00:00:01--> 00:00:15

maraca here he is translated as watchfulness, watchfulness, Allah. God Almighty has different names and attributes

00:00:16--> 00:00:21

as Smith and siefert names and attributes are smart and C fats

00:00:23--> 00:00:33

that are befitting to His Majesty. And from amongst the names of Allah azza wa jal is a Rafi. Rafi is

00:00:34--> 00:00:39

the one who is ever watchful over us for over his creation at Rocky.

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

Now, there are two types. When we talk about Murata and we look at the text whether it's the or and or the swinger, we see that there are two types of moral fiber. The first type of maraca is whereby

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

we as human beings,

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

conscious of Allah azza wa jal

00:01:03--> 00:01:30

and that we are conscious of him and that we are contemplating him at all times, that we are remembering him and that he is watching us. So we're always conscious of Allah azza wa jal in everything that we say and everything that we do and everything that we believe in. We're conscious of God Almighty, our Creator Eliza's origin, so this is the first type of maraca

00:01:31--> 00:01:38

that we are watchful of Allah, not that we can see Allah xojo because we cannot see Allah azza wa jal, and

00:01:39--> 00:01:42

none no human being ever saw Allah as origin.

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

Not even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:47--> 00:01:58

al maraca. The second type of maraca is a maraca whereby Allah subhana wa Taala is watchful over you or over his creation,

00:01:59--> 00:02:09

where Allah is the therapy, Allah is watching over us. So these are the two types of maraca now in the Quran in a surah chapter

00:02:11--> 00:02:25

soret will asert in verse 62. Allah azzawajal says, What can Allah while cliche in rafidah What can Allahu Allah coolish, I interrupt

00:02:27--> 00:02:37

that and Allah is Ever watchful over all things. So there's the proof from the poor and that he is watchful over all things work and Allah, Allah cliche,

00:02:39--> 00:02:45

over all things he is watchful. So allies origin,

00:02:46--> 00:02:50

we need to remember that Allah azza wa jal is is seeing everything.

00:02:51--> 00:02:55

And one example that you know many scholars have given

00:02:57--> 00:03:09

that Allah azza wa jal can see and hear the footsteps of the black end, under the Black Rock, in the Black Knight,

00:03:10--> 00:03:21

if Allah azza wa jal can see that and he that then what can be said about other things that are more evident, that are more prevalent. So

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

watchfulness of Allah or a maraca

00:03:26--> 00:03:38

watchfulness of Allah over you is to know is to have shown knowledge happiny show knowledge, without a doubt, but Allah

00:03:39--> 00:03:45

knows about your actions when it comes to your sayings. When it comes to your

00:03:47--> 00:03:55

physical actions, your actions of your limbs, and when it comes to the actions of your heart, what is your belief?

00:03:57--> 00:04:11

Allah knows what is inside you. Allah knows what you're saying, Allah knows what you are doing. And he's watchful over all of these different areas. Now, in another verse in the Quran, it's in a chapter called azshara.

00:04:13--> 00:04:21

We find in verses 217 to 219, Allah azza wa jal says whatever Colossus

00:04:23--> 00:04:33

and rely upon the Exalted in Might, the Merciful have reliance, and Levy, olevia Raka pinata

00:04:34--> 00:04:50

who sees you when you arise now here, it's talking about when you Arise for the night press. You know, when everybody is asleep and you get up and you perform night prayers, you pray to Allah, in your home without anybody else seeing you. I'm like seeing you.

