Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
about so this Hobbes's have his number for the one of Irvine and Elliot from the law, you know, we have one more hobbies to be done with our wine.
And then nine more to be done with 50 hobbies collection of event of neuralgia that included the 42 of the 78 additional ones in his commentary on a lot of rain in the vehicle gentleman heckum, the compendium of knowledge and wisdom. And this hadith is reported from Avi Mohammed Abdullah Ahmed of Nevada, or the Allahu anhu of the lie of non revenue loss of a loved one who
corner corner sort of noise olalia Sallam
said the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him said
let me know a hadoken hatay akuna tobon Lima G to be its assurance parties shall be easier for you to remember to memorize, none of you truly believes until his desires are subservient to that which I have brought.
Mmm and now we said we have related it.
in GitHub, I'll help
with a chain of narrators. Because it's it is it says here are our inner who, but it should be away now, who it should be in the passive voice. The the Arabic should be in the passive voice row winner who natural winner who and then this should have been in the passive voice, this has been related to us, or this has been we have been told this
in our hearing of the book of heads, and heads is by Manasa democracy.
Allah tala it's a different
one known scholar who was a fapy hanza head and mahad this
So in the moment now we
have this hadith related to him. But the heavies were the Hadees was originally originally collected by Abu Iam in his book and arbaeen which is different from his book of hellyer when I'm I have this book, which is an idea
which has many hobbies that pertain to spirituality and pertain to Zakat and Raka purify purifiers of the soul and so on. And the has a collection called that arbaeen and his arbaeen collection when I said that I will only include in this collection those are hobbies that are authentic and have been approved by the scholars of Hadith and accepted with
approval by all of the scholars.
So when I reported this hadith in his book at arbaeen and Bharani also reported this hadith
and remember now we Ramallah said it is Hassan Sahih
meaning it is sound and authentic. Hassan so here we did talk about Hassan sahoo. He said that Hadees that is Maqbool that is acceptable that you act upon it is either Hassan or Sofia. And Hassan has levels and so he has level when the scanner is used constantly. It is either that they're trying to say it's either this or that or they are they are trying to say it is somewhere in the middle between Hassan and somebody that's the highest level of hassle, the lowest level of salary, because like usual in these things, this is not exact science. This is not math. So when howdy Thea reaches the
level of the lowest rankings of the sofy. And it isn't the highest rankings of the house and then it will be in this area where you could call it handsome you know very handsome
you know Sahaja and so, the scholar is used Hassan Safi and the first one who use this terminology was whom was who term is he as we said before, there may be the the terminology of Hassan was not really established. But
prior to it there mizzi the scholars used to refer to the hustle and most most of the hustle that the tirmidhi consider the hustle, the scholars refer to it as life week.
And that is why you hear love talking about the scholars acting upon a lot of the hobbies that are weak, which does not mean that they will completely ignore the weak hobbies, that has not been promoted to be enhancing from the time of utter mizzi onward, but in in, in, in matters of a camera effect or the rulings
that police will not have authority, which is the Baba if that has not been promoted, if it was promoted to the level of Hassan according to the terminology of the scholars from it to mizzi onward, then it would have authority. In fact, because the scholars of Hadith had agreed that the lowest level that we will go to in accepting the Hadith and referring it to the prophet and talking about, you know, this being coming from the prophet in
basically an unacceptable through an acceptable chain is an Hasson which is you know, and has undergone, he would be the lowest level person because of collaborators, you know, other hobbies that corroborated this person or this hadith to the to the point of being Hasson So, because of the corroborating corroboration, and because of
support to the meaning from other and hobbies, the hobbies becomes lifted to the level of Hassan lavera Hassan because of
basically, it is it is propped up
by other traditions and other hobbies. So,
back to this point is just that, whenever your cousin or Sahil you want to understand that this is acceptable in everything, by efe, if you're here by if nowadays, if you hear about if we're talking about the recent, the modern terminology, because we now have the you know, from the time of autonomy, z, which is the beginning of the third century after his era, there maybe is from the layer of the students of the mom, such as Buddha, Buddha, and Bukhari and Muslim, this layer was in the beginning of the third century after the user of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. From that time onwards, were using bife for the really life and has an answer here, we're using them for the
acceptable or mock Buddha Hadith, that we will take and apply in areas of physics in our feeder and this gear, you know, purifiers of, you know, purification and so on. Now, the by efe will be left as a different category, that by itself will be then sub divided into two categories. There is the belief that is acceptable in Florida in our man, basically,
virtuous deeds or these a virtue. And then there is the hobbyist that is not acceptable period, which is the hobbyist that has some liars in the chain, extremely weak or hobbies, hobbies that have liars in the chain, or hobbies that are in conflict with established values, Islamic values, Islamic teachings, those are these will be considered in that category of life that will not be accepted in anything. But there is this category of the eaf which is the higher level of viiith. Usually it is because some of the narrators have been less
punctual, less precise, less accurate in their narration of the Hadees
But they were not not accused of lying. And this is the layer of hobbies that we will take not established new concepts or teachings
but rather to corroborate a pre existing concepts and deeds, you know, how do you talk about the reward of this or that the word of that things that have been already established as as part of the deen some, sometimes hobbies may be more to the point.
