Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Smilla Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah, who on early he was so happy human who Allah.
Welcome to your brothers and sisters to our third class from the change of heart series. And after dedicating two weeks introducing this topic and building a case for it to building momentum, I think the time has finally come for us to start our long journey
with the actions of the hearts and we will begin tonight with the greatest of them all, if Allah subhanaw taala wills
using just two Arabic words Allah Jalla Jalla Lu who
summarized one of the most important qualities in the life of a Muslim,
which in his absence, Paradise is an impossibility. That's the paradise of dunya before the hereafter.
What were those two summarised words? They are when Allah subhanaw taala said, you read Luna, what
they intend his face. They, meaning the believers, they desire his face, meaning the face of Allah Jalla Jalla who they are people of a class sincerity.
They are people who didn't look for
gratitude from people.
They never stared into the pockets of others. They never longed or aspired for people's possessions, attention, praise, gratitude. Because they were as Allah had described, you really do know what you are who they only desired his face. So all eyes were on him subhanahu wa taala.
And what is amazing is that this topic of its last sincerity, and I add a caveat here right from the outset, let's make something very clear. I am not an authority for a split second to be speaking about this topic of a class baccala brothers and sisters sit tight.
Because any time the topic of a class is discussed, realize you're about to ascend a huge mountain. You're about to ascend heights.
And what is even more interesting is that these predecessors
the way they approached this topic of a class wasn't necessarily a theoretical one. So it wasn't about lectures they had when it came to sincerity, a class.
It wasn't a book that they would read a memorize regurgitate lecture style.
It wasn't something that they would study in a classroom setting, if last was for them, a living, breathing, talking reality.
If last was like an entity that they could hear, talk, see smell, touch. That's how they approach this topic. It hurt them, it wounded them.
It snapped them back to reality, when they would discuss the topic of a class, some of them will weep.
Some of them would even lose consciousness.
And let us begin perhaps with the most powerful narration in this department.
Which Muslim narrates on the authority of Shiva Lhasa he who said that I made my way to the city of Medina.
I entered the masjid Masjid Al Nabawi.
And I saw that people are gathered around a particular man, they were learning from him.
And so I asked, Who is that? Who is that man? They said, that is Abu Hurayrah Allahu Akbar, that is good companionship to bump into on a on a rainy day. He said, I will hoorah era. So he went to the gathering. He sat in the Halacha in the gathering of knowledge. And he said, I made sure I sit right in front of him.
And I was getting closer and closer as he was talking. By the time you'd finished and everyone had left. It was just me and I will Herrera the measure of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.
So I came to him and I said, yeah, the Herrera Abu Huraira
I know can be hatin over
them. I had Destiny behind Ethan sent me their home in the Rasulullah sallallahu alley, he was sending him to Hawaii.
I asked you with the fullness of my heart that you narrate to me something you heard directly from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a hadith
that you learned and fully understood.
Abu Huraira Radi Allahu Anhu said to him I find I will do just
that or Hadith and Nikka the Hadith inside me I tell him in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I'm about to narrate to you a narration that I heard directly from the mouth of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which I understood and fully comprehended,
shall figure the narrator he said to Manisha Abu Hurayrah Tanisha
to Monica Killeen and to maphack, then Abu Huraira is breathing became irregular.
See these durations about a class brothers and sisters, it physiologically affected them. It affected their blood flow. It affected their their nerves, their nervous system, it affected their the pumping of the blood in their heart look, a physiological change. He said his breathing became irregular. So we waited for a moment we gave him some space until he regained awareness. And he said now I will narrate to you a hadith that I heard from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I learned from him and I fully comprehended the narrator show failure. He said, once again, his breathing became irregular, he was unable to talk.
And at this moment he was he was passing his hand over his face. He was really struggling like he's about to blackout.
And then we waited for a moment we gave him his space and he became a writer. We then he said to Sophie, I'm going to narrate to you a hadith I heard from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he can't get it out. See, this is the difference between the Sahaba See, these were the hearts that received revelation so soft,
so receptive, so interactive with the information they were receiving.
I will tell you the Hadith, I heard it from him and I fully understood it. Sure failure, he said, then Abu Hurayrah passed out.
His body couldn't carry him anymore.
He said so I picked him up. I helped him kneel and we were or lean on to me. We were carrying him. He regained consciousness.
And then he said, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me
in the law ha ha that listen to the Hadith that he was struggling to bring in Allah Hi, Diana either kind of normal pm
Leah Kalia been and coo coo Luna tgic. He said on the Day of Judgment,
Allah subhanho wa Taala will descend
to settle the scores once and for all between people and judge between them. And during that time, every nation will be on its knees.
