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

swindled hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah. Audio Savio, salaam

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

la Malema main founder and founder of him alimta now is in a minority but I mean

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

continue inshallah with the advice, valuable advice and the will of ignatia Amara Hema Allah

00:00:22--> 00:00:43

and maybe who knows inshallah maybe we'll finish it tonight we'll see inshallah, how much were you able to cover? Last thing we talked about and it's a section about onegevity law as a surgeon, speaking in private intimately with Allah subhanho wa Taala and having this conversation with him, and some of what you can say.

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

And we explored some of it and we continue with it insha Allah,

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

I'm not going to read everything that he has because some of it is redundant and some of it inshallah is not

00:00:55--> 00:01:04

particularly useful, especially when it's translated, but the parts that are useful inshallah I'll translate. So when he says, what about the humans for some of them?

00:01:07--> 00:01:14

what they were saying to Allah subhana wa tada when they were talking to him along the interstate 30 Look, I'm sorry, look.

00:01:15--> 00:01:23

Oh Allah subhana wa Tada, this is he speaking to a lower she's speaking to a lot closer. Yeah, inshallah.

00:01:24--> 00:01:29

It seems like to me, this is like, Yeah, okay. So it says the Allah,

00:01:30--> 00:01:36

me asking for forgiveness while persistent in my disobedience is baseness.

00:01:37--> 00:01:39

No, lacks nobility.

00:01:40--> 00:02:24

But at the same time, he says we're in a third key distill forum, it automatically adds, but he says, but at the same time leaving asking for forgiveness, knowing at the same time how vast Your mercy is, is helplessness is an ability. Meaning as if he is saying he's talking to Allah and talking to himself. At the same time. He's saying I'm caught between these two things. I'm asking for forgiveness. But I'm thinking to myself, I'm asking for forgiveness. And the same time I continue to do the bad things that I'm doing. So how does that make me look in front of Allah has his origin a persistent, disobedient person who knows what's wrong? and knows the effect of it and

00:02:24--> 00:02:38

still continues to do it and then when he is done, goes back and asks Allah Subhana Allah Allah for forgiveness. So it says what type of character is this when I'm standing before you? I know what's wrong, I continued to committed I asked for forgiveness and I go back.

00:02:39--> 00:02:50

So is feeling shamed. And that's what mercy that's what sin brings with a chain, rather than the dignity of obedience of Allah subhana wa tada

00:02:52--> 00:03:28

where a person feels strong and loved by Allah humble, but also loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And closer to him and obedience of law gives you strength, strength of spirits strength of a man and also subpoena law, strength of body, even strength of body physically. When the last panel with Allah wants you to do something, obedience, and the more of it the more that you will have that Allah will make you physically strong because of it. Send us all the opposite, weakness in spirits, weakness in emotions, weakness in mind and weakness in body as well.

00:03:30--> 00:03:32

So he says that sin brings shame,

00:03:33--> 00:03:45

but at the same time, and that is a feeling that I think all of us have. How can I ask Allah subhana wa Allah to forgive me and I am so sinful, so impure.

00:03:47--> 00:04:33

And so some of us decide or the shaitaan whispers to them. Oh, stop. Stop asking. Stop trying to be good. Because you're not good. give up on yourself. Who are you to come to the masjid and prostrate. You're a hypocrite if you do this. So your world is outside with those type of people, not with the people in the masjid. So you're only pretending so don't pretend and be honest with yourselves and do whatever you want. Just don't be a hypocrite. That is a fluff type of thinking. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala No matter how much you do, how much you disobey, Allah still wants you after each sin and after each disobedience and negligence to say Allah forgive me. That's why the second part

00:04:33--> 00:04:54

of that Muna Jaya, this private conversation and he says, but also if I leave, asking requesting forgiveness, knowing how vast Your mercy is, that it can overwhelm, without any doubt overwhelm all of my sins. That's helplessness. That's true helplessness is for you not even to say a stuff

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

that is absolute utter helplessness. You can be the

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

feeded by sin

00:05:02--> 00:05:14

can be defeated by yourself that desires and every time you say okay, it can be defeated by the whispers of shaitaan. But you shouldn't be ever defeated by the fact that you don't make sense. You don't make mistakes.

00:05:15--> 00:05:34

That should never be the case is too far. Coming back to Allah subhanho wa Taala having that desire that will to do it, even if your body fails, but at least that will the persistence of this is your last line of defense should never lose that.

00:05:35--> 00:06:17

So he says that if I know how merciful you are, and this is what it is that we need to remind ourselves and our brothers and sisters who are almost in desperation, of the forgiveness of Allah, you have to remind them of the vastness of the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and that no type of sin no type of lifestyle can withstand the mercy of Allah you need to remind them of this and you need to remind yourself of that to defeat the shaitaan because of the shape and will do two things to concrete. If he finds that you're too comfortable with sin, it tells you a lot is after giving keep keep doing keep keep keep doing keep doing so what's the medicine then

00:06:19--> 00:06:30

to remember the forgiveness of Allah know you already have remembered a lot of it you already know a lot of it already know all their howdy if you already know the ayah you remember you need to remember the opposite allows punishment

00:06:32--> 00:06:36

and Hellfire because that's your medicine then you too comfortable.

00:06:37--> 00:06:54

But if you're so disturbed by Hellfire and punishment, and what Allah subhanho wa Taala may do because of what you have done. You need to come back and medicate yourself by remembering Heaven, analyst forgiveness and Allah's mercy.

00:06:55--> 00:07:41

He says continues he's come to the hubbub of lamb now a more entertaining unit. It says How many times do you endear yourself to me, you come close to me with blessings, one after the other, and you don't need me. And he says in how many times I seek your elbow Elijah, I seek your punishment I make you want to hate me by disobeying you. And I'm out only in need of you. So he's here comparing and he was talking to a lot as though just comparing two different very different types of things and attitudes. One that is coming from the divine and one that is coming from creation, the one that is coming from divine is to Allah does not need you. But he's saying that he's drawing closer,

00:07:41--> 00:07:45

closer to you wants you to love him by continuously blessing you.

00:07:47--> 00:07:57

So you send and he blesses you. You forget his commands and he blesses you. You send any conceals him, you ask and he gives you and all of these things in order for what?

00:07:58--> 00:08:14

So that you'd come back to him and love him and worship him. So he says, You're coming closer to me, and you don't need me. You want me to love you and you're doing all of these things for me to love you. And you don't need me and I who needs you, with every breath.

00:08:15--> 00:08:24

I'm doing the opposite. I'm running away from you. I'm doing everything that brings on your hatred and your anger. So that is the difference between them.

00:08:26--> 00:08:36

He says he or Allah, are you going to punish us with Hellfire and you make the heat settled in our hearts? Here is hope.

