Episode Notes

On the authority of Abu Dharr al-Ghifari (r) from the Prophet (s) from his Lord, that He said:
O My servants! I have forbidden dhulm (oppression) for Myself, and I have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another. O My servants, all of you are astray except those whom I have guided, so seek guidance from Me and I shall guide you. O My servants, all of you are hungry except those whom I have fed, so seek food from Me and I shall feed you. O My servants, all of you are naked except those whom I have clothed, so seek clothing from Me and I shall clothe you. O My servants, you commit sins by day and by night, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness from Me and I shall forgive you. O My servants, you will not attain harming Me so as to harm Me, and you will not attain benefiting Me so as to benefit Me. O My servants, if the first of you and the last of you, and the humans of you and the jinn of you, were all as pious as the most pious heart of any individual amongst you, then this would not increase My Kingdom an iota. O My servants, if the first of you and the last of you, and the humans of you and the jinn of you, were all as wicked as the most wicked heart of any individual amongst you, then this would not decrease My Kingdom an iota. O My servants, if the first of you and the last of you, and the humans of you and the jinn of you, were all to stand together in one place and ask of Me, and I were to give everyone what he requested, then that would not decrease what I Possess, except what is decreased of the ocean when a needle is dipped into it. O My servants, it is but your deeds that I account for you, and then recompense you for. So he who finds good, let him praise Allah, and he who finds other than that, let him blame no one but himself.

00:03:50--> 00:04:34

The Hadith is narrated by Mario de la one he narrates from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who inherits from his Lord, that Allah subhanho wa Taala said, All my servants, I have forbidden upon myself, and I have made it forbidden amongst you. So do not oppress one another, all my servants, all of you are a stray, except those who I have guided, so six guides, so seek guidance from me and I shall guide you, all my servants, all of you are hungry, except for those who I feed. So seek food from me, and I should feed you, all my servants, all of you are unclothed, except for those Why have clothes, so seek clothing from me and I shall call here, all my servants, you commit

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

sins by day and night, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness from me, and I shall forgive you. All my servants, you will not attain harming me, as to harm me, and you will not attain benefiting me so as to benefit me, all my servants. If the first of you and last of you, the humans of you in the agenda view. We're all as pious as the most pious heart of any individual amongst you. This would not be this was

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

Not increased my kingdom, even a little, all my servants, if the first of you the last of you, that humans have you the agenda view, we're all as wicked and wretched as the most wicked heart of any individual amongst you, then this would not decrease my kingdom, even a little, all my servants, if the first of you, the last of you, the humans have you the jinn Have you are all to stand together in one place and ask of me, and I were to give everyone what he requested, then that would not decrease from what I possess, except what is decreased from the ocean when a needle is dipped into it, all my servants it is by your deeds that I account for you, then I shall fully pay for pay you

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

for them. And he who finds good

00:05:43--> 00:05:54

thermophysical media that I shall compensate you for it. And he who finds good, let him praise a lot. And he who finds Other than that, let him blame no one but himself. How do you this narrative about your mom as soon

00:05:55--> 00:06:20

as I mentioned to you last week, this is the second longest heavy in the outline of my middle going along. And so many points packed in here. The truth is, I'm going to try to cover all of them today to finish off this heavy. But if I decided to spend a little bit more time we can easily make a third and possibly even a fourth part of this one 100th word here to be honest with you, but inshallah we'll cover some ground today and finish off this idea in today's class.

00:06:22--> 00:06:25

In last week's class, we talked about high difficulty.

00:06:26--> 00:07:00

What is it high difficulty? What are the different names given to a high difficulty? What's the essence of difficulty the difference between a divine revelation and the Quran all these discussions were in last week's class. Similarly, we started off with the first part of this hadith in the harem to Vilma LFC. I have made a haram upon myself. And so you should not oppress one another. And he spends a lot of time talking about video. And today we move forward with the next part of the video. But before I continue on, just as a reminder, when you read the words, in this Hadith,

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

and generally in

00:07:03--> 00:07:44

the Hadith, the footsies the divine narrations they're so powerful in their spiritual message that even just by reading the words and focusing on the translation, it feels like you're being punched repeatedly in your chest. Allah subhana wa tada is directly speaking to you. And he's saying yeah, you buddy. Oh my servants. Yeah, buddy. Oh my servants. And even when he says that we sinned even in that statement, Allah subhana wa tada still says, Yeah, you need my service. we disobey Allah but Allah subhanho wa Taala is not willing to accept any distance between his creation and himself. Hence, he continues to call us yeah, by the body, my servants my service in this hadith.

00:07:46--> 00:08:21

From one element, there is Jamal and the other element there is Jenna Jamal, meaning the love and beauty of Allah subhanho wa Taala. How is that Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He, he pleased to us. He's calling us again and again, call on me asked for me. I'm the one who can give to you. I'm the one who can give to you. You have sins to forgive. I love forgiving sins, come and ask me for forgiveness. I'll forgive you. Kind of like a mother who repeatedly calls on her child, that if you need any help, why don't you go to others come and ask me, I'll help you. The father who says to his son, if you need any help forget other people come and ask me. I'll help you. There's Gemma and

00:08:21--> 00:08:40

there's love there. And on the other hand, you have the gela the if you want to say the independence of a love of the the anger of all the might have a loss of planet one without and what's that? Might? Where do you find it? Allah subhanahu wa tada very openly says, Don't misunderstand my love for my weakness.

00:08:42--> 00:09:21

Just because I'm showing my love, doesn't mean I'm weak. The truth is that if all of you became pious, it doesn't affect me in any way. If all of you were to ask me and if I were to give everyone it doesn't affect me in any way. me giving to you is not about me at all. It's purely about you. This conversation is Heidi let's see, is not about Allah subhanho wa Taala this conversation is about us. Allah subhanho wa Taala is calling out to us and saying my servant I wish to give to you. The question is do you want to take on? So now continuing with that note with that mindset, we read the words of the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that Allah subhanho wa

00:09:21--> 00:09:35

Taala says, Yeah, anybody could look involved in a lamb and had a to festa dooney. Deacon, all my servants, each and every one of you as a stray except for the one who I have guided. So seek guidance from me I will guide you.

00:09:36--> 00:09:48

In this statement, we come across the word hedaya. We are misguided until Allah subhanho wa Taala guides us now someone can question I thought it was opposite.

00:09:50--> 00:09:54

We read in the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said kulu mo eluding you

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

that the natural disposition of every human being is Islam for a while.

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

Hold with me. Oh, Universidad II Oh, you might usami he and then his environment, his mentors, his parents may take that person outside of Islam. So the default position of a person is Udaya his guidance. So how can a person be misguided them?

00:10:15--> 00:10:29

But Allah subhanho wa Taala is happy the footsy is saying the opposite. Each and every one of you is misguided except for the one who I have guided. So I'll explain this up ahead. But just to briefly touch on it, there are two levels of hedaya.

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

There are two levels of hidayah

00:10:34--> 00:11:15

and ecological humble he addresses this, he says for the first one is he diaton Mooji, Mellotron, and the second is what he calls hidayatullah for solitude. hidayatullah machpelah is the initial guidance that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives to every person where he or he that he or he directed Islam, and that is the guidance of Islam. That level of guidance is given to every individual when they enter into this world. We as Muslims believe every person is born in Islam. So no one can say that I was born outside Islam and wasn't given given an opportunity to become a Muslim. Rather, our belief is every person is born in Islam. They choose to leave Islam and then inshallah Allah will

00:11:15--> 00:11:52

guide them back. So the first is what given honorable humbly calls hidayatullah Majumdar letter. Well here, Al hidayatullah Islam, well imagine what he has to not only movement, the first level of hidayah is a brief version of guidance, which one is that which is brief, and this is given to every person in the sense that they are born as a believer. Then he says, What hidayatullah Mufasa and then there is this detailed, more intricate version of hedaya and what is this? Well here hidayatullah illa, Marty Fertitta vasilia design Emmanuel Islam, IANA de la liga

00:11:54--> 00:12:39

de la Koo Minh Leyland, manoharan, when he had amatola horiba, who Ayako feeco lira cotton insalata him in a Serato Stocki. He says a second level of hedaya is that is that guidance, which helps helps a person recognize the details of your faith, the details of your religion, and that level of Udaya will help you act upon those details of your religion and the details of your faith. And these details are so important. They're as important as the ship itself, the the details within that ship, there's a ship and then there's what's inside the ship. What's inside the ship actually matters as much as the framework of the ship. Without the sail without the without the wheel. That ship really

00:12:39--> 00:12:44

isn't functional. It isn't really much. So what's inside the functioning moving pieces are as important.

