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

Alhamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah he was happy he omala

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

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

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

Now they have overburdened me to take over the emceeing and you know, I don't like the abbreviation emceeing because it simply means mental case. So, I would rather prefer Program Manager.

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

I don't want to take a lot of your time. I know we've just had our lunch our boundaries are replete. And I think so laziness and laxity has started to settle in ourselves. So I think we need to refresh ourselves. Can you just stretch a bit up right left? stretch a bit stretch a bit we need to be active as Muslims believers we need to be vibrant stretch up left. If you don't mind just for a second. Can you just stand up and sit down just for a second stand up and sit down?

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

fast fast now now.

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

Taking some stickiness is a common law without becoming a barrier between me and our marvelous shave me Allah subhanahu wa taala preserving and protecting hafler will la hora Shekhar Suman, Hakeem, I don't think he needs any introduction. He is very well known. They shape who conducts who that TV. And I think one of the most trending of his videos is when someone came up to the phone call and I don't know if it is a woman or male she asked a question that is it allowed for the wife to sing for the husband? And she's amazingly answered that he just killed it. He said, if you have a beautiful voice definitely or else torturing Muslims is not accepted in Islam now.

00:01:44--> 00:01:51

So we will definitely welcome him she has him and Hakeem without wasting any time. That's a football match Quran Allah

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

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

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

wa sallahu wa salam O Allah Cardinal number otira Hamilton, Lil alameen the Bina Mohammedan. While early he was a happy woman, we had the Watson vision that he Medina, Bart as salaam alaikum, warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

Today's topic requires

00:02:30--> 00:02:36

a workshop, one for Vicar, two days, eight hours,

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

and one for Dora.

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

Unfortunately, we have only this

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

segment or lecture to try and

00:02:51--> 00:02:52

milk as much

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

benefit as possible.

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

And to highlight the issue of Vicar,

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

Vicar has a lot of meanings in the Quran. Some make it up to 16 different meanings, and some make it up to 20.

00:03:18--> 00:03:39

Vicar in English usually means or it is a noun opposite to forgetfulness. So when you remember something, I remember it, it's thicker the cartoon. And it also means to preserve.

00:03:40--> 00:03:51

It has the meaning of honor, it has the meaning of course and it has the meaning of prayer. It has the meaning of Torah, the Old Testament, mentioned in the Quran, so many meanings.

00:03:53--> 00:04:03

But when we read the poor and we find that Allah Almighty or there's us to remember him

00:04:05--> 00:04:26

and this is found in unmas or an where Allah says yeah, you're Latina Amman of Quran law ha, the Quran caffee Oh, what's up, boo boo Croton wa salam. O you who believe. remember Allah with much remembrance and exalt Him morning and afternoon.

00:04:27--> 00:04:37

The biggest problem with people nowadays whether Muslims or non Muslims, that they do not acknowledge a massive agenda.

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

We're a one man show.

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

I'm invincible. I'm strong. I'm independent. I don't need anyone. I have wealth. I have health. I have everything. I didn't see this gentleman sitting next to me. So now I'm going to make life difficult for you.

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

May Allah azza wa jal grant him a reward. Imagine that every single word that comes from my mouth, he's getting similar credit for it at the sight of Allah.

00:05:11--> 00:05:22

And this is the beautiful role of liquor, that whenever you convey it, you get the same reward. Whenever you share the video, you get the same reward.

00:05:23--> 00:06:22

Vicar, we are negligent, we are ignorant, because we don't remember a lot until we need something from him. So, if I'm in a business, I don't need a law. When the business is going bad, I need the law or Allah pay off my debts or Allah make my merchandise go quickly or Allah guide my son or Allah guide my wife or wives depending Oh Allah azza wa jal do this for me do that. This is when we need a lot. And this is not a true Muslim. A true believer needs a lot 24 seven with every breath he takes with every step he makes, because he knows Allah azzawajal is giving him the means to survive and to live. Imagine if Allah azza wa jal deprives us from the blessing of sight, and you cannot see

00:06:23--> 00:06:41

the blessing of hearing and that you cannot hear. It's all a test from Allah azza wa jal. This doesn't make you an inferior person or a better person. It's a test and allies testing you and the period of the test is your life span on this earth.