00:08:37--> 00:09:18

Here is hope that when you look at your life and you look at everything that you've done, and all the opportunities that you missed, especially by the way, this is good to remind a person of when they're close to death when they're close to dying, and they may be afraid and terrified them. And maybe the opportunity may present itself to you that you're next to a person who is about to die and St Vincent to himself what's going to happen to me what is going to happen to me at that moment. You want them to think the best of the one who created them, not terrify them think the best of one or the one who created the meaning telling them Allah azzawajal made you a Muslim and Allah His own

00:09:18--> 00:09:44

forgiving, All Merciful and what is waiting for you? Is it all forgiving God so think the best of Allah subhana wa tada and you still have some breaths left, say a stuck little line that you know in a lie because the person who dies while saying this will go to general having the best of Allah subhanho wa Taala because this will prompt them to repent and be close to him. Anyone who is going to die must die thinking the best of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

so here is that hope that should never leave our hearts it should never be overwhelming to the extent that all of us believe that we've given the rite of passage into heaven and safe to them Hellfire but at the same

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

time he's saying, yeah Allah you made this stuff hate settle in our hearts, are you going to punish us? And then he's saying, I don't think that you will do so he's hoping. I don't know I don't think that you're going to do so. And if you do so you are going to to us with people or put us in Hellfire with people that we've always opposed for your sake. Meaning Yeah, Allah Subhana Allah is as if he's reminding himself and besieging Allah, through the good things that he has done meaning Yeah, Allah, we have taken these people who are opposed you as our enemies as well as our opposition as well. So don't unite us in hellfire.

00:10:38--> 00:11:15

If you are the people have to hear that we are the people that who you love. And we oppose the people that you hate, don't put us together and hellfire. And that is by the way of way, a manner of making up. That is you can ask Allah subhanho wa Taala by the good things that you have done. And if you remember the famous Hadith and I don't remember really, if we have gone through this hadith in Rio de Sala hain, or not, maybe we have maybe we're not remind me, of the three who are trapped in the cave, that we do that. So the three who are trapped in the cave and remember that they asked Allah Subhana Allah to Allah by their good deeds. Your last panel what I didn't know that I have

00:11:15--> 00:11:27

done this and I've done this for your sake, relieve our pain, remove this run. So it's the same thing you can ask a last panel on the alibi, the good things that you believe or you suspect

00:11:28--> 00:12:06

that you have done that really for the sake of Allah, whether it's a Hajj or Umrah or a Salah or a sadhaka or raising your kids or being your parents, whatever it is here Allah, I have done this and I have done that. And it's not that you reminding a lot of your favors Not at all, but you're asking Allah for it to Allah, by the fact that he was able to do this for your sake. And if you have accepted it, please yeah, Allah grant me this as well. So this is a legitimate way to ask Allah subhana wa, Allah for things that you want. Again, not reminding a lot of the favors that you have done him because you haven't done a lot any favors. These are all for you. But as long as you have

00:12:06--> 00:12:13

made this possible for me, yeah, Allah also grant me this, by your generosity and mercy also grant me this as well.

00:12:14--> 00:12:36

And he says Watson even harder, and he says better than all of this better than everything that we have said so far, is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when he returned from ATI when the tribe of 13 rejected him, so I'm going to read the following headings. Now the following heading is famous. According to the standards of the scholars of Hadith, this hadith is weak. There's something missing him.

00:12:38--> 00:12:48

But even those who have said that this week, a chain is weak, they said, you can sense from it. The words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you can sense from it because it's, it's so

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

close to Allah subhana wa Taala, and so eloquent.

00:12:54--> 00:13:36

So now according to historians, they say, we can take this and we can compliment because we know the ended incident took place when without for sure. So we can complement this though it's weak, we can complement our history and understanding what happened, even with something weak like that. So just understand that when we're reading it, we're reading something that scholars of Hadith or some of the scholars have, he said that it is weak, but it is also beautiful. So what is he saying? If this is truly what the prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam said Allahumma ileka Escuela de la quwata Joaquin let the Hara Tijuana and unless he Allah to you, that I complain about my weakness, and

00:13:36--> 00:14:15

about my helplessness, and how insignificant or weak I am with people, or how they how will they look at me and how you know miserably they treat me so he's saying he Allahumma ESCO in IKEA Allah, I'm complaining to you about my weakness. Botha who was killed at the Hilton, meaning I can't do anything about this. I'm helpless of how they react and how they reject and how they punish. I can't do anything about it. Or Hawaii. I didn't know that when I talk to them. I'm so insignificant and almost nothing in their eyes. Here, complaint is the complaint to whom?

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

A law surgeon.

00:14:19--> 00:14:27

You can complain to humanity, if you wish. But the best complaint is the complaint to a law surgeon.

00:14:29--> 00:14:45

So I don't want to burden you even in law. I don't want to burden you because sometimes it's good to complain to other humans. You vent. You share your problems, especially if the purpose of complaint is for you to receive advice from them. That's good.

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

But the best complaint is a complaint to a lawsuit and this is what yaku alehissalaam said in the Koran, international bethey were his knee Illallah Indeed, I only complain

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

About my sadness and sorrow to Allah surgeon. And when you give your complaint to Allah, you're complaining to the one who can solve your problem when complaining to humanity, especially about something that Allah has done to you. Or somebody at one of the setup, heard somebody complaining about his situation to another human faces yeah Fulani.

00:15:25--> 00:15:45

Illa insha Kota maniar hamidah Menachem, he says so and so he didn't do more than complaining about the merciful to the one who likes mercy. If you're complaining, especially about something that Allah has done, sickness and this and this, and this to another human being, is saying you're complaining about who?

00:15:47--> 00:15:58

Allah who is full of mercy to another human being who really, I mean, has some mercy but a little bit of it or not, just a little bit. So are you complaining too, and about?

00:15:59--> 00:16:10

So the best complaint is to go to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is a good habit to have that if you're going through some trouble and rough time before you think about let me complain to so and so on.

00:16:11--> 00:16:52

Raise your hands and complain to Allah as urgent about anything. Problems with children problems with parents problems with spouses problems at work, problems in life, internal problems, external problems, anything that you, your ally, complained to you about this, and I complained to you about that. The purpose of this complaint is of course, not just to talk that a lot will remove this hardship. So your ally complained to you about this. And what what so and so I said to me, and what this so and so has done to me, you don't necessarily wish them harm, but you're complaining to Allah about that pain that you have. And when you complain to Allah azza wa jal and you leave that pain

00:16:52--> 00:17:34

with Allah, Allah is soon or about to remove it. If you complain to humanity, they may help or you may not. But the problem with it is that you forget about Allah subhanho wa Taala when you complain to humanity, so the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't go back to complain to any other human. Well, who did he complain to, according to this immediately allows him to do a lot you see my situation what is happening to me, I complained to you about what they are doing and how they are reacting. Aloma and double mustafi in our entire hamura have been here Allah, you are the rub of the weak and the oppressed, and you are the Most Merciful. And Rob here, when we say you're up, what

00:17:34--> 00:17:34

is Rob?

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

Rob is the one who takes care of you.

00:17:40--> 00:18:20

He creates you from nothing sustains you, and provides for you and takes care of you. That's what the meaning of Rob is. So when you see our A B, and meet my Creator, my sustain or my provider, and he who takes care of me. So if you want to remember one of them, remember, he who takes care of me, or B is the one who takes care. So when you're asking a lot as though jelly or a B? Or who who takes care of me, then ask because you're asking him by the fact that he takes care of you to keep doing that. So he's saying you're the one who takes care of the weekend, the oppressed, and you are the most merciful and therapy.

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

You're my caretaker.

