loved you recently bizarre Dennis
proceed inshallah they will go over how to use number 31 have a lot of wine and no idea the party that is selected by the moment now he he believed that they basically
give a good understanding of the foundations of Islam in general
the Saudis have been highly acclaimed in
history of Islamic academia has a history of its conduct literature and they have been explained by many scholars and they have been a basic basically accepted as
thorat ativ collection for selection of hobbies to give people a good understanding of Islam and the foundations and the principles of the religion. Hadith number 31 is reported by Ebony Mazda in his
book from Selena signed up in a sad and sad and sadness Ah, this ID is one of the companions of the Prophet SAW some of them is Connie has a BA bass, his name is satin hibben nisab as ID
and he said episod Sadiq he said that a man came to the Prophet salallahu salam,
salam, wa salam ala rasulillah dadlani Allah Amylin is amin to who have been Allah who have been in messenger of a lot me have an action, he's asking for one action. If I do it, the people who love will love me and the people will love me just one action. If I do it, Allah will love me and the people will love me.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to him
is had fit donia your head back Allah was had female in the nest, you have Becca ness? Is that fit? dunya basically, desert have no desire for renounce laughs translations.
I don't know the verb of it. So I have no desire.
How do you get like a verb?
meters? Interesting. Yeah, be this interested.
Desert, renounce have no desire?
non personal notes. You know, everybody knows what the means. And oh, yeah, we that's what we will be talking about, because it's very hard to find like a one word translation for example, and all of the words may have some inaccurate connotations. So, the explanation observed is what we will be talking about non trauma. So is that fit donia So, I have this interest, lack of desire in the dunya the and then Allah will love you was had female in the nest and have no desire and that which people possess in what that which people have.
You head back and NASS and then the people will love you. So it is one answer. It is one action, because adonia is what is in people's hands. It's what people possess. And that is what people compete for. So if you have no desire for that which they compete for them, they will love you and they will not
have any hostility towards you because you're not competing with them
Are you know basically the de facto or the that means that they are
So this is a very, very beautiful hobbyist, we will quickly go over one thing in the beginning that may take away a little bit from the subject matter of this
talk for this class, which has which has to do with mostella hobbies or hobbies, terminology or hobbies science. This particular hobbies is a good example on what we have been talking about in the last
two Saturdays, those who come on Saturday, we've been talking about how these life we've been talking about the week had these and when do we accept the week ahead even when we do not accept the week ahaadeeth and this one is particularly a good example.
Because even though some of the scholars have hobbies, consider that as hobbies to be hustlin. The majority have considered that at least at one point, the vast majority of the scholars consider those hobbies to be weak to be live. And the reason is that this hadith is reported from a man called Khalid nomina. Cora say he reports it from Savannah sorry, he reports it from our husband, who reports it from sadness, sadhana saw the
father of nominal policy in particular, is not a trustworthy narrator meaning that many of the scholars of Hadith consider them to be
some somewhat appropriate theory relate from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mr Mohammed in particular, he used to consider nominal currency. And he used to have many comments about credit of nominal currency, about the fact that he can come up with wonders like he could report from trustworthy people like hobbies are very strange, very peculiar,
very unknown to the rest. So, but in this particular hobbies, this particular hobbies has been, you know, basically considered the husband by some of the scholars and hobbies. You have
several second Alberti, for instance of the contemporary scholars, he can say there is it hasn't, he basically hasn't for corroborative evidence, which is something a class we talked about last Saturday, which is the lowest lowest ranking of acceptable Hadees Hadees that we accept the lowest rank in his house and have it not hasn't for itself, that chain of narration itself, I can say that chain is an authentic is a good chain, but because of corroboration from other narrators, you know, other narrators reporting from Sofia's library also a couple of other narrators reported the same from Sophia and his story because of corroboration from other narrators, the Hadees will be
augmented from or you know, raised, elevated from viiv, to Hassan II, which is the first layer of acceptable ahaadeeth.
The point here is what the point here is, how do you feel dive the week had these may sometimes be reported, particularly here? This is a good example. And that's why we're mentioning all of this, because this is a very good example. Even if you don't consider this how do you pass on the diary? You know many of the scholars who consider this hobbies to be weak
in the past, even if you do not consider this hobbies to be Hassan, the diary, would it would it still be reasonable to report to this how to use Yes. Why because it does not pertain to rulings because it's not extremely weak. No one said that for the nominal crochet fabricates hobbies they were not they were really concerned about his accuracy, his level of you know, understanding and so on.
So no one said that he fabricates hobbies, or at least it is it you know, the majority of the you know, some Mason someone had mentioned that, but the majority of this color is to consider how to
crochet, not a fabricator of a hobby. So this habit is not modular, it's not a fabricated are these not fabricated these does not pertain to rulings.
