Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He or cyber he was Salam o

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

Allah Marlena million pharaoh now and finally my LinkedIn was in Elma Nora Bella Alameen

00:00:13 --> 00:00:17

llama in Allah rica or shook Rica was Neva retic.

00:00:20 --> 00:00:25

To ask him, Allah subhanho wa taala, the Most Merciful, the Most High

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

that he would strengthen and support

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

and guide us subhanaw taala on the journey

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

of learning, our deen Islam,

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

understanding his book understanding the Sunnah of His messenger, Allah Salatu was Salam and trying to understand the best way to relate to him and to worship him. Subhanahu wa Taala

00:00:54 --> 00:01:04

so in this particular Hadith and I want to give them enough time in sha Allah just to adjust what they adjust, so we're good. We're good hamdulillah hamdulillah so

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

we've reached Hadith number four.

00:01:09 --> 00:01:19

And in this particular Hadith, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said in Allah your hippo either I mean I had to come and Milan a youth cleaner.

00:01:22 --> 00:01:41

In Allah your hippo either amela had to come Amelie and youth cleaner, because a very short Hadith. But you will see insha Allah and you realize the impact of that hadith once it's absorbed and once it's applied. So here the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Allah loves that when one of you does something that they perfected,

00:01:43 --> 00:01:55

that Allah loves that when one of you does something, meaning anything that would be pleasing to Allah azza wa jal or anything that would be permissible, right? That they would perfect it.

00:01:57 --> 00:02:03

So, when Allah azza wa jal or when the Prophet sallahu wa salam said, in law, you Hibou

00:02:04 --> 00:02:07

one thing before we go into the details of that hadith

00:02:08 --> 00:02:10

is for us to underscore

00:02:12 --> 00:02:18

the fact that Allah azza wa jal loves and he loves in ways that are beyond our comprehension,

00:02:19 --> 00:02:35

meaning kind of the limit of Allah's love are beyond our comprehension. So think of with me, when you think of any attribute of the attributes of Allah subhanho wa taala. Do we imagine that it has a limit?

00:02:36 --> 00:02:40

No, right? So we say that Allah forgives.

00:02:41 --> 00:03:13

So you can say Allah could forgive all sins. Right? Right. All sins, right? And as long as that person is alive, all sins absolutely can be forgiven. So there is no iman so in the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that Allah azza wa jal says, he says, If you were to bring this roofs filled with sins, and you come to me associating none with me, I will forgive all of them. Okay, Macaulay salatu salam, so there is no limit to Allah's forgiveness. There is the limit to Allah's power.

00:03:14 --> 00:03:18

We can so Allah can do everything right. Nothing can stand in his way.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:27

Then the same way, is there a limit to Allah's love, because it's also a divine attribute, suffer and severity lies.

00:03:28 --> 00:03:37

So Allah's love is far beyond your and my ability to love this if Allah Zota loves you, He loves you more than you love him.

00:03:39 --> 00:03:51

Even if you say I love Allah azza wa jal with every cell in my body, even if that is possible, right? I love Allah azza wa jal and every waking minute

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

and even when I'm asleep,

00:03:55 --> 00:04:08

he said, we still say that Allah azza wa jal loves you more than you love him. Because Allah's capacity for love is far greater than any human being because that is a creative capacity and that is a divine capacity.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:19

So when we understand that there is no limit to Allah's love, we must feel how immense and intense it is.

00:04:20 --> 00:04:31

Not only Allah's power, and also the way that we treat Allah's power it should be also the way that we treat Allah's love in what way? That is, you see things on this earth

00:04:32 --> 00:04:39

and you know that they are displeasing to Allah azza wa jal does that indicate Allah's weakness?

00:04:40 --> 00:05:00

No, but what do we say? That they are there for a reason but Allah azza wa jal if he wanted, he could change all that in a blink of an eye. You're with me in a blink of an eye. So the fact that there are things on this earth that run contrary to what Allah wants, does not indicate weakness, but right

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

Other wisdom that he allows them for a reason? So if there are things on this earth that may run contrary in your and my head to the fact that Allah azza wa jal loves

00:05:14 --> 00:05:35

do we interpret that as Allah being unloving? Or do we interpret that as being what that Allah allows it for a reason. So if there is corruption and theft and murder and killing, and and and and all of these things, and somebody looks at them and you say see this is all evidence that Allah azza wa jal is uncaring and unloving.

00:05:36 --> 00:06:25

Do we say that that's true? You say No, Allah azza wa jal on this earth and in your life, you will be a witness to that the fact that there is greater love and greater correct care and greater mercy than the opposite in your life, in humanity's history, and its present condition, you will be a witness that there is greater love than otherwise. But the fact is that there are some of humanity and some of us when we accept the whispers of the shaytaan, what do we do is that we just harp on and focus on the negative. And we already said what that negative is, the negative is there to serve a purpose and Allah's plan, and the Allah's master plan, but the fact is, when Allah has Zota loves,

00:06:26 --> 00:06:41

He loves immensely, he loves completely subhanho wa Taala and you see evidence of that and everything that is around you. Not the least of it is that Allah zodion had facilitated this earth and this universe for your sake

00:06:43 --> 00:06:58

was a Corolla commotion so welcome Radha eBay nirsa Hora hola como la isla Wanda? He had gave you already facilitate for you, the sun and the moon constantly running and he facilitated for you day and night. I mean, who is this greater for?

00:06:59 --> 00:07:11

For you, you understand? Okay. Sometimes you might complain about things being too hot and too cold. They don't go according to your plan. But Allah is telling you that the sun is running for you.

00:07:12 --> 00:07:35

To see how big it is, the moon is running for you. The seasons are for you day and night are for you. All these grand things are happening for you. And then you still claim that Allah does not love and Allah does not care. Now Allah says love is far beyond comprehension. And no one can understand the extent of Allah's love, except Allah.

00:07:36 --> 00:07:59

As no one can understand the extent of Allah's power except him subhanho wa Taala so don't let what you see or some of what you see on this earth. Reflect on and ludie lead you to conclude that Allah as though did doesn't care Allah does not love no we have stronger evidence that he's a pan over to Allah is the most loving and the or loving as He is the Most Merciful.

00:08:00 --> 00:08:22

So, sometimes as we said, sometimes if a person is going through difficult times, he is suffering she is suffering. And the only thing that you could see is what the pain of your own suffering and the fact that there is perceivably no exit and there is no relief and you feel victimized because of it, you feel undeserving ly

00:08:23 --> 00:08:33

subjected to that pain, then you may conclude that the Creator especially if you hear people say I prayed and pray and there is no answer.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:41

And I feel that Allah azza wa jal is not listening to me. And because of that, I'm beginning to lose faith.

00:08:42 --> 00:09:24

Because if he's there, he would listen. So suffering indicates lack of care, lack of love. Some people may start thinking that Why are bad things happening to me one after the other? I didn't get married or I get married and I lost my child, one and a second and a third. One trouble after the other I got sick, my children got sick. Is it mean that Allah azza wa jal is after me he wants to destroy me. Allah wants to punish me. So you start developing an image of Allah azza wa jal of being the Punisher, the vengeful, the one who's angry all the time. And when you start reading that in the Quran you go to is about hellfire, and these are valid and important ideas. But when you're wrapped

00:09:24 --> 00:09:46

ready, or well enough to receive them and interpret them, you start seeing this is a sea this is all evidence that Allah azza wa jal destroys and he hates and he just wants to smite that's what it is level the earth to the ground. And you feel that, okay, you have to you want to run away, right? So Allah azza wa jal

00:09:48 --> 00:09:59

doesn't really want to destroy you and he did He create you think about it rationally. And then based on the Quran, did He create you in this form simply because he wants to punish you

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

On destroy you, because that will go against wisdom. Think of any artist or a creator or a human creator you you create something very beautiful very intricate

00:10:12 --> 00:10:32

very beneficial and you create it simply to destroy it or do you want it to serve a function? You want it to continue to live if a person right what are the cool you can Latina oh that was magical words in and Katha or Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran do not be like she who, after she had with some things started to take it apart.

