smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam wa ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala early he was happy he may or praises you to allow him a the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and upon all of the prophets and messengers that were sent for the guidance of mankind by the respective brothers and sisters in Islam Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Today inshallah Allah we are going to explore yet another topic from amongst the topics of revival silent hand by mmm and now we have a Hema who loves to highlight. Even more now he has a topic in his great book,
which is entitled Babylon feeling more better than it in a pirate. We're happy Manta jehadi hierin Island acaba de la He will judge the inheritor of
this chapter is about hastening, hastening or being quick, being quick to do good deeds and not hesitating not hesitating. So in sha Allah to Allah mmm no rahima Hola, hola Allah. He opened up this chapter with some verses related to the topic of hastening and being good to do good deeds. And he opens up with two areas
related to this topic, and then several Hudis, traditions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about this important topic. So we begin inshallah huhtala. by stating that a member No, we, in his heading has two areas the first area is hastening to Duke with dates. That's the first part of the heading. So the heading actually consists of two components.
So the first one is about hastening to do good deeds. And the second part of the hitting is that once you have committed and you have the intention, to do a good deed, and to go ahead with doing that, and performing that Good day, not to hesitate, not to hold back, but to proceed, but to proceed. Now, let's talk about inshallah. hota. Allah, hastening to do good deeds being quick to do good deeds, and what that means is of course, is the opposite. Maybe, you know, the antonym of of hastening and being quick is, is being unhurried and hurried in doing righteous deeds or meritorious deeds, good deeds, righteous actions, or, you know, dawdling, you know,
or being sluggish, or being lazy with regards to doing a good deed. So, this is the opposite of what this topic and what the hobbyists in the area are suggesting and instructing us now, in so panela yani how many people
procrastinate, this is a word that you know, delay and they just put things off put good doing good deeds of a procrastinate. And as a result of their procrastination, okay, they forfeit, they forfeit a great deal of adger of reward of,
you know, of good deeds. And basically they turned, they turn and they transform what is an opportunity into a missed opportunity. This is very unfortunate. And in the Hadith, which is found in Sahih, Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said a lot of coffee and mineral coffee hirundo illa Allah hirundo illa men and woman advice in a minute by that the strong believer, okay, the strong believer is better and DERA to Allah is better and dearer to Allah than a week one, and
in all these good things, so what do you call in what we call in hype? Now, being a believer is a good thing. But more beloved to Allah azza wa jal is the one who is who is strong with his ear man strong with his physical abilities to do things for the sake of Allah azza wa jal is more beloved to Allah azza wa jal so Muslim is one who is constantly training his ear man training his knifes training his looking after his body. So one is nurturing and looking after both the physical and the spiritual, okay aspects of our of our lives and the process.
While he was selling in this hadith he goes on and he says, it hurts. It hurts Allah Ma and Parker was saying Villa while attaches. The prophet SAW Selim said, Keep beseeching, keep calling upon keep invoking, keep invoking Allah for help, and do not refrain from it. So again, don't give up. Keep on asking Allah azza wa jal to give you that support to give you that hate that aid, to give you that help, and to make you victorious, and to make you a better person and a stronger person, you know, many of us, we, we quit very quickly, you know, we are defeatist, okay. And it's very important that we stay focused and face and stay strong. And yes, we will be facing many adversities, and many,
many challenges in our lives. And so panela, where they come from, a person has no idea that it is even coming. And so this is very important to keep in mind. So, each time a person hears or comes across, or remembers a good deed, with a, you read it in the Koran, or you read it in the Hadith, or you hear it in a hot bath, or you hear it in a lecture, you read it in a book, you hear Have a good day, you see a good deed, then the prophet SAW, Selim is advising us to be quick, and to hasten in executing that good deed, don't delay, don't procrastinate. Because,
you know, and this applies to everything, and especially when it comes to our obligatory duties, whether it is select or whether it is sought after, or, you know, charity, or whether it's LCN, our fasting or whether it's hedge,
whether it's being beautifulness, dutiful, towards one's parents, we shouldn't be procrastinating, and putting things off and saying later, later, I'll do it later, I'll put on hijab, later, I will refrain from river Later I will adhere to this Islamic manner or that this is a problem that we have, you know, people delaying. And it might well be that you procrastinate, and then what happens and then you become incapacitated, that is you become incapable. So you put it off, you put it off, and then guess what, you no longer can do it, it's too late, then have the physical ability, you don't have any more any skill or strength to do that good deed that you are putting off. So Islam is
again, teaching us and encouraging us and driving us towards towards doing goodness and being hasty quickly do the good deed.