00:04:52--> 00:04:58

What's up on lubeck happy, sad God and your movements among those who prostrate

00:05:00--> 00:05:23

allows local he also sees your frustration he sees your pm and your pm is you're standing in the Salah, Allah mentions pm because this is a very noble position because this is when you are remembering Allah through the words of prayer. And so you reset your core and in the PM. And as you know it's not allowed to you're not allowed to recycle and when you're in sujood, when

00:05:25--> 00:06:13

you're not allowed to recycle and Qur'an is limited in the salary to the standing position to the PM. The security is also a very noble position. Because when you're in servitude when you're in frustration, this is the closest time that you are to Allah azza wa jal and this is what Allah Subhana Allah and the prophet SAW Selim, he mentioned that horrible Maya Kunal Abdu, min Allah who said, that the closest time that you are to Allah is when you are insitute. Because this is like, you are in a state of complete submission, where you have now placed your forehead, down on the earth, okay, in in humbleness and in servitude and in obedience and submission to Allah subhanho wa

00:06:13--> 00:06:13

Taala.

00:06:15--> 00:06:56

Now also, part of this maraca of Allah, being conscious of Allah xojo is being conscious that Allah he's that he he's anything that you say he's anything you say. And Allah subhanaw taala zakharov verse 80 He says, um, yes, una and learners ma Silva, whom wanna Bella we're also gonna let him to Boone or do you guys think that we hear not their secrets and their private conversations? Yes. In other words we do and are messengers with them recording Allah His Oh.

00:06:57--> 00:07:19

And there was an incident at the time of the prophet SAW Selim. But Sonia introduced me the first surah This is the 28th part of the Quran. Cada semi Allahu Allah Leti to Jacques De Luca sisodia. What does turkey in Allah? Allahu Yes, smell Bala. Yes.

00:07:22--> 00:07:22

This is a

00:07:23--> 00:07:29

there was a woman who was arguing, arguing with the prophesies send them about her husband.

00:07:31--> 00:08:04

This Gita that was taking place, Allah azza wa jal from above the seven heavens he heard that very argument that was taking place. Okay, so Allah azza wa jal, he is Oh, so we have to remember that Allah subhana wa Taala. He knows about our speech, whether this speech is good speech, whether it is bad speech, whether you say openly, whether you say it in secret, it will be recorded either in your favor or it will be recorded against you.

00:08:06--> 00:08:10

And this is why really we have to watch what we say. And in sort of,

00:08:12--> 00:08:18

verse 18, Allah azza wa jal says Marielle Tomioka owning Illa Allah

00:08:19--> 00:08:39

Bonatti that man does not utter any word, except that with him is an observer prepared, prepared to record it. We have angels, writing or recording in our registers of deeds of good days and bad days, what we are saying,

00:08:40--> 00:08:56

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he stressed the importance of speaking the truth. Islam is very, very particular about speaking the truth, no matter how bitter it may be.

00:08:57--> 00:09:12

Otherwise, much of the content of Islam can be questioned, such as the one such as the Hadith. Hence, we have very strict conditions for the acceptance of Hadith for example.

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

So therefore, we need to speak the truth, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said,

00:09:21--> 00:09:45

Montana, you know biLlahi when your mill FM that whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day last day solea coolfire run out? Yes, forever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him over speak words of truthfulness, or goodness or keep silent.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

So you either have something good to say or you don't say anything at all. And because this time we're going to be questioned about it. And this is why Islam is against the vices of the time such as well.

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

Such as backbiting Riba such as slandering Mima such as gossip, such as a slandering of or false accusation but then these are all vices of the tongue and lying caddy

00:10:16--> 00:10:29

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in tatoeba Yeah, the lol fu that COVID line leads, okay leads to corruption and corruption leads to the hellfire.

00:10:30--> 00:10:42

It's very important not to be liars. And some people they lie so much. So panela they become. They become what's the word when they become lies without even knowing it.

00:10:44--> 00:10:49

compulsive that's right compulsive liars. They become a compulsive liar.

00:10:50--> 00:10:59

So there there are people that are lying, and they themselves probably don't even feel that they are lying in him. Well, that's To what extent they are drowning in lies well,

00:11:00--> 00:11:09

compulsive lies. People lie about all sorts of things. Islam is against deception open of the eye. Even just you know a wink is to deceive

00:11:10--> 00:11:12

them as against all of this.