And then the very first people who will be called to stand in the court of Allah will be a man Janna Al Quran who had amassed the Quran memorized it recited it.
The very first to experience the reckoning from the billions, half feet of Quran.
The second Raju lon kuti, Nephi sebelah. A person who was killed in the path of Allah Shaheed jihad.
A third one I don't know who maloom Cassia a person who had a lot of money.
All of the nations are watching. This is how it begins before the kuffaar and then when I feel good, it begins with them.
Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring the one who had memorized the Quran and He will say to him, Allah or I Limca and Zelle to Allah Rasool II,
did I not give you knowledge of what I had sent to my messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the man will say yes, oh my Lord. Allah will say to him, so what did you do with that knowledge? The Reckoning has started. The man will say correct to fee tell Khurana Anna Layli what a HAR I recited Quran night and day Allah Akbar.
Then Allah will say can you speak a lie?
And the angels will say that you speak a lie. Then Allah will say to him, you only recited Quran you call it in a folder and then carry on. Only did that so that people say what a good recital he is.
Welcome Tila deck and that is exactly what people said. You want to dunya you want to praise I gave you what you wanted. Today in the hereafter you have nothing with Allah.
Then Allah will summon the second. This is a man who was killed in the path of Allah imagine Jihad and then fighting and dying the cause of Allah supposedly, Allah will say to him,
What did you do with your life? The man will say you tend to freak
We are to be jihadi forgotten to feed. I was instructed to carry out Jihad when I was alive. And so I did it and I fought and I died in your path Oh Allah, Allah will say you're a liar
and the angels will say you're a liar. You did that so that people say for the unknown Jerry, you're a brave man
well copied Adak and that was said
then the third one will be brought, who was he? The one whom Allah had given a lot of money. Allah will say to him, Alan oversteer Alec, Director, Callum tatouage
did I not give you so much money? Such that you never needed a favor from anyone?
And then I will say yes. Oh my Lord you did? allows it. What did you do with that money? He will say was all to Rahim. matassa duct I used to spend on my family. And I used to give in charity law Akbar. Allah will say that you are a liar.
And the angels will say that you are a liar.
But you only gave that money so that people say fool I don't Jawwad such and such is a generous man. And that is exactly what people said about you.
Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Abu Hurayrah said, Then the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam put his hand on my knee.
And he said yeah, other Hurayrah hola Ecosa Oh, well, you Hulk Allah He Tusshar will be him and now we are among those three people. Oba Herrera will be the very first three who will be cast into hell on the Day of Judgment.
What was their downfall brothers and sisters?
What was their downfall?
intention there was no lack of action. Don't get me wrong. Some of them spending the night in Salah Quran, other spending his money, we love money, the third die, he gave the most precious gift to his Lord. None of it was worth anything to Allah because the intention was missing.
Now you know
now that I think at least I have your intention. With respect to the importance of what we're about to discuss. Let us first break down what is the meaning of this reading class we'll be using it a lot in this lecture and you'll be hearing it a lot in your life. If last we translate as sincerity. What does this word mean?
From an Arabic perspective purely from a linguistic perspective, even though that is The Linguist he said it is bookmark I use Aloha the three letters the origins of HA
sod us lon wha hey don't move party Don't worry attend Thea to che II water heavy boo hoo. He said the three letters of heart and Nam and solid Hi Lhasa which is the origins of the word S Class sincerity. He said this means
to purify something or to refine it to purify something and to refine it. So you take something that you want there is a skin around it or there is or around it, there are extras around it there are impurities.
So you purify that matter. Until you get to the core of what you want. In this case it is Allah gender till you get to the core, the essence the
need the pulp of what you want.
That is a class just from an Arabic perspective to purify and to refine something look at how the Quran uses this word. Describing milk. Do you know any drink that is purer than that?
They say it is whiter than milk or pure than milk.
Allah said we're in Allah cornfield and RME libre, there is a lesson for you in livestock.
Newspeak home me Murphy mattoni him him being the fourth you dummy lab and and highly science.
Only shall we be we give you a drink
from its bellies that livestock that comes from excrement between excrement and blood. And between it we give you a drink. That is hardly Swan look a class that is purified.
palatable for those who drink.
So Allah gender Janelle Ando, who described the milk that you drink from the bodies of those grazing livestock as being a drink that is harmless, pure, refined, because it's coming between two areas of the body that carry filth, an area that carries blood and the other calories, excrement between them comes this refined pure milk
and you say it is whiter than milk? It's a miracle from Allah subhanahu wa taala
And if you were to spot a drop of blood in your, in your milk, or say a drop of excrement just a drop of excrement in a barrel of milk, you wouldn't accept it, it'll be thrown away immediately. Because milk is harmless. That's how it shouldn't be. It shouldn't be harmless.
