verse Allah azza wa jal

00:00:26--> 00:00:37

to teach us what is beneficial and to bring us great benefit with what we learn and to make our intentions sound for his sake subhanho wa Taala

00:00:39--> 00:00:44

did it in sha Allah, we're going to be doing slight last week

00:00:45--> 00:01:27

to Hadith will do Hadith 29 and Hadith 30 In sha Allah to Allah and as we reminded you last week, it doesn't mean that we've done two Hadith of the same time that you need to do to Hadith at the same time if you're listening to this lecture or podcasts later, because you could split them but here for the benefit of everybody who is attending sha Allah because everybody has come here to make use of the time we're doing to Hadith speak Nila zodat because but you could definitely split them. You do Hadith per week so Hadith 29 You finish it apply it practice it then you had to Hadith 30 In sha Allah Allah

00:01:28--> 00:01:31

so Hadith 29

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

is

00:01:35--> 00:01:39

where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked a question

00:01:41--> 00:01:51

and without her is the one who's asking him and he said yeah Rasul Allah He or Atia radula Yama, Lulu Mala, your hip boohoo and Nasser Ali.

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

He said O Messenger of Allah.

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

What if a man does something

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

and for that people like him love him.

00:02:02--> 00:02:06

He does something and he receives people love because of it.

00:02:08--> 00:02:12

So he said Ali Salatu was Salam. He said Tilka hygiene Aubuchon movement.

00:02:13--> 00:02:16

This is the hastened good news for the believer.

00:02:18--> 00:03:04

This is the Heysen good news for the believer. You may have heard this hadith another narration that narration is that messenger of Allah, what if somebody does something good and he receives people's praise? So this wording is for from Ahmed Rahim Allah in the moose nut. The wording of the other popular wording is what if somebody does something and he receives people's praise for it. And then the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, this is the Heysen good news for the believer. So it's good news. In form of in terms of praise, praise, love, love, praise, they are equivalent here. So whether we receive it is receiving praise, he's receiving praise because people love him because of

00:03:04--> 00:03:16

what he has done. So that becomes for that Sahabi an issue or a bit of a problem or perplexing in the sense of, you've done it for Allah azza wa jal, what do you do when people praise you?

00:03:17--> 00:03:29

So let's insha Allah understand this hadith and through it understand a little bit more about love and the things that we were saying about love. So love is something that we all need.

00:03:30--> 00:03:33

And is not possible for us to live without.

00:03:34--> 00:03:42

So you see it, you know, love recognition, praise, all of these, I'm going to say use for the same for the sake of this hadith as synonyms.

00:03:43--> 00:04:28

As interchangeable words, praise, love recognition, all of these things. We all need them. And you can see it because it's so inborn in us. In US, you can see it with children. I mean, a child will do something and look at his parents for what approval, is this right? Is this wrong? Are you happy with me. And if they express approval, then the child knows that he is approved, he is celebrated, he's fine, what he has done is fine. So that makes him happy. And the child will continue to do this to look at the approval of his parents, his mother, his father, people around him to understand right from wrong, what needs to be done and not but also understand things about himself, or I am a

00:04:28--> 00:04:46

good person or I'm a bad person, I've done good or I've done bad. So that's also how you reform behavior. So the child within him within her early on, they need that love. And they need that praise, right? And what happens to them if you take that love and praise from them, they grow in an imbalanced way.

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

Right? They grow lacking love seeking it either in the wrong place. Or because they like it, they're unable to process it and unable to give it there's an imbalance in the

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

In the person, so we're always are seeking love, love as children but love as teenagers love even as adults through what we do.

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

And

00:05:13--> 00:05:16

there's a problem here with human love.

00:05:18--> 00:05:29

There's a disadvantage, there's a shortcoming with it, that comes with it, because we are imperfect. The love that we give also has that part a mark of that imperfection.

00:05:30--> 00:06:10

And of course, I'm saying this because we're going to contrast this with divine love and say Divine Love is complete. But in order to understand the difference, look at human love, what it can give you an A can give you a lot, but at the same time, there are things that it cannot give you things that you cannot expect from it. So for instance, you may love a lot of people, but they may not be ready to love you back. Right, they may not be ready to return that love. And that's evident that's noticeable. So not everyone who whom you love loves you back or if you love them in this in in a certain amount of love or a certain degree they will loving the same degree back. So that's a flaw

00:06:10--> 00:06:38

in human love. Also, they may love you, but they don't know how to express it or they express it in the wrong way. So because they love you they seek let's say for instance, to dominate you, they seek for instance, to restrict you because they think this is what love is. So not all expressions of love is or are good, or are approved or are to your advantage. Sometimes the love is there, but it's excessive.

00:06:40--> 00:06:53

And if there is too much of it what happens? it backfires, right? Or there's not enough of it. So they love you but not enough or they love you but they love you way too much. And if a person loves way too much, they could be jealous, they could be possessive.

00:06:54--> 00:07:23

We're going somewhere with this Insha Allah, it also it also could be misapplied. It can also be could be tainted with human emotions and insecurities. So I love you so much. I'm afraid of losing you. No one else can have access to you. There is love, right? But it also what it's mixed with some negative insecurities that a person may have. So it's not all expressions of love, or where what it reads human wise, is,

00:07:25--> 00:07:30

is good. And finally, human love is unstable. And that's something that we can

00:07:31--> 00:08:12

visit. But a person that you love today, you may not love tomorrow, or vice versa. A person who loves you today may not love you tomorrow, not for any good reason. But they just simply change. Emotions change the very based on the person circumstances. What I've gone through all of that is a possibility. So that's human love. And that's the flow with human love that we are all seeking. And we need where we can shall try to point all of us to something that is higher. Also something interesting about love that we got, we understand. And we talked about this before, that love can be good. And it can be what

00:08:13--> 00:08:14

can be bad.

00:08:15--> 00:08:42

Love can unleash the greatest potential in us. And that's what we said the love of Allah xojo is the greatest motivation, but also for the sake of love, you could commit the worst of crimes. Right? So you can kill because of love, right? You can kill because of love, you could steal because of love. You could commit terrible crimes because of it. And you can do noble things because of it. It just depends on how you

00:08:43--> 00:09:05

attach this love to what are you attaching it to. So there is a human need. Because love on its own is not pure love on its own, he is human. And it could be good or bad. So we need to liberate that love from its bad element connotations connections and that can only happen when you

00:09:06--> 00:09:08

link this left to Allah azza wa jal.

00:09:10--> 00:09:14

So we're still talking about kind of recognition, connection and praise.

00:09:15--> 00:09:49

If you're only seeking human praise, you're going to be troubled by it and miserable because of it. But we can live without freeze, right? If you're only seeking human recognition is going to trouble you and devastate you. But we can't live without recognition. So we need it on a human level. But we can't stop there. So how do I liberate myself from that dependence? How do I will liberate my love right from its imperfection? You link it to Allah azza wa jal, and then your love can't be free.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

Free from dependence on humans only and free from your own fluctuations. So I can love for Allah as origin and that love can be constant judged by

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

I am motivated by Allah as though did not my personal gains and losses. This is how you liberate love. And if that love of yours is gonna push you in the wrong direction you have Allah azza wa jal to tell you, No, this is haram and this is haram and this is not allowed. So you know that you've crossed a line. This is by type of love. So you know, that you need to retract you need to combat and you need to re understand that love, you need to apply that love correctly. And that can only happen if Allah azza wa jal is guiding that love.

