it is a less night indeed, that a lot of zoa jen has favored me to be among you in this lesson
for all praise be to Allah azza wa jal who facilitated it, because with our own powers and this would not have been possible.
Our topic is how to reach the peak of a man
a man is very essential.
And when we talk about a man, we don't mean that it is the six pillars of Eman mentioned in the hadith of gibreel is built upon him mature, although we talk about the man in general
the Eman that increases and decreases. And we will get into this
point because there are sects and cults in Islam.
claiming to be from Islam, that claim that a man does not increase nor decrease. That's the whole package deal.
But we, when we look at ourselves, we see our email, fluctuating going up and going down. Some days you wake up in the morning, and you feel that I can make a difference in this whole world.
And sometimes, we wake up in the morning, doubting are we hypocrites.
We look at our prayers. Sometimes we are so happy. If someone gives us a million dinar, we would not take it in exchange for the happiness we find in our souls, but one prayer, and sometimes we pray for days without end. And we don't think any taste of this. So what is happening?
What is happening is that we are in this life to be tested.
Allah says in the beginning of
do people think that they will be left alone to say and claim we believe our demand is high without them being tested. This is not the fact they will be tested and
know those who are saying the truth through their claims and those who are liars. Therefore, it is
extremely essential to work hard on our a man. Now, to work hard on our event does not mean at all that we have to do something out of the ordinary, on the contrary is now is how to build your email is not is based on how to increase your email.
And this demand increase and decrease Yes, yes. And there is no doubt among assume that you will
who differ, the average
both are opposite sides. Totally. How is that? More Jia? Say that no matter what sins you do?
Your Email is intact. And those sinners those fornicators those who consume intoxicants and deal with the river and do nice things. Their email is equal to the man of Abu Bakr and Omar.
How is that? They say because he man is a package deal. It's full. It's either there or it is not there. And it cannot be not there. Unless you commit she can
do whatever you want. I remember about 15 years ago, I saw a program on Dubai TV
And he was communicating with the youth.
And he was listening to what they had to confess. Some of them were saying, I'm sinful, I have a girlfriend. Another one is saying, I have a boyfriend. And the third one says, I don't pray on time. The fourth says, Well, I have disobeyed my parents, and we're going to help. And then he comments. All what you have said, is rubbish. And I don't like to hear this.
quite big. I wish that they got knowledge metric by the length and the
size of the beam, I would have been a great scholar of Islam. Anyhow. So he said, Listen,
either you are not sinful.
And allow me to to Chennai
or you are sinful.
And Allah would admit you to gender with his forgiveness. And if you have sins and good deeds, they're equal, Allah will admit you to gender with the decision of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, so do whatever you want.
If you open the door, and tell the people that whether you're sinful or righteous, you will interject now what are we doing in the machines? My friends? It's a Saturday night, was it Friday, Friday night, we should go to a disk attack overnight,
you know, get wasted. And then
this is the whole concept of
now this is
on the other extreme, there is the average. And how are you saying if you make any major senior cover?
So if you live your Catholic history, you're Catholic, forever in Hell
give us a chance. So no chance at all. Why? And they give you quotes from the Quran, which they misunderstood. And they neglect the rest of the code and which they do not want to understand. So they're fixed. So why are you doing this is because the man is a bulk? If you commit a major sin, this means the holy man is not there in Europe.
What does ILA follow the same footsteps in the hereafter nothing to do in the dunya they say you are in a place between the two.
But then over there, you will have forever so it's the same conclusion should never
see this is the benefit of being a follower of
everybody claims nowadays.
Who are they so that we can travel to other cinema? They are anyone in this world who follow the for
the Sunnah with the understanding of the three favorite and bless generations of Islam. So you don't understand the Quran because it looks nice. I think this is the interpretation of the IRA. How do you know Has anyone from the previous previous sessions rushes with assessor ever said this? No, but I think it's good. You think?
So, through this, we follow the Quran and the Sunnah with the understanding of the companions, generation, one, capillary generation to the Tampere, tavini generation number three, why do we follow them? Because the Prophet himself
told us that the best of generations ever to pass on this earth, the best of generations are my generation and the generation that follows as the generation that
he told us this. So someone comes after 1000 years and says, well, it I think there has been a mistake. Why say to vote is for us or is for America is for only mildly disagree. Let's add one
and make a call even.
This is not mentioned in the Quran, how many eyes so if
you are deviant you are going to have because you've changed the religion of Amazonia so what does Gemma think and believe about a man they say it increases and decreases
visits, increases with good deeds and decreases with says, Can you give us examples of I mentioned so many phrases
but I'll give you what
Whenever a soda is revealed, there are among the hypocrites those who say what's your view has this increase faith. As for those who believe it has increased them in faith, while they are rejoicing, the believers, sutras of the Quran, increase their faith. And the man. Also, the prophet said that he saw in the window
that belief for a man is 70 plus branches, the highest of these branches of
And the lowest is removing harmful objects from people's way. And bashfulness or shyness is a branch of email. What does it mean? The highest the lowest means that there are categories of the man branches. And if you follow little dirty man, his little if you follow all your Eman is at its peak,
and you are at the fullest.
