00:00:08--> 00:00:09

smil

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

II

00:00:30--> 00:00:33

all

00:00:39--> 00:00:41

COVID dounia

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

corabi Oh,

00:01:19--> 00:01:19

the

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

movie

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

Wash, wash, Wash,

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

wash What's

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

up man?

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

Bobby,

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

we are number 36

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

out of 14 to be selected

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

to be 40 to

00:02:17--> 00:02:21

give you the basically the tenants of the lien that

00:02:23--> 00:02:30

have the best understanding of the theme, they make you like a good understanding of the religion in its entirety.

00:02:31--> 00:02:39

Many of the scholars in comparative video now they found those hobbies to be particularly important

00:02:40--> 00:02:44

for you one's understanding with understanding of their illusion,

00:02:45--> 00:02:59

having the knowledge added to them about 80 made them into 50. And he elaborated on them in a book that is called general Rama Hagen, which is the compendium of knowledge and

00:03:01--> 00:03:10

wisdom. This book, like I said, is present in your library and the compendium of knowledge and wisdom that is here in the library.

00:03:12--> 00:03:15

At this point, it is missing so someone was taking it

00:03:18--> 00:03:21

you know, I was very disappointed, you're very disappointed

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

to whoever took it and somehow

00:03:28--> 00:03:54

so never, inshallah, look out for it, because the books of the present in your library and so on. And if he lost quickly, you're going to get another book and just praying for like, those things is such a valuable book. And of course, his book. You could also buys and habits, your library because it will be quite helpful to have a copy of this book.

00:03:56--> 00:04:06

If you want to buy the Arabic, Arabic in Arabic, if you're known to them, it's a compendium of knowledge and wisdom. Anyway, going back to that

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

time goes by quickly

00:04:12--> 00:04:22

because we're at number 36. And if we're going to teach cubbies in one or two weeks that tells you or shows you have been doing this for almost a year.

00:04:28--> 00:04:28

So

00:04:30--> 00:04:38

I just recently reported by the non Muslim variant reports of it have been also recorded by the normal Bukhari and

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

Sunnah lithium inside the mouths of we have report to Diane wordings but this particular wording is binding my Muslim and usually around Muslim they have a love. Mostly they have a love. Muslim reported that in the nice words

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

Usually when you have a decent as reported by various color, you know, hobbies, scholars and Muslims wording,

00:05:10--> 00:05:25

you know is is just as comprehensive as the rest of them, then they use the word Muslim. Now not because Muslim is more authentic than quality, because quality is more authentic than Muslim but Muslim give a little bit

00:05:26--> 00:05:54

more attention to the wording and he and Muslims book you cannot relate to hobbies by meaning it has to be verbatim. So it is not permissible according to Muslim theory are related by meaning for the majority of scholars they would allow it to important by meaning is allowable according to majority of its calories. As long as you are happy as long as you are a scholar, you know what we're talking about.

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

Otherwise, if you don't know what you're talking about me, and you may change the wording.

00:06:05--> 00:06:32

Change that to be consequential to the meaning when you cannot be forced to accept verbatim. So if you're not like a scholar, and he's just heard something, you should not delete it, unless you are repeating it verbatim unless you have memorized it perfectly. Because if you're not a scholar, and you change a little bit in the wording, and that may not only apply to Javi 15 applies to statements of scholars and things of that nature.

00:06:34--> 00:06:48

People that are not scholars, if they want to relate things to others, they really need to remember that verbatim or not relating to others, because they may change the wording a little bit to the point that that would change the meaning

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

of a word to have a problem with a force or

00:06:55--> 00:07:04

variations is that the narrator's themselves because they do change the meanings unknown.

00:07:07--> 00:07:19

Without any intentions, it's just because of their lack of knowledge, they may change the wording they may change an article or just like a word here or there that would completely change the meaning.

00:07:20--> 00:07:28

So in general, they would prefer the wording governing my Muslim because he was very particular about the word

00:07:29--> 00:07:42

anomala and Buhari will chop off their hobbies and take each piece and put it in the stock of classification, you know, under the the basically the corresponding

00:07:44--> 00:08:02

category or title. So he will take this, and we'll take parts of this, you know, from Europe and South Africa, wherever it takes the path to knowledge. And then he was reported in chapter by chapter that is

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

responding to the meanings here. A Muslim would would think of your hobbies and its entirety and reported it in its entirety, he would not cut it into pieces.