Otherwise, what can happen, you could die.
Know, in a medical mode, the Angel of Death does not give you an invitation. Or he sends you a you know, a card or an invite or an SMS or an email or some sort of notification that you know, you will die on this day, you know, get ready? No, it just happens. You just die. Nobody knows when they're going to die. Nobody knows where they're going to die. That's what Allah, Allah tells us, you know, how many doctors have told patients that you will die in X amount of months, and they live for X amount of years. Okay, and so on and so forth. So you don't know when you're going to die, you don't know when you're going to fall? Ill you could be you could, you know, fall into an illness that
disables you. Allahu Akbar. So, you know, this, Allah said, and I would ask you, we asked Allah subhanho, to protect us from, you know, from falling into these into these hardships. But nevertheless, this is a reality of life. And the reality is that people die. The reality is that people fall ill, the reality is that time expires, sometimes you only have a window of opportunity. So for example, it could be a project building a machine, okay, or contributing towards a soccer project that a worthy project. But they give you an opportunity to invest in that, right, because it's an investment for you here after. And then what happens is that, that's it, that project is
finished, guess what you missed out. So when people actually come knocking on your door for soda, and you know, and they want you to contribute towards a worthy cause in Islam, they're actually doing you a favor, because you now have the ability to give subaqua. So when you when somebody comes knocking on your door, or you have an opportunity, or an invite to a soccer project, whatever it may be, for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, you should jump on really quickly. Because this is going to be something in your for your own benefit. Because whatever you put forward is for your own benefit. So there's an Arabic saying, that says
hydrotherapy, ideally here, this is a very beautiful thing, really.
You can apply it in so many so many
areas in your life payroll bill hire the best of their ability means goodness, righteousness, how you will be agile he is that which is done quickly, it's executed very quickly. So if you hear someone gives you again an opportunity to do a good Act, or you come across a good act, do it very quickly. That's the best thing that you can do. Whether it's helping somebody financially or helping somebody with your words or with your actions, whatever it might be, if it's been if it's good, and you hear about it, go for it. Don't delay is a very beautiful saying that that is basically taken from the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Speaking
of procrastination, in the Hadith that is found in Sudan even magic, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Man, Ahmad Al Hajj, that whoever wants to perform hajj and umrah and Hajj fell into agile, well it agile is agile at this hastiness it needs to be haste, failure to agile for a project for India who had young Ruth and Maria.
He said that the sick person, one can fall sick, one can fall ill
and he goes on and he says, what a little rahila Oh, maybe you lose your means of transportation, you no longer have the means to get to the hedge. So be quick you can fall ill you could not have the means of being transported in you know, there, whether it's financial constraints or what have you. What are the hedges or some other need may come about, you know, that so those people who have the financial ability and the physical ability to perform hedge, you know, the advice is, you know, intend, with a firm intention to do it next year. If you haven't done so already. Don't delay don't procrastinate. You know, some people will lie shavon deceives them into thinking that you know, not
really, you know, I've got to be really really pure and there's a few things in my life, I've got to get into order before I go to Hajj. So shape onwards, you know, but really, if you have the financial ability and the physical ability, don't procrastinate will lie, you can go to Hajj and and your whole your whole life can just change forever for the best and for the better inshallah. So this is a problem that we have with so many Muslims procrastinating, you know, good deeds and especially Hajj, you know, and they think that Hajj is only for when you get older, or you know, when I get married or when this and when that and they have all sorts of excuses. This is not what
Islam teaches us.
Now going back to him and know him Allah to Allah, and in this chapter, he says, He commences the chapter with a very beautiful area from bacala, the second chapter of the Quran verse a number 148, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, faster vehicle higher,
faster equal higher art, faster vehicle, and this translated means so hasten Be quick towards all that is good for studypool. And so how Allah subhanaw taala uses, hear the word study. And this means to rush right? But the word is another word for also being for hastening and being quick. And that is the word Serbia who said before, but alas, the paradigma he used his vehicle, it's a richer, it's more, it's more comprehensive, and it entails more in terms of how quick you should be. So don't just be quick, be very quick is who is that equal? hierarchy? hierarchy is good, the goodness and the good things.