And similarly, if our deeds have a drop of insincerity in them,
they are at risk.
They are at risk because Allah wants to do that. What
do you understand now from an Arabic perspective where this word comes from a class, something that is pure, something that is
Now you ask for a definition. What does Eclass mean from an Islamic perspective? We say sincerity what is sincerity? Look at how our scholars have approached this topic. I'll give you maybe two definitions
are the vital Marashi Hadith transmitter, he said a class is this Alia Clouseau and astellia a file with Abdullah he will bouting he said is last is when your outward and inward behavior are aligned.
So what you are doing is representative of what you have inside of you. And what you have inside of you, represents itself by what you do.
They are aligned, you're not doing more than what is inside of you.
You're pretending to be a person of who show up. But there is no clue on your heart. You're pretending to weep in public but there is no weeping in your heart.
So for those that he says what is my Hi Fi, if class is when your outward and inward actions they are perfectly what they are aligned.
A second definition was given by email but not by him.
You see, they're always revolving around the same meaning as emailing them to him. He said, If now so. And that Luba Allah Angelica Shahidan, illa Allahu Allah, ma jazzy and cy
is when you reach a state, where you don't desire
anyone to witness your actions, but Allah
and you don't desire, any reward from anyone but him.
Did you get that in class is a state where you don't desire anyone to witness your actions except ALLAH, and you don't desire a reward for anything you do. From other than Him Subhanallah water.
This is a class, generally speaking their brothers and sisters from a definition
And the question that poses itself here is, why does a class have this status?
What is it that gives a class this high an unprecedented and unparalleled attribute and virtue such that it caused people before us to pass out and for their breathing to become irregular? What did they know about a class that perhaps we didn't know?
I'm going to share with you brothers and sisters, a few points, perhaps seven of them.
And I don't know which one is more important than the other?
The first of them only class, dear brothers and sisters,
is a cause of erasing sins, even the most major of them. Do you have certain doings of yours that you feel Perhaps Allah will not forgive? Certain things that you would be too shy to think about, let alone speak about later on broadcast to people? If that person is you and that person perhaps is me? Undoubtedly, a class is a means of erasing the most major of sins. If a drop of it touches a person since then bid farewell to those who yet
you're all aware of the famous Hadith which Abdullah he Muhammad imulast generates.
So he will be talking to the man who had a card, remember, the one who brings Allah subhanaw taala the Day of Judgment 99 scrolls worth of sins. Imagine each one of those scrolls, is as far as you can see.
99 of them. This man was a binge sinner. I don't know how he had time to commit all of it. May Allah Pardon us. He comes to Allah with these crimes.
And they're about to be weighed against his good deeds. As for his personalities, his good deeds, they don't they don't find any.
Then Allah subhanaw taala will ask this man I don't care I mean ha ha ha Do you deny any of this the man will say no minute.
Allah Almighty will say to him Allah Allah not get get that till half you don't have the angels who were
documenting your sins oppressed you in any way with this is no Oh my God.
Allah will say to him, do you have any excuses? The man will say no, my lord.
And Allah will say to him,
however, we will not oppress you, you do have a good deed. And then a small card is presented. Imagine 99 scrolls as far as you can see, and then a small card and it says inside of it.
That was his only good deed, the statement of the hate La Ilaha illa Allah.
Then Allah will say go and witness the weighing of your deeds. The man will say, RB what is the use of this card? I don't need it. Allah will say keep it we will not oppress you on this day.
What happens they are placed on the scale now. His future is at stake. The narrator said, ie the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, for Tasha to sieging that the scrolls have sins when flying up into the air
and the other side of the scales, such Gulati
the card fell to the ground outweighed everything the Prophet said, some Allahu Allah has said, fella, yes, nice, Meenakshi. There isn't anything that can outweigh the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. So the man was forgiven because of one good deed, which was La ilaha illAllah. Now wait, wait, is this the whole story?
Is this the whole story? Or is there more to it? How is it that this man could get away with all of those crimes? No salah? No see I'm just the shahada and he gets away scot free.
Look, shareholders let me know Tamia he comments on this. He's been harsh. He said
for Harvey he had woman Carla Harvey is nursing was it in Canada called a house where he was so he will be talking. He says what he left for al Qaeda in the
Galleria in hola hola Miata Raja how to translate. He says this is the outcome for someone who said La ilaha illAllah. With a class with sincerity.
He said because we know people who will commit major sins from non Muslims who would say La ilaha illallah in dunya. But they still go to hell. How come because the class was different.
So I asked you, my dear brothers, my dear sisters, what was it that raised the sins of this man?