00:08:15--> 00:08:24

So that is why Muslims wording is used often by the scholars when they report assertion companies they say

00:08:25--> 00:08:39

are Muslim and that is the wording that is non Muslim or Muslim. You have a loved Muslim reporter that will just put these words or in this very word. This is a fortune reported by Muslim from

00:08:42--> 00:08:48

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said monopolies are not meaning quote a better than reference are more meaning

00:08:49--> 00:08:53

than corrupted Liliana for someone who for batum in Cora be

00:08:55--> 00:09:14

one well ma'am Yes sir. Yes sir lovely. Fellow woman soccer a Muslim man soccer on the love of dunya Farah Pahlavi I will elaborate the mecca mafia harmony, a fee. That is the first segment of the hobby hobbies is three segments. This is the first segment of

00:09:15--> 00:09:19

the first segment of the curries, just summarize the year.

00:09:21--> 00:09:28

Pan Allah will aid his slave so long as he aid says brother, so a lot of

00:09:29--> 00:09:34

aid or support and sleep as long as he says that his sleep supports because

00:09:36--> 00:09:37

brothers and sisters

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

so that that is the very first segment of Bobby, the second segment of the cubbies, which which which I didn't say he was bush. Whoever removes a word of grief from our lever removes it may not be the best translation yet. Whoever lightens whoever

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

license or

00:10:04--> 00:10:09

license will be good because this is different from the fleet. The word here is not

00:10:10--> 00:10:33

monotonous I mean, the profits have a certain set of numbers, you know these numbers is when you take a breath, right. And peace is when you release the mic, there's a rope around the neck. And you're at least a little bit to the point where I can take my grass that was 10 feet. So if you had a rope around my neck part, and then you release it a little bit, so that I could

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

take a breath that is

00:10:37--> 00:11:00

a free it is complete removal of the hardship it is basically to lift to remove the heart completely in the report by abnormal profit talks about the fried. In this report, we talked about the fee fees. And in some reports by Calvin Najera, he talks about them both in the same hobbies, meaning that they These are two different means. So as much as you want

00:11:01--> 00:11:17

to relieve your stress, you're relieved that the stress of your brother, so if you if, for instance, didn't feel like what so your brother owes you money, and he's his is, you know, it is due

00:11:18--> 00:11:33

to the is unable to pay you back. And you tell him take your time, don't worry about it. I don't mind within a couple of more months. That is what, then feast, the free. This is not automatic. Don't worry about it.

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

It's already here. You don't need

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

to pay back.

00:11:41--> 00:12:26

That means the free because you know someone who's invested money you tell them that your death is forgiven that Mr. Free if you just give him a couple of weeks or a couple of months and give him like festive for some additional time to pay back his gym fees. How do you want to learn this is basically to encourage people to do more for their brothers and sisters. How would you like to treat you? Would you like a lot to not face or lighten your burden, your hardship? Would you like a lottery move in life in America is not a bad thing to lighten your burden to life in your hearts. It was November and it is recommended in praise worthy and you will get rewarded for selling their

00:12:26--> 00:13:12

product. Well, I'll give you a couple more months. But this is pretty wordy. And if you can, you know basically give up the you know the loan. If you do need to give it back to them, that's fine. You give up on your work. But for those people who are capable of doing a little bit more, as much as you do you receive as much as you do to your brothers you receive from a boss a pinata certain fees for them fees, the fees for the fees, and this is called the desert man's insomma. So deeds are rewarded from their or their recompense of deeds will be of its likes. So you know,

00:13:15--> 00:13:22

how moments will all be a compliment to show mercy to those who are on earth that the woman heavens may show mercy onto you.

