Bismillah

00:00:29--> 00:01:22

snap, aim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala MV mursaleen avianna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Monica to be a son in law in the respected brothers and sisters, as you know that in sha Allah, it is a matter of few days and the first 10 days of the ledger will commence will start in sha Allah. Normally people speak about the virtues of these 10 days and inshallah, in this program in this show, we will be speaking about the virtues of these 10 days. But before prior to that discussion, I would like to highlight some important concepts regarding the virtues of good deeds, the virtues of certain days. I will like to conceptualize the

00:01:22--> 00:01:47

whole discussion about phurba erode among the virtues of good deeds and our role in this life. And even even from maybe you can say, a political perspective, our relationship as human beings, with the with the with the universe, why Allah Allah, Allah created us and these things that are related to this discussion.

00:01:53--> 00:02:38

First of all, mighty respect to the brothers and sisters, as we all know that Allah Allah Allah created us as human beings to worship Him. Allah Allah Allah says Allah tala g now inside ilaria Boone, this is an idea that all his colors, every single color, and every single Muslim I think, coats this idea that Allah Allah, Allah says, I have created gin and ins for one purpose which is what to worship me. Now, my dear respected brothers and sisters, if we analyze this idea, if we analyze this verse, then we will see so many questions, so many questions that need to be answered. For example,

00:02:40--> 00:02:41

the bad

00:02:42--> 00:02:54

to worship me. Now we know for a fact that the most righteous person in this life or the most righteous person that we ever read about him,

00:02:56--> 00:03:05

how much he spends on worshiping Allah, Allah Allah in the masjid in the mosque, or fasting or doing head.

00:03:06--> 00:03:40

Obviously, obviously, we will see that he used to spend a limited time in the masjid. He used to spend a limited time in maybe either a bad day activities and the rest of his time, he will be involved either in calling for a larger law or working to earn money to support his family. Many of the early scholars were business people like Imam Abu hanifa, Abdullah hidden Mubarak, even Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Allah tada and hope who he used to work to support his family until

00:03:41--> 00:04:29

the second Caliph, he told him what are you going? He said, I'm going to work in order to support my family, then I'm going to have no cop said no, no. Now you are appointed as the leader of Muslims as ameerul momineen as the halifa as the Caliph. You can't do this anymore, because you have no time for that. Then they agreed to give him a salary. And this is who this is Uber Casa de la No, in fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam worked for certain time and so on and so forth. Which means that the other activities that we are involved in the other habitual activities can be seen as a beta. And this is a very important

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

concept. Once we talk about a bad worshipping Allah, Allah Allah, we need to differentiate between two types of a Banda Please listen carefully. We need to differentiate between two types of a bad one is the specific a bad and the second one is the general a bat. The specific EDA is that about the all those activities that are heavily regulated by Sharia. Such as what such as

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

Care such as Salah, such as fasting, such as zakka, and then had which means the four pillars of Islam? Yes, these a that these acts of VEDA are heavily regulated by Sharia. For example, if we take Salah, we can't just pray as we want know, the when the where the why the how the seven main questions mean main W's these questions have been answered in details by Sharia. Why? Because they give the full picture about the ibadah they regulate the ibadah. So no one can just do any bad as he wants. No one can just pray the way he wants. No one can pray in any time. Yes, no one can change the style of Margaret Margaret is clear. Can we pray negative three because no one can pray mother

00:06:06--> 00:07:02

to five flocka for example, no one can pray into a direction other than the direction of the Qibla no one can just pray for any kind of reason. So this Eva is heavily regulated by Sharia. Okay, now, we call this as the specific Eva da or sometimes I call it as the listed a bar that they listed a bar that are there about that that you cannot touch you cannot alter because as we said they are heavily regulated by Sharia, Allah, Allah Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed us of how to perform them in details. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the authentic hadith Hadith, he said Mohammed Ahmed and laziale amarula hora, whoever acts or

00:07:02--> 00:07:12

whoever does anything out of our own matters or out of our own way, he will have it rejected.