00:11:13--> 00:12:02

So we must be conscious of Allah when that we are out in public or whether we are in secret. And again, we must look into our hearts and expelled from our hearts know that Allah azza wa jal is watcher is watchful over us is forever watching over us that we need to know now we know that he sees our care, he hears our comments, he sees our actions, and he knows what's in our heart. So our heart is very important to be cleanse and detoxify. And so we need to expel from our hearts shift. Shift means associating a partner with Eliza legit, such as saying that Jesus that Isa is God or that's that's sure that's a foreman and Eliza does not forgive [???] that he is that you associate

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

any creation with the Creator.

00:12:06--> 00:12:16

In the Lucha, Lucha Pharaoh shabbiha una De Luca, Manisha, Allah does not forgive that you associate a partner with him, but he forgives whatever it is beyond that.

00:12:17--> 00:12:30

That's up to his machine up to his will. We need to read out and expel from our hearts watts showing off hatred and animosity towards believers and other and other vices in short a lot in sort of

00:12:31--> 00:12:52

verse 16, Allah subhanaw taala says what are called the Harlequin al insana, when Allah Mata was Swiss will be enough so when Akira boo la Haman had a little worried as it is worse, Allah azza wa jal says, and we allows using the plural pronoun here, which which signifies His Majesty,

00:12:54--> 00:13:13

and we have already created men and know what his soul whispers to him and we are closer to him. Then he's Jackie Levine, Allah azza wa jal is close. So, we need to remember to fix up our hearts before Allah will make our heart speak out on the Day of Judgment.

00:13:14--> 00:13:36

And once again, we need to be conscious of what lies our journey when it comes to actions when it comes to our sayings. And when it comes to our, our heart and our belief and our any the things that are related to the heart, and by doing so you have perfected maraca maraca. Remember we said there's a maraca you between you and Allah and a lot of you.

00:13:38--> 00:13:59

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you know had if God had in Japan when gibreel visited him in the form of a man, Gabriel, and he asked him about Islam and he man and he asked him about sin, sin. I mean literally accent means what means goodness. But in this context, it's different. Yes and and the process Elon?

00:14:01--> 00:14:15

was given the definition, budgetary and insulin, he said and taboo de la haka and Nikita that we have a duty to worship Allah azza wa jal, as if we are singing.

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

We have a duty to worship Allah azza wa jal as if we are seeking to unlock a Torah.

00:14:22--> 00:14:31

So when we do worship Allah azza wa jal, we worship him as if we can see him. But we know the reality is that we cannot see him

00:14:33--> 00:14:36

for inland taekwon Tara in Nevada

00:14:37--> 00:15:00

so you cannot see him but know for sure that he sees you. He's watching you. He's watching and listening to your every movement. And when the Muslim has this consciousness at all times, Allah is watching me, he see me my Creator, the one who wired me, program me, you know, perfected me in my ways, and

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

guided me, He saved me. So now when you're conscious of Allah, then you are going to be conscious of the actions of your tongue, the actions of your limbs and the actions of your heart.

00:15:13--> 00:15:38

In Saudi Arabia and Milan, verse number five, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in the law law, he show you one field of view I left to center, that indeed, from Alan, nothing is hidden in the earth, not in the heaven, nothing is hidden very cleavers very straightforward to absolutely nothing, nothing is hidden from Allah. And to

00:15:39--> 00:16:12

exemplify this, he says elsewhere in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, we're in the home Matthew Hola, havila Allah Maha Illa who why Allah mama Pilbara well Parramatta spokeswoman Joaquin Illa Allah Maha wanna have Petit bettin fi lumerical rld, when I have battenfeld automatic out of the while iraq been one is in a Laffy keytab in Moby in this verse, Allah azza wa jal says, and with him with Allah, are the keys of the unseen

00:16:14--> 00:16:20

none knows them except him none knows the unseen in the future except Allah azza wa jal, except for those things that he has told us about.

00:16:22--> 00:16:36

And he knows what he's on the land and in the state, now listen to this. And he says, not a leaf, not a leaf falls, but that he knows it. I didn't how many trees there are in the world.