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

You are the one who guides me and therapy Elementor coloni Who are you gonna leave me to

00:18:31--> 00:18:40

Elementor Academy Illa Eden yetta Harmonix to one who's distant or frown in my face and mistreat me?

00:18:41--> 00:18:51

Oh, either other women Doctor Who Emery or to an enemy, that who has control over my affairs, control over me. That is if you leave me

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

who will take care of me.

00:18:55--> 00:19:18

So are the order of possibilities. So he says in about eating into harmony, someone who is distant, who will frown in my face. And by the way, anyone who is other than Allah Subhana Allah has his portion of that distance, even if they are close to you, because there's still distant and they'll never be as close to you as last origin.

00:19:19--> 00:19:56

And no matter how you ask, Allah has his own agenda, he will never be bored with you. If you ask humans, even the closest one, after some time, they will say what? Okay ahead enough. Your problem is not solved yet. Right? Maybe you can talk to someone else or you know, try something different. But as humans we have a capacity after which you just can't. We can't handle it anymore. Not Allah zildjian. So he's saying Yeah, Allah, Who are you going to leave me to? If you're not going to give me help? And champion mutual you're going to lead me to a distant one who's distant from me, not close to me doesn't care about me who if I tell him anything, he will frown and he'll tell me to go

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

away or to an enemy.

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

An enemy or a plane enemy who has control over me in them jaquan Vika autobahn Alinea, Fela Abadi, this is beautiful. If you're not angry with me then I don't care. Okay, I don't care about anything else.

00:20:14--> 00:20:18

So if you're still happy with me, then let them do whatever they're gonna do.

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

And this is here you see that in this says if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is moving from a stage where you're feeling that pain, to a stage where you're transcending that thing, you mean

00:20:33--> 00:21:14

so when you're when you're, when you're talking to Allah subhana wa diallel, what prompts you to speak is the pain, right? That's why you're making Do I have this pain when you keep making and then this depends on you that time that it takes, it depends on you and your heart and how close we are to Allah surgeon. But then you will move from the period of where you are feeling pain, to a time when you will say that pain does not matter anymore, because now I'm in the proximity of a loss origin. So then he says in the mirror can be kochava, buena la fellow Valley, if you are not angry with me, after all of this after everything that is happening, and maybe, you know, given everything

00:21:14--> 00:21:39

that's going to happen in the future, as long as you are not angry with me, then I don't care. But then he continues we're like in Athletica here, oh, sorry. But being safe from harm, welfare, having good welfare is better for me. That is, here, here are the possibilities to be tested or not to be tested. He says he or Allah not to be tested is easier for me.

00:21:41--> 00:22:18

So again, reflecting on something that I've said before, should anybody asked a lot that they should be tested? Ie Allah punish me in this slide before you punish me in the hereafter? Should we say that? Never. Never say that? Never say Allah punish me. Yeah, Allah test me. Yeah, Allah azza wa jal, you know, whatever, bring whatever misery upon me, never see them. Because as long as Allah zildjian has saved you, there is a portion, or there's a space for you to say Allah forgive me. And he can forgive you without that test, without you having to go through some pain. But you know, have no idea if you will be able to withstand or not.

00:22:19--> 00:22:22

You have no idea if you'll be able to tolerate or not.

00:22:23--> 00:22:32

Because it can happen. And I've just recently I'm not going to share the story with you. But I've recently heard of someone who did that. And said, Yeah, a lot. I'm afraid of hellfire.

00:22:34--> 00:22:38

From a bad thing that I've done. If there's going to be punishment for it, punishment,

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

and the pain,

00:22:42--> 00:23:12

the pain I'm going to share with you but I'm the pains of how long he cannot tolerate it. You cannot tolerate it. And the life is almost over of that person. I hope I'm sure a lot the likes and their life and give them qb anila the life is almost over just because of a simple job that you can say. So he says the alpha being saved from being from being tested and punishment is better for me. But if you're going to decide the audible, I mean that there's going to be some test. I'll endure it and I will be happy with it as long as what

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

what

00:23:15--> 00:23:38

linear can pick up on you're not angry with me. So as a panelist, this will give you motivation. Even if you are tested and if it's hard. If you believe when you've imagined that Allah has loaded is looking at you and you believe that you are being nilda good with Allah as a surgeon or you're trying your best to be good with Allah and you're coming close to him and Allah smiling in your face. That will make it easy to

00:23:40--> 00:23:46

then you will say to yourself within it doesn't matter what few more days of testing if you're not angry with me, that's fine.

00:23:47--> 00:23:56

Whatever pain last few days, few months few years is going to go away. But as long as you're not angry with me, I'm fine.

00:23:58--> 00:24:11

I'll be fine. Because my life itself will end and I will meet you and you will be happy with me and all of this will be forgotten and hamdulillah so oh the big girl Karim Allah De La Paloma masala, Polly amruta Nia will

00:24:12--> 00:24:21

be soco kisses says, I seek protection and your honorable face that has lit all the darknesses

00:24:22--> 00:24:33

and has reformed the affairs of this life and the next that you would be angry with me or that your anger will descend upon me. Like ultra hot.

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

I'll seek offering excuses and asking for your forgiveness until you are happy with me while I hold our La quwata illa back and there is no power and might accept yours. And through your laws are rigid. So what is he asking Allah subhana wa tada at the end he's saying Yeah, Allah, because he says as long as you're not angry with me, I'm fine. So he's saying here, the Allah I seek refuge in your face.

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

You hon face

00:25:02--> 00:25:15

that has lit all the darknesses physical and metaphorical By the way, there is the darkness of this universe. And the universe is dark except by the light of Allah has the origin.

00:25:16--> 00:25:43

And also metaphorically, there's a darkness here and here, in our minds and in our hearts, and that darkness will be chased away by Allah has served by the light of Allah, the light of the Quran, the light of the sun of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the light of a man will chase that darkness away. That darkness is the darkness of doubt, anxiety, depression,

00:25:44--> 00:26:27

hopelessness, hopelessness, all of these things. That's the darkness and a man Jesus all that away. So if you have this darkness, whether it's even a darkness for the Omar Mohammed salatu salam today, we don't know where to go, and what to do with ourselves. If we think that we're living in darkness, bring in the light of a man and the light of the sun and the light of the Koran and there will be no darkness be the law after that. So, Li seek protection that you'd be angry with me like an ultra hot atharva will continue to ask for forgiveness until you are pleased with us. And then the last statement, however, La quwata illa avec there's no power or mind except with you. If you need

00:26:27--> 00:27:12

energy, you know that they have those energy drinks, which no one should drink, right? We feel so tired and sleepy, you take some energy drink and you go crazy. So this how our La quwata illa Billah is your energy drink? Better? Sharla no side effects. Okay, this is your energy drink if you need to do something. So the hola La quwata illa Allah is not like so sad la However, it's not that it's not for that. It's not for you know, like in LA LA in LA Rajon, it's not that so if you want to do something, and you want a lot help and support, you see the hotel afterwards. A lot more power comes from you. And it will happen for me because of you. This is what you're asking when you sell a house

00:27:13--> 00:27:36

and it's coming from a treasure from gentlemen. So remember that how La quwata illa Billah whenever you want to do something especially if it's difficult, want to learn something you want to do something differently that hovered over the hood and keep saying it loud over and over the inner being Nana Hola, hola de la bella, you're asking a lot as a widget for help from his mind and help to help you.