So it's about being any first and foremost. You know, being first and this is what when you aim to be first and when you add to be you know, when you aim high, you know, you know don't aim for you know, when you aim for, you know, aim for the stars don't aim for the moon because if you aim for the stars you shall you get to the moon. Okay, so aiming always higher, and always being first and so apparently if you think about this word first, it's amazing that you know,
if you aim if you think about
things that are first you always remember the first ones the first things the first person the first winner, right? You can have second and third, right but how many of us ever remember second and third? You don't remember second and third. But you do remember the first. Okay You always remember the best. And this is why we should be always aiming for what is best and aiming to be from amongst the foremost ones. You know the serve your phone, you know
especially in many areas of a bed and one area of a bed to be you know first and foremost with regards to the males is to you know hasten to be in the foot in the first rows of the Salah you know in the Hadith which is found in Sahih Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Cairo so fulfilled the Jan the best rows of the men a while to her, that is the first rows the first row then the second, you're filling up the first rows, especially the first group, you know, and there are many had to do with it, you know, you know, competing and rushing to be in the first round the solid yet there, you know, many Muslims who, who come to the center, and they and they sit in the
furthest rows, and they sit at the back of the machine. So he's saying, hey, we'll fulfill the jelly, uh, well, her was shot through her through her and the least, and the least of the rows in like, you know, shot actually means worse, but in this context is like the least in terms of being favored other. He says efeito had the last rows there the least in terms of merits and reward?
Well, hierro superfine sir, as for the best rows of the women, they're the last ones because they're the ones they're not so close to them in. And that the shadow or were, or shadow her or what to her, and that the least favorite are the first rows.
And the profits along while he was selling. He actually once he saw the process, he actually saw
some people at the far end of the message. And we read and say, Hey, I'm Muslim, and he said, he said come forward, he said come forward, and close to me and let those who come after you follow your lead. And then he said, if people continue to fall behind, and he is a general statement, to general statement. If people continue to fall behind, in other words, in inquiry in in, in, in acquiring virtuous deeds, a lot puts them behind. Allah puts them behind. So in other words, a lot of panel with Allah, He helps he aids he supports
those who don't lag that those who don't lag behind his, those who are foremost those who are first, you know,
he makes matters convenient for them. I'll make things easy for you when you are first and foremost and reward you abundantly.
The next verse that emammal nowait rahima hula hula Allah has included in this chapter is the verse in sort of earlier and Milan which is the third chapter of the Quran verse 133.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, was
nothing Naruto has Santa
that that little motor clean, last part dialysis and hastened be quick to forgiveness. seriola macura teen to forgiveness was Sadie Oh, lm a Puritan man Rob become from your Lord. And a garden as wide as the heavens and the earth prepared for the righteous that is analyzed is a beautiful a. And this is the thing with many of these as we need to analyze them, we need to really look at the message that is being given to us by Allah azza wa jal and not just
taking a very cursory sort of stance or look at the verse.
So here a lot of panel with Tyler is instructing us to be swift, to be quick, to be swift in doing actions that wipe away the sins and wipe away our bad deeds, acts that warrant macura forgiveness. Allah azza wa jal is a form of Rahim. Allah subhanaw. taala is a law firm, he's the one who forgives the sins. So how do we get our sins atoned or forgiven or wiped out? Through sayings through actions, what kind of sayings? Very basic things by saying a stuff or a lot of stuff or a lot of stuff for Allah? Or by saying, Allah, Allah forgive me, Allah forgive me a lot of my family, or by saying Allah met in the stuff. Allah I asked for besito forgiveness.
So again, this is the state of a Muslim who is perpetually or in constant, you know, constant and consistent in a consistent State of Israel.
What about actions there are many acts that you can do I mean, the basic principle is this. A lot of power dialer has taught us in the core an in house anarchy, you didn't say it has senate any cancel out would have
gonna cancel out so yet it cancels out since in to the heaviness say
so how do we what kind of Senate can we do many husbands have the left may ask like what like we'll do. So panela Danny will do in the heavy Spanish sandwich. Many of us probably under underestimate the power of thought. Yeah, we just think about it is just you know about washing a few of our limbs and just you know, that's it and we get to select, but in actual fact, in actual fact, the process tell them he said that whoever of you, whoever Have you performs will do carefully, you know, especially with whoever our viewer performs will look carefully and then he says and he affirms is a shadow under the law in the law. I should do Allah Allah illallah wa hula Sheree Kala
Wai shadow, Mohammed Abu rasuluh you say it like this a shadow Allah Allah illallah wa hola Sarika why shadow Ana Mohammed Abu or a solo? What happens perfection of abou and saying the Shahada the eight gates of Jenna open for him the eighth gates of gender open for him and he may enter three which of the gates he desires to emphasize love just by perfecting your word. I mean there are other Hadith that talk about you know the will do and the merit of will do and how when you're washing your your body parts and that are to be washed in we'll go how they learned the sins of falling off even with the last drop of the water.
