00:02:14 --> 00:02:20

Fella comes back home when you are in la hora Sula, who forgot the first suppose and I'll be my my bad.

00:02:22 --> 00:03:04

All praises due to Allah. We seek His guidance and his forgiveness and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the whispering of our desires, whom Allah guides no one can misguide. In whom He Allah has to be misled. No one can guide and I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah alone, having no partners, and then we'll have Muslim Allah and he was setting up Mr. slave and His messenger. Allah Subhana. Allah says in the Quran, oh you believe fear Allah as he deserves to be feared and do not die except in a state of Islam. And Allah says, Oh mankind's, Fear your Lord who created you from one soul and produce from that soul its mate, and made from

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

their combination many men and women so Fear your Lord whom you ask each other by and by the ties of kinship, Verily Allah is Ever Watchful over you. And Allah Subhana Allah says, Oh, you who have believed, fear Allah and say that which is correct, he will correct for you your deeds and forgive you your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger than they are indeed victorious. To proceed

00:03:29 --> 00:03:31

these three verses that I began

00:03:33 --> 00:03:38

are used to begin the majority of the whole bus that you have heard in your lifetime

00:03:40 --> 00:03:45

and so a question to be asked is what is it about these verses?

00:03:47 --> 00:03:56

Yeah, your lady in Takala Puttaparthi Yeah, you Hannah Takara back home. Yeah, your lady and I'm going to talk Hola, hola, hola and Sadie, that these verses that you hear in multiple hija

00:03:57 --> 00:04:06

at the introduction of hooked up all over the world, what are they calling people to? And what is the commonality between these verses?

00:04:09 --> 00:04:18

You will clearly see that one defining commonality between these verses is the command for Taqwa.

00:04:19 --> 00:04:30

Yeah, you have the innominate duckula. Yeah, you have Nast dako Roberto. Yeah, you have lady and Taco Lucha cola cola. So the the, the command for Duckworth.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:35

This attribute of Taqwa

00:04:36 --> 00:04:39

is something that I wanted to spend this brief hotspot on

00:04:41 --> 00:04:45

because not only is it at the introduction of the hotspot,

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

but it is the thing that Allah Subhana Allah commands mankind most to have in the Quran. It is the thing that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said enters people into Jannah the most are two things

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

stucco and has no holdup, taqwa and good character.

00:05:05 --> 00:05:24

So the question then becomes what is taqwa in the first place? And then number two? What are the virtues of Taqwa? Why have it? And then number three? How do I acquire it? These are the three questions that Allah to Allah, that we are going to answer in this cookbook or we're going to present in this holds well as for what is taqwa?

00:05:26 --> 00:05:30

That was not something that the province level ally they send them defined for us.

00:05:31 --> 00:05:40

Duck what comes from the idea of protecting yourself a will kya shielding yourself from the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:05:42 --> 00:05:52

The Sahaba of the Allah and whom translated taqwa in different ways. So no matter how Tabata the line, when he asked Omega we asked, obey rather.

00:05:54 --> 00:06:00

He asked, he asked, obey Rhodiola and he asked them what is taqwa? asked him what is Taqwa?

00:06:01 --> 00:06:03

And he said, Ameerul Momineen.

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

Did you ever walk in a thorny path? And he said, Yes.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:30

He said, What did you do when you were walking down a path that was filled with thorns? He said, Shamar to watch that. He said, I gathered my robes and I brought them close to me. And I was careful where I walked. He said that is what Taqwa is. Dukkha is that you don't be loose.

00:06:31 --> 00:07:11

Tighten in your your clothes around you. Don't be loose with your tongue. Don't be loose with your gaze. Don't be loose with your actions that you be precise that you're aware of what you're doing. And number two, that you be cautious. He said that is taqwa. That is Taqwa. And one of the poets codified this and he says, he says that is Aruba. can be a little house a little high. Dakka Dakka was not commercially out of the shoki. Yet the Roma era ladder couldn't necessarily era in elgiva Minahasa. He said don't. He said Leave all sins, the small and the Great. That is what Taqwa is, and be like someone who's walking in a thorny path careful as to where they walked. And he said, Don't

00:07:11 --> 00:07:17

belittle small sins. Verily, mountains are made out of pebbles. And so number one, we have

00:07:18 --> 00:08:01

the definition that was given to topple Delano. Then we have number two, we have an even avatar level of the line who defining what Taqwa is, and he said, A taqwa and hopeful Meenal Jalin while Amaroo Bitton ZIL or Ryda Bill Killeen? Well is there Do you remember when he said that Taqwa is that you fear the sublime, the majestic that you fear Allah. And then number two Taqwa is that you act in accordance to Revelation. And then number three, he says it is to be content with little And number four, it is to prepare for the day of departure that is to adopt was totally been heavy, was not a component but from the tablet when he gave a beautiful definition of Taqwa he was asked by his

00:08:01 --> 00:08:19

students or rather he told his students he says, is walk it fitted for a new habit Taqwa he says if trials happen, tests happen. Fitna happens in a community he says repelled that fitna with Taqwa they said what what is taqwa? instead? What is Taqwa? And he said a Taqwa