00:12:45--> 00:12:54

You have a 30 minute lane and you are actually dependent on these details in the day and night, every day and every night.

00:12:55--> 00:13:21

And this is why Allah subhanahu wa tada commands us to ask this level of guidance from a law and every record of our prayer when we read in a suit autumns 13. Oh a lord guide us, Dena. Allah guide us a serratos steam to the straight path with all of its detail with all the finesse and all the things we need to know your Allah inspire our hearts with everything we need to know if you know give us that level of your diet.

00:13:24--> 00:13:34

Now, what is the diet what is guidance in mamarazzi? when defining the word hedaya, he says Allah hedaya to dalada to beautiful

00:13:35--> 00:13:39

hedaya means to guide someone with love and kindness

00:13:41--> 00:13:48

without forcing them. This is what it means to guide someone to show someone the pathway but with kindness with softness.

00:13:50--> 00:14:27

imams a judge when explaining the word Alhaji which is one of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala he says hola de Hidalgo who llamada de lluvia de Alhaji is Allah guide and this means he is the one who guides his creation, that his creation is able to know Him and is able to understand Him as their rub as their nerd as their nurture or whether they had a brother who illustrata him stop him and he is the one who guides hearts and guides people to the straight path. He writes this in as a smart aleck smile.

00:14:29--> 00:14:49

He might have been Salaam while doing the seed of the word hedaya because it repeats itself Have you had a hard Alia these three words had you if you wish to say they repeat themselves in the foot on very regularly. So he discusses how many different meanings this single word comes into.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

How many different meanings is his word come in? When when mentioned in the Quran? He says love and how do you determine who meaning the word

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

Ha Dalia these three letters and all the different derivatives that will then come from this word. They present themselves in the Quran in over 17 different meanings.

00:15:12--> 00:15:25

They come in how many different meanings, over 17 different meanings, meaning the scope of Hidayat is very broad. It's not limited to one thing or restricted to one thing. It's a very broad word and there's so much that it encompasses

00:15:27--> 00:15:48

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says in one narration, he that all the love will be opted in height on his stamina, who, when Allah subhanho wa Taala wills good of a person with a luggage hedaya to a person. Allah uses that person stamina for PETA, gave a stamina we are suitable. Allah What do you mean Allah utilizes that person

00:15:49--> 00:16:30

for the purpose of the long run, he will set him set you up for holy armor inside the covenant note, Allah subhanahu wa tada will inspire him for a beautiful, sincere good deed before he dies, before she dies. There will be that one thing they'll do in their life that Allah has inspired them and then inspiration can only come from Allah. That's why I wish I would say that every day of your life Let there be one good deed you do. That is only a secret between you and Allah, no one else knows. It could be you driving your car when you're on the highway and no one is next to you and all you're doing in your cars and stuff for the law stuff, the law stuff the law. Just don't tell anyone. Let

00:16:30--> 00:17:02

that be the secret between you and your Lord. Maybe Allah subhanho wa Taala is guiding you through that through that, Stefan. That's why someone asked how celibacy How do I know if my good deeds are accepted. He said the best way to know whether your good deeds are accepted is to see whether Allah gives you the tofield to do that deed again or not. If Allah gives you that, that they'll feel to do that good deed again, it's very probable that Allah subhanho wa Taala loved it and liked it very dearly, the last time we did it. Hence Allah subhanho wa Taala gave you the chance to do it again.

00:17:04--> 00:17:47

Be sincere. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he constantly made this law, a law Homer in the local houda what to call one artha. Well, Athena, beautiful wa always made this law, even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was at the pinnacle of his diet, but teaching his ummah and wanting more guidance from Allah, more guidance from Allah along with local Buddha guidance. When we think of guidance, our mind immediately jumps to Islam in the absence of Islam. When we think of guidance, what is our mind pop to our mind jumps to good deeds and bad deeds? But he is so broad. When you have confusion in your life, you're not sure whether you should buy this house or not buy

00:17:47--> 00:18:25

the house. When you say Allahumma in local Huda, Oh Allah I asked you for guidance. What does that mean? You're asking a lie Allah give me guidance to the right path in this decision. Should I marry or not? Should I buy this car or not? Think of the diet Allah subhanho wa Taala guidance is not restricted only to your spiritual affairs. It's actually on and it's to everything. You're going to college and you're taking a class in philosophy, the greatest hidayah you need, by the way is intellectual hedaya FYI, because that trumps everything, you know, that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a separate to offer that actually, our missionaries to tell us that when you're

00:18:25--> 00:18:45

setting in, as a student of knowledge, no matter what you're studying, there's one law you must read at the beginning of every beginning and end of every class. Whether you go to high school, middle school, college anywhere you go, because you have to remember the person is teaching you whatever they're teaching you they'll teach it with an agenda they have attached to that information.

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

One subject depending on the agenda the person has what will they do

00:18:52--> 00:19:39

the teacher accordingly that's why there's one law you must always make to Allah as a student of knowledge. What is that? Allahumma I didn't know haka. haka. What is open active Allah. O Allah, allow us to see the truth as the truth. And let us follow it. Yeah, Allah Don't let us create false allegiances to people to ideas. Don't let us become slaves of human philosophy. Allow him I didn't have a haka or Allah allow us to see the truth for truth. You know, and in particular, in the times we live in, where progressive liberalism is at its peak. It's so easy to accept anything that people are saying, because it's a common notion. Many of our our circles are friends and those we sit with

00:19:39--> 00:20:00

those we spend time with our with classify themselves as progressives rather than conservatives. And conservatism has its own problem. And liberalism has its own problem. By the way. Our job as Muslims is to remain in the middle. Our allegiance and our loyalty. If you wish to say our VEDA is to align as a source of law. That's where our allegiance actually is.

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

Allahumma haka haka. Oh a lot. Don't make me a blind follower. That just because someone is saying something or just because someone is more eloquent in presenting their idea I become a blind follower of that. What is ultimate diva Allah and let me follow the truth when I see it. Well I didn't know about Tila Martina, Oh ALLAH and allow me to see allow us to see false hood as false it was open next Inaba. You know there are some people,

00:20:29--> 00:20:36

you can present a very intricate argument in front of them. And as soon as they hear it, what do they say? It's nonsense.

00:20:37--> 00:21:18

That same argument when presented to us, we're so intrigued by it. Wow, what a beautiful argument. You present that same argument to another person. What do they say immediately? The argument is, it's nonsense. This is, as we've said, our language is boplaas it's meaningless. It doesn't have any. It doesn't have any foundation to stand on. This is hedaya that Allah subhanho wa Taala inspires a person's heart where they aren't interested in nonsense. They know because Allah subhanaw taala has guided their hearts. Along with me as a local Buddha. The Prophet constantly made this law. What took our one hour for dinner Oh Allah I asked you for guidance for Heidi taqwa

00:21:18--> 00:21:24

consciousness. When artha chastity Rosina and self sufficiency. Don't make me dependent on anyone.

00:21:26--> 00:21:36

Always ask a law for hidayah because the truth is that the moment Allah subhanho wa Taala pulls back hidayah from us we are lost.