More motivational. So we still use them even though they are by because we're not using them to establish any new concept. The concept is established through Sahaja but we're using them because the Hadith is more concise. The phrasing is more powerful. The Hadith is more motivational. So we're using it basically for inspiration for motivation and things like that. But this Hadith, whether it is Hassan Sahib
or is some of the scholar has said that it does not really reach the level of Hassan Sahaja. But whether it is this or that the meaning has been corroborated by or has been supported by so many as and operand and so many ahaadeeth in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So why why would we study reported even if we did not think as an impairment now he said that it is has insomnia, why would we still report it and teach it and learn it and you know, pass it down the generations and because the meaning is very powerful, very motivational and very to the point, Leo minowa hadoken Guna Hello, Tata Halima j to be none of you truly believes until his desires are subservient to that
which I have brought abroad. If we want to look at the literal meaning of the Hadith and tried to come up with other translations, law, you may know a hadoken law is, you know, to say that he will not you men, he will not have faith or you will not be a believer, a hadoken one of you. So one of you will not have faith hat until yagoona Hawa who his Hauer what is our
leaning inclination, inclination,
Actually the desire how most predominantly is used to mean proclivity. Because proclivity usually refers to desire or refer to
for or like in golf or inclination towards things that are bad, and we have the translator here in the back. So,
and how I usually is bet, Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah, nazjatar mm and half I'm a comma b, when an epsilon is Anil, however, for in agenda he'll know, as for he who have from a camera D, what this car from a camera be mean, feared the position of his Lord, or feared his standing before his Lord, the fear the time where you will be asked to stand before your Lord on the Day of Judgment, and questioned by your Lord for mmm and half a McComber of D as for he who fears the time where he will stand before his Lord, why not have enough sand and he forbade himself from Howard. He,
he curved his how he stopped his how, how here is is certainly something that is can dimmable right and use what he how many, Allahu Allah? Allah subhanaw taala said, Have you seen him who took for his Lord, his own? Hauer?
So most of the time how in the Quran or the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has negative connotations, because for most of us, however, has negative connotations.
You reach that level,
because the word of the house per se,
take away the connotations that have been established through the Quran and the Sunnah. The word that however, if you strip off all of the other, you know, connotations that were established through culture through usage, whether the usage is in the primary center or usage and terminology of the scholars, but if you just focus on how in the language alone, it will mean like and or desire is liking or desire, negative or positive? No, it's neither negative nor positive, is neutral,
neutral, because your liking could be good, or it could be bad. So how is neutral, but because for most of us, our how our inclinations lead us astray, or
basically get us in trouble
is, you know, urges to do things that are inferior, even if not haraam, but they are inferior, you know, you could make for example, eating, you know, your house is to continue to eat,
or they keep on eating and drinking and you know,
and that that's inferior, because you shouldn't have that restraint. Stop yourself. So anyway, how is neutral, but it has been used in the Shara in the terminology of the Quran and Sunnah in a negative way. Because most of the time our hammer leads us astray. until we reach that level of conformity conforming our Hauer
with the will of the Divine or mushiya de la Sol gel maravilla may have bought Allahu Akbar, basically, your house is in accordance, in conformity with
what I have brought with that which I have brought, that's the prophets of Allah, saying, your house is in conformity is in accordance with that which I have brought. So do you want to repeat this hobby, so that you remember the hobbies because it is very important hobbies, and you want to be able those sorts of hobbies, to be able to relate them verbatim in Arabic and English, or whichever language but you want to be able to communicate those hobbies, and you want to be able to have it's very important for the student of knowledge also, that you know, where hobbies is, so that, you know, you know where to go, you know, for the hobbyist and for the explanation, like I said, the the
explanation of a lot of our innovia is in general aromaticum compendium of knowledge and wisdom by of neuralgia but kamberi The book has been translated and it is available in English. So just say after me, meanwhile hajikko
hot corner however
tabali magic to be.