00:08:20 --> 00:08:23

is to do that which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:24 --> 00:08:32

Upon a light from Allah, I don't know what you mean Allah, seeking, seeking the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:08:33 --> 00:09:06

And he said, and to avoid what Allah has prohibited upon a light from Allah, seeking Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has protection from his punishment. And so to do what Allah has commanded, that requires knowledge, upon a light from Allah, that's revelation, seeking the reward of Allah, that's a loss. I'm not doing it for the reward of people. I'm doing it for the reward of ALLAH SubhanA data and to avoid what Allah has prohibited upon the light from Allah revelation also fearing the punishment of Allah, not fearing the criticism of those who criticize, but doing it for Allah subhanaw taala.

00:09:07 --> 00:09:14

And so, if that is the meaning of taqwa, then what are the virtues of Taqwa the virtues of Taqwa are many?

00:09:15 --> 00:09:17

The virtues of taqueria many.

00:09:18 --> 00:09:49

Allah subhana wa Tada says, if Allah means radical Kitab hula like Buffy, who then immortality right at the beginning of the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala when you insult the fight, are asking Allah and you're saying no Siddhartha Mr. Team guide me the straight path. The rest of the Quran is coming as a response to your DUA. You are asking Allah for the straight path. And here is the book this is the guidance manual that you can Kitab without labor fee This is the Book about which there is no doubt, but it is guidance for the people of dukkha. So the first benefit of Topo is that it gives you access to benefit from the Quran.

00:09:51 --> 00:10:00

Does that mean that the people of Taqwa have to be those who are perfect? No. Can the people of Taqwa commit sins? Yes. Can the people of Taqwa

00:10:00 --> 00:10:18

We'll commit major sins. Yes, Allah subhanho data says in either ammirato Sad Filati mirabito magenta Nettie and Alibaba my watch will out or a deadly monoterpene Allah says race to the forgiveness of your Lord and paradise that is equal to the heavens and the earth that has been prepared for the people of Dupois what are their characteristics?

00:10:21 --> 00:10:41

Those who give charity will call the me and they will I find it nice what Allah who you're able to sit in until Allah subhanaw taala says they forgive and they overlook and they show excellence and then Allah subhana diocese we're living in an era LUFA and Schatten Avila Mo and foursomes that Rolla for stuff rolling over him. Oh, man, you're frozen over Illallah when I'm you sir.

00:10:42 --> 00:10:47

For him, yeah, Allah. Allah says in those who if they commit a fight and show they commit a major and decency.

00:10:48 --> 00:11:18

They don't continue. He says the Corolla they remember Allah. But this is still a description of the MacDuffie lecker Allah, and they seek forgiveness for their sins, when im user ru and they do not insist upon what they did. There could be a mistake, they could fall, but they get up there. Remember Allah subhanaw taala. They don't continue, they seek forgiveness and they move on. And that does not expel them from being of the category of the mute button that does not expel them from being of the category of them with a clean. In fact,

00:11:19 --> 00:11:31

in one of the greatest hadith of virtue, a hadith that many of us have heard many times before. Allah subhanho wa Taala will have seven categories of people in his shade on the day where there is no shade except for his shade.

00:11:32 --> 00:12:16

Rasulullah sallallahu de Sydenham says number one is Melaka and iodin, a just ruler. Number two is shabu Nisha Fariba. Tila, a young man who grew up in the worship of Allah or a young woman. Number three, a man's whose heart is attached to the masjid number four, a person a man who is invited to he's invited by a woman who is beautiful and has a great lineage and he says to her, I fear Allah subhanaw taala. Number five, a person who gives him charity so secretly that his left hand doesn't know what his right hand gave. A sixth person is a person who to people who loved each other for the sake of Allah. They gathered upon that and they separated upon that. And number seven is a man who

00:12:16 --> 00:12:57

remembered Allah subhanaw taala in solitude. And so his I teared from the mentioning of Allah Subhana Allah that all by himself. These seven are in the category of those who are shaded under the shade of Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment. What is the common thread between all of these seven categories? It is the threat of Taqwa they all had talk of Allah. The king had Taqwa of Allah when there was no person for them to fear anymore, because they are the highest, they're the boss, they're the ruler. They still feared ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and that forced them to be just, and the young person feared Allah subhanaw taala. And so when they were living at a time of their life, when

00:12:57 --> 00:13:10

passions walk with young people, and that's why the province of Elijah is in them says in the law had the idea of woman shopping Lisa, who somewhere that Allah subhanaw taala is amazed at a young person who doesn't have an inclination to their base desires.

00:13:11 --> 00:13:25

Being young, wild and free, that attitude that person who restrains themselves and and commits to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala during those turbulent years of their life. Number three, a person who whose heart is attached to the masjid.

