Both cinematic and
unreliable alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shafi moosonee Cena Mohammed by the early he was sorry he is very
So, in sha Allah made me later I will continue with the same tonight the drought that we were studying or have been studying for the last two weeks and this is the third part tonight. So tonight we'll focus on two concepts that we mentioned in this show Kuru Nima will ascend Filiberto, gratefulness to Allah Subhana, WA Tada, and excellence in motion. So these two concepts were mentioned this were actually the third part of the DA is where as Luca shukran aromatic was named Eva that I asked you for the capacity or ability to be grateful for your blessings. Whereas Luca, shukran, aromatic Allah give me the power to be grateful for your blessings. So here we'll talk
about the concept of a shocker so Rasulullah sallallahu was advising his Sahaba or the allowing him to make this tour and ask Allah subhanaw taala for this virtue or this ability of being grateful for his favors.
And the Quran declares the one declares that few people are truly grateful to Allah subhana
wa kalido in a bad year, a shocker we have this idea in Salzburg. Los Angeles says in it and few of my servants are grateful and that's why one man at a time of photography used to make a deal out alone, which led me to Allah include me, within the few chosen and then on top of the Allah and who did not understand these two at a time, he said, What is this? He said, Yeah, I mean, and what we need are prints of the believers, Allah, Allah says worker Lee will mean revert the shadow, a few of my servants are truly grateful. So I want to be one of them. I'm asking the last panel dad, to include me in this in this group of people.
And shocker nerima we were we
it's an advice that was given to more admirable person allies and allow Alia was in them in a very interesting, very loving way. He gave this mercyhealth or this advice to his friend, more out of the blue shovel. So more after the Allahu anhu Here we call her an individual Salem VAD. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam held his hand, whereas the punishable was a great Sahabi senior Sahabi from an answer. He witnessed the pledge of the second acaba in Makkah. And so he was one of the early Muslims from the local people from Medina.
And also last SLM, sent him to a Yemen to be a judge and a ruler and a leader in the area of Lehman to teach the people of Lehman Islam and he used to be specialized in
actually my alma mater one time he said, Whoever wants to know about faculty should go to arrive at measurable and he's one of four people that are so lost, I still advise Muslims to go to them and learn from them, the Quran, the proper way of reciting the Quran, so he was a scholar, he was one of the scholars and as soon as as soon as is to respect him and love him, so in this occasion, he said what he said
he held his head, and he said the Mrs will lie in Nila or her book.
The old wives by Allah I love you. Love for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala because of these qualities of a man and tequila and knowledge, as soon as I sell him used to love more, if not the allowing was he was one of his best friends. And he said it two times and this is a great honor for Morath. Imagine also, let's assume comes to you and said here fula I love you. And then he gave him this advice. So he fully grabbed his attention, where I would never forget this conversation that took place between him and also lies I sell in this story. So like I said, told him later than we do both equally salad and taco lahoma in yellow the creek, we're sure correct, was nearly balletic. He
said, Do not Rasulullah saw Selim, he said Do not forget to recite at the end of every prayer. Sometimes it is translated after every prayer, and I don't believe this is the right translation because they are giving one option by saying after every prayer, they are given one option, which is to recite this to her after the salad is completed. But there are many rules that they said Actually, this could be recited at the end of the salad before you say
Before you say seller, this is the other option and that is a preferred by highly qualified scholars. So maybe the best translation would be to say do not forget to recite this to at the end of every prayer. What is the dura? Allah a Neolithic Ricoh Allah helped me to remember you were Allah Shu Creek to give you thanks. We're talking about thankfulness here was nearly balletic and to worship you properly, with worship you in the best way. So this is a lesson seldom taught his best friend, more of the lower end before he told him about this to her. He said don't leave it Satan every salaat. Before that, he said, I love you for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. So it was a
special occasion. As soon as I said I wanted him to memorize this. And it is a guidance that is given to the owner of Mohammed Salah myosin.
Now, there are some benefits about this Hadith, the story of man, number one, and we know that Mohammed Assalam O Prophet was the most honest and most truthful person, right, he was the pinnacle of human honesty, and sincerity. So he doesn't need to make an oath, if he says it without any oath. Because he said by Allah, Allah, He needs a book, right? He doesn't need to make an oath, we would believe him if he doesn't make an oath, he would believe him, right? But he's teaching us that it's okay. Sometimes if you want to emphasize some meaning, or emphasize a statement, then it's okay that you use the name of a massage parlor or make an oath with a name of philosophy. In general, we're
not supposed to use the name of Allah subhanaw taala on a daily basis, on a regular basis, whenever we want to say something we say one bar, or by Allah, we're not supposed to do that. But here in this story, the story is showing us that it is permissible at times to say it to swear by the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you want to emphasize, you want to show the importance of your statement.
You want the other people who are listening to know that you're serious, and you're confident about what you are talking about. And this is very important. Take care of it, pay attention to it. So that is the Aigner from his oath. Annie Salatu was Salam in this in this story. And it also shows the extreme importance of what this application these two concepts, gratefulness to Allah subhana wa tada and also
the concept of excellence. So we'll do today inshallah, we'll talk about this concept. When you talk about gratefulness. We should know that Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran that gratefulness is a way to attract what abundance is he clearly May he Allah, Allah made it clear that well, what if then our bukem let him Shackleton let us see the nickel. So remember when your Lord has proclaimed This is a lost her data addressing the prophet SAW Selim remember when your Lord has proclaimed that if you are thankful or grateful, our show surely increase my favorites upon you. So this is a promise from a last panel. The only thing is that you know, you should know as a Muslim,
if you want this abundance to attract this abundance, you should know what are the ways what are the ways you should you you will be grateful to our last panel and how do you think about panel data for for his favors? Who should know about these things? And we'll talk about some of the ways tonight inshallah, we should know also that some of the great messengers of Allah were described as grateful servants of Allah. One of them is new Halle Silla.