00:10:33 --> 00:11:11

If there was something they said that there was this woman in Makkah, there was something you know, wrong with her. So she would weave something once she's done, it's complete what she does, we'll take it apart. So I'll throw it over Allah is really saying that when you make an oath, honor it rather than you make an oath and you break it. But you understand that image where Allah brings in the Quran, when you create you create for a reason. So Allah has created you to punish and destroy. Allah says in the Quran, if Allah Allah will be either become in Ceccato momentum, what would Allah do? Why would Allah punish you? If you obey and you're thankful? For what like, what does he get

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

from it?

00:11:13 --> 00:11:21

Right? So if we obey, we don't give Allah azza wa jal anything now if we disobey. And Allah does and punishes us, what does he get back from it?

00:11:23 --> 00:12:09

joy happiness, Allah Azza does not that so if you think about it, Allah has is after me he wants to destroy me he wants to punish me sake, remove these things away from your head Allah as though deal is not that is that you're looking at what is happening to you through this particular lens blinds but that lens is inaccurate. Alright, so you need to change it so that you would see that there is wisdom behind suffering behind the affliction, and that Allah azza wa jal does not get anything from punishing or from affliction. And here, Allah azza wa jal let me see here there's a quote on page 44 And I refer to these quotes simply because in case you read them or you're gonna read them, you'll

00:12:09 --> 00:12:11

be able to choose not to go back to them.

00:12:12 --> 00:12:35

So he said, Hey, this is from you know, Tamia, Rahim Allah, He says Lisa V Esma, Illa. Hill. husana is Manya todo mundo Seyfarth. A lot of you will either be? Well if you suffer, it is difficult to untangle the valley. He says among Allah's most excellent name, there is no name of his that has the quality of anger and punishment, and there is no attribute among his attributes that entails that right.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:59

So what he's saying here, Rahim Allah is that Allah azza wa jal gets angry, right. So among his attributes, is the attribute of anger. And Allah azza wa jal punishes, and among his attributes are is the one who punishes. Now do you find among the attributes of Allah as among the names of Allah, the angry

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

alcohol, the oral hotbar in the Quran? Now,

00:13:05 --> 00:13:07

do you find among them The Punisher?

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

No, the Avenger element of them.

00:13:14 --> 00:14:01

You say no. And in fact, we say make a note that in the Quran in the book here, that the common wall hangings that they see the names of Allah azza wa jal enumerated on them that list as one of those names and moonda theme. We say that this is not a Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam that is authentic to him. But what this is what they call it, a muda Raj, meaning one of the narrators when he is narrated the Hadith of the names of Allah azza wa jal that he has 90 names. He enumerated them, not the sahabi not the prophet but one of the narrator's he said Allah azza wa jal has 999 names and he listed based on his own deduction from the Quran and Sunnah. So it's not a hadith

00:14:01 --> 00:14:33

because that those enumerations have in them al moonta claim the Avenger but we say the avenger is not one of the names of Allah azza wa jal because not there the Quran and it's not there in the Sunnah. So make a note of this right? Whenever you see that, go back to the point that we're trying to make. What does it mean that Allah has a name that is a Rahman Rahim, but not the angry and not the Punisher. So the attribute of Rama with Allah azza wa jal is so constant that is elevated to the level of a name.

00:14:35 --> 00:14:43

So Allah azza wa jal is always a Rahman, right. Right. As an exception, he gets angry.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:59

As an exception, so Allah is not angry all the time. Right? Allah is not angry all the time. But he is he always merciful without interruption always merciful. Ramen ramen is filled with mercy

00:15:00 --> 00:15:24

Same thing that we will be talking about the name of a dude. The one who loves and is loved, that's to Allah will have a name of Allah azza wa jal think about it in human terms so that you can relate. So if you're a person who gives money, right, right, sometimes you donate here and there but that's not a constant feature of yours. We will not call you the generous Right?

00:15:26 --> 00:15:32

Or if you sometimes are funny, but in our funny all the times we will call you the funny guy.

00:15:33 --> 00:15:44

Why? Because another common feature but if you're constantly funny, and you pass by your Seuss companies that that funny guy because everybody will know why. Because every time we see him He makes us funny laugh

00:15:45 --> 00:16:13

or every time we ask him for money he gives money so he's the generous constantly that becomes a name and or a nickname. This elevated from a suffer from my quality into a name. So Allah azza wa jal is Rama is constant, his creation, his forgiveness, these are the levels of name but these other things which is to punish, to avenge and to the angry these are exceptions. Now what makes Allah angry?

00:16:15 --> 00:16:23

The sins, sins of humanity make Allah azza wa jal angry. Now, if we were to imagine that there is no sin,

00:16:24 --> 00:16:26

would there would Allah be angry?

00:16:27 --> 00:16:28


00:16:30 --> 00:17:10

No, right? If you imagine that humanity could you know, manage for the next year or five years or whatever, not sin at all, which is impossible to not sin at all. Allah will not be angry. So I'll only becomes angry when something wrong happens Otherwise Allah is not. So this tells you that when Allah Allah azza wa jal says, according to the prophets of Allah, Allah wa salam, he says in the rahmati, saba katabi My Mercy supersedes my anger you understand why because mercy is that common feature and name of Allah azza wa jal and GRE once the people of heaven, enter Jannah they're not going to be afraid of being punished. Allah is never going to be angry with them is always going to

00:17:10 --> 00:17:26

be merciful. And Allah Allah azza wa jal always will be blessing them. So, if we understand that Allah azza wa jal loves on an abstract level, and then in the Quran and the Sunnah Allah azza wa jal loves,

00:17:27 --> 00:17:28

then Allah azza wa jal cares,

00:17:29 --> 00:17:54

right? And if Allah azza wa jal cares, then Allah wants the best for you. So it's inconceivable no matter what is happening to you or will happen to you. So I hope that if you're Hamdulillah, you will find now at least remember this for later because of all of us have to be tested. That if Allah azza wa jal puts you through some difficult times, Allah is not doing this because he wants to simply quash you.

00:17:55 --> 00:18:35

He did not create you for this, but rather he wants to change, you elevate you, bring you closer to him. subhanho wa Taala there is a plan for you. You just need to embrace it and ask Allah for guidance. You don't need to fight it. Always do what Allah loves, but don't complain about him. He's guiding you somewhere. So you believe in that from Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's why he sent Muhammad Ali his Salatu was Salam and that's why he sent the Quran and that's why there are obligations and prohibitions and halal and haram and that's why everything that is around you is simply because he cares about you. So no matter what happens, never assume that Allah azza wa jal is

00:18:35 --> 00:18:44

uncaring, or unloving, he's just waiting for you to come back to him. subhanho wa taala. And think about it, Allah azza wa jal does not need us

00:18:45 --> 00:19:29

in any way. Think about the greatest and the strongest on this on Earth today. Do they know about you? And if they know about you do they care about you know, write to them, you're almost nothing a consumer maybe. But a very small insignificant thing you live you die, it doesn't really matter to them. Allah, the Creator of All right? The creator of all cares about you, specifically, personally. Right? So when you know, so I don't know what are the Allahu Anhu I passed away? He died. What did he say? Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He said that the Throne of Allah azza wa jal shook for the death of Saddam.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:38

He's just one person. And you know, imagining the magnitude of Allah's throne is beyond us.