And in addition to this, it does not establish any new concept. Is it? Are we really establishing a new concept here when we talk about having no desire in the dunya having no desire and what people possess? zoo? Is it a new concept and Islam that this is establishing? Absolutely not, it is not a new concept. Then the last question may may
Be so why are we reporting on we have these different doesn't have much the phrasing sometimes of a bar or sometimes could be powerful di bar the phrasing sometimes could reach, but could could basically have the power of
really reaching the hearts and minds of people and impacting, you know, people spiritually, emotionally, intellectually dybala the phrasing the wording of the hobbies, being worded in this way, may point out some of the benefits of this particular action that is being recommended, may point out some of the wisdoms may point out some of the beauties of that action may point out some of the reward deserved by doing this action. So, this bar itself is a powerful bar, right? Yes, there are so many ads on it to talk about this interest in the donia, lack of desire in the dunya, renouncing the donia. But this a bar is a very beautiful, I bought it I have no desire in the dunya
Allah will love you have no desire and what is in people's hands and what people possess, and the people will love you, if you want it to be loved by Allah, and the people this is the simple answer, have no desire for what they compete for the dunya
and then you will be loved of Allah and that people to the you know, so that Obama is a very beautiful, powerful library, a treatise on the hearts and minds of people. So it would be acceptable, even if you believe that this hadith is not Hassan is not a you believe is still it is weak, it does not pretend to rulings, it does not establish a new concept, it is not extremely weak or fabricated. And there is a need to report that because of how powerful that ivara to the point that in Windsor, a rocky mountain lion kalibata one of the you know, scholars of Hadith, and I thought he Botha he he said I agree that this center this chain is weak. You know what I can have a
llama atonement Anwar in Nepal. So but this hadith has a shine from the light of prophethood from the lights of prophethood. It shines, you know, so it sort of it takes from the lights of prophethood Allah Ilana Ottoman Anwar in a row.
So that is the first thing I wanted to talk about that sometimes the Hadith that is weak is reported. If there are certain conditions fulfilled to the people in the in with regard to this issue, you know, go to one do go to the extremes, and some people are in the middle one extreme is to basically have no concern whatsoever for the authenticity of reports, not be worried about this in rulings in inoty, then anything it just don't worry that people don't worry about it. And on the other side, people that are very meticulous about the chain of narration, sometimes they deprive themselves of beautiful, powerful reports that could very well be from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
that that that we could use in teaching, instructing, motivating, inspiring the people and persuading them, so that the middle path, which is the path of the majority of the Mojave theme, is to accept it with some conditions, there are some contingencies once you have fulfilled them, then you could report the hobbies. That is why if this is a very good example on one
so it's had
female cydonia your head bacala is half adonia, your head baccala then have no desire for the dunya but then Allah will love you and have no desire for what people possess and the people will love you The concept of
first of all this concept is is a very, very
genuine concept in Islam. It is a very authentic concept in Islam. So don't undermine this concept. Don't belittle this concept, the concept. You know, sometimes people that get a little bit carried away by, you know, modernistic views of Islam. They want to belittle that concept because the fear that if we teach people about Zod, people will be interested in the donia people will abandon their work, we will not have great Muslim inventors, we will not have great Muslim investors we will not have you know the basically the ingredients of civilization in a powerful,
Civilization economically in every regard. So, a lot of us tend to put down to be little to undermine this very important concept and Islam It is a very important concept, we have to understand it well, but it is a very important concept, and it does have to do with this interest in the dunya. And it does have to do with renouncing the dunya to some extent, then it does have to do with leaving out abandoning
the dunya to some extent,
Allah subhanho wa Taala
told us you know about the concept of observe,
in Surah, Allah subhanaw taala says, well, very humble hair to do normal hair to do any flf karate lammeter are very open hearted dooney and they rejoice in a higher dunya in the lower life dunya means what?
Lower, lower, it just means lower. So, it is a superlative of comparison, you know, lower higher dunya is the lower because an ephah is the higher one. So it is the dunya it is the lower one. We're very horrible at it dunia has and they rejoice in the life of this world.
But if you say we rejoice them the life of this world,
rejoice them the dernier are very humble had done one adonia for karate might have done it to lamotta in the life of this world, compared to the hereafter fill era compared to the Hereafter is nothing but Mata. Mata he here would mean transients enjoyment transients quick passing enjoyment, quick passing enjoyment. So a very Hoban has done nearly rejoiced in the life of this world. Could we say that
rejoicing in the life of this world
is a problem?
Because if you read the translation fairy from catatonia, they rejoice in the life in the life of this world.
But would that be a problem? It doesn't look like it is a problem, right? Because
Allah subhanaw taala wants us to be happy right?
wants us to rejoice before the episodic alpha Bravo, Surat Yunus who Hiram emerged about, say in a lost bounty, and in His mercy let them rejoice. That's better than all the D gather. But what funny Whoville hieratic donia would actually mean the happily settled for a hairdryer.
We happily settled for a higher donita so in a Latino Arizona Department a very horrible had to do the aatma an obeah what do we have to do you know what ma'am? novia in sort of funerals in Edina Labradoodle, ricotta Anna, those who do not wish
to meet us
or do not look forward to meeting us in a levina lie or do not upon those who do not look forward to meeting us. What I'll do will have it done yet. And they happily settle for half done. What MANOVA and they're comfortable in it. So there is no there is no errors inside them to see the one that is coming the life that is coming. They are not concerned about the one that is coming. This is it. This is the this praise Farah bit donea when you happily settle for the dunya when you happily settle when you're tempted by the dunya. But not because of the mere mere rejoicing in the dunya because we should rejoice.
And the dunya is not bad all the time. This is a very important concept because we you know, the religious people in particular the they are seen as people that hate life.
Like you don't my life love life.
