as salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. While early he was a heavy woman who Allah, La Molina Maya and found our final vema antenna in NACA Samuel moody would dwell long money over the weekend I rely on fat or I'll be late when I've seen letters why why do I use my Robin Allah to superluminova is had a tenner or have been an amulet on curfman inika internal hub, ob straggly solder us silly only Washington La Plata melissani yokocho poly saramonic Rahmatullah everyone having the Lego brand mean is good to be back and good to be with you and just up from La Jolla for joining us hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen we

00:00:49--> 00:01:01

going to look at something different this Tuesday, inshallah, we will have more of the same topic in a couple of Tuesday's inshallah

00:01:03--> 00:01:58

the topic today is, is really interesting. It's made me really think, as I was thinking of the topic, and how they're Blimey preparing for the topic, and Eman ignore, are you in a book, it's a very famous book, he's talking about an agenda. And the book in Arabic is heavy, elaborate, for our times, it's basically the dry, the translation is driving the soul had the urawa driving the soul illa genetica for the reliability of rock to the abode of happiness. So the driving driving the soul to the abode of happiness, and the book is all about gender. So how long everything in gender and we are covering this in detail in our weekend class with gender Institute, but the point he mentioned,

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

beautiful,

00:02:01--> 00:02:15

it's a one paragraph, and he came in he was talking about gender. And what is the key to Janna. And he said in a very beautiful thing. He said everything in life has a key.

00:02:16--> 00:02:54

Everything in life has a key and I want you all to think with me. Let's not talk about Jana and hereafter and and the paradise and Islam let's talk in general, everything in this life has a key, which is so true. And the key is actually actual factual. A key, I hold it, or it can be spiritual, or it can be something not real, I don't see it. But there is a key for it. For example, the key to get to the house, to get to a house, I need a key

00:02:56--> 00:03:12

to have my car start, I need the key. To get into my place of work, I need a key that's off to get to a room to my room is a key. And regardless of the key, the shape of the key, but there is a key.

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

So everything

00:03:16--> 00:04:13

practically, I need a key to get into. And sometimes it's not practical, it's not something I hold. It's actually not even spiritual, we'll come to this, of course, but it is something not tangible, I don't see it, but has a key. For example, the key to happiness, to some people, for example, is a good meal. Right? It is no key. But the fact I have a meal and I eat it, some people will get very happy. So this kind of a meal or that kind of a meal, chocolate or coffee or tea or you hear people saying all I'm so happy this morning, I got my morning coffee, it's a key to the morning happiness. Basically, it's something opening something and he went into a matter of no time put like 30 or 40

00:04:13--> 00:04:37

keys to things. And we're going to come today maybe cover a couple of them. And we're talking about the key to goodness. And what I end you want to learn is I need to learn. So I can think of it and then I am going to short lock work to achieve it is number one, what is these goodness? What is these good things?

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

And what are the keys to these goodness, and I'm talking about in this life, I'm not going to talk about in the hereafter. So the first thing I was looking at is what is the word key mean? And again, I always like to go to the basics because when i think i think very simple and basic. It's made me think

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

deeper, and I look at things around me in a different way. So the first thing is what is the key? What is the key and I actually looked up the definition, the key defined in the dictionary. It's a small piece of shaped metal,

00:05:18--> 00:06:00

with incisions cut, to fit to fit the words of a particular lock, which inserted into a lock and turned to open it. In simple words, is a piece of metal. Of course, these days were way past the metal. Now it's a button. Now it's a piece of, maybe it could be like an ID, and then you just slide it all these are keys. But the original is a piece of metal has incisions or it has some openings, that it goes into air lock fit in it, you turn it and the door is open.

00:06:02--> 00:06:11

That's practical. Door of car door of the house, door of a room or the office adore.

00:06:13--> 00:06:18

The idea is the key is a reason to open something.

00:06:19--> 00:06:25

I need you to think of this. It's a key The key is a reason for something to open up.

00:06:26--> 00:06:59

Now, what is goodness, what is higher? What is goodness? Goodness is anything that is a quality basically, goodness is a quality it's something of being moral, virtuous, truthfulness, righteousness, ethical, ethical ness or ethics, decency, nobility, all these are good. These are good things. So keys to these things.