00:27:38--> 00:27:48

Then he says and if you have a neat you cannot like a hairdryer that you want from Allah subhana wa tada then make Waldo and make it good.

00:27:49--> 00:27:57

You know, a complete model and that's why it's important for us to learn how to make Moodle. So if you've ever studied or if ever studied, you know,

00:27:58--> 00:28:36

the purification for purification and you asking yourself why should we learn all of these things is because when you come to a loss of Hannah with the island the better that you are performing Moodle, the more that Allah would be pleased with you. Because this is why he made it the more that you take care of what Allah wants you to take care of the more that Allah will take care of you. So he says if you make will do and you make will do well and make it work as pray to work as and then praise Allah subhana wa tada makes Allah and Salaam upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and recite the following day. Now the following day that he recites his week, but I'll explain it because the

00:28:36--> 00:28:57

meaning there is beautiful, so I'll explain it in shallow parts of it are authentic, but not in that particular version of it. But the idea behind it is absolutely true. If you ever you need something from Allah subhanho wa Taala one of the reasons for a lot to accept it from you Your job is to put before place before your draw a good deed

00:28:59--> 00:29:07

as if it's like that support that will lift up your even higher and quicker Bismillah to Allah has no diseases make will do

00:29:08--> 00:29:51

complete will do and make sure I can perform toric as and praise Allah in them and say Salaam Salaam upon the Prophet being conscious of what you're saying and then as a lot as origin so the guy that he quotes he says Allah homogeneous Luca Mooji bat your automatic was a theoretic here Allah I'm asking you, for what for what makes your Rama obligatory for me, that is not something that I will do and make me deserve your Rama all the deeds and sayings that will make it so I asked you for all those deeds and sings. And that make your forgiveness also deserved that I will deserve your forgiveness because of whatever they say and whatever I'm going to do as a mama fealty, well, honey

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

Northam equilibrium, and winning every type of good deed and righteousness. Okay. Gaining every type of good deeds

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

And righteousness was Salah, mataman Cooley if and safety from every sin. So here is asking Allah azza wa jal guide me to the deeds and Acts, Acts that will make your Rama deserved, that I will deserved it. I'll make your forgiveness indeed deserved and that I will be able to gain every good deed that I will be able to and be saved from every sin. What Allah letter that leave in vanilla for that do not leave a sin of mine except that you forgive it while I haven't been in there for Watchtower and no distress except that he would remove it when a handwritten here like arriba

00:30:38--> 00:30:52

he Allah coffee Haribo la vida Hajar hamara amin and no need of mine that is pleasing to you except that you fulfill it for me on me so this is a beautiful too hard to memorize. And you can see how comprehensive it is.

00:30:54--> 00:31:08

Then he says also and you can also say the following there are a lot of money as a new co author Joe la Kevin abena Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam so this opens up a side issue or a side issue is about Akita here so I'll explain it in sha Allah.

00:31:09--> 00:31:12

Which is can you see in your

00:31:13--> 00:31:50

Yeah, Allah is ask you by Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that's the question because he's saying here Alemany so Luca was the widow with a Kevin Abby, can you say in your I asked you by Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you do this and do that. So we know that you can ask Allah azza wa jal No, no disagreement with certain things you can ask a lot through his names and attributes he ally asked you that you are Rahmani Raheem, I asked you that you love forgiveness, I asked you that you are the powerful you can ask Allah through his names and attributes can ask Allah has his origin, by your good deeds? Yes, I asked you as we explain the lie asked you by the fact

00:31:50--> 00:32:14

that I love you. I love your profits a lot he was sending them I asked you by the fact that I'm a Muslim, I asked you by the fact that I did this and did that. So you can do that as well. You can ask somebody else as we explained before, by going to someone and asking them to make do out for you that's also permissible. Here, can you ask Allah as the origin by saying I asked you by Mohammed sallallahu wasallam to do this or that? So this is the message here is clear. raffia this

00:32:15--> 00:32:54

question, there's disagreement of opinion about so there's some scholars who say you cannot do this and some scholars who say you can do that and some scholars who say only with Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and no one else, or only with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was alive, but no one knows. And will lo Adam. Yeah, well, the most accurate and the safest opinion is that you cannot. The most accurate and the safest opinion is that it's not legitimate for us to say he ally asked you by Mohamed Salah lo adios in them. Because first of all, it's not a common for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was one incident, one incident when someone goes to the

00:32:54--> 00:33:29

prophets of Allah while he was in them. And he says oh prophet of Allah, he was blind and he says, Oh Prophet, Allah make that for me. That allowed CUNY and he says, You have an option, you can either be patient and you will go to general or I can make it out for you. And Allah will cure you. He says, No make do out for me. So unlike that other woman who was patient, he says, No MC dot for me. He says, then I'll make it out for you. But then go home and make two articles and say the following to her. And in that following drop, it says the word Yahoo ileka that I'm seeking you through Mohamed so long while he was in. So some of the automatic because that's about the only

00:33:29--> 00:33:55

authentic hadith that includes asking Allah through the prophets of Allah what he was sending them, they see, he's asking Allah through the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because their prophet at that time he was making dua, and he was making dua. So as if he was saying, Yeah, Allah, he's making do out for me to accept his to say it this way. So one, that's the Hadith. Second, it's not a common two out of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And if it's a reason for us,

00:33:56--> 00:34:31

to have our job accepted, the profit would make it explicit. And also, it's not a common law of the Sahaba. Afterwards, you don't find the Sahaba after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam if they needed something that would say Allah we asked you why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the most accurate opinion but there is disagreement in the matter. But the most accurate opinion Allah knows best is that no one should ask that by the prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and if there's disagreement about it, definitely there the disagreement is greater if it's someone other than Mohammed Salah alarmism, so don't go to someone else I asked you by so and so on asked by so and so

00:34:31--> 00:34:34

that you give me that, leave that aside, we don't need it. And

00:34:36--> 00:34:52

then he moves and he talks about his taharah and if you want something, pray to Allah Subhana. Allah toric has an offer the drop of istikhara and we're not gonna go through it because we talked about it before inshallah, but that's also good to make istikhara something

00:34:53--> 00:35:00

permanent in our lives, that whenever you're confused about something or you're about to embark about things, you're not

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Sure about or maybe you should,

00:35:02--> 00:35:13

but you're not 100% is this good for me or is not good for me, it's good to include the two are obviously harder and it keeps you connected to the last panel with Allah. And so panel I mean,

00:35:14--> 00:35:18

you find the people who are going through hardship are the people who are most

00:35:19--> 00:35:27

reliable reliant on instacart. Because they realize because because of hardship, they realize how much they need Allah zildjian but it shouldn't be just them.

00:35:29--> 00:35:44

It should be everybody else, whenever you are own going to buy something, sell something, take a new job, get married, do this or do that. Why not stop and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala is this good for me or not? This doesn't take anything from us.