Okay, so, how do you get to the point where your however, will become in accordance with that which the prophet SAW someone had brought to you?
How do you get to the point where your house tells you wake up to pray, you know,
your that is your Hauer basically your disposition
you know, the
discipline, it's, it's an
image I had, striving, in fact, you know, a lot of people you know, sometimes we will are a little too hasty judging hobbies. But the hobby, this hadith is, has been authenticated by many of the scholars of Hadith, how these reported by opening a jar from a visa or the Allahu anhu and it is an Gianna severe by lmct and it has been authenticated by superlight Bernie, and the Hadees
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said on after in jihad, and Karla and today hidden upcycle
of the jihadi into the hidden knapsack our house the highest form of
jihad or the best form of jihad is to strive against your enough's your ego and your how which is your proclivity or your
here would be bad disposition
or inferior disposition
so the prophets of Salaam said you you make this module harder
he said this hadith you know it is Indiana sorry vitamin C UT in originally reported by Evelyn ajar from a visa authenticated by Fannie Mae a lobster mercy on all of them. What are the Aloha visa? And may Allah be pleased?
Is there a problem if you say are the alarm on someone other than it was there if I say rhodiola and Abdullah mark
there is no problem.
But usually you wouldn't want to do this. frequently. Sometimes you could do it but you because the scholars have already the those honorifics or those like
different forms of the art the scholars have already designated. And this is not something that's designated by the profit zone. But these are advocates that we learned from the scholars. So some of the audio cell numbers for the Prophet sallallahu
you could see some noise send them to other prophets and messengers, but this color is usually say alehissalaam for other prophets and messengers so that they give some distinction more distinction to our Prophet sallallahu Sallam the best and the greatest and the master of all of the prophets.
So these are a Salaam for the other prophets of VC sallallahu Sallam usually for Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and then raviolo Hanuman may Allah be pleased with him or her. That is one of those hobbies. And then Rahim Allah Mia loves the mercy on them, for the righteous Muslims and the rest of the Muslims, but it would be okay to say
to the point where you know, the Prophet sallahu wa salam when he
came and gave charity, he said a llama sundiata le Avi alpha, Allah suddenly means bless the family of Avi alpha. So even with nonprofits and messengers, you could sign you know, but don't say this in front of somebody because you have to get beaten.
But, but it is not, you know, this is this is this is the heart. So is there a problem with you that make the offers someone's a bit to be blessed by Allah, there is no problem. But we respect the way the scholars use those to give distinction to people that deserve it, the prophet and then the rest of the prophets and then the Sahaba and then the scholars and the writer, righteous believers.
this hadith is important of total Jihad and yuja Nuff said unto Jaden upcycle, how act how Anuj de Marana
and to generate an upcycled of jihadi into the hidden upcycle HVAC the best form of jihad or the highest form of jihad is to strive against your enough's and your infinite your enough's. knifes is knifes. Everybody, you know, and this is particularly important because Muslims
need to, you know, know certain words in Arabic. And then those words do not need to be translated afterwards, because there are certain words that don't have counterparts and other languages. So, you know, Muslims throughout the world, they know the word neffs because the word knifes you know, it's very hard to find the translation for it. In English, if you want. If you must find the word, then it would be ego.
Self is is Yeah. It usually naps refers to
you know, usually naps is used in a negative connotation.
So, usually you would want translated as equal because it has been used in a negative context, but it does mean the self it does mean the self but when it is being used in the negative context, you may use the word ego.
What do you think?
When it is being used in negative and negative context, you could use the word ego
But if you say enough, then it should be it should be good for you know the if you're in front of like Muslim audience
because the Yeah, that is the machine or the errata azeema is the willpower the will is the mushiya rod. So, it is through Mujahid, to jahad Mexico where you keep on making this Mujahideen of Uranus and your house until your house
You know your Hauer becomes conforms. And then your Hauer will lead you to Allah subhanaw taala summarizes predecessors He said, If I was if I wanted to disobey Allah, I won't be able to.