00:19:39 --> 00:19:43

Why would that shake for the death of simple human being?

00:19:44 --> 00:19:59

That only tells you that side mattered to Allah azza wa jal right and matter to the angels and not even to the throne to the ash of Allah as a soldier. So you could be here, someone very small, invisible, no one knows about you, but you could matter signif

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

can lead to Allah azza wa jal and to the angels of Allah azza wa jal. So when we say one of the names of Allah azza wa jal is Allah dude

00:20:09 --> 00:20:18

a name right? It means that what Allah The one who loves immensely because this is a an emphatic

00:20:20 --> 00:20:46

form alpha dude like alpha four okay Alpha dude means lone one who loves immensely and is loved immensely, loves and is loved that's the name of attitude and if you love Allah azza wa jal or rather if Allah zodion Loves You, Allah azza wa jal will put His love around you. So there is this

00:20:48 --> 00:20:50

Aya actually don't need it here,

00:20:51 --> 00:21:34

where Allah azza wa jal says about Musa alayhis salam, welcome to alayka Mahabharata mini what is to SNA Allah, He is talking about Musa alayhis salam, but at that moment when he was still an infant, while play to alayka I surrounded you, for with a love from Me, so that you will grow under my watchful eye. So what did that mean? Was that Musa alayhis salam, if you remember, right, so his mother, put him deposited him under Allah's care right in the river in the Nile, and that carries him all the way to the court, to the palace of the very person who is looking to kill him.

00:21:35 --> 00:21:38

So what is the thing that saves Musa alayhis salam

00:21:39 --> 00:21:41

is that everybody who saw Musa loved him,

00:21:42 --> 00:21:44

he can cannot resist it.

00:21:45 --> 00:22:20

He cannot resist Musa Elisa, if you see him, you would immediately fall in love with that boy. So Allah azza wa jal, he says, I put love on you. And that love became what would save them. So if Allah has Zoda loves you, He will put love around you and for you. And that love will be surrounding you facilitating easing your way to Allah azza wa jal. The important thing here is that you will love Allah enough for you to get this and we will encounter a hadith that is more explicit later on about that, that part. So

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

we already said the part that Allah azza wa jal.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:35

Allah is Love is unlike any other love that you will encounter in your life. And that is because Allah dude when he loves,

00:22:36 --> 00:22:49

he does one not does not want anything back from you. Right? In the sense of what? Yes, he wants you to obey Him. Do the good, avoid the bad, but again, what does he get from that?

00:22:51 --> 00:23:02

Like physically? Or any other sense? What does he get from this? This can nothing at all. So it goes back to you. And he do it? Because you need it, do it because you need it.

00:23:04 --> 00:23:11

Any other human loves you? They will love you. But they always want something from you. They have to

00:23:12 --> 00:23:24

why? Because we are incomplete and we are deficient. So I'm always needing somebody around. So if I love my wife, I'll give her love. But is it that I'm expecting nothing back from her?

00:23:25 --> 00:23:42

The same thing with a wife with her husband, or I'm giving my children love? Is it that I'm expecting absolutely nothing back from them. I do want something back. We say but that's selfish, he says but this is human because every human being needs something back who is the human who says I need nothing absolutely at all.

00:23:43 --> 00:23:44

That's why it's interesting that

00:23:45 --> 00:23:57

Amador himolla one was making dua and he is saying that he Allah make me not need anyone from your creation. Say Muhammad Rahim. Allah is as this person has just asked Allah for death.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:38

You follow? The Allah make me independent, not need anyone from your creation. So he said that person is wishing for death. Because that's the only time when you will not need anyone. Otherwise they have to read somebody. So you're dependent on and they depend on you. So Allah's love is so complete, and so unique, that's very different, so he doesn't get anything from you. And that's why you can give all of you to Allah azza wa jal because he does not expect anything back except what just do the halal and haram do the obligations, avoid the Haram so that you could save yourself and you'd be better but I don't want anything from you. I'm the one who is going to give you everything.

00:24:38 --> 00:24:43

Just give that to me. And I'll be the one who's giving you anything without any expectations.

00:24:44 --> 00:24:45


00:24:46 --> 00:24:59

of course also just to emphasize another point, and we'll keep insha Allah emphasizing that it is which is that it's not enough just to love him. subhanaw taala so I don't want anyone to misunderstand

00:25:00 --> 00:25:41

What we're seeing along this path you must love but you also have to have respect and honor and fear of him. subhanho wa taala. Because if you don't, you would love him subhanaw taala just you like love a friend or a spouse or an equal, and then when you hear, don't be sad, that's okay. He'll forgive me. Just like your parents will tell you don't do this and you know that there are no repercussions if you disobey. Why because they love you. Okay? But for Allah azza wa jal, that's not the right type of love to have because if you just have love, it's a distorted relationship. If you have fear, like we explained before, you've just have fear. That's a distorted relationship, until

00:25:41 --> 00:26:07

you have all of them together. So when you love Allah azza wa jal, but also you love him as your Rob not as your equal, not as a parent, not as a son. But you love him as someone who has power over you, then you understand who Allah azza wa jal is, then you will rush to do what he wants. Because of all these motivations, you will you're afraid at times and you love at times, and you're hopeful at times, but you need to have all of these things together.

00:26:09 --> 00:26:14

Now, let's talk about the Hadith in particular, but before we say,

00:26:15 --> 00:26:45

why Allah azza wa jal loves that when we do something we perfect it. Let's also consider that Allah azza wa jal when He created everything, he perfected it. Allah in His creation, He created it with SN, Allah, the SN Akula. Che in halacha. The One who created everything with a certain meaning perfection, it is well created, it is beautiful, because when something is Huson, in the in the Arabic language, right, what is Hassan, beautiful

00:26:46 --> 00:27:30

and what is Hasson well made, and they're connected with something is well made. It's beautiful, and it's beautiful. It's well made, right? So we want to emphasize both of these things. So when you look at Allah's creation, to understand why is it that Allah azza wa jal loves his son in our deeds, because Allah azza wa jal had a son and everything that he created, so look how breathtaking it is, and we need to take time to have this to occur in the creation of Allah zodion Lavina Corona if you help us somehow it will or or Bernama halacha Battilana Subhana, if they want to contemplate the creation of the heavens and the earth, you see, indeed Allah you did not create this for nothing for

00:27:30 --> 00:28:17

play. So they see evidence of Allah's wisdom and evidence of Allah's goal and purpose in the exact creation of Allah subhanho wa taala. From looking at the galaxies in the universe, and the planets and how they run all the way to the smallest things that we see and the things that we assume they exist, but we do not see like subatomic particles, electrons running all the time, we assume that we've never seen them. But there is this constants, movement, precise movement, and everything is in its place, and everything completes every other thing. And you see beauty in color, beauty and relationships, beauty and punctuality and you see SN and all of it, and you realize who is this

00:28:17 --> 00:28:40

Merson Allah as urgent, and you feel like eating food, and you eat one type, and you feel like eating another and you eat another and you feel like drinking something and you drink that and then you drink another and you feel like entertainment and the new entertains yourself. And there is beauty after beauty. And there's a sin after sin. And you never stop and wonder who is the one who had given all of that to you.