00:06:43--> 00:06:46

The Prophet tells us and highlights to us

00:06:47--> 00:07:28

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when when ever you hear his name, offer salutation because this is one of the best Vicar the best remembrance of Allah who can do Allahumma salli wa salam ala nabina Muhammad, what does he say? The Prophet says Allah salatu salam, whenever you fail, to pray night prayer, whenever whenever you are stingy, from spending money in the cause of alarm. Whenever you are afraid of meeting the enemy of Allah in the battlefield, then you should remember a lot a lot.

00:07:30--> 00:07:42

If you fail in these three categories, night prayer, Jihad and spending in the cause of Allah your only alternative is to remember Allah azza wa jal a lot

00:07:44--> 00:08:03

also, and then came to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam saying oh prophet of a law. The rules and regulations of Islam are so plenty I am unable to remember them all. So tell me something that I should abide by.

00:08:04--> 00:08:16

Tell me something that I should hold on to. The Prophet said Allah His Salatu was Salam. Let your tongue be moist with the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal

00:08:19--> 00:08:34

how are we when we remember our lawn? If I'm walking from this place to my car? What will go in my mind what will be recited by my tongue? Is it the last song of Justin Bieber?

00:08:36--> 00:08:39

Is it any Swahili local song?

00:08:40--> 00:09:01

Is it a joke that I remembered and I heard a while ago? Or is it subpanel la? And hamdulillah Allahu Akbar La ilaha illallah wa la la La quwata illa Billah. No one on earth can say anything better than these five sentences. The Prophet said that is awesome. It's okay with either one you begin.

00:09:03--> 00:09:06

But how many times do we do this?

00:09:07--> 00:09:12

There are plenty and so many benefits of Vicar.

00:09:14--> 00:09:19

But I'll save it to the workshop in sha Allah, you will find it advertised

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

at the bottom of the screen.

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

One of them

00:09:25--> 00:09:32

the means of victory. When you do it, you will be successful in this life and the hereafter.

00:09:33--> 00:10:00

And this is a promise from Allah azza wa jal. When you remember Allah azza wa jal and you often make Vicar, Allah will grant you success in this life, without any doubt. And in the Hereafter, Allah azza wa jal says, and remember Allah often that you may succeed. This is a promise from Allah. This is a promise from

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

If you are on the job,

00:10:02--> 00:10:17

if you are at your home, when you enter the house and your children are fighting, make thicker. We often have the tendency when one of our children makes a mistake or an error, we curse them.

00:10:18--> 00:10:19

We swear at them.

00:10:20--> 00:10:32

Instead of saying, may Allah guide you, may Allah azza wa jal rectify your affairs give them good Dara no shavon overtakes us.

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

When you make Vicar,

00:10:37--> 00:11:34

Allah azza wa jal will remember you not that Allah forgets or altavilla Allah does not forget to think. So how does Allah remember me? The Allah says in the Quran, physical Rooney as Coco, so remember me and I will remember you in the sense that Allah would preserve us, this is one means of Allah remembering us, he will protect us. And also he will actually mention us among Allah, Allah Allah among His angels. Now, imagine this when you remember Allah Allah remembers you by name, obey minicab. May Allah be pleased with him, one of the great companions, one of the for whom Allah azza wa jal, or the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to order the Muslims to learn the Quran from

00:11:35--> 00:11:42

imagine four companions, the prophet ordered us to learn the Quran from one of them is obey even account.

00:11:44--> 00:11:52

The Prophet came to him and said, Allah ordered me to teach you a surah of the Quran, obey broken,

00:11:53--> 00:12:01

weeping and crying. He said, Allah mentioned me my name. And the Prophet said yes.

00:12:03--> 00:12:40

He, how would you feel that when you make the case that Allah is mentioning you by name? What greater honor could there be? We send letters and we said, we sent invoice, we send people, to the president to the prime minister to the king to the dignitaries so that they can assign an appointment for us to sit and talk with them. Okay, you have an open appointment with Allah azzawajal only, if you remember him subhanho wa Taala.

00:12:41--> 00:12:44

The Prophet said la salatu salam, whenever you pass by

00:12:46--> 00:13:17

the gardens of Paradise, then graze in it go and eat like the cattle do in a form. So they said what are the gardens of Paradise, real Dolgin? The prophecy that is the circles of victory. We are at the moment in one of the circles of victory Plaza Virgil is mentioning us with the angels check. Do you know the unseen? No, but I know the prophets had de la salatu salam.