00:13:24--> 00:13:25

In a live article,

00:13:26--> 00:14:12

as a woman that Allah subhanaw taala will torture and torment those who torment others who those who torment the people. All of this is one principle and this is a steady principle of this theme which is design and Jensen Hamada design is the work recompense compensation min Jensen Ahmad is from the same essence of the these are actions. So the recompense of actions or deeds is from its own likes. So you do the fees to the people you'd like is that a burden on the licensee your burden you're relieved of the stress completely remove it completely removes your burden of distress completely so

00:14:13--> 00:14:18

of course with the Corbett donia Memphis a lot one record button in karate young.

00:14:20--> 00:14:28

So wherever he moves the world with the return of the lever allowed removed from them one of the reasons they have resurrection

00:14:31--> 00:14:41

then the Prophet said woman Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Comes a premier sort of, you know, ease. So men, yes, sir.

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

Yes.

00:14:46--> 00:14:58

And you basically, whoever alleviates the need of a needy person, allow and alleviate his need in this world and the hereafter

00:15:00--> 00:15:18

The third city influence upon registering on Sakura local video, whoever shields for covers or wherever covers up a Muslim, Allah would cover him up or cover his shortcomings in this world and in the hereafter. The beauty of this,

00:15:20--> 00:15:29

you know, there's, there's like 170 of the scholars were able to discover here

00:15:32--> 00:15:35

what that is, what were our last

00:15:37--> 00:15:45

four, whoever leaves wherever he moves or lightens the grief of the lever, a lot of wind lighten his own

00:15:47--> 00:15:53

on the Day of Judgment, young PM, with a lot of that same quarterback, you know,

00:15:55--> 00:16:22

manifests on not meant to be adonia He who lightens for you, removes or partially removes hear a word of the degree from a believer are lowering mu for a man one of the Greeks of the Cave of erection when it comes to Yes, Tara Moser, you know, he's a significant Yes, that autumn also has particularly regarding deaths, it is the ticket rescue

00:16:24--> 00:16:39

to someone a grace period respite for someone or lighten you know, the death of someone by basically given up half of it, or one third of it or something like this. So, if you do this to

00:16:41--> 00:16:49

someone who's insolvent, someone who is, you know, incapable of payment, there are lots of web

00:16:51--> 00:17:21

make it easy for you in this life and thereafter. And if you cover up your brother in this life, and the year after year, if you release the distress of your brother alone, your distress and the year after, but it's not saying this life also, that does not mean a low amount, this release here in distress for the movie or distress in this life as well. But it means the scholars said because the core of the Day of Judgment are so huge, that it would not be even

00:17:24--> 00:18:07

sort of it appropriate to put the quarter where the distress of this life next to the distress and the year after because no comparison whatsoever, there is no comparison whatsoever between the current or the distress of the next life and the distress in this life. So whenever it talks about distress, quotable, goodbyes, distress, whenever we talk about distress, the prophet SAW Selim only mentioned the distress of the Hereafter, because all of the distress that you go through in this linear will be nothing like the stress that people will go through a year after

00:18:08--> 00:18:11

resurrection, when they come out of their graves.

00:18:15--> 00:18:28

So this segment of the hubbies is is summarized the prophets of Allah talks about this various manifestations of basically helping out your brothers and sisters.

00:18:30--> 00:18:45

Your brothers and sisters, various manifestations, the Feasts of Guru likening the burden or the stress, you know, deferment of that or basically forgiving forgiving of debts and

00:18:46--> 00:19:36

covering up their errors and their mistakes, different manifestations, what what it takes from the person is basically love for his brother loves for himself. And if you put your brother in your face, then it will be much easier. Like if you if you think you know he must be in distress now is that is due and you may not be able to pay, let me make sure or him is that we'll be doing two or three days that we call him up before he has apologized to me, let me call them up and tell them if you don't have the money in two or three days. I know that you're like it's doing two or three days. You don't have the money. I could wait. Now you have to release the stress or

00:19:40--> 00:19:42

discomfort because when someone is

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

about to get do, they always, you know, they're much

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

anguish because of this. Now, if you put yourself in his place, then you will want someone to do this to you. Right

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

You will appreciate it.

00:20:02--> 00:20:05

So you use our

00:20:08--> 00:20:14

graciousness to be the instigator of this graciousness.