00:28:41 --> 00:28:56

And you see something and it makes you feel full on the inside. Sunset sunrise, beautiful animals beautiful relationship, something that just nourishes your soul, that sentiment that emotion, that feeling who gave you the ability to experience

00:28:57 --> 00:29:24

the comfort, right? The happiness when you have a child, when you see them succeed when you do something nice, who gave you that ability? That experience? That is the Hilson that comes from the person who's Allah azza wa jal. So when you see these things, stop, and thank him Subhana who were to Allah just be grateful that you could feel this, that you could have that, that you could experience this because you were nothing

00:29:25 --> 00:29:47

like a black dot, a black dot, that was nothing and you became something that could feel all of these things. So perfection. SN, again, indicates love and care. Right? So if you see somebody really working on restoring a vehicle, a car

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

or somebody really, you know, putting an effort in cooking a meal. What do you immediately assume about that effort? That person was restoring that vehicle, you'd say

00:30:00 --> 00:30:12

That's his hobby. He likes to do this. He loves this, right? Or this person who's cooking, and they spent hours. He or she, they must love what?

00:30:13 --> 00:30:56

Cooking. That's why they want to create something special. Otherwise they wouldn't spend time on it. So if Allah azza wa jal cares, and he creates something so beautiful, that indicates that he cares about it. Otherwise, why created like that? And if he cares about it, that mean he loves it. That's why it is there for because it also one of the things that it does is that it reminds you of him, and it leads you to him. So in every thing that is created, there is a sign that leads you to Allah azza wa jal and to who the designer is and who the creator is, right? You could trace it back to him. subhanho wa Taala or he cares he loves He knows.

00:30:57 --> 00:31:00

Okay, he's wise, you could see it.

00:31:01 --> 00:31:09

So a cent from Allah subhanho wa Taala is imperfection. Meaning it's so well made, and it's also beautiful.

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


00:31:12 --> 00:31:20

let's, again, refer here to the text. You know, tell you me, Rahim, Allah, He says, Fear Allah He Kulu has an on Jimmy.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:26

That's really beautiful. He said, the actions of Allah are all good and beautiful.

00:31:28 --> 00:31:52

The actions of Allah azza wa jal are all good and beautiful. Even the things that don't look like that there is beauty in them. But it is to be uncovered later. Or if you expand your view and you're able to see fully the present and the past and if you may be able to see it, but fit Allahu Allahu Kulu has an Jamil

00:31:53 --> 00:32:02

and that's why one of the when the DA was at the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. When he's praising Allah azza wa jal, he says we're sure Rollei say a lake and evil is not from you.

00:32:04 --> 00:32:11

Evil is not from you say well where is a Trump they say evil is the product of humanity. Allah creates it.

00:32:12 --> 00:32:20

Allah creates it. We can't we don't have the ability to create. Allah creates it, Allah allows it, but who decided that they wanted

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

us? So Allah says okay, it's gonna be going to be but fit Allah He the actions of Allah zodion itself is all beautiful, evil exist in creation, but not in the actions of Allah azza wa jal, right?

00:32:41 --> 00:32:42


00:32:45 --> 00:32:57

And there's also as we kind of to support that when we said there is beauty in all of Allah's creation. So there is Hadith, this Hadith from Raha Hamad

00:32:58 --> 00:33:20

he the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He said, once he followed the man, this is on page 48. He followed a man until he prophets a lot, he was salam. He just ran after him, and he grabbed him by the clothes. And he said, If is our truck, lift up your lower garment. So this is a male, and the Prophet sallallaahu Selim saw him.

00:33:21 --> 00:33:41

So he walked after him, and then he ran after him. And then when he got him, he said, What, lift up your lower argument Mara garment because it's below the ankles. So lift them up. So the man uncovered his knees and he said, O Messenger of Allah, my legs, my legs are crooked, and my knees collide.

00:33:43 --> 00:34:25

Meaning he's at he's saying, what? Why am I covering them? Why is it this long? Because there is what I consider to be a deformity there. It doesn't look nice. So I'm hiding it. I'm hiding it. So the prophets of Allah, Allah, he was telling me he said, Could you help the law here as Allah Hassan. He says, All the creation of Allah hazarded is beautiful. So the man continued to lift up his lower garment to the middle of his leg until he died. And he heeded the advice of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And he did not extend his garment beyond his ankles. But I want you to understand what the men felt. And when the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said and what we can take

00:34:25 --> 00:34:40

from it. He said, Okay, Mike legs, legs are crooked, my knees collide, it's just it's not a beautiful sight. I'm covering that because it's not beautiful. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said, couldn't help Allah He has an all the creation of Allah is beautiful.

00:34:41 --> 00:35:00

Now, of course, there are things that are more beautiful than things right. They're not they're not all at the same level of beauty. But what does he mean that all the creation of Allah is beautiful here? Who made this? His legs? Allah azza wa jal? Do they serve a function? Yes. Do they carry you? Yes. I

00:35:00 --> 00:35:17

All right. Can anyone do something like that? No. So so when you look at it from that angle, isn't it beautiful? Especially when you see who's behind it. So when you look at it like that, indeed Kulu alquila Hassan, he may say, oh my god, I mean, okay, I don't like snakes.

00:35:18 --> 00:35:23

I consider them to be ugly. In one sense, yeah, they are scary.

00:35:24 --> 00:36:02

I don't like you know, the faces of the devils Allah. Allah says in the Quran, Salah haka, and the horror also Shayateen describing the tree in hellfire. It says its fruits are like the faces or the heads of the devils indicating that the heads of the devils are ugly. So in one sense, yeah, there is things that are less beautiful or ugly. But if you look at them in terms of serving a function of perfection of creation, that Allah azza wa jal had deposited in them, so many things that work and that in, you know, totality, they are needed, you will look back and you say, they are beautiful.

00:36:03 --> 00:36:45

You understand what I'm saying? They are beautiful, even if they squirt poison, but see how it's there and see what it does and see the beauty in it. There's beauty in it, you could be scared, you're right, you have a right to but there's also beauty in it. So when you look at it in terms of all the creation of Allah azza wa jal is beautiful, it changes your perspective about what is on this earth and your relationship to it. And how you should suppose to maintain that beauty and maintain that sin right. And so, this man wrote who was worried about his body and how it looked decided the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was right. So this is the creation of Allah there is no need

00:36:45 --> 00:37:02

to hide it, unless Allah tells you to hide it, right? Right. So Allah tells you this is the limit of your our cover it loose clothing, etcetera, etcetera, you will do it but you will not say, hey, my body is beautiful. I need to share it with everybody. Your body belongs to you or to Allah.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:05

Is by is your body yours?

00:37:07 --> 00:37:45

No, your body belongs to Allah as you're supposed to do with it. Whatever Allah azza wa jal once, you know, just evidence of that, can you just go and donate whatever part of your body you want? No. Can't you have to ask Allah so can you end your life? Is my life? How come? My body? How come? As you know, Allah azza wa jal is the governor of of it all. He tells you what you can do with it or not. So, when we see the creation of Allah azza wa jal that it's all beautiful. And it's created with SN, we receive that with being content

00:37:46 --> 00:38:28

and grateful content with whatever Allah has given you. Because Allah had given you beautiful things. You don't not gonna come back and say I'm not as beautiful as so and so. Or as not, I'm not as thin as thin as thorns or so and so, not as tall not as this not as that. Look at whatever Allah had given you, whoever it took, take it and be thankful for it because there is beauty in it. So see the beauty of Allah azza wa jal in how he created you don't now start comparing color to a color size to a size and say, they are more beautiful. Why are you denying the beauty of Allah azza wa jal in how and what he had created and had given to you. So take it, be content with it, and thank Allah

00:38:28 --> 00:38:44

xojo for it and when you do this, you will be rich, and you'll be satisfied. If you don't, you will always be chasing an ideal that is an illusion. Because you will always think that somebody is more beautiful somebody has what you don't have.