00:13:27 --> 00:13:30

The place of Taqwa coming back and forth,

00:13:31 --> 00:14:04

to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and loving the place where they are reminded of the Taqwa of Allah. Then of course number four, a person who is invited to a private company of the opposite gender and that is stuck with that keeps them away. And then number five, a person who gives them charity that is propelled by their taqwa and the sixth, two people who love each other. These are the people of taqwa, ALLAH SubhanA Medina says that on the Day of Judgment, and as he Allah, on the Day of Judgment, all of them will be enemies to one another close friends, except for and what again, those people whose love was based on Taqwa that is the true love for Allah subhanaw taala that will be of

00:14:04 --> 00:14:11

benefit on the day of judgment. And then the Sabbath is a person who remembers Allah subhanaw taala privately. And so there it tears.

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

Taco Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:14:16 --> 00:14:39

There is no characteristic that a person can have that will bring them closer to Allah subhanaw taala heavy on their skills, as the Prophet saw the light as and then told us more than the Taqwa of Allah. And number two is good character Rasulullah Salah Lasala Leidos and I'm telling them I didn't need you but you know when you are when you're bidding someone farewell, and you want to give them advice.

00:14:40 --> 00:14:59

Soon in a month's time, some of us will be sending our kids to college for the first time they'll be going and living in Dallas or they'll be going and living in Austin or they'll be going and living in College Station and you want to give them advice like what do you do? What do you tell them? What's one piece of advice that you can give them for that I'll hold them down hopefully for a year or two years or three years or

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

For years until they come back Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam was walking as the ninja but then when I was being sent to be a judge over Yemen and also la sala basin and tells him he says it tequila hyphema

00:15:12 --> 00:15:25

fear Allah wherever you are have Taqwa of Allah wherever you are. There's one thing that I can tell you have Taqwa of Allah wherever you are and then number two, what to say at an Hassanal tempo set and follow a sin with a good deed it will erase it if you make a mistake.

00:15:27 --> 00:15:56

Don't let it define you. Don't let it continue. Cut it off and follow it with a good deed it will erase it and number three is will highlight the mass before looking Hasson treat people with good character, the province of Allah they send them this message is so beautifully consistent. He's the one who tells us that taco and good character are the heaviest on the scales. And here he is telling me I have them ninja but have Taqwa of Allah. show good character to people. Erase your sins with good deeds, follow them right after the other.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:02

The last question then becomes how do we become people of Taqwa? So difficult question.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:42

How do we become people of Taqwa but there are a number of things that we can point to number one, always. Our greatest tool in our toolbox for anything that we want to acquire is to ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And so a person asks a lot to make him of the people of taqwa, the province of the light as enemies to say Allah Khomeini Nana Socata Hooda took call with fafo when Xena or Allah we asked you for tuck when we asked you for guidance, and we asked you for self sufficiency. And we asked you for for chastity we asked you for these things. So to ask Allah subhanho data number two is to learn about the hereafter.

00:16:45 --> 00:17:19

The more a person becomes aware of how transient this life is, the more they become aware of the grave and its tears the more they're aware of the Day of Judgment more they are familiar with Jana and Johanna, I want you to look and just see just the last use of the Quran. Just look at Jama and look at how much Allah subhanaw taala mentions the Hereafter. This chapter of the Quran that was going to be the most recited chapter of the OMA of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam how much of it is mentioning the hereafter Acharya those was the little of those is

00:17:21 --> 00:17:48

hataoka Hadith of Asha again and again and again the hereafter is being reminded to us. Number three, is for a person to seek knowledge. Why seek knowledge because you cannot have Taqwa of Allah subhana dialer with regards to what he has forbidden, unless you know what is forbidden unless you're aware of what is required of your deen. So if a person doesn't invest in learning their religion, then they will never know what to have taqwa in.

00:17:51 --> 00:18:07

And number four, and I'll end with this is that a person do what the province the Malaita send them told them either need Java, he said to follow a sin with a good deed it will raise it. May Allah azza wa jal makers of the people of Taqwa according Massey Metro Mr Corolla you were looking for stuff in order for Rahim.

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

hamdulillah salah, salam ala Rasulillah. Who Allah and if so have you seen him * cathedra. So

00:18:20 --> 00:19:04

finally, I'd like to mention that next week in sha Allah Allah is we've began the blessing month of Muharram. And the province of Elijah is setting them up to not fast in a month. Other than Ramadan as much as he fasted in this busted month of Muharram. It's one of the sacred months, and specifically, we have the day of Ashura, which will fall on next Friday. And the province of Elijah and send them says that I expect that Ashura purifies the sins of the year that preceded and so it's a day of great opportunity. And it is one that we should encourage ourselves to fast as well as encourage others to fast as well. And it can be preceded by a day of fasting as well or it can be

00:19:04 --> 00:19:37

followed by a day of fasting as well. So a person can fast on Friday. They can fast on Thursday, they can frost on Friday and Saturday as well. All of that inshallah to Allah may Allah azza wa jal, except we ask Allah to allow us to hear the speech and follow the best of it. We ask Allah azza wa jal for paradise and will bring us close to that actions and speech and to protect us from the Hellfire will bring us close to it of actions of speech.