00:13:18--> 00:13:31

So you imagine this now when you're listening to this, the prophet said is awesome. Any people who would sit, remembering Allah azza wa jal, the angels will surround them.

00:13:32--> 00:13:55

The angels are surrounding us at the moment and mercy from Allah azza wa jal would be bestowed upon them. And that tranquility this Akina will descend upon them, you will feel that you have no obligations. There is no lecture after my lecture. shabu sama can wait until

00:13:57--> 00:14:15

we have no problem because we are in a modulus of we remembering Allah azza wa jal and the fourth characteristic, Allah will mentioned them with those above. Allah mentions us be in Azerbaijan.

00:14:16--> 00:14:31

One of the benefits of victory, it's the best physical deeds, one can offer. vigorous physical By the way, when you mentioned Allah with your heart alone, this is not sufficient.

00:14:32--> 00:14:41

And this is extremely and crucially important for you to know. I've seen 1000s of Muslims. When they pray,

00:14:42--> 00:14:52

their lick their lips are sealed, and they recite the facts in their heart. So Panama vim, Allah Akbar, they don't move their lips. It's like this.

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

Their prayer is invalid.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Should I repeat there?

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

Prayer is invalid. I've looked everywhere in all the books I could find and lay my hands on to find one single scholar

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

saying that when you recite the fact you have with your lips sealed it's accepted. None of them did this, your Vicar if you do not move your lips, if you do not move your tongue, not necessarily Audible,

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

Audible, Oussama audible.

00:15:31--> 00:15:49

My English is not that good. So don't pay attention. You have to move your lips, otherwise Allah will not accept it. So it is physical. And this is why monogamy Jebel may Allah be pleased with him said is that

00:15:50--> 00:16:26

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam last statement that I learned from him, when he was asked which among the deeds are best, which among the deeds are best to Allah azza wa jal? Is it jihad. Is it How much is it prayer? Is it charity? The Prophet said in this Hadith, that when I heard it from the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the prophet said, to die, while your tongue is moist, with the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal.

00:16:27--> 00:16:33

I remember calling shifting bass about 30 years ago on the phone

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

and he had two phones in front of him. I used to call him every single day to ask questions he doesn't know me.

00:16:41--> 00:16:46

And at the time, we did not have any mobile phones, not even pagers.

00:16:47--> 00:17:10

So while his assistant picked my phone and put me on hold, I can hear the sheriff answering the other caller. And when he concluded the phone call, by the time he handed him my headset to talk to me, I will I used every single time I hear this yes of hanomag

00:17:13--> 00:17:16

until he got the phone, then he asked my question

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

pious people, righteous people, people of knowledge, always remember Allah 24 seven. They live on it, and they die on it.

00:17:30--> 00:17:32

remembering Allah azza wa jal

00:17:34--> 00:17:38

is extremely important for the tranquility of the heart.

00:17:40--> 00:17:43

Rarely, you may find a true believer in

00:17:44--> 00:18:08

being depressed, mental issues or being OCD, obsessive compulsive disorder patient, yet among the Muslims, we found plenty we find plenty. Why? Because they do not remember Allah azza wa jal. Their hearts are not filled with the level of alarms that which we may say it by the tongue but the heart is

00:18:09--> 00:18:16

this attached to that Allah the Almighty says in the Quran, our hearts

00:18:17--> 00:19:02

I am depressed. I'm so sad. I'm worried about my provisions. I quit my job. And now I'm afraid that I may have to beg for money for myself, for my children for my wife. I say if you believe in Allah, if you remember Allah, this cleanses your heart and gives you tranquillity. A brother sent me a question just a while ago, he said, as you've directed me, I resigned from my job, immediate effect, because I was working in Cuba in Harlem. But now I get these whispers that my children will starve. My wife may suffer and I may not be able to pay the rent. So is it permissible for me to withdraw my resignation? I said,

00:19:03--> 00:19:07

We are ignorant, because we do not remember Allah.