Know how they said I'm in Surah israa. He was described as a grateful servant of Allah inna who abdomen in her abdomen Shakira. Indeed he was a grateful servant to Allah subhana wa. And I checked the Tafseer of this idea for many times, so it's extra, trying to find something special.
Why was he described as a grateful servant? Why knew was described as a grateful servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala is very important. We need to know, right? And all the books of tafsir saying one thing, they said either can either let me say thoburn Hamidullah were either achernar for Ironman Hamidullah what either Sherry Russia Robin Hamidullah, they said whenever he
eats of food, he would think the last panel wherever he was something you would think the last panel at and then when we eat were supposed to set hamdulillah the Amana
was a corner was Alan Aminu slimming? This is beautiful to add that you say at the end after you finish your food or we say hamdulillah lady family her that was a canny lady howling, wala quwata Mini. So these are beautiful do as you find them in Sahih International Muslim, the forces of the Muslim, the way of thinking the last pettalia after you finish your food, or when you dress up when you wear something. So that was the habit of no Halle Salaam. When you look at it, it's not something big right? Everyone can do it.
So I was looking for something special. Maybe it was praying like the whole night, fasting every second day like they would on a cell I'm doing something special. All the books of Tafseer are saying that, that was his habits know how they sell and a great messenger of Allah. And he was, you know, described as a messenger of a great determination. You know, they said, All as me me know Russell, when we talked about them last time. The prophets are messengers with a great determination. We said there is an opinion that they were only five no Halle Sarah Musa and Isa Ibrahim and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Another opinion they said they could be men, all
prophets and messages could be included, could have this quality, which is a lasme great determination, Allah and we're not sure about it, but glue is one of them. There is no doubt about it. So you can see what it is easy to please Allah subhanaw taala is not difficult. There is a famous Hetty that is Sahih.
Muslim and he also recorded this hadith and Eman Muslim, he said and the Nabi sallallahu Sallam called in the lower layer of law an elaborate yeah cool aquatalia Shabbat Shabbat of a meadow who Allah
this headings means that I must have
been saying for the last panel attalla is pleased with a servant who praises him when he eats.
Or she, he or he praises him. When the the drink something so you eat something and you praise Allah practically doing something praise Allah and Allah is pleased with you.
So don't belittle any good deed. Some, some other yeah and some peoples or Muslims or many Muslims believe sometimes that they cannot do an extra step two please Allah subhanaw taala they are satisfied with obligatory you know, deeds. I mean they do the five daily prayers and the first day Ramadan they give their Zakat and they said I cannot and they feel like maybe they are not good enough some of them right. But there are many ways to please the last panel data and this is something very simple. Anyone can do it. We eat everyday we drink everyday.
Everyday we need to you know to feed ourselves whenever you feed yourself when you need to thank Allah subhanaw taala and Allah spirit Allah will be pleased with you.
When we study the story, look at the story of look man in salt Look, man in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala told us about the hikma he told us that he blessed Look, man, look man was was not a prophet was a pious man. He was African. He said he was from the Sudan which is in south of Egypt. But he was an African pious man, Allah. Allah bless him with achema he lived at the time of busara illallah Anima, which time buttonless patella told us about his knowledge, and about his wisdom, and the first piece of wisdom that is mentioned in the story of local man and he sent out his last panel. If you go to sort of man, the top of the page load the talking about the second page, talking
about the story flockmen his conversation with his son, Look, man having conversation with his son, and telling him about what to do or how to live a good life. You know how to lead a righteous life and then a lot but Allah subhanaw taala in the beginning he said, Well, I could attain a lot man and he can matter. anish core Lila, whereby Yesh, Cofer in Namah Yesh guru, Lin FC said Allah subhanaw taala we had certainly given Look, man is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala wisdom and we said Be grateful to Allah. And whoever is grateful is grateful for the benefit of his own self. Which means Allah subhanaw taala does not need our Eva. He does not need I mean, if you make a statement, Alice
Patel is not in need in need of the statement of gratefulness. But if we do that, if we say that if we develop this habit is for the benefit of our own selves. Now, Allah subhanaw taala in this space in sort of man described the wisdom of local man through this conversation that took place between him
And his son, and Lockman was advising his son. So he, the first thing he advised him to stay away from shirk. And he told him that shear is a major sin or is a major form of injustice, Zalman avviene, he told him about some qualities of almost prioritized attributes of Allah spread over time, he advised him to establish the prayer again, it's common to solid, be regular with your prayers. And he advised him to enjoin what is good and to forbid what is evil. And then he advised him to be patient in the path of doubt. When you're advising people you need to be patient, you I mean, you don't
expect people to be smiling at us all the time. And this is not the reality mean this is not sometimes you deal with nice people. Other times, you deal with other people are not nice. They don't accept from you, they don't listen to you. And they might actually reject your your, your message or your invitation, or your data, you'll see her in a very harsh way sometimes. So here, look, man is advising his son, to have this, you know, determination and patience in the path of doubt, and to avoid arrogance and self admiration, and also to follow the path of moderation
in general, but the first thing that was mentioned about love man was gratefulness, the top of the page. So all these things are what an explanation and reflection of his wisdom, or his gratefulness, Allah subhanaw taala. For this, I taught him gratefulness to be grateful servant of Allah. And then he told us about these things like man advising his son to follow, you know, to establish these things to do these things to you know, this is how you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is how you lead how you live, you know, as a Muslim on this earth.