00:35:46--> 00:36:29

Then he says What do you make of the dunya at the horrible Arabic alkhoury masala perfectly cannot be managed to defeat the Holy pldi it says let your concern in this dunya be to get as close as you can to Allah subhanho wa Taala seek His boundaries and to be included among his only whom he loves. And who love him subhana wa to Allah back. And I will add to it. And let also be your aim be to be with the idea of Allah zodac as far as you can know, as far as you can tell, we cannot be confident or he's already of Allah has already realized, I have no idea. But I can insha Allah with good probability, assume that they are aware

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

in domestic or outside

00:36:33--> 00:37:13

where are the outside domestic inside right inside. So outside the Mr. Inside domestic inside domestic. So I can assume Alhamdulillah with with good probability that if I'm seeking them are seeking them, I will seek them and find them in the message in the gym or reading in the Quran in the study circles. Not that the people in the masjid or in the gym are not flawed. We're very, very, very flawed. But low likelihood, maybe among us, there's one or two likely. So seek them and make them your companions, confidence and friends. Because it's likely in the law that you will learn from them.

00:37:15--> 00:37:49

As a friend, as a companion, you will always learn from your friend and companion. So make them the ones who are close to you because they will bring you closer to Allah azza wa jal. But by the way, that's not enough. Because I think some of us are content with the fact that I'm just going to be around you. Right? There. Just assume we have this tendency, right? It's the tendency of the same, same mentality, I'll be around the same. We don't have things but it's to say, I'll be around the same. And you make draft for me and you bless me and you do this and I'm going to do whatever I want to do later and then I'll come again and you do make do. No, it doesn't work like that. So be next

00:37:49--> 00:37:54

to the Olia and you become aware of Allah subhanho wa Taala yourself

00:37:57--> 00:38:32

by obeying Allah azza wa jal by being close to him by listening to him by being conscious of his commands, by finding out every possible way that you could please Him and doing it. And finding the ways where he that displays a lot of the things that displays a lot and staying away from it. So that Allah could select you because you need to be selected for that position and honored by it. And if Allah azza wa jal honors you with this state, it opens the door and allows you to go in, he says, He will occupy you, occupy you busy with obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala, meaning your body

00:38:33--> 00:39:11

and your mind and your heart and your tongue will be busy with what Allah loves, not with what Allah subhanho wa Taala hates. And you will not pay attention to anything being an alert to anything other than what Allah loves. He will take you away from it from all the other distractions and keep you from him. So for him subhanho wa Taala so you think about it. What is the thing that makes the making the school keeping us busy? our tongues, our eyes, our minds, our hearts, when we wake up in the morning, go to bed? What are we thinking about? Our bodies? What are they doing most of the day? And I know that we're working and hamdulillah and teaching and studying and all of these things, and

00:39:11--> 00:39:50

it's necessary that we do these things. hamdulillah Yes, and that's going to take some of our focus away when are sitting in the masjid. 24 seven. So we're not going to be like people who are you know, aku staying in the masjid for a bar, the only that's understood, but when you're off and when you're done, and you finish your job and finish you know, sitting with your family and you have that extra time what do you do with that extra time? What occupies your mind and what occupies your heart in between those times when you can be close to Allah subhana wa tada? Is it a time that you take to be close to Allah? Because if you want that path of wilayah like think about it. If I'm working, and

00:39:50--> 00:39:57

I have a family. At the same time, I want to improve myself I want to earn another degree and also I want to study when I find time to study.

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

I mean hopefully

00:40:00--> 00:40:37

You push yourself and find time to study I don't want you to say no you won't find them. I'm hoping to say yeah, I'll find time to study I half an hour here 15 minutes there before they sleep before they wake up. You'll always find some time to study right? Yeah, now you agree. Okay? So you'll find time to study inshallah. So meaning that if you really want it the evening law and you ask Allah for assistance, Allah will help you and you'll find time. So if you your desire is not only I want to graduate and become this doctor in engineering, all good hamdulillah or I want to move into a bigger house a bigger car, okay, go go to family law, but do I have a desire also to be a What do you have

00:40:37--> 00:41:20

only Allah xojo someone who is loved by Allah, and who loves Allah and who feels this love in his in her life. And I can share this love with my family. Loving Allah as origin, I can share this love with my friends, my relatives, like people in the masjid Subhana Allah and even giving Dawa I remember, you know, I wanted to tell you something about this thing here. Not Not something major inshallah I was. This morning, I was walking. And then someone, an old two older lady stopped me. And I thought to myself, see, I don't know them. They're not Muslim. And I'm going to mention where they are from. And I thought, first of all, do they know me? And then I thought, do I know them?

00:41:20--> 00:41:40

Because she's like, following me a little bit. So I said, Okay. And, and then they start, she's gonna ask me for directions. And then she's starting to ask me, are you Muslim? Are you this? Are you that? Yeah, okay, and whatever. And she's telling me where she's from, and all of these things. And then she says, I have something for you. And then she gives me this. How do you know Allah has done? What do you think this is?

00:41:41--> 00:42:19

Christian? Right, Christian. And so they can hardly speak English. They can hardly speak English. So they're leading as like dialogue communicators, or preachers of whatever they were trying to do. They're not effective at all. But at least they had a couple of things with them. And they're targeting Muslims, right? This is something for you that we have a concert, there are going to be snacks, especially if you're a refugee, they said that, especially if you're a refugee, you can come and you can we help you this and that. So if you're a person, this is, no everybody can do this. Everybody can hold things in their pocket, and you can give it away. But you must have something

00:42:19--> 00:43:01

inside must have like they had passion for what they have. And for us connected to what we're saying, You must have a love for Allah azza wa jal, and you love Allah so much, that you can share this with others. And then you don't mind them to go to complete strangers and you say, Hello, and I have something for you. And if you'd like you can come and join us in the masjid, we have something for you. Maybe, you know, 99 times out of 100 is not gonna work. But when one person maybe will say Oh, yeah, I like how they smiled how they talk, let me just go and check it out. And they will come. And that all comes from a commitment to Allah azza wa jal. So here, if you are a person who is

00:43:01--> 00:43:29

giving that away, you are a person that Allah is using and things that he likes. If you are a person who is remembering Allah, you are a person who is using his tongue, Allah is making him use his tongue in things that he likes. So think about your tongue. Is it gossiping? Is it backbiting? Is it mocking people think about your eyes thinks about your hand and then say to yourself, let me fix my life? And ask Allah to help me fix it? Let me get closer to him and be

00:43:30--> 00:44:12

a slave of Allah has no agenda. He says, and it's reported from wired or the law and why the new job that when he was about to pass away, he would fall unconscious and wake up, fall unconscious and wake up and he says, interestingly, does not occur. For exotic our general aka Nikola Tesla and Nickleby you hit book. He says, You speak into Allah as a surgeon. He says, I'm going to translate that literally and then find maybe there's a different way to say, he says choke me. Because indeed you know that my heart loves you. Meaning he is saying to Allah azza wa jal, whatever is going to happen to me about it happen whatever pain I go through, let it go and let me go through it. Even

00:44:12--> 00:44:50

though I'm going out of consciousness and out in but he says you know that my heart loves you. No matter what you do, or whatever what happens, you know that my heart loves you. And that's love. That's loving Allah Subhana with Allah even when you find pain, not being unhappy with him but he's saying it doesn't matter what is happening. You know my relationship with you. is beyond this. is beyond that little pain that is happening to my body. You know that my relationship with you is great and solid. I know what you're about. I know that these things are things that I have to go through to be purified and be close to you. So let them happen because you know my heart deep inside