So then under estimate we'll do and that's perfect, I will do that let's not leave any dry spots in in the places that are supposed to be any washed in our door.
So, and a lot of panel with you know and there are the solid work of five daily prints and the associated neuroactive you know those shouldn't appraise that are associated with them. And there is you know Friday Prayer there is Ramadan the process of selling he said a solar weapon clumps that there between the five daily prayers while Juma Juma between one Friday and the next Friday and ramadan ramadan in between the one Ramadan and the next your sins will be wiped away as long as you avoid the major sins as long as you are avoiding and distancing yourself Milka.
Then Yanni hamdulillah Allah, Allah is wiping away the sins.
Another in another narration and from one camera to another camera again, let's detoxify the toxify with it with if we can afford a yearly trip to Amara Yeah, to which I take some couple of hours and maybe if you're already in the, in that part of the world, you know, you may be in a neighboring country, why not make a quick visit to Mexico? Why not, you know, you know, have it in your itinerary. And it'd be very cheap, you know, just to just to go there just even for one night just to do it. I'm gonna chip in detoxify and just, you know, cleansing yourself from all the impurities that you have, you know, accumulated over over the year.
So, this is something to also reflect upon to think about.
So again, there are things there are actions that we can do, to have our sins forgiven, that we should be hasting hastening towards. And Allah, Allah in this verse, he says, What Jonathan Aldo has sent to what
he said as we heard before, was sad to illamasqua. So be quick towards forgiveness and towards a agenda towards a paradise.
is about Allah He described he describes to us the width of this gentleman, and the width of it is the is is the heaven, the heavens and the earth. So again, Allah subhanaw taala is indicating to us the vastness and the greatness of this journey, it is very wide, very wide gentleman, okay. And how do we gain it we get it through by carrying out the commands of Allah zoologia by carrying out the commands of Allah, Allah as origin and that we should rush towards Jen, you know, by doing the things that actions that lead to gender and the only actions that lead to gender are the good ones, or the righteous ones are the ones that we find in the end are the ones that we find in the Sunnah
of the prophet SAW Selim.
So this is what we need to keep in mind inshallah Allah to Allah as we are traveling towards Allah subhanaw taala in the hereafter.
The next part of this area, that a lot of power that I have been mentioning rationing and hastening towards a muffler and racing and rushing toward gender, he says what he says, that limits me, this gender which has been prepared for who
It's been prepared for them with duping those who have Taqwa, those who reveal a law, those who feel a law those who are conscious of Allah.
And who prepared the gentleman.
That who who is it that is prepared agenda, we find that the one who has prepared the agenda is Allah subhanaw taala. And so, and the proof and the evidence for this, we read it into the hippo Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in this Hadith, he says, I'd like to add that to the baddie asylee in I have prepared, I have prepared this as a Hadeeth quartzite had it could see that truly a body of soil of Hina, Myrna 18 on the right, I have prepared for my righteous, my righteous slaves, mela, I know what the eye has not seen, when a woman on semi eyes and what they he has not heard, when a hopper will be basher and that which you cannot even perceive that which does
not even come to the heart of any one of you. This is what gender is about. And Jenna has a motto or a diary or you need to pay you need to pay you need to pay with your good deeds.
So, then we find so Pamela and remember no he has not mentioned this here in this chapter.
But in the verse that follows in the verses that follow this particular area, about rushing towards, you know, forgiveness and gender that is prepared, be prepared for the for the Mata pain.
Allah subhanho wa Taala he actually describes to us the characteristics of those who have Taqwa. Who are they who are these would tuck in
a lot of rock that doesn't keep us in the dark.
And he actually describes to us who are those that have the decoy. A lot of pantalla says, I levena your nephew, Sarah Sara.
Lee mean, well, the mean and, voila, Vina and in
one law who you have bully masini Allah tala spec says, Those who spend in the course of Allah.
Allah Vina Sarah, those who spent in a Sarah era, those who spent in the cause of Allah azza wa jal, during ease and during hardship,
and those who restrain or suppress their anger, when I have been on in class, and those who pardon people, one law who you have bully mazzini and Allah loves the those who do the doers of good or those who do good deeds. Now, again, we can analyze this verse, Allah subhanaw taala says Lavina Yun Fiona in fact means dispense. alladhina Unicode is Sara Sara in secret in hiding without others knowing fissara or we could say so right here we are in terms of ease. So there's there are two times that people give stuff up as this area is suggesting and telling us that we give in a Sarah when in times of ease, will feel
and during times of hardship. So not only giving up when things are going easy, but giving when things are actually tough. And we're going to see one of the hobbies in a moment that mmm no we chose that actually reflect this and that exemplify this a.