It wasn't just the Shahada. It was
the moment of a class. It could have been a moment in the night where he really believed in Allah and he said it from the entirety of his soul. You know, in Allah, a glass melts away lifetime's worth of sins. And that's why the prostitute who gave water to a thirsty dog and Allah was grateful to her and he entered her gender despite her prostitution. Even though Tamia he comments on this, he said,
for how the soccer team kelda The email in her listening feed, I'll be how our inner Felicia couldn't do better in circuit Kanban that could engender. He said this prostitute woman gave water to the dog with pure sincere Eman. Otherwise we know not every prostitute who gives water to a dog enters Jana.
Do you see? So we said point number one if last what does it do it dissolves mountains worth of say yard brothers and sisters that's isness sincerity. Number two is last sincerity brings you has an ad deeds that you never did. Imagine meeting Allah with CRM and Hajj and Quran and other noble deeds of justice and hate and goodness that you will never did. You intended it if the opportunity came.
And that is why
messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said as Muslim the rates of new authority of saheliyon have
been set at Aloha the shahada type you sit in the lava, Hula, hula, and as either shahada you were in that if you Rashi.
He said whoever asks Allah for martyrdom
with love with certain truthfulness from his heart. Allah will give him the position of martyrs even if he ends up dying on his bed.
The highlight the Mercy class brings you happiness that you didn't do.
But the opposite is true.
If you intend a say a sale but you can't do it because finances aren't there looks aren't there a contacts on it? Their time of day is not there. You intend to do a sin but you just don't have the opportunity to do it careful. The same applies.
And that is why both Bukhari and Muslim the rate on your authority of Abu Bakr, that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, either tackle mostly money besides the HEMA when two Muslims meet one another in a duel to fight carrying their sword for God
Well back to finance, the one who killed and the killer or the one who is killed and his killer. They're both in hell.
So the Companions they said we understand the one who was
the one who killed why he's going to hell, but the one who the one who died.
Why? Why did he go to hell? He didn't do anything. He said in the whole Kalahari Hassan Allah Catholics are heavy because he was intending to kill his brother if he could.
So he's treated as if he killed the Muslim.
So this is point number two is last brings you those deeds that you couldn't do. There was Subhanallah an amazing story I read this is just a quick tangent.
A man called Amory relief, he was one of the Muslim army generals in the land of hurrah Hassan.
And he died. When he died, people saw him in a dream.
They said to him, what happened when you met Allah? How was it when you met alone? Are you okay?
And he said, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah forgive my sins, because of an intention I had, when I was still alive.
He said, When I was still alive, I once climbed a nearby cliff, and I looked at my army. And I was amazed at their numbers. I was amazed at how equipped they were. And I said, in my heart, I wish I could have lived during the time of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam, to support him with my men.
So Allah was grateful for that intention, and he raised all of my sins. I de la ilaha illa Allah Subhana Allah. So we said, what is your philosophy? What was number one, show me its value from your notes ratio. It is an erasure of sins, even the most major of the jankier second
brings you hazards that you didn't do. Number three, is last brothers and sisters
amplifies your good deeds or diminishes them.
It's the secret ingredient, that when it is added to something, it grows in baraka and size. How many good deeds can we do in our lives say you do a good deed the value of it is x.
Then you plug in this formula called if law sincerity. That deed becomes x to the power of 10x to the power of 700x to the power of a million depending on how pure your sincerity is. That's a smart investment.
Rob ba Malin serene
to have women who knew you or Obama in a way him to hero Nia Abdullah had been Barack He said those words he said there may be a small action but the intention makes it huge.
And there may be a huge action but the intention makes it what
intention makes it small.
So what are you intending when you attend the lecture like this?
What are you intending when you pray? What are you intending when you recite Quran? purify it yeah Colonia heart as much how Allah will reward you in ways that you and I we don't deserve.
You know the famous Hadith
where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Abu Hurayrah he said mentor sadaqa the ugly Tamara whoever gives a charity even as small as a date Sunday at eight What is it eight
Min has been by him but from pure money, halal money, no alcohol, no interest, no pornography no drugs from pure income. Koala Kabbalah who ended up buying it and Allah only accepts that which is pure what happens if given a charity what happens?
In Allah Hodeida Yakubu hobby I mean Allah who receives that charity in his right hand.
So my you are be highly a honeycomb camera, you will not be a Hadoken fellow well who then Allah will nurture that good deed, he will nurture that charity. He will foster it the same way you nurture your merrier animal. Until that sadaqa becomes like a mountain on the Day of Judgment. Like
it's an amplifier. This is number three. Last is an amplifier of good those good deeds. So don't let your efforts go to waste. You're praying for fasting you put on your hijab, Hamas purify the intention, you're doing it anyway, get the most the greatest return on investment.