00:19:09--> 00:19:29

does Allah provide for us? Yes or no? After lunch, I know that you're asleep. I'm not gonna ask you to stand up. We all have knee problems and back problems and Allah knows, but at least reciprocate? does Allah provide for us? There's no doubt in that. Just to give you a glimpse, I have

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

a university degree.

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

So I can work with that in sha Allah and get a job. What does the animals in the parks where people go and watch? Have? What kind of degree does Allah provide for them, to the animals in the jungles, for the birds and the skies, for the fish and sea creatures in the oceans for the trillions of insects on earth?

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

Allah provides for each and every one of them. Don't you feel Allah? Do you doubt that Allah can provide for you?

00:20:09--> 00:20:24

Then you have a problem. This is why you have depression. This is why you don't have full trust in Allah azza wa jal because you have a problem. If you remember Allah azzawajal you are protected, protected with the game.

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

You're

00:20:29--> 00:20:41

in an ocean that is endless, that has no coast that is filled with tribulations and calamities and tests. This life is like such an ocean.

00:20:42--> 00:20:45

How can I survive? The boat is going down?

00:20:46--> 00:21:13

How can I survive? This is my life raft. deck here is what will take me to the shores of safety. It saves us from shavon It saves us from being heedless and neglectful. It saves us from hypocrisy. As for saving us from shavon the Prophet told us Allahu Salatu was Salam

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

about

00:21:17--> 00:21:27

a list of instructions. Eliza was an ordered Yemenis Zakaria to deliver to the sons of Israel.

00:21:28--> 00:21:36

So among them he said, a law ordered me to ordered you to order you to remember a lot a lot.

00:21:38--> 00:21:50

make it thicker, but make that a lot. Why he says the symbol cute of this is like a man running away from an enemy pursuing him. And

00:21:52--> 00:22:16

they are catching fast to him. And all of a sudden he sees a fortress. So he gets into the fortress and locks the doors and he saves himself from the enemy. Likewise, remembering Allah azza wa jal protects you saves you from the devil from Satan from Lucifer from shavon. He cannot come to you.

00:22:17--> 00:22:49

It is your life raft. From negligence from being heedless. Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, and remember your Lord. So this is victory within yourself in humility, and in fear without being a parent or loud in speech. Remember him in the morning and in the evening and do not be among the heatless. Those who do not remember Allah are among the heatless.

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

And, above all, it's your life raft from being a hypocrite, Who among you can safely raise his hand and say, I am not a hypocrite.

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

Wow, only one misuses

00:23:10--> 00:23:38

to you're in great danger. Those who have risen their hands you are in great danger. A true believer feels hypocrisy. Omar, may Allah be pleased with him. He used to go to heaven a man may Allah be pleased with the man with his father and he says I beg you. I asked you by Allah. Am I one of the people whom the Prophet has sung name to you among the hypocrites? He said no, but I will never ever clean anyone's reputation after you. You're the last one.

00:23:39--> 00:23:57

We all feel being hypocrite. And we must because this fear is the fuel that drives us to agenda. If I don't have this fear, and I might I put my gears on the fifth gear and I cruise down the highway, then I have a problem.

00:23:58--> 00:24:10

Then I may be a full fledged hypocrite. Listen to the characteristics of hypocrites mentioned in the Quran Chapter number four Surah Nisa, Allah azza wa jal says,

00:24:12--> 00:24:28

indeed, the hypocrites think to deceive a lot but he the Almighty is deceiving them. When they stand for prayer, they stand lazy, not lazy, lazy only with laziness.

00:24:29--> 00:24:37

When we stand to prayer, how do we stand when we wake up in handy let us go faster. Is it the way or

00:24:39--> 00:24:56

what's wrong with a man prayed a long fast today? Imagine it splitted into two as Doesn't he feel a lot to Panama. Is this the way we should post to go to prayer? The soldier says

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

and they stand ladies

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

really showing themselves to the people they're showing off. When they're praying home they pray like from zero to 60 in 2.5 seconds the new Bugatti

00:25:12--> 00:25:19

but when they pray in the masjid Masha Allah La quwata illa Billah Toyota Corolla from zero to 100, half an hour.

00:25:21--> 00:25:36

There's something wrong in our prayer we don't remember Allah and listen to the last characteristic of the hypocrites. Allah azza wa jal says, and not remembering a law except a little.

