insists in asking Allah as xojo and he praises Him with all words of honor and praise. What do I hold on to button WA and he asks him subhanho wa Taala with desire and fear I want this from you and I fear that from you your herbal Alameen where there was a lady here, he was referred to here whatever he did, and he besieges him Subhana wa Tada

00:42:26--> 00:42:46

and pleads using what His names and his attributes and he's still hate meaning I am worshipping you, you're Allah alone. You are Allah. I'm a follower of Muhammad Salatu was Salam meaning that you use your towhead you use their love you because you're able to use your Eman to ask Allah as for, for what you want,

00:42:47--> 00:43:25

will cut them obey they do it he sadaqa and he'll also give sadaqa to support his dua. He says in the how the DUA Allah care do you do a Buddha he says this type of dua seldom gets rejected. This type of dua when it has all of this in it, he says it seldom gets rejected, he says is specific especially and specifically, if he uses the eyes of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam that are likely to be accepted and answered, or that it has the greatest name of Allah as origin. So here he's also giving you another hint of how to make dua.

00:43:27--> 00:43:42

Because when you want to make dua, there are some ideas some prayers from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam that he had praised as being what an accepted dua or it has the greatest name of Allah as Odin which if you use Allah will accept your DUA and he gives us here

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

few examples. Okay. So we'll go through them briefly in sha Allah. So once the prophets a lot he was seldom heard somebody say Allah Khomeini. So Luca, be in Nisha do a Naka and Allahu La Ilaha illa Allah how to solid Allah de la mia dua mula duel them Jochen local foreigner had, he said to hurt somebody saying praying on his own. So your Allah, I'm asking you by the fact that I witness that until Allah you are Allah, there is no one worthy of worship except you have a summit. No one normally, or summit, the month that as we have in the Surah, the one that everyone's the complete the master whom everybody seeks, that's the money of a summit. The one who did not give birth or was

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

not given birth to and no one is equal to him. He used that in his dua. So the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He said, Indeed, he had asked Allah by His greatest or by the name that if he asked, Allah is asked with, he will give and if a do is received by that Allah will answer it.

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

So what a treasure you have that is if you memorize this, you put it in your DUA Allah money so Luca be in the ASHA to Allah ADA Illa until hello so medulla delimited vellum you will have given me a local phone that's fast

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

Right, that's quick. And then you say,

00:45:03--> 00:45:22

so memorize it, memorize it, by highlight it, and you memorize it so that you can put it in your DUA. So if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told you that this is a dua a name that Allah accepts to add that is included in it, then you should not let go of it. Right? In another Hadith the Prophet sallahu wa salam said,

00:45:23--> 00:46:05

another person said, Allah homogeneous Luca be in Narikala, BNL, Alhamdulillah, Illa Illa and Telma Nan, but you're a sama what you will or the other God will economia how you yaka Yom. So he said, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says he Allah I ask you by the fact that All praise belongs to you. No one is worthy of no wonders are worthy of worship except you. I'll manaan the giver. Okay without stop the admin none the giver, but do what you will or the creator of the heavens and the earth without any previous example meaning you created them out of nothing. Yeah, they'll generally will eat kromm Or the one with greatness. This is the money I will Gela extreme greatness. Well a kromm

00:46:05--> 00:46:16

Extreme generosity. Yeah, hey, the EverLiving the all living donor who has complete life, yaka, you're the one who is self sustained and sustained others

00:46:17--> 00:46:27

kind of roughly the explanation. So when he said this, the prophets Allah Allah wa salam said something similar to what he said to the other man, he prayed with Allah's Greatest Name.

00:46:28--> 00:46:37

If you use it, Allah will answer you to her. So that's another thing that you can use to enhance your DUA and make it more acceptable.