Number four is last is a transformer a class is a transformer of deeds.
You can take a normal action, something mundane normal neutral like eating drinking, your matrimonial relations, neutral matters, normal matters, you pass it through a class and then it transforms it into Y shaped that will please you on the Day of Judgment.
To people may do the same thing.
But they don't use this machine called the class. So one person just eats and drinks and gets nothing out of it. And the
other intelligent one passes it through sincerity, he gives it a good intention. It becomes an investment, it becomes accuracy material. Right? You know, since antiquity, alchemists have been in their labs toiling away trying to discover this apparatus that will transform worthless materials into precious items. Right, you know, to transform rocks into diamonds or stones into gold, right? They've been doing this for years.
That Brutus exists hamdulillah it's called the class the intention class, take something normal like it's sleeping for it through this apparatus, it transforms into something very valuable on the Day of Judgment has an urge good deeds that will save you take you to Ghana.
And so Mohammed bin Jabba the sahabi, the scholar, he said, In the animal to Morocco, for the cebuana Allah He called me to come
over this, you are the lucky no matter you come to Cebu,
I fall asleep at night. And I hope that Allah will reward me for my sleep the same way he will reward me for my prayer.
In other words, he is saying that I'm intending to pray at night. So my sleep I hope Allah will reward me for every second of snoring, every tossing and turning, I hope Allah will reward me for that sleep, because I have a good intention attached to it, which is what to pray at night.
You know, in the law. I remember one of my teachers, he said to me, when we were still in Yemen studying, we were in the house of our Sheikh.
And someone knocked on the door. So he said, my teacher, I went to the door to open she said to me, hold on a minute, what are you doing? I said, I'm going to open the door. He said, Okay, sit down, and I'll do it.
So he went to the door, he opened it and he came back. He said, You know why? I told you to sit down because you don't have many good intentions. Like you just want to open the door and you're going to let this opportunity go to waste. Let me tell you what I intended when I went to open the door well, I intended to walk towards my brother and assist him toward keeping standing in the sun I intended to when I see him smile. This is a sunnah I intended to put my right hand in his right and this is also a sunnah I intended to give him the full Islamic greeting. This is also a sunnah I invited to bring him into my home. This is a sunnah I invited I intended to honor him in the house. This is a
sunnah I intended to give him space in the medicalization. Now, he said he listed around 40 or so intentions just to open the door.
Right? What does the Neo do?
The Neo transforms actions. So when you sleep, when you drink when you with your spouse. Right? When you're traveling. When you put on your aftershave brothers, when you comb your hair, Pura intention to glorify Allah and it somehow and Allah will not let you down, make it into an investment in your athletes. Don't let any second of your short life go to waste. It is a transformer.
This is number one.
Number five, number four.
Another one of the reasons why the Scholars they gave the topic of the intention such great Paramount's because if Kalani Howard, the NIA class sincerity. It is the cause of divine sponsorship of your projects.
Are you doing something for the religion? Are you posting things about Islam? Are you are you preaching Are you are you writing or what are you doing? If not intended? When there is a class, Allah subhanaw taala and his divine self will take it upon Him to His divine self, to take your project and to spread it to the four corners of the world. Even if all of the odds are against you. Show him a class he will do the tough parts of Hannah who are the ILF
Brahim he called people alayhi salatu salam to do Hajj from Mount Abu kurnaz. In the barren desolate, empty desert people Allah has instructed you to do Hajj come to Mecca, no one was there. Has Allah not conveyed the message?
Why because if last
when you say malapa The name of a compilation of Hadith
what name do you think of?
What name do you think of Imam Malik? Do you think of any other name?
We think of Malik, he authored them all compiled them a lot of Hadith. Did you know The brothers and sisters that during the time of Imam Malik there were many more pups. There were many similar compilations of Hadith with that name malapa.
So people came to Malik and they were like, Why are you trembling yourself?
This has been done before. How was this going to be novel? How's it going to be a different?
Imam Malik. He said show me something that's been authored.
That's what they said. Here's a more
So he looked at it for a moment. He closed he put it aside. He said to them, listen.
So Darla Munna Merida became one. You will soon find out which of these books were intended for Allah.
You will find out
the narrator said that can NEMA all theoretical KHUDOBIN Phil Phil Abbar
It was as if those books were just thrown in a well we don't know of them.
When you say mullet but you don't think of the merata of abo ibvm that exists or the merata of Ivanova that exists May Allah accept from them you think Malik you don't think anyone else why we think it's a class
and in another narration he said to them, McCann and Elahi aapke what is intended for Allah will remain
and Mohammed Abu Hanifa and Arabia Abu Hussein they said
couldn't Ramallah you better be he was gonna hear
everything that is intended for other than Allah will fade away sooner or later.
