Episode Notes

On the authority of an-Nawas bin Samaan (r), that the Prophet (s) said: Righteousness is in good character, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul, and which you dislike people finding out about.[Muslim]
And on the authority of Wabisah bin Maabad (r) who said: I came to the Messenger of Allah (s) and he (s) said, You have come to ask about righteousness, I said, Yes. He (s) said, Consult your heart. Righteousness is that about which the soul feels at ease and the heart feels tranquil. And wrongdoing is that which wavers in the soul and causes uneasiness in the breast, even though people have repeatedly given their legal opinion [in its favour].

00:02:32--> 00:02:36

inshallah Today we are starting with Heidi's number 27

00:02:38--> 00:02:44

Well, it's Mama harkavy, Neff seeker. What are the what are the other is Sati wine after wine of darkness of the

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

Muslim.

00:03:33--> 00:03:51

So this hadith is narrated by this particular narration. The truth is that it's actually two narrations. It's not one narration, two narrations. The first narration is narrated by Mr. Muslim along with the LA County and the second narration

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

can be found in various collections of

00:03:56--> 00:04:41

the first Hadeeth is narrated by Noah Osmond, semi auto with the last one he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, righteousness is in good character. And wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul and which you dislike people finding out. And then in the narration of Wabi Sabi Muhammad, he said, I came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said to me, You have come to ask about righteousness. I said, Yes. He said, consult your heart. righteousness is that which the soul feels at ease in the heart feels tranquil. And wrongdoing is that which wavers in the soul and causes an easiness in the breast, even though people have repeatedly given their

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

legal opinion in its favors.

00:04:45--> 00:04:58

So as I just mentioned that this hadith is actually a composition of two separate narrations by two separate narrators, and these narrations are in different books. The first narration is from a companion of the law

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

whose name

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

is a Noah's been some on

00:05:04--> 00:05:28

some scholars when introducing him, they have introduced him as a no Aspen some odd unsavoury. They say he is an unsightly Sahaba. However, I'm not we're not going to lie he had a while commentating on this exact same Hadith because it's present in a Muslim. He said that this attribution of it being him being on Sati is not correct, because he is actually killaby.

00:05:30--> 00:06:02

And then he shares his lineage, as his lineage can also be found and also the lava that his name is unknown to us the senate semaan al killaby, who was the son of the son of Abdullah, the son of the son of Abdullah, the son of a woodworker, the son of keylab, bin br bin Ahmed bin salsa, and army ella killaby. He is considered to be amongst those companions who are from Sham, and I'll share more about that shortly. His father, some admin Khalid

00:06:03--> 00:06:08

was amongst the people who came as a delegation to meet the prophets of Allah while he was in

00:06:10--> 00:06:29

the process that allamani he was selling made to offer him and in return, he gave the promise of a long while he was sort of a small gift. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very generous and he accepted the gift from the person who presented it. Now this person then said O Messenger of Allah, I would like for you to marry my sister.

00:06:30--> 00:06:46

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accepted the proposal, and the niqab was performed. However, when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam came to visit this lady, when he came to meet her, she said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I seek protection from you.

00:06:47--> 00:07:25

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam immediately set to where you have been granted that protection, and he walked out of there. And therefore, that marriage, according to some scholars, was either incomplete or it ended right there. Now, the reason why this is important, this narration from a few different perspectives, one is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had no desire, and not in a mean or harsh way, but to impose himself on someone who, for whatever reason, did not want to be with a prophet sallallahu. So there could be 100 reasons why she did not want to be with the Prophet along audio so what we know is that the wives of the Prophet said a long winding you

00:07:25--> 00:08:06

will sit on we're all carefully selected by Allah subhanho wa Taala. The one who was given that honor to be the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was referred to as well as Roger who had to come the Omaha to many of the mothers of the believers. This particular lady even though she had married the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, due to her lack of desire to be with the Prophet of Allah is in the process that allowed him he left her. Now, this story of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam marrying a late marrying a lady who was from this, who was killaby, who was from the same tribe is commonly known. However, the scholars differ on who exactly she was. I