You don't love beauty you don't love you know, all of the enjoyments
It's it's tricky, because if you do present yourself to the people in this way, then people will say then those people who really want to destroy life
have they have this much resentment for life, then that is a civilization that just wants to destroy our life. They want to destroy our accomplishments. We're trying to make it better and they are trying to pronounce it and deserted and you know
and destroyed just you know, it doesn't look like this, but actually this is this is this is part you know, this is incorrect, we do not this like life itself is not this praise than Islam it is human action in life, it is your distraction by life that is disgraced whenever the union has this phrase, it is not
it is not all of these are the name of Allah subhanaw taala this always have the name of Allah, you know, the beauty of the flowing rivers, the mat, the Green Mountains, the you know, the all of those beauties are of the name of Allah that you should, you should appreciate. And you should
be the light, you know, or With the name of Allah. How should How could we you know, hate the name of Allah subhanaw taala So, yeah, Panama has said caporetto hypotonia How could I not love the donia
pocket put dr. D have put
put a classy woman who higher
up Lobo Audrey ko Bihar and Nairobi have done pay for that.
how could I not love the dernier this life
when some sustenance was decreed for me and this life,
sustenance that will allow me to live
you know, so
many other aleafia
after Cebu hyah. And that will be
Audrey COVID hotbar. And that will be halogen. So the food, the sustenance of this life, the enjoyments of this life would enable me to live, you know, food and so that is the dounia you know, will enable me to live and I will live
to make tau
because without who live in you can earn half an hour.
So I live to earn baja Santa and I earned baja Santa to basically attain the agenda. How could they not love it? So you should love it, what's your hating is your distraction by the dunya it is your human action, but the dunia is itself.
Clear of your otherwise we are not going to be able to blame the dunya on the Day of Judgment. Right? You're not blaming the Dhoni on the Day of Judgment, for distracting you for being a fitna for you.
Because the dunia had told you enough. I'll even have you thought at one time heard Amanda's praising the dunya.
And he said to him, the dunia has not done you any wrong. The dunia has shown you all of her defects, has given you all of her beauties, but have clearly clearly shown to you all of her defects.
Has the duty not shown to you your father who died.
Don't you see the grave of your mother?
Don't you pass by the First Nations the dunion history, the dunya go around, you know, go to the pyramids.
You visit the pyramids, First Nations, where are they now the duty has telling you don't be fooled. Don't be deceived. The latter Caribbean, don't be deluded by me. You know, I don't class I am showing you what I did. I have shown you you know I am giving you my abilities to enjoy. But at the same time I have shown you everything and I did not hear this you know, concede anything from you. So if you're if you are being deceived, it is your fault. It is not the juniors fault.
If you're being tempted by women, it is not the woman's fault, it is your fault. So when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says in the Hadith
halifa referred to by Muslim from every side and in the long run, in adonia Houghton Kabira in the llama sniffle comfy half another Ramadan, Fatah padonia taco Nisa, in our fitness Ebenezer eat cannot finish
in the dunya a lot on the dunya is hard work sweet. fabula means green fresh, is alluring.
So it is fresh and sweet.
What an alarmist leprechaun
Fear and alarm will make you generations to succeed one another or make you succeed one another in generations phenomenon Kay Fatah maroon and then he will look at what you will watch what you do for tech adonia. So fear that
what happened is and field women in our frequency vinius Lee kind of Nyssa for the first
of Venezuela, he was concerning women.
So the first trial which they failed, was concerning women there their first
misguidance was concerning women.
Was this is this the fault of women or the fault of the donor, or it is your fault that you were tempted?
Because, you know, at the same time, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said probably that I am gonna come up to banessa two things were me, I would made
beloved to me out of your dunya you know, for a few more sense. The one is on women. So women are not to be hated, they are to be loved. However, you should not be tempted by them. And the same applies to women. They should not be tempted by men. So it's a great fit for you but in and of itself is not a bad thing. It is a good thing. Same applies to linear the dunia Masada Farah, it is basically your your farm
where you you sow the seeds to be harvested in the ephedra without this dunya How do you get to LA Farah, you should be you should love the dunia for it leads you to the ferrites that leads you to the Akira and you should love Allah and St kalanchoe gratitude for Allah subhanaw taala who give you this dunya this beautiful dunya so basically allies created us and and for now ignore the portion of human beings that will not make it to the jungle.
And I want you to not make this ruin your
the sweetness of your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala
trust in allows wisdom and trust in a loss fairness and justice. Leave it for him leave that part for him. But Allah created a group of human beings and he put them in this dunya so that he could test the test them by very, very reasonable test, a very reasonable test. But celtica condom in Zurich for debate, I you know, on the day of judgment when Allah subhanaw taala you know, would bring someone out of five and you will say to him, would you ransom yourself with all of the dernier the feel of the mountains? in gold? He said yes. And Allah subhanaw taala will tell him you lied, I had asked you for much less than that. Do not ascribe partners to me. So Allah subhanaw taala is
asking you for a very simple and reasonable
request. Don't ascribe partners then meet him with complete hate.
And then you get an everlasting life in bliss in Ghana, in
everlasting nyeem you know aeternum nine,
how beautiful is this? So that dunya is your comparator, this name it is your bridge to this nine to this life and eternal
you know, Joy
so as Muslims, we don't
basically hate the dunya dunya is beautiful. If the vinyasa sweet then he has fresh
but we hate the distractions in the dunya the distractions and the duty. In in light of this we have to understand that the Hadith that is reported by the Museo
de la Vega la mala know Allah has been omitted lemon dunya is curious than all that which is when it is cursed except the victim Allah, the mention of Allah when Allah and that which Allah likes.
So all of the good things in this dunya Allah likes,
even your kindness with your, your, your playing with your kids, your kindness with your wife, all of these things, allow likes, these are all things that Allah likes, is not just your a bad day, Your Worship and your prayers. So all of the good homes
Some things Allah likes, all of them are not not.