00:16:37--> 00:16:47

And all of these leaves that fall from trees. He knows about every single leaf that is falling from every single tree in the world. He is alive.

00:16:50--> 00:17:08

He's not a creation, He is the Creator, he knows he's perfect. And he's absolutely perfect. And no grain is there within the darkness of the earth and no moist or dry thing, but it is written in a clear record he knows about every single thing.

00:17:09--> 00:17:28

So we need to remember this. And remember now we will get back now to the chapter here of watchfulness he mentioned a number of verses in he mentions a number of verses to do with Allah subhanaw taala is watchfulness and he mentions it says Allah, Allah Buddha Allah, Allah Dr. Rocca Hina, Taku.

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

Kotaku, Baka.

00:17:31--> 00:17:42

Sachi. Did we mentioned this one before we mentioned this area, another area he mentions, he says, well, who am I? Who am I in America? Well, who am I? Since it is Elijah just says

00:17:43--> 00:17:54

he says and he is with you. Were so ever you may be well who am I? Which brings us to this notion, which is not real and that

00:17:56--> 00:17:59

the scholars, they talk about Alice Mary Yeah.

00:18:01--> 00:18:48

That Allah is with us. What does it mean that Allah is with us? Well, who am He is with you? But what does it really mean that Ally's origin is with us? Well, who am I? Now, this must not be taken that Allah azza wa jal, his essence is with us, for example, in this room or in this earth, that confines alive zoa jen to his creation and Eliza Joe is over and above his creation, now, but he is with us with his knowledge, he has knowledge of all things, he is with us in His power his mind. He is with us in His authority, and he is with us when it comes, for example, to victory and support and aid and to prove this many verses to prove this, from the Quran in one verse,

00:18:49--> 00:19:18

verse 128, Allah subhanaw taala says in Allah, my Allah Dena taco well, Lavina whom are soon that indeed are Verily Allah is with in Allah her ma, ma la Vina taco those who have Taqwa those who see Allah others were conscious of Allah those who reveal Eliza region in the la mala Dena taco, when Latina who masino and with those who are performing sn goodness, righteous deeds.

00:19:19--> 00:19:27

So, Allah is with those who possess these characteristics who have Taqwa and who have accent. Now,

00:19:28--> 00:19:38

when Allah subhanho wa Taala commissioned he sent me a sent Moosa and his brother heroin. He sent them both to Pharaoh to fit around

00:19:39--> 00:19:48

Moosa and heroin. So, we've reread this and sort of for her and they, they expressed some fee

00:19:49--> 00:19:57

information confronting Pharaoh Moosa and heroine express some feet and confronting her around.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

So Allah subhanaw

00:20:00--> 00:20:17

What Allah says to them both, he says, Let the half letter hoffa in nanny nakoma a smart one. He said, fee not, don't have any fee in nanny, Mr. Akuma, I am with you both.

00:20:19--> 00:20:25

I he and I see, I he and I see have no fee and with you.

00:20:27--> 00:20:39

So we must believe that Allah azza wa jal is that is with his creation and that he is not in our presence, okay. And he is not part of his creation,

00:20:40--> 00:20:49

as visit belief out there, you know, that that states that Allah and His creation are ones is a false belief, it goes against the belief of others

00:20:51--> 00:20:56

but that he is above his creation above his arch above his throne

00:20:58--> 00:21:05

You know, one way or the other met me some brothers have have mentioned how to understand Allah is with us

00:21:06--> 00:21:32

without being right next to us or in our very essence in our presence. For example, an Arab the one of the Arab sayings is mesin nasiru onekama Romana mesin nasiru one nedjma Anna that we continued to travel and the moon was with us

00:21:33--> 00:21:52

and the moon was with us or the stars or the star was with us now does wherever you go is the moon right next to you No but wherever you travel the light of the moon is always with you yet the moon is where the moon in his in his fixed in its place.