00:38:45 --> 00:39:11

And as I said also that if we see that Allah associate has created everything with beauty, you want to preserve it everything with a sun you want to preserve it and that is the second part that we will focus on. When he said Alia salatu salam, Allah loves that if you do anything that you do it with perfection you do it right you do it well. So it will claim Rahim Allah He see he said here

00:39:12 --> 00:39:39

he said we'll have the show as Matt Hill hosts now this is the case with his most excellent names are Hubble healthy Haley him and ethos of Abu Dhabi her well behaved home Ella human Atlas of hubby Abadi her, the most beloved of his creation to him are the ones who adopt their consequent qualities and the one whom he hates or the most who adopt its opposite qualities. So if you don't get this, think about it. If Allah is merciful, He loves what?

00:39:40 --> 00:39:48

Mercy so the more merciful you are, the more Allah loves you. There's a hadith exactly about that. We'll come to it.

00:39:49 --> 00:39:59

If Allah is Forgiving, he loves forgiveness. So you have to forgive, for Allah to love you and the more that you forgive the more Allah loves you

00:40:00 --> 00:40:06

Now that that does not apply to all of the nine Names of Allah Zodac some of the names of Allah are only his

00:40:07 --> 00:40:15

alma mater can't bear the one who is greater than add anybody else. Should we assume Kip? No, we need humility.

00:40:17 --> 00:40:33

So that does not work for us. But some of the names of Allah azza wa jal, their consequent qualities, as I said, mood Shabbiha you should adore adopt and if you adopt Allah loves you. So as we said, the Rama and forgiveness and generosity and Kareem

00:40:34 --> 00:40:59

is more generous you are the more that Allah azza wa jal loves you. So here, if Allah does with SN and his own were sin, then when you act with Hasan, Allah loves you. So that's one why we should when we do things to perfect them, and how would you do with our will behave with your son, you do things right. And you do them beautifully.

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

Like you take care of the details, the form, but also the content, make sure that it's beautiful, and it functions in everything that you do

00:41:11 --> 00:41:20

in religious and in non religious terms. Now in religious terms, that's easy to see. But it's important to remember

00:41:21 --> 00:41:29

a thing meaning do your Salah with its con with perfection with a Hassan How do I do that?

00:41:30 --> 00:42:12

You say you do it in form, and spirit, form and content how meaning you learn the obligations, you learn this sooner you do it on time, you don't delay it. You respond to the event, you do it in JAMA and from the beginning from tech beer to the slim you're doing it according to the Sunnah of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So this is what a form of SN and the more that you do have that the more that Allah has Zota loves you for it, because you care about the Salah, same thing with fasting same same thing with Zika hajj and umrah the more that you learn how to the more Allah loves you. And the How to is the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallaahu Salam, but is that enough?

00:42:14 --> 00:42:34

What do you need also the content. So you concentrate, and you have who sure in it presence of mind and humbleness before him Subhan Allah to Allah, concentration, do sincerity loss, because that's the spirit of everything that you do. So when you do it with the sun, Allah loves you.

00:42:36 --> 00:43:05

So that is true with all acts of worship, when you want to do them. Allah loves what we do them right? Not casually, not offhand not simply to dismiss them because you want to do them and you want to forget about them. So that's a very different attitude. That's not so fun. And that's not it can't but like somebody who's engrossed in his hobby in the thing that makes him happy, they give it time and care until it comes out. Right? So is Salah.

00:43:06 --> 00:43:26

So is reading the Quran, it's not I go I'll read whatever, read it. Right pronunciation, right presence of mine, or there's something I don't understand, let me go and understand, care about it. And the more that you care, the more that it means. So this is religiously, but all also inwardly deeds.

00:43:27 --> 00:43:40

Right? Not only religious deeds, because that hadith is general. When you do some thing Allah wants you to do a try to why is it that inwardly deeds, Allah wants perfection from us, or SN?

00:43:41 --> 00:43:52

Now for a couple of reason. Because the more that you enhance, and improve the things that you do, even in worldly sense, the more that you help people around you

00:43:54 --> 00:44:12

improve the quality of what you produce. And you protect people from harm when you do this and you inspire them to act and do it better. And if you do that for the sake of Allah, hazarded, it's a brother, that if in your head, you're saying that, okay, if I'm driving

00:44:14 --> 00:44:49

and I'm driving right with it on an SM mean, I'm not harassing the person or to the right or the person to the left. I'm not harming anyone observing the speed limit I'm doing doing it right. Why are we doing it right? Even if there is no cop, and there are no cameras, why are you doing it? Right? Because I heard this hadith that Allah azza wa jal loves it that if I were to do this, I do it with a son. So not harming anyone. And then following the law. And if you do this, if I and he and she all of us do this, there'll be fewer accidents, fewer pain, fewer misery.

00:44:50 --> 00:44:53

When you line up to buy something,

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

just queuing up for something and how you stand for it should indicate

00:45:00 --> 00:45:09

Your Eman and she indicates your UCLA card should indicate your love for Allah azza wa jal because what because you want to perform it with ESSA, it needs to be right.

00:45:12 --> 00:45:15

So I've seen people who when they shop, they take their shopping carts outside,

00:45:17 --> 00:45:26

and they don't return it back. They leave it in the parking lot. And he may say to yourself, Well, everybody's doing it, why shouldn't I? And you leave it in that spot? Is that it?

00:45:28 --> 00:46:01

Or is that a con? No. They what is the essence if even if nobody else is doing it? What's the essence to take it back? Even if you're not going to be penalized for it, even if you did not insert a coin, and you don't want your coin back? Nothing, none of that. But the Sun is what? You hold yourself. And I Help You I hope you remember this. You hold yourself to higher standards, because you're a servant of Allah azza wa jal, and you know that Allah created all of this with a lesson, every inch of it with our son, why should you go against his wishes and corrupted and spoil it?

00:46:02 --> 00:46:16

Then you preserve the son of Allah as the origin by acting in NSN. So I'll take it all the way inside. And if I somehow find something that had dropped from the shelf and the in the grocery store, I'll pick it up and put it back.

00:46:17 --> 00:46:38

No one sees you and no one needs to commend you. And there is no certificate of greatness. But I realized that Allah has Zoda loves this, it's clan, so you do it for Allah azza wa jal, no one is going to trip over it is not going to spoil. It's not going to rake Gila as Odin. If that becomes you,

00:46:39 --> 00:47:03

then that becomes a habit. And that becomes a standard, then everything that you do, will have that quality in it, you'll come naturally to so how you drive how you cross the road, right? How we greet people, when you come to the masjid, we would not need to tell people don't double park. Don't park in illegals or you don't need to tell anybody. While everybody's doing it. You're not anybody.

00:47:05 --> 00:47:06

Can you think like that?

00:47:07 --> 00:47:20

I'm not I'm this is not arrogance. This is simply holding yourself to the standards that Allah wants you to hold yourself to. And not anybody. I'm not going to park like that. I'm not gonna lie because everybody's lying.

00:47:23 --> 00:47:43

I'm not going to cheat because everybody is cheats, I'm not going to commit that sin because everybody does it. So this is the SN that Allah has Zoda loves. And when you remember that it's conditional, Allah loves it. When I do this, you will start practicing SN everywhere. So if the doctor becomes a medicine, right,

00:47:44 --> 00:47:50

then he will heal people, not for the sake of money, not for the sake of fame.