What is Malarone what is curse is that which will distract you from Allah subhanaw taala and the work for the hereafter. So don't worry about one atom alone if you have a meaningless curse than all of it, on that which then it is curious except the Corolla dimension of Allah, the remembrance of Allah, the remembrance of Allah being conscious of allow the time when Allah and that which Allah likes, all that which Allah likes. Why even without limit and a seeker of knowledge and and as color and seeker of knowledge or a knowledgeable person, and one who is seeking knowledge.
In in light of the you know, the fact that this dounia is masaka Hara dystonia is our bridge to Allah Hara, we have to understand the studies, that it is your distraction in the dunya, not the dunya itself. The mania itself is an AMA from Allah, it's a blessing from Allah Azza favor from Malaysia, thank Allah for it. But it is your distractibility it is your distraction by the dunya. That is this praise, and that's blameworthy.
So it's all our fault, right? And that's why on the Day of Judgment, we will have no one to blame but ourselves. Don't blame the donia Don't blame the Satan. Don't blame it on women. Don't blame it on friends, you will have only yourself to blame. That is what Allah subhanaw taala said in the famous hobbies hobbies, hobbies are
also humanoids very calculated on an island after one whoever finds otherwise fun what's the hierarchy of Mandala, whoever finds a good return to Allah, good upon his return, should praise a lion whoever finds other ways that him only blame himself, not the dounia not at least not you know, whatever confusions you will have only yourself to blame. So we don't this hate the dunya.
But we dislike being distracted by
our human shortcoming this distraction as arguments are coming. It is not the fault of the denier itself. That's one thing. So what is
this to have this interest and let's take some of the you know, statements of brightest predecessors in South Africa sorry about God because they can basically clarify the meaning a little bit more.
So Zod is
Eunice optimizar I said as the
be absorbed laser with a horrible holiday obey that and man Zod is not by making harder harder on that which is harder,
making banning that which is hella
you know, renouncing the Twitter's halat No, that's not what I've added man and it is not about wasting your money. It's not about going out and wasting your money so that you could be poor so that you could be called
well I can do that and takuna female Yeah, the law he I will stop I was duck
minca female yedek outta methodic antigona female yet ally alpha mafia that you should have more trust in that which is with a law than what that which is with you
want akuna andalusi Betty and the holy how our armies are
to be the same upon when you're afflicted whether you're afflicted or not. You're the same
one yesterday I'm back I'm not mad he was mme fi feel happy. And that the praise of people under this praise is equal in your site.
As long as you are on the truth as long as you are on the truth then the praise and this praise of people are indifferent to you whether people praise you or this praise you this is all indifferent to you.
So keep in mind they do listen to my Sarah here talk about three actions that are all actions of the heart. None of them is actions of the body.
It is not about putting on but you know like rags and looking at it is not about eating raw food for avoiding, you know that I can see is to be called Zed. Although excessiveness certainly we will come to this excessiveness is counter to anything but
Sophia Sarah, you said lasers so do be academical easy while observing
At Zoo It is not about eating raw food and you know wearing about Kava is, is the same like it's it's this
apparently they used to consider it the the dress of the poor or something of that nature
laser or the dress of the ascetic the dress of the Messiah
something like this during his time. So Zoda is not by eating raw food and dressing in certain types of garments has okusama Zohar is simply because I'm going to have short hopes you know in the dernier an article for much longevity in the journey and to work as if the Hereafter is so close because
so when you're in a certain mindset I said this is not about forbidding that which is halaal or about wasting your money is zoo is basically three things. One of them is that you are I was that female he added lamb into females he added
so that you are have more certainty reliance on that which is with a lot more than that which is in your hands. That is why must Roop said in the accent akuna Vernon Bella is Carla little amphis Saba laser Beatty puppies will come in what are
the best you know thoughts I have of Allah subhanaw taala or in a loss of Hannah tala is when I wake up in the morning, and my boy says to me, there is not any pump or wheat in the house. Nor is there Do we have money no there have no come no wheat, no money. That is when you you know have the best thoughts of Allah and Allah that's when I realized the most on the last one without it because I know that it is not about what I have. It's about what he has. So when I wake up like this, then I have my best thoughts of Allah subhanaw taala and then he gets provided for because you know, a law provides for all so to have this yeah clean this year teen it all comes in from European
zone at the core of it comes from European and River.
certainty and contentment if you have certainty and aligned contentment with his decrees. That is basically those are the two main ingredients for European Villa certainty in Allah and His promised 100 contentment with that which he gives you.
So the first thing is that you trust in Allah subhanaw taala and rely on Allah if you trust in Allah and rely on Allah, will you ever be seeking money from haram? Or do you ever be too anxious about your provisions?
Because this is all counterterrorism
to be seeking money from left and right.
To be anxious about your provisions tomorrow, it means that you don't have
because that is the free will curb minko Lehman's Godot who Amrita Rob
is owed, to empty your heart from anything that will occupy it and distracted from seeking the pleasure of the Lord to empty your heart from all distractions. So if the agenda isn't if the if the dooney has not distracting you, you're focused and you take from the dounia whatever helps you get your
you know, go here objective agenda. That is not a problem that is not Metallica road side of Nigeria for the man who used to say
no matter Allah the last Godot con Illa laser moto roar inomata all Bella the matter the enjoyments the wealth, the sustenance, meta is basically everything that you use, you know so the food is Matera the furniture is without the clothes are metallic. So anything that you need your needs.