00:46:39--> 00:46:41

And there are a couple of other a hadith One is

00:46:42--> 00:47:27

there's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sydenham, when he said that the Greatest Name of Allah azza wa jal is an ayah isn't an area of Surah Al Baqarah. And an ayah in Surah earlier Imran and it revolves around the name of a high al KU. So using the name of a high al KU in your DUA, is highly recommended. And also in another Hadith, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said le Lu via the Jelani will eat Crom a to Allah azza wa jal we will hold on and repeat. Yeah, the agenda you will Iqra so you put that in your DUA as well, yeah, the Jalali will eat crumb this yellow allele or a Quran that because that is the recommendation and the advice of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.

00:47:28--> 00:47:31

The second hadith is weak, the one that

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

comes right after, so we're not going to focus on that, but part of the dua of the prophets of Allah Azza wa salam yah, yah, yah, yah iMobile hermetic esta leaf

00:47:43--> 00:48:13

Yah ha hey yo yo, yo mo Bureau Hermetica study that's part of the car morning and evening, your how you yaka you. And by the way your news even Tamia Rahim Allah He said, the higher volume has the day the combination of the two has an incredible effect on the acceptance of the DUA because they include all of the other names and qualities of Allah azza wa jal in him because he has the complete life and we don't and he is clay you meaning when you're saying clay Yomi says you don't need anyone and everyone needs you.

00:48:15--> 00:48:54

So if you think of that, while you're making dua, to Allah no one I mean, you don't need anyone but everybody needs you, including me and I cannot survive without you. When Allah azza wa jal hears that from you not just a word being repeated. So why you're asking Allah by these names? Because you emotionally stuck connect to Allah azza wa jal through these names mean Right? Not Yeah, hi yah, a human that said no yeah for you, meaning take care of me because you're the one who takes care of everything and I need your care and no one else can. So when Allah finds that in your heart, he brings you closer and part of that is acceptance of the DUA.

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


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

is Mala Hill are them The Greatest Name of Allah xojo is in three Surah of the Quran Al Baqarah and Al Imran and Taha so al Qasim he said he thinks it is a halal per human Allah knows best, but also for part of the the day of the noon. Send the following Hadith. He said sal Allahu Allahu wa salam Dawa to the noon. The supplication of Yunus Alayhis Salam, right, the companion of the whale.

00:49:28--> 00:49:40

If Tao Hua fables mill hood, when he said that ILA illa Anta Subhana Allah in the consuming of barley mean? He says, No one supplicates with this in any thing, except that ALLAH will answer his dua.

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


00:49:43--> 00:50:00

Because he accepted the dua of Yunus Alayhis Salam, so he says, if you take this and you put it in your DUA, Allah accepts your DUA. All these things enhance them. Now, but when you say this, when you say this, remember and understand what Yunus was saying, you

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

You know how you learn to Subhanak in your countrymen autonomy? Yeah Ania Allah, your it's glorified above any deficiency any bad font that I may have. Whatever is happening to me at this moment is not because of you, who because of who, in the consuming of Allah, I was one of the wrongdoers I brought this to myself, the problem is with me, the fault is with me, fix me, I rescue me. And then Allah sees that humility, Allah rescues the person, because he knows now you understand, okay, what do you need from me? And that you're my servant, and I'm your Lord. So thou now you could be rescued. But if you approach them with the opposite, that no I need, and I need it to be now that you don't have

00:50:48--> 00:51:02

as we said, the self or you don't have the attitude that enables you to receive that. For what? Okay, there's arrogance in it, right? There's entitlement. Like I've done what needs to be done No.

00:51:04--> 00:51:04


00:51:08--> 00:51:19

And we're gonna, let's say we'll just mention a couple of hours insha Allah. So another one in his when he said, sallallahu alayhi wa salam.