And also the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam told us that he man warrior wears off,
man is worn off, it disappears, like
a dress or a piece of cloth that loses color that wears off. You know, when you have a colored cloth, and you wash it frequently,
the color fades out. So a man in your heart has the same problem. So what do you do? The Prophet alayhi salatu salam says, Allah to renew email in your hearts.
And we have a problem as such, because we work hard on our bank accounts.
A lot to increase your bank account, we work hard on our heads and bodies.
To increase the size of your biceps, and the amount of bench press you can
work out we have problem with the number of wives as a lot to increase your wives and you get back from your wife. Don't ask Allah for that.
It was reported that the man was calling for a friend of his was not mad at me and
my friend, so and so a righteous wife, and he got a punch from his wife
says I know what your intention is. You know that there's an angel saying and for us when
you ask. Sometimes wives are likely sometimes not all the time.
A word of advice. Don't ever mention anything. For a stranger for a Catholic above marrying a second, or even a first just to be safe. So ask a lot to renew email in your heart. This is one of the ways of increasing your email. The Companions themselves used to sit with one another. They are pleased with the use of his companions to come let us increase an email if it was rude. He used to say the same thing he used to often ask about in his work or a lot increase in my email, and in my knowledge. So you're asking about for this? Now see, do we do this? No, because we take our email for granted. We think that we have inherited it, and nothing can divert us from our event. While the
facts show that so many Muslims are falling into how long they're losing their email, and a small percentage of them are abandoning the sample together. Those atheists those very small minority, but it is there. So do not take this for granted because it is scale.
It has a face. When you eat honey, you find the sweetness of honey, the Prophet cinetic Salatu was Salam. He has tasted the sweetness of a man who accepts and who is satisfied with Allah as being his Lord with Islam as being his religion with Mohammed
as being a prophet, and messenger narrated by Muslims. So if you have this satisfaction, this is translated into a sweetness of the man How do I have it?
By your conviction? You don't have any doubts. Those who have doubts will never ever find the taste
Have a man. So if
you're not sure, you'll find that same job when the agents come to you, and with a big stick in their hand turn you into a pile of sand. Who's your Lord? I don't know. People said, it's a lie. I said, What's your religion? I don't know. Who's your messenger, I don't know. But those who are satisfied with the hit that they answered, and then they say, Mr.
Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, then they will get almost forgiveness for the sins and they will find the sweetness of a man in their heart.
However, the sweetness of the land
is not something you can buy. It is not something that you can beg for, or be awarded as a gift. It is something that you have to work hard to achieve. And you have to be blessed by Allah. Some of us work really hard.
Our says boo boo Yama in Sha, Allah. Now Shiva, Allah
faces that are submissive. Some scholars say that this is in terms of the kuffaar.
This is why Rama melodies with him when he passed by an old Jew, who's just about to die. So all he cried, and he said, look at this whole thing. His face is submissive, he works amulet. He works and he gets tired. But then he goes away to help five other scholars say that this is in the those who innovate to make things in religion, which is not what
they work hard. I've seen a video of you've seen this of some of the Muslims now I got them that they made by swearing like a fan
in the restroom, and they're doing it in a way, what are they doing?
They think that they're worshipping Allah right like this, this is what that fits, that is so
you cannot bend or attain it from your own self, you have to be blessed by a man and surgeon to guide you. Because what we are in at the moment is almost guidance. We could have been somewhere else. We could have been following another health or sex or doing harm or innovation
from all the people that we know, to be following the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. So this sweetness of the man is a gift from Allah azza wa jal, some of the scholars say, after feeling and tasting it, he says, Well lucky, if the king's and the sons of Kings knew the pleasure we are in, they would have fought us fight with the source.
They would not let us enjoy it, they want to take it away from us. And some say how this happens when we pass by and drive by big mansions and palaces, and see people right driving fancy cars, some of us may feel heartbroken. You wish I had this, and some of us would think and convey his gratitude to all of us in love.
These people do not even know why they cannot taste the beauty of brain culture at 330, or quarter to four or four o'clock who would wake up at this time. Only those who have tasted the sweetness of the man, the restaurant will continue to sneak. And the first way we first month, this is the second year, the sleeping
to go to gender? Yes. First of all, maybe before the profit maybe after? How will you do this? You're not working hard, I have lost a lot. So
this is problematic. Now, in order to attain and achieve the peak of the man, you have to work your way from down to up. And there are so many ways.
And by the way, the fluctuation of the man is not for you and me only even for the companions. So I hit him a Muslim who says
that a banker met a companion cold handler.
So he said Hello. How are you?
However, said nah humba humba has become a hypocrite. Walker was shocked.
How can you say such a thing in the Companion of the Prophet? He said, when I read the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and he reminds us of Heaven and Hell, we feel like we are in a different world, the moment we need the Prophet, so if we go to our houses, we sit with our wives and children and in our farms, we forget.
Abubakar scratched his head.