Prophet Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was also described as someone who was grateful so here we have great prophets and messengers, who described with this Allah subhanaw taala told us that these people have this quality, Ibrahim inshallah. Allah told us about him Shakira and the army is the VA who had in US Ratan Mr. Kane that he was grateful for his favors, he chose him and guided him to a straight path. Now what are the ways of thinking the last panel what Allah
Muslim scholars have indicated that sugar can be shown in three ways? Number one, sugar of the heart chakra.
And what is shocking of the heart is to believe that every bounty that you have, or every fever in your life is from Allah subhana wa, Wimmer becoming niramit infomine Allah, Allah Subhana Allah says, and whoever and whatever you have a fever, it is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Forget about your skills for both forget about your intelligence, forget about your education, forget about your whatever you have in this life. It is from Allah paratha this waterless Patel is saying in salt in the head, there is a great there is a strong connection between
a nanny and Allah the favor from us by the favors of Allah subhanaw taala. And between sugar and salt and
there is a very Allah subhanaw taala talked about a lot about his favours, and about the quality of gratefulness, of being grateful to Allah subhanaw taala. So basically don't take anything for granted. Now we take many so many things for granted. And we don't think you have any we have easy access to water, we have easy access to healthcare we have I mean, if you if you are hungry, you just go turn on your car, you go to somewhere, and you grab food very easily. We don't think about it. You don't think that there are many people who don't have food on the table. They're not able to bring food on the table. We don't have access to clean water. We forget about these things. And we
don't I mean, I personally I believe that humanity will face some tough times in the future in the near future. And we will appreciate we will come to appreciate the nilima that we have now we have an easy if you compare a life with a life of those who will before us just 40 years 50 years ago. It's totally different. We love to Allah has i mean i don't know if it is a blessing or not. It depends what Allah Allah gives you money gives you wealth, and your life is easy. It could be a blessing, but it could be a Nicola Nicola, Nicola is the opposite of a normal, it could be a sort of a punishment when the person does not pay attention to the name of Allah subhanaw taala or where the
person uses the name or the favors of the last panel.
Allah in disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala
using his name his favorites in the wrong way, and this is no this is a form of copper copper in Arabic is not disbelieving, only rejecting the name of Allah subhanaw taala in Arabic language is called also cofra Nia any rejecting or denying the favors of Allah subhanho wa Taala
The second type of shocker the said sukru alisson involves celebrating the praises of Allah subhanaw taala expressing your gratefulness attached to the near Mattila Allah subhanaw taala commanded that as soon as SLM will be near matira bkf, a hadith he said, You know talk about the name the favours of Allah Subhana Allah upon you. It's okay. And you when you talk, you attribute everything to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if you made in a sheep making achievment said hamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah has made it easy for me to do this and this and this. I made a transaction I made money handled I made a profit in this in this business. So we attribute everything to Allah hamdulillah was finished
my degree on time, it was able Allah made it easy for me to finish my degree, you know on time or do this or this or this hamdulillah Allah is making it easy for me to go to the salon to the masjid and attend the salata with the congregation with Gemma, she attribute everything to Allah subhanaw taala and this is sugar and Lisa sugar of the tongue. So had to be near metal beanie. I mean, they're talking about the name of Allah subhana wa
and we attribute everything to Allah subhanaw taala this will be a way of protecting your heart against you know the disease's of arrogance and self admiration.
The third type of chakra the ruler Medici choco jawara Shakur of limbs, so use your body in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala that's why when the last pattern addressed the people if they're rude, the family of the olden surah Sabbath, what did he say? A Manu Allah The Buddha chakra, a man who work we said work all family of Deadwood in gratitude. So yeah, you cannot just sugar cannot be a lip service, right? He just he cannot just talk about the name of Allah subhanaw taala without showing or doing anything, to obey Allah subhanaw taala to support the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala or to obey Allah Subhana Allah in general. So you have to act upon this knowledge.
That's why we say knowledge and action are twins of faith. This is a famous, you know, logo that some organizations are using twins of faith, they mean knowledge and action, they work together and they go together. Now excellence talking let's talk about the second concept which is exceptionally bad because the Dr. Russell as I sell them was Luca shukran, aromatic mercenary medic, I asked you Allah
to give me the ability or the power to be grateful for your blessings, and to worship you in the best way all properly so this is an essential letter. Let's talk a little bit about an ESN the concept of an ESA and we as Muslims we are instructed to do everything we do with sn with excellence and skill, because also last SLM said in the famous Hadith and this hadith is one of the 40 Hadees in Allah catchable sn Allah cliche in Allah catchable sn adequately Shay, Verily, Allah has prescribed said in everything and the examples that you mentioned, slaughtering an animal
he said even if you are slaughtering an animal do it with accent.