00:20:19--> 00:20:52

Prophet sallallahu Sallam summarize the soul and he said, for long, the mechanical arm goofy on your feet and allow the slave as long as no slave is where his slave eats. His brother, hustling and bustling his disciples one day to prepare some of the needs of one of some Muslims, some fellow came to us, some of us recently sent with them, some disciples and He said on your way stopped by Sabbath, Sabbath banana, those are the greatest.

00:20:53--> 00:21:00

Most mechanical scholars have a bustling, bustling, collaborative banana. Those are the greatest scholars of a busser.

00:21:02--> 00:21:16

During development, that's the second generation, the Sahaba are the first who do the second generation. So during them, even Hassan bostian 70 to 90 would be some of your greatest hero Buster sathyaraj.

00:21:20--> 00:21:48

Kufa Buster were the two major cities during that time before but that was, you know, so during the embassy, there was nobody in existence to begin with. But there was only gufram buster, who found out some of the great scholars like a center for enlightenment, but the starter would have more fit here Lena he's got the scars of a bus that I will have more

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

spiritual beings

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

must be in

00:21:55--> 00:21:59

the presence of a person must be also may have had some effect.

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

So how awesome was he so he said some some of his disciples were best man to prepare whatever it needs to be done. He said to them on your waist stop by saboteur bonanni. Another student of a cinematic

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

nanny

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

nanny told them

00:22:24--> 00:22:29

so he apologized and he told him I'm in Africa. He went back to Boston and he said well,

00:22:31--> 00:22:36

for us erotica so Hassan was the separate them go back and fill him yeah and this

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

is a homage meaning oh one with

00:22:42--> 00:22:48

no our is one eye damage is basically someone weak vision.

00:22:54--> 00:23:00

What are your weak vision and generally the weakness of vision is ours. So their blurry vision?

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

Anything in general,

00:23:07--> 00:23:19

very specific, is someone with a blurry vision. So the seven hours Don't you know that going out with him is better for you

00:23:22--> 00:23:23

to the Catholic after

00:23:27--> 00:23:35

about 174 the reports where he quoted the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his Capital One was because

00:23:36--> 00:23:40

the prophets of Allah Sallam said, What if he had an understanding

00:23:42--> 00:23:48

of Mohamad prophetically he had at that level via KHOU 11. And

00:23:49--> 00:23:59

he had an STD Shahada. And for me to work with my brother to prepare some of his needs is more beloved to me, than to make Africa this month that's the rest of the

00:24:00--> 00:24:02

for one month forever.

00:24:04--> 00:24:25

So so so so they went back and they told me about this and he came out with the yellow cap and came up with this does not necessarily mean that you have to leave particularly either some of Africa or maybe random Africa but if you're in the last 10 days of Ramadan

00:24:26--> 00:24:42

and someone else who could you know if there is like a problem for your brother and no one would be able to fix it except to you and then you leave your job and come back. But if someone else could do it and this is not the random article after says the routine article for the last 10 days, it will have been many find someone else to do it

00:24:43--> 00:24:53

will be flexible. That's why but if you're looking to see if you just intended to make Africa when he got into Africa, in terms of chemicals the company got into Africa,

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

at any time outside of Ramadan anytime because people could do whatever they want.

00:25:01--> 00:25:18

When someone asked you to come out, to help them out to take them to, you know, the opposite of Social Security, for instance, get out the application for them, maybe even your article, you know, you take your brother to the office of the Social Security, that an article put out an application for them in therapy.

00:25:20--> 00:25:24

Their kid is in the hospital, he wants to come out and

00:25:25--> 00:25:44

help them out in some way or another. When you do this, it is more, you know, reward worthy praise worthy value Africa has a prophet sallallahu Sallam said in this authentic credit for this, he considered it to be more worthy than Africa for one month in his master.

00:25:46--> 00:25:52

Okay, so that, that is the first segment, then we come to the second segment, which is about

00:25:54--> 00:25:56

Sahaba why mobile web

00:25:58--> 00:26:05

and whoever follows a path to seek knowledge to then allow and make easy for him a path for paradise.

00:26:19--> 00:26:34

And there will not be people that were gathering one of the houses of Allah to recite the book of Allah subhanaw taala to reflect on it together and study it together except for that the returning quality of the sent upon them.