00:21:37--> 00:21:51

Without the guidance of a law we have nowhere to go. The truth is that whatever emotion we have today, whatever little love for Allah we have today, whatever little Eva we are inspired to do today is solely and only because Allah subhanaw taala has given us

00:21:53--> 00:21:59

but if that hidayah wasn't there, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, may Allah who for one

00:22:00--> 00:22:33

minute drill forlenza Gita who Olia Min dooney when I showed him Yama, Yama to Allah will do him on yellowbook Mobile, Suma. But while humann Johanna Kula Mahabharata namsa era, meaning the simple translation to the part that I'm that I want to bring to your attention is that without a lot of guidance, there is no one to help you. You can give a person you can present to a person 101 arguments about the existence of a law. And the truth is those arguments are absolutely logical, that person has no response at all. But if he dies, and there will this person except

00:22:35--> 00:22:42

and just today earlier, we were reading maybe yesterday it was we were reading in Sahih Muslim, the chapter on the death of

00:22:44--> 00:23:17

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam every verse of Revelation he must have received, I have no doubt he must have conveyed it to a platonic yes or no. I will thought it was always here in all ears to the Prophet. He always wanted to hear everything he was a prophet, uncle. He was like a father to the Prophet always listening. Every Iota prophet must have been revealed until that point, he must have delivered a troubled thought it every reason allotted saw the sacrifice, he saw the miracles. He knew how trustworthy and truthful his nephew was. But at the end of it when he's lying on his deathbed, the prophet said aloud, he was seldom heard he rushed to meet him, and he held his

00:23:17--> 00:23:24

hand and said to him, yummy. Oh, my uncle, just say the statement and I will testify on your behalf on the day of judgment to say once

00:23:25--> 00:24:03

and what is the audit himself safe? He says, The truth is had I not worried had I not been fearful of what these people will say Abuja had and others are sitting there had that had not been worried that they would say that he said, these statements out of fear of death, had I not been worried about what they would say about me, I would actually even say it, however, I die on the religion of optimal to live with those statements. He passed away. Have you visited a Muslim? And it teaches you also the impact that bad peers and friends can have in your life? Where Eamon is right there, and imagine how much the Prophet must have cried that someone so close to him left this role without

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

Hidayat.

00:24:05--> 00:24:12

And the Prophet of Allah actually said, I will ask Allah for forgiveness on your behalf. And Allah subhanahu wa tada revealed an ayah

00:24:14--> 00:24:15

makanan abbyy

00:24:18--> 00:24:59

whatever your stuffs Rudy Machina, hello, Carla Ollie kotoba that it is not permissible for a believer and for a profit and those who believe that they seek forgiveness on behalf of those who have died in the state of Schick even if they are close relatives of yours. And the process that I have put on was revealed in Nicoletta de mana but that guidance is not in your hands on messenger sallallahu wasallam you can initiate the path to guidance as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, that messenger of Allah Your job is to guide people. Your job is to be the had will equally common had the guide, you can initiate the journey of guidance

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

But the truth is ultimate guidance only comes from Allah subhanho wa Tada. That's why every time we read our setup, we make this law if you do not study in a certain way, but before we say in a certain setting, we prepare the stage for this grandma al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen Nana Rahim, Maliki omit the EOC and Abuja canister. And after these four verses, then we say what is then a Serato stuffing Serato Ludhiana. naantali him later moldoveanu human of Bondi amin

00:25:37--> 00:25:55

then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues on from Allah subhanho wa Taala says caloocan urine illa manaton to foster rimoni income each and every one of you is hungry except for the one who I feed. So ask me for food and I will give it to you.

00:25:57--> 00:26:43

It is from Allah subhanho wa Taala That's the truth. There is no one that can give it is other than Allah subhana wa tada Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Rasul Allah subhanho wa Taala has taken the responsibility of taking care and nourishing and providing for his creation. Well mom and button fill out of the Illa Allah He there is for her why Allah mama Takara mama soda movie, our responsibility is to fulfill our job as a sub as a means to go and work. Go and get an education step out of our house and move our hands and feet a little bit and do something. But ultimately we have to always remember that we are dependent on Allah subhanahu wa Tada. This is what this hadith

00:26:43--> 00:26:59

is actually teaching us. The first half of it is reminding us that we are dependent on Allah. The second half of it, the second half of it is reminding us that allies independent if I were to summarize this whole Hadith into one I have the Quran under muhfucka with Allahu Allahu when

00:27:00--> 00:27:37

you are in need of Allah, Allah doesn't need you. The truth is that we can go and work but it doesn't mean that we will be provided for this comes from Allah subhanho wa Tada. You have to believe this has to be your Eman your data, that the money I bring home is not a result of my efforts. If you keep reminding yourself of this, that it is a law, the one who gave me this money. It is a law, the one who gave me this job without Allah subhanho wa Taala it was impossible for me to gain this knowledge, get the certificate, get this job, be in the position that I'm in right now. Who am I to own a house and own a car. I'm a nobody. This is all the father of Allah subhanho wa

00:27:37--> 00:27:41

Taala if you view it that way, you'll be thankful to Allah.

00:27:43--> 00:28:06

And when you're thankful to Allah, Allah will give you more. However, when you start actually being good to yourself, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is no longer interested in you, while in Khartoum, and when you become ungrateful, in nada vitosha de de la says the man punishment is great, it's great. So always be thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada. And remind yourself, there is no doubt that we are all constantly worried about our risk.

00:28:08--> 00:28:45

Because we have responsibilities. Each of us that works doesn't only work for ourselves, we work for other people, some of us have a responsibility to send money back home to our relatives who may be sick or need a surgery or they have their needs. Some of us are young, and we have a responsibility to provide rock for our parents. Some of us are married and we have a responsibility to provide for our spouse and our children. Some are not married yet yet wish to get married. So people work and with an intention of not only taking care of their own needs, but because there are multiple people. And if you're one of those people who actually doesn't care about others and is only worried about

00:28:45--> 00:28:53

yourself, you have a problem. I just want to tell you, people took care of you. The moment Allah gives you you should also do what

00:28:54--> 00:29:12

take care of other people. This is a cycle of life. And don't say other people don't need me. It's not true. They don't need you. They need a lot. That's true. Actually. They don't need you. Nobody needs you. But if Allah subhanho wa Taala uses you as a sub as a means to go and deliver that to someone what an honor for you.

00:29:14--> 00:29:18

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his forefathers were known as being the most generous of

00:29:19--> 00:29:31

you know how they earned this title. Because they were like the Hydra ministry. You know, today we have 100 ministry. They were the highest Ministry of that time. The prophets that Allahu Allah He was sitting on his grandfather's there was a person by the name of Hashem.

00:29:33--> 00:29:39

Have you guys heard of the name before? Hashem? You know why he was called Hashem? What does Hashem I mean?

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

To break bread into pieces and make 30 out of it 30 that this is a meal, it was a very pristine meal amongst the atoms. They would take fat, put it in there, put some meat in there, a lot of meat actually. And they would put bread in there and mix it all together and serve it as one dish. Hashem wonderful jobs.

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

We'll come into multimedia will come from across the world. He would take care of their food for multiple meals every day while they were in the holy cities while they were in multiple countries, and what food would he give them? He would give them what? Three, the most pristine, the great food like that which was beloved people, he would give them every meal, giving them 30. And he was so persistent, so persistent in doing this feeding people taking care of him, taking care of people that ultimately he became known as Hashem. There's one narration, Allah subhanahu wa tada said, Oh, my servant, I was hungry, you didn't feed me. So then the surface is Yala. How can I feed you said

00:30:41--> 00:30:57

possible? So what is the loss of Platinum without a say? so on so servant of mine was hungry? How do you gone to him you would have found me there. Take care of other people. Some years back, I went to India, and I went to Hyderabad. When I went there.