In the same way,
there is a problem in your email and my email, let's go and check the doctor who knows the medicine for our hearts. So we go to the professor, and this is a Muslim, is degree of authenticity. And the Prophet said, What brings you here,
and a broker says they're profitable or listen to a hammer. So hungover Do you have is a non profit of a lot. And he repeated the same message
that I have become a hypocrite, because of this edition, this, the prophet said that in
his view, where with your wives, children and businesses, like you are here with me, when I remind you and you are engaged in Likud, by a law, the angels would descend, and would shake hands with you, in broad day light in front of all the people, because you would have reached a level of a man that is second to none. But this is not possible, the prophets, and therefore, oh, camera, Sarah was hour, an hour for remembering a bar for a decade for engaging in this high caliber, this high voltage of a man, but there has to be another sir another hour, where you attain worthy managers, we have to work for your bread, and for your family, you have to sit with them. So, this problem we are
suffering from it is normal, however, we have to do our level best to increase it. So how can we increase our
you remember the first heavy I mentioned, a man is 70 plus branches. So, the logical thing is to attain these 70 plus branches. However, the scholars differ
mentioning them and specifying them because there is not a single heading that says 123 470. So, so they try their level best, first of all, they categorize these branches, into acts of the heart,
acts of the tongue, acts of the body.
So first of all, the acts of the hearts, you want to attain a man they say you have to believe in Allah. And this requires a workshop, not a lecture, what do we mean by belief in Mr. Binney, in the
movie, the Lordship,
of war ship, and the mouse, the defeat of ours Beautiful Names and attributes, and the divisions and their counterparts, the things that go against them to believe in a lie. So agenda also requires you believe in the other five pillars of email, she's to believe in his angels, his books, in the messengers in the destiny, and in the Day of Judgment, and belief in depth judgment includes what
the grave, the beginning, the grave, then the Day of Judgment itself, then the server of the design, the scale, the survival of the street, about the heaven and hell, all of this is beyond imagination, the belief in it increases your demand. When you know that there is a scale that would not let away and and weight of good or bad.
You think twice before you do something bad you think twice before doing before not doing something good because you know that this will come in your scale, on the day of judgment, and so on. Part of the acts of the heart, loving for the sake of Allah hating for the sake of Allah, you have to hate for the sake of Allah. And you have to love for the sake of Allah my brother who comes and prays with me Allah for the sake of Allah, the
Muslim Brotherhood brings and for decades, I hate his actions for the sake of Allah not because he is local or an ex parte. Likewise when I hate the disbelievers not because they have blond and blue eyes, but because their action and belief is covered. If they come to Islam immediately I will love them for the sake of Allah. Also the issue of loving the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, praising him, mentioning him offering sanitation all of these are in the heart, will you love the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, if someone comes? How do you know if someone comes to you and tells you don't do this? So why is it because the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said not to do it. If you have love in your
heart, you immediately implement if you don't have love in your heart.
This gesture itself shows you have a demon. I'm telling you the Prophet says
or I know a shaman says otherwise.
So all of this interprets what your Eman level is. Also, in your heart is sincerity. Why do I pray for the sake of Allah azza wa jal who knows this is in the heart, your sincerity, your repentance, it's in your heart, your fear of Allah hoping it was a luck, as promised us engender your gratitude and sugar. being thankful to unlock your patience your acceptance to unless defeat. My son is sick. How do I act I banged my head in the wall Why me? My neighbor doesn't have any problems like this, I pray for you. I visited once an uncle, he was over 70 years of age he was facing one of these two storey building this is a relative of mine now have mercy on him. So I visited him. So until then be
patient alive. So he said my son, I have no complaints whatsoever. Except that this mystery of the brain in it five times a day for the past 35 or 40 years.
And look how sick I am. While my neighbor has not been a single prayer and he is as strong as a boo.
You have a raise you're 40 years old.
Why? Because there is no sincerity there is no appreciation there is no content.
So many people, when they are fine, their salary comes on time that wife is pleasant and not nagging. Mashallah they're very happy, the minute something changes.
And this shows you that we have a problem in our heart, not in our bank accounts.
Not in our wives, definitely we do. But we do have a problem in the way we consider how Allah is treating us. Allah is so generous with us. If you lose your wallet, how do you feel?
Five, six years ago, the first day I went to break my fast the first day of Ramadan
went out and my wallet is gone.
Without my IDs with my money, but luckily I paid the hotel in advance Otherwise, I would have been in trouble. How do you feel? Well, like
everything came back after one month after the funding, I got
the credit cards, bank accounts martial law and all the minions were saved.
How do you feel if you miss measure of the day you did not break or in horrible shape. How do you feel if you leave in your office and there is a flat tire
which is worse. Now budget is normalized flat budget I can miss for what we will do it is hot in summer and the Blood
is a problem in prioritizing things in how we deal with a lot as well.
Now when it comes there are so many things of the heart that this is not the time to mention it when it comes to the tongue. scholars say that same thing the cavemen okay.
Learning knowledge that we're doing now teaching it like I'm doing it now making Dora making all of this is happening with the corresponding to the heart but mainly speaking you have to
When it comes to the body, there is almost 38 branches. And it will take us for the rest of the night. And this is not why we are here. This is a warm up for the lecture.
This is not the lecture, this is just a warm up to how to increase our demand. So we go to the means of increasing our email, how do we increase our email? How do we reach the peak, there are so many things listed by scholars, as I mentioned a few. Because if we manage to implement this view, we are winners.
And if we mentioned all of these, and nothing remains one, we have losers wasting our time. So the first thing the Prophet said that he saw Priscilla said central law, you need an email, ask Allah to renew the email in your heart. It used to do a lot in case my email, or a lot make my heart set. on Islam, you have to ask Allah, if you don't ask a lot, if you feel that you are independent, then you have a big problem in the heat.