Don't get too caught up with those retweets and no shares and a huge exposure on coverage means nothing. It's a matter of time.
It's like a Frankenstein that's connected to a life support machine. It looks big and strong and tough. You switch off the machine, it's dead. That is the project of a Muslim. When it is not mixed to the class, it will it's bound to fail sooner or later.
So it's a what?
It's a cause of class is a cause of divine sponsorship, Allah will take your project and carry it send it to the world. If we are sincere in what we do.
The penultimate one I wanted to share with you is also an EClass. Brothers and sisters is a means of your
is your Savior from your worldly stresses? Are there things that keep you up at night? Do you have anxieties that bother you? Do you have financial stress? Is your Islam not where you want it to be? Is there anything in dunya that's bothering you in any way? If pneus is a means of alleviating your stresses in dunya before the hereafter.
Look at the story of it maybe no Abby Jahan,
I crema. He spent a lifetime fighting against Allah and His Messenger Salah and he wasn't till the last hour when Mecca had fallen to the Muslims and Crema was still fighting against the Prophet SAW Allah is and he was a warrior.
But a stubborn man indeed.
And when he heard that Mecca had fallen to the Muslims, he couldn't bear living in Arabia anymore. He decided to go towards Yemen and live there is that Bucha had been killed anyway.
His wife Omar Hakim had become Muslim. However.
He made his way to the coast, his wife, she catches up, she said I came up.
I've just come from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he promised me that if you come to Him,
He will accept your repentance. He will not harm you. Because the Prophet sighs and and pardoned all of the Meccans all of the pagans, he pardoned them except a few war criminals. He said, No, they are not to be pardoned. I claim I was one of them. So Omar Hakim is saying he's just guaranteed your safety. And I haven't here in writing. He didn't even look at her. It didn't even look at her. And he got onto the boat, and he made his way to Yemen.
so upset that the Muslims have become victorious.
And they're as they were avoiding Mitzi.
The boat began to move and the waves were like canopies, and death was now imminent. Academia began to matter, Shiva key, prayers, prayers, calling upon the idols. So the captain said to him, Oculus Be sincere. Meaning single out your worship for Allah be sincere loungey Kayama inland collapse during this moment, nothing will save you but sincerity.
Like crema Subhanallah at that moment, he said it was like as if the blinkers of arrogance had just been lifted from me. And I realized that I was just resisting the truth.
He said Ma or I feel or in nominal Hawk, I'm just running away from the truth.
He said, Oh Allah, if you saved me. I will go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I will pledge allegiance to Allah saved him. Allah saved him. And he went back, and he crossed into Mecca, pledged allegiance with the prophets of Allah. And he said, part of my repentance is that every battle you fight, I will be with you. I crema he did this fighting courageously alongside of the Muslims till he got to the Battle of
And he was found breathing his last during the battle, and there was three of them who were breathing their last and how they didn't know Hashem and Abdullah him

He said, No, I think my my brother needs it more. They gave it to him. He said, No, I think I couldn't manage it more. They brought him back to academia. He just died. They went to the secondary and he just died and they went to the third and his soul had left him as well. What saved him brothers?
What saved him?
What brought back the wife of academia?
Because she said to him, If you don't become Muslim, I'm finished with you. What brought back his wife. What saved him from the see? What brought him Islam? What gave him martyrdom?
Sincerity. It's a Savior from your worldly stresses Allah supports the sincere ones in dunya, before the hereafter. Lastly, this is the seventh one I promise you if the last is our Savior in the hereafter.
When you will hear the announcement. God Allah who had a young boy young outside of Kenya suitable, Allah said on the Day of Judgment this day.
The truthfulness of the truthful ones will be benefited by it.
That is the day that people have a class will shine.
Junaid Baghdadi who is the famous worshipper of Iraq of Baghdad scholar and worshiper
spent his whole life reminding and teaching about Allah agenda.
When he died, people saw him in a dream
and they said to him, What did Allah Almighty do to you?
How was your standing before Allah?
What happened? He said,
Basha tilcon Isha rocked
wha that till July Bharat Worthen yet till Cameroon was a habit till Kuru zoom oil Ambien vana in La Rocca to including an Arca Harbin as he said, all of those fancy expressions we used to say have disappeared.
And all of those complicated words have gone.
And all of those sciences we used to teach have disappeared. And nothing benefited us on this day other than a few units of prayer that we used to pray at night,
or all boiled down to a few actions of worship that were done with a class and that is what will save people on the day of judgment that people have a class Abdullah he Bucha Dan generous man.