Do it with an accent don't slaughter an animal in front of another animal to their feelings.
Don't sharpen the knife in front of the animal. He said it's a second death you will you be killing him twice. If you sharpen the knife in front of the animal. So and then you need to sharpen it because you need to do it very quickly. I mean, it's you need to make it with ease. Yes, you're you're slaughtering the animal but try to do it with yourself. And that's the example Rasul Allah says, and this is part of his wisdom and in salatu salam.
You know when you talk about sn you expect us to talk about extending Salam coming here and doing solid with hoodoo and Roku and Sood making Moodle in the best way. I mean, these are all types of Sn Sn is included in everything right? But there are some lines and seldom mentioned sending the least expected
matter which is a slow
An animal people I mean, don't pay attention to this. I mean, this is the visa I need to prepare this the visa they don't they don't think about doing it with sn slaughtering an animal with SL but as soon as I said M is mentioning this example to tell us that it said could be included or should be included in everything we're supposed to do everything with with SSL.
And and by looking at this hidey hole and the and the Nazi hat that was given to more as rhodiola hunter we might conclude that sending a VEDA was it you know the passion, our profits a little low? It was silly. Now what are the benefits of sn? Allah subhana wa tada Allah loves the people who have said, this is number one. In the law, Hebrew masini Verily, Allah loves the people of sn are the tools of good it is usually translated as the doors of good but when we say excel in Arabic, we talk about excellence or perfecting our deeds or doing doing things in the best way. Number two, Allah subhanaw taala told us that He grants his support and his help to the people were set in Allah Allah
Vina Taka will levena who mercy No. So this is in sort of the natural again, Verily, Allah is with those who fear Him. Of course, we are talking about the positive feel. Usually fear is mentioned in in a negative connotation. But when we talk about feeding the last panel to Allah, this is positive. When you feed a loss palitana you don't run away from him.
What do you do when you feel Allah?
You go closest to him subhanho wa Taala. Right. In case you're a bear that you obey Allah subhanho wa Taala you love Allah subhanho wa Taala more, so they go together.
But when if you feel someone else, a human being you run away from him, right or if you feel a leader or an army or any anything that is harmful, that you know, you conclude that could be harmful. You run away from it right or from him or from but the loss of habitat when you feel the loss petrodollar, you become a better Muslim. So here Allah, Allah is saying that he will greatly support grant his, his help to those who fear Him and those who are the doers of excellence or is do good. When we worship Allah, Allah will.
Actually what we are doing, we're fulfilling the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because in Surah nalle, again, Allah Subhana said in the La Jolla Morrow, Bill idli will, sir, Verily Allah enjoys the doing of justice and the doing of Sn. So it is a command from the last panel down and here the question comes, is it an obligation
is an obligation because when we talk about sn, usually people get the impression that you're talking about this, the extra acts of a bear that we do, you know, it's not about the obligatory acts of worship, you're not talking about what you are supposed to do.
We suppose about we're talking about the things that if we do them, then our a bother will be perfect will be pious people will be righteous, but we can be satisfied with a minimum and we will be okay. So is sin worship will not their own Emma, there are two types. They said there are two types of SF, there is obligatory SN and these voluntary SF method and kindness to parents. Is it a volunteer for my son or obligatory form of ERISA? It's an obligation you need to treat your parents with kindness.
You cannot be rude if you say to your parents, when they talk to you, it's a sin.
If you mistreat your parents is a sin, then it is an obligation upon everyone of us everyone to treat his parents with kindness and this is a form of SF for example, paying Zakat on time,
every year we will calculate your Zakat and you pay the full amount on time Is it a form of Excel or not? It is a form of Excel, but it is an obligatory form of saying because you have to pay the cat but if you pay an extra amount of money,
another donation it makes a donation which is a regular salary or you don't have to do it, but if you do it it is another form of another level of sn but the second one is not an obligation. It is what it is recommended. It is recommended level of SL voluntary level for my For example, one we are praying when we pray making suit when making suit if you say what is the obligation, how many times you need to say Subhanallah bill Allah for example.
One time is enough. So the minimum is one time Yes, that's right. If you know if you if you say it one time, then you fulfill the obligation of saying Subhana Allah annual suit. What is common is three times Many people think that three times is the requirement. Three times is not if you say it one time or two times it's enough, it's okay. But what is the best way? Or what is the best number? The Sahaba tried to count how many times that also less SLM is to say Subhana Allah. And their guess was they said their conclusion. They said he used to say at around 10 times, that is his choice and a solid answer, but this is a form of Excel. Whether you say it five, you say 10 times it's up to
you. You make your suit longer, you say extra Dude, this is a form of accent, but not every form of sn is obligatory, this is what I'm trying to say. So there are two levels of Excel obligatory form of SN and volunteering level of sn or form of SN and the more you do the more you get closer to Allah subhanaw taala and you become a better Muslim and nothing is lost with Allah subhanaw taala in the law Hello over you as you're immersing in Allah Subhan Allah to Allah does not you know let you know the last patella appreciate the efforts of the people of SL actually he created life and death for this purpose. So Tabarak what is the eyes or Tabarak will live the Hala Cal motor will hired
he's the one who created their son life which purpose what is the purpose of creating this life? Live Luaka. So to test you, so we are being tested the one
everything you see it happening now is a test is a test whether it is you are having good life, or you're suffering in Africa or Syria or Kashmir or Myanmar. Everyone is being tested and the people who are watching what is going they're being tested because they are supposed to stop evil. They are being tested everyone governments, movements, individuals, everyone is being tested in this life. You given something you need to use it in the right way. This is your test. So Leah blue welcome this water loss. Patel is saying to test you which of you
Leo blue Welcome to UConn Cinerama, which of you will perform the best of deeds. So it's a sort of word of competition.