00:08:06--> 00:08:10

shared with you the opinion of mizzi who says that this was

00:08:11--> 00:08:12

the the sister

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

However, what if Stella fulfill ma with Kathy, there's been a lot of

00:08:19--> 00:08:28

differences of opinion amongst the scholars on who this lady was. Imam even Assad says that she was fought him up into the hotbin Sofia elkie. labia

00:08:29--> 00:08:58

Ahmed Mohammed says in his book that her name was Amina, and some say her name was a smart man lucky labia. Rosati says her name was Robin Tz and Mmm, I will follow She says her name was Melinda. So you can see right here the scholars different opinion on who exactly this lady was. And one of the opinions is, she was a close relative of a nosb Samana with your loved one.

00:08:59--> 00:09:21

This is a hobby not no wisemans amount of your loved one narrates many hobbies in the process of a long while he was sitting and the Hadeeth we are studying today is a hadith narrated by Mr. Muslim Rahmatullah YALI from this hobby, he had many students himself. One of his most prominent students who narrated from an Alaskan some odd, was a great scholar by the name of Al kolani.

00:09:23--> 00:09:37

And not only him, but the people of a sham, as if he had been narrating his book, a thought that Rwanda who avoid diesel kolani will add a sham that the people of Sham and avoid recent kolani narrate from him abundantly.

00:09:39--> 00:09:55

Similarly, drobeta been no fader narrates from him under the chapters of sama, and also the chapters of fifth and fifth and refer to those. Those are hobbies that fall into the chapter that relate to the signs of the day of judgment and things that will occur before the day of judgment.

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

In my Muslim mother law, Holly narrates for a heartbeat

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

The problem the Muslim law, he narrates this hadith from him, and along with him, I'm not going to lie. emember Hydra hit the law YALI also narrates from him, however, remember hiding areas from him in his book, other wounds, not in his body, and other than the two of them the rest of the collectors of this hospita also narrated from him.

00:10:21--> 00:10:25

The second narrator of this Hadeeth is another companion by the name of Wabi Sabi and

00:10:26--> 00:10:51

his lineage is lobbies, been mob had been obeyed in place, when gab binfer had been wonderful, been hardest been found of a Bindu Dan, when acid been hoceima, and he was Javi, who lived the last part of his life in LA, and also passed away in that very similar thought that we see on news regularly these days.

00:10:54--> 00:11:28

Mr. Mahadeva de la Holly writes in his career, regarding him, that this Wabi Sabi ma but sad, is the person who prayed behind the progress that allamani will send them in a line all by his own. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was leading this habit in prayer, and everyone was standing in line. For some reason, he decided not to stand in line with the companions and made his own line at the back. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was informed of this, he said, allamani he was sort of commanded him and you are either that he repeated his prayer.

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

He describes the some of the profits of the long line and

00:11:34--> 00:11:37

he says, I saw the profits of the long line, he said, I'm praying so long.

00:11:38--> 00:12:15

He lived a short period of the profit. By the way, he didn't stay too long, maybe one year or so he spent with the profits that a lot of them, but during this one year, he asked many questions and he was very observant. The Sahaba, who lived in Madina, munawwara, many of them, because the Prophet's life was not coming to an end, they had seen the Prophet sallallahu wasallam aging, they would refrain from asking questions. Similarly, there was some times where the Prophet said a lot of money was sent him forbade the companions from asking questions. The reason why he forbade them was because the profits concern was if people asked too many questions, maybe something maybe something

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

would become obligated by a law that wasn't obligated already.