In the corporate where I used to work tends abusable whenever we just the board, the CEO, the GM directors, we have our annual meeting, we talk about our forecast, we talk about our achievements. So in a PowerPoint, I managed to do this and to achieve my targets, exceeding it by 55%. And I will do this in the future. My vision is to do this and this.
You know that? Because I'm not
attributing it to myself. When my child falls sick, what do I do doctor saved my child, to have my child, I give him medicine, I try to create and make treatment after I finish everything I say,
let me ask,
you have a problem. Because you got these reversals? You do not do anything without a community. Okay.
Whoever says that, had it not been to the duck of my neighbor, the burglar would have broken into my home and robbed me. What is the situation? A person sleeping in his home, a burglar wants to break in the dark of the neighbor started cracking. The burglar felt scared he ran away.
So now he's asking you to
not being robbed to the duck, where he should have a dinner last says whoever says this, he has permission.
So we have a problem. First of all, we must be dependent 100% on
every single thing, you want to go for work, you have trust, and
you want to do something
in your schedule, to make my son pass the examination or pay off my debt. So I need to be guided. When I come and make
you I do end up my muscles. I asked her
to prevent me from doing a mistake.
and expand my heart and let my tongue say the right thing that you are faced with.
Because no matter how much you have, without depending on
who are the poorest person on earth, you need a lot so he doesn't need you. The moment you feel that you are independent or you're strong or I can do this on my own, you are a failure.
The more you are dependent on Omar, the higher your demand goes up.
And this was found with the old folks. The new generation don't have this. Old the old folks, the old geezers, leaving Alaska when did the Bedouins when they told them, the Brits are coming to invade you.
No problem. They said they have airplanes that fly and throw bombs
and that will say
who's above the other amount of things. So they say a lot
This is how you dress
Not to put obstacles and obstacles and obstacles and then you find that you are not dependent on
number two, in order to increase a man follow the way of the profit that is
said 13 years in what was he doing?
No fighting? No she had no prayer knows that that no fasting
what were they doing laying around
there what is the best form of email
they have been revealed to them to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, they will miss road and other companions say that we use to learn 10 verses of the Quran we will not learn anything else, until we memorize them understand them implement them, then move on.
And this is problematic nowadays because we are so ignorant.
We know everything and we will come to talk about karate later on, but
let us talk about it. Now. Let us see how much we know
compared to what we know about the place in Barcelona
or Madrid. We know the management dimension that those who are in the bench and the reserve we know the results of last year 2015 and 2000 record that we know
because we have great love for that. But if you come to the foreign How much do you memorize the Quran?
The last three chapters. I know three chapters of the 114
Masha Allah, Masha
Allah, what does it mean?
Allahu Allah. Whoa, Samana. What is a salmon? I don't know. But I know somebody. He sells sweets. And
then what is your problem? Your problem is that ALMAZ words the most beloved to Allah azza wa jal in what it is what came out of him, which is almost all speech, and it will return back to him.
This is what we should spend time.
Thank you. A great number of scholars used to say, by our bar to decide one area with contemplation, understanding and believe is more beloved to me than reciting the football.
How many times have we finished up? I know that among you Mashallah. Like the majority of Muslims finished.
This is the minimum
most of us,
if not all, Sharma. I see nothing. I don't know why you're laughing. Am I saying something wrong? When
we do this, the prophet has told us who has a problem. What was his problem? He used to finish the
lesson. Yes, the profit, don't do this. Finish the plan once a month, this is the minimum.
Once every 20 days, I can do more once every 10 days. I can do more once a week. And don't do it
once every three days, and don't do it less than that.
So we have to finish it once a month. But when we finish it, do we know what we're eating? Or we're just doing the homework.
What did you
have to check? You know what you just read it? No, I forgot.
Mother ambition is to pray. I pray with
you guys, for what I
believe. If you have
good hands if you don't, you have a problem. Allah says Indeed, those who recycle will come along and establish prayer and spend in his cause out of what we have what We have provided them secretly and publicly can expect a profit that will never catch. So the first thing is the less started because of the recycling of the
first you have to recycle
This is what the companions used to do.
And this is why after, whenever there was a problem, the Prophet used to refer to them, they were there when they were he's wrong.
Meaning that, including with the old Lead the Way, they ordered the unpassed, coal down Sol and the mahogany, first of all, called the mahogany, they immediately came back. These are the people that the prophets that have hand picked them, one by one and raised them accordingly. Secondly, or Thirdly, in order to increase your Emacs, you must take real good care of your,
of your obligatory forms of worship, and compete and fulfill that with the voluntary.
It is, needless to say, that when you have a problem with variable, then you have a problem in your email. You may find someone praying,
and not in prayer, and weeping and crying, and skipping project or in number one, district one
because I don't know what's your working hours and then grade
night so you can delay by two hours.
This is the worst thing that could happen.
When we give the people the excuse to visit the Ramadan to be a month of laziness and sleeping and it should be a month of agility and power and strength. Begin your working hours from 6:30am and finish it at 11am normally, but we ask the people and the students if they have school to come at 10 o'clock, I taught in high and public high schools in Saudi Arabia for 15 years. At 10 o'clock, we used to begin the first classes first session with the teacher putting his head on the desk. And the rest of the students following suit. The handler we have strong belts. So whenever things we wake up and we move to the second class and we continue our session,
this is not the right way of doing it. We are giving the wrong impression about Ramadan formula is the most ultimate thing. Listen to this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, Allah, the Almighty says, Who so ever shows enmity to someone devoted to me, I shall be at war with him.