00:30:58--> 00:31:43

I saw in every house, at least most of the houses that I went to, they had this tablecloth that everyone would eat on. And out of a tablecloth. There was some beautiful poetry written there. It said on there. Sugar kodaka Dr. Ahmed m Mancha. This cup Nakata ha ha Tara, the stock Hunter, it said on the tablecloth where people eat on there it said, Be thankful to Allah at the arrival of the guests. Every time a guest shows up to your house. Don't run away from the door. Open the door with the big smile sugar for dakka dakka Ahmed ma Monica is up Nakata. Hi, he's not eating your list. He's not eating from your pantry, whose food is he eating? He's eating his own food, a lot destined

00:31:43--> 00:32:03

that food always to be for him. The only difference is that the stuff that he's eating it on your table, if he were not to come or if she were not to come to your house, Allah wouldn't have given you that risk in the first place. That's why my mother in law she's always make this law for me. She's to say, oh Hussein, May Allah give the rest of the rod your hands to them.

00:32:05--> 00:32:20

That bla with that she would give us very powerful, because it reminded me what that is was never mine. It was actually always there. It's just that Allah subhanho wa Taala made me that will see that to give it to them made me the sum up to give it to them, and who walks away with the reward.

00:32:21--> 00:33:01

I walk away with a reward. What a small thing to do. Allah gave me a mana I just have to give it to someone and Allah is giving me the reward as if I fed them. The truth is I didn't feed anyone. But unfortunately, Allah gives us the Amana to give to other people. And then we do IANA in that manner. We betray that trust. And we we serve it and say it's mine, I'm not going to give it to anyone. This is a very bad mentality. And unfortunately, our generation is consumed by it. We are materialistic society. We're only worried about ourselves. We have no limits when it comes to our hunger for materialistic possessions. We always want the next thing we're no longer content with our houses,

00:33:01--> 00:33:17

with our cars with our possessions. So every time we earn money, what do we think I have to invest it again, for the next best thing, and we keep investing in this dunya until the point comes where we've made no investment for the author. And that's basically the summary of this Howdy.

00:33:19--> 00:33:22

What are some things that a person can do to increase their risk?

00:33:24--> 00:33:43

The truth is, there are many things. There are so many things that scholars have actually published a list of a list of things that a person can do to increase the risk in the form of books, but I'll just share with you four or five things that can be done. The first thing is constantly engaged in is to fire

00:33:44--> 00:33:49

Allah subhana wa tada says sudo for all to stop fedorova come in who can

00:33:50--> 00:33:53

you see this summer la mirada?

00:33:54--> 00:34:10

Malinois bunny bonnin wage Allah congenital wage Allah caminhada keep your tongue busy with this stuff, a lot of stuff and a lot of stuff for the law. What is this default I'll talk about this up ahead we have today's class there's a part dedicated to understanding what is default actually is

00:34:11--> 00:34:55

and also how to what Allah says to the new verses 10 to 12. And ask your Lord for forgiveness for people to start Fedora back home. No Holly Sam said ask your Lord for forgiveness in the whole kind of a photo indeed he is the forgiver you see the Somali Komodo he will say no rain from the sky upon you in continuing showers. When you do the combat and while in woven in. And as a result of your stuff it will also increase you in wealth in children wage income generating wage and horror and also as a result of your stepfather Allah will provide you gardens and provide for you reverse to allow open the doors upon you. If you continue to ask Allah subhana wa tada for forgiveness. The

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

second thing whatever little Allah has given you be thankful to Allah subhana wa

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Donna, the principle is that in shocker to

00:35:04--> 00:35:06

be thankful, Allah will give you more.

00:35:08--> 00:35:15

There is nothing more beautiful in this world than a person who has a heart. That's contempt.

00:35:17--> 00:35:36

Nothing more beautiful in the world. Because a greedy person is always a beggar. They keep asking more and more from the dunya. And no matter how much you give that person kind of like a heroin addict, no matter how much money they have, what do they do by the end of the week? They burn right through it, because they have this greed that outlives their reality.

00:35:37--> 00:35:52

Literally learned to live a life of contentment. Be happy with what you have. Someone came to me this week and said shift I'm looking to get married. What should I look for in a spouse? I said, the first thing you need to look for in a spouse is look for someone who can be your companion that has contentment.

00:35:53--> 00:36:18

Otherwise, they're going to demand more from you more from you and more from you. And you'll spend that your life feeding those desires. What are you going to spend your life for Allah subhanho wa Taala you have contentment. Your spouse will say to you, that's enough. We don't need more than you. We don't need another house. We don't need another car. We're happy. We're good rarely are. Now it's our responsibility to utilize what Allah has given us that's extra for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:36:19--> 00:36:36

I mean, think about the importance of having a spouse that's content. I'll share with you one example. From what is considered to be the setup, it actually predates the purpose of a lot of setup that's a it's considered to be zero because ultimately, it's attached to the discussion of Sita. It's kind of like a pre lewd introduction to the setup.

00:36:37--> 00:36:41

From amongst the grandfathers of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam there was a prophet

00:36:43--> 00:36:45

whose name was say, smiley, Salah.

00:36:47--> 00:36:51

He grew up in Mocambo karma and married into the Judean tribe.

00:36:53--> 00:36:58

His father, Ibrahim Ali salam, one day came to visit him. And his maid Ali Salam wasn't home.

00:36:59--> 00:37:02

Rahim Ali Salam was greeted at the door by a smile on a cinema his wife.

00:37:03--> 00:37:32

This lady had no idea who this Baba was who this guy was. This person asked him Is this my ID here? She said no spiders not here. He said, Well, how's married life? How are things going? She said to me, Sam, that you know what? Times are hard. You know, it's not good. Actually. We're very poor. We didn't have enough food. The bed is uncomfortable enough. I've been telling you know what memory foam he keeps bringing back the springboard. She started complaining.

00:37:33--> 00:37:47

Even on Monday. So now after he heard all of this, he said to his wife, he said to explain to my wife that, you know, when your husband comes home, tell him an old man came and gave setup. And then tell them I said to him, he should consider changing his doorstep

00:37:48--> 00:38:08

or the frame to his door. It's mine it Sam came home. She told him that, you know, this old man came, he said would describe this old man. She said well, he had this nice, beautiful white beard. And as we learned from narrations, the first person to have a full blown white beard was given to him on a set up. He saw the white hair and said yo Ma, what's this? And what are the law say?

00:38:09--> 00:38:25

This is what this is. This is a lot of honoring. You might not know exactly who that person was. He said, What did he say? He didn't give any message for me. He said you should consider changing your doorstep. It's made. It's made it sounds it does not come off as the last and are

00:38:27--> 00:38:37

divorced to you. Now someone can say that's a harsh step, yes or no. I mean, his father made the suggestion he divorced his wife. But the answer to this is very simple. Actually.

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

It's fine. Ali Salaam knew that Ibrahim alayhis salam was a prophet of Allah. And there are two points. Firstly, he was a very wise person, he would never make a suggestion unless that suggestion was imperative for his life in his life. Secondly, it's very possible that Ibrahim Ali Salaam must have received ye from Allah subhanho wa Taala that this person wasn't appropriate to be one who carries the lineage of the prophets of the longlining.

00:39:03--> 00:39:38

Another thing is Ibrahim ali ali Salaam, according to the historians, it was after that point he was granted to Booyah, anybody Molly's Saddam was preparing his son for number one. And if he had a wife who was greedy for this world, the prophet can be can be can be functional and his responsibility. That's what Allah said to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, when his wives asked for an increment in expenses, that say to them, either be patient, or you can leave the marriage, you have to choose one of the two that either you can just talk about it and remain with me. You'll have to remain patient with the challenges that follow along with being the life of a prophet or fatale

00:39:38--> 00:39:47

mactier couldn't know what was seven goodness ramita I'll give you the money you want but that's the end of this marriage. We're including when continue to didn't allow rasuna who

00:39:48--> 00:39:51

signed the law didn't send it cinnamon conocer Lima.