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

Now what this hadith does

00:10:39--> 00:10:42

is that it links human love to Divine Love,

00:10:43--> 00:10:55

human praise to divine approval, because the Sahaba is asking Oh prophet of Allah, if I'm being praised, or if people love me, because with the things that I'm doing, what do I do with this?

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

And that is here, the

00:11:00--> 00:11:47

the dilemma of effortless sincerity, right? So you're doing something and you're trying your best to be sincere, you're praying, you're fasting, you're reading the Quran, you're donating, you're doing any or all of these things and some more Dawa, etc, you're speaking publicly you're writing and you're trying your best for this to be sincere for Allah sake. Then people take note of it, then people naturally will praise it will assess it. So if I'm receiving their phrase, and I become dependent on their phrase, will that not sway my floss? Take it away from Allah xojo to expectations, to human right liking what I'm doing and because they like it, because they praise me,

00:11:47--> 00:12:10

I will continue to do it versus Allah azza wa jal. That's the dilemma. How do I process all of this? So the prophets Allah, Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam is saying, in this hadith, no. Link and see their love as a product of Allah's love their praise as a product of Allah's approval. Because

00:12:11--> 00:12:19

in everything that we're doing, and if you think about it, we're always doing something seeking recognition, and love and praise.

00:12:20--> 00:12:27

If no one recognizes what you're doing, you're probably won't do it. Right? Like no one at all.

00:12:28--> 00:12:30

You probably wouldn't do it.

00:12:31--> 00:12:52

So the prophets allottee was salam in here in general, in Islam, you transition through the that understanding, from human recognition to divine recognition, from human praise to divine praise from human love, to divine love. Not that you need none of these things, element human elements, but that you're not dependent on them.

00:12:54--> 00:13:01

As I said, everything that you do, you're looking for recognition. Imagine if you think that you're funny, you tell a joke, and no one laughs

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

would you tell jokes after that?

00:13:05--> 00:13:22

You need somebody to tell you what you're funny, then you will know you're funny. That's the only way that you know, you're funny. If somebody laughs If you keep telling jokes, and nobody laughs What happens? You know that you're not funny. Right? Like, how do you know that you're smart?

00:13:24--> 00:13:25

Somebody has to tell you, right?

00:13:27--> 00:13:50

Because everybody on their own, they believe that they are smart, right? But how do I know? Someone has to come and tell you, by the way you really intelligent, you're really smart, you'll be able to solve this, you know this, then you will know it's that recognition that lets you know that you are something and if no one recognizes you. Right? Then you will not know yourself. So you need that reflection to come your way.

00:13:51--> 00:13:53

What if you do something and no one likes it?

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

What is that?

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

What do you do that again?

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

Typically when we do it.

00:14:02--> 00:14:43

So as human beings, we're always looking for that feedback. And sometimes you look you can look for it in the right place, and sometimes in the wrong place. So if you're looking for that feedback among family who are wise among friends who are wise, who could be trusted, then you know what is right and what is wrong. But you could look for it in all the wrong places. If you have wrong friends, Bad Company, then what they're going to motivate all the wrong beliefs and practices. So they'll push you in the wrong direction. What makes social media popular, especially when you post is that you receive what all of these things that we talked about, you receive recognition. So the

00:14:43--> 00:15:00

more clicks the more likes, the more views. What does that mean? I am something unpopular, and important. I'm intelligent. I know how to produce content. And if they hit like, it means what? Oh my dress, the way that I'm dressing today, the way that I'm

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

speaking what I said, this is valuable, you recognize value through people's reaction, but that's looking for approval in the wrong place. Right? Anonymous, unknown. People are judging you and directing you to do an Undo.

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

Well, on the one hand

00:15:24--> 00:15:31

this is expected, because this is what we're looking for. On the other hand, as we said, this is miserable.

00:15:32--> 00:15:36

Because your primary goal then would be I need to please people.

00:15:37--> 00:16:00

I need to find a faction among them. I need to have them love me and like me. And one great pitfall of that is on page 308. There's a Hadith from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam where he said, multi emissaries, Allah bestow haughtiness are of the Allahu Anhu of the Anhu nurse, Camila tema, sorry, the nurse CVSA Tila

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

sakit, Allahu Allah, he was Hopper Allah He nurse. He says the one who seeks Allah's approval, though it is upsetting to people, Allah will be pleased with him, and will have people or make people be pleased with him.

00:16:17--> 00:16:25

And the one who seeks people's approval though it is upsetting to Allah, Allah who will be upset with him, and he will make people upset with him.

00:16:26--> 00:16:32

So if I'm seeking, seeking primarily I've trained myself and that's the only thing I worry about people's approval.

00:16:34--> 00:16:40

It will come a time when that approval must clash with what Allah loves.

00:16:41--> 00:16:43

have you faced that in your life?

00:16:44--> 00:16:50

Must have people want me to do this. Allah wants me to do something else. What do you follow?

00:16:52--> 00:16:56

Now it's easier to say, I'll follow what people want.

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

And why is that?

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

Because their reward is immediate.

00:17:03--> 00:17:21

Right? Because they will if they like you, they will show it immediately. If they want to praise you, they'll show you immediately. If Allah Who likes you, if he wants to praise you. Okay, I've done something I've just prayed. Okay, where's the where's the praise? Where's the recognition? Have you seen anything yet?

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

You haven't.

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

So it's delayed or hidden.

00:17:26--> 00:17:49

So it's far more difficult to please Allah xojo versus pleasing people. But here, the prophets a lot he was Sydenham gives you something that should kind of cheer you up and terrify you at the same time. Because what he's saying is what the thing that you're worrying about is gonna happen. What is it? I'm afraid that people will hate me, isn't it? So no, it's gonna happen.

00:17:50--> 00:18:10

So if you please Allah is a okay. What do I gain if I please Allah is if we Please Allah, and you upset people when there is no other choice but to upset people. And you upset people? Don't worry about it. Allah will be happy with you. And then if you see isn't what about people, he says he will make them happy with you. Even if after some time.

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

Right? So you're not going to lose their approval. They're not going to lose their love. If they matter.

00:18:19--> 00:18:23

If they matter that there will be disbelievers who will hate you no matter what you do, right?

00:18:24--> 00:18:26

If they matter they will love you.

00:18:27--> 00:18:48

When he said Alia salatu salam also that but if you please them and you upset Allah azza wa jal What did you gain now? I thought I gained their approval and their love is saying No, Allah up there is not happy with you. And if he's not happy with you, you wait until they also will be unhappy with you see, you lost everything.

00:18:50--> 00:18:56

And this highlights also that as we said, people's love is fickle. It doesn't stay

00:18:57--> 00:19:03

doesn't stay. You have it you lose it you don't understand why they started to hate you, but they hate you.