00:26:37--> 00:26:41

In the Verizon abiword they are latency democracy optimal

00:26:43--> 00:26:52

reports. So the subpoena would descend upon them, the rathmore would cover them, the angels on surround them, and Allah subhanaw taala. Remember

00:26:55--> 00:27:00

with those that are with him, the Masada

00:27:01--> 00:27:04

mentions them amongst those who are with him.

00:27:06--> 00:27:09

And then the prophets Allah wa sallam said, from above.

00:27:14--> 00:27:33

So, the Minister be noticeable and he whose deeds slow him down, or who's actually slowing down, his lineage will not put him forward, he goes the soil slowing down his lineage, his ancestry will not put him forward.

00:27:36--> 00:27:46

So, here, you will find something that you may notice here is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is moving from one topic to the next to the third, you know, these are

00:27:47--> 00:28:20

three different topics. So what are the Amarillo musical Venus, this is a principle of the journey one of the principles of this journey to Allah, Allah is this it's a principle of the journey. The other two topics were about means to not principles that means to closeness to Allah subhanaw taala you want to get closer to Allah here all of these are means to get closer to online you want to get closer to Allah here all of this are means to get him closer to Allah. And this is a basically a principle of the jury.

00:28:21--> 00:28:30

Those means are different. So these are two different topics, you know, so basically studying the knowledge reciting the Quran and reflecting on the prayer.

00:28:32--> 00:28:48

seeking knowledge is a topic that's a little bit different from this topic, which is helping out your brothers and sisters. So do you know why apart is also known speaker like like this, versus having more sort of near topical?

00:28:50--> 00:29:04

division as a speech. So like, for instance, the speakers nowadays anybody who speaks nowadays they choose a title a topic, and then they address that topic. And if you branch off from that topic

00:29:05--> 00:29:07

that's considered to be defective.

00:29:08--> 00:29:13

Is branching off is going on tangency is this river. So do

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

you know

00:29:21--> 00:29:21

somebody else?

00:29:28--> 00:29:32

most comprehensive speech for profit surgical speeches, more sarcasm, yes.

00:29:37--> 00:29:38

He's anticipating

00:29:42--> 00:29:56

Why is the mixing of fabrics the mixing of fabrics is because of the oneness of the objective. The unicity here is the emissivity of the objective. So the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala is the objective liking the parameters

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

for finding different topics

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

Even for non Muslims, it's a little bit difficult for them to read the

00:30:07--> 00:30:41

article, because it is all about copy that is all about the oneness of Allah. And it is all about an invitation for you to come closer to God. So it mentions here a little bit of the stories of the ancient nations, for instance, it is basically to remind you of the consequences of the fires, the consequences of the faith and the consequences of rejection of the finance, he did, it mentioned some of the actions of a lot some of the attributes of a BA, to acquaint you with a loss of finance, to make you an infection, Allah

00:30:43--> 00:31:18

developed to be able to develop this person a relationship with Allah subhanaw taala by reflecting on his attributes and his actions, and when he talks about do this, don't do that some of the rulings would be mixed into the midst of all of this, he made some rulings, because those are the basically your commitment to the obedience of Allah is, is a is an expected result, the consequence of your belief in him if he believed that he created you, that it would only be expected that he would,

00:31:20--> 00:31:43

you know, comply to your compliance with his rulings is only an unexpected thing, if you believe that He created you. So it is all about one thing is the objective is one. So these are all different manifestations, you may have different things on the same highway. And this is when we say different things on the same highway. And so

00:31:46--> 00:32:26

in the prophets, teaching of the Sahaba, the ultimate goal is the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. So talk a little bit about this little bit about that, eventually, people have different strengths and weaknesses, people have different interests and inclinations, right. So some may get faster through the seeking of knowledge, some may get faster, through the pleasure of a loss of power, through helping out others that they may be given to this more than that some of the some people are not very didactic, you know, I have known people in Minnesota that were not particularly redacting, but they were more of a blessing for the community than any one of the students of knowledge.

00:32:27--> 00:32:35

Because it because it is ultimately about your worth, your value for the community for the

00:32:36--> 00:32:47

planet is not, it does not always have to be through you know, your your wealth of information or your your repository of information.