So in fact, so, so one of the characteristics of I looked up all of those who give sadaqa right to part with their wealth, because how that guy is, is sadhaka is what soccer is a customer of constantly, your truthfulness, your truthfulness in your love of Allah azza wa jal
will tell the mean
and those who suppress their anger. This is one of the characteristics of a toughy of a person of taqwa. A person of taqwa is one who controls his anger. And that's why when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was approached by a Sahabi and he asked him Yasuda Allah obviously give me advice and that's not the oseni method of sending letters letter three times he told him do not become angry, do not become angry.
So it's about being patient and having that sub and not letting your your your your rage or your inner rage to come out and just start doing things at this present Eliza Jen. And this is why we have in the Hadith which is fantasizing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Lisa Shetty that Lisa Shetty will be
Sora in lemme Shaggy, Bella dm liquid epsa we're in the hot tub, that the shady the strong person is not the one who is able to wrestle his opponent to the ground.
Not the one who is able who's strong into in wrestling and you know, physical strength. That's not the strong person. Yet the processing of you said, a shaded LLVM liquid apps are horrendous. But the strong person is the one who controls and contains himself. When he is angry, when he is in a state of rage. That's the strong person.
That's the real test.
So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he actually told us and he informs us with his anger and this rage comes from he says,
that, that it is that the anger is a heat bead, you know, a heat beat,
piece of coal, that shape on that shape on throws into the heart of a person.
And the prophet SAW love while he was selling, he has taught us the remedy has given us a prescription.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
is the puppy but he is the the
he is the the doctor or the the the one who gives us medicine of our hearts, medicine of the Spirit medicine even for the physical ailments that we have. And that's why we have books in Islam that are called prophetic medicines. prophetic medicine of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when we do become angry, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he teaches us to say I was a biller him in a shake on the fridge.
When you become angry, one of the things that you can do in terms of anger management, yes, and hamdulillah Islam has given us anger management techniques.
Well, like this is the reality. Islam has left no stone unturned. It's the either saying Allah Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim.
And this is based on the habit of invalidity whereby the prophet SAW Selim, he saw a man who, whose veins which argue whose juggler veins are popping out, you know, he's turned red, and the problems I sent him so I know a phrase, I know a phrase that if that person says it, his anger will go away. And he said, to say, a hold up, let him in a shape on the regime.
And yet another prescription from us the prescriptions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to bring yourself from a higher position to a lower position. So for example,
if you are angry, and you are standing, sit down,
sit down. That's why that when somebody is angry, you said, Please, please take a seat. Take a seat, please, can you please sit down
so that when you come in from that higher anger management techniques, and I'm sure many psychologists have spoken about this,
going from that upper position to a lower position. So from standing to sitting, if you're sitting to recline, to come to your site, this is this is what you do. This is obviously going from a higher position to a lower position. And again, we find this in the Hadith which is in Sinan Aveda would, in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, if one of you becomes angry, and he is standing, they let him sit, his anger should go away, otherwise he should recline.
hamdulillah Islam has given us the solution. We know the problems, but do we know how to do with the problems. And this is why those who have the resources of the Quran and the Sunnah and the knowledge, they are able to deal with their dilemmas. And they're able to do with the challenges that they face with a lot better than those who do not have these resources at their hands. Very important to to gain this knowledge and then to start to implement this knowledge in shallow water Island.
So we'll handle the left.
We have remedies and other remedy will book in the Hadith which is found in certain AV there was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in the hobo bambina shape on a lot of angles from shavon in Nevada, mina shavon were in the Shavasana Holika Mina now let's have fun with credit from one from the fire.
What in the book fuel now believe
that the fire is extinguished by water they will not for either
About how to configure
when one of you becomes angry, let him or let her perform.
Very simple. Although it is very refreshing rejuvinating it extinguishes that anger that you have. So we find some Hana lower light when when a person is angry, many negative or many, there are many implications that result from anger. There are many bad situations that happen. So, for example, a person is angry with his, with his wife. And he's so angry that he's anger leads him to divorce. And he divorces her three times, you know, in some most halves, three times mean, that's it,
you know, three strikes and you're out. Although the correct opinion is if you divorce three times in one sitting, it's only counted as one, this is the more correct opinion,
saying amphiphile if you have divorce, you are divorced, you are divorced, three times in one match is in one encounters and you want some math have some scholars, they will give a verdict three is three, it's over an hour, you cannot be with each other. Again, why expect about if you're in a straight state of you know, utter anger and rage and you said follow up and you said divorce, then this is not a binding divorce, you know, there's a happy that
there is no
for that there is valid no valid divorce in a state of utter rage and anger.