00:44:50--> 00:45:00

I love you. Then he says did we is it morning yet is asking the people around him Is it morning yet? After sometimes somebody can

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

And he says, yes it is. And he says, I seek Allah's protection from a night where it's morning his hellfire. He's very conscious. It's about to die and he's very conscious. Am I gonna go to hell? Are you sick I seek a lot of protection from hellfire. And then he talks. He's talking. He says welcome with death, an infrequent visitor, an infrequent visitor

00:45:26--> 00:46:16

Habiba a loved one that came when needed. Right? When he says here Allah, you say that to understand why does he say a loved one is talking about death came out of Africa when it is needed when I'm needing it. He says yeah, Allah, you know, that I did not love to stay in this dunya. So I could plant trees, and dig rivers so that they would run well injury and harm. But I love to stay in this dunya so I could fast during hot summer days, and pray during long winter nights. And that I would crowd the scholars sitting in the lockers to remember Allah xojo I did not wish for my life to be long, so that I would get more of this dunya because I love it. One of the things that kept me here

00:46:17--> 00:46:40

is saying what I would fast when it's hot. And I would pray during long nights. And I would sit to learn Islam mutiny next to other scholars and students of knowledge. That's the thing that kept me going. And why wish to stay in the dunya. Then this companion who was sitting next to him at Heritage, Nomura said he started crying.

00:46:41--> 00:46:57

So he says, What's making you cry? And he says, Well, I I'm not crying because of any family connections that I have with you. Or because I got any part of the dounia from you, I got any money or anything from it. But I used to learn from you. And now it's going to go away.

00:46:58--> 00:47:06

That's loss. So it's not it's not because you're a family, I'm not losing you. That's painful, to lose family.

00:47:07--> 00:47:22

And it's not because I was getting part of the dunya. And then it's going to be cut when you leave. That's also painful. But then the real connection is the connection of being close to Allah and you will bring me close to Allah, if you go, where would I get this?

00:47:23--> 00:47:32

Who else is going to teach me who's also going to remind me, he says, and I like this one. He says for that the key says Don't cry.

00:47:33--> 00:47:51

The one who desires and seeks knowledge, it will come to him as a loss of Hannah, who was taught Ibrahim alayhis salam, the special friend of Allah azza wa jal, or the special Beloved of Allah hollyrock man, and at that moment in this in his place, there is no end, there is no knowledge and there is no man.

00:47:53--> 00:47:57

And that is beautiful. By the way. God is he's telling him who's the ultimate teacher

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

who Lazo engine allows the ultimate teacher. And this is useful.

00:48:05--> 00:48:48

And this against some Hana law works at two levels, the level of the Supreme scholar, but also the level of the average layman. layperson, for the supreme scholar, a person who has reached the level of each t hat, and some scholars were like that. And they there were not any more scholars around them that they could ask about this thing. They reached the end. Who can I ask? Like, there's no one on this earth to ask anymore? Follow? So the only the only one that we could ask is Allah has the origin. So they would add go to ask Allah allow me to understand this thing and find its evidence and you know, find it in the Quran and find it in the sun. And if they keep asking Allah, Allah will

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

guide them. So that's the level of the Supreme scholar. So he's telling him, if you reach that level, and you ask around, and there's no one to help you, who should you go to

00:49:00--> 00:49:08

go to Allah as urgent because that connection is never disconnected? Never. And He will teach you like he taught Ibrahim who taught Ibrahim

00:49:09--> 00:49:22

Allah azza wa jal, He will teach you know, Brian did not have any earthly teachers. He has a law surgeon like Muhammad Sallallahu it was said to Mukhtar Mohammed, Allah azza wa jal, he had no earthly teachers Allah can teach you.

00:49:23--> 00:49:34

And fortunately for you, you don't have to begin from zero because you have the Quran and the Sunnah. Maybe Allah just needs to open your eyes so you can see this ayah and that Hadith and understand them, and then you will understand what you should do.

00:49:35--> 00:49:59

But also at the level of layperson, it could happen, how you are in a place or in a time you don't have people around you to ask and you try hamdulillah today you know if you don't have it in your city in a neighboring city in another country, email where you can still reach people but if you can imagine a situation like that, when there's no one around you to ask. Absolutely and you do your best and you cannot find it

00:50:00--> 00:50:12

The only one who is left for you to ask is Allah azza wa jal if you're sincere and you had put the effort first so sincerity, and you put the effort and then you go and ask Allah azza wa jal guaranteed allow teaching,

00:50:14--> 00:50:33

guarantee, Allah Zota will teach you but with these conditions, because if there are people around you to teach you, you cannot just bypass them and say Allah, they are there to teach you to tell you what you don't know. But there is no one and you are sincere and you really ask Allah has legit Allah will definitely guide you. Right and that's Rama of Allah surgeon.

00:50:35--> 00:50:40

And let me see this is close to the end insha Allah. Then he says,

00:50:42--> 00:51:23

Here, he repeats some of what he said in the beginning, he knows that he says know that this dunya that this is the commerce a land of commerce where you do business and you are either going to gain the favor of Allah subhana wa tada and his mercy or you're gonna lose it. And this is the arena or the racetrack where you are racing with others to reach the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada and the farm land where you are planting, to harvest on the Day of Judgment. And either you can harvest something beautiful that will take you to Jenna or you're going to discover your loss. So he says rush to the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And take advantage of every breath that you have every

00:51:23--> 00:52:09

second every hour, because every one of them is something that you can when you paradise and shed tears, shed tears on what you have lost on the sins that you have done, and the opportunities that you have missed. And wake up in the morning. In the last hours of the night when Allah subhanho wa Taala in his greatness and majesty, he descends. And he asks, Hellman set it in for all three. Is there anyone who has a request so I can grant him his request? has been there in first ajibola? Is there anyone who is supplicating and asking how to do it so I can grant him is? Is there anyone who's asking for forgiveness? So I can forgive him? And then you say yeah, Allah. Yes, it is me I am

00:52:09--> 00:52:57

here. I'm the one who is weak and helpless. I am the one who is in need of you. I'm the one who supplicating and is asking you and the one who is sinful and is requesting forgiveness for his sin. I confess my sins so Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive me, yeah, Allah, forgive my weakness, forgive my if you're older, forgive my old age, forgive my needs, and or take care of my need. And forgive me all of my sins era by Allah mean and speak to Allah subhana wa tada you Allah, your your mercy is abundant. Your bounties are abundant, and I am in need of them. So give me a lot of alanine. Because if no one gives me if you don't give me No one will give me He says, and this is also beautiful,

00:52:57--> 00:53:45

giving hope. He Allah, he did not command me to ask you, but that you wanted to grant me? Why did you ask me to ask you, because you wanted to give me a lot you did not guide me or lead me to you, except because you wanted to guide me. You didn't wake me up at night or bring me to the masjid or guide me to this job except because you want it to accept that from me Allah xojo Otherwise, why did you guide me to it? And he did not ask me or command me to make except because you wanted to answer my job. So I asked you, from your break bound me to make me Of those, whom do you have blessed from among the prophets and the Sidious and martyrs and that righteous and pious among those whom you

00:53:45--> 00:53:54

love and those who love you. And then he gives going on and on insha Allah and then it's just a private conversation that he's having with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:53:56--> 00:53:58

I think I will just go to the end of this.