If you express your enmity to someone who's devoted to Allah to Allah, Allah would be at war with you. Then Allah says my slave, droves not near to me with anything more love to me than the religious duties I have enjoyed upon them. So the most beloved things are the things that are like enjoying the point for your bravery. And this is why when they go Matt came to the Providence and said, What did Allah enjoy upon me? He said, pray five times a day, said anything else. You didn't know unless you want to offer voluntary?
The Prophet said, He will.
So was a lion joined upon you is the most beloved to Allah and it draws you closer to Allah and the Prophet
says, and my slave continues to draw near to me with voluntary worse. Now let me try to say this, and I don't know if
it works, is it right?
Okay, so it's volunteer. It's a very long word. And I'm going to read this part. And it says,
so that I shall love him, the more you offer of voluntary deeds, the mandala loves you After establishing one.
If you do not worry about our will not accept it. So essentially,
I've managed to do that. Now add as many words as you shall, because when I love him, I am his hearing with what she hears here is seeing which when he sees his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks, where he to ask something of me, I would truly give it to an end. Where he to ask me for refuge, surely and it so you want to increase your Eman. Observe the volume and you try this because so many people try it.
Whenever the advantage code come to the machine,
do we do this? 10 minutes before?
No, this five minutes before the con, there's one minute before, I think I can teach before the man goes, first, I think we can manage to the third or fourth, I think we can manage the shotput. I think we can manage the second. And now third, and fourth, Gemini and for Gemini was established in this question.
So these people keep on delaying and delaying and delaying until they do not fulfill this
by getting nearer to a logical force.
Among the things that will get your email boosted, is
to remember what I said.
And think it does not mean that you say Allah, Hi, I'm buying that working definition of mine.
You know that people are doing this. This is Stevie Wonder.
No, this is not the case. The case is in the heart, you can move your lips, no one knows you, but you're growing in demand by just remembering.
I remember one of the few years ago he was leaving us an asset.
And he was weeping like
he's kind of you could eat that of him. What type of the man is this? Will you play an asset?
Well, actually, I don't, I don't try to play behind the ships.
That you're not paying because of you're not crying because of Elijah just because the voice is nice hour because the location is making you cry. That is why among those who will be saved on the day of judgment and be shadowed in the shade of Allah is a person who mentioned somebody.
When was the last time you pray the Lord in your room, night prayer, or on your own, and you saw it coming out?
We have a problem. So Vicar is essential, the more you make thicker and remember a lot what do you mean by taken I made a couple of weeks ago in Nairobi, Kenya, beautiful place beautiful weather you should go there.
Again, full lecture on thinking and
and I benefited a lot from him. Because when you do a structured lecture, you have to research a lot. And then you find out things you did not know. So I think I posted it on my YouTube a couple of days ago, you can watch it for free, it can be dropped, I'll charge you for that, as much as
they can, is a broad term that includes your prayer, your recitation of the poor and whatever good deeds fasting has, it's part of the study.
But what we know that negate is something that you do with your tongue or with your heart. When you keep your mouth shut and your lips sealed. The degree is uncountable. I've seen so many brothers in here and elsewhere, when they pray, they say a lot luck but
meaning fighting as
soon as they pray.
That prayer is invalid when you sit in the masjid reading Mashallah one Jew support to do so. And you like this? you're scanning it with your eyes, your brain is not rewarded. I used to do this a few years ago. And then I was told this is not permissible. And I got crazy.
I said no way.
I spent so many hours researching older books and references that I have just to see what the senior scholar saying that is valid.
I spoke to gentleman
on the phone and scholars of Islam, not a single one said it's okay. You must move your lips and it's silent. But you have to say
you must or it will not become so watch the video maybe you will like it.
So liquor is very important. You walk from here to the car, what do you do?
I sing songs. I remember things. No, say the most beloved to Allah say. Now memorize it's very difficult but
Memorize, the most preferred and beloved to Allah you can ever say.
You can write it down if you wish
the most, how many times you say today
how many times you seek forgiveness for loss of
a job, I need a wife
I need, I need a I need this I need that.
all of this comes from signals
and repeated and disease, and you will find the blessings of a lot open to you. So, it is important. The Prophet says and listen to this. When I'm making the prophets Elijah who ever
fails to pray and I pray,
he goes to sleep he doesn't pray, and whoever is stingy, that he does not spend money in the course of Allah and whoever is a coward, that he does not make jihad. In this case, he must make plenty of a lots of MS make a lot of vigor. If you fail to pray night prayer, to give money
and to make you happy, then do not leave making a lot
of peace with him. He said that I the last advice I got from the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was when I asked him what is the most beloved deeds to Allah. This is the last thing I've heard from the Prophet then he died. The Prophet said
that you die. Why your tongue is moist with the Chroma.
This is the most beloved. If you don't work, no pain, no gain. If you don't train to remember Allah azza wa jal you cannot come to moments before you die say I will start making bigger collages over but if you live on remembering about when you die, you die on remembering. She's like, brainwash, but in a positive sense, if you watch movies or TV series, listen to music that
has only songs that have only curse words when a 16 Wheeler comes to hit you while you're driving and you know you are going to die What if
you die because this is what you hear and you repeat, but if you make a guess of Panama
and you see this and you go
and this is the last thing you say. So this is why it is so important for us and how much that we have a ship
constitute now what is most more beloved to Allah azza wa jal
the floor is open
Don't be ashamed. just asked him so definitely we have three opinions.