00:12:19--> 00:12:54

If someone may ask, you know, do we have to do it every year? The profit along it assumes concern was that if I said yes, you would have to do whatever you if you ask about things, it's possible allow me may make those things out of upon you. Because of your keenness and your desire. You might do them but people until the day of judgment that will come How will they do has revere? How will they pray? What are we every day? So the purpose of a long while they will set them in order to avoid increasing any sort of mischief or difficulty upon the oma. But tell us how about to refrain from asking questions at times. So it was Sahaba like him that would come and visit Medina manana

00:12:54--> 00:13:29

for a short period. And they would ask a lot of questions. And the other Sahaba they say that because these people would ask such beautiful, intelligent questions, everyone in the classroom would benefit. That's why they say well, first, early this one, as the Hadith teaches us that our good question is half of knowledge and will come more to this issue ahead. Even number one Hunter lakhiani has dedicated a heavy to this issue. When we get there we'll discuss it more. So what was the big mob? It was a Sahabi, who was very keen in observing the process of the law it was so and also an asking good questions. He says

00:13:32--> 00:13:40

that, I saw it right Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam either coffee solid tea, low Subala vehement when

00:13:42--> 00:14:06

I saw the profits of a long line he was set on praying sola and when he did record, his back was so straight, the profits back was so straight in record, that if someone were to pour water on the profits back, it wouldn't flow, it would stay in its place. The water wouldn't go forward, wouldn't go back wouldn't go to the left wouldn't go to the right, they would stay in its place. That's how straight the back of the Office of the long audio system was when he would pray.

00:14:08--> 00:14:54

He was amongst a group of people who came as a delegation to meet the prophets of Allah they would set them from burning acid in the ninth year after he died. He is a companion of the Prophet Allahu Allah. He was someone who later on moved to Kufa and then from Kufa from Madhava Illa Raka and then he moved over to LA while Tama Bihar, Illa and Martha and he lived there until he passed away. He had four sons, Ahmad Salim, Aqua, and Abdul Rahman. his two sons Ahmed and Salim actually narrate and eat from him. And they say regarding him gala Raja Makati and he was one that would read the Quran excessively. bucha and he would cry a lot like me Kodama who he would not have control over

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

his tears he would cry and cry and cry.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Wabi Sabi and mom but student abordar

00:15:00--> 00:15:31

As it off, he says that I would come to visit Wabi Sabi Mbit la Cala t to illa wadjet to Al Mustafa mo who unveiled a very rarely did I meet him, but there wasn't already a Koran sitting in front of him he would be sitting there reading the put on Hot Tamale who potable water. And I would look and I would notice that not only was there a put on in front of him, but the pages of that put on were wet because of his tears. He would read the Quran and he would cry and cry and cry.

00:15:33--> 00:15:50

he narrates from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he also narrates from evidence rather the long one there's a famous narration here it's from him and also from oma placement the messenger remember the old Imam Timothy mmm even imagine all narrate from him. Remember, hardly any Muslim do not narrate from

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

from Wabi Sabi Muhammad.

00:15:54--> 00:16:23

This narration regarding what is good and what is bad, asking about the good and the bad. There are many companions who asked similar questions, even the story of Wabi Sabi when he came to ask the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. There are different there are various narrations of this. For example, in one narration, Wabi Sabi says about your loved one, at at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why not wait

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

a minute. It was with me in Los Altos.

00:16:28--> 00:16:52

He says I came to meet the prophets of a long while he was seven. And I made an intention that I would today ask the prophets of Allah it was sort of everything regarding what is good and what is the bad. I wanted to ask him everything. In my mind. I have convinced myself that today any thought that comes to my mind, I'm going to ask him and I will have the complete guide to righteousness and wrongdoing.

00:16:54--> 00:17:07

He says so I started cutting through people. The Prophet was sitting in the gathering at the front, I started swerving through the gathering, making my way to the front. Every time I tried to move forward, people would say go back, go back, go to the back of the gathering, go to the back of the gathering,

00:17:08--> 00:17:10

aka Wabi Sabi, rasulillah.