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

And we do this as human beings with celebrities.

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

You build them you build them up media or people or whatever you build them up, build them up, build them up and there and when they reach the height of their fame, what did they start doing to them?

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

tear them apart?

00:19:23--> 00:20:00

Right so why why did they do nothing? He's still basically the same person. But now you have too much money now you have too much fun now you know, you're marrying now you're doing this doing that we just don't like you for whatever reason. And maybe there's there are reasons hidden reasons that we do not know, but built up, tear apart, built up tear apart. Nobody's safe. Nobody's safe. And now that person that we loved so much. We hate some we low so much. We want to see them fall apart without sympathy without mercy. So if you think that because you're famous you're people

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

Like you really like you. You have to think again if you think that with fame, you're buying people's love, you have to think again people cannot be trusted as people to love you.

00:20:11--> 00:20:14

You can only trust Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:20:15--> 00:20:16

So,

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

you have to understand,

00:20:22--> 00:20:29

if you are working for Allah azza wa jal doing things for Allah azza wa jal when someone praises you

00:20:30--> 00:20:35

don't disconnect that phrase from Allah and start working for people.

00:20:36--> 00:21:19

So, think of anything Islamic that you might be doing. You recite the Quran and your recitation is beautiful, or you're memorizing the Quran and you're on when maybe to finish the Quran or take any other example that personally relate to you. And you're doing it for Allah azza wa jal. And people start giving your heaping praise on you and you start finding comfort in that phrase, expecting that phrase, waiting for that phrase. And when they praise you, you move and when not you don't move. You don't do. You're lazy. If you don't receive phrase, then you realize, oh, my intention is different now. I was for Allah before, but now somehow I was diverted? No, you want to take that phrase and

00:21:19--> 00:21:25

connect it and link it back to Allah azza wa jal as the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam said,

00:21:26--> 00:21:55

you need recognition, you need praise. How is the divine going to communicate with you? How was ALLAH is going to communicate with you? He's not going to talk to you. Right? How is he going to communicate with you? He says, Consider then this phrase that is being sent to you, as a message from Allah azza wa jal that he is happy with you, as long as what you're doing is right, of course, we'll talk some about some of these qualifications. But consider it link it back to Allah as origin.

00:21:56--> 00:22:14

And then your heart is not attached to a person, not reliant on the person but rather an Allah as a surgeon. So now you're not afraid what if I upset that person and he stops loving me or he's not loving me because of him? He's loving me because of Allah. Make Allah happy, then don't worry about this person.

00:22:15--> 00:22:34

You see. So you put it in context, don't worry about the person. So now I have to keep pleasing Him or doing things that he likes or she likes. Don't worry about the person worry about but the one who sent that person to praise you to tell you what you've done is right, keep going.

00:22:35--> 00:22:40

Or that he loves you. So maybe this is a sign as the Hadith says of Allah's love

00:22:41--> 00:23:09

hasent good news. Before you meet Allah azza wa jal you receive it in the dunya. So on page 308, you see an example of link between what people admire what people love and the love of Allah azza wa jal. So hydropower we saw that he said that, and this is narrated in Muslim he said, When we were in third alpha, and this is the season of Hajj, and Omar Abdulaziz was an immediate Khalifa

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

or became an Omega Khalifa. Well, while in most him he was leading that season of Hajj. So when he passed by people stood up to look at him to get a glimpse of Omar

00:23:22--> 00:23:38

Abdulaziz. So he said, so he'd want to be salah. He said, I said to my father, when I say this, he said, Father, I believe that Allah loves Omar. I believe that Allah loves Omar, he says, How do you know that? He says because I see that people love him.

00:23:40--> 00:23:53

So I believe that Allah loves Omar he says, Why? Because I see people love him. Of course, Omar on his own, in what he does, is worthy of risk of receiving that love. What is he is a pious person.

00:23:54--> 00:24:14

He's a good Halifa he's a good emir, he's a good person. He's worthy of receiving that love. Then he said, When I see people love him, and now they're loving him for the right reasons, then you know that that is a reflection or you suspect that you hope that that's a reflection of Allah's love.

00:24:15--> 00:24:17

Now, I know he said Rahimullah

00:24:20--> 00:24:28

an explanation of a hadith. And this is something important to keep in mind. That's the first qualification that we're going to mention.

00:24:29--> 00:24:47

He says how the Kulu either Hamid the wholeness, this is on page 310. How the Kulu either Hamid, the whole nurse generator, or will they mean who they handle him when he left the room with whom he says this meaning that phrase is a reflection of Allah's approval, a fraction of Allah's love. He says this is all is the case.

00:24:48--> 00:24:54

If he receives people's praise without him seeking it, without him wanting it.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

Otherwise if he seeks it if he exposes himself to be praised

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

If he wants it from them that's not at this is a dislike behavior. That's not an indication anymore of Allah's love.

00:25:08--> 00:25:10

See see the difference between the two.

00:25:11--> 00:25:18

The first is not anticipating is not seeking doesn't want people's praise, but it comes

00:25:20--> 00:25:26

but if a person puts himself in a situation to be praised and people praise Him and He says Masha Allah this is from Allah.

00:25:28--> 00:25:30

Allah loves me because of it. This is no

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

and this is like

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

money

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

and when

00:25:38--> 00:25:41

you will be blessed if you have money and when you want.

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

So hockey boom no Hizam

00:25:45--> 00:26:01

although the Allahu Anhu he said, Sell to Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for Al Thani Thermacell tufa, Thani, Thermacell tufa Thani for makan. So Hakeem. He said, I asked the messenger Alia salatu salam, and he gave me and I asked him for what?

00:26:03--> 00:26:10

money so I asked him, he gave me I asked him he gave me I asked him he gave me and he said in the third

00:26:11--> 00:26:12

He says, Yeah, hacking

00:26:14--> 00:26:20

in the huddle. Marilla huddly Ratan halwa it says this money is beautiful and sweet.

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

Money is what?

00:26:24--> 00:26:33

How the raw green green means beautiful. To look at all types of money beautiful to look at. Her Lulu sweet.

00:26:35--> 00:26:56

So beautiful to look at. And also when you consume it, there's a sweetness to it. So he's saying it's very attractive. So if money is very attractive, for men, other hobbies are Howard enough symbolical houfy His is whoever takes it with a generous spirit. Then money will be blessed for him.

00:26:57--> 00:27:02

What is a generous spirit? Can you take it without greed and looking forward to it?

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

Halal money

00:27:06--> 00:27:45

but you take it without greed. And without depending on it looking forward to it. It says it will be blessed for you. Woman or the hubby Shroff enough Cinder Mubarak Lo Fi, but the one who takes it with greed with anticipation. He will not have it blessed. What can Akella the cooloola Shabbat and he will be like a person who eats but it's never full. We'll yodel Olia, hi Ramona Lia Sophia, and the upper hand is better than the lower hand. And what is the upper hand as the giving hand and the lower hand is the receiving hand? Meaning he is telling Hakeem, what are the Allahu Anhu be the giver, not a taker.