And then you know, so, this is a key issue that was spoken about previously, but you know, families are destroyed because of anger, families are destroyed relationships are destroyed,
because of something that you say or you do, you know, in anger, valuable items are destroyed, people might break something that is very valuable, you know, they break something or clothes are ripped or what have you because of anger.
So, this is one of the problems are selling What did he say to that person is asking the person the Sahabi is asking for advice of all the advice I suppose I could have, could have given him he said do not become angry.
Now the third attribute of those who have Taqwa
Okay, is what I have seen and in this those who pardon others. So here are lots of talks about having the attribute of being forgiving, pardoning others, pardoning others.
This verse is very general. His verse is very general in terms of forgiving, so
do we forgive everybody? Anything that they do we forgive it.
No matter how evil that person is at sea, we forgive them. The answer to this is no.
One has to exercise cabe and be careful.
Because although this verse is general there is another verse, which restricts or confines The, the the general nature of this verse, When I feel an illness elsewhere in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala ensuited assura. So the Shura, verse 40. He says,
He says famine. What is the HA for a Jew who Allah for men alpha was Lucha the operative word here is alpha. So he says, But whoever pardons and makes any snap or reconciliation, in there has to be a good outcome out of the pardoning.
Let's elaborate on this.
Let's say for example, a person has made a mistake or has wronged you. But it was a very innocent mistake. It wasn't premeditated, very something I needed an oversight in haste, okay, forgive this person, not the nature not in their character before.
But if a person for example, very evil person, corrupt person, and he wrongs you, do you just leave him and without taking him to the authorities, or informing those that have an authority over him? Do you inform them? The answer is you do otherwise what's going to happen? He's going to continue with his evil to what to do. He's going to continue with the evil onto others. If you let him go, and he let him go, he's going to continue to harm people with his evil.
So this is why we have to look at look at the situation and take it and deal with it in a unique way. For example, car accidents. Somebody has a car accident with you
This person but you know, it was very innocent, they didn't, you know, they weren't doing anything silly or foolish to cause the accident, then you can forgive this person so you know what, just go I forgive you don't worry about it, you know,
May Allah forgive us, but if you know, for example, you see a person who is a, you know, a hood, you know, or a person who is, you know, doing something really foolish on the road burnouts and, and skidding and all this, you know, really doing silly things and he smashes, and he hits your car,
you know, are you going to forgive in this case, especially if he has a history of this? No, you can report him to the authorities here. Because there's a better out there, this person needs to be reprimanded, this person needs to be
admonished regarding so it doesn't hurt others. When we're talking about lives of people. We're talking about people risking their lives at risk here. So especially when you know that this person shouldn't be forgiven, because it's going to cause more harm and damage to others. They know if you know it's innocent, looks like you know, person shows that remorse and regret and you can see that it's something you've assessed the situation, it's up to you now you can forgive them in shallow and forgiveness is better will Athena and in this, this is the characteristic of emoticon.
analyst that concludes this area by saying what Allah who will love who you are in Allah subhanho wa Taala, he loves the doers of God, he loves those who do goodness.
Now who is well versed in in Allah loves my sense, and my sin is the one who's good to himself, who reforms himself, who betters himself,
who's always improving himself. That's I'm often doing the things that allies origin has commanded, keeping away from the things that Allah has prohibited. But then, I must say is also a person who does good towards others, and is also
doing good towards yourself and doing good towards others.
And when in the hadith of gibreel, when the prophet SAW Selim was asked, you know, what is said, and this is the highest level of ascent,
the highest level of assent, the practitioner of a citizen, right? And he said, it is to worship Allah azza wa jal, as if you can see,
and tabooed Allah kandla Katara to worship Allah as if you can see him.
So, when we're talking about here, sn and the worship of Allah azza wa jal, we're talking about loving Allah as origin, you know, yearning and having a unique for what Allah as origin has to offer, especially in the hereafter. And part of this worshipping of Allah Xhosa and part of his accent is also to fear Allah azza wa jal. So you love Allah, and you feel Allah, you feel the punishment that Allah subhanaw taala has in place for those who transgress his boundaries in this life and in the Hereafter. So
sn can be to oneself, between you and Allah, and Allah says is towards other people.