And this is at a level where, you know, this obedience, you become a verse, this obedience that if, if you wanted to this obey, you know, your aversion to this obedience prevents you.
So you're, you're averse to the temptations that all of the beauties and the glitters and the enjoyments and the temptations, the carving of the fleshy, the bodily the lower temptations, and even the more, you know,
abstract temptations, propositional temptations, success, leadership, celebrity recognition, all of these temptations, whether it's lower or higher, anything, you're just averse to them,
naturally averse to them. So, if there is a position of where, you know, people seek seek leadership for recognition and for celebrity or there is, you know,
you know, some task and whoever does this task or some
basically job or function in the community, and whoever does this job gets recognition and, you know, fame.
The fact that it brings about recognition and fame makes you a very stupid,
natural, naturally, your disposition becomes such that it leads you to the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. And anything that can distract that would distract you, from Allah subhanaw taala would be averse to it.
Okay, but we're not there. Let's be honest, we're not there. And that's why and hamdulillah that all of the scholars understood this Hadith, I mean, none of you will have
pretty perfect the man complete a man until his desire his inclination or disposition is in accordance with that which I have brought to you. There are many,
many hobbies and an app that would support to this understanding
that the Prophet is not talking about the basis and foundation of Eman because if this is about ABC, man, the foundation of Eman then we're all
Because we have we been able to Team our house to control our house, take care of our house and make our house in accordance with what Allah loves. So coming to the master to pray or waking up in the middle of the night to pray becomes a lovable thing. Like, you know, an enjoyment and the Messiah becomes like a hated thing to you. Not because you're restraining yourself
if you're you, you become a verse to a Muslim.
So we're not there but 100 Allah that He may you know, Eman is
is not denied here completely, but the the complete and the perfect the man that is what is being denied here that you will not have complete and perfect email. Now.
This level is the same level as in the other Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where he said, Have you reportable Bukhari and Muslim from Anasazi alone who were the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said selasa mokona fee was the halacha Eman, three things whoever has them will find the sweetness of faith and he akuna la hora sudwala
balay merci wahama for Alon His messenger to be more love to him, or beloved by him than anything else, when you have been Mr. Li, boo la la, and to love his fellow man for nothing but for Allah for Allah sake, when he can honey, oh, the illegal freak about an hour minimum, America when he opens up an hour, to hate to go back into disbelief after Allah saved him from it as much as he needs to be thrown into the hell into the fire.
Now, when this is the case, you find the sweetness of faith, the sweetness of faith, will give you this pleasure in any thing that you do for Allah subhanaw taala it becomes pleasant, pleasurable, enjoyable, anything that you do for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and your naps will have this, you know,
him, you know, azeema the resolve to do more and more for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala for the time being, enjoy
the Mujahideen. Because then once you have that could be enjoyable, right? Like in which I have that which is striving could be enjoyable. Isn't that true? Like when when you're working hard, because at least that at least you have an aspiration to have something to look up to. When you're training for the Olympics. That module had you didn't get the prize yet. But that you know what hard work, that module had that hard work striving, struggling?
Wouldn't people enjoy it, people do enjoy this, you are you we're working harder than you enjoy that you're working hard. The same thing, our sweetness will be in this module harder. Until
when until the you reach that level, that ranking where the act itself will be pleasant. The very Salah will be pleasant. So there is no matter whether you're being pulled to it
you're being like called to it by your own disposition.
May Allah smart Allah, you know,
Grant his patience and resolve and power, determination, strength to get
there even to get to to the shore. to at least get a little wet with that sweetness.
normal person cannot do it.
Yeah, but certainly Allah subhanaw taala makes us have a little bit of that taste so that he will encourage us to do a little more, don't you have, like when he says, we, you know, we do get this sometimes, right? Like when you when you're in a bar that when you wake up and pray like to order cars or when you're doing like an act of charity and so on, don't you feel the sweetness the
the everybody? However, what what we're talking about here is that you're always you're always being called to these things, you know, so is you know how kids have this extreme
attachment to video games.