00:47:51 --> 00:48:10

But for the sake of helping people. If an engineer or an architect or a developer, designed and built homes, they will design and build homes, that will be the best for people not for the sake of money, you still need money, but you're doing it what even if no one is watching, you're not going to cut corners.

00:48:11 --> 00:48:17

Why Allah loves it when I do it, right. Because when I build a home, someone is going to live there.

00:48:18 --> 00:48:56

Their family is going to be there. I'm responsible for it, it has to be the best that it can, when you do electrical wiring, a plumbing job, right? Whatever it is, I'll do the best that I can. Not whatever I can so I can take their money the best that I can. Because someone is going to drive this, somebody is going to dependent on it. And Allah loves it when it's right. And if I do that, perhaps Allah azza wa jal will send those types of people to you. Right? So here, Allah is the loves it when you do things, right. Right. And that is excellence in Islam,

00:48:57 --> 00:49:39

which is I, at the end of the chapter, I highlight it is different from excellence in capitalism. Capitalism will push you to excel, but only to a certain level. And when no one is watching will take advantage of you, that will take your money. So there is no morality in capitalism, and you don't care about the person, you care about the product. And as long as you can convince them to buy you'll keep doing this. But a person who does things things right, they will do it for Allah azza wa jal, and if you don't need this thing, they'll tell you don't buy it. Because that is a sin. You don't need it. This phone is not different than the one that was issued last year. Don't buy it.

00:49:41 --> 00:49:46

That is the sand that Allah azza wa jal loves caring about other people, and what happens to them.

00:49:47 --> 00:49:59

So remember, this hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. Allah loves it. When you do things you do them right. So do things that around you, right? And as Allah azza wa jal has

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

done has filled this world with a SAN add to it. Please don't take away from it. Because we have so many of us humans today that corrupt on this earth and that spoil the gifts of Allah azza wa jal and they destroy it. We don't need yet another person to do that. So be always wherever you are, wherever you sit wherever you go, a net positive,

00:50:24 --> 00:50:30

a better that is we know even if we don't know but Allah knows you're better because you're here

00:50:32 --> 00:50:58

and you better because when and you're better because you visited so do things better and hold yourself to that standard and let the motivation be the love of Allah zodion Perhaps if we put an effort there, one of these things could be the things that could forgive our sins. Allahu Allah. So hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen give you a chance in sha Allah to ask questions let me know if you have any particle lofi

00:51:01 --> 00:51:04

or anything online that's fine as well in sha Allah if there's something

00:51:06 --> 00:51:09

I'll give you a minute in sha Allah to think about it

00:51:14 --> 00:51:15

yeah, she's

00:51:18 --> 00:51:19

got me said I'm gonna have to love it again

00:51:27 --> 00:51:28

I'm sorry I cannot hear

00:51:31 --> 00:51:32

that there's a lot of

00:51:40 --> 00:52:13

Baraka lafay Come I'll repeat this inshallah it's not me I mean Baraka Luffy come but I'll convey it so that those who have made it will will appreciate that so this sister is saying that she believes that the book was made with a lot of perfection because the the quality of the book the colors and the design and all of that indicates care in the book. So for for the designers for the editors for the publishers I'm just sharing that so that we would thank them for that Baraka Luffy for that for that feedback about like a lot of Vic Zakouma mafia

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


00:52:25 --> 00:52:28

I need you to repeat it. I'm sorry. Yeah, come closer.

00:52:39 --> 00:52:40

Okay, so,

00:52:41 --> 00:53:20

so we mentioned that forgive others so that Allah would forgive you? What happens if I cannot forgive someone? Does that mean that Allah azza wa jal is not going to forgive me? That's your question. It does not mean that it does not mean that. But what we said is that it prompts you, it motivates you to be more forgiving. Now, it's not a condition, you don't have to forgive every single person in your life, for every single thing that they have done. You have the right if you have been wrong not to forgive. And that is absolutely your prerogative, right, this is yours. But we're saying that if you think about how much Allah Zoda is willing to forgive us, of all the things

00:53:20 --> 00:53:39

that we have done, and if you if you think about the other person, that if they ask Allah to forgive them, that even that could be all the things that they have done could be forgiven. That kind of kind of paves the way for you to become a more forgiving person. And if you can't forgive that person, now, it could happen later.

00:53:40 --> 00:54:12

So you don't need to trouble yourself with the fact of I can't forgive him now. Does that mean that I'm an unforgiving person? It could come later. But at least what absorb the fact that Allah Zodac is so forgiving that there is no sin that is too big. And slowly you'll be able insha Allah to adopt that same thing with people. There's always a limit to humanity, right? can't forgive absolutely everything. But we'd be more forgiving than we are now. And that's what we want. Allah

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

loving Yeah.

00:54:19 --> 00:54:24

Now, so I probably will just announce it. So happy bookstore in a tobiko.

00:54:25 --> 00:54:36

That's the that's the place that sells it. So when we bought it last time, we bought it from that store, right? So they still have copies and shell it's about 20 minutes from here or something like that. So I hope it's easy for you.

00:54:38 --> 00:54:40

Yeah, one online question.

00:54:49 --> 00:54:59

How do we train ourselves to accept something that goes against what we want and trust Allah azza wa jal, so something is upsetting you as angering you. distressing you

00:55:00 --> 00:55:23

And you see it? And it seems like you keep seeing it. And how do you train yourself to accept it? And to trust Allah azza wa jal. Now by accepting the thing, we don't mean by it, to like it necessarily, right? There are things that you see that are upsetting to Allah azza wa jal, we should never accept those, right. But if you mean accepting it in terms of,

00:55:24 --> 00:55:48

I can't change it. So I have accept the reality that it's there. If you mean that type of acceptance, then there are ways to accept it. And the ways to accept it or to train yourself to accept it is to always remind yourself who is behind it, and who is allowing it to happen. So interrogate yourself, ask yourself, Why am I resisting this. So if I'm telling you, if I'm telling you,

00:55:50 --> 00:56:08

there is, I don't know something X, Y, and Z, bad, bad, that is bad happening now. You would resist that you would hate that you'd feel tight. If I tell you what, as long as it's happening, we'll try our best to remove it. But as long as it's happening, understand that Allah is allowing it to happen.

00:56:09 --> 00:56:17

Okay, you'll be more accepting of that write, not necessarily loving it, but more accepting, because you realize, there's a reason why.

00:56:18 --> 00:56:33

And if you train yourself to believe that there is a reason why even beyond what you can conceive of, then you trust him Subhana wa Tada to eventually show you that reason, teach you what it is, and eventually to remove that hardship.

00:56:34 --> 00:56:48

So the things that we hate are categories, things that we it's a loss, something that I love, and I lose it, how do I accept its loss? One is the with time,

00:56:49 --> 00:56:55

time heals. But beyond that, also to ask yourself again, is this loss permanent?

00:56:57 --> 00:57:24

If I lose something, whatever it is, is this loss permanent? No, no loss is permanent. So if you lose a loved one, will they be resurrected again? And will I see them again? Okay, if I lose money, if I lose a job, anything in the dunya, will Allah compensate me? So have you lost anything? No, there is still pain. But if you think about it, in those terms, Your pain will decrease.

00:57:25 --> 00:57:43

And if you know that Allah rewards you, for every minute, for every second of discomfort and pain that you go through, you realize that there is benefit in it. Right? And sometimes there's greater benefit in what distresses you than in the things that comfort you.

00:57:44 --> 00:57:45

You believe that?

00:57:46 --> 00:57:56

Right? So the things that discomfort you that upset, you have a quality of sending you to Jannah more than the things that comfort you.