00:25:37--> 00:26:06

And this is how we remember. When do we remember I asked one of the brothers, when was the last time you said a stop for Allah said a couple of days ago, I sent and I said this stuff for Allah. How was the Prophet alayhi salatu salam in seeking Allah forgiveness. He says, Oh people seek Allah's forgiveness and repent to him, for I seek Allah's forgiveness and I repent to him per day more than 100 times.

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

And even Ahmed says we used to count

00:26:11--> 00:26:28

the prophet in one setting in one gathering, seeking almost forgiveness, repenting to him more than 70 times. So what comes out of our mouths, when we are in gatherings, Cabernet Malik, may Allah have mercy on his soul.

00:26:29--> 00:26:46

He's one of the great poets of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and one of the three who were left behind in the Battle of the book, he says, Whoever remembers Allah, plenty and a lot. He will not be among the hypocrites.

00:26:47--> 00:26:50

Allah azza wa jal says,

00:26:51--> 00:26:56

and tells us about one of the greatest virtues of Vicar.

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

What's the conference theme?

00:27:02--> 00:27:03

Nobody knows.

00:27:04--> 00:27:08

The path to Jenna. Listen to what Allah says.

00:27:10--> 00:27:28

And the men who remember Allah often and the women who do so for them, Allah has prepared forgiveness and the great reward. When you remember Allah azza wa jal you go to Jenna, why are you here? The food is good chef.

00:27:29--> 00:27:52

Okay, but see Cecilia, who wastes a holiday coming to a conference, you can do something else, but you come here for a purpose. You live for a purpose. You avoid a lot of harm for a purpose you agenda. We all want gender, and this is the only way to gender to make Vicar.

00:27:53--> 00:27:59

One says chef beautiful speech duckula hair, but what is the care

00:28:01--> 00:28:06

This requires another workshop, but we will give it to you for free inshallah today,

00:28:08--> 00:28:15

Vicar, as stated has a number of meanings. And call it a of may Allah have mercy on his soul.

00:28:16--> 00:29:15

coating and how to be he said, Vicar has 16 meanings. It can be referring to obedience, the remembrance of the tongue, the remembrance of the heart, it is the information, it is preservation and protection. It is greatness, it is honor, it is goodness, it is Revelation it is or an IT IS the Old Testament or the Torah, it is the preserved tablet it is contemplation it is prayers It can also mean one single prayer. And among there are a list of meanings on in the Quran. However, scholars say when we say Vicar, this has two main meanings. The first one a lot of us do not know. And that is Vicar is anything that draws you closer to Allah, whether actions, prayer fasting, whether

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

rhetorics and things that we say to pantalon hamdulillah

00:29:21--> 00:29:37

reciting the Quran, or whether it is contemplation by the heart, if I just sit by the ocean side, and look at the ocean. Nobody's swimming, nobody's in his bathing suits. I'm in the private area. Don't get me wrong to share.

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

No, it's just the water endless. And I think of the teachers inside. I think of Allah azza wa jal. Yeah, okay, when a leaf of a tree falls, it's written in Allen's book. It doesn't rotate. It doesn't spiral fold down, except with Allah's knowledge.

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

Every single inch, when a grain of dust or sand comes, blowing through the wind among those, each and every one of them, this kind of contemplation when you think of it, it blows your mind away. Yet it is part of the vicar.

00:30:21--> 00:30:28

The second type, which we all know, is the vicar of the tongue. These are specific

00:30:29--> 00:30:43

as car, praising of Allah, glorifying Allah things that we say with our tongues at specific times in a specific situation at a specific location. And this is

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

where is the MC the mentally

00:30:50--> 00:30:54

Yeah, I'm a program manager. How much time do I have left the Hey

00:30:58--> 00:30:59

10 minutes

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

Yeah, okay, however, half an hour inshallah because they delayed me an hour and 15 minutes, so I'm getting entitled for compensation. I was sitting there.

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

And we have all night long.

00:31:13--> 00:31:21

Vacation Vicar, brothers and sisters are made of two types, restricted, specific, and general.