00:07:13--> 00:08:03

And that's why the scholars spoke about the concept of what the concept of beta beta innovation, where you change that any of those questions regarding any of those acts, that were heavily regulated by Sharia or any of those a bidat or act that are considered to be listed there listed about that, the specific about that same discussion is to be applied on fasting for example, we fast the month of Ramadan, we cannot change it, we cannot say no let us fast the month of Muharram instead of Ramadan. Ramadan may come in summer as it is coming these days, it might come in winter we cannot say well let us say swap. No, we cannot also say we foster from father to Nazareth, let us

00:08:03--> 00:08:57

just widen it a little bit in one tectons maybe the time is very short. For countries who who are in the Northern Hemisphere, maybe they fast for three hours, four hours, five hours, we cannot say no that is not acceptable. That is not fair stuff. Federal law, literacy change that that does make it from for example 12 up to 12 o'clock, 12 hours. So this is fairness No, a larger law says what could overshadow the Vienna Lacuna Coil abdominal hated as a demon and federal eaten drink until the YT threat is distinguished from the black thread at the time of failure. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said when the sun comes up from here, when the sun disappears from here, and night comes from

00:08:57--> 00:09:29

here, after assign it is the time for the fasting person to break his fast and so on, so forth. So fasting was heavily regulated by Sharia saying the same thing is applied on zecca. The third or the second pillar of Islam Zakah is heavily regulated by Sharia It is one of those listed act, when do we give zakah how to give Zika. And what amount to give Zika has been set by Sharia.

00:09:30--> 00:09:41

Same thing is applied on HUD as well. Okay. And this is clear for all of us. So these are considered to be what listed by that.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

With those listed above that we find also the voluntarily sadhaka less heavily regulated, yes, less heavily regulated. Also we find the vicar of Allah, Allah Allah. Yes. Less heavily regulated. That's why there's

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

Allah said, the vicar of Allah, Allah Allah remembering Allah, Allah Allah mentioning the name of Allah Allah Allah is of two type. Those have two types. Mortlock, unconditional and conditional conditional which is linked to certain why, when How? Etc. Unconditional is open. You walk in the street, you say Subhan, Allah Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah Allahu Akbar, or do you just say, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, or do you just say Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah and so on, so forth. So, these are listed a bidat.

00:10:42--> 00:11:43

And we have that non listed about that, the general about that, which is what all our activities if we do them, for the right reason, for the right motivation, if we do them to please Allah, Allah, Allah, then those general activities, they will become what they will become a burger. And hence, once we do the listed a bar that and we do the general activities for the sake of Allah, Allah, Allah with the right intention, we do them to please Allah, Allah, Allah, those general Eva that will become what? Sorry, those general activities, habitual activities, yes, mandate activities, those they will be transferred to become what to become a bad dad, and then our life all of it will

00:11:43--> 00:12:40

become what will become a bad one Mahalo to denote an insert ilaria Budo. Okay, so that will make it clear. And then that there are of Abraham and E Salam that Allah Allah Allah mentioned to us in the Quran, when he said well in masala tea or no Suki or mahiya, Womanity lillahi Rabbil alameen wa shadrick Allah, Allah, Allah Allah said to Ibrahim, say, my Salah, my sacrifice my life, my death, everything is for a lot gelada. Now, why we mentioned this, it is very important to my dear brothers and sisters to understand this concept, which is what that a bad can encompass anything in our life, if it is done with the right intention, it is important My dear brothers and sisters before we

00:12:40--> 00:13:41

proceed to the next episode to remember that we have two types of a data the specific listed either that sala zakka cm and Hutch and with them is some other ibaadat such as the decree for Ludlow Allah and voluntarily solder cup and so one and we have that none listed about that they are the normal habitual activities, if they are done with the right intention, they become what they become act of a bad those activities they become act of a data. Now, the question is, is it easy? Is it easy to transfer those activities to become act of a data or not? This question is a very, very important question. And insha Allah who will answer this question in the next episode de la Ferran and see you

00:13:41--> 00:13:45

in sha Allah in the next episode saramonic Matala