00:51:23--> 00:51:57

You're cooler in Del Kirby A times of hardship and stress. When you're feeling tight carp, so whatever whatever problem you're having, but also you're feeling down La ilaha illallah who will Aleem will Helene La ilaha illallah Hora Bhullar Sheila lien La ilaha illallah wa was similar to Sibbett you want to pull out the aura bullet shield Kareem so you see that either Illa Allah or a boo later Halal Allahu Allah, Allah will Helling there is no one worthy of worship except Allah Allah Allah him the great and Haleem the forbearing the one who is patient and kind,

00:51:58--> 00:52:21

or a Bhullar Sheila Aleem, you know, the Lord of the great Asha of Allah azza wa jal, the great throne, Ragusa to separate the Lord of the seven heavens and the earth, and the honorable Throne of Allah as origin. So again, you insert this in your DUA, feeling the Majesty of Allah azza wa jal, and then Allah as Odin will come to your aid.

00:52:22--> 00:53:06

The last thing we will mention in terms of the DUA that he had put in this particular sequence, he said, ma Saba had on Katan Herman WADA who's known for called he says, If anyone is touched by him or her isn't so sorrow, or stress, sorrow about something that is in the past or stress about something that is happening, or is about to happen. And we're between these two things, either sorrow, or stress. Then he says Allahumma in the Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah medic here Allah, I'm the son of Your servant, male servant, I'm the son of your female servant. Now see antibiotic, my head is under your control, right? Meaning you do whatever you want with the Maldon

00:53:06--> 00:53:51

fee, or hook McGartland fee, or called the Hulk, whatever you decide to happen to me happens. And whatever you decree is just right. I asked you by every name. So I'm just going to translate it shall I ask you by every name that you have, that you've called yourself, or you taught one of your creation, or revealed in a book or kept it with you in the world of the unseen, that you would make the Quran, the spring of my heart, and the light of my chest and the removal of my sadness. And the exit of my stress. He says Allah He salatu salam, if you do this, Allah azza wa jal will take away your stress and sadness, and replace them with Farah with happiness with contentment.

00:53:52--> 00:54:33

And that is another beautiful dua to keep in mind. And again, before you say, I'm too sad, I'm too depressed, I need to go see this and to go to see that or swallow this and that, why not take this medicine, write it down, write it down on write the translation right next to it and hang it somewhere and say it Okay, as often as you need, but especially right when you're going through some difficulties, say it, and share it, and remember it and memorize it and make it part of your medicinal cabinet, right, whenever you need something, you know how we have painkillers here, and you make sure that you have them or this oil to rub on the body or you always have something extra,

00:54:34--> 00:54:43

right? Just in case of emergencies, that we need something that will help us spiritually, in case of emergency. So where is your book?

00:54:44--> 00:54:59

Where is that app that has older as in its way did you write them down? are they hanging your head on the wall somewhere so that you'll always remember? So you need that to help you as you need physical help as well. So that is a beautiful

00:55:00--> 00:55:05

Do an dhikr from the Prophets Allah, Allah, Allah you were Sydenham, and maybe perhaps

00:55:07--> 00:55:09

to a couple of things here in this

00:55:11--> 00:55:12

let's call it sequence

00:55:15--> 00:55:42

one is Hollub, numerous oedema coolibah. Nabil Mina and MBA list of artha bit disappear. He says, If any prophet of the prophets of Allah azza wa jal is tested, or is under hardship, he resorts to test to be Subhan Allah subhana, Allah Subhana Allah will be handy. Or you could say Allah, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah iniquity immunoblotting. So this is authentic rudeness, oh Allahu Alem. So understand also the power of the speaker, and then he brings a story.