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

Then the second time you Rahim Ali saddam came, he visited again. It's mine is almost married this time yet another wife

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

It's finally Mrs. Lamb came in smile was at home he asked Where's smile? He's gone out. How are things in the house? By the way, spine alley slam didn't get a pay upgrade in any way was the same job, same money coming home. Same broke guy. molars are always broke. So he said to him What's going on?

00:40:20--> 00:40:21

So she said that,

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

okay.

00:40:24--> 00:40:43

You know things are great. We have food. We have a nice house, we have a roof over our head. What more can I ask from Allah subhanho wa Taala when he brought him on a psalm saw his her contentment. What did he say to him? He says, tell when your husband comes home. Tell him that I came and give him some. But also tell him that his doorframe looks so beautiful. Now.

00:40:44--> 00:40:56

This is right. This is how it's supposed to look. This is how your doorstep supposed to look. And it's my analysis, understood immediately that his father was praising his wife, Ibrahim alayhis. Salam chose his daughter in law base of what characteristic

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

her contentment

00:41:00--> 00:41:08

person who has contentment is the wealthiest person. So be number two, show sugar to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number three.

00:41:10--> 00:41:48

How do you show sugar to a lack of setup? Give a lot of setup. I know it sounds counterintuitive. It doesn't make sense. Because we're talking about how to increase your wealth and what am I telling you? Give it away? Does that make any sense? Giving your wealth away is going to give you back maybe logically doesn't agree with you? Maybe logically It doesn't make sense. But this is a matter of your email. What is the loss of honohan without se munden levy you could have the La casilla for your life a hula hoop of often kathira you give a little to Allah Allah will give you many more folds in return. Now you question How does that logic make any sense? So Allah responds immediately.

00:41:49--> 00:42:01

Right after that, well Allahu you have to be the way upset. Allah is the one who gives an Allah is the one who holds back. So don't ask Allah what doesn't what doesn't make sense. Allah will give to you. If you trust Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:42:03--> 00:42:04

The third thing

00:42:05--> 00:42:10

is while you're earning your risk, don't violate any commendable law.

00:42:11--> 00:42:35

In your jobs, be pure. Be content, have Taqwa of Allah. When you're in the market and you're buying and selling, it's very easy to forget allies watching. And your heart may also be inclined towards cheating, ripping someone off for an extra dollar or two, but don't cheat. Remember this, the person in front of you may look like is walking away with more money because they're cheating.

00:42:36--> 00:42:45

And you may walk home with less money because you're being honest. But since when did $1 amount determine whether a person had bought a car not

00:42:47--> 00:42:57

$1 amount doesn't determine anything. Baraka is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. There are people in the world who have little money, but they're wealthy. There are people in the world who are very wealthy, but until today,

00:42:58--> 00:43:11

they're still poor, they don't have anything. You have to trust Allah subhanho wa Taala, Romania, La Jolla Jalla who Maharajah wire Zhu min highflyer. If Allah doesn't get from here, Allah will give from

00:43:13--> 00:43:44

another place but Allah will give to you. And I can share a few stories of my own life in this where I never thought, you know, things were gonna pan out, but I, you know, stood firm and a lot took care of it. And it's not about me, I actually what I'm going to ask each of you to do is go back to your parents, go back to the elders of your community in your family and ask them tell the stories of how you trusted a lot and a lot came through financially. And they're gonna have some really awesome stories to tell you that you know what I didn't think I was going to be able to pull through but ultimately what happened.

00:43:46--> 00:43:51

There's a lot of value in his service. If you don't abandon your friend, will your friend abandon you?

00:43:53--> 00:44:12

If a friend won't abandon a friend, how can Allah abandoned his servants? This is Mahal. This is impossible. Allah subhanaw taala would never do such as a daddy with his creation. Allies HAC, Allah subhana wa tada is the closest friend that any person can have. You asked him, Allah your Lord will give to you. And the last thing,

00:44:13--> 00:44:16

Bill build bond Be mindful of your relationships.

00:44:17--> 00:44:41

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, as we learn in hottie, whoever loves that he be granted more wealth than treat and he'll be granted more wealth and that his life is prolonged than he should be kind to his relatives. And in one narration, he should be kind to his parents. In one narration that says you should be kind to his parents. And another narration that says you should be kind to

00:44:42--> 00:44:47

your relatives. There are many things that unfortunately also prevent

00:44:48--> 00:44:58

risk. That stop that sustenance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. There are I mean, I won't go through all of them, but I'll just list a few. One of them is Xena

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

engage

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

in any form of Xena, it stops Baraka in your wealth. Your risk will become restricted. There's only been ever thought about the long one he narrates it my foreign as an uncle Ronnie also narrated from a bus in his alosa

00:45:16--> 00:45:22

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in Zinner, there are 16, six punishments in the

00:45:23--> 00:45:30

fourth and fifth dunya within Africa. Three of those punishments will be seen in this world, and three of them in the

00:45:31--> 00:45:37

AMA latifi dunya. As for the three that you will experience in this world, the first thing

00:45:38--> 00:45:53

it will take away, Baha watch, he will watch, the heart will watch by heart means and RB, the beauty of the face when a person comes into the room from their face, the beauty of their face is lost, while you defend.

00:45:55--> 00:46:25

That person will also experience poverty, while kusudama and the Baraka in their life, their life will decrease. While I'm allottee philosopher as for those in the afternoon, for you to suffer, suffered, it will bring the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala will soon it will also bring a bad reckoning in front of Allah, how are you going to answer Allah subhana wa Tada. And the third thing that pops up along with it was Adam says, Allah jahannam and also Allah subhanaw taala will punish that person in the hereafter.

00:46:26--> 00:46:36

Similarly, not giving Zakat when a person doesn't give zakat. You think you're increasing your money by not giving it But the truth is, you're decreasing it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:46:37--> 00:46:44

when a person when a group of people stop giving there's a cop, Allah subhanahu wa tada will test them with droughts.

00:46:45--> 00:46:52

Illa Allah Houma, la hoopseen Allah will test them with their drought with droughts. Similarly, there's a hadith

00:46:54--> 00:47:09

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said regarding the river, that when a group of people engage in interest based interactions, you will see droughts come upon them, meaning Allah will test them as this will be a punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there are other

00:47:10--> 00:47:12

lists of things that the scholars have listed.

00:47:15--> 00:47:19

that prevent risk from opening itself to people.

00:47:20--> 00:47:23

Regarding this list, I want to share one narration from

00:47:24--> 00:48:04

Allahu Allah that he narrates, from, say the hoodie. He says that Allah said Allahu alayhi wa sallam that the yummy one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and lots and lots of messages in that video. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day entered into the machine for either we don't really meet and saw your father to whom Allah there was a person sitting there whose name was whoo mom. Father, yeah, yeah, about a woman Molly araca jellison Phil Majidi field lady walk to Sala oh mama, why is it that I see you sitting here in the machine in a time outside that prayer time has been the machine was empty. He was just sitting in the corner, very sad. He was consumed by

00:48:04--> 00:48:19

something obviously. So he says, Who moon Lizzie Matheny, a messenger of Allah I am consumed by concerns and worries. I'm experiencing what some may call depression who moon who moon very similar.

00:48:21--> 00:48:35

And he says who moon Lizzie Matheny? What do you know, Yasser Allah. And the reason why I'm in so much depression, I have such a concern is why do you I owe a lot of people money. And everyone's asking for their money and I don't have the money to give to them.

00:48:37--> 00:48:56

For color apart sort of autism set up for that wildly MOCA Kalman filter who have a low humbucker wakaba Anca Dana shanachie to something if you say Allah will remove your concerns, and Allah will also pay off your debt. How many of you have debts here you don't have to raise your hand but just think about it. How many of you have deaths?