00:27:46--> 00:27:57

So he gave him he gave him and gave him and gave him this advice. And he says, now it's up to you how you want to live the rest of your life, be the giver and not the taker. So don't keep asking.

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

And also when you take money,

00:28:01--> 00:28:13

and that could include what your salary and I salary, any Halal money that we receive. It depends on how you receive that check. If you receive it with greed, you can wait until you get it.

00:28:15--> 00:28:21

And you're panting after Ronnie. He says there'll be no Baraka in it, even though it is what

00:28:22--> 00:28:23

Hello.

00:28:24--> 00:28:27

But the attitude is an attitude of greed,

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

acquisition, right? stinginess, so there will be no Baraka in it, but rather you should take it how be Sahar wittiness with a generous spirit. It's coming

00:28:41--> 00:28:51

from Allah xojo Not from so and so. And it will be used in ways that please Allah azza wa jal Halal ways. But there's no greed.

00:28:53--> 00:29:10

Unite your life is not going to end if you don't have it is going to come your way. I don't have to run after it. That's the attitude is that generous spirit will put Baraka in that wealth. So here with this money, which resembles here that prays with this money, if you seek it, what happens?

00:29:12--> 00:29:32

I'm not saying see seeking it, you can work that seeking money, but I say beyond that, you don't crave it. So if you crave it, you run after it. There's no Baraka in it. But if you sit back and wait for it to come after you've worked, you know, after you've invested in all of this, you sit back and you wait for it to come.

00:29:33--> 00:29:34

Then it will be blessed.

00:29:36--> 00:29:52

So the same thing with praise. Don't seek it, don't wait for it. Don't anticipate it. Do the things that you need to do for Allah sake. Then if it comes your way, you take it and you take it to hell by saying that this is from Allah as well.

00:29:53--> 00:29:55

But also keep in mind

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

just Hadith also connected to it before I moved to this point.

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

Where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about money. Either sock Allahu alayka this condiment lady Miss Ella tiene la Shroff enough sinful Cordova in Allah Allah taka Who is this of Allah sends you provision without you asking for it and without greedily craving it without greedily craving it, then take it because Allah gave it to you.

00:30:23--> 00:31:01

So he this is he said, la salatu salam to Omar, he wants to give Omar money. Is there a prophet of Allah, I don't need it, give it to somebody else. So he told him what it said if someone money comes to you, without you asking for it, and anticipating or anticipating it, take it. This is a provision from Allah as those that had come to you don't resist it. So two things you didn't ask. And he didn't think about it. You didn't anticipate it came to you take it that's the direction of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam because it came to you, without any effort. Without any craving you say ticket.

00:31:03--> 00:31:08

Now the qualification to the praise that we talked about is not all praise or love is good.

00:31:09--> 00:31:10

So you see, okay, if

00:31:11--> 00:31:15

if people praise people does not mean that Allah loves them, no matter what they're doing.

00:31:16--> 00:31:50

If people love other people, because of what they're doing, does that mean divine love, no matter what they're doing? No. It means that this person has to be pleasing to Allah righteous, what they're doing has to be righteous. And the person who is expressing that love and they're expressing that phrase have to be righteous in that love righteous them that praise expressing it for the right reasons. Otherwise, celebrities, okay, who are even non Muslim will be the most beloved to Allah zodion Because a lot of people seemingly love them and praise them.

00:31:52--> 00:31:58

A lot of people will be sad when they die, but not sad if one of us dies, does that mean that they are more beloved to Allah?

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

So what are we considering here? What prays in what love who praises and who loves and the status of the priests a person who is being praised and who is being loved? So if they are if there is, let's say, not only we're talking about a

00:32:16--> 00:32:27

non Muslims, right, let's say that there is a Muslim, but they are sinners, public sinners, and they die and a lot of people feel sad that they've passed away. Is that a sign of Allah's love?

00:32:29--> 00:32:45

Yes. Can be if people praise them mashallah, they're this and this this but they are public sinners. Is that a sign of Allah's love? No, because it depends who's giving that phrase? There are Muslims who are innovators, religious, he will get gets trickier now.

00:32:47--> 00:32:51

Religious, but they are innovators. Gupta, DIA.

00:32:52--> 00:33:04

So seemingly to the public, who cannot differentiate between Sunni and Bidda his religious Masha Allah, he's popular, masha Allah dies, the he preys on him. Does that matter?

00:33:06--> 00:33:23

The same way doesn't that's trickier, by the way because seemingly, he's religious. But it matters. And it matters where it comes from, and who's receiving it. Okay, but at least let's understand the premise of all of this not all praise and not all love.

00:33:28--> 00:34:13

Now, so the last point in sha Allah when it comes to, to this particular Hadith, is to remember that we really are motivated by love and we really are motivated by praise and by recognition. So Allah azza wa jal, and His Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And they this is, as we said, absolutely natural. They do want you to move from the human realm, to the divine realm, from seeing what people can give you to sing Allah xojo from motivated, being motivated by oh so and so loves loves me, so I will do whatever. And so and so praises me, I'll do whatever to saying that what about Allah azza wa jal and what about his praise and what about his love? Because that is love that you can trust love

00:34:13--> 00:34:50

that doesn't change, love that will always keep giving you fuel to do more and more and more. And as there is no end to Allah's love, there is no end to the motivation that Allah can give you every single day. You can get more of His love subhanho wa Taala he'll never he'll never grow tired of you who never got tired of giving you and you never go tight, grow tired of loving Allah subhanho wa Taala as long as you are pushing and resisting the shaytaan the obstacles that we fear or obstacles that we put in our way because of the shaytaan but if you want the greatest motivation,

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

right? Love is a great the greatest motivator if you want the greatest motivation in Love It is the love of Allah has right

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

And you can see how praise moves us. You can be so tired, you know, you don't have energy somebody comes and gives you a remark about your figure about your work about this and that and you have energy all of a sudden, and you want to do more of that, right? That's what praise does. And that's what love does. So if you want more of it,

00:35:21--> 00:35:55

if you have something coming from you and being room remember, Allah's praise, and remember, Allah's recognition, and remember, Allah's love and connect to what is on this earth to Allah subhanho wa Taala and say, perhaps this and I hope this is a reflection of what Allah thinks of me, and he wants from me. So that will give you a greater or the greatest motivation. But if you're just simply focused, as a lot of us you know, it happens to a lot of us to the best of us if you're just simply focused on human love or human praise. You will move as long as they give you

00:35:57--> 00:36:10

and you will stop when they stop giving you so Salah Quran a bad hijab Zika whatever it is as long as people like it I'll do it and we have to move beyond that inshallah.

00:36:12--> 00:36:15

Hadith which is the 30th Hadith.

00:36:18--> 00:36:20

In it, the messenger Allah salatu salam.