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

So

00:21:56--> 00:22:10

in other words, the moon did didn't disappear. It wasn't like we we it remained with us the light of this moon continued wherever we went it was still with us. So Allah subhanaw taala is with us

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

and he sees us.

00:22:15--> 00:22:26

Now let us look at some of the Hadith some of the Hadith that mmm now we collected under the chapter of amaura cada watchfulness

00:22:27--> 00:22:42

the first Hadith he mentions, is the hadith of gibreel, which I'm not going to read because we've we've explained how distributed before about how jabril visited, the prophet SAW Selim in the form of a man having exceedingly white clothing, black hair.

00:22:44--> 00:23:19

No signs of travel could be seen on him. He sat in front of us and asked him about Islam asked him about him and asked him I asked him about the signs of when Isabel judgment the signs of the dove judgment, you know the Hadees okay the hadith of gibreel. So, in this hadith he mentions in this in this chapter, I want to say that this chapter watchfulness of Hana light has some really, it has some very important had its some very important Hadith are found in this very chapter, including this Hadees Hadees Ribbit, la Salim.

00:23:21--> 00:23:29

So he did mention, he did mention that this Hadith, because of it, because it does mention that the Cree of Allah azza wa jal

00:23:30--> 00:23:40

and that it does mention Sn Sn especially that it mentions the fact when the prophet SAW Selim was asked about sn, and then

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

it was sent his to worship Allah

00:23:46--> 00:23:50

as if you can see him. See him watchfulness.

00:23:52--> 00:24:02

Another Hadith here that he mentioned, is the heartbeat of Amazon bayala one Houma and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam call tequila hi Suma Quinta

00:24:03--> 00:24:09

se et al. hacer una de tiempo her wahala Vanessa behalten Hasson

00:24:10--> 00:24:12

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:24:14--> 00:24:50

and the hottest fan is still an activity. fee Allah. Be conscious of Allah wherever you are, do good deeds after doing bad ones. If you do a bad deed, because we're not perfect, we're going to fall into sin and error. If you do a bad date, then do a good day that will wipe it out that will cancel it out. The former will wipe out the latter and behave decently towards people. His plan teaches us to behave decently towards people is no need to have aggressive behavior.

00:24:52--> 00:24:57

So this hadith is talking about minor sins if you commit a minor sin

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

if you commit a minor

00:25:00--> 00:25:22

Since then do a good deed so you can wipe it out. And a lot else else in the court and he says in them has been added in the senate hipness, said in the senate you're gonna say that indeed, good deeds. They expiate they wipe out the bad deeds. So this conflict this hadith is complementing that verse in the Quran.

00:25:23--> 00:25:45

So it's not referring to major sins because major sins can, can only be forgiven by having sincere repentance and Stopping, stopping yourself from committing that scene, having regrets and remorse intending to do it again. These are from the from the manners of repentance that we spoke about earlier.

00:25:46--> 00:25:54

Now, another Hadith that is mentioned in this chapter of watchfulness is the hadith of Ibn at this club, the loved one Houma

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

and it is

00:25:57--> 00:26:01

a beautiful Friday. Another very important habit to always remember.

00:26:03--> 00:26:15

And this is where even our best was, was a young young boy. And he is now behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was behind the prophet SAW Selim on a writing animal.

00:26:17--> 00:26:45

And he says, the prophet SAW Selim, he turns to him, and he says, Yeah, hula hula is a young boy. Hold on. Yeah, hold on. Any Allah mocha kalimat. I'm going to teach you a few words can be met or not. I'm not going to give you a lecture. Just a few words, but I want you to remember throughout your life, and this advice really is not only addressing urban at best by addressing every single Muslim.

00:26:46--> 00:26:53

Listen to these penetrating words. Yeah, hula lamb in the wild a mockery of the law.

00:26:54--> 00:27:04

He said, he said, Be watchful of Allah and he will preserve you to protect you, you'd be watchful of him, be mindful of him, and he will be mindful of you.