00:48:57--> 00:49:11

Maybe this law will be beneficial for you? What is it law of the parks that a lot of time the possum said call of either a spotter either I'm saying when you enter into the morning and when you enter into the evening every morning and evening read this law

00:49:13--> 00:49:16

Allahumma inni rulu becoming an HMI while

00:49:18--> 00:49:19

becoming an adze will

00:49:21--> 00:49:24

be communal Germany will bow

00:49:25--> 00:49:28

to becoming hollybeth attain nakahara region.

00:49:30--> 00:49:33

A lot of them in the room the bigger middle HMI will

00:49:35--> 00:49:37

be coming and it will

00:49:39--> 00:49:40

be coming in Germany will

00:49:42--> 00:49:43

be coming

00:49:44--> 00:49:45

in Pokhara region.

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

So I'll translate it along with me I will be committed. Oh Allah, I seek refuge in You from home. What does that mean? being overwhelmed with concerns? What doesn't What does that mean? from sorrow

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

When becoming an rz, I asked, I seek protection from being

00:50:05--> 00:50:16

enabled. I just as a state where a person isn't able to do anything anymore where you've lost all the options, you run up, you run out of options now you don't have anything to do with custom and from being lazy.

00:50:17--> 00:50:20

to becoming a German German means

00:50:21--> 00:50:34

being a coward. While and from being stingy, miserly. Well I really becoming a Dane and I seek protection from debt that's grounds me, debt that overcomes me.

00:50:36--> 00:50:53

And that people start to, you know, hold me accountable and oppressed me because if you haven't paid their debts back, they're going to come in demand from you. Other faculty that he says, I made a habit of reading this every morning and evening. For I have a law without a HMI you have Amoeba TV.

00:50:55--> 00:51:27

And very soon Allah upon without our took away, my husband, my overwhelming concerns and my depression, and Allah subhanahu wa tada also paid off my debt. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Allahu Akbar, meaning that this came, I paid that person off, moving forward, the process of allowing while he was sitting says to us that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, everybody kulu Kumar in 11, COSATU, festac, Sunni axiocam all my servants each and every one of you is unclothed

00:51:29--> 00:51:33

is naked. So seek as clothing from me and I should close you.

00:51:36--> 00:51:47

I love a TV Rahmatullahi la he raises a question that why is a lot of talking about food and clothing. buying the last statement that a lot of talk about food in this statement a lot talk about clothing.

00:51:51--> 00:52:07

He says in cold thermal model is Stephanie Foley Illa mana Tonto waka Soto is laser domina nassima human minima. Because the truth is everyone has clothing. Let's be real, yes or no. And hamdullah everyone has food.

00:52:09--> 00:52:19

I mean, we all have food, we all have clothing. So I'm not bringing these two things in this hoodie. Why are these two things being mentioned? So he answers himself? He says I answered myself.

00:52:20--> 00:52:31

It was called kieswetter llama Karna mob be rainy and enough damn well justified risk, while the Houma Wada mahama

00:52:32--> 00:53:07

what he says the reason is because it's to make us think that the most obvious and basic things in life food and clothing that we already have, the truth is that those are also gifted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the things that are greater than that, like a house, like having a membership at a gym, or having or playing basketball with your friends, or going on holidays. These are all luxuries that are given from Allah Spano without it and we should appreciate and thank Allah subhana wa tada for those luxuries. Now when we think of being unclothed

00:53:09--> 00:53:15

I want to take our mind away from physical nakedness, to spiritual nakedness.

00:53:16--> 00:53:27

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would do this a lot. When he would interact with something on a physical level, he would immediately take his mind to something that was spiritual. That's why the scholars recommend that law.

00:53:28--> 00:54:08

They say the purpose of the law while he was sitting when he would eat something sweet, he's eating something sweet here. Having a doughnut having some date, you know, something sweet here. And what do I as a profit making? Allahu Allah with Amina? Oh, Allah bless me with the sweetness of Emma. He's interacting in engaging with a physical, but his mind is focused on the spiritual. So here as well. We all have clothes on our bodies. But do are we really spiritually clothed or unclothed? Because if you want to know what spiritual clothing looks like, Allah subhanho wa Taala calls it in the Quran. taqwa of Allah,

00:54:09--> 00:54:11

Allah refers to real clothing as

00:54:13--> 00:54:52

consciousness of Allah, a person what is stuck what what is Libous do what's the function of a garment. The function of a garment is that it covers your private area. It covers your flaws in your body. It covers any wound you have any bruise you have your clothing covers for you. The part of you that actually is distasteful that doesn't look good. Had it been done close. A lot, a lot covers it a lot allows you to cover it. We covered it with holding and we beautify yourself with it. Right? That's why when when we wear garments, we say what the gentlemen will be heafy hayati de la isla de casa de marwadi bialetti Adobe heafy hayati, all praises to Allah who gave me a garment that I can

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

wear that will help me cover my private area and I can beautify myself in the eyes of people clothing beautifies you so spiritually as well.

00:55:00--> 00:55:12

Remember that sins unclothed you? This is what we learn from the story of other manisa other Molly's Sarah made a mistake. He ate what Allah told him not to. Immediately What happened to him?

00:55:14--> 00:55:48

He became unclothed until that point, the there was a barrier that covered their their private area. Now what was that barrier? The scholars they discussed what was it? Was it some clothing, they say it wasn't clothing, it was something else. Maybe it was a nude maybe it was some sort of a level up an extreme level of high and modest modesty that they didn't even notice to look at each other's private areas, like I said, of the Alona on the profit of the loss in total, that every person will be resurrected on the day of jasmine. unclothed, she sent a messenger of Allah. Isn't that inappropriate? One of the Pops that a lot of them say

00:55:50--> 00:55:54

like people will have greater things to worry about that day, then to go around looking at each other.

00:55:56--> 00:56:14

So similarly, the first thing that was exposed from other money exposed of other money Salaam and his wife was Leah Houma, so ottima but that lahoma saw our Tahoma their private areas became exposed as a result of their sins. And that's what the scholars they say, when a person sins excessively.

00:56:15--> 00:56:32

First they become naked spiritually, they have nothing no shame anymore. And then that transfers into physical nakedness. Where they lose modesty and they literally stop start stripping their clothes off and they become immodest. in the public eye in front of people. Allah protect us all.

00:56:34--> 00:56:37

Then, that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Oh my servants

00:56:39--> 00:56:41

you commit sins by day and night.

00:56:43--> 00:56:59

In the honorable lady Now, one of the Luba Jamia, Allah states two realities. What's the first reality? In ownable layli. When you sin day and night, the truth is that we've probably disobeyed a lot in every minute of the day.

00:57:00--> 00:57:21

Every minute of the day, at some point or the other, we found a way to disobey Allah. In the contest, the owner belay Lee Won the heart. That's one reality one statement. The Second Reality the second statement is what well and the other little bit Jamia, I forgive Austin's. Now, we have two realities here. Let's put them together. First of funi.

00:57:22--> 00:57:24

come and ask me for forgiveness. I'll forgive you.

00:57:25--> 00:57:38

Why do you need to go to someone else? Why aren't you just coming to me? I want to give you You just have to come and ask me for forgiveness. So this opens a discussion of what is his default.

00:57:40--> 00:57:46

When we talk about is too far, the word Toba also comes with addresses too far and we'll address those as well.

00:57:47--> 00:57:52

Well, I'm gonna list the farm in a room for who are tolerable marfil is the far

00:57:53--> 00:58:04

to repent from your sins. What that means is to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala that you keep yourself engaged in busy saying stuff through law stuff through law, stuff or law.