00:17:12--> 00:17:18

For pool to the OD, as an omen. He said to the people leave me alone, I want to go close to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:17:19--> 00:17:58

He says, because there is no one in the world, who I love to be closer to at this moment, then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which teaches us that of seeking knowledge, rather than sitting far in the gathering, the other is to sit as close as you can. While we're starving mama wasn't happy with being at the back. He wanted to be close and so close, so close, that he says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said to me, ordinaria Wabi Sabi Come closer. He says, For the note who I came a little closer, the profits of ordinaria Wabi Sabi come even closer. He said, I came very close to the office of the law while he was selling hot mustard, hot mustard

00:17:58--> 00:18:05

broke with a property until my two knees were touching the knees of the Prophet that a lot of you said a meeting, I was very close.

00:18:07--> 00:18:23

In my mind, I have this desire to ask so much about bitter and Islam, the good and the bad. But before I even asked a question, the prophet said a lot of money he was sent him said, Yeah, Wabi Sabi. Oh, obviously. Let me tell you why you've come here today.

00:18:25--> 00:18:32

So he was puzzled that I haven't told anyone why I'm going to meet the Prophet. And there's no way he could know what I'm thinking of.

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him

00:18:36--> 00:18:47

aloni on hability, if you came today to ask me about righteousness and wrongdoing, he said, I was so puzzled that I answered in one word, go to now.

00:18:48--> 00:19:12

I said, Yeah, that sums it up. That's why I came for Carla. He says, He then says, For Gemma, asabe, Yahoo. Word yada, yada to be happy. Suddenly. He said the purpose of the law while he was sort of gathered his fingers together, is sort of tapping my heart started tapping my chest like this. We'll call it Yeah, Wabi Sabi. And the Prophet said, Oh, Wabi Sabi is stuff difficult.

00:19:13--> 00:19:14

Ask your heart

00:19:15--> 00:19:58

was stuffed enough sick, ask your neffs and then he continues on with the answer, similar to what was shared in the above narration. Now there's another narration from a month of Ramadan with the lady with a weakened aeration, a wheat chain, but he narrates it from laughing I've been a spa for the long run. One thing I said to the interview so long while he was selling FTD on m&a last Luca on who hadn't bothered or messenger of Allah, give me such advice. Give me such a ruling open up this issue to me that I'm confused on in such a way that I will never have to ask anyone ever again. The purpose of the long one he was sort of gave him a similar response. Is that enough sick ask

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

yourself, ask your heart

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

what's right and what's wrong?

00:20:03--> 00:20:19

Okay for Libby duck, he's a messenger of Allah. But how will I do that? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that ma UD will allow you to leave that which puts you in doubt and live with that which does not put you in any doubt, free yourself from any doubt.

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

And the purpose of the long run he was sent him and said to him,

00:20:23--> 00:21:02

tada, tada yada, yada you place your hand on your heart. for England, for other for England for other Yes, goneril halali what is going on in hora, because the heart will never be at peace with haraam. It will only be at peace with what's allowed. A person who commits zinna ask them the first time they come and observe them their entire life. They fantasize that they thought it would be good it was something that would bring pleasure to them. But once they commit that sin, how guilty dirty and filthy, they feel themselves, someone who's never done drugs in their life. Ask them how you felt the first time you did someone beautified it for them, someone fool them into thinking it was a

00:21:02--> 00:21:39

good idea. Once you do it once you feel so guilty and filthy, because now you know that that virgin self that you were that's not you anymore. That person you just work that's not you anymore. You've just taken a step in your life, you've just turned a page in your life. Someone who's never dealt an interest, someone who's never gambled before, someone who's never drank alcohol before someone who's never cursed back at their parents before someone who's never been abusive before. Someone who has never spoken out against a law little school before. They think that it will free them. But the moment they raise their voice against a line that will sue said a long while he was sudden, after

00:21:39--> 00:21:48

that day, their life will never be the same until unless and until they make Toba just today earlier in class, one student was saying

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

that

00:21:51--> 00:22:12

sometimes we hear stories of the great scholars and how they lived such pure lives. I was sharing with them a story of my mother. So one of the students said that we hear the stories about these great people and we wonder if we can ever be like them. But we've already messed up in life. Everyone has made mistakes, and we realize that we're nowhere near those great people. So is there any chance for people like us?