You know, and,
but it will feel like this, you will feel like he you know, we're not making the comparison between acts of obedience and video games, but I'm saying that you're you're pulled to it. Life kids are being pulled to something they cherish and the love and the
some of the concepts that are that relate to this, the issue of sadness, that we talked about, we talked about the concept of sin and there are a few issues pertaining to the sin of the prophet SAW Southern that which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had brought to us that we want to quickly go over. One of the issues that pertain to
The son of the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
it's important to understand is that
we talked about the son being of two types in Jubilee and Santa suraiya, Santa Clarita, so not a bad, you know, there's another shot IE so now the religious sun and the sun is habits that are which are basically the norms of the Arabs during the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
he ate like them and he acted like them and so on and so forth. Now,
some of the Sahaba rizwana laleham reached the level where even the habits of the prophets Allah suddenly became because of their love for the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Not the Shara isn't Not, not not the sooner that is part of this lab. But the sooner the his way, his lifestyle, his way of doing things, that is not necessarily part of his lab. So for instance, tells us that you know, he sat down one day and have dinner with the prophet SAW Solomon the prophecy was
the they they had like
food that has squash in it pieces of squash in the food, the bat. And then fatahna visa sent me a clip about the bat for john to attack the bow who are who been a day he was from osito head with the bat. So so as I sat down with the premises on and there was this little pieces of squash, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was, you know, picking those pieces of cloth because he likes squash. So he, you know, so he was given those pieces class, and then Anna's kept on picking those pieces of squash and putting them closer to the Prophet saws on because he noticed that that he is liking the squash. And then Anna said that which is the, you know, the significant part of the story for our
discussion here. And I said an ever since I loved squash
and ever since I loved squash, that was very possible. And don't tell me that this is overdone or anything like this. If you love someone so much, you will love what they love. And it will it will just it will just be natural. So the amount you could imagine the amount that Anna's loved the profits of a sudden we're gonna serve a company the profit was on them for 10 years, he never said to me to something that I did, why have you done it and to something that I did not do? Why have you not done it? You could imagine being the
you know, in the company of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for 10 years serving him
you know, so,
the the love that Anna's would have had for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam being this young man, young boy and then young man
is not miserable.
So, here and as
anuses as is basically
melted, you know,
his his likings and his wants and his desires and everything is now in accordance. Not only was the deen that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had brought, but with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself to the point of liking the foods that he liked and this is a level of hub that I asked a Lost Planet Allah to grant us
the other concept also the so in this case, you do see like, like I said today and so you do see like some fellows that like to wear white robes for instance or like to wear Imam and so on.
White is is prescribed the soap is not particularly prescribed, because I just said that can I kind of have the theability visa supplement companies that the most preferable type of clothing to the prophet SAW a sudden was the long shirt commies. So coming in so long shirt used to be down to here
so and then and she said that the model the color you liked the most was white. so far that is the profits liking right?
But so far have we been told that this is part of the deen
now because the prophets liking it does not necessarily have to be part of this
He likes squash, his liking squash part of the team. No.
Okay. So these are personal preferences, the attire of the process and someone who's not much different from the attire of the rest of Christ, right or wrong. We have not been told that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam changed his wardrobe, after he became a prophet. And he, you know, abandoned the attire of Christ, who is pretty much the same attire, right? They used to wear imama, they used the word Archimedes is sort of the same thing. So, so far, that is not part of the deen, that is, you know, that is the Prophet, you know, did things like everybody
in his time, and from his culture did the same thing is like people in his time and from his culture, that that is not part of the day. But when you try to imitate the prophets, Allah, Allah is Allah, when he tried to imitate the prophecies of them without excessive lives
is then that should not be nurtured, not be condemned, because that's a sign of love. And most of the scholars will say that you're not getting a reward for the Imam, for instance.
But you're given a reward for your love that made you put diamond.
Because you're putting the Imam on out of love for the person of the Prophet of Islam. And when people love someone they imitate, emulate them, you know, this, celebrities and how people like, try to imitate them.