00:27:06--> 00:27:10

For the law, yeah, for the for the Lucha tagit who to

00:27:12--> 00:27:25

safeguard his rights, and he will be ever with you. Whatever stir antifa Stein villa. And if you need assistance, supplicate to Allah alone for help,

00:27:27--> 00:27:47

especially when talks about that supernatural that will nobody can really help you. I mean, we're talking about can you help me move this box? Can you help me with this question at university or college not talking about this type of help? We're talking about things that really only allies the world can get you out of you know when you're in that really difficult dilemma situation that you may be in

00:27:49--> 00:28:23

either a dilemma What is this the antifa Stein beloved wylam, an oma which Tamar either aim for Okabe lemons or okay in the shade in a set of a hula, hula. And remember, that if all the people gathered to benefit you, there will not be able to benefit you except that which Allah had for ordained for you. So everyone got together, and they want to try and benefit you with something, believe me what he's saying here, if Allah subhanaw taala has an ordained for you. It's not going to happen.

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

Let's say for example, a person has cancer.

00:28:29--> 00:28:49

And all of the doctors in the world got together to try and treat this person to make him better if Allah has looked for this person not to be better do you think they get he's going to get better? It's up to Allah. It's up to God. God can make amazing things happen. Miracles happen, that's what a miracle is. It's a supernatural event.

00:28:50--> 00:29:00

And only Allah azza wa jal is the one who is able to produce these miracles he made. Some people produce them, but by the will of Allah He allows them to produce them.

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

So

00:29:03--> 00:29:15

again, if everyone was to get together to try and benefit you with something that will not be able to benefit you, unless Allah has decreed it for you. This is where we have to understand the power of Alaska's origin.

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

And then he goes on and he says,

00:29:23--> 00:29:40

what any stemmer or Allah a guru can be shaped lemmya ruca, inlab bisha in Quetta, Baba la vida, and if they were to get together and try and harm you, they will not be able, they will not be able to harm you, except if Allah has repeated for you.

00:29:41--> 00:29:57

You know, again, you know, you hear about some some person who has a minor fault. He dies, some minor forehead injury, and he's dead. And then you hear about another person who was shot. He shot in the face or in the head or whatever, and he lives

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

shot

00:30:00--> 00:30:33

sprayed with the bullets and he lives Allah has has not written up for that person to die now. Or it could be that a person falls as it happened once you've heard this story probably before a person falls from a seven, seven storey building, this is really this really happened. A person fell from a seventh storey building. And he survived. People gathered around him. And he couldn't believe that he's alive. He wanted to celebrate, he wants to go and buy across the road and buy some people some drink to celebrate as he's crossing the road, he gets run over by

00:30:36--> 00:30:46

many similar stories is happened even here in this country. I remember a couple of years ago a person is has a car accident on a main motorway.

00:30:47--> 00:30:55

He has a minor car accident, and he gets out of the car hamdulillah you know, nothing's happened to him, and he's crossing the road and he gets hit by the truck.

00:30:57--> 00:31:04

You know, happens a lot, but not too quick for you to die in this spot. But he has the quick view that to die in different spot.

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

So

00:31:08--> 00:31:13

rufiyaa kill a clan which affect the sauce and then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said

00:31:15--> 00:31:39

that the pins had been lifted and the ink had dried up. Everything's already been recorded in the prescribed or in the preserved tablet a lot of muscle in another in another tradition. And another another narration the process of selling he said this is a very important how do you finish the Always remember, very important Hadith. He says, If for the Lucha

00:31:40--> 00:32:07

anomic safeguard the commands of Allah you will find him before you to Iraq Illa he filled raha yarraka fishing? Remember him in prosperity, when things are going good remember him always things are going good in your life. Be mindful of him remember Him and He will remember you in adversity. If you remember him in during the good the easy times. He will remember you during the hard times.

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

adversities while an Anima lemmya con Leo saber and be sure that which you miss was not to hit you one that I saw but Colombia can leave the UK and whatever.