00:32:49--> 00:33:35

So, different manifestations, different lanes on the same highway leading to the ultimate destination, which is the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala to the pleasure of Allah is there anything you know, so, when we sit down and talk on the corporate system and thoughts with a Sahaba anything that would get us there, that is the target, so any anything that that is given us there, that is uniform tactically to them, because then theme of all of the the theme of all of the teachings of the prophecy is the opinions of the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala that is the general theme, that is the ultimate final destination and objective, the attainment of the pleasure

00:33:35--> 00:33:39

of Allah. All of this is about the professor of philosophy

00:33:41--> 00:33:54

and they tactic teaching topically classification classified title subtitles is basically he said john, you know, in the classroom tend to build up the infirm the the basically

00:33:58--> 00:34:01

Bank of information or

00:34:05--> 00:34:06

depository

00:34:09--> 00:34:33

that's like the people's knowledge and information, the amount of information, but for the prophets of Allah, some of it was not about this for the Sahaba It was not about this for the Sahaba It is about the utility of the information. So all of those, all of those topics that are been addressed here, the utility of them is is ultimately to

00:34:35--> 00:34:44

have different inclinations have different strengths. So give each one something that he could do it's like when the Prophet

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

said mansbach Hamiltonian

00:34:51--> 00:34:53

Have you today fast and can

00:34:54--> 00:34:54

I Oh

00:34:56--> 00:34:57

man.

00:34:59--> 00:34:59

You

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

A couple Like I said, I, O Messenger of Allah. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said,

00:35:07--> 00:35:12

the sixth person, then ever Buckman said via messenger of Allah, and then the Prophet also I'm certain, and

00:35:16--> 00:35:18

then I'm about to send

00:35:19--> 00:35:19

them the

00:35:21--> 00:35:26

no one will do them all except the view enter Paradise in one day, except that we will enter Paradise.

00:35:28--> 00:36:15

here basically, the focus of our co workers, the pleasure of Allah subhanaw. taala is not even his own self gratification. So it is it is not, he's not basically limited by one act of worship, where he finds his own comfort, because it is not about his own comfort. For us many times it is about our own comfort, and it is also about our own self gratification. So if I am a student of knowledge on so focused on this, then you know, because this is, I get my gratification from this, I get my sense of accomplishment. From this, I acquire more knowledge than I get a few more accomplished than I am, I am happy with myself, but probably it is not about himself. And it's not about discomfort. And it

00:36:15--> 00:36:59

is not about the self gratification, comfort, consumption allocation to different things. By the way, some people have comfort in particular acts of worship, they just like for O'Meara, or have, they like fasting, the labors that they have developed a relationship with this person. But the ultimate goal is the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. So to diversify the means to Allah shows that your ultimate goal is the pleasure of Allah and that you are not limited or bound, or by or restricted by any comfort zones, you're completely liberated, you're your target is the pleasure of a lie. You're liberated from your own inclinations from your own

00:37:00--> 00:37:41

wants and biases, so and desires. So sometimes it's about self gratification, because some people feel accomplished, you know, and sometimes it's about comfort, because some people like this controversial versus that act of worship. So some people that are involved in relief work, for instance, they believe that relief work, is it, you know, don't tell me about anything else. It is all about relief work, I have to you know, there are lots of Muslims that are hungry, lots of Muslims that are sick, I have to visit the sick, I have to go out to Africa, I have to dig wells for those people. But so but what about a little bit of my prayers also, you know, don't worry about

00:37:41--> 00:37:52

this, people are hungry, people are dying. So he is actually imprisoned in one set of ads, or in one day,

00:37:53--> 00:37:56

just like a student who's also in prison, that is

00:37:57--> 00:38:03

his own comfort zone. That gives him himself a sense of accomplishment and gratification.