And we're talking about other people. There are again, two types of ascent towards other people there is doing good helping, aiding, supporting, okay with your money with your journey physically, with your words with your wealth, or it could be helping them refraining from the harm.
So even for example, with your words,
if a person says to you,
then you could say why they consider
or you could say widecombe salam wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Allah subhanho wa Taala, he says, is a bit of a thing for how you beat us and I mean, how do her if you are greeted with a greeting, then respond with a better greeting or just return it back? This is part of Sn. Even though when I make any spoke about if someone gives you a greeting, a better greeting, okay, let's say someone says to
you know, you could just say, well,
you haven't really given a you haven't given an extended greeting, in terms of when it comes salam wa barakato in getting the 30 Hasina but you could I just having a more positive voice, you have responded in a better way that he has or she has greeted you by being optimistic by being positive.
Another example for example, if you see your brother, his or your sister committing a sin,
committing a sin. Then again, one of the best forms of
have sent is to is to advise them either directly or indirectly.
In Hadith in Sahih Bukhari the prophet SAW Selim, he said, help your brother also. Akaka volumen, our maluma any support your brother worry whether he is a violin, whether he is an oppressor or whether he is oppressed, help him even if it is to help you.
Either one of them, he said.
He said, you know, we can understand.
He said, but he said, we can understand your soulmate. It's alright to help him if he's oppressed. If someone's depressed, you can help him. But how do you know you help him if he's an oppressor?
How do you help somebody who is an oppressor, we help them as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he, he said
to Jesus who said, I would turn now Who am now who mean a woman, that you prevent him from oppressing others, by you, preventing him from oppressing others you are helping him.
So again, there are many ways of doing righteous deeds, good actions, whether it be through our saying and through our actions not in the manner with him Allah with Tyler, he mentioned a number of, of hobbies to do with the chapter of hazing to do good. I'll just mention a few of the Hadith inshallah, inshallah, we'll conclude inshallah, with some of the Hadith that have been mentioned.
The first Hadees he actually mentioned as a hadith of Abu Dhabi Allahu anhu. Or by Spencer Muslim.
He said the Messenger of Allah wa sallam he said, Be prompt, be prompt, bear the ruble, an early fifth and
fifth and an
illegal Muslim use before Roger loom Minh and William C. cafetera. William C. Macmillan. Why you speaker kathira Joby Oh, Dina, who will be out of Amina dunya.
Listen to this hadith. process, lm said be prompt, be quick in doing good deeds. In other words, before you are overtaken by turbulence, fitnah
fitness, which would be like a part of the dark night, really harsh, very hard road trial, and then would be a believer in the morning and turn to disbelieve in them in the evening. So you wake up as a believer, the trial is so hard that by the end of the day, you become a captain,
you become a disbeliever.
Or he would be a believer in the evening.
And by the morning, he'll become a disbeliever. And he would sell his faith for worldly goods.
So this Hadith, it tells us that the Day of Resurrection that the day of judgment will be preceded will be just before it, there will come a long chain of calamities, there will be some hardships and severe hardships, some trials
and because of the rush of these hardships and these calamities, the D the religion and the faith would lose their value in people.
And so people will be just racing towards you know riches to wealth. And the only people will be prepared to compromise their Deen
they'll sell off their Deen for some worldly gain some worldly pleasure. They'll just sell off the team.
As Ola has sent me when I first wanted to have mercy upon us during these troubling times.
In another Hadith, the hadith of rock that evening Harry for the loved one. He said once I performed the acid pray in El Medina behind the prophet SAW Selim.
He, the prophet SAW Selim, he caught up quickly after finishing the prayer with a slim and stepping over the people he went to one of the rooms of his wives quickly whenever the people went to the one of the highlights one of the rooms
and the people were startled at his haste. And when he came out and he saw their astonishment at his urgency, he said, he said I recalled that there was left with me some gold, which was meant for charity. I had some gold that was for charity.
I did not like to keep it any longer. So I gave orders that it should be distributed. You know?
integration. This is in Buhari. In other narration, I left some gold for South Africa in the house and did not wish to keep it overnight. So again, the prophet SAW Selim is showing us the urgency when there is something that needs to be done, do it quickly. Don't procrastinate. Don't just leave it sitting there. If it needs to be done, let's do it quickly. Especially if you have an Amana if you have a trust, get it off, you know, off your back and quickly discharge your duty with regards to this and then
and you know, usually like you know, when it comes to being in the masjid, and you know, stepping over people and you know, separating between them, this is something that's uncalled for but if it's something which is an urgent matter, we learn from this hadith that is something that is allowed. Another Hadith that you know, we included in this chapter, is the hadith of Jagger of your loved one who, who reported that a man said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during the Battle of offered the Second Battle of Islam.