00:54:00--> 00:54:30

He says that this is the end of it. He says, as someone said, Yeah, Allah you know that despite my sin, my transgression and all of my disobedience, I did not attribute a suntan, I did not attribute an equal to you. I did not attribute anyone who could oppose you and worship them in that. So yeah, Allah if you punish me, you punish me with your justice. But if you are merciful with me, you are the most powerful and the most wise. Okay, and he concludes it with that.

00:54:32--> 00:54:59

And it's beautiful. So panelizer is done, that it's beautiful, and a lot to talk to Allah subhana wa Taala because as I said, there's no one to talk to you to talk to better than Allah subhana wa Tada. And what you get from it is far more than what you get from talking to any other human if you've talked to some to any other human and you find after you talk to them that you're happy, or you feel smarter because of it or because more informed because of it, etc, etc, all these positive things. It's a lot

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

More when you talk to Allah subhanho wa Taala and the peace that you feel, you just have to do it, and keep doing it and the peace that you feel is unparalleled, and and comparable to anything else, any other feeling that you will have.

00:55:13--> 00:55:18

So let's see, inshallah, if you have any questions, I'm thinking in sha Allah that

00:55:19--> 00:55:49

after we since we finished in sha Allah, we will go back to the other side of he will do some of that. But while we're doing this in Sha, Allah, I'll take your suggestions about what do you want to do next so that we can do some of the other solid heyne then pause, do something short then come back to real the solid Hey, this keeps us in Sharla interested and engaged, she can let me know if you have ideas about what you want to learn about what you want to explore, hear about inshallah, that would be wonderful in Sharma I saw a handle in our lives.

00:56:00--> 00:56:01

Yes.

00:56:14--> 00:56:44

Good questions I have. So he's asking about the question of the three men who are trapped in the cave and that they asked Allah azza wa jal by your good deed, does that mean that the reward of that good deed diminishes or goes away? Because he asked a lot zildjian for it in the dunya? No, it doesn't mean that. Because if something that you have done and haven't done enough for the sake of Allah has the origin, but you're only asking Allah as he has favored you to also favor you again. So this is what you're asking Allah as if it was so notice insha Allah it stays complete for you.

00:56:54--> 00:56:54

Okay.

00:56:57--> 00:57:22

Is that a lot? Yeah, that's a very good question. So some people use the Hadeeth of the line man, to mean or to refer to asking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam directly. So while we said that, asking Allah through Prophet Mohammed, you're asking Allah by Prophet Mohammed, there's disagreement in it. There shouldn't be any disagreement in the fact that asking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is should

00:57:24--> 00:57:31

because that is what if you ask anyone for things like that Yanni Forgive me, Grant me heal me. What is that called?

00:57:32--> 00:58:12

Do I undo is what a better and a better to other than Allah is what should you follow? Easy right? inshallah you said it nominee I was only asking questions. I always only so if no one's gonna blame the audience here. So it's due. And you asking other than Allah soldiers who you are dedicating a better to other than Allah zildjian. So whether you say oh no, the prophet does not have power but has power. How is this different than the people who had idols? And they were asking the idols because they were asking some of them didn't believe in Mr. Yanina manabu Cardona Eliza refer they say because they brought us closer to Allah. So you cannot ask any other human or any other beings

00:58:12--> 00:58:42

other than Allah zildjian so it's haram to ask the prophets a lot isn't the Prophet you know, is a special is a human does not have any power. So that tapanuli you know, compromises to heat. So directly, so that's why it's also it's a good idea also, not to ask or use the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in your requests, but rather say, which is beautiful, actually, to me is more beautiful. Rather than say, I asked you by Mohammed, is it a more beautiful to see I asked you by love by my love of Mohammed?

00:58:43--> 00:58:51

I asked you by my love of Mohammed, I asked you by my following as soon as it was in them. That's that's a better job to ask.

00:58:57--> 00:59:11

You mentioned about talking to people or talking to your colleagues, is it extreme to say that to not talk to people if it's like a personal feelings and things not talk to people ever and only me

00:59:12--> 00:59:13

personally, okay.

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

Okay.

00:59:19--> 00:59:27

So, also a good question, you know, because some people may take that to mean that I cannot talk to any human about another problem that I have complained to them about it.

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

So, I mean, the question of the broker is that should i is it extreme to say never complained to any human and only complaint to Allah azza wa jal is that extreme or there is there a middle path you were saying?

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

What is the closest thing inshallah so no.

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

When you look at this, and you look at the actions of the setup, if you don't sense from it, and you don't see from it that it is haram or prohibited or even disliked in the sense to complain. Okay, so

01:00:00--> 01:00:34

If you're sharing your problem with the intent of seeking advice, especially if that is best the intent, if you're complaining about Allah, oh, you should stop meaning your sickness and you're just simply complaining about what you're sick. And this and that or complaining about why it's called and Barwood, it's hot and this and that. So it's a complaint about a loss actions, then you should review that complaint and not do it. If it's just informing another that it's a hot day, or it's a cold day, or that you're sick, or you're sharing these things because you want

01:00:36--> 01:01:02

comfort from them advice from them support from them in Sha lights fine. So what is veteran depends on the person. What is better, so you cannot prescribe this for one person, what is better depends on the person. If a person is strong enough that he thinks, you know, I can't complain, I don't have to complain to anybody about it, that's fine, but don't break. Because sometimes we take that on, and we break it because of it. We just carry so much pain and we don't know what to do with it. Not not required.

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

Okay, so connected to the roadmap Adama insha Allah so it's an obligation in sha Allah. To write you will write you will see a different type of overseer than this, that we will see that you leave to your family about what happens to your property, what happens to your kids, what happens with everything, so it's important and it's an obligation and a person does not sleep at night does not put his bed on his pillow, unless he has and will see written and probably inshallah validated notarized so that it's also legal simple and because it's just you write it down, it may not carry much weight notarized in a way that a person can come and say yes, his kids her kids go here his

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

property is divided this way so that you don't lose a property and can be compensated but children so it's important very important

01:02:10--> 01:02:11

to write your CV

01:02:30--> 01:02:37

so how do you know if your people if you have despair, whether the sources your sense, or this somewhere else?

01:02:38--> 01:03:19

I'm thinking a lot of you just ask yourself, what is the thing that is generating that despair in you? Is it that observing your sins and feeling hopeless? Because I've been? Or is it personal flocka sometimes it's not sins, but we look at our personal flaws or failures. And that causes despair. So it's not sometimes since maybe sins are connected to it implicitly in ways that we haven't noticed. We just know the source just consciously what is the source? Why why what's making me feel this way? That's probably the thing that is causing despair. But the treatment in sha Allah is almost the same because going back to a Laszlo gel, you know, chases away both of these feelings.

01:03:21--> 01:03:21

Yeah.

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

Yeah.

01:03:31--> 01:03:42

So a phase where they cannot make proper drop. What what's causing that feeling or that face? I've seen people say like, you know, like, they are not able to focus and concentrate.