So three opinions
no, this is out of scope. I said Please,
not one of them. So,
okay. All three.
draws our attention to a problem. People are divided into two types, habitual worshipers, meaning that they worship according to their habits
and worshipers according to endless desire.
So, what do you mean I'm sure.
Most of us are accustomed to a habit or a routine in our forms of worship. We would never ever allow anyone to diverges.
from him, even if he's by birth to something that is more important,
because we are putting blindfolds, and we will like horse racing, you know, when they put these size things, they don't see anything except what's in front of the big veil to see what's around them. This is what we do. So it is time to fast on data Thursdays, I will never break Mondays and Thursdays no matter what happens. If my father doesn't eat, I love you to eat to know, if my work demands me to break my fast because it's better for the passengers, I'm fine or for the patient, I am opening his guts to not I'm happy.
This is a problem in priority, while those who worship a lot according to what Allah is, is there
a lot of says, I will go I love this more I will go Why do we give this example
for an is the most beloved thing to Hamas.
But it cannot be read in places where it is permitted. For example, I will record
what is better to recycle,
recycle and I'm sinful because the Prophet told me not to recycle.
I always thought that one was better, it is better generally speaking, but when it comes to be implemented in a place that is not required to then know after Salah is finished, Dona
Ana, Panama, our
My son is sick. And I would like to ask Allah for cure and healing better or
ask Allah for healing
is better. So each location is positioned as a priority. Once you understand this, then you can utilize it is the 27th of Ramadan, it is time for the happy prayer. My mom says let's go and visit your uncle, it is so that it is connecting to your next of kin. What is more in wait.
I'm going to Tel Aviv and getting the chance to have a nice break
of the key maybe later is more valuable
than connecting with the next of kin and I can connect my uncle later on tomorrow The day after activity it says not gonna go it's not gonna leave. So you have to know and evaluate. So we have just listed quickly among the things that
increase your Eman to contemplate in hours, favors upon
when you see someone smoking in the street, what do you do now like
cancers and high blood pressure and blockage in the arteries and diabetes and from me take
this as an extra bonus.
The profits and whenever you see someone who was or is tested by a calamity, whether he's sick, or he has a sin you see
under the Advani medterra who he was
this guy who said not only when you see someone who's sick, you praise them that he granted you health or granted you safety from such and favorite you upon so many people you feel like this gives me like the best and favorite or whenever you're driving your
beautiful Camry 2018 foot option with the navigation and you see a Porsche 911 GTS for bass improves.
Don't say this because even the driver of the Porsche and GTS for doing so much acceleration says the same thing when he says he's coming next year.
And even the Bugatti order says the same thing when he sees his neighbor flying his report to Paris will have cross off and even the one with the gene for going to Mars for cross saw fears sorry when he sees Air Force One.
It goes on and on. If you don't have contempt, if you don't have the gratitude to Allah so the little things that so many people are deprived of, then you will never ever increase any man. But the more you see
things and you related to your service and hamdulillah I have my feet to walk on people may be paralyzed, I have my health I have my wife is not a blessing, but
I have my children, I have just I have that Whoa, whoa, he we have so many things that
the more you contemplate the more demand goes skyrocket
when you appreciate it when you are content with a lot what has given you among the things that would increase your EMA. And this is a well known fact to most of you.
When everybody's asleep, and you wake up.
And I've tried this, the professor never wakes up in the middle of the night.
And he says,
and then access alone as it is. So many times I've underwent
problems in life. And I keep on waking,
at a specific time in the middle of the night. The first thing I say is this talk. And then I asked a lot to relieve me from my canonical,
your righteous person.
I know, I know me very well. It has nothing to do with how good nor bad. It has written with the first thing that comes out of your mouth when you wake up. It took me almost three months to manage it. By the way, every time I wake up, I ended up finding myself in the toilet looking in the mirror.
I did not say that.
Until I got into my system. Once I got into my system online, the first thing I wake up, I make a list of
lists for a lot of people for about two days.
And I do it with conviction that I will respond and will happen.
So you have to
a prophecy that is
the order of a believer is my prayer. And remember I was told this person does not rain I pray. He said he said he
doesn't pray my prayer. This is the thing that the Prophet had. Nevertheless, even if he overslept or was sick, he would make it up.
Instead of 11, he would pray. So this is something that would definitely can boast and increase your Eman way up. Of course, this adds more value. When you stand in
contemplation, concentration, knowing what you're recycling. When you show an expression of submissiveness in chatroom is normally running after you. There's no one behind me. There's no one timing you. Because I've noticed it myself when I create on my own. I do this from 600 to 16.5 seconds. But if I'm reading the messages, it takes me a half an hour. For sure. People watching know when you bring it over
in a mindset setting.
So when you do this, the first thing you do
brushing your teeth
is my wife, no, your wife but the Prophet tells us that you should begin with this work when you wake up for a nightmare. Why? The Prophet tells us that there is an angel that approaches you while reading the Koran and he puts his mouth on your mouth and whatever comes out of your mouth existence.