00:31:22--> 00:32:18

The restricted type is the one that the Prophet is taught us to say. This restricted type you cannot add nor delete. So we know that after salaat, we have to say Subhana, Allah 33 Alhamdulillah 33 Allahu Akbar 33. And the 100th we say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Krishna, this is prescribed as it is, you have to say it, not a single one extra, sometimes we say, give five or 10 more. It's extra, it's better when you have guests to feed them more than less. No, it's not like this. Also, of course, there are other videos after salaat we can do 25 of each we can do 10 without chicken, of each, and so on.

00:32:19--> 00:32:23

Likewise, the vicar we do after salad.

00:32:24--> 00:32:48

So this is restricted, we are told to do 100 times larger economic calculation per day, whoever does this he gets 100 degrees left in paradise 100 cents, or he raised 100 good deeds registered and this would act as a protection from Him and for Him until it's night time. So it is restricted in a way and it's generally another way.

00:32:49--> 00:32:57

The second type is the general Vicar. So the Prophet says says hello handy, in one Hadith says how many times

00:33:01--> 00:33:03

so can allow the how many times

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

100 times what's the result? Allah would forgive all of your previous sins, and no one can do better than you except someone who did exactly that and added to it added to it has two meanings either added other good deeds or added more than 100 made it 501,000 whatever. So this is restricted in 100 but also applicable that you can add to it as you wish.

00:33:34--> 00:33:35

Now the general

00:33:37--> 00:33:41

this Vicar You must not restricted

00:33:42--> 00:34:06

to a certain time situation or a place you can say it whenever you want. For example, offering salutation to the Prophet Allah so seldom can we offer sanitation to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam as much as we can as much as we want yes 1000 times no problem. But if you come and restrict,

00:34:07--> 00:34:08

they will edit this

00:34:09--> 00:34:09

they will

00:34:11--> 00:34:15

so if they come if you come and

00:34:16--> 00:34:20

restrict it to something that is not part of the sooner

00:34:21--> 00:34:22

this becomes a bit

00:34:24--> 00:34:34

richer to offer slot on the profit or some bigger your hobby guys everything is a bit a bit haram haram Haram. Yeah, let's logic

00:34:35--> 00:34:49

our hobby. I'm not as you claim I follow Quran and Sunnah with understanding of the seller logic. What's the rolling offering solid ation of the Prophet ashram? Highly recommended. If I go to the bathroom and I say Bismillah Allahu

00:34:50--> 00:34:53

Akbar if Allahumma salli wa sallam Allah Muhammad.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

What are you doing? offering sanitation? No, this is not good. Why?

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

Did a second look at your hobby.

00:35:03--> 00:35:15

So you have to not restrict it. Even romanello a piece with him once heard the man sneeze. And then I said al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah.

00:35:17--> 00:35:57

And he said, I, when I sneeze, say Alhamdulillah This is how the Prophet taught us that Islam, but not to say Allahumma salli wa sallam Imam, this is not the place. And this is what will bring us to the comparison between what people are doing today, and how they're supposed to be the Muslims as usual. There are two extremes and a middle path may Allah make me and all of you among the middle path, the path of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, do you know better than him? Definitely not. The majority of Muslims do not remember a lot.

00:35:58--> 00:36:05

And if they do, they remember Allah by the tongue, not by the heart. And this is why after salat, which is

00:36:11--> 00:36:12

how much should I do? Who cares?

00:36:14--> 00:36:26

They answer the mobiles. They text and this handler handler got it. They don't know what they say. And not even that. Some of the brothers after Salah it's a habit, they raise their hands and make dua

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

and they likewise,

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

some clap. What are you doing? This is this is part of the vicar shift. You don't know. And they clap.

00:36:38--> 00:37:05

panela What kind of decrease this eviction with tempo? No, there is nothing as such, but their heart is not there. It's by the tongue. So some people do not remember a lot of them. And when they do, they do not feel that they are remembering Allah. On the far extreme to that. You find people remembering Allah azza wa jal, but with innovation,

00:37:06--> 00:37:26

not part of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam way. So you find some people after finishing the prayer, with prayer beads in the next next, rounded like six or seven times, so they take 123 483 sheets to the end of the whole. What are you doing to making liquor?

00:37:28--> 00:37:30

You hear like Bs,

00:37:31--> 00:37:34

and this Allah La la la la la la la.