00:36:22--> 00:36:40

He said this is page 313 He said in them in Eva de la isla una casa Mohan B and BIA Allah shahada Jacobi To whom will MBA or shahada or Yeoman pm or TV McCann him in Allah He to Allah. He says there are servants of Allah, who are not

00:36:41--> 00:37:09

prophets or martyrs. But the prophets and the murderers will admire them on the Day of Judgment because of how close they are to Allah xojo. Who's saying their position? how close they are to Allah azza wa jal, even the prophets of Allah when they see them, and the shahada, the martyrs when they see them, they will admire them. And ELLIPTA here is to wish for what they have something similar to it, without wanting this to

00:37:10--> 00:37:12

wanting them to lose whatever they have.

00:37:14--> 00:37:58

So they said O Messenger of Allah, can you tell us who are they are called home Coleman to have Rooby Roo Hilda he Allegri or ham in a home while I'm whirling Yatta Altona he says they are people who love each other because of Allah azza wa jal big without family ties between them, and without money that they exchange. So they not loving each other because of family ties or because of money. Pull Allah He didn't know who her homeland nor were in the home island knowed it says By Allah, I swear by Allah, their faces are lit they're full of light, and they are sitting or standing on light, like pulpits of light or elevated on light. Layer California either have a nurse What are you

00:37:58--> 00:38:22

as an owner either has been a nice he says they're not afraid. When people are afraid, and they're not sad when people are sad. And then he said, and then he read Alia Salatu was Salam the following Allah in Olia Allah He love when Allah him Allah homea has a known, indeed the holier of Allah, there is no fear for them, and they don't experience sadness.

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

So

00:38:25--> 00:38:33

again, here, this is a, it's related to the recognition that we talked about, because these people on the Day of Judgment, they're being recognized.

00:38:34--> 00:38:57

And you are Allahu Allah and being told all of this, in case you are looking for recognition, and all of us are and you're saying you're anonymous here, I'm doing this and I'm doing this and I'm doing this and no one knows about it. And these people are being recognized for the good and the bad that they're doing. But you feel inside that there is no there's something missing when no one knows about you.

00:38:59--> 00:39:06

And you want someone to know about you. So you're asking if I were to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala with all the things that I'm doing.

00:39:07--> 00:39:27

The good things that I'm trying to do, what do I get? What do I receive? What Allah azza wa jal honor me receive me, praise me recognize me. So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is telling you about that recognition. Because Allah wants to show people then but it also he wants to show us now that this is what you do, or this is what you get if you do what they have done.

00:39:28--> 00:39:49

This is how Allah will reward you, this is how you will be elevated, how you will be celebrated how other people will know about you, when you do these things that Allah want from you. So you can delay that need for recognition. You can imagine that you can visualize it, I'm not going to have it now what but even in the I hope I will have it then. And that's what's gonna look like.

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

So when you have that in your heart, maybe you can be patient. Maybe you will need people around you to tell you are the greatest or to praise you all the time. Because you know and you

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

Mind, there is going to come a time when Allah Zota is going to do this and that to me, when he will elevate me and honor me, when people will realize the good things that I've done. Not that I need them to realize. But I want them to understand the sacrifice. I want them to end system, the pain, I want them to understand these things, there's going to come a time when they'll understand it, everybody will see this. And imagine being in a position where

00:40:26--> 00:41:08

you have the prophets of Allah xojo admiring your status, or think of the prophets, the new Ibrahim Hamad Al amo salatu salam, they look at what you have, and they admire what you have telling you that what you have is great. That's recognition again, okay, from these prophets, that tells us that you can, again, just like with love, that we talked about, you could look for love in the wrong places, and you can look for recognition in the right places. And that's why we do the things that we do good or bad. So if a person joins again, let's say what are the joint doing again, for, for all candidates.

00:41:09--> 00:41:21

And I know for all the fame that they're going to receive, partly, but it's mainly in the beginning, because they feel accepted. They feel recognized, they feel supported.

00:41:23--> 00:41:31

And so you realize that a lot of things that we do that are bad we do because of those social connections and recognitions.

00:41:32--> 00:41:33

So we always need them.

00:41:34--> 00:41:38

And it's good, by the way. And that's something that I didn't put in the book.

00:41:40--> 00:42:20

When we talk about human praise, human praise, human praise, and sometimes human praise is excessive at the same time. It's needed. Because you have to acknowledge people around you, right? When they do something, right. You have to tell them at times to Zachman law, hey Allah, what you've done is good. Because they have to know it's good. And that is a motivator. So yeah, we are saying human praise is not reliable human love is not reliable, but at the same time people around you need to hear that they've done well. They need to hear that phrase from you. And remind them that that could be connected to Allah azza wa jal so that they don't you know, grow drunk on just consuming human

00:42:20--> 00:42:31

praise of only a few phrase me, then I will do, remind them that mean Allah azza wa jal, except that from you, this could be a good news from Allah azza wa jal, because people like what you have done, right?

00:42:32--> 00:42:37

And to also know that at times, you will do things that are unpopular,

00:42:38--> 00:42:41

right, that are pleasing to Allah as origin.

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

And you have to suffer through human rejection, and lack of popularity, right. So if what you're doing is right, just like the Hadith we talked about, if you DO what is pleasing to Allah, even though you can upset people,

00:42:58--> 00:43:03

sometimes you will do things that will get you in trouble with your family, with your friends,

00:43:04--> 00:43:48

with other Muslims, and they are right. And most people are wrong. And if you know that, you're right, you can compromise your position, if you're confident, you can't compromise your position, because people hate what you're doing. You got to do it for Allah sake. And then eventually Allah will bring them back. We'll bring that love that you need from them. But we need to let people know that they've done well when they have done well. So I just wanted to add that, in case we missed thing. So looking for recognition in the right thing, or not the right place in the wrong place. And we know that something's right and something's wrong when people celebrate it, right? Just like the

00:43:48--> 00:43:52

recognition that we talked about. So why do people

00:43:54--> 00:44:22

why do people celebrate fame, or celebrate certain possession professions is because they see other people celebrating it, recognizing it, phrasing it, so they recognize, I need to be this to receive that I needed to receive be this to receive fame or to receive money or to receive love. So whatever we are celebrating becomes success. What if you consider for instance, all of a sudden we all decide that doctors are losers?

00:44:24--> 00:44:35

Would they would anybody want to become doctor? Nobody? So what what changed? Perception, recognition, right? So it's the same thing.

00:44:36--> 00:44:42

The world today is the way that it is because we recognize the wrong things as valuable.

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

Globally, right, collectively, and that's why people seek these wrong things. If we redefine what success is, then the rest of us will seek righteousness because that's what success is. Success today is not

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

praying success today is not honesty. Success today is not Humility is the opposite of these things. And because we are celebrating these opposites, people seek them. If we ourselves, now wait for somebody else to do it we ourselves, we redefine what success is that everybody will be seeking that success. Right?

00:45:23--> 00:45:28

And we understand here from this hadith, right?

00:45:29--> 00:45:36

Because the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He said that they love each other for Allah sake not because of family connections, not because of money.

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

So money is the bond

00:45:40--> 00:45:41

today,

00:45:42--> 00:45:45

and success means competing to get more of it.

