Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah the respected brothers and sisters, as salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa wabarakatuh. Welcome back to the show where we are discussing the virtues of the first 10 days of the mighty respected brothers and sisters, among the the activities that we can do in these 10 days. The specific activities that we can do in these 10 days, as we have said, is the vicar of Allah, Allah. Because in Hadith, even Amar the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that there are no days in which the good deeds are greater and more beloved to Allah, Allah Allah to be performed than those 10 days of the ledger. So do plenty of deadly which
is saying La la la la, la la la la, la, la La Cucina, saying tech via a la hora local local and saying jagmeet Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. And in one narration, that has to be was added which is saying Subhan Allah Subhana Allah Subhan Allah, so in these 10 days, we need to do plenty of Vicar of Allah, Allah Allah in specific, okay, now see the dhikr of Allah, Allah Allah Almighty, respected the brothers and sisters is very, very virtuous, the dhikr of Allah Allah Allah, the dhikr of Allah, Allah Allah has different levels, the dhikr of Allah, Allah, Allah wa we remember Allah, Allah, Allah by our tongues and our hearts is the highest level of liquor.
We remember Allah, Allah, Allah by our tongues and by our hearts means when we say la ilaha illAllah Our hearts are aware, our minds and hearts are aware that we have said La ilaha illallah wa
sallahu wa coalition in Cardiff, and we know its meaning. So, awareness that we are saying it and knowing the meaning of it, okay, and believing in it or actualizing it in your heart. So this is the highest level of liquid which is Vicar by tank, and they care by heart. Okay, and that's why in the Hadith, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, he decided that that should I tell you about the best of your deeds and better than meeting your enemies you strike and then their next and they strike your next and better than spending, spending spending money or spending gold and silver for the sake of Allah, Allah Allah. Then the companions were, were amazed what is that? That is better
than Jihad word you will die as a martyr. And you will be struggling in jihad. What is that? Good deeds that is better than spending money, spending gold and silver for the sake of Allah Allah Allah What is that? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, What? The crow law in remembrance of Allah remembrance of Allah? Yes. So one of the commentators the greatest scholar in hideout, he said, How come the dhikr of Allah remembrance of Allah can be better than Jihad and better than spending for the sake of Allah, Allah Allah? He said, the answer is this. He said, when you have the full meaning of the cat, which is the remembrance of Allah, Allah, Allah by tongue, and most importantly,
remembering Allah Allah Allah by heart, this liquid, it means that the awareness of Allah Allah is alive. Okay is alive in your heart is living in your heart, the remembrance of Allah Allah Allah is living in your heart all of the time. So you when when this happens, you are seeing a lot of dillo I know all the time, or to handle or this reminds us of the Hagia Sophia son, when jabril taught the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and Islam and Eman and the lesson and he said the sun which is the highest level of an event is to worship Allah Allah Allah, as if you see a lot.
So this is the highest level when you worship Allah, Allah Allah as if you are seeing a warden.
No, no all the time. When this when you reach to this level, then when there is a call for jihad, you will go for that when there is a call to spend your money for the sake of Allah, Allah Allah, you will do that when there is a call to sacrifice any kind of sacrifice for the sake of Allah, Allah Allah, you will do it. When you want to do liquor by your tongue, you will do it when you want to please your parents, you will do it you will you when you want to be kind to people, you will do it. Because what the motivation in your heart is there always all the time. So that motivation is better than the act itself. So that motivation, which is what the real dhikr of Allah, Allah, Allah
is better than Jihad because it motivates the person to do the jihad. And it is better than spending money for the sake of Allah, Allah, Allah because it motivates the person to spend money for the sake of Allah, Allah, Allah without that real energy, Vicar of Allah, Allah, Allah, the person wouldn't be able to do many of the Islamic activities, let alone jihad. That's why it is more important that you had and it is more rewarded than jihad. Okay, so that is the highest level of liquor of Allah, Allah, Allah, if we can achieve that all the time, or most of the time, and in particular, during these 10 days of the ledger, then we're lucky we have achieved a lot then we just
ask Allah, Allah, Allah to accept it from us because this is one of the highest highest achievements that we can achieve in our life. So hon Allah
and so this is the highest level of the case. Then after that comes the other levels of Vickers, for example, mentioning or remembering Allah Allah Allah by tongue. Now my dear brothers and sisters, don't imagine that remembering the Lord Allah Allah by tongue, yes, and not. Sometimes you can do this from Han Allah and Allah Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah and you will heart is not fully aware of what you exactly say. But it is still it is still among the very best deeds. And some people say how come just It is easy to be said Subhan Allah Al Hamdulillah, Allah subhanho wa Taala How come it is among the best deeds? And it is the easiest deed? No, no, no, no, my dear brothers and sisters, it
is not as easy as you think. And to challenge you to challenge you. I would like you, I would like you to do it regularly. To do it regularly. Yes. And each day each day I want you to by the end of the day when you before you go to bed, record how many times you have said it? Yes or not? How many times maybe how much time you spent on daycare. Or my dear brothers and sisters do the following how much time you could have made deleted, but you missed it.
Yeah, how much what time you could have mentioned the name of Allah Allah Allah, remember de la de la la, but you missed it. For example. Sometimes we wait in a queue for five, six minutes in a queue, maybe in the pasta phase, doing something, buying a ticket or whatever. And for these few minutes, do we make dhikr of Allah Allah Allah by our tongues? Most likely we forget.
Yes. Okay. I'll give you another example. Yeah, the other day. I want to fill my car petrol. Yeah. And you spend two three minutes filling your car. Do you make Vicar of Allah Allah Allah during this time? This time? You do nothing just filling your car? Yeah. filling your car. Do you say Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allahu Akbar. No, or you forget, it is likely that you forget, although all of us know that award of Vicar and it is, as we said, simple and easy. And the reality My dear brothers and sisters, it is not easy.
It is not easy, why it is not easy, because, as some of the scholars said, that see, the one who remembers the Lord Allah Allah by his tongue, this person is actually remembering Allah Allah Allah by his heart.
And if the heart of the person is not remembering Allah, Allah, Allah, then the tongue will not remember to remember Allah, Allah Allah or to mention the name of Allah, Allah Allah. That's why the one who can manage to remember Allah, Allah Allah by his tongue, he has achieved a lot because it means it is a manifestation that he
Heart is remembering God Allah Allah. That's why it is not easy. Moreover, my dear brothers and sisters, as I think I mentioned this, that Allah Allah Allah does not like to place his Vicar his remembrance in a place that is not pure.
So, if your heart is not pure enough, Allah Allah Allah does not like to place his Vicar in a dirty place.
So it is not easy to purify your heart to a level that Allah Allah, Allah will like to place his Vicar there is remembrance. Similarly, if your tongue is not pure, is not clean enough. Allah Allah Allah will not help you because Allah Allah Allah doesn't want his name to be mentioned by a dirty tongue.
Yeah, that's why you need we need Mujahid we need jihad, we need to struggle in order to what in order to remember Allah, Allah, Allah by tongue. And these 10 days of elijah are or are very unique days, very special days in order to act in order to help us to help ourselves to make more of Nicaragua jalala to purify our hearts more to purify our tongues more and to make them use to make Vicar of Allah jell O Allah more and more. That's why we say if you can
abandon everything, or as much as you can leave everything and just do the things that you must do. Yes. And dedicate more time for Vicar of Allah, Allah Allah in these days, then you should do it.
In sha Allah, we will mention more of the good deeds in sha Allah in the coming episode. desikan la hora, Santa Monica