00:37:35--> 00:37:41

I had the GMC 1994 it used to remember a lot like this. When you turn it on, is

00:37:42--> 00:38:11

it big engine is a big Vicar of Allah. I had to sell it though. I bought someone that doesn't. Anyhow, what are you doing some of them? And I was watching this on one of the news channels, about Islam in Turkey. And they took us to a city and they were like a dozen people swirling, going round and round and doing this. And what is this system making Vicar

00:38:13--> 00:38:20

and I was waiting for the moment for their takeoff. Because the way they're rotating, it appeared like a helicopter going up.

00:38:22--> 00:38:31

They didn't they failed to take off and hamdulillah What is this? This is declared their heart is connected to Allah will lie in their hearts are connected to one.

00:38:32--> 00:38:44

Do you know better than the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, some of the brothers say I have this special prayer a teacher Nia lg lania an area and Aki where is it in the Quran, the Sunnah

00:38:45--> 00:38:58

is old fashioned, we have updated 2017 prayers, a stone for Lahore to really you will not intelligence. Unless you follow the footsteps of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, You're no better.

00:38:59--> 00:39:17

So there are so many things that has to be adhered to and that is never attempt to do any type of Vicar or any type of worship, unless you have proof from the Quran and the Sunnah. And this is why, and this is not our topic, but

00:39:20--> 00:39:24

let me stick with my topic. What's the relationship between Victor and Dora?

00:39:26--> 00:40:00

Dora is invoking Allah azza wa jal and it is part of the general meaning of victory. So you remember the general meaning of victory. We said that it is any type of worship that draws you closer to Allah, prayer fasting, doing a good reciting the Quran, etc. Victory sport, Dora is part of it. But it is also the divided into two types. There is Dora of praising along the

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

Prophet said Allah His Salatu was Salam

00:40:03--> 00:40:15

of Bala, Vicar. The best of Vicar is La ilaha illa Allah. So this is clear, Vicar La ilaha illa Allah goes side by side. But then he says Word of God do

00:40:17--> 00:40:29

hamdulillah and the best of Dora is praising Allah, praising Allah is also part of Vicar. What is the meaning of the noon? Anyone?

00:40:31--> 00:40:33

Does anyone know? What is the noon?

00:40:37--> 00:40:38

Then known? Are

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

you kidding me? It's mentioned in the Quran.

00:40:44--> 00:40:56

Jonas, no matter, the prophet of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him who was swallowed by the whale, and stayed in his belly. What was his

00:40:59--> 00:41:32

era and subhanak in a cocoon, tahmina body mean? Now we know that do our means to ask for something. What was he asking for? In the doula? There's no asking. The Prophet described this in the Hadith. No one says this dua, except Allah would answer him. La ilaha illa Anta subhanak there is no god worthy of being worshipped except you. Praise be to you glorified, be you. I admit I was among the wrongdoers. What is the Dora

00:41:33--> 00:42:13

the scholars say that this is of praising glorification of Allah azzawajal The second type of Dora is the daughter of requests and demand or Allah forgive me or Allah provide for me or Allah pay off my debts Allah guide my children are Allah guide, my nagging wife, Oh Allah do this and do that. So you are asking Allah azza wa jal for something specific. So they are interlinked. When you ask Allah azzawajal to grant you something, you are praising Allah because no one can afford to give you this what you're asking except him Subhanahu wa Tada.

00:42:14--> 00:42:37

And there are so many verses of the Quran. And there are a lot of etiquettes when we make dua that a lot of us are not following. We fail to follow the advocates of the and this is why we don't get our answered. Imagine someone in the highest level of

00:42:39--> 00:42:40

an emperor,

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

a king

00:42:43--> 00:42:46

who has everything or his wife.

00:42:47--> 00:42:59

What would they ask for? Asya, one of the four perfect women of Jenna, and only four women were perfected, as a prophet said as you said, I'm Asya

00:43:00--> 00:43:17

been to Zaha Hadid deja fathima and million, only four. What was the position of ASEAN? When she sought dua to Allah azza wa jal or Allah build me a house next to you in Jenna?

00:43:18--> 00:43:26

Who does this? Oh Allah grant me a better model of a car. Or a better model of a wife.

00:43:27--> 00:43:41

Or a better model of her husband. This guy is stinks. He doesn't shower. He doesn't brush his teeth. He smokes his belly is like two kilos in front of him. No, this is not a topic. What do you ask? When you ask a lot of surgeon?