The great battle told me where I shall be if I am killed.
He said to him, you know?
Where's Where will I be? And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He replied that he would be in general. If you were killed in this battle, you will be in jail.
For Anna Anna so find a few gentlemen, for all pa for tomorrow, it couldn't be here from MacArthur Allah Hakuna Matata, penality Buhari Muslim, he fought after he went he fought until until what until he was killed.
So he Topanga he had some dates in his hand, because I don't even have time to eat these eggs. I mean, how long is it gonna take it ate some dates. You got some dates in your head, you'll finish him and you know, move on with the job. And and then, if this is too long for me, if these dates are going to occupy me from, you know, getting to gender and becoming a martyr, it's too long screw the dates, March 4, and he was martyred.
So again, we see the passion of the Sahaba like a loved one, in striving to do righteous deeds, even in jihad, even in any any striving in the course of Allah azza wa jal
in another Hadees Hadees Abu Dhabi Allahu anhu. is hard. It's a phantom Buhari Muslim. They came in to the prophet SAW Selim said, Allah, Quran messenger of Allah, which charity is the most rewarding? I want to know which charity is the best.
And he said, the participant said,
he said, and the sadaqa and Tessa haven Shahe Han docshell fakra. What? Malvina, he said that you should give charity in a state when you are healthy. The best time to give sadaqa is when you are healthy, number one, and stingy you feeling stingy don't want to give and you're fearing poverty, you fear that I might become poor, fearing poverty, and you're hoping to become rich. That's the best time to give sadaqa for doing when you have those four Yani attributes about you.
And then the province Arsalan he goes on, he says, Well, to me, he had either Bella hottel, fuku pulchella Fulani, in Canada, where the Fulani, Casa La cannoli Fulani, tada, he said and do not defer or delay to give charity that you were at until you are about to die. And then you say this is for such and such. And this is for so and so. Okay, yet it has already come into the possession of so and so. So what happened some people they delay in their sadhaka they delay until they're on the deathbed and they actually die and they say look, this person will get this much and this person will get that person and this person will get that much. But guess what, that person is already
going to get that much because they are entitled to as a result of his inheritance.
And as you know, when you are you're only allowed to put in your will a third of your wealth. Okay, with regards to charitable organizations, a third and if you haven't done so, and you're dying, then you can't you know you haven't written up your Will you cannot then start to say who gets what actually died.
So this is why we shouldn't procrastinate if you have something to give, give it now.
Give it now you want to give towards you have some hamdulillah you have some wealth that's accumulated and you want to give to a worthy organization MSG the project give it now don't procrastinate
so this is the problem with many of us and we won't give unless we know we're about to die
and there's other Heidi's better. Mm hmm No, we included here.
And one of the ladies here he mentioned
had his Abba hora de la one who
promised us sell them again is uses the word bad to be quick, bad euro bill Anna Lisa.
He said hasten to do good deeds before you are overtaken. You were overtaken by one of the seven afflictions.
Then giving a warning he said are you waiting for such poverty, which will make you unmindful of devotion or prosperity, which will make you corrupt
or disease as will disable you or such senility as will make you mentally unstable or sudden death or at the jail who was the worst expected absent all the hour and the hour will be most grievous and most bitter.
was so sad to have a sad to add to her What
is headed which is found in telemedicine and autonomy it is basically saying what
is Yeah, and again, we have to be quick before facing obstructions.
You can become poor, you got the money now you might not have it tomorrow.
Or as you said you could become Yanni your prosperity might actually corrupt you, you might become rich.
And then your state of being rich makes you unmindful in thinking you know what I just want to be I'm happy with these riches, my benefits
or it could be that you have a disease that prevents you from doing good.
once you do what's best to improve,
he's here after by means of good deeds
before one is deprived, one shouldn't hesitate before an obstruction comes about. These are the words I leave you with the lots of panel who were to add as best and ask allies origin to make me to make you from amongst those who are hasty towards doing good deeds, righteous deeds, meritorious deeds that will benefit us in this life. And that will benefit us in the hereafter. Also love we'll send them over a cannon abena Mohamed Salah monokuma Rahmatullahi wa barakato