So that is what you're getting rewarded for. It would be condemned if it becomes excessive. So now, you know, like,
You don't want to like drive cars, and you want to have a mule, like the mule of the prophets, Allah Solomon, call it, you know, the same name of the mute of the processor. Isn't that becomes, it'd be, because because of the difficulty this would cause you, or things of that nature would cause you, someone will, will tell you, you know, do you think that this is part of the deal. And if you say no, it's not part of the mean, then, you know, wearing imama is probably not going to cause you hardship, and it's not going to cause you trouble, but if,
if if it becomes excessive, then it does not become
the difference here is that, you will do things that are extremely awkward, that are not extremely inhibiting, inhibiting from progress, you know, you need to drive a car, you need to do these things. So, that is a signature layer. But when is it? When is it at least partially condemned bubble? When you were imama? And you were a white soap? And
you you basically perfect the looks?
When is it partially partially condensable? Or can dimmable in some sense?
When you're doing IC opening, not not when you're gonna say oh, by the way, yes, when you guys want to dodge the traffic and please take off your coffees because you look very ugly doing this. Like it looks very bad and very, like
so that that's a good one. But I was thinking,
but what I wanted to say, when is it condensable the you know, when you put on your cool theory or Imam and your soap, and, you know, you put like a lot of emphasis on perfecting the look.
I'm not sure.
And I think
Okay, the suitability, okay, it's a different discussion, we could talk about the suitability or non suitability in certain occasions and and so on. But it is a different discussion and it is not a completely unacceptable discussion. There is room for talking about suitability, however, yes
You know, like we talked about, you know, some of the humbleness to
stay away from,
you know, that was
given away from any
forbearances to be easygoing.
You know, to be truthful in your speeches and certainly do not cheat.
And when you look at some of our designs, you'll find cumbersome this, because we have been
dazzled by the layers of so the concept of minimalism, that that is a beautiful concept that is not really popular, back home in our countries, you don't think you don't find people thinking of minimalism as a concept to have less to own this? You know, who are the billionaires back home that act like what's his name, Warren Buffett, live in a normal home drive like a normal car, you find the big palaces and so
why are we basically sidelining the sun as the sun and that are integral to the value system of Islam.
And, and we only take the seminar that is easy to do.
Because, you know, you dress like Mohamed Obama and you become the, you know, shackle Islam very quickly, because
right, the goofy the soap and so on, that is absolutely fine,
you know, you see my dress, it is absolutely fine to do this,
you need the coffee,
this is not a problem.
But then at the same time, everything else has to fall into place not to fall in place necessarily that you have to reach perfection in all of those aspects of center that we talked about, but you have to be striving as hard in all of them. So that it is so that we are not people of the exterior only, which is
detrimental to our spirituality
at least the gap should not be a huge gap.
At least the gap should not be a huge gap. And you should be striving and you should be putting a lot more effort on the other aspects.
Maintain your your whites, so it is fine. But if if you if that if you're contented by that, then that's a big problem.
Not saying any one of you guys is is just using you as examples. If you're contented by that urine, you're you're
you, you are now in a big problem. Because
And not only that, we're not just saying that you're contented by that. We're not talking about Hippocrates. We're not talking about like someone you know, like
back home in our countries, if you want to see people getting dressed, like practicing Muslim maniac, like approximates them to get people's money and so on. And people then blame practicing muslims for that he's actually doing this this is someone who has already corrupted he's doing it for that because, you know, this look exudes trust and you know,
we're not talking about this. We're talking about people that that want Allah and His messenger and love Allah and His messenger. But we want people who want to learn in this messenger lover lies and His Messenger messenger to be balanced in their pursuit of a lot His Messenger and to not
You know, have any, now have a large gap between the exterior and the interior,
between the exterior and the interior. And that is extremely important.
These other Sun sunon are more important than the suddenness of the exterior. If you're working on all of them, then it is commendable, that you are also trying to emulate the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in the center of the exterior, which is called the daddy of the external manifestations of his guidance, subtle laws and whether they are part of Islam or not part of Islam. So if you dress like in a longer shirt, you know, out of modesty, that is part of Islam as a man,
if you dress in a longer shirt out of modesty, that is part of Islam.
But like I said, dynamic is just a matter of love, and you get the reward of the love, you don't get the reward of the act itself, since it is not a part of
your issue that we that I wanted to mention
is something that you need to propagate, to basically educate people about
the word the sun night itself does not mean an optional or preferable act. And that's what a lot of Muslims think. Right? Because this is the terminology that the fuqaha use the car and also the Union, the Madison and the people, the scholars of our tea that they use cemetery for two different things. The four kaha use the word sanitary refer to optional preferable things.