00:32:25--> 00:32:27

And, and whatever

00:32:29--> 00:32:34

hits you was never to miss you. In other words, what is the process and I'm saying here

00:32:35--> 00:32:40

that whatever didn't happen to you was never meant to happen to you.

00:32:43--> 00:32:47

If you didn't die in that car accident, it was never meant for you to die and that character.

00:32:48--> 00:32:58

But if you did die in that character, and it was meant it was no way let's say if you were meant it was decreed by Allah that you are going to die in that accidental in that foot it was meant to be.

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

So again, he's saying be sure that that which you miss was not to hit you that which missed you was never meant to get you

00:33:11--> 00:33:17

and that which he was never meant to miss you. It was aimed for you. It was right at you.

00:33:19--> 00:33:26

The Muslim This is why as Muslims we surrender and we submit and we obey Allah azza wa jal and handed in that Allah

00:33:28--> 00:33:31

so yes, there will be some trials and tribulations.

00:33:32--> 00:34:11

And so he goes on and he says, while an anonymous, Masada nassarawa and faraja malcode nursery Yusra beautiful Hadith, he says, Remember that the help of Allah is obtained with patience, patience, which is mentioned in the court and over 100 times Southern. You want victory. You want to be victorious over your own challenges or over challenges in your community or the world. They need to be patient. Why then, while an Unknown, Unknown, not so much,

00:34:13--> 00:34:51

that the hope of Allah is obtained with patience and relief emerges after distress, prosperity follows adversity. And hardship is followed by is if you go through a period of hardship, but there will be a light at the end of the tunnel. It's about being patient and waiting for that, for that hardship to be cleared for that cloud to pass. So what do we learn from this? How do we learn that? No one has the power to change the decision of Allah the decree of Allah azza wa jal, he has decreed that for you, it's kind of happen.

00:34:52--> 00:34:56

We learned that whatever trouble one suffers in this world, it doesn't last forever.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Don't think there's going to be forever

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

that

00:35:02--> 00:35:13

eventually there will be prosperity There will be happiness there will be pleasure. So be having be optimistic and open minded. Have a good opinion of Allah azza wa jal

00:35:14--> 00:35:22

and then we should always ask Allah azza wa jal and not ask anybody but Allah azza wa jal, especially when it comes to supernatural ways.

00:35:25--> 00:35:27

I want to move on to another Hadith, another prophetic gem.

00:35:29--> 00:35:32

And this is the Hadees of anus. And as for your loved one,

00:35:33--> 00:35:40

and as in this Hadith, which is found originally in Sahih Bukhari, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said,

00:35:42--> 00:35:53

so actually Anna sokola Han, who is saying, and as a great companion is saying, in the letter Amma Dona Ana, and here at the Kofi are unique Amina shall

00:35:55--> 00:36:00

not do her idea Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a movie.

00:36:03--> 00:36:29

Now this narration, and as he's saying it after the death of the prophesizing, he says this, he says you he's talking about the people of his time, you indulge in bad actions, which are more insignificant to you than a hair, while we consider them at the time of the Messenger of Allah Selim to be great, destroying sins.

00:36:32--> 00:36:37

So what he's saying here is, shortly after the passing away, the prophesied, sell them,

00:36:38--> 00:36:54

the fear of Allah azza wa jal, people's God, consciousness and fear of Allah had been reduced to such an extent that, that people no longer even the insignificant, very minor scenes, that

00:36:55--> 00:37:26

those scenes that were those scenes that limited in that time, and this time, they the Sahaba, the companions, including NSA would see them as something huge hit because of the less fear of Allah, people now treated them as insignificant. That's how, and that's only shortly after probably not even maybe 50 years after the death, of course, I sell them. Imagine now 1432 years later, what would the NSA if he was in our presence now?

00:37:27--> 00:37:31

And the sins that people are committed and heedless of.

00:37:33--> 00:37:49

So the fear of the less fear of Allah, one has the more disobedient he becomes to Allah azza wa jal and as the fear of Allah decreases, when becomes more bold, more bold, in committing sins.