So and metallic sidedness of a
lie is to say and metallic, the last
metallic that will not distract you from Allah subhanho wa Taala is not the matter of deception not
Allah subhanaw taala said we know how to do it no matter and this life This word is but receiving enjoyment but sight of ninja via because you have to put all the air to these together societal barriers say that matter. The enjoyments the sustenance that will not distract you, distract you from Allah subhanho wa Taala is not metallic Aurora is not the metallic deception.
It is material but it is the material or the enjoyments of Bulaga means the attainment, basically the
deliverance, it will help you it will help deliver you to your destination. It's good Macau, take it after America now fan of Nirvana fan used to be very, very rich. Some of the scholars used to say kind of fuzzy 90 min faceted life,
they used to be the you know, the treasure holders or treasure keepers, or have to have the treasure keepers of Allah in on Earth. So are you at river keeper for Allah is keeping the treasures of Allah to spend from them.
In feasibility, Allah in the past of Allah subhanaw taala that is a that is that a very, very wealthy person, very, very wealthy as a fan of extremely wealthy, they were called the Bible scholars, they were called by those who had to be of the greatest to have, because they were keepers of the treasures of Allah subhanaw taala the captain
you know so so that the spend them in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. And that is one type of his or her there is the other type of zohaib who do not keep it, like Abu Bakr, for instance, would not keep it.
But as Nana, Mandy would keep it suspended in the path of Allah and both pipes are of the Zohar, those who don't keep it, and those who keep it for this sustenance, for the attainment of Allah's pleasure. So when so that when they should last, when the time when it is time to go out to the book and the Prophet salallahu Salam is short on funds. And then he calls on the believers to basically sponsor the Mujahideen that are going out to the book of Nirvana affair, you know, goes forward and you know, sponsors like 300 camels with everything on them, and so on. Or donates
300 Kevin's accounts with their loads.
In this case, he's keeping this to spend within the right time. And someone likable buckler, someone like a bizarre, someone like that. They didn't keep it. Those are also have don't say that those are not so bad. Don't say this is an Islamic, if they if they want, if they feel that it will distract them, keeping it will distract them, and they want to get rid of that quickly, so that they don't get distracted, then that is fine too. And don't call this allostatic because the oma in general will never have all people like abubaker and an abuser and it's impossible. You think that the oma have no great, you know, no great investors that have billionaires that needs to have all of this
economic power and this and that, whoever told you that if we talk from here until the cows come back home, that the oma will stop, you know, that all of the amone stop, you know, seeking wealth and everybody will give up and everybody would give all that he had. So, when to have some examples on this type of zone, the zone of not keeping it
not keeping it, we said sometimes you keep it in your hand away from your heart, but some of the Sahaba give us examples on not keeping it in their hand even.
So, getting rid of it promptly. So that it is it is it is completely away from them, they are not distracted by it at all. This is not condemned.
He wants to say that the Prophet was on himself south of New York Atlanta trikala Africa Kenya Pharaoh laminins rocklahoma Taka when asked to leave your your your inheritors well off is better than to leave them broke.
You know, the beg from people.
That's absolutely true. What's happened to have your class also had special circumstances. You know, he, he had younger, more vulnerable children.
And they used to live a certain type of life. And if he made them live this type of life, and then all the sudden he gives out all of his money, he gives up all of his wealth, and when he dies because he was sick, and he feared that he may die.
So to do this to his children, this would not be really sick. Keep in mind
And he kept, he made them live a certain type of life, and they continue to live it with him. And then right before he dies, he gives up his wealth, so that his children now, you know,
have to basically go through the anguish of losing the Father, and having and being broke. What's not fair.
But the people like Abu Bakr when he comes and gives all of his money to the prophet SAW Solomon, he says, What have you left for your family and he says, I left for them, Allah and His Messenger, he knows better than us, right? That he has trust in Allah. And that allowed provide for him, and he was a merchant. So he could go back and make more money and sustain himself and sustain his family. But what I'm trying to say is, it is it what at the end of the day, it is the free the Columbus template, heart mascot,
from anything that will distract you from the pleasure of your Lord. If you think that you could keep it in your hand and you keep it away from your heart, go ahead, please and be like cosmetic law firm. And I've run out of now if you feel that this is not gonna work for you, that you want to get rid of it faster, so that it does not impact your heart than many of the Sahaba did and many of the righteous predecessors that this as well.
But don't do this when you are not when you have not reached that ranking that spiritual ranking and then cry and then you know, feel no, they did this with with complete certainty, complete confidence. They knew what they were doing. Because sometimes you get a little bit, you know, overzealous people in the beginning of their practice and stuff here over there and says, I'm gonna do this and I'm gonna do that and, and when he is not there yet, he is not appropriate for him that he has not reached any of those stations. He's just being hasty, being reckless, being reckless, but when you feel that you're that you have reached that stage and you're quite confident,
then you could do like a pullback or the Alon when give up all of your money and wait for a lot to provide for you when you reach that station. But don't be reckless in your iPad, because haste and recklessness could cost you dearly. On this path. That is why the prophets of Salaam forbade us from haste and recklessness
is Ori Rahim Allah said,
has their head Hawa mangalam Yaga
Madam President Morsi back to who sobre
Milan Taka mercy Babu sobre
while I'm testing
no matter who shocker
so as the head is the one that masiva the masiva that not overwhelm his patience
so then we'll see that not overwhelm your patience your perseverance, your endurance, your sub was greater than your masiva.
So whenever you're afflicted by a masiva, it does not overwhelm your patience it may or endurance your sub.