None of them none of them meant by this that anything that came from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the body of the traditions of the prophets or seller, which is called certain some of it is you know, actual sadhana some of the visit is verbal, certain oral traditions you know, the the actions of the prophets of Salaam are the tasks, the approvals this body, that is called Sunnah, that did not mean that all of this is preferable and optional. Otherwise, the concept of thought or assumed would be void, the concept of obeying the Prophet would be void. If anything that Prophet brings to you is optional. You can take it or leave it, then where is the concept of a to Allah to
obey Allah and obey His Messenger, if you're always having an option? So many times when people you want to clarify this to people, if you're using the word certain that refer to optional acts, that's fine. You could do this if you want, did you do your center prayer? That's fine, you could do this here in this context that means on optional, but keep in mind and be careful about this, that this does not mean that the body of prophetic traditions,
statements, actions and approvals of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is all optional and all preferable because that body includes that which is you know, were given that which is certain and that which is MOBA, you know, and then on the other side, disliked and prohibited.
That was about what we wanted to talk about today about this particular hobbies like amino hadoken, pata equina. However, with a polymer j two v, one of you shall never have complete belief until his disposition is in accordance with that which I have brought.
That which he had brought is the Quran and the Sunnah. Yes.
Emphasize so much on the external and they didn't care about the internal and then you have those Muslims, which is focused on the external
side, I would say it's all about the interior and
Yes, thanks exterior and the interior and the Jews and the Christians and that talk is is valid to a great extent. When we talk about the exterior, we're not keep in mind that there are certain things that are the work of the exterior, but this is not what we mean when we're talking about the exterior and we're talking about the exterior which is have you ever heard, the exterior manifestations, the look, but there are certain big things
That are acts of the exterior, Salah itself is an act of the exterior, yes, you need to be in a need to have a present heart when you pray, but it is an act of the experience
is not important. So, so,
our problem is is that
we tend to love dichotomies
and create conflict between
now opposing concepts, concepts that we perceive as opposing or that we make opposing. So, the concept of the exterior and the interior is a concept that is not the economist and Islam it is in complete harmony, that is why the Sahaba did not have this issue, the Sahaba he did not find So, Hobbes talking to each other about you're a person of the exterior Person of the interior, you focus so much on the exterior you focus so much on the interior, because for the Sahaba it came very natural and fluid hero It was not difficult to because devotion made them conform to the deen you know, the exterior and the interior simultaneously harmoniously without any conflict. Now, nowadays,
we like to create those dichotomies So, that it was some people that you know, this is that we keep on you know, accusing each other of being
this or that, you know, what people talk about
those concepts are not in conflict whatsoever and the Salah have
is an indication on the Salah have a bath in the salon of the exterior, the you know, rectification of the exterior and interior are basically contingent upon one another, and
actually dependent on one another, dependent on one another, keep in mind that Salah has,
affects the bottom as well, that when when you work on the exterior, basically when you dress like the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and
you know you, you grow your beard, even though this is not just a hobby of ours, this is an action, and you do these things that will have an impact. So it's a mutual feedback between the exterior and the interior. Because you will, after you do this, and you you have this look, then you will at least be shy in front of yourself. You shy yourself into obedience and commitment and having more,
you know, have the best out of the interior because you you say to yourself, you know, you look good. But, you know, what about those feelings in your heart? What about this pride? What about this arrogance? What about, you know, your
eagerness for recognition or for praise? And why don't you also work on this so that you're not hypocritical and the fear from hypocrisy, particularly when you push the exterior,
your fear from hypocrisy will also lead you to simultaneously Excel or strive to improve your interior. If you're doing them hand in hand, hand in glove together, you're doing a good job, but if you are contented with the exterior, that you have got the perfect look. And you have got also the reputation that this is like a good man, a good practicing man. And then you
sit back and relax and you know,
forget about the myriad of diseases that you have internally is then that is extremely consumable. That's in the consuming and most of the time, you know inshallah, if you rely on Allah subhanaw taala. And you see Kira is now working on the exterior and given the improving the exterior will enable you to pull forward the interior, because you will fear from hypocrisy. You will feel that fear from hypocrisy is essential important. If not be more like I said, I caught you know 30 of the messengers of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, all of them feared from hypocrisy.
See, ya know, so that fee for frequency is essential.