How would you pray I pray the shower tonight. When you have this concept, and you say Allahu Akbar.
Coming, receiving what you are reciting,
would you be distracted?
You won't try that you will find that to me that is being the most
among the things that in case you're a man is when you visit the sick people.
When you appreciate those who are bedridden, whether it's in a hospital or a relative or you see them in agony and in their pain and you make dua for them, you feel your heart is suffering.
This is normal, as normal is that you need to look at you say
this is sick. No normally whenever you see people in
Pain in agony. Sometimes we get clips of atrocities here and there, I cannot see it.
Not because I'm afraid of blood, or I have a weak heart, but I cannot see people suffering. It kills me. So I decide not to watch these things. And visiting sick people, there is a vast amount of reward, and I can tell you the hobbies, but this would take us endlessly to nowhere so much in visiting the sick people that
we should think and consider. Among other things that increase an hour the man is thinking about death,
visiting graveyards, contemplating on those buried in it. The Prophet said that I saw to Salah I used to forbid you from visiting the graves. Now, I'm ordering you to visit them because it reminds you of the hereafter.
Whenever I enter a grave,
I cannot be so quiet. And I contemplate how many kings how many ministers? How many CEOs? How many actors and actresses? How many wealthy billionaires? What have they gained? Nothing. And then I think of myself next, what do I have? Nothing. So I remembered, okay, now I have to get in. Shape Up. I have to do something. I'm still walking tomorrow, I'll be headed into a graveyard or a cemetery rather than walk into it.
Remember death? You in many cases? Because it gives you a reminder that Listen, I'm going to die soon.
Most of us, if not all, don't think like this.
How old are you?
So how long will you live?
Yes, I heard that No.
No one feels.
And the camera you get older, the more new routes are fixed in the ground. When we were young. We used to drive recklessly.
like crazy maniacs, we used to not feel that no matter what happens.
More in the older you get closer to the wheel, you put on your seatbelt and the passenger seatbelt again, just in case you know, if you drive, you know 2030 kilometers per hour, and you don't want to look sideways. Most people will find the anxiety or say things unless you want to be safe. You want to live.
When you think of that positively, as we mentioned in today's hope it would then
positively of death. You think that is your way out. So you start doing good things to start avoiding harm. You start the blind and lying or backbiting for evil things and you're expecting it to come. If you're a calamity, once you remember that you find that this calamity is not serious. If you are in prosperity and wealth and you're happy you're elegant once you remember that you become small and say, Well I have a problem with all of this. I'm going to be held accountable for that mistake something
that is very beneficial.
Among the things that may increase your Eman is this circles of knowledge. And this is noticeable The more you attend circles of knowledge, the more your demand is elevated. Why? Allah says in the Quran in the Maya.
No one among number seven's fear among more than the scholars which means that the more you learn, the more fear of a lot you gain and the more Eman you get increase in your heart, also sitting with righteous people.
When you sit with righteous people, you will inevitably gain benefit. If I simply share his righteous thoughts feelings, do you think we can talk about real estate's and buying property or stock market? He will tell me he will tell me if this tire is so beautiful and this is the right this is how we will talk with
They meet, they don't talk about nothing. They focus on one
thing I have a window I know that needs money for medicine for her children. We know this refugee camp in so on. So I think there is a lecture in must
from us this past week. I don't know what it means to
make fun of it, but this is beside the point. So we have this we have that and you get more and more imagine building up in your heart. And on the contrary, also you have to avoid but company you have to avoid sinful people and places of sin because this decreases your Eman drastically. One by one
half an hour, or one movie. I was in London
and the brother who was taking him from the airport to my accommodation for they were arranging a conference and we passed by so many billboards and I looked at one I said I was very it takes me a lot of time to read English I don't speak English. So I was
on the right side.
What are you talking about?
and move on.
We have split personalities we think that we can come to a lecture to increase our email and go back and watch a movie or listen to music or free mix or do haram things. Why are you doing this? Okay, I have credit. Okay, there is not a mobile company. You have credit cash.
So this gives me credit to sin. I have a six month credit I can see then I will make another home run. You recharging your mobile your recharging your email. There is nothing as this. The more you watch haraam, the more Eman decreases until you do not notice it. Until you are so engaged in sin, that you make sin and why are you looking at me? There is nothing wrong with what I'm doing. You don't recognize that you are falling into sin and this is why our laws ordered the highest person in a man who is the
Prophet Mohammed, Allah
Subhana Allah when we read the Quran, this is it every single Friday. And it is mind blowing. This is an instruction and a command to the prophet of Islam. And to us as well Allah says, and keep yourself patiently by being with those who call upon their Lord in the morning and the evening, seeking His countenance. The Arabic is
seeking his face, so that Allah has a face, translating it into continents. This is problematic when it comes to attributes of Allah, it should be translated as it is, but and let not your eyes This is to the proper tension. And let not your eyes pass beyond them desiring adornments of the worldly life and do not obey one whose heart We have made heedless of our remembrance, and who follows his desire and whose affairs or whose affair is ever in neglect.