He was known for his generosity.
In fact, he's from the tribe of taming the people of tribe of 10 produced many notable people in Islam and India. Helia he was a Jackie the man pretty Islamic man. But he was known for his generosity. He gave things like he didn't fear death.
But he died before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
became a prophet.
And our mother I Isha, she said to the prophets, Allah I sent them that, you know, Abdullah, he magenta Han was a very generous man, so good with the guests. The whole of Arabia knew about him. What's his outcome? Will he enter Jannah? He said to her know why.

He wasn't worthless.
So if last is a means of saving people on your mukaiyama, as well.
coming towards the end of the lecture, dear brothers and sisters, and a question that poses itself of course is how do myself how do we us as a group, work towards a class
because it's a work in progress for every one of us.
it is possible to attain it. It's not out of reach.
I tell you what is impossible.
What is impossible is for a person salvation to be hinged upon a class and then Allah makes it impossible to attain. Some sometimes the way a class is discussed, it makes you think my days I can I can never be a brokenness. I can never be sincere. It's too hard. I say to you, No, that's impossible. Hold on a minute, because we've just understood that safety on the Day of Judgment is pending upon the class. So how can it last be impossible? There is no safety without it. No, there are ways to get to a class and Allah subhanaw taala will pardon our inevitable shortcomings and I will share with myself and then you a few pathways for those who wish to work on their class.
The first of them your brothers and sisters is remember the favor of Allah upon you. If you feel you have insincerity, if you feel you are showing off when reciting
Quran, you fear that people are praising you for being a practicing Muslim and you're being praised and you just don't know. You're showing off maybe remember the favor of Allah upon you, that will usually quiet in the screams of showing off. Why? You say to yourself who guided me to Islam?
who inspired me to worship him? Why me from all others, others who are far more intelligent than me, far smarter than me better grades than me better access to knowledge than me? How come? Allah chose me to worship him over others? How is it that I find it easy to stay away from sins that my neighbor is falling prey to every other day? That's the favor of Allah upon you. That's not your intelligence that Allah has faded and he can pull it away at any moment. You know, now they can assalamu Allah said they, they think it's a favor upon you or prophet that they've become Muslims.
To let the moon know hallelujah Islam, say to them, it's not a favor upon me that you've become Muslims. That Allahu Allah command how they're coming from Saudi. Rather, it is Allah's favor upon you that He has guided you to faith if you are truthful. Remember, he chose you from the masses. This is a humbling reality. lowdham Allahu Allah, Allah and today in our on our last on Lena, as a prophet, so I sent him would say if it wasn't for you, Oh Allah, we would not be guided would not give him charity and we would not have prayed. This is number one. Remember Allah savor upon you.
Number two, remember the significance of people
remember the insignificance of people? This helps you manage the screams and the demands of showing off?
Who are people?
What are people
for the sake of whom you are risking your hereafter that you're trying to impress him? Or her? Or then who are people and what are people to analyze? How deep are they? Well?
Look at man when he's hungry, how does he behave?
Or when you use thirsty, vulnerable, I show up for him.
Look at man when he runs out of his house and he's not wearing his unclothed for one reason or another. I show up for him.
Look at it man how he behaves when he's ill.
Or when he hasn't had matrimonial relations for X number of days how some people behave. We show up for these week beings. Who are people in what are who you
are when he becomes poor.
Or when he becomes rich. When they love you people they praise you and they exaggerate and when they hate you, they despise you they swear at you they exaggerate these are the people who are trying to show up for who are people and then when they die look at the person that you intended their pleasure.
If you are unaware of is that don't worry the labels will tell you because of the stench of that corpse
and these are the people we want to show up for a lot of people and what are people in the man is created from a despised fluid, our origin the semen at despise fluid sperm, if you were to go out of your house, and some of it still on your clothes, you'd be so embarrassed if someone was to see it. Despise fluid that's what you and I were made out of. What is there to show off about and how are we intending to impress people that's the origins of them kings and princes presidents despise fluid yeah heavy.
In my lab, one of the governors of the Muslim provinces was seen walking with arrogance. You know the strut you know the billionaire's walk. So a man called Butare febrile Abdullah he said he had said to him, you don't walk like that. Allah doesn't like that type of walk. The man said to him,
Do you know who I am? He said, Oh, I know exactly who you are.
Oh look at Loot Fatone, Madeira Fuuka g fat on the right one terabyte data allocator Hamidullah, you are the one who started off as a despite fluid semen and you're going to end up as a rotten corpse and between those two phases, you carry all sorts of feces and excrement inside of your stomach. That's, that's just who you are.