And whenever you are granted an AMA, whenever you're granted an AMA
it does not distract you from the shocker of Allah subhanaw taala And so, in gratitude
limpeza una monoshock. But in order for it to be one phrase the tribes it is the segmental and tactical masiva to sobre Francesca, Nana chakra.
as long as the Namah does not distract you and the mercy bus does not make you lose your patience, then that is a form of so then that is a form of them.
So, what is what is it that you need to leave of this lineage?
To be as a
What is it the tea leaf to leave to be as a use of spark during the time of use of spot he said there is no that in the dunya all of the day.
So they asked him why.
he has a one minute movie
because there is
Nothing in the dunya. Now that is the use of nazma Rahim Allah He said, Now let me off
because there is nothing in the dunya now that is purely hallette purely permissible. All of the other zap all of the risk is stayin tainted, so nothing is purely permissible. What is he trying to say? He's trying to say that the Zad is not the one who leaves out the harem does that is not the one who leaves out the Shobha.
The zipper is the one who leaves out that which is completely halal and wholesome and permissible, but he leaves it out for the sake of Allah
and that these are the three types of
zophar them was autofab Lin was Osama xodus three types. So, the obligatory zone for history valid which
was overdue for Berlin which is the virtuous desert you know, the higher ranking of zone is to develop that which is permissible was overdue Salama desert of safety is to develop that which is doubtful
so to develop that which is haram Zoho default it's everyone has to be that type of sad to leave out the twitches hora
de cada una de la Vina nine de la la la Tati, this abbiamo
inherit avino Hi, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Don't let the slow coming of the provisions, the slowness of the provisions in the coming or the slow coming of the provisions make you seek them from haram because that which is where the law cannot be attained, that would that which is with a lie is the wholesome pure blessing provisions that will make you happy, that will be good for you in this life in the hereafter. This type these types of blessing blessing provisions can never be attained through the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, that's oh this far you have to everybody has been afraid. So this alhama
ceramah which is the zone of safety, it is the leave out that which is doubtful
was our default is the zone of virtue that is the vow that which is permissible for development which is permissible. So according to user from the US bot and many of the self use are considered to be leaving out that which is permissible because how could you be called their head if you're just leaving out the Haram here just doing what you have to do your obligations. It's an obligation on you, but you cannot be called that have unless you have left out much of that which is Hillel for Allah subhanaw taala because there had Zoda What are add ons see what Ricardo telefone Swan who
is the stay away and avoid be averse to something because you think you know
it it is beneath you. So it has been easy to compete for the dernier
so that is
basically when you leave out the halab because it is of this career that will distract you from the hereafter you're leaving out the holiday but if you leave out the Haram
anyway, it could be a type of Zoo but you can call one that had really because he's just leaving all that which is Hara.
Although it is
a sort of zone, a sort of zone at least he has enough zone to not seek you know wealth and to not seek power and to not seek all of those things from that which is Hara.
I was what I learned that and he used to say Izzard can never be told by anyone don't ever think that he that you could tell that anyone is
latifolia had enzymes in common Amelie. Don't say to anyone is that because there's orders of the actions of the heart. So it is not about your way you dress, the way you act, the way you eat, the way you walk. Some of the people that walk humbly and act humbly and talk very humbly and very softly, could be of the least is to have in the dunya
because he's doing all of this and he's looking at
how people are, you know, impressed by his humbleness.
So in at the end of the day,
His heart is full of the love of this dunya. Because the last thing and the most resistant thing to be driven out of this dunya from your heart is the love of
status of Berea the love of power and status, the love of superiority, the love of
sort of also
the level of distinction, the love of status, the love of, you know, kobori acid. And that you could be you could be eating dirt every day in the morning and dressed in the most, you know, humble closing, but you would still be looking for distinction and status in the morning. Are you sad? Absolutely not.
You could actually be of the worst kinds of people.
Because you're you're seeking
with something that you should have been using for the reward of Allah subhanaw taala you're seeking the pleasure and the praise of the people by something that you should have used for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala, which is your this interest in learning.
So Zuma is not automatically any this interest of the dunya because some people who could have this interest of the dunya could have this interest of Divinia for multitudes of reasons. Some people could have this interest in the dunya. Because they basically are lazy. They want comfort. So they are not competing for the dunya because they wanted
to sleep in in the morning, they don't want to go to work is that now you're lazy? Be honest with yourself. Some people may have zoa because the Dhoni has trouble. So it doesn't want to get into the troubles of the dernier that's why I'm gonna refer to them if I want to compete with you for the lien allies for the good life, I would have competed. But I do not I heard the last pinata, Allah, you know, the spray some people and say, I'd have to play vertical into heretic madonia stamped out on behalf in sort of tabula rasa Do you have wasted your play about your good deeds in the dernier, and you consume them, they use them up, so I am keeping them I'm saving them for the hereafter. But
if I wanted to compete, they would have competed. So some people are exempt because of this, and Muslims or non Muslims could be there.
Some people are minimalist design that is you word worthy is when you are when you when you have no desire for the dunya. When you wean yourself off of the love of the dunya. When you remove that, from your heart, even if it takes effort, and it takes it is painful, when you're done, you have your heart to empty your heart for the pleasure of Allah and for the pursuit of the hereafter. But if you're basically minimalist because you think that this is cool, and this is nice, and you don't have to worry about things, and you live a better life, and you have less concerns. And and all of this is good is right?