The competition the people who are coming to the massage, to pray the five daily prayers, they are competing
with each other. There are people in mind I have seen places in the compete to go to the first slide. The first row, they come early, and you feel like they are competing. Yeah, neither people person who comes in he's sitting in the second row or the third row, he's kind of upset and he wishes like to find a gap and to go to the air, I've seen these things hamdulillah This is something good. So good competition will be very carefully at an office and with NFV soon.
Sn also in a fee. What emphasizes what confirms the extreme importance of sn
is that sn was the last I would say the last
there are some eight who were revealed after that. But I would say because of the importance of this Hadeeth the last admonition of gibreel and a salon to this oma
gibreel iclm came and this is the head of Jubilee in Tonga headed up here came in the form of an unknown human being 80 days or 83 days between 80 to 83 days before the solar system passed away.
It was a very important meeting. Very interesting event gibreel nslm coming in the in the form of an unknown human being
talking to us hula hasulam in front of the Sahaba and this is the only time he came to us hula sillim in this way. He used to be he used to come in an invisible way. Most of the time, sometimes he would come in the form of D here l Kelby a Sahabi. From an answer. He used to be handsome. sola sola gibreel used to come sometimes in his form.
But this is the only time 80 days before the death of wrestlers SLM GB came to us last SLM and it is like a final message or a take home note.
He was able to fully grab this the attention of the Sahaba they were amazed. This man has dark hair and nice clothes and he's not one of the local people. None of us was able to know
him. They know they didn't know him. And he came and he started asking he started asking is he sat down in front of Rasulullah Salah, and he said, Yeah, Mohammed, Islam bringing in even when you're NSN talking about yourself. So the third question was about in SF.
And the last question was about the hour.
And I want you to help me today to find the connection. What is the relationship between the first three question and the last question, but the third question is about SSL.
So the the rudimentary said these are levels, the three levels of faith,
the three levels of faith, we started with Islam, when we become Muslims who say they're in a high Mullah shadow laner Hey, Mama, were shadow under Mohammedan Ave, who were asuna. And then we start praying the second day, no obligation. So this is Islam, we do this external act, he man is to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala believe in his messenger and his angels in the Day of Judgment. So this is a second level or higher level when you maintain and you master those talents of faith. Your Eman will increase you become a better movement. And then if you want to move to a higher level, then you need to aspire to be a Moxie should Your goal should be to to be a person. And what
is the definition that Russell SLM has given or gave in this Hadeeth in this story, he didn't tell him about sound wise, you've been this is your son, Mr. hub? And he didn't give him different types of Sn. How do you teach your parents how do you do your salad, I mean, that would be the list will be very long, right? As soon as I seen him was given the ability to convey the message
the convey the message with with the minimum number of words, and he would mention a short sentence. But this sentence would be fully loaded with big meanings. The Bulava.
Salatu was Salam. So he said he gave him a beautiful definition of SN and terrible the market and NACA Tara for a local lamp to control refine who Iraq, he said that you worship Allah spirit Allah as if you see him. And this is the highest level of ESET you worship Allah subhanaw taala, as if you are able to see this is the highest level. And then he gave him the lowest level in the same within the same definition. He gave him the highest level of action, and then the lowest level of action. He said, If you do not achieve the state of devotion, then take it for granted that Allah sees you.
So you worship Allah, if you're not able to achieve this highest level, then at least do not miss this level here, that you worship Allah spirit Allah while keeping in mind that he's watching you, and he sees you.
Right and between them could be different levels that our solar system did not need me to mention. So this is a very comprehensive here definition, this is the highest level and this is the lowest level of Excel. And between them there are different levels. But if you go beyond below the lowest level, then you leave the zone of sn you're not immersed in anymore.
If Allah Allah is not present in your mind, when doing things for you thinking about other
people who are present, we try to impress other people who will then you leave. There is all of a sudden you need to come back, remind him. Yeah, he makes it fun. Try to struggle with your with your intention and try to correct yourself. Think about the last panel without to try to impress the last panel dad instead of impressing other people. So as you can see one.
If you if you try to be a machine or a masina then you will be able to fulfill a major duty of our D because as I said sn was one of the main questions
were asked by jabril at a ceremony he asked us all as I said during that great meeting with Russell Lai sallallahu Sallam mentioned the three levels of faith, Islam Eman and so on. So what is the relationship between these three questions? And the last question
because what was the last question about the hour?
He asked him at the end. Like it seems like they are not connected right? Islam and email and if they are connected, because when you move to a different level, the high level Muslim movement and then mersing right. But what is the connection between relationship between these three levels of faith and between the hour
when you're running out of
Time, now, you're gonna run out of time.
You need to enhance your Islam and a man in Canada because you have a short period of time to live in this, this earth.
Because when you die, it's your hour. It's your tm, mine of Tiamat. They call it P i made a good point.