00:38:05--> 00:38:29

So it's not only limited to students of knowledge, it is a lot of people, a lot of people that for example, what is the example of the person who is completely liberated from anything that binds him in the surgeon is the ultimate goal is the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala that he thinks anyway and he gets any, you know, right to the

00:38:30--> 00:38:31

end,

00:38:32--> 00:38:42

you know, anything that could push him forward, he's there he's, you know, you find them there, whether it is, you know, people are who,

00:38:43--> 00:38:46

you know what, what makes the Prophet Solomon better and offer them

00:38:48--> 00:39:01

So, anything you know, if we get any Forward, forward, closer to Allah subhanaw taala. I am there who is looking after the, you know, the old lady with a portfolio that we're working

00:39:02--> 00:39:32

on? It's everything it's, you know, relief work, yes, my prayers, yes, do you have Yes, charity has anything physical, whatever, completely liberated and that is basically when when your comfort zone is in the closure of a lie itself. So you feel the comfort in the pleasure of Allah, the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala could sometimes be attained faster, quicker, more efficiently

00:39:33--> 00:39:47

by hosting the guest, for instance, and sometimes by standing up in the last one third of the night, in prayer, sometimes by fasting sometimes.

00:39:49--> 00:39:57

It varies because it varies a bit depending on the different circumstances or the different situations and the needs of the own man the needs of the people.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

So here are the pros.

00:40:00--> 00:40:17

You know, someone gives us different options, the different pathways to the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala, the first set of actions are about helping out, our Muslim Brothers covering up their their parents, their shortcomings, there

00:40:18--> 00:40:19

is one set.

00:40:21--> 00:40:31

nomadic was once asked about someone who commits mistakes frequently, and should we still cover him up, he said that he heard that he that he

00:40:33--> 00:40:34

causes harm to the people,

00:40:36--> 00:40:41

then don't Don't, don't cover him up, let him receive His

00:40:43--> 00:40:53

punishment that he deserves. So people who are basically frequent frequent offenders the idea from an upset, which is

00:40:54--> 00:41:00

to cover up the faults of your Muslim brothers. This is for someone who commits errors, and frequently,

00:41:02--> 00:41:49

someone who's not harming the people. But if someone is already out there harming the people, then we make sure that it's justice so that the rest of the people also want to get relief from his ego. So sobering up does not mean that as our own way, not only uphold justice, but we tend to prefer forgiveness, we tend to prefer forgiveness as long as it does not give to the environment does not get to the ruler, I did not get to the judge can if we get them forgive it amongst ourselves, forgive it, if we can cover it up amongst ourselves cover it up. That's what the prophet sallallahu Sallam says, but once it reaches to the judge, when there is no no intercession whatsoever, and

00:41:49--> 00:42:32

anyone who intercedes once a preaches those words, is a sinner, because there is no position in the world of Allah subhanaw taala before it reaches the jugs, if we can cover our brother at UCC him, any cover image isn't worth the price of your clothes or your garment. See him doing Mr say any covering up with your own footwear garment. And then that would be praise word. That would be praised word. And because basically, and this is also a completely different paradigm from Western culture, where exposure is the default to the principal is his exposure, and they may think that this is good.

00:42:33--> 00:42:42

And sometimes the exposure is good. Like I said, if you have like a frequent offender, when sometimes exposure is good, but in general,

00:42:44--> 00:43:12

we we prefer covering up because look at, you know the news, look at the baby news and how much fun because when certain sins that become so prevalent in our society, that there are news above them every day, the people who win in accustom to those things, they will not really be repulsive anymore. So you hear about.

00:43:14--> 00:43:22

And I'm not going to talk about details, because some of the details could be disgusting, sometimes. But you see, the progression of immorality

00:43:24--> 00:43:32

could lead you to very, very, very awkward but dangerous and disgusting. And not only disgusting, but we're places.

00:43:34--> 00:43:44

And that is because people keep on talking about these things, when people pick up people exposing these things, and they're all around us. So how could

00:43:46--> 00:43:58

How could the US for instance, develop immunity to these things when we see them as norms of the society? How could the youth listen to their parents when they see that their parents and go to the worst kinds of immorality?

00:43:59--> 00:44:00

So this is

00:44:01--> 00:44:06

this is brilliant immorality and excessive exposure of

00:44:08--> 00:44:10

societies that can feed more of the

00:44:11--> 00:44:26

last thing, the purpose of olalia seven set, which is not another main, we're talking about different things on the highway, different pathways to get you to the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala, through all of those things, through all of those things.