01:03:45--> 01:03:48

And that is something that they don't know where they're

01:03:49--> 01:03:54

at and they make like proper salad, everything but they still are not able to make too often.

01:03:55--> 01:03:59

So what is the best way to overcome that?

01:04:00--> 01:04:07

So if they can't concentrate when you're making dua, inshallah So two things come to mind. First of all,

01:04:08--> 01:04:09

we shouldn't make

01:04:10--> 01:04:13

so complicated as most

01:04:14--> 01:04:40

it says it's as if it's a high bar that we need to rise or reach. That is too difficult to reach unless I'm pure unless I'm sitting here unless I'm conscious of everything that I'm saying that I cannot make do out so I'm afraid that one part of that could be that I made too difficult for myself by demanding too much for myself when making to draw it could be very, very simple. You don't need the hora you don't need to be facing the Fiddler

01:04:42--> 01:04:59

it doesn't need to be after so that you could be while you're driving, you can say you can directly talk to Allah azza wa jal that counts as Doa. So, don't create obstacles or distances between you and your hub. I think it's perfection either do is perfect in this particular manner, or it's not at all

01:05:00--> 01:05:39

That's one thing. The other thing it's a possibility of not even to be able to concentrate into is sin. that the person is distant far from Allah has his origin and so they cannot concentrate. So that way to come back is his default. asking Allah for forgiveness, continuous keeping doing it, doing it doing it 100 times 200 times 300 times everyday everyday everyday insha Allah and staying away from the sink, your heart will start living being a living heart again comes easy, will become easy to shovel so it needs some work. So there's distance and sha Allah just bridge that distance by default and leaving that scene whatever scene you're doing, leaving that

01:05:47--> 01:05:50

while raising your hand or

01:05:51--> 01:06:21

Institute or raising your hand as to do it is the better position to do it is the closest yeah that's the best position where you're at where you're closest to Allah subhana wa to Allah but also note that the prophets a lot of cinnamon made that he made it that way and he made it also when he was raising his hand and asking the last panel with that so sometimes you find yourself in salon and sometimes you find yourself outside of the salon so again you know don't put restrictions as I was telling him It needs to be then and only then

01:06:22--> 01:06:29

because that again becomes you know tricks that we put on ourselves or restrictions or tricks with the shades are no no wait till you're in salon

01:06:30--> 01:06:40

becomes a habit you don't make God now with deliverance Allah no no make drought now also repeated in Salah. Both are good inshallah. So whenever position you find yourself in make dry yeah.

01:06:42--> 01:06:46

Oh yeah why not? I can see your last

01:06:48--> 01:06:48

answer

01:07:11--> 01:07:50

insha Allah here so is saying I squashed in about this collective that is being made after Juma continuously regularly after Juma and regularly sometimes after each Salah right after each cell after each combination of Jamal Salah now the answer to what insha Allah simply and I know this amount answer if you go to some messages will upset them is a simply see that the prophet SAW you send them do it or not it's a simple thing it's a simple thing it's not complicated and show did he do it like you find a singer in it and eration where he after each Juma after the Salah used to do that or after each Salah used to do that not gonna find

01:07:51--> 01:08:13

so when we say the best guidance is the guidance of Mohammed Salah law he was and then we have to mean it in sha Allah and I know we mean it but sometimes we just don't notice what we're doing. So the best guidance is his guidance. We cannot do anything better than when he did some audio seven so if you say okay what about if I want to make the non news draft he says Pamela what stands between you and learning

01:08:14--> 01:08:43

what stands between learning the dial of the prophet SAW you send them if you need to make the after the center Raise your hands and make dua to Allah has ever done. So but for it to be in congregation that's not the suit. And there's wisdom in it for not for it not being a congregation or collective. There's wisdom in it. Because the time for Salah is a time for all of us we're all of us are praying to Allah azza wa jal at the same time. Once this law is done, this is your time. Your time for is defer your time for Think of your time for

01:08:44--> 01:08:55

as if you know, after Salah we pray the sooner collectively know it's your time to pray. So we've done the collective bar after it. It's time for the people Michelle individually.

01:08:59--> 01:09:02

It has to be last last question, because I think we're close.

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

Like you.

01:09:12--> 01:09:26

Also very good question. So Kevin has some very good questions tonight. Okay, so what is what's? What's the advice if you're making to ask so often that it becomes robotic, repetitive, you're not paying attention to it, it's just repeating it.

01:09:27--> 01:09:33

The solution to it insha Allah wants one solution, one solution to it is switch the door and change to another door.

01:09:34--> 01:09:59

Right change to another type of job. And then you will be more aware of what you're saying because it's different. And when you get used to that move to that first job, or there's a third job, and then when you get used to the third die the fourth door and keep rotating, rotating. That keeps you energized and interested in Shell and that's, by the way, that's the way also to do it inside out. If there's a way into shadow that you got so used to it and the way you have to do it.

01:10:00--> 01:10:09

For you read this is stuff that you got so used to it, you just change it. And you because it's new, maybe aware of what you're seeing. So this is one way.

01:10:11--> 01:10:23

Another way is to ask a lot even in your job to make you aware of your job because then that is accepted is that that you're aware of? So ask Allah has voted for it. Maybe inshallah will help.

01:10:24--> 01:10:26

Yeah, you have anything from the system?

01:10:28--> 01:10:58

If you raise your hand, do you have to stand? Yes, no, no, you don't have to raise if you're raising your hand you know, to make the art you don't have to step down and show us easy right? You don't even have to raise your hands. It's as soon now but you don't even have to raise your hands right. So I want to make it as simple as possible. But Raise your hands but if you are raising your hands it can be sitting lying down standing whatever position you want to be. So inshallah, let me Is there another question? Okay. Is that yeah

01:11:10--> 01:11:28

and Heidi now we'll see anyway, so how do you know profits are listen them there is no you don't write a portion of your will to a person who's going to inherit meaning your children either of your parents are going to inherit something from you their portion is already assigned by Allah has no agenda you don't write something for them.

01:11:29--> 01:12:12

This is what it means. Thank you, Daddy. Yeah, can show if not asked me. Later I'll explain. I don't want to delay people if they want to creation so we'll move on from the cluster of others that we asked me all but adhamiya Moroccan lineage from Yamaha forgive us all our sins er but I mean, the sins that we know about and the sins that we do not know about your life, we are going through any hardship or our families or anyone that we know asked me a lot to remove it and to remove it completely. and replace it with easy as well as we have a lot to witness closer to you. And fill our hearts with your love. Your lawmakers of your family are the ones who love you and you love backyard

01:12:12--> 01:12:26

ham I mean, make us of those who fill your lives with your obedience make us of those who draw closer to your about anime Yama make obeying you easy for us and make disobedient disobeying you very hard for us.

01:12:27--> 01:12:41

Yellow asked you that you'd be merciful with us. We ask you that you guide us to the truth and that you protect us from falsehood and misguided see our hammer I mean was your butt I mean that you protect an honor and send your mercy upon the moment

01:12:43--> 01:13:00

that you would guide them to the truth and that you would erase and take away any division between them. And that would take them back to the haoran and the synovia profits A lot of us in the Allah we asked you for the highest ranks and have inhabited and we seek your protection from Hellfire but I mean yahama

01:13:02--> 01:13:03

you will be automatic industry.