00:57:57 --> 00:58:01

Right? So there's a Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam,

00:58:02 --> 00:58:15

when he said that lay as Allah, Allah will mean he had the MC of the OMA Allah He hotly. So affliction will continue to surround or visit a believer until they will walk on this earth without a sin.

00:58:16 --> 00:58:31

Without they will walk on this earth without a single sin. So some of the commentary, commentaries, they said, This is because affliction has greater qualities or ability to remove sin than good deeds.

00:58:33 --> 00:58:38

Why? He says, because a lot of the good deeds that we do, we do but they're imperfect.

00:58:40 --> 00:58:47

You do, but you forget you daydream. There's not a lot of sincerity in them that so they're not really that strong.

00:58:48 --> 00:58:50

But when affliction comes, it just wipes clean.

00:58:52 --> 00:59:04

So how do you train yourself? You make dua, and you make a ton of dua, and you ask Allah as urgent and take all that energy that you have all of those emotions and pour them in your DUA,

00:59:05 --> 00:59:47

all of your frustration, all of your anxiety, all of your fear, take it and put it in that DUA and you will feel better and ask Allah for relief and you will see the relief coming to you from Allah subhanho wa taala. So just accustom yourself to the fact that everybody has to lose, nobody actually really loses because you will see it from Allah azza wa jal and that the more that you ask for Allah, the more that Allah will take away though your pain and that in every minute that you're going through this, Allah azza wa jal is removing your sins and is elevating you and is taking care of you. You do this and with time it will be better and better in the last and it's difficult in the

00:59:47 --> 00:59:48

beginning is you with time.

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


00:59:54 --> 00:59:55

I can't hear you. I'm sorry.

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


01:00:17 --> 01:00:20

Will that be held accountable for what I'm sorry?

01:00:22 --> 01:01:05

Okay, so let me see if I understood it because I got half of it maybe. So you have family members, and then immediate family is stopping you from connecting and talking to other family members? Is that it? That's basically it. So is so let's say, for instance, a parent asks you not to talk to your cousins or something like that. So will they be responsible for severing the ties of kinship? There your question? So I mean, first of all, it goes back to whether they really have a good reason for that or not. Sometimes maybe the parents, they do have a good reason, that person is a corrupting influence. They're not really good for you cetera, et cetera. So if they have a good

01:01:05 --> 01:01:44

religious reasons for that, then you listen to them. And they will do not sin because of that. Because if they're trying to protect you, and protect yourselves by that distance, then yeah, listen to them. Actually, that would be the thing that you have to do. If they are transgressors, in that, they're asking you not to talk, but they have crossed Allah's bounds. And they are severing ties of kinship than they sin because of that. They're, you're in a dilemma. Because on the one hand, they are they are your parents asking you not to do or to do something. On the other hand, you know, that you saw, it's supposed to connect with your cousins and what have you. So what should you do, you

01:01:44 --> 01:02:25

will seek the least of two harms, because you can go against your parents, or you can go and it means stop talking to your cousin. So which is the least of two harms, okay, distance from the cousin, rather than the parents because if you go against the parents, is going to be a bigger problem. So you could keep while this is happening, making dua to Allah has totally changed their mind. Yet Allah Allah will fix this and fix this and fix this. But stay close to what your parents want from you. And I know your question is generic in general. And I'm trying to answer a general question so I don't know if the details exactly follow what I'm trying to give Allah Allah, but just

01:02:25 --> 01:02:40

listen to your parents up until a time in sha Allah that they could change their minds. So just keep making dua for them right but not the least of two harms, because both of these things are wrong, but the list of two harms are low at inshallah

01:02:41 --> 01:02:42

salaam Rahmatullah.

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

Steaming is glorification you saying

01:03:14 --> 01:03:18

NAMM, so you're specifically referencing ignore claims code here and your

01:03:20 --> 01:03:22

page 46 Right.

01:03:23 --> 01:03:28

So when he says here in the Arabic Big Daddy Mahabharata, ALEMI he right

01:03:29 --> 01:03:51

combines with a steaming the beloved and glorifying him Yeah, it is on reverence. So that's what it is that Allah has Zota does great, and you stand in awe of him Subhan Allah to Allah in fear that is connected with respect. So it's not just simple fear, but also fear that is connected with the glory of Allah azza wa jal the majesty of him Subhanallah with that that's what it is

01:03:57 --> 01:03:58

objective of a badda

01:04:11 --> 01:04:11


01:04:15 --> 01:04:17

case you shouldn't want to

01:04:19 --> 01:04:20

work with

01:04:21 --> 01:04:22


01:04:24 --> 01:04:24


01:04:26 --> 01:04:30

table standards and submission first.

01:04:33 --> 01:04:56

Now Now it's not gonna hurt so good question actually. So the question is that the a bed of Allah azza wa jal he says when we defined it, we said that they divided the bed of Allah azza wa jal is complete submission to Allah azza wa jal and complete love complete surrender with utmost love. So this is complete and that complete. So the question here, do they go hand in hand, right? Or did they begin together right? So what you said

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


01:05:00 --> 01:05:45

One is prerequisite for the other does one follow the other or do they cannot kind of proceed together. We say in the beginning in the beginning or it, it'd be more surrender than love. So the person who just accepts Islam, they may have some love for Allah, Allah zodat. And that is why they want to become Muslim. But we cannot imagine whether it's a person who is just growing into Islam or a person who is embracing Islam, we can imagine that their love for Allah azza wa jal at that moment when he's just starting to practice is a great love. But what they're asked to do is to surrender. Surrender, first embody, and at least in a minimal way, in spirit as well. So in body in terms to

01:05:45 --> 01:06:02

Salah pray, will do, right fasting, that thing grows the love of Allah azza wa jal. So the submission and the surrender grows the love of Allah xodus. So the love of Allah, there's always a minimum, that is required for a person to be Muslim, but it grows with time.

01:06:04 --> 01:06:34

And it gets greater and bigger, the more that you worship Him, Subhanahu wa to Allah. And then we'll see some of these Hadith that will show that, that the more that you do, the more the love grows. But you can't wait for that love to exist, especially in its greatest form, to start worshipping Allah first and that will worship no worship comes by sometimes fearing Allah azza wa jal compelling yourself for worship, hoping for Jana, whatever motivation and then love is

01:06:35 --> 01:06:51

the fruit of these things. So the more that when you worship Allah out of fear, worship Allah out of hope, develop a relationship with Him Subhan Allah to Allah and know him better than you get the fruit which is the love of Allah subhana wa Taala at that intensity and magnitude that we talked about.

01:06:55 --> 01:07:06

Yes, so that submission is the key that will take you to the level of Allah azza wa jal at those higher levels, but it needs perseverance and patience and dua for you to get that fruit.