00:44:27--> 00:44:38

But the last thing that I mentioned is this principle, which is an extremely important principle. If you're if you're slowing down your lineage, you will not put you forward.

00:44:39--> 00:44:47

And whoever is slowed down by his actions will not be hastened forward by his lineage.

00:44:48--> 00:44:55

And this is a very important aspect. How can it be in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala in my elbow Allah

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Allah Kuru become our medical

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

A lot of junk look at your bodies, your forms and

00:45:04--> 00:45:06

your bodies, but a lot of books

00:45:09--> 00:45:33

and your your wealth, but a lot of looks at your globe, your hearts and your actions. So ultimately in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala, this is what matters. The most, the most egalitarian system that could ever exist is the system of Islam. It is about your deeds, it is not about anything else. It's not about your strength, it's not about your looks. It's not a volunteer lineage.

00:45:34--> 00:45:38

It is about your deeds, and it is even more egalitarian

00:45:39--> 00:46:29

than you think. Because ultimately, it is about your heart. Because you're, you may have been given more strength than than me. So you could do more of the night prayers than I could. Because you're healthier, you're stronger, you could tolerate stands up for two hours, and I care. But ultimately, it is about the hearts. So whatever of the night prayers that came out of your heart, whenever it was done in complete devotion to Allah subhanaw taala. That is what you get rewarded for. And the multiplication of the reward is primarily dependent on sincerity, how much sincerity how much of devotion, invested in this action. So don't think that you know, you know, seven or seven people

00:46:29--> 00:47:00

will start to pray that they will take five minutes, all of them in San Jose was talking about the quality and the quantity seven people, they started to pray at the same time, all of them finish, you know, even if they prayed individually, they are not bound by the man. But all of them first after five minutes, after six minutes, don't think about the purpose and reward. You know, some of them may have not been enormous reward you or 7000 times more than others.

00:47:02--> 00:47:09

Some of them may have gotten very, very less out of the prayer. And some of them they have not done much on the prayer.

00:47:10--> 00:47:20

So if so, do you see anything more egalitarian than this? So I'll also proto is not only that is not only removing,

00:47:22--> 00:47:23

basically, what is it?

00:47:29--> 00:47:33

Use scientific terminology, confounding factors.

00:47:36--> 00:47:39

So that not only are you moving,

00:47:40--> 00:48:04

you know, the wealth and lineage, all of it. But even a loss of power for Allah is adjusting what you're doing, adjusting what you're doing, based on the devotion in your heart, because yes, he gave some people more strength than others. Yes, he gives more like a greater opportunity than others.

00:48:05--> 00:48:12

We get this example before we walked in Brooklyn, New York, and someone else grew up in Mecca,

00:48:13--> 00:48:15

you were given,

00:48:16--> 00:48:27

like two different sets of opportunities that are completely different, far away from each other. Basically, you have the harm, you have 100,000 times

00:48:29--> 00:48:32

the problem, so by the time you catch up here in Brooklyn,

00:48:34--> 00:48:35

but

00:48:36--> 00:48:39

it is all getting readjusted.

00:48:40--> 00:48:41

So

00:48:42--> 00:48:47

the value of these actions you are being told about the values of these actions,

00:48:49--> 00:49:16

the absolute values of the actions compared to their their likes, their their counterparts, so you're comparing action versus action. But ultimately, ultimately, there is the point when a loss of data adds in the factor of the piety of the heart, the devotion, the sincerity, it's a completely different calculation. It is a completely different calculation.

00:49:17--> 00:49:30

That is missing people talk about this, you know when the profits or loss of themselves. If I walk with my brother and procure some of these things, it's better for me than to make Africa from this master of mine for a month.

00:49:31--> 00:49:33

Professors are telling us

00:49:35--> 00:49:50

that your calculations will not be it whatever calculations that you know, that you perceive, will not be the calculations that allows us to measure for you on the Day of Judgment.

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

So my Buddha used to be in a simple one, we said that the armor of the heart the actions of the heart,

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

What are more consequences in the museum in your sphere of good deeds and bad deeds than the actions of the Bible?