You agree with what the people who do this, and you basically respect the people who do this over the people who compete for the dunya you respect them, but is it reward worthy? No, it's not reward worthy, because it would be reward worthy if I am doing this for the sake of Allah. So you could be zapped, because you're lazy, you could be zapped, because your hand you could be zapped, because you do not want to be distracted by the dunya from an era
And you could be zapped because you do not want to have a lengthy questioning in the affair about your money and so on. Because, you know,
the more abundant your money that the the lengthier, your, your interrogation on there, and thereafter. That's another reason.
But the X that the highest form of zoo is when you leave out the dernier so that does not distract you from
Allah subhanaw taala from the mentioned Vicar of Allah valleyfair from enjoying the company of Allah subhanaw taala so that it doesn't distract you from this and this is the highest form of zou Sagara the way I would say that I would give up all of this dunya if it was given to me completely in a hallowed way. I would give it up so that it does not distract me from my Zik and my company was Allah subhanaw taala
Anyway, there's there's like so much more to say about the last pinata and sort of puzzles, you know, and we should probably end by Allah subhanaw taala and sort of causes this about karoon.
Yeah, you know, there are the people who wanted the life of this world and there are the people who have knowledge and the law that told us that the people who have knowledge are not the people who want the life of this world. The contrast between the two different types of people in sort of the process in the story of Tarun for Corolla komiza
for Corolla calm he visited Xerox when he came out, before his people in his adornment, adornment in his fine clothing, fine shoes, you know, entourage, you know, fine carriage qarun one of the wealthiest in the history of man.
So, then when he came out as people from the, you know, Israelites who were poor and so on, came out and when you look at this, and then the people that are watching this, keep in mind, you know, now Corona is coming out fizzy, nutty and his adornment. He certainly like full of arrogance.
Because he's now showing everything that he has. So, when you drive into the parking lot of your company for instance or the master was your like, fine car, can you want to be noticed?
As retrieving childish you know, and some non Muslims even grew up and beyond this, but
but it depends on if you do this, for the sake of Allah, it is good, it is not a problem to have a nice car.
But certainly there you know, this is also not absolute, not absolute. So excessiveness, meaning that you know to have a house that has gold facets or something like this, even if you have, you know,
basically countless, you know, endless wealth. But there is something about this, that's why the profit zone forbade us from dressing in sale to save something for the hereafter
from wearing gold, and from using gold, even utensils and so on. So if something from the hereafter.
So there is like also something absolute about this regardless of how much money you have. But it is okay to buy it to have a nice car and have a nice house and so on, but to want to be observed. So now qarun last one, I thought I was given this image of qarun coming out and his adornment is full of arrogance. And when he is met by his people, and immediately you have two groups splitting
upon the site, you have to move splitting the people who have no knowledge.
Panama Vini regional Hyatt adonia Yeah, later on this Rama Oto qarun in the husband Avi
wirkkala levina Oh to the hell ya la comme sabula in Cairo lemon, Amira, Camila Sonic, while I will aka illa saburo. And then the I proceeded to the story until Allah said teleca de la Harada Levine Allahu Allah, Allah for sada for the occupants within a tepee. So he came out in his adornment, the people who want the life you really do not have the dunya the one they desire, they seek the life of this world. We immediately said, Yeah, later on Amazon, oh Chico, we wish we had what Corona has?
were we to have? What Karen had or has, he is a man of great fortunes, he is a man of great fortunes. So
basically to wish to have this for the sake of Allah is not a problem.
To spend it in the way of Allah is not a problem.
There is actually a hadith about this, that you get the same reward is really not mentioned. But But allatheena Oh to learn that those who are endowed with knowledge those who are given knowledge, who's who are given knowledge, they immediately recognize that those people are only looking at cartoons wealth at cartoons, you know, uncharged parents buying clothing, but they are forgetting that karoun is so arrogant with Corona is so distracted by this. It makes it
Meet him, you know tire an arrogant tire. So they immediately said that levina Ultra ny lacco want to you
Fabiola Haldeman Amira, Amira sedan very word of Allah is better for those who believe then that righteousness, what I would apply Allah saburo and no one will be given it, no one would be granted granted What?
no one will be granted the reward in the hereafter except the one who are patient to saburo and then Allah subhanaw taala afterwards after you know a few verses, Allah says, that
this life of the hereafter and as Otto had an Athena lady do not follow and fill out the LFSR that women make it for those who seek not or no one, what is our low supremacy superiority, you know, Exalted Venus
you know, fill out
what have I said, nor did he see corruption.
So, these don't seek supremacy in the do not seek to corruption in the lens.
And that is, that is
like an an essential ingredient of being as to not want supremacy, to not want superiority, to not want distinction, so it hasn't said Zed what are the equivalent malata hedonist, Karla Hiram many who have Domini is that is the one who meet whenever he encounters someone he says he's better than me. He's better than me.
And it you don't seek for yourself for your ego any distinction above the people in this dunya
keep in mind in dystonia, superiority and supremacy in this dunya but you want the higher rankings in the after you absolutely do. You compete for the after you absolutely do. But in this dunya you are seeking no superiority or supremacy.
And that is the hardest test.
It is not just about the abandonment, although that is part of it. The abandonment of many of the pleasures of this dunya as part of it, but this is train us so that your heart at the end of the day is seeking no superiority and no supremacy in dystonia and your heart and this stays attached to no distraction whatsoever that keeps it from seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and attaining this goal of you know for the downside out
should we start we should start. Everybody should start by doing something right? Because don't just listen to it and go away.