00:45:46--> 00:46:14

Yes, success for Allah azza wa jal and success in the eyes of the prophets of Allah azza wa jal is not about competition for money, is that you're not being elevated in the akhirah for it in the dunya. Yes, but in the earth here on Earth, what elevates you loving each other for the sake of Allah Zoda despite the fact that you may not have money, the successful in the eyes of Allah azza wa jal may look like what what people who are poor

00:46:15--> 00:46:28

don't have fancy homes, fancy cars, fancy rights, fancy clothes, brands of this and brands of that they're not recognize they're anonymous. People don't know them, people don't care about them. If Allah azza wa jal deems them to be successful.

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

And these are not the ones that people know about or when they look at, they deemed to be successful. So the prophets Allah was salam, for instance, said in a hadith rubbish Atha Alba, okay, la yo bahala Whoa, la oxen Allah, Allah Hilah. Bara

00:46:45--> 00:47:00

he said la Salatu was Salam, the meaning of that hadith or Baba shatta, aqua, unkempt person with Dusty clothes, dusty body, no one pays attention to him. We're here to swear upon Allah for Allah to do something Allah would fulfill it.

00:47:02--> 00:47:40

And he says muthoot on Bill, Bill Abba, meaning no one opens doors for him. I know how do you know if someone is successful today, he knocks on a door and it opens. Right? And you want in your mind, you want to be that person, you want to be the person who has all these connections, I can pick up the phone and say, Hey, do this, do this for me. And it gets done. That success that's power. The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is saying that's not success. That's wordly connection, but you want to understand success. And now he changes that perception. He says this person that you don't pay attention to, he has the greatest access, because of his Iman.

00:47:41--> 00:47:49

And what is the greatest access, if he asks Allah, and that specific formula, your Allah, I swear upon you that you should do this, he does it for him.

00:47:51--> 00:47:54

Now most people don't have that privilege, right?

00:47:55--> 00:48:07

But he has it. So Allah zoodle redefine success to be what? Success with him, even though in the dunya, you might be a failure, not because of your own fault.

00:48:09--> 00:48:21

People look at you and they consider that you're a failure. It just didn't work out for you. You tried it didn't work out for you. So I'm not preaching that we should fail in the dunya. To succeed in the ACA, you could succeed here and succeed there, right?

00:48:22--> 00:49:01

But I'm saying that you could be in people's perception in many people's perception, you can be a failure in the dunya. What do you have, you don't own your own home, you don't own your own car, you don't travel. You don't have a lot of savings in the bank. You don't have a degree you don't this you try, but it didn't work out for you. But there's something else that you're doing that they don't know about. And that is what the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal, which everybody has access to. You don't need connections, you don't need degrees, you just need effort. And so that is success for Allah azza wa jal, and that is successful. The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So does it matter

00:49:01--> 00:49:11

then if people don't know you, if Allah has the dural do this to you? And the next life in front of everybody, it doesn't matter if people here do not know you, if Allah knows you,

00:49:13--> 00:49:40

right, write that really, because you could go you could be like, you're going on go on social media, and you could post things and he said, How could How come people don't react? Yet they are reacting to so on. So what does that mean? So people don't know me, I must be this must be that I must be lacking in these ways. Whereas those people are not. How can people have are so successful? How come they can get married and have kids and they could travel? They could do all of these things? And I couldn't.

00:49:41--> 00:49:42

So does it matter if you

00:49:44--> 00:49:46

have all these things but don't have Allah?

00:49:47--> 00:49:55

Or don't have any of these things, but you have Allah doesn't really matter. So you have to know what really matters. Because if you have Allah azza wa jal

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

then all of these things are yours.

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

If not in the dunya then when

00:50:03--> 00:50:03

and

00:50:04--> 00:50:09

all of them without exception all of these things including here, fame,

00:50:10--> 00:50:19

not that you should work for fame but if you that can is something that worries you sad in zoo he says, Okay, fine, right?

00:50:20--> 00:50:25

There's going to come a time beating Allah azza wa jal when you will be no.

00:50:26--> 00:50:37

And that's what Allah azza wa jal elevates you but you want to ask yourself, why did they get elevated so high? Like, what did they do? So we know the sacrifice of the prophets of Allah, we know.

00:50:38--> 00:50:47

Okay, and we know the sacrifice of the martyrs as shahada, they lost their lives we know. So what is the sacrifice of these people?

00:50:48--> 00:51:07

They love each other for the sake of Allah xojo exclusively, not for the sake of kinship, and not for the sake of money. And they continue to do this throughout their lives until they die. Which means that this requires a lot of sacrifice, to be upon the straight half.

00:51:09--> 00:51:21

That pleases Allah as Odin and not be tempted. Not to go right and not to go left. And to keep doing things for Allah sake, day in and day out, day in and day out year after year. Is that easy?

00:51:23--> 00:51:25

Is it? No.

00:51:26--> 00:51:28

But when you keep doing it,

00:51:29--> 00:52:11

you're gonna be swimming against the tide against the current opposite everybody else. And you're going to be called names. And people will think that you're stupid, unwise, foolish. Right? You've missing opportunities. And these opportunities could be a lot of haram in them, but how come you're staying? Far? And you're not taken advantage of A, B and C? How come everybody's moving ahead and you're you're yet you are in the same place? How come? How come and how come? How come people love for this? Some love for that? And you love for Allah azza wa jal, right? So how can you spend all that time in the masjid? How come? You're wearing hijab? How come you're concealing your beauty? Let

00:52:11--> 00:52:23

everybody see how beautiful you are you still young? Right? How come you're not as successful? All these questions that will come to you and try to tempt you. Okay. But then if you

00:52:24--> 00:52:42

resist all of this, and increase your Eman and keep fighting and sacrificing and striving and you keep doing it, and doing it and doing it, even when it's really hard and you are alone, and you're marked, and you feel like a stranger.

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

Right? Ready? Like, what is wrong with you? Okay. And you feel like that, but you continue to do it, then you receive this.

00:52:53--> 00:52:58

That's why they right? Are they are they rise this high? Of course.

00:52:59--> 00:53:28

They're not higher than the profits, and they're not higher than the moderate. Right. But well, Mater is possible could they could be equivalent or higher possibility, but definitely not higher than the profits. So the profits when they admire them, it doesn't mean that the profits will have something equivalent or less. That just means that this is something incredible and beautiful. But they've risen this high because of their sacrifices. And that's why also the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.

00:53:29--> 00:53:30

He said

00:53:34--> 00:53:36

there's light on their face.

00:53:38--> 00:54:20

Because what does that reflect the light of what? Ema. There's light on their face. They're emanating light, because there's light in sight. And there's some of that in the dunya. But it's fully on full display in the earth here. But there's some of that in the dunya. We could almost see light coming from somebody's face because of their Eman will lo alum we're not we're not going to judge that that person is in Jannah. But you can see it sometimes right. But on the day of judgment, it will be fully on full display. And the beautiful thing here he said Ali's Salatu was Salam. He says they're not afraid when people are afraid. And they're not sad when people are sad. And that is

00:54:20--> 00:54:30

definitely 100% On the day of judgment in the era, but a portion of it is in the dunya as well. Because in the earth era

00:54:32--> 00:54:35

they're not afraid when people are afraid because where are they going

00:54:36--> 00:54:49

to Janna so there is no fear. And they're not sad when the rest are sad. Why? Because Allah removes that sadness, and he gives them everything that they want. So there is no reason to be sad.