00:37:51--> 00:38:09

Let's go to another Hadith, the hadith of Abu Dhabi, a loved one who is happy to stand beside a Muslim and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in the La hattah Allah Yeah, whoa, whoa, whoa, LA to La heeta Allah and yet to La,

00:38:11--> 00:38:23

La La La. The process lm said, Verily, Allah the Exalted becomes angry, and his anger is provoked when a person does what Allah has declared unlawful.

00:38:25--> 00:38:28

So again, when you commit unlawful acts,

00:38:30--> 00:38:34

these call for the displeasure and the wrath, the anger of Allah azza wa jal,

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

another Hadith another prophetic gem

00:38:38--> 00:38:43

Hadees Abu hora de la one, what Allah He said

00:38:44--> 00:38:47

that he heard the Prophet sallahu it will send them saying

00:38:48--> 00:39:14

and here he mentioned the story of the leper, the bold and the blind, the leper, the bold and the blind, I'm not going to mention the Hadith. It's a long Hadith a long story, very interesting story. We've mentioned this in one of the lectures that you can download from the website, inshallah to Allah agenda, the agenda for the story of the bowl

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

of a leper and the blind, or whichever way you want to put it.

00:39:18--> 00:39:23

And we're going to mention another Hadith that Mmm, no, we included

00:39:25--> 00:39:37

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, I'll tell you, Suman, Dan and epsa who were Amina Lima battle mode. Well, geez, oh, man, it's bad enough. So what I'm in

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

the process of settling said, A wise man is the one who calls himself to account and does noble deeds to benefit him after this. calling yourself to account accountability judging yourself and you are preparing for the hereafter. Only investing for this life but investing and thinking about your

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

Here,

00:40:01--> 00:40:17

and it goes on and he says, and the foolish well I urges and the foolish person is the one who subdues himself to his temptations and desires and seeks from Allah the fulfillment of his vain desires.

00:40:19--> 00:40:24

So, again, the importance of accountability, self accountability.

00:40:26--> 00:40:49

And that means desires which are not coupled with practical efforts are of no avail because Allah grants reward on good days, and not on your yearnings and desires which are not supported by noble actions you need to do the actions as well. Another Hadith and this is the last 30 forgot to mention from amongst the prophetic gems

00:40:50--> 00:41:10

under this chapter of watchfulness, Hadees Abu Dhabi, Allahu Allahu Allah, Timothy originally, he said that the prophets I seldom said, Men are men who sneak Islam in mud he Turku mela Jani, it is from the excellence

00:41:11--> 00:41:12

of a believer.

00:41:14--> 00:41:19

It is from the excellence of Islam, that he should shun

00:41:20--> 00:41:27

that which have known that which have known that which is of no concern to him.

00:41:28--> 00:41:39

Leave off that which does not concern you. In other words, mind your own business. Islam teaches us this concept of minding your own business.

00:41:40--> 00:41:52

And this is where we find unfortunately, you know, communities people gossiping and wanting to find out about what's happened to this person and that person in this couple in this organization, gossip.

00:41:53--> 00:41:55

Islam is against this.

00:41:56--> 00:41:59

And this is actually this is an actual principle,

00:42:00--> 00:42:23

a principle in Islam, a very important principle that one should avoid since this talk and actions, and that if one acts upon this principle, he can save himself from many sins and evils. Me personally, especially in Turku, mela Yani leave off that which doesn't concern you can't get involved.

00:42:24--> 00:42:31

So Pamela, we really need to train ourselves, I think to really stop from doing this when you're in business.

00:42:32--> 00:42:40

Because you can find yourself falling into some serious sin and error. So these are the hadiths.

00:42:43--> 00:42:59

That Mm hmm. We mentioned in the chapter of a maraca watchfulness, and we asked Allah azza wa jal to benefit us with this hadith and with these verses that we heard will Lakota Allah Allah sallallahu wasallam American and Athena