And I expect another answer. But it's a good point is that
these are the things that people are now, between the viewers and the non believers.
When when they when they sign of the hours,
maybe these are the things kind of distinguish between the believers and non believers in the Islam and he met and said,
I mean, yeah, the people who witnesses to the hour are not Muslims, just to let you know, Allah Subhana, Allah will send the wind to before the final hour. And this wind will take the soul of every believer or believing men and believing woman on earth, they will not witness the final hour.
But of course, they will be resurrected.
And Allah subhanaw taala will resurrect everyone for the judgment, final judgment. But what I feel here, this is a personal opinion. That's gibreel Ali Salah is telling us there is a message here. So he mentioned these three levels of faith. You need to enhance these three levels of faith, because you need to prepare yourself for the hour. So it's like the ultimate goal is that you prepare you're doing all these things.
You know, you believe in Allah subhanaw taala you're praying, you're doing there, we're coming to the masjid building massages, trying to be a good Muslim for one purpose, because he needs to prepare yourself for that time.
Because when this happens, it's called what? The meeting with a loss Are you going to meet the loss penalty? That's why in the Quran Allah talks about leka Allah Lika Allah, the meeting with Allah. So when the hour takes place, we meet a loss penalty basically.
So we need to prepare ourselves. Now when we talk about
Sonia one. I would like to mention
here, Ursula sassily mean this to her. He mentioned that essentially by the law, my name is Luca shukran. aromatic was Neri magnetic. So when we talk about Riba, we talk about our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, I would like to give you two practical steps to follow the path of Sn.
And I need to be frank with you. And if you want to be a mercenary, you need to start with these two things. One thing we're going to talk about tonight, the other thing, we'll talk about it next, next Friday, inshallah, that will be the final halakhah for this program for this Hadith, because the next Friday, we'll talk about the purification of the heart. And what are the major problems that we need to pay attention to the major diseases of the heart, and how do we deal with them.
And also sit can listen, but the heart is more important than everyone knows the importance of being truthful saying the truth, you know, but when it comes to our hearts, it could be very challenging sometimes to correct some of our intentions, or some of our feelings that we have as humans right towards other people or the way we what kind of intentions were supposed to what kinds of feelings we are supposed to entertain and maintain in our hearts any we need to take care of our hearts. Now. But if you want to take the path of Zen
Zen in rabada, if you want to enhance or strengthen your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala, I know of two things, you can start with the number one, you take care of your salad. And this is an external power act of worship. The other thing is an internal act of worship, which is in class, take care of your heart. We'll talk about it next week. And a class in security. Sincerity is worship is an obligation, and we'll talk about and how to inshallah to develop sincerity. And what are the struggles there are many people who struggle with their intention and say, I feel like I'm not more or less I'm not sincere. I'm doing things for the sake of people and how to deal with that.
Are we are they supposed to stop doing what they are supposed to do? Because they want to avoid these feelings, right? There are people who stopped to stop coming to the masjid because they said I don't feel that I am sincere.
Or to get involved in derawan the community and help them they said, No, no, no, I think there's something wrong in my heart. So they stop. They stop being involved in Dawa. They don't stay at home and they said, this is not the way this is what actually shaytan wants you to do.
And he will be he will be actually you are, you will be defeated when you when you decide to stop doing what you are supposed to do.
So we'll talk about these things in Sharla next week, but the salaat will focus on the salad salad, you want to be a mercenary, well, you just need to forget about the technical you know, rulings the rulings of salado Gema Salatu Shama is it worship or mooster hub or fourth key fire I want you to forget about this. When it comes to Salah to Gemma praying in congregation I want you to pay attention study about the lifestyle of Rasulullah Solomon his Sahaba their the way they perform their five daily prayers. But before we talk about the five daily prayers needs to take care of your taharah you need to make sure that you are doing the Hara properly you will do your washing.
Right. So this is the first thing before you start because it's a condition. If you don't have the proper taharah your salary is not is not accepted. So you want to be Merson basically lie to Allah and follow the path of excel in this field which is solid in this area. So number one is your taharah to perform you will know in the best way number two learn the rulings of salad. There are many people who don't know a can salad. They don't know that too much Nina for example, tranquility, taking your time with every movement is why is a rock is a rock and is a pillar in the salad method sitting between the two sides. Now, I have seen people who don't sit down, they don't take their
time. They make a session now. They go back a little bit they raise their they rise to a certain level. But we don't sit completely and then they go back to the second session. So there are some doodads that we are supposed to say in that position. You need to be fully seated before you go back to the next session. So this is to Manila these are part of Tama Nina, which is tranquility and at the marina What do any what is the highest level of Romania what is the minimum level? At least at least you should do the minimum level like method when you are making suju What is the time?
What is the timeframe and how long you are supposed to
you know stay in that position of prostration or recall. If you say so parlor, bl Allah one time soprano, that's enough. That is a minimum requirement of Tama Nina. So saying one expression of Vicar would be enough with me later. But I'm saying here in For example, this position of sitting between the two sides does, if they don't fully sit, then they don't mention anything there is they don't give themselves time to set up differently, for example, or a big failure or how many there are different to us. The best one is you combine between seven to us, for example, mcfeely or how many odd was Bernie laughing he was joking, he were funny and these are beautiful draw, asking Allah
have mercy on you to forgive your sins, to you know, fix your affairs, to guide you to give you provide for your risk. These are beautiful to us. And listen to us. Allah says Allah means to teach to any new Muslim anyone at his time when he accepts Islam, He will teach him these things. You know, he says use this to us. And one time he taught once a heavy one someone who just accepted Islam. He told him this do this do as simple to as that we know and we say them all the time when he left, as soon as SLM told his Sahaba that this man has filled his hands with goodness, many ad hominem hail. That means you know he got something good, very good, excellent these to us, because
one of my friends will accept the user you will be you will be an ally to Allah successful.
So learn the rulings of Salah there are many people who come here all the time, they ask about the rulings for people who don't care. But there are people who are concerned with these rulings of the NBA or all the time asking, you know, how do we do sudo? What is the proper way of making record? Is this right? Right or wrong? Are we supposed to say this or not? There are brothers
and sisters, but there are some other people who just Yeah, I heard people saying your listener, her listener only you don't want this listener
saying to someone, the people were two people were saying like you lead the prayer. And the other one who said no, no, you lead the prayer and the other and the third person was upset how soon How soon I and II just get rid of it.
Get rid of it. It's like a burden that you are you're getting rid of it I mean, what is this this is a solid you're communicating with the last panel.
As soon as I sell them in the comfort of his eyes was in solid curato
solid that was his happy moment when he stands up in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala anyway
pray the voluntary prayers many of our youth young people, they are satisfied with the freedom so the sooner pray does not exist in their terminology is not part of their life which is wrong. We need to train ourself what is the benefit? Yeah, yeah what what is the wisdom of prescribing I would say Rasul Allah says in a prescribed level upon his oma these volunteer prayers, what is the wisdom of this this extra prayers
the protect the mandatory prayer This is a good point. So if you if you have the intention or is part of your daily habit to pray the sooner prayer So, what if you take care of the sooner so, automatically you will be taking care of the funny though, right? Because Yeah, I mean, it doesn't make sense if you take care of the son that he is neglected for either. So usually, if the person the person takes care of his son the prayer he will be busy later taking care of his father and those who like to come to do the Sunday in the masjid, they will come to the message for the free that but if they are planning to pray, the sooner so they will come early, and they will might have
a chance to pray in the first row. Right? This is one thing, what is the biggest pigma or the biggest benefit is
to cover our mistakes in them and deploy one, okay.
That's right here. So, is the cover for the mistakes and on the Day of Judgment, the first thing you will be taken to account for is your salad. And the last hotel will tell the angels Look at his for either
If it is not,
you know complete
and try to fix it with his voluntary praise.
Because Allah subhanaw taala wanted you to be among the successful people right among the winners. So, the first thing is the angels will look at your salad for either if it is not complete, there is something wrong with it. Allah will tell the angels completed with his Look at his volunteer prayers, there is no sooner than your salary will be incomplete and no one can claim that his further is perfect. No one we all think about other things. Right?
You cannot say you cannot claim that I have for sure. From the moment I say Allahu Akbar, till the moment they say Salaam Alaikum Can you claim that we are humans and we know ourselves right? It's actually against our human nature. But we try to struggle for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala to concentrate in our pray and focus and have this crucial so offer your volunteer praise or worship provocatively or 12 or 10. So if you follow the opinion that says you know there are 10 but if you do 12 it's better to have which means you have to pray for a cause before the two and two before the four and two after those that six two before physeal that eight, two after Margaret that's 10 and
two after Russia that's 12
of course you don't you cannot forget about Luther
Luther is very important to the last one and a half or three rockers five rock as you do them at night.
Offer your daily prayers in the message dear one, and if you don't have a car you're not able to go to the message now try to make it one of your goals future goals.
As soon as I said we used to pray his Salat in the masjid
and the Sahaba all the best habit that we know the best names all of them. His best companions used to offer the Salah, their five daily prayers in the masjid
and yeah when to know if you if you are a true believer, you don't want to have anything
in common with a Manasa t with the hypocrites. What did Allah subhanaw taala say about the hypocrites Illuminati, in Salah in salt and he said
he said in the moon African accordion Allah hadou will either combo in a solid car muku Santa
euro una NASA will AF Karuna la la carrera. This is a 142 incidents in Nisa in this ayah Allah subhanaw taala said that the hypocrites think to deceive Allah but Allah subhanaw taala is deceiving them when we stand for the prayer this
lazy, lazy, they're lazy, when it comes to offering their prayers.
So these times with laziness, they wish that they don't do it. But at the time, Allah says, These people had the problem of major hypocrisy, major hypocrisy. People who have major policy problems major in Pakistan, not Muslims, but they pretend to be Muslims and he pretended to be muslims for a reason, right? They wanted to create problems within the Muslim community in Medina, and Allah, Allah told us about the equalities in the Quran. So we stay away from this quality is one of their problems is that they don't go to the salad with excitement with desire with love. They are lazy when it comes to offering their salad.
So you as a Muslim, you hate to have something in common with hypocrites. With ammonia, if again, you don't want to be like them. So you have to take care of yourself that you have to do it with love with excitement. You do it we're hoping in the reward of Allah subhana wa. They will be among the people who will be successful on the day of judgment and in the different headings that isn't Buhari Muslim, russula Salah for example. He said he told us gave us an information about alliteration, so he said in F Kala Salatin and Muna 15 Salah to Elisha or Salah to wherever we are Allah Muna Murphy, Hema and I tell him I have one. He said the most difficult prayer for the
hypocrites. You don't want to be like them, you don't want to be one of them.
The most difficult prayer for the hypocrites are Salatin, Asia and salado.
And he said if the only knew what is in them Yanni, the greatness of the reward, what Allah Allah has prepared as a reward for Salatin first, for those who performs a lot first, and Salah to Asia. Let me tell Huma 101. He said they would have come. So Ursula system is talking about people leaving their houses. That's why I'm telling you one the importance of Salatin Salatu Gema, we would have come even crawling. If they come crawling Yanni, they said, Yeah, because of importance of the Salah to salats. Even if they have they had to come crawling, they would do it.
And I've seen people like that I have some some people who do have special needs. They had some physical
disabilities will lice haven't It's amazing. The person like almost crawling, leaving his house going to the massive and he was a senior member. I saw this in Medina with my eyes, the Medina for Prophet salaallah Newson, a Senior Brother.
He could be at 70 years old, and he had a major disability he couldn't walk and going by himself
by himself leaving his house all the time I spent time in that neighborhood. And a watch this man leaving his house going through the masjid for every prayer.
So there is no excuse. I mean, when it comes to Salah if you are able to come to make it at the mercy try to make it part of your daily program. If you can't, Allah subhanho wa Taala will not take you to accountability later. But I'm telling you, this is the heading of Rasulullah sallallahu. He said he would have come to and of course this this message is for male members of the community, female members of the community is better for them to offer their salad at home talking about the five daily prayers, but if they pray in the masjid, that's okay, that's fine. But it is what is preferred for them is to offer their Salah, but there are there are Muslim scholars who said it
could be an obligation, an obligation upon male members of the community to offer their salad in the masjid whenever it's possible. Of course if they are far away from the mercy or they are eating or they're sick or they are not able to make it then Allah Subhana Allah knows you know, it knows their conditions their circumstances, but you need to and if you are buying a house will renting a house will have my advice, make it easy for yourself and your family rent a house or buy a house beside them as is not beside the message in the same like street will learn this is not possible all the time. But at least within a short period within a short you know distance you can make it to the
masjid within five minutes, seven minutes 10 minutes, it will be easy otherwise if you live far away from the masjid then it will be difficult I mean you will it will be difficult for you to make it on a daily basis. And that was a sunnah of Rasulullah Salim So you start with you solid one. And then of course, as I said Allah subhanaw taala has prescribed sending everything
Talk about our relationship with our parents with our family members a lotta rhyme with the way we do business we stay away from Riba we don't cheat other people. So sn is everything actually should be part of our daily life whatever we do, we should do it with ourselves. But I'm talking here about our relationship with Allah
that's why I talked about salad. If you want to improve strengthen your relationship with Allah, this is what you start with going to the masjid taking care of your salad perform your salad in the best way number one a second word try to develop the the you know the sincerity class we will talk about it next Friday inshallah Vivi later on when we talk about the purity of the heart, because it is mentioned part of this. So now we learn this to one and we learn tonight the dual of more and what is the DR Maha Allahumma inni Allah the creek Vasu Creek who has Snake River that if you say that the end of the salad before we say Salaam is good, if the Imam does not give you a chance to
say it before you know he doesn't give you time. That's okay if we're praying by yourself, you can say it
when you're praying by yourself, you are the You are the mean of yourself. Right you manage your Salah the way you want.
And also, if you miss it before you don't say it before the seller said after the seller.
You know after I prepared this hell up and I looked at the story of morale I felt like because I don't say it every day. These two I felt that there was missing something. This is an important day that I knew about it from long time ago. But they felt like these days that you know I missed I was missing something important. This was very important. La Miami Allah the creek Washoe Creek was in a bad attic if you can memorize it to add that we do have our program it's long but it's a beautiful too. It's as I said it's comprehensive to include you know, many things if you can memorize it and say it in your salon or spa session used to say it in his salad. Or at least you say it when you
make sure I include it in your diet that would be good. Because one of the things to improve your Salah is to learn how to communicate with Allah subhanho wa Taala in the best way.
Learn how to communicate with Allah. If you speak to a live you communicate with Allah in English or Ordo it's okay Allah Subhana Allah knows all the languages but if you arise this beautiful to us then that is better with the lighter better and I am I know many Muslims who don't speak Arabic but they are hamdulillah able to memorize many to us because they are able to read the Quran and recite the Quran then it will be easy for them to memorize the different to us it's the same language right is not difficult, you write it down or you go to some books as the Muslim that are translated in English you provide sometimes it sounds alliteration how to say it and pronounce it is not perfect
all the time, but you can ask your email Am I saying it in the right way? And and it should be inshallah deepening that should be enough for you should be easy to as I said, I think what they mean it used to be easy inshallah to learn this beautiful to us. She has a co located and we have two minutes before we pray actually not to make the other. So do you have a question will only make the other? Yes, very quickly. The process of the heart?
How do we do it? Right? Well, it's a long subject you have to study about
how to make your own how to clean yourself.
Some people say
you say Bismillah that's okay. You say Bismillah it's not to say Bismillah before you start you Although you can say it in your heart if you are in the washroom. That's okay, say it in your heart. And then but that's one Miss Ella regarding the Hara. Hara is a big subject. It's a big chapter here. What I mean is we need to learn these rulings. She has come a long way.