00:43:42--> 00:43:51

Do you ask for Jenna wholeheartedly, but you were working hard on and you bribe and you steal and you lie and you back by and you cheat?

00:43:53--> 00:44:13

What generally schmuck what gender Are you asking for? You have to rectify your work. You have to rectify your act. You have to shape up. If you want to enter gender, there are many etiquettes I'll I don't have time for them. But I just list them in a nutshell.

00:44:14--> 00:44:59

Only supplicate to Allah glorify Allah and praise Him always before you make do I say Alhamdulillah Hamden, Catherine, Pavan, Mubarak, Kofi. Do as much as you can to compliment the larger version to praise him that he's the rich and you the poor that he's there as ease and you're the humilated one that he's a strong and you are the weak one. Praise Allah Jorgen offer salutation to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, your dua is blocked. It will not reach Allah if you do not offer salatu salam on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, preferably face the Qibla Raise your hands and this is only in general. Not in specifics, not after salaat in general.

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

When it's time now I want to make dua, I raise my hands and make sure there's no problem. In fact, repeated three times, Think positive and this requires a full lecture.

00:45:13--> 00:45:23

People think that he made or that Allah facilitate a new job for you. No, no, no, no. Why is whenever I make dua, Allah doesn't make it happen.

00:45:25--> 00:45:34

Seriously, I know a lot of Muslims like this, make dua that Allah grant you a good spouse. I've tried a lot before. This is,

00:45:36--> 00:46:03

this is thinking negative of Allah. Allah says, Allah in the abundance of dB, I am, wherever my slave thinks of me. You think good of Allah, you will find good, you think negative of Allah as origin you will get the worst thing you ever dreamt of. So you have to think positively about Allah. If I have an illness in my arm and I want to make Dora or I want to make Rokia. Let's give it a try.

00:46:04--> 00:46:45

Know when my child is sick, I recite Fatiha wholeheartedly, he will pass this endless and he will stand in Sharla cured not because I have special powers. I trust Allah Xhosa. I have a Lord that answers and I think positive of him. You have to have your heart there. When you make do not make him do and you're watching the TV show no one is losing hamdulillah No, you have to make dua and your heart is attending your food and drink has to be valid, your income has to be valid. If your income is from haram make dua from here till

00:46:46--> 00:46:52

after this lecture, it will not be accepted. And then you must not hate them.

00:46:54--> 00:47:13

Share I made to Allah did not answer me yesterday how long you've been making Russia for the past two hours. Okay, profit, are you a prophet of Allah was tested by an illness that made him lose everything. And the recovery came after 18 years.

00:47:14--> 00:47:34

So you're saying a couple of hours in law did not answer you. You have to wait because this is a form of your submissiveness to Allah, that you make dua and you are hopeful. If it comes, this is Grace of Allah. If it doesn't, it's from my sins and you have to be

00:47:35--> 00:47:53

silent and come when you make a lot of the Muslims in Harlem. May Allah grant you all unaccepted aroma and Hajj. And I mean, when you go to Mecca to tawaf, you find people in groups Allahumma, shouting their heads off. Yaki Allah is not deaf.

00:47:54--> 00:48:19

This is a Hadith, the prophet said, or people take it easy for you are not calling someone who's deaf or far away by Allah, you're calling someone who is close, and all hearing subhanho wa Taala and all responding. So don't raise your voice. When you supplicate to Allah azza wa jal. And finally, no, this is serious. Finally,

00:48:20--> 00:49:15

you try your level best that when you make dua, that you make it in times of ease. When do we usually make dua, in times of hardship, in poverty, in illness in calamities, now, everything is fine Alhamdulillah we don't make dua Allah, when you make dua, at times of ease, when you remember a lot of times of ease, Allah will remember you at times of difficulties, then we have the times of response. When do we make sure that Allah would respond to us, and this is about 15 points, but you have Osama is getting his guns ready to shoot me. So I ended up here and I asked Allah zosia and I pray to Allah azza wa jal that he makes me and you among, among those who remember Allah often and

00:49:15--> 00:49:23

Allah azza wa jal knows best so Lahore shalom Ababa Abdi he was really gonna be no Mohammed was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