01:07:17 --> 01:07:17


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


01:07:25 --> 01:07:50

you Yeah, so the Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam habla Malik and Allah He had women who were in KL the most beloved day to Allah azza wa jal is the most consistent even if it is small. That does relate to this right? And I'm going to add that hadith is in the book. So it's one of the Hadees that we have talked about insha Allah so just remind me the last Zoda that when we talked about talk about that, to connect it to this one, so it's a good connection

01:07:51 --> 01:07:55

There's me cry I'm sorry, because I've neglected the sisters Yeah. Yeah. You

01:07:57 --> 01:07:58


01:08:04 --> 01:08:44

what is what is the motivation you have for someone who wants to practice SN and they're a Buddha, but they are not motivated? So the easiest thing is to ask Allah for it. So ask Allah so if you realize that something is important, but you have to have the energy to do it, or you don't have the mood to do it, ask Allah for it, Allah helped me to practice this way or to improve my a Buddha. Also understand, you know, in addition to this, that Allah azza wa jal loves this. So if you want the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and if you have the love of Allah, you have everything. So you want the love of Allah, then start practicing smaller acts of Sn so you can start small SN and how

01:08:44 --> 01:09:26

you speak SN and how you respond. So and how you take care of animals, how you deal with your siblings, SN and your DUA, but just start improving. And then when you add small things in your life, Allah Zoda is done for his six pinata Allah, Allah opens other doors of Sn. So do SN. Because in terms of our bringing the sun into your life, through dua, through incremental acts of Sn small acts of ESA and maybe also get the assistance of the Dhikr of Allah azza wa jal. So remember Allah more so schedule and plan for

01:09:28 --> 01:09:59

100 stuck for Allah in the morning and 100 stuff Allah at night 100 Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad in the morning and 100 at night. So fill your tongue and your heart and your ears with the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal because when you feel closer to him, Subhan Allah to Allah, you're more likely to do things for his sake. Okay? And take care of you're a badass. So make sure push yourself even if you're not motivated, when it's time for Salah salah. Alright,

01:10:00 --> 01:10:17

Even if you don't feel like at the time for Salah Salah okay at time for will do will do sing away from a haram stay away from the hammer. Okay and listen to the rest of the Hadith that we're talking about Okay, so that's what I can do inshallah

01:10:23 --> 01:10:55

nah nah pray as you are as if Allah is if you can see Allah but if not then Allah sees you and that is definitely is a common law here. That is definitely a way to increase a son that is to see that Allah has Zota is watching you, but bring that in by the Dhikr of Allah azza wa jal because you're gonna forget. So remember Allah has Zota that he's there watching you by the decree of Allah azza wa jal it's the more it's the far the more of hamdulillah the more of all of these ADKAR the closer you RPP him Japan Oh,

01:10:56 --> 01:11:01

okay, so I want to take maybe one more question and then we'll stop yeah

01:11:22 --> 01:11:23

this cruelty back

01:11:33 --> 01:11:34


01:11:41 --> 01:12:24

so how do you maintain a relationship with relatives that you deal with NSN but they reply with ingratitude and hurting you, basically, that's what I do. How do you deal with that? So, you know, first of all, the, someone any, the as the prophets, Allah, Allah wa salam, that and that, he said, I have relatives or pseudo homeboy, Dr. Oni he says, You know, I connect with them and they disconnect from me. I'm good to them and they're bad to me. What do I do? So with prophets, Allah do send me he says, If this is what is true for Ghana to suffer hormonal, as if you are feeding them ashes, Ash, like warm ash or hot ash, meaning because you're doing giving them good and they're

01:12:24 --> 01:12:32

playing with evil, the consequence of what they are doing right, it's as if they are receiving hot coal or hot ash meaning they are punished for that.

01:12:33 --> 01:12:35

Meaning he didn't tell him stop.

01:12:36 --> 01:13:21

Tell them continue. And don't pay attention to how they are replying. Keep with your good because if that's what is happening, Allah reward you for it, and they'd get punished for what they're doing. So don't stop the good that you're doing. So if you're a person who's strong enough to continue to do this, keep doing it. Keep going to keep being kind caring. Okay, taking care of them for Allah xojo Not for their sake but for Allah has Zota even if they don't, right if you're that strong if you're not then you could minimize that relationship right? Because you can take their pain without cutting it completely but minimize to protect yourself from harm but don't forget kindness once in a

01:13:21 --> 01:13:26

while right so minimize if you need to without caught or Rahim

01:13:27 --> 01:13:32

or continue to be as good or even more good if you can do it for the sake of Allah was

01:13:35 --> 01:13:39

there still you really okay go ahead just for you. Okay, go ahead.

01:13:40 --> 01:13:41

Go ahead ask

01:13:49 --> 01:13:52

Is there any difference between the and meditation I'm sorry,

01:13:53 --> 01:13:55

DUA and donation

01:13:57 --> 01:13:58

that allows you to

01:14:01 --> 01:14:02

do meditation

01:14:06 --> 01:14:09

any relationship between the art and meditation

01:14:10 --> 01:14:13

meditation is far inferior to do.

01:14:14 --> 01:14:27

So meditation is not related to a Allah azza wa jal or any divine presence. Meditation just asks you to quiet your thoughts to concentrate to be still control your breathing not to think about things or certainly

01:14:28 --> 01:14:59

think about certain things. Its origins are not from Islam, but from a different religion, Eastern religions. So the source is not right. The practice is incomplete. It doesn't give you what Allah azza wa jal wants you to have. Do I, on the other hand, directs you to whom Allah azza wa jal and you're asking him and you're talking to him and you're concentrating. So it gives you a lot more than meditation. Meditation is a human technique. You're relying on other human beings to teach you and you're relying on your own

01:15:00 --> 01:15:47

Self to benefit your own self. And there is a lot that we can say about meditation but it is inferior right it doesn't help even it could it could calm your nerves yes, there might be some minor secondary benefits to it yeah we can we can see that but the benefit that you truly one doesn't lie in the benefit that you truly want once in connecting with Allah azza wa jal and and talking to him and emptying your head of everything but him so in meditation you need a blank brain or head just to simply be still in Islam we say no, empty your head of everything except Allah has xojo So magnify Him on the outside as you magnify Him on the inside. So that answer

01:15:49 --> 01:15:50

I'm sorry.

01:15:52 --> 01:15:53

correct way to make dua

01:15:54 --> 01:16:01

do is easy. I mean, there are adept manners to it but why is so easy to use? Raise your hands and that's it

01:16:06 --> 01:16:10

oh for you, I mean, you can be agitated and you can make dua you don't need to be calm

01:16:13 --> 01:16:14

liked to work.

01:16:17 --> 01:16:58

With that's true, but I mean, that persons are people who are drowning on a ship and the crying to Allah, Allah save us. That's a DUA and Allah answers that. It doesn't have to be calm and peaceful, right? It can be but it doesn't have to. So it is between you and Allah azza wa jal right so you could be at a time so agitated so screaming to Allah, Allah helped me. It's not that you had there's other of lowering your voice, adorable cantata, raffia, right. You know, plead with Him and let it be privately. But it doesn't mean that if you scream your job because of your abilities, your emotions, Allah is not going to accept it. So as I'm saying dua is one of the easiest thing that you

01:16:58 --> 01:17:15

can have. Now if you want to have say manners we can say, face the Qibla raise your hands have Waldo on it, in the beginning, praise Allah azza wa jal with the appropriate phrases that connect to what you want to say. So yeah, Karim give me our hub give me a rahimian afford it fairly.

01:17:17 --> 01:17:54

Since Allah and salam upon the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam All this is due right and it's good to have all of this but these are added so I'd also don't want to complicate it by saying unless you have this you can make dua dua is as simple as you feel something and see Allah yada yada I mean this and that. And then if you want to observe the Adapt go ahead and observe it but I'm not going to say unless you observe the ADEPT demanders of the art you can make it no sense why do is easy so practice it whenever you feel make dua make us you're walking the dog to the masjid outside the mister to your car, something pops into your head make dua

01:17:55 --> 01:18:15

just like they could have Allah has just make dua right? You remember somebody had passed away make dua, somebody somebody in distress make dua, okay, so that you'd be connected all the time to Allah azza wa jal that way. Allah Allah so you've just come along here i Subhanak along with him dig a shadow Allah Allah inlanta stuff, go to where they could hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen