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

So every good thing in this life

00:07:05--> 00:07:11

and I'm talking about moral good thing has a key. Why do we need to learn this?

00:07:12--> 00:07:16

Why me as a Muslim, I need to learn this.

00:07:18--> 00:07:38

Because our Swati salatu salam said the following Hadith the Hadith is in urban magic, there is some talk about the strength of the Hadith. scholars say it's a weak Hadith because of the chain, one of the narrator in the chain, but the the meaning of it is right. And what did he say? He sought to set up? He said,

00:07:39--> 00:07:59

and I'm going to read it in Arabic and I'm going to translate and what we all need to ask ourselves once we read this Hurry, a question. So what is this heavy What is it the same same? Or so I decided to set up said the following in Amina nasci my fatty little hiree mahali lisha

00:08:01--> 00:08:14

What do you know mina nursey Ma Li ma t Holly sharp? Ma Li Akali hire for Uber, Eman? Giada la Neiman Jana law, lemon Johanna law Matthew

00:08:15--> 00:08:26

D. Wade on lemon Giada la Martha mfat he has Sharia lady. let's translate in Amina nasci. There is

00:08:28--> 00:08:47

are among the people among people. There are groups or people who are keys to goodness that's what he said that he saw that was keys to goodness and locks to evil.

00:08:49--> 00:08:57

Key to goodness and locks to evil. And there is or among the people

00:08:58--> 00:09:04

locked keys to evil and locks to goodness opposite.

00:09:05--> 00:09:11

And then he continued it his site was Salomon said for Uber glad tiding

00:09:13--> 00:09:41

good news absher as we say glad tiding to that person she or he or that group of people who are law made them keys to goodness and Whoa. And destruction and Omen a bad result to those who are the opposite keys to evil and locks to goodness.

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

So the question as I said in the beginning,

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

which one I am

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

Am I a key to goodness, or are we keys to goodness, are we are the opposite. And what how do I know

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

I am and

00:10:04--> 00:10:15

that person, she or he, who is good, who is key to goodness. And some scholars, define them as the following.

00:10:16--> 00:10:22

Goodness in general, everything that's pleasing to Allah now we are connecting

00:10:23--> 00:10:47

our religion with reality. Everything that's pleasing to Allah is good, is higher, as long as it is pleasing to Allah, this is for sure is higher, regardless what things are, regardless if the people around or the society disagree, as long as it is pleasing to Allah, that's good.

00:10:48--> 00:11:15

So how do I and you know, that I and you are keys to goodness, that's, that's also a sight or sound will give me and you glad tidings your will be me. And scholar says, one of the signs that a lot is pleased with the, with this servant, that he makes him a key to goodness.

00:11:17--> 00:11:36

So very commonly, we say, I know Allah is pleased with me. And what is the gauge in general, when Allah gives me things in this life. So I know Allah has pleased with me, I know Allah loves me. And that's not necessarily true.

00:11:38--> 00:12:09

The fact that Allah gives life gives dunya gives the material things in life is not necessarily a sign of Allah pleased with that servant or a long, long, that servant because Allah Swati sought to set up the meaning of the Hadith, he said that Allah gives dunya give this life, the beauty of this life, the money, the wealth, the status to the person he loves, and he doesn't love.

00:12:11--> 00:12:14

But he gives Dean religion to the one he loves.

00:12:15--> 00:12:30

So the sign that our last panel with either one of the signs that last one hour Tyler is pleased with me. And you is when he makes me and you a key to goodness.

00:12:32--> 00:12:39

And what is the key of goodness mean? How do I know I am a key to goodness? How do I know?

00:12:41--> 00:12:51

scholar says when that person who Allah chose to be a key to goodness, when you see him or her goodness is remembered.

00:12:53--> 00:13:16

You look at them and you feel good. You look at them, and you want to be like them. Remember the goodness what pleases Allah, not what society when you see them, when that person she or he speaks, they are key to goodness, what they speak, they speak, they speak goodness. And when they come, goodness comes with them.

00:13:18--> 00:13:32

When they come when they are when they are present in a gathering. They are they bring goodness with them. And when you see them, when you see them, you remember goodness.

00:13:33--> 00:13:43

When you see them, you remember goodness, when they speak, they speak good. And when they when they when their presence, their presence brings higher

00:13:44--> 00:13:47

and their face reminds you of our last panel, what

00:13:50--> 00:13:50

are we?

00:13:52--> 00:14:00

So for example, if I am in a gathering, and the gathering doesn't have to be specially these days with the COVID doesn't have to be physical.

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

If I am on a chat on a group,

00:14:05--> 00:14:09

what do I normally write and send

00:14:10--> 00:14:21

his people when they see my name with a message? Do they know this message is good. For sure. Oh, it's coming from this person. For sure this is good news.

00:14:22--> 00:14:39

Or maybe maybe not or the opposite. When I forward. This is very common these days. When we forward is everything I'm forwarding is a truth and is good and inviting people to good and reminding them of good

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

than I am a key for goodness

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

or the other way around.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

When I am with people talking, when I am in my place at work with my colleagues, Muslims or non Muslims, it doesn't matter.

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

Am I a person who always thought of this person? Goodness comes from or don't try to avoid her, don't be with her, or don't listen to what she says, than I am not a key for goodness, either I am a key for evil. And look what he said Ali salatu salam, they are these people when they are key to goodness they are locked to evil cannot be both. And when they are key to evil, they are locks to, to goodness, I cannot be both at this moment. At that moment, when I am spreading good. I am automatically right away. I am locking evil.

00:15:46--> 00:15:56

Spell Allah. So when you are teaching someone, let's say you're teaching your son, right, something beneficial, then you already have locked the door of evil.

00:15:57--> 00:16:22

So the first thing we want to all learn is along with our NEMA fatti have failed. Y'all Allah make us your ob amin and this is how we have to ask for ourselves, not only for our children and family, but number one is for ourselves that I am as long as I am living on this earth, that I am a key for goodness, people learn from me.

00:16:23--> 00:16:55

Good things, good things and I'm not talking about you have to be a scholar. And you have to teach everybody not necessarily somebody you they learn from you. When they are around you. They will learn something good pleasing to Allah, as simple as not wasting, not wasting water, not wasting food, not wasting time, something they they around you. So I want to be like her or him and that's him or her. What they want to learn is pleasing to Allah then you are a key.

00:16:57--> 00:17:02

And we have also to remember. Can you all also remember that

00:17:04--> 00:17:15

when you are a key to goodness, you will get the reward of everyone who is doing that good. Or Swati Sato Sam said this Adele caffarelli

00:17:16--> 00:18:02

the person who guide people show people, goodness, he or she is exactly like if they did it and done it the person who guide people show people would use the same word higher goodness caffarelli meaning exactly like the one who did it meaning he will he or she will get the same reward. So there is things sometimes I can do it, I can't for whatever the reason, I would love to do it, but I just can't. Right? But I guide people to this for example, I would really love to memorize the order. I really want to do that. But at this moment, it's not possible.

00:18:04--> 00:18:59

However, I get for example, a message very common, right? Or somebody posted something on Instagram on social media that there is this class for memorization, I can do it but I shared it with people and one person went and registered in that class starts memorizing you will get the reward because you guided them and inshallah Allah will open it also for you. So Allahumma john Nima fattier, how you fail your law, your be me, make me Make me a key for goodness. And that will bring me to the next point I want to say is before we say something, before we do something, before we forward something, share something, this question has to come all the time. Is this is what I am doing or

00:18:59--> 00:19:03

saying is this is a key for goodness.

00:19:04--> 00:19:15

Is this is through me. Goodness and good things and moral things will spread than I am from these people over Swati salatu salam said.

00:19:17--> 00:19:32

So I need to take a moment. Moraga, I need to observe myself when I'm writing when I'm texting when I'm responding. An email or a text or a social media is what I am writing or posting.

00:19:33--> 00:19:49

Is this is pleasing to Allah number one that's good is the way I am doing it's pleasing to Allah that is good. Then I am a key for goodness and at the same time I am unlock to evil for proba

00:19:51--> 00:19:58

glad tidings good news, whatever reward for those who are these people?

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

So that's number one. What I want to cover today is Who are we?

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

Who are we?

00:20:08--> 00:20:40

And what what are we doing to our family to our group to our, like smaller circle and bigger circle and bigger circle, each one of us, every one of us have small and a bigger and a bigger and a bigger circle. We have our immediate family, then extended family, we have our work circle, we have our friends, we have for like distant relatives or these are circles. What is your impact? If you want to use another word? What is your impact on these people? Good or bad?

00:20:41--> 00:20:44

Good or bad? Then you are the key.

00:20:45--> 00:21:08

So these days we have these people who are they call them social media influencers, influencers. They have a lot of people following these people, whoever they are, they are a key to something. Because there's a lot of people following them. That key opening which door

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

goodness or evil.

00:21:12--> 00:21:37

And me following that person, he or she popular? Am I following adore of goodness, or I am following the door of evil. I need to ask myself, because following is my choice. I choose to like someone I choose to follow. And I'm stressing on social media because that's what we are doing these days. This is our life.

00:21:39--> 00:21:40

Having finished this.

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

Let's move to

00:21:44--> 00:21:48

some of the good qualities.

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

Goodness for sure by the standard of a law and these good qualities has keys.

00:21:57--> 00:21:59

For example, one of the

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

keys that are Swati salatu salam and he used the word mustache. mustache is a key in Arabic.

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

And he said, Our Salatu

00:22:13--> 00:22:14

Mustapha Sana

00:22:16--> 00:22:20

That's what he said. He said, Mustafa sallallahu

00:22:21--> 00:22:37

alayhi salatu was set up. And it's an Imam tirmidhi. He said miftah hosana outdoor power. let's translate. The key for solar for praying is performing evolution model. What does that mean?

00:22:38--> 00:22:52

That to me, everything. There's so many meanings was I take one by one. Everything has a key to start something you need the key to start my Salah. I need what oh, no, no solder

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

miftah hosana up.

00:22:56--> 00:23:02

But now, this is something we all know. And even in fact, it's one of the one of the prerequisites.

00:23:03--> 00:23:18

But there is other things that is very immoral, highly loved by a loss Panthera we all of us know but I don't know if you know the keys to them. And I'm going to cover some of them today In short, not

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

the first moral,

00:23:23--> 00:23:31

moral and goodness we all want to and that is piety. Beer.

00:23:32--> 00:24:27

Beer, not the Aqua beer. What is beer? Beer is high level of goodness with a law number one and with his creation number two, including human beings and others LBL in our last panel Watada have described it in the Quran in plenty in many places. But one of the ones that came to my mind right now, Lisa bureaux into a loo Haku clybourne Misaki well, mahalo, Allah said this was sort of a cow bill is not to turn your face towards east, east and west were lacking and then he come and explained what is bear elbowroom and armineh Billa you believe in a law will your mill Day of Judgment What am I lacking the angel wonder beyond profits work well, when when Malacca to when they

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

been and

00:24:29--> 00:24:53

what I tell my Allah Allah hobby and then he gives money although he loves it and then he described to whom you give the money. They will call by relatives willing to tell about orphans will Misaki and those who are in need what Miss Sabina the traveler right and what I call Masato as a cat will move on to big media who performs Allah gives aka keep their covenant.

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

So this is really high moral

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

level.

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

I want to be, I believe in everything real belief. And I give money when I am in need to every all these categories, right? And I perform solo and I gives a car and I keep my covenant. What is the key to all this? miftah? What is with the hill buddy Allah, and I want to be a treat my parents very well. And I'm very pious person. And I do everything the right way that Allah loves.

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

Right? How do I do all that?

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

One key?

00:25:38--> 00:25:41

I don't know how many of you will know this one key for it.

00:25:43--> 00:25:45

And the key is to be truthful,

00:25:46--> 00:25:51

to be truthful, a second neftali bill, a subtle

00:25:52--> 00:26:17

and how did the scholars came to this? Who said so before if I want to say I'm not convinced, convinced me who said their piety. The key to it is truthfulness. And this is the hadith of roswaal salatu salam and this is another Buhari and Muslim or Swati Soto Sam said the following listen to this in Nasik Yeah, D you know we're

00:26:19--> 00:26:55

waiting a bit right? Yeah. d dijana. Waiting module is dope. Hector Dr. winder life so Dr. kariba? Yeah, dl for your webinar for Julia, do you know what you know? Roger leg the yoke up behind the Leica. darba. let's translate in a sitcom. Yeah, de hellberg. Look at that. Truth. fullness leads to piety, truthfulness, lead to piety and piety beer leads to Jana. Do you want to go to john?

00:26:56--> 00:27:25

Of course I do. Of course we do. Your ob I mean, be truthful. truthfulness will lead you to piety. piety will lead to Janette, I'm translating the hadith of rasa risotto Sara, we know Virgil and the human being she or he continuously to be truthful till he is recorded with a law your nickname soggy, truthful.

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

And the opposite is true.

00:27:30--> 00:27:36

In the world, kvb ideal for your and Linus are false hood will leads to vice

00:27:37--> 00:27:46

and vice leads to the Hellfire and the human being will continue to lie. Till he we will be recorded with a lot as a liar.

00:27:47--> 00:27:48

What does that teach us? Me?

00:27:50--> 00:27:51

I want to be pious.

00:27:52--> 00:28:26

I want to go to Jana. That's our goal. And I'm finding it very difficult. And we get I personally get a lot of these questions is what should I do? I really want to get close to a loss Pantanal. I really love this gene, but I don't know where to start. And this is the key, one of the keys. I want to be pious, what is pious, pious I am aware of a law does things that pleases Allah and me myself and this life is not number one, my Acura is number one, what should I do?

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

Be truthful.

00:28:30--> 00:28:34

truthfulness leads to buy it. What is truthfulness? Me?

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

I don't lie.

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

Word

00:28:40--> 00:28:51

in speech is speaking. lying. Lying is not as I always try to use this word. Lying is not in my vocabulary. Everything I say is true.

00:28:52--> 00:28:59

I don't want to say something. I don't lie. I just don't say it. I just stay quiet. Stay quiet.

00:29:01--> 00:29:18

lying. Lying is a key to vice and vice is the key to hellfire. truthfulness is a key to piety and piety is key to Jana. Which key you want. Which one you want to do?

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

truthfulness in speech, truthfulness in actions, truthfulness in promises, and truthfulness for the last panel what.

00:29:31--> 00:29:44

So when I have children, and I want to teach the child to be truthful, I cannot not practice what I teach my child. I cannot lie and expect my child will not lie.

00:29:46--> 00:29:49

Tell them I'm not in the house and I am in the house. I'm lying.

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

I left the house late. And I call I text and I say, Oh, it's a traffic. If there was no traffic. I left the house late in the

00:30:00--> 00:30:49

These are small things you may think what is the big deal? I mean, how much what is this gonna do lying and subtle truthfulness? And the Hadith is very clear. And there is no excuse to lie, a simple Yachty truthful truthfulness leads to Piatt key. So the key to one of the keys to German agenda has many keys. But when in this regard, we will talk about other keys next time that this one is being truthful, when it makes you pious close to Allah pantile. So the first step, you're going to say, Why do I start to be close to Allah subhanaw taala I am going to say what your what you are saying? Or what are you? Again typing or sending? Or what are you following? Are you following falsehood?

00:30:49--> 00:30:53

Are you following lies, because I and you will get affected.

00:30:55--> 00:31:01

So number one, the key to piety to Billy, is to be truthful.

00:31:02--> 00:31:04

My heart, and to clean inanimate bill money and they say, you connect the blessing you have with the source Who gave you the blessing. So my heart, look at the camera I'm talking to you now. And I see in that this camera was given by a law. Yes, I bought it, yes. But originally, Allah created it. And Allah facilitated it. And Allah made it easy for me to bring it. And Allah taught me how to use it. And Allah made it work, then I am grateful to Allah for the camera with my heart, I don't say I did it, I did the search, I went and bought I had the money than I did not connect the blessing with the real source of the blessing. And that's number one mistake we all do. The word I,

00:46:22--> 00:46:45

I, I did it. I worked hard know a lot with Baraka in my time, a lot with Baraka blessing in my effort that brought fruit than I am grateful. So number one, everything around me. When I see I didn't do it, Allah made it happen through me or through somebody.

He is the source of everything I have. And he's the one who allowed everything. I worship him only I obey him only he will give me plenty of reward. And

00:49:01--> 00:49:10