00:55:43--> 00:55:57

And I'll just translate the story very quickly and tell you in sha Allah, how we could approach such stories when you encounter them in the books. It says it is said, and it's reported, but you've not been dunya SS raise a

00:55:58--> 00:56:10

man from the companions of the Prophet sal Allahu Allahu wa salam that was called so and so. And he was a merchant, and he had money and he used to travel. And he was a pious man. So in one of those travels, a,

00:56:12--> 00:56:51

a thief appeared to him. And he said, Give me what you have, and I'm going to kill you. Like, give me what I have, and I'm going to kill you. He said, Take whatever I have. Why do you have to kill me? It says, I'm going to get what you have anyway. But I also need to kill you. He says, Well, if that's the case, let me pray for rock as and then do whatever you want. So he said he may do a little bit Smead let him he made will do and they prayed for Torah cause and then he says at the end of it, he said in the last search that he says a particular dua, he says, yeah, we'll do dia de la silla Machida for Allah limitary, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. And he saved me from this thief.

00:56:53--> 00:57:06

So he said this three times. It says, As for me, as soon as he finished that, or as soon as he finished his salah, he saw, he saw a knight or a rider on a horse coming and he had a spear in his hand.

00:57:09--> 00:57:12

When he saw the thief, the robber, right.

00:57:13--> 00:57:23

He killed him with that. So that night, the writer came with a spear running at that thief, and he killed him with it.

00:57:24--> 00:58:04

Out of nowhere, that he asked him, you know, you know, Allah azza wa jal had saved me today because of you. Who are you? So he answered, He says, I'm an angel from the angels of that seven sky. So when you made the DUA, the first time There was noise at the doors of the heavens, then the second time there was another noise. And then the third time it was said, Who is this and they say someone who's afflicted somebody who's in hardship. So he says, I asked Allah azza wa jal to enable me to help you. So I helped you. So it says here Hassan says, so if you make wudu and you pray to rock as and you make that dua, Allah as the dude will answer your DUA. Right? Now, I have no claim here is

00:58:04--> 00:58:49

not bringing this type of story to tell you that it necessarily happened. Right? But he's telling you that story to enhance your belief that the help of Allah azza wa jal is near, because the chain of that story is weak. The chain of that story is weak, because somebody could ask if I make this dua, well, I see an angel coming down exactly like this and that what is going to take place is is not doing that for this is telling you that this story or similar stories, right tell you that when you make dua, it is hurt, and that Allah azza wa jal will come to your aid, in what way it would not be reasonable for you to think that a knight coming down with a spear is going to come and save you

00:58:49--> 00:59:30

like this. It would not be reasonable. But it would be reasonable for you to believe that Allah azza wa jal is hearing your supplication and there's something is happening in the sky, because of your DUA, there is movement, there is noise, there is something that is being getting ready for you, that you are moving things, follow what I'm saying, you are moving things things are happening because of your da. We don't know how long it's going to take. Right? But it doesn't mean also when you hear this and we're going to emphasize this insha Allah next week, because next week, there's that next piece for him that in my mind, if you understand it, you'll understand something that 50% of Muslims

00:59:30--> 00:59:48

at least don't understand about dua but that we have to leave inshallah for next week. But it doesn't mean that repeat exactly what was said here in that story, because what is best what was said in that story, or where the prophet recommended.

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

Now, were the prophets all they said and recommended. So somebody's own experience with a particular dua does not Eclipse or supersede any

01:00:00--> 01:00:17

Edo from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So always keep that in mind where the Prophet has said is divine inspiration. And no one can bring this thing better than a divine inspiration from Allah has. Right? So we'll stop here in sha Allah will Allah mean and we'll continue next week with us

01:00:19--> 01:00:21

Let me know in sha Allah if you have questions yeah

01:00:27--> 01:00:37

so in the Salah NFL or I'm going to add even the obligation Can you supplicate in your own language in the sujood The short answer is yes inshallah. Yes, you can

01:00:39--> 01:00:55

have the header even the mandatory even the mandatory if you don't feel comfortable that is up to you it's a personal choice that I'm telling you you want to in the mandatory or the voluntary Salah you could supplicate in the sujood in your own language if you wish insha Allah that's fine

01:01:21--> 01:01:22

so you're not traveling right?

01:01:25--> 01:01:26

01:01:38--> 01:01:46