00:58:08--> 00:58:10

There is a narration

00:58:12--> 00:58:13

there's a hobby he says

00:58:15--> 00:58:24

that we would sit in the gathering of the prophets that alone while he was sitting, and we would count how many times the prophets that Allahu Allah He was sitting with say and stuff that alone

00:58:25--> 00:58:35

couldn't do a little Sula Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Why Mira Tamara mentality and you're probably familiar with Kabbalah in the context of

00:58:36--> 00:59:04

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would read this drop 100 times in the gathering before standing up in between conversation every here and there. What was the DA bill fairly well to baliya in October him Oh ALLAH forgive me, Oh Allah accept my repentance. for India in the world. You are the one who accepts repentance, or Rahim, the one who is merciful. keep yourself busy. The Prophet along with Hamas in one narration

00:59:05--> 00:59:35

that he said a lot of money was sent him said that indeed, I read stuff through the law every day, 100 times. Every day that Mufson a lot is sort of what's the stuff for the last stuff at the profit of a law, who has nothing to worry about is saying the stuff for the law. In here we have so much to worry about, and we don't care about stuff for the law. Shouldn't we be constantly asking a lot for forgiveness, constantly keeping yourself busy doing stuff for the law stuff for the low? Then we come to the word October. What does October mean?

00:59:38--> 00:59:46

when defining the technical definition of the word October, he says Toba is to leave a sin theoretical than

00:59:48--> 00:59:59

to leave a sin due to its filthiness due to its dis tastefulness. What shaitan will do is he will present a sin to you in front of you in a way

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

It's beautiful.

01:00:01--> 01:00:08

If you were to, if you were to detach yourself from any sin you're engaged in, by the way, any sin that Allah has told you not to engage in,

01:00:10--> 01:00:17

if you were to detach yourself from it, and imagine someone else is doing it, once you view that to be a filthy act,

01:00:18--> 01:00:34

if you weren't doing it, if someone else was doing it, you would say, what a messed up thing. Why would someone Why is someone doing that that just looks wrong? It's not right. How shaytaan does it is that things that were universally inappropriate and wrong, he packages them was a good and

01:00:35--> 01:00:57

beautiful package, and the packages and packages and packages it until what's wrong now was presented as being attractive. And once it's marketed that way, even the most filthy and inappropriate thing, people will, they'll run to it. Right? I mean, if someone were to tell you that when you drink

01:00:59--> 01:01:03

I don't know some pink juice that it's mixed with Beatles, would you ever have it?

01:01:05--> 01:01:33

Huh? No, I mean, who would have a juice that's and has Beatles in there. But you just change Beatles and call it carbine. And write it on the ingredients. Everyone drinks it. Karma is a very common ingredient in pink drinks. That's why ever heard of the statement that you can have m&ms but not the red one. Ever heard of that? It's actually I'm not giving a fatwa, by the way. But there is some there is something to it. Because the most common red coloring or pink coloring in the western food industry in the market is what Carmen and where does Carmen come from?

01:01:35--> 01:01:46

This most a lot. By the way, you guys are quiet. There's no spin off Carmen comes from where? It comes from beetles. If someone were to tell you that your bread has hair in there or nails in there, would you ever have it?

01:01:47--> 01:02:14

No, call it Elsa. Steve Barton on the back of your bread. everyone eats it. Nobody cares anymore. Right? It isn't a package it right. You can be racist too. By the way, all you have to do is package it right. You can be rude if you want to just package it right? be inappropriate if you want to, all you have to do is package it right. Look around the world. Look at the world around you. You'll see a lot of messed up stuff. All you have to do is you can show nudity in movies in Hollywood, all you have to do is call the art.

01:02:17--> 01:02:17

What do you call it?

01:02:19--> 01:02:37

Call just call it art. So this is art. And that's it. And what's interesting is that this art always happens to be about women that art has never done very little with men, by the way that art of nudity is usually with the female gender. It's literally it's objectification of the female gender, that's what it is. But what do people call it?

01:02:38--> 01:02:40

It's art. That's what it is.

01:02:42--> 01:02:44

The whole world is foolish, that you just pack it in however you want.

01:02:46--> 01:02:54

So he says to leave a sin while recognizing that it's filthy, it's distasteful, it's ugly, if I may say

01:02:55--> 01:02:57

what azeema to Allah Terkel

01:02:58--> 01:03:03

Maota and to make an intention, affirm intention that I will never do the sin again.

01:03:05--> 01:03:20

And then to do whatever it takes to save yourself from doing that again, meaning if you need counseling or counseling of the equation, if it means you change your companions, change your companions, whatever you need to do to save yourself from falling in that sin again, you need to do that.

01:03:22--> 01:03:46

mana contra de la YALI when defining Tibetan the surah Allah says in the Quran to Buddha law he overturn the suhar repent to Allah with sincere repentance. So he while defining Gilbert the Messiah, he says, Well, he had been a matter of the first thing though within the school is literally about physical actions and much more to do with a spiritual state you need to enter How does a person enter into a spiritual state

01:03:47--> 01:04:20

where you are sincere in your repentance. He says, Well allow me to have in the sign of sincere repentance and yakata Khaled El Moussa maaseiah. When you start to be hoo ha. ferrata Allah who Allah balin para todo que hace para person ends up hating that sin or disliking that sin to such a degree that they don't go back to it and they don't even desire it anymore. I recall when I was young, I was having a discussion with one of my classmates. We were talking about how does a person abandoned sin? How do you stop living a life of sin?

01:04:22--> 01:04:41

So we came up with different ideas. One person said Oh, every time you send, give $1 and another person said every time you send me to college, there were different ideas that were presented in that in that classroom. And that discussion. One of my classmates, a lot reward him he said something so profound. We were young at the time, but I still remember what he said. He said the only true way to leave a sin is to hate it.

01:04:42--> 01:04:48

You have to reverse the effect of shade. shade on made it mozillian you have to make it again

01:04:50--> 01:04:52

shaytaan beautified it, what do you have to do?

01:04:53--> 01:04:59

You have to reverse that. That a concept that conception you have of that deed it's all about

01:05:00--> 01:05:10

Positive and negative reinforcements. If you've studied psychology, there's a big weight on positive and negative reinforcements. How you enforce something is how people will perceive it. So for example,

01:05:11--> 01:05:12

there is

01:05:14--> 01:05:53

smoking is bad. We can agree on that, right? I mean, just look at the act itself. It smells horrible. It's it's a waste of money. It's bad for your health, all that stuff. How did the How did the tobacco industry get the world to start smoking? They created positive reinforcements started showing cool people were smoking, movie actors, horsemen marketing and making the cool and fine and good positive reinforcement. Then what happens is they realize everyone's dying. So in order to create a balance, what do they do? They created a negative reinforcement, shut up putting on on the cartons that smoking causes cancer, smoking kills with the hope that that negative reinforcement

01:05:53--> 01:06:28

will stop people. So it's about how you package something how you enforce the promise that allow a person who comes to the process and a lot of time a young man and says I have a desire to commit Zina. The Prophet has just like a small window to convince him not to do it. How do you convince someone who's set on committing a sin rather than physically approaching it the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he approaches it from an intellectual, philosophical, philosophical, psychological standpoint. He says to him, what if that was someone that was closely related to you? That beautiful image he had in his mind what happened to it? It shattered that thing that he was just attracted to

01:06:28--> 01:06:48

now what happens? He is no longer interested in anymore. as we'd say in our language. He's turned off now. Right? He's no longer attracted to that thing anymore. That person said, After that I wasn't interested in Xena. Because the purpose of a lot of money was some he fix. He created balance in my perspective, when it came to sins.

01:06:52--> 01:07:30

There's a lengthy discussion shift a shift with Tommy Rahmatullah Holly regarding this, and also, you know, we don't have to lie yet. He actually has this discussion as well. You know, we don't have to lie. Lee says, adobo to watch button Minh Coulee Dam, that Toba is mandatory and necessary for every sin usually when the word of them is used in a classical perspective, it refers to major sins. Usually when the word of thumb is used, it comes in the context of this isn't like a hard principle. This is a common language that's used amongst Mojave food. They use the word them to refer to matrices. So October to watch it, but to mean clearly, the mid October is mandatory and necessary

01:07:30--> 01:08:09

for every major sin. Then he says, For shuru to hatherleigh. The conditions for Toba are three, what is the first thing that you abandon December, you can't be doing the harem and doing Toba at the same time, you need to first of all abandon this and that's a sign of absolute sincerity. The second thing is that you have the Dhamma you have regret overdoing that action, your heart feels regret, it feels bad that I shouldn't have done it. You feel remorse over that action. And the third thing is you make a promise never to do it again. You promise yourself I won't go back to that sin again. Now the question is What if a person does it again?