00:54:50--> 00:54:53

Right? So the greatest maybe

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

hardship maybe that we face in this life or these two things. Sadness

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

and fear.

00:55:02--> 00:55:14

Right, isn't it? I think it is sadness and fear. Because you're trapped between two things past and future. And you're in the present between these two things. The past brings what?

00:55:15--> 00:55:19

Sadness and the future brings fear.

00:55:20--> 00:55:31

So how do you overcome this? So we know that the people on the Day of Judgment, when they have this assurance from Allah azza wa jal will have no fear and no sadness. Can we have some of that in the dunya?

00:55:32--> 00:55:33

Yeah,

00:55:34--> 00:55:50

you can, when you trust him, subhanho wa taala, and you rely on Him and you attach yourself to him, bring yourself close to him, and know what is coming next, then you will lose some of that sadness or a lot of it.

00:55:51--> 00:55:54

And you will lose some of that fear or a lot of it.

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

Because he say, if Allah is with me, I have nothing to fear.

00:55:59--> 00:56:21

If Allah will assist me, I don't have to be worried about anything. Tomorrow, Allah will take care of it. As he took care of me yesterday, he'll take care of me tomorrow, and the day after, what if this happens, or that happens? Let it happen. I'll ask Allah for support and Allah will assist me, I'll rely on him and he'll be sufficient for me. Does that not remove a lot of fear? Then

00:56:23--> 00:56:43

they'll shaytaan will come after a few hours will whisper again then you have to fight him again. But that's the battle. And as far as sadness, why did that happen? That was terrible. That was this that it was the but do you say it had to happen? There was wisdom in it Allah wanted it this way. And Allah will compensate me for whatever I went through.

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

Then

00:56:46--> 00:57:19

forget about it done no sadness. You lost something Allah will give it to you will replace it will compensate then there's no sadness. So we could lose a lot of that like the people of Jana will lose all of it. The closer we are to Allah as soldier. So if you want something from Allah this hadith is telling you Allah will give it to you. And if you want recognition, if you want love, you want motivation. Prophet sallallahu Sallam is telling you that Allah will elevate you to the highest ranks on light on men, minbar, or men eberman, nor on pulpits of light.

00:57:20--> 00:57:41

If you love Allah subhanho wa Taala and if you love for His sake and you love another for his sake, not because of anything that they will give you, but you look at that person and you say, that person seems to be so pleasing to Allah as Odin and I love Allah and I will love him because of that not gonna gain anything from him, but you will gain everything from Allah azza wa jal because of it.

00:57:43--> 00:57:50

So this is in sha Allah it for tonight and let me know if you have any questions in sha Allah

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

give you a couple of minutes in sha Allah.

00:58:03--> 00:58:09

Meanwhile, we'll check if there's any. Oh, there's some few online questions actually. Well, 123456

00:58:11--> 00:58:13

anything here so far? Okay.

00:58:20--> 00:58:38

Okay, so is a good question. How do we balance not wanting reliance on people but not doing it overly maybe not being excessive, as Allah created us to help each other too, because some help. So we need some help. And we need some and we need to accept, of course.

00:58:40--> 00:59:21

It's impossible for you to live isolated from people you need people, right? You need the help of your parents, your kids, your spouse, your neighbor, you need that. So how do you balance it balance it by first of all minimizing it says that if you don't need it, you don't seek it. If you could do things on your own, you do things on your own. But then there are things that you can do on your own. And you realize that then you can ask for help. Definitely you can ask for help. And you ask for help believing that ultimately Allah is the helper another person but being also grateful at the same time that they decided to help. So if I'm asking you for help, give me a ride do this and do

00:59:21--> 01:00:00

that. Again, attach your heart to Allah zodat Allah is the One who allowed them to help one and them to help move their hearts so they could help you. So at that your heart to Allah azza wa jal, not people, but also be grateful. Because they could have said no. So you have to also thank people. So it doesn't mean don't ask people for help. Okay, you need the doctor. You need the plumber. You need You need people around you. So you can ask for people for help when you need that help in shell or if they offer it, okay, if they offer it, you could it could accept their help Inshallah, but again, it's just about

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

attachment of the heart

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

how do we recognize it? It is from Allah through people.

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

You cannot be 100% sure if people praise you Oh, this is definitely proof. You be can be hopeful.

01:00:17--> 01:00:34

If you will be you want to be more confident, analyze what you have done, is it you know righteous, analyze the praise, is it coming from someone who's righteous and knowledgeable? And then you will understand how much credence you should give how much

01:00:36--> 01:00:47

how much you should trust that prays, does it come from Allah azza wa jal? Or is it a sign of Allah's love or not? So you understand, so you got it like,

01:00:49--> 01:01:02

you gotta judge was like a lion. Thank you. So you got to understand, right? The action, whether it's righteous and who is praising you and then you will understand Inshallah, how much of it you should trust or not.

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

Now, if we do sadaqa jariya for example, a well in their name, or someone who has for someone who has passed away, do they still get the reward for it? So what I understand from it, please correct my understanding if it's incomplete if you do sadaqa jariya for someone

01:01:29--> 01:01:37

a well do they get and and they pass away? Have they've passed away? Do they get the reward for it? Yes. So if somebody let's say somebody passed away

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

and you want to help them you want to benefit them

01:01:42--> 01:01:55

you could donate on their behalf and that donate could be just one sadaqa and it's done or sadaqa jariya continuous charity and that continuous charity will be recorded for them as long as their charity is ongoing inshallah

01:01:56--> 01:01:57

how to balance

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

between when

01:02:04--> 01:02:06

as a Muslim usually

01:02:11--> 01:02:35

so I'm going to try to read this and as I read it, understand it how to balance which he is using Christmas and we'll see kind of what Allah distance and daily living and differentiate between haram and halal when as a Muslim you always are everything in a position was to try to have a blessing of Allah in everything you do.

01:02:37--> 01:02:39

Okay, I'm trying to understand it so.

01:02:43--> 01:02:49

So my meaning the last I don't understand the last part of it. The last part of it

01:02:56--> 01:03:02

okay, I don't understand the second part of it. Insha Allah if you can just rewrite it just a second like help me understand the second part.

01:03:04--> 01:03:05

Okay.

01:03:10--> 01:03:10

Okay.

01:03:24--> 01:03:24

Okay

01:03:34--> 01:03:51

so the question here for my sister is that if we are reciting the Quran at home, do we need to wear hijab to recite it? No, we don't need to have the hijab to recite the Quran at home. Right? She said we are I have Waldo but do I need to wear the hijab? No, you don't need to wear the hijab

01:03:54--> 01:04:12

is a question sometimes when we praise we harm the person? How do we balance that we want to give the career of a good news for the person but we do not want to harm that person how to balance in praising. So how do we balance the new phrase, you don't be excessive. You don't over phrase.