So, the narrator said he stopped walking with arrogance after hearing that.
So remember, the favor of Allah upon you. Step number one. Number two, remember the significance of people not working using your akhira over a man, even if he used to potential father in law.
The third way is perhaps one of the most effective hide as many of your good deeds as you can keep them away from the eyes of
Allah, Allah in the realista. The best antidote for React showing off is hiding them.
Hide them hide your deeds. Our predecessors were so upset when people discovered something good that they
Did overdoing hide them. Such that if you find yourself weeping in public, you think Oh hamdulillah It's okay. I hope I'm not showing off because I've trained myself to do that by myself.
But if you only ever weep in public you only ever pray in public you're only ever
remember a lot in public back home is just binge Netflix saying that you got something to worry about. Here's the mentality assume that your public actions don't count.
extreme scenario, right? Assume your public acts of worship don't count on day to day judgment. It's only what you do in private.
Did you start measuring what you do in public versus what you do in private? Oh, my days is scary now.
Right? And that's why when a man said to her they said well, yeah, man, my hypocrite. To the prophets I send them name me as one of the hypocrites I know you have information of this hadith and how they said to him, too slowly either connote
what is dealt with either as inept.
Do you pray when you are alone?
And you ask Allah to forgive you when you commit a sin? The man said yeah,
I would ever say to him either had for major Allah, Allah home with Africa go my brother, Allah has made you a hypocrite. Like what do you pray when you are alone? That's number one.
Number Number Three. Hi, God. Number four. Remember, the consequences of showing off? We've spoke about it abundantly.
It's a form of shoot, associating partners with Allah. Good deeds will not count on the Day of Judgment. Good deeds will diminish in size, Allah will remove ease from your from your life. Remember, men Sana Sana Allah Hui woman, rah rah Allahu be whoever does something to be seen by people. Allah will expose you and whoever does something to be heard by people Allah would expose him to consequence. Remember the consequences of showing off. This will also quiet the demands that our neffs gives us to show off our deeds
This is number ish.
Number five, stay away from fame if you can brothers, sisters, stay away from pain. I know that goes against everything we're told nowadays about make yourself known and believe in yourself. Go out and show them what you're made of. I No, no, sorry. We subscribe to a different ethos. We don't like fame. And if it comes to us, it's a necessary evil and we try to manage it. We don't search for fame. Ma sadaqa Allah Abdul Hamba Shahara
Ibrahim Abu Adham He said not true to Allah is a person who loves fame.
Not true to Allah is a person who loves fame. Ibrahim, Adam beautiful words Ibrahim, who was a famous man once he came into a city and people heard that the great Mr. O'Brien unite them has arrived and that he's now in this particular garden. So they went into the garden looking for Ebrahimian Rajim and he was there. He doesn't want to be known.
So they were like where is he Brahim don't have they're going around in circles. Where does he live in Belgium so he joined the crowd saying where is it I don't even know where where does he believe that
they weren't into book signings and all that stuff.
Yeah, with all due respect, running away from fame
number six do ah I'm going to teach you a lot of brothers and sisters try to learn this one if you can Prophets the lesson I'm taught it to Abu Musa nashoni Allahumma inni owl the weekend an oceanic epic Island was defeated Karim Allah Adam. Oh Allah I asked you to protect me
from associating partners with you whilst I know
and they asked you to forgive me for what I don't know. Allahumma in the old the weaker and Wushi kavika And Adam was the Pharaoh Karim Allah Allah research it memorize it. Lastly, remember brothers and sisters don't give up.
Last isn't about removing insincerity from your heart forever and eliminating it we can't do that Your Habib it's impossible Forget it.
It's about managing it and realizing it's an ongoing struggle. It's a battle. That in of itself is a sign of sincerity that you're scared of it bothers you.
And that's why Junaid he said
the one who was sincere. His heart changes around 40 times a day keeps changing intentions. One more i But the show of Daijiro houfy highlighted Wahida remain the center but the show off is in one state for 40 years.
Did you get that?
So the sincere when he keeps changing 40 times a day the insincere on the show off. He's in one type. He's in one state for 40 years doesn't care. Nothing to fight. It's just a show of he doesn't care. So don't
Don't give up. These are seven things to think about brothers and sisters
on the way to class, who's been recording the time of this lecture, how long have we been going on for
5058 minutes or less. So, we will stop here I want you to really conclude by speaking about
some examples of the people of sincerity from our heritage Examples from today for our beloved Mr. ODE and Omar animal back here and from the RBI and from our contemporaries, but the lecture will be too long so we will stop here and we will find a different way to disseminate this information felt like it was this life with some of the louder me now hadn't been happening now.