01:08:11--> 01:08:13

You guys understand? So for that there is a beautiful Hadith

01:08:15--> 01:08:18

narrated by Aqua binominal the Allahu taala on

01:08:20--> 01:08:45

the month of July linear it's in his career and also in his in an afternoon reading and he says, well, it's not who hasn't that it's narration is good. He's intelligent and Jilin Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for Kalia rasulillah I do not yet know that a person who came to the office of allamani was sentiments of a messenger of Allah. Sometimes we commit since the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Dr. Bala he and that sin will be written against him.

01:08:47--> 01:09:10

Then that person said to my stuff, gentlemen Jolla tube, then that person repents and he turns back from his sin. The puffs of allowed assumes that you'll follow what you tabali Allah forgive him and accept his repentance. And the questioner said Pharaoh, do you ever know that he repeats again and commits a sin again? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, for your family, then it will be written against him again.

01:09:11--> 01:09:30

Then the questioner sets the last little bit where to then he makes Toba and Stefan you repent to Allah. The Prophet said, yo, yo, yo, I don't know who you are, they can Allah will forgive him in a low acceptance, repentance again, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and Allah will not get tired of forgiving you as long as you don't get tired of asking them.

01:09:32--> 01:09:59

Right? If you make the mistake 100 times leave it 100 times and a law will continue to forgive you. And the scholars may say there's a fourth condition. The fourth condition is hustle and bustle, he says is that along with leaving the sin, being regretful over the sin and making a promise not to go back to it, discontinue or cut off any pathway that will lead you to that sin again. So for example, if there's something hot on you're looking at, you need to delete all of it. Something else

01:10:00--> 01:10:16

I'm here listening to you need to delete all of it. If there's a person who inspires you to hit on, get rid of that person, delete that person's phone number and tell them inshallah, I'll see you in Genesis, I want to ask for this dunya I don't want to see you anymore. Get rid of all the negative influences that will take you back to that sin. This is a sign of sincere Toba and repentance.

01:10:18--> 01:10:44

Now, if you have violated someone's right, then in order for your Toba to be accepted, you have to undo the wrong that you did. either pay that person back for the wrongs that you did to them if you took their money or whatnot. Or ask that person for forgiveness directly. Finn come up and kind of matter. Oh, Raja Raja Hooray. If a person took someone's while for something similar to that you have to return it back to them. In order for your Toba to be accepted.

01:10:46--> 01:11:21

There are many ways to have yourself forgiving, many ways to get forgiveness. You. The most simplest thing is a stick bottom Toba don't think of a stepfather and Toba as a very lengthy process. The truth is that it's not. It's a very simple, it's a very easy process. It's a process of the heart. It's a process that requires sincerity. You can make a sniff out of this moment right now and I actually encourage you before this gathering is over, ask Allah for forgiveness. If you are to pass away this night, you don't need to tell anyone you don't need to say anything. It's purely an affair of the heart. ask Allah for forgiveness for the wrong you've done. Don't delay it, you keep delaying

01:11:21--> 01:11:25

it. And Allah knows if we'll have another day to make that Toba or not.

01:11:26--> 01:11:31

There are two three more things let me just go through them briefly so we can finish off

01:11:32--> 01:12:08

on modern photography, a lot one he could he he advises companions, he's an intellectual elector would be in favor of either that sit with those who repent to Allah frequently, because they are the ones with the softest hearts. This is also a way to inspire yourself with Bilbo sitting with people who are constantly making stuff out of DOMA. There was a person in the Indian subcontinent history known as hakima stuff would have lost the reason why they call them hakima stuff that allows because he would keep saying stuff for the How are you doing? I handed out stuff for less stuff less left less left, always making the stuff that allows us to call them hakima stuff at about

01:12:11--> 01:12:38

a person who came along on narrates as narrated by mom to me that a person came to the office that allamani was sort of fatale out of sort of lot. I committed a sin, a great sin number of him and I committed a great sin Finally, mantova is there any forgiveness for me? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said hello Carmen. Is your mother alive? On ally said no, my mother has passed away for Hello coming holla Do you have a maternal aunt that's alive? he said.

01:12:39--> 01:12:55

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said then be obedient to her. This is also a way for being kind to your parents. That alone will forgive you. You know they'll make repentance. They'll ask for forgiveness on your behalf you ask for forgiveness to be inspired by good deeds by doing good deeds. You'll be inspired to make Toba as well.

01:12:57--> 01:13:06

allama Shepherd Islamia, Tamia, Mo loudhailer regarding Toba. He has a very valuable, beautiful point. It's one that's worthy of being written with gold.

01:13:07--> 01:13:08

He says

01:13:09--> 01:13:14

mantapa Toba kannamma carrot had hit over most of the liver Ferrari.

01:13:15--> 01:13:43

See the thing? There's a big question. The question is is when I make Toba? When I ask Allah for forgiveness, do I need to list all of my sins one by one? Or can I just make a general hope? You understand the question? Do I need to list all of my sins that I committed in the past? Or can I just say Oh ALLAH forgive me sincerely, just overall generally and allowable, forgive me. So she's got Islamic leukemia, I'm allowed Allah says, Whoever makes a Toba Arma general Toba while that person is sincere, that will suffice all of his sins.

01:13:44--> 01:13:47

As long as now there's a condition he puts here, as long as

01:13:50--> 01:13:53

he isn't avoiding thinking of something

01:13:54--> 01:14:30

you understand, as long as he as long as he isn't? Avoiding thinking of something. So for example, there are 10 sins, a person is engaged, and he's asking a lot for all forgiveness for all 10. But he knows that there's one of those 10 if he actually thought about it, his heart wouldn't be sincere and forgiveness because he's still attached to it. So in order for that same thing to be forgiven, then he has to specifically make double for that thing. Otherwise, for everything else, it doesn't need to be listed. One general Koba will suffice them all, the remaining part of the Hadith, the truth is that the message of it is one and it's clear, which is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has

01:14:30--> 01:15:00

been studying Allah subhanaw taala is independent. This message that Allah has given us in this hobby is only for our benefit. Allah subhanho wa Taala is not harmed in any way. This is a summary of the remaining part of the Hadees everyone became pious, it doesn't help a lot. It doesn't make a lot greater in any way. If everyone became Rashid, it doesn't harm a lot anyway. If everyone asked him Allah and Allah gave everyone it would have decreased from Allah in any way at all. Allah is saying that in the Mahabharata, Kumasi halochem, this is all for your sake for Murphy komiya and you will be

01:15:00--> 01:15:35

compensated based on your deeds for much of the failure and failure medela whoever does good, you did it for yourself. Be thankful to Allah. Allah gave you the opportunity Allah gave you that aid I know we talked about earlier first that duty that you asked me for he gave it to be thankful to Allah azza wa jal de danika and whoever finds other there other than good in their book of deeds on the day of judgment that I illumine in laughs then don't blame anyone other than yourself. This happy to could see it's a very powerful narration there are so many messages jam packed in here. I encourage every one of you as the automa allama Cynthia hotel la de la the great Hadith he said that

01:15:35--> 01:16:13

if there was one heavy, I will tell every Muslim to memorize. It's this heavy the bubble that will fit with your loved one. This is the one Heidi and I encourage every one of you to spend some time with us have you think reflect over its message. Such a powerful message. May Allah subhanho wa Taala inspire our hearts allow these hearts to feel dependent to our Lord and our Creator. And Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and save us forever forgetting our a lot that we ask from others that we turn to others while Allah is waiting for us. Pray that Allah subhanaw taala forgives us, guides us, clothes us feeds us and keeps us in His mercy or sort of law that said I want to lighten up