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

You do it in moderation.

01:04:18--> 01:04:29

And you do it also in ways as long as you think it's helpful as long as you think it's motivating then you do it. And when you think it's not when it's excessive when it's counterproductive then you don't

01:04:30--> 01:04:44

I don't have a formula. I think it varies from one person to the other based on the action and based on you as well. So as long as you think that it is useful you do when you think it's excessive, it's too much. Then you kind of hold back a little bit

01:04:46--> 01:04:47

and you can sit on Rotten

01:04:49--> 01:04:50

something

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

to share.

01:04:53--> 01:04:59

Those guys who are on the computer a lot of them said I will probably fail on them but they have died. So we have

01:05:11--> 01:05:15

Now nonmedical Luffy so the sisters comment is that

01:05:17--> 01:05:33

she's saying can we incorporate in what we've said? The Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and what minerals are we hired on? What have what you'll Allah human life with equal unity? Was this not a hadith that we've studied in the book?

01:05:34--> 01:05:36

We studied it this in the book right?

01:05:38--> 01:05:38

Remember guys?

01:05:41--> 01:05:48

Yeah, remember that we studied that moment of how we failed on Can someone tell me what what Hadith there was

01:05:54--> 01:05:55

we didn't do that.

01:05:57--> 01:06:01

We did or we didn't. So I have people are saying we did.

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

Okay.

01:06:06--> 01:06:13

Because the reason I mean I remember that because it says there have been Illa the strong believer

01:06:14--> 01:06:34

is better and more beloved to Allah azza wa jal than the weak believer that anyone remember what we said about the strength in that hadith? Yeah, it's like a pop quiz that nobody had. Nobody anticipated. Anyone remember what we said about the strength in that hadith? Mineral away your type of strength? We said that is

01:06:37--> 01:06:43

a man right. member is the strength of iman. Is it physical strength or material strength?

01:06:47--> 01:06:47

Yeah,

01:06:49--> 01:07:29

yes, sir. No, no, right. Yeah, no. So it's not physical strength, and not material strength, though. We're not saying that it's not important. Right? Because Allah Azza did says, Well, I do know who Mr. Tata mencoba are my rebuttal. Hi, prepare for them, whichever you can have strength. So we understand that Muslims need to have material strength. That Hadith, though, is not about material strength and momentum away. It's not about material strength. It's not like go to the gym and build up your muscles and then Allah loves you more, or become have more money and Allah will love you more. It's not about that better and more beloved, in your iman because you are as a movement. But

01:07:30--> 01:07:45

Muslims and believers, they need material strength, so that we need to have to have some people who have money otherwise, how do you build anything, we need some people who will be physically strong, we need some people who will be intellectually strong. So of course,

01:07:47--> 01:08:31

what we talked about today, hopefully no one misunderstands it, when we're talking about success and what success is, it doesn't mean I told you, you could be successful here and there, but I'm someone trying to do what emphasize what is more important that in the case and some people they cannot be successful. So what do you do? So, if you can be successful in the dunya and in the Akeelah, then please by all means be alright. Because then you will have maybe energy and power to be able to do more good. But what is the greater success? That's what we want to keep in mind the greater success is the success of the Acura right. And if this if we need to talk about this more in sha Allah, let

01:08:31--> 01:08:36

me know in sha Allah because we could cannot address it so that we have a balance of honest understanding

01:08:38--> 01:09:00

Hadith number 13. So, we talked about it early on inshallah so, I mean, case kind of you understand Understand this hadith a little bit better, you could go to the explanation in the book and you can go so insha Allah go to the explanation in the lecture inshallah. So, just understand why we said it's of Eman, not of material strength or loyalty. So, I have something here are trying to understand

01:09:02--> 01:09:10

regarding veneration provision without you asking, Is this the meaning of is 2.3 spend of what Allah Subhana Allah gave you?

01:09:12--> 01:09:31

Okay. II provision if we want it and long for it, it's not blessed and what is spent from it, Allah subhanaw taala may not accept it, how to purify our hearts to not yearn for some worldly provisions we need. Look, there's there's you need, you need money. It's not like you're going to stop needing money. It's not going to stop

01:09:32--> 01:09:56

having this it's not hard it's not going to stop leaning towards the dunya that's not the issue here. Is that you catch it as this is happening? And you say no, Allah zodat is better and more sufficient. I don't I'm not going to be reliant on it and not going to be swayed by it. Let it come to you could be a millionaire. Yeah, no, wasn't a thought of No, I found rich.

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

Absorbed amount of knowledge, wasn't he not rich?

01:10:00--> 01:10:06

robucket Did he not have money to give? Okay, the were they immersed in the dunya

01:10:08--> 01:10:28

were they reliant on it? They could give it all away. So they weren't attached. So you could seek it. But you're not attached to it and you can give it away. How do you teach yourself not to be to yearn for it is to constantly remind yourself that it's not this thing that is making you rich, it's Allah.

01:10:29--> 01:11:06

It's not the money is not the check is not your employer that is making you rich, it's Allah azza wa jal. It could make you rich in other ways. You can just give your money, right? Like doesn't really happen often, but it can. So Allah azza wa jal is the one who is enriching you. Right? Allah azza wa jal is the one who's blessing you. Allah azza wa jal is the one who's providing for you. And you take also some of that money and you give it away for Allah. This is also how you live teach yourself not to yearn for it. Here it comes in here it goes Allah here comes in here it goes for Allah azza wa jal, and you know that Allah azza wa jal, right as he gave this he can give, give

01:11:06--> 01:11:16

something else. So you don't become dependent on it. Alright, you see, you understand it as replaceable. Right? And not,

01:11:17--> 01:11:27

can't. Central that's, that's that's how you deal with it. Right? And I hope that kind of answers your question. That's the best I can do.

01:11:30--> 01:12:10

How to purify love in the heart to have Merryfield Allah azza wa jal. So if you want to know Allah azza wa jal more you get to study, you're going to study first you just not gonna know him just because you're worshiping Allah Zoda know. So if you want to know Allah as origin, more you need to study. And then you take what you've studied, and you apply it in worship, and that worship will open additional doors of knowledge. And then you go back and study more, and you take that and you worship Allah using that and that will open even more and more doors to Allah azza wa jal and as you do this, your love for Allah will increase and you know Allah better and better. So this is how it

01:12:10--> 01:12:13

happens. Worship on its own doesn't work.

01:12:14--> 01:12:27

Knowledge on its own doesn't work. Not until you combine both of them you know, and you do and you do and you know, and they both feed each other and both of them enhance your knowledge of Allah azza wa jal and enhance your love of Allah is Allah.

01:12:28--> 01:12:29

Okay?

01:12:31--> 01:12:36

We're done online. Okay. Anyone here in sha Allah you have anything you want to add?

01:12:39--> 01:12:51

We're done. hamdulillah Li, sha Allah See you next week we have Milazzo Del Sol Subhanak. Along with him the shadow Allah hailed as the hero go to Lakewood. hamdulillah Bella means Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