Think of something that you will do think now something that you'll do
to get to that level
where you don't seek these things and you don't seek superiority, you don't seek supremacy. You don't keep anything that will distract you. If you could keep it without distracting you keep it but if you can leave it
when you're ready to do that.
Certainly if it is haram leave it right away. But if it is harder, don't leave it until you're ready. You have reached spirit of spiritual rank that will make you ready to do it. Yes.
Rebecca I didn't have any Hassan Allah give us good in this life and good in the hereafter.
Who That is why Saturday said that the dunya is good. The dunya is beautiful. As long as it doesn't distract you, it would not be hassled if it distracts you
It depends on whether it distracts you or not.
So once the NEMA defeats your shock, once the NEMA is greater than your shock, your your your the blessings you have are greater than your gratitude.
Then you're done that is not a hustler.
So you have been given so many blessings. You have not you know good healthy kids. You have nice you know car, nice car house, you're healthy. Your reputation also is not tarnished. Your
Your wife is easygoing or your husband
You have like so many, many, so, so many blessings.
And your blessings are much greater than your gratitude. That is not a hassle. That's a setup.
So, if your blessings are greater than greed, gratitude, for your mercy, by your reflection is greater than your patience, then you are in danger. So Alhamdulillah in the dunya is the blessing that you will be able to show gratitude for
you know, so to have, you know, sustenance,
some wealth in dystonia, and health and, you know, basically compatible spouse, all of these things happen.
But if any of these things distract you, then they're not hassle. If any of these things, if you fail to show gratitude for any of these things, it is not possible. So now I'm going to add the chakra
blessing that you have not really
paid for the
your workplace, your title, your position at your workplace, if you have it that makes you feel better, like
I was just one of my colleagues, I just had a joke. I said that, you know, you say, make sure you get this done.
Don't do this, that's what is. So is that a wrong thing to say?
No, I don't think it's always the wrong thing to say if you do this, say this, you know, arrogantly, Minister, wrong thing to say but if you want to basically to have no role confusion, it is that as part of work ethics, the appropriate work ethics, they have no role confusion.
Because, you know, if I if I am, for instance, like if I work as a physician, and the head of the department asked me to change the light bulbs, I will tell them, it's not my job,
that is basically avoiding role confusion here, if the head of the department nicely came and said, well, there is no one here then I may certainly do.
But, if I feel that there will be some role confusion here, then I will clarify things, so that there there is no wrong confusion, and that is absolutely fine. So, some of these things and also in in, in, in the workplace also, like if you get instructed because that could be part of the work culture. And as a Muslim, you don't want you know, certainly unless it is haram, but you also want to follow the traffic, follow the rules, you know, so you don't want to be
pointed out as someone who is not compliant. So, you know, part of corporate ethics is to manage yourself up and so that you could give the client the confidence in the organization, the client feels that he is basically dealing with a decent respectable organization. So you are told to manage yourself up you're told to present yourself in a way that will be
convincing to the clients and if he if you do this with out it, affecting your psyche, within reason without it affecting your psyche without being arrogant, then that is not countered, deserved. At the end of the day, we all know, we all go through. And we all know when we should show humbleness and we fail to show it you know, when we should
refrain from an argument, but we don't we keep on carrying on and carry on and carry on. Because at the end of the day, you want to come on top. And then this one thing to come on top is counter to soon, but to follow some work ethics or you know, rules of the work environment without having arrogance. It is about what is in the heart.
Removing the level of grace from the heart.
Yeah, and I did mention today that that's one of the units of Masada.
And it was also reported from our Muslim colony, very comparable report from him about, you know, Zoda been three elements one element is the trust in that which is with a lot more than you trust that which is with in your hands. And the other element is to be the same in time of reflection with or without reflection. And the third thing is to have you know, is to hold equal the praise or this praise of the people.
And I said that it is really not
you can't raise anything that that that says, does exactly to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that you hold can equal the praise or the praise of the people.
What is it what is certainly true
is that the praise and the praise of the people will never ever affect you in the way you know in a way that will make you basically sway from justice or that will the way that will make you say something wrong to this please the people are afraid to refrain from saying the truth, how the fear that you made this please the people certainly you would do this if you if you want to be like a clever prudent die and you want to use
graduation in your dow and so on, you may prioritize but this is for the interests of the people not for your own interest.
As long as the praise and this praise of the people are not changing your course.
I think he This is enough, but the whole equal the praise and praise of the people it is it is not it's contrary to nature. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to get upset when people misbehave he restrained himself but he would be seen.
we know that it is causing you grief what they are saying. So
For an act of the people will love me in the
hobbies itself. And many, many hobbies, you know,
wasn't reported by NSA or
Anyway, when when they asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
about the man who does something for a loss of Allah,
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah in Escalante, casual.
So when when the Prophet was when I was asked about someone who
does something for a land and the people praise the praise Him, and the prophet SAW someone said that these are glad tidings been forwarded to the believers, to stabilize him to assure him that he's on the right path, when he's been praised by the believers. When he's been praised by the believers this would give him comfort confidence that he is on the right path, because the believers are praising him
because my album was the winner Hassan Hassan whatever the Muslims see as Hassan are good then it is Hassan in the sight of Allah as
so you're not going to be able to get there and it does not matter if they give their we're praising the sprays are completely equal in your sight.
But praising the sprays will be completely inconsequential.
They're not equal, it will stand is that people like encouragement people like you know,
that is absolutely fine, natural human, only human, human the prophets and messengers, they were saddened by people, people's insults and they
were pleased by people's,
you know, show of respect and love and so but
Praise and praise should be totally inconsequential.