We are totally opposite to this verse. Who do we associate ourselves with? Will my co workers know why Yamato where whenever I sit with them, they scare the hell out of me. They're Hellfire, you're going to die, you're going to hell, you're sinful. You're bad. You're a hypocrite. You're evil. I hate myself. I want to come out of my clothes, whenever I sit with them, but when I sit with my friend, so and so Allahu Akbar, he makes my head explode of laughter. He cracks jokes. And the best time is when he talks about dirty you know, jokes below the belt, who is hilarious, I love I love to sit with him. Allah says watch bear nutsack keep yourself patient by being with those who call upon
their Lord in the morning in the evening seeking his face
and do not exceed the way you look. Don't look elsewhere. And this is what we're doing. Even in salaat there was a colleague of mine who used to pray and once his mobile Ranga rank so
He took his mobile insula. He did this
he did this. And then he said
during Asana text
and we finished this. What are you doing? I say this. I was confused and I had to and some of the scholars say that if it's going to distract you in Salah you have to attend it, Masha, Allah, Allah, and why didn't he attended my webinar? He said,
we have a problem. We look everywhere but not to salaat not to what Allah azza wa jal wants. And
before the last, we have one of the things that increase your Eman is when you
attend people needs
she among the those best in Eman, those who do charity.
And I know people who are not very much practicing, but Masha Allah in secret. They know 6070 homes, they bring them flour, they bring them milk, they bring them out frying oil every single couple of weeks, secretly, and they collect and they say, well, we I know someone who has chemotherapy and cannot afford it. I have this I have that. A friend of mine, a neighbor, his wife was struck by cancer. And the people in Saudi Arabia told her she's a hopeless case why? Doctors told him your wife is dead. Why are you bringing her so he took her to somewhere else and started treatment of in Europe. And Mashallah, this has meant for two and a half years and she's improving but ups and
downs. The guy is not practicing. He came to my house. Sure how awesome. Do you have people that need help? I told him I personally, I do not accept any charity. And no, no one because I'm an imam of the masjid. Imagine the amount of people coming to me from all different parts of gender asking for and I cannot verify. I don't have the time to cross check anyone who comes to me? I have a hearing problem. Okay, what's wrong with your eyes? Oh, this is a different problem should I don't have time to verify this? So I stole it but my wife does. My wife has enough time to check with these immigrants with so and so he immediately took from his pocket under 1000 rounds.
He's not a Saudi, by the way. 100,000 years, how much is that about 9000 kgs
is it give this in charity May Allah help. And a week later, he brought me 40,000
I thought I would not be able to spend this except in a year. While I took me almost eight days wasted.
People are in need.
And when you know and verify the need of the people in to give it to them, you will find that your levels of demand are skyrocketing. Why? Because you're helping people and Allah zildjian is your word. And finally, and this by itself requires a lecture. One of the best things you can spend your time in
after reciting the Quran is learning the seal of the prophet or a saucer. You cannot help it will lie I cannot help it. I have taught the seal of the Prophet that is a sham. So many times in Arabic and in English, and Hooda TV you find a long series until the Battle of honey. In Arabic I finished it twice or three times. In that TV I finished a number of different topics on the profit center especially shamal the story I know by heart
but whenever I go through it and read it while I cannot hold my tears.
The stories of the Prophet it sort of Sam, you feel so emotional, you cannot camouflage it. You cannot hide it. You cannot fake it even if you're on your own when you read his suffering. When you read his love to hadisha Allahu Akbar
a necklace that Khadija gave to Cena. her eldest daughter
has long debt.
I will ask
the husband of Khadija who were was still with her in Makkah before the separation between Muslims and Muslims was obliged. He was captured. So the Prophet requested ransom she sent from Makkah the necklace
Prophet alayhi salatu salam, when he saw the necklace,
and remembered the love he had for the Khadija.
And he asked the people if they were to let him go for his sake and they said yes, we accept that. And he returned their him to Makkah with the necklace, a story like this.
You read it hundreds of times. But whenever you read it again, or say, you cannot
but feel the love the Prophet had chosen.
You cannot control yourself.
The more you read the Sierra
you will find your Eman is be increased. The more you read the events that took place in the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, you cannot hold yourself back. You have this great love for him. And you want to be with him engender, this boost of Eman is required. The more you learn, the more you get benefits. Also, if you read the life story of the companions, of abubaker of Omar, man of alley of Saudi Arabia, cars,
obey, obey the law of obey the law or all these great companions at number one faith and so on. You get close to them and Mubarak.
May Allah have mercy on his soul was known to be a mural of meaning in Hades. He's not a companion. But he was one of the great scholars of Islam. his companion said why after praying Asia, you don't sit with us. He said what do I sit with you for you backed by Muslims. I go and sit with the prophet or a Son of Sam and his companions. I go in my home, I read their life stories I lead, I read their biography, and I get more a man. So this is some of the issues some of the points and it's only the tip of the iceberg. So many things that would increase your email but you have to work in order to get your email increases. Good lectureship. It's like a beautiful point. How many will we implement?
Will we be able to at least do the obligatory things and get closer to Allah with voluntary things? Would we inject in our daily routine one Jews of the Quran? Will we be able to pray night prayer will we be able to quit listening to her or music? Or watch her on things and occupy ourselves with Japan Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, would we be able to invite others and frequently attend lectures and circles of knowledge? If we succeed, then definitely inshallah, we will find the difference between before and after, in terms of a man Hadar will win this battle in Mira Haslam masala, shalom Baraka, Mohammed, voila, it was a big marine.