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

So I replied back in class by saying there's one Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that makes me smile, because it gives hope to a sinner like me.

00:22:23--> 00:22:37

And that how do you think the purpose of the long run he sort of he sort of on even said him said and this needs to bring a smile to the heart of every Muslim that hears. He said a lot while he was sort of said that he will mean have them be common. Let them be.

00:22:38--> 00:22:42

The one who repents from a sin is like the one who has no sin.

00:22:43--> 00:23:26

A lot Allah, what a beautiful offering. What a beautiful promise. You repent to Allah sincerely. You might think that the sin is greater than Allah. But the truth is no sin can be ever greater than Allah. Lo at a deli before I will have the Hata de to be poorer, we must feel rotten. If you came to me with an earth full of sin, I would come to you with an earth full of forgiveness. You can never outdo them. Right? If you came to Allah with the take your imagination as far as it can go, and fill that container with sin, as long as you come to a law and you don't make [???] up with a lot of luck and forgives you and Allah will forgive you but you but that doba has to be sincere.

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

And then another narration

00:23:32--> 00:23:42

from a black man in La Jolla. He says that Roger unsilent, the VSL allamani he was selling for Pollyanna cinema. Maya Hello Lee mimma from Alia.

00:23:44--> 00:24:04

Florida alayhi salatu Mirage in Mirada in Costa Rica. Yes, Kubernetes or Allahu alayhi wa sallam. This person asked a similar question regarding halal and haram righteousness and wrongdoing right in bad, the wrong in the bad to the opposite along at the wrong and the right for the purpose of the law. It was sort of the promise of a lot while he was sort of remained silent. He didn't say anything to

00:24:05--> 00:24:15

this person says I got up and I left the gathering the proximate along while he was sitting then Seth MacFarlane, Amos saying, where's the question about? Someone went and called him and said the prophets calling you

00:24:17--> 00:24:38

out of a out of sort of law. He said I'm here, the prophets of the longwater he was selling. He then said to him that wrong is that which your heart does not allow you to accept my encara falcata for that, who that would show heart dislikes then leaving a little Flotsam and bustle he narrates his narration in his module.

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

Now this how do you the Wabi Sabi motmot is from the alum in Nicaragua. It's from the villa in Nepal. It's a sign a clear sign of the Nobu and Prophethood of the Prophet sallallahu. My name is sir, because it was impossible for the purpose of allowing them to know this person's question without that person even saying what his question was.

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

This wasn't the first time this has happened many times before, where people would come to the office that allamani was set on with certain questions. And the Prophet said a lot of it was set him what answer the question. First he would tell that person what the question was, and then answer to. There's one narration. It's weak, but scholars have quoted it. That one time Abu Abu Jamal, he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the prophets, staunch enemy. And he said, Oh, Mohammed,

00:25:27--> 00:25:30

if you tell me what's in my hand, I'll become Muslim.

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

If you tell me what's in my head, I'll become Muslim.

00:25:35--> 00:25:41

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, Well, if I tell you what's in your hand, you might say it was lucky guess

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

you might say that I got lucky.

00:25:46--> 00:25:49

And that's too easy. So I'll do you wanna

00:25:50--> 00:25:55

take the stones that are in your hand, put them next to your ear, and they'll tell you who I am.

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

He said he took the stones next to his ears, and he can hear a shadow

00:26:02--> 00:26:02

or shadow.

00:26:04--> 00:26:15

But I wish I had was one of those people who was begging for miracles for entertainment. The heart of the truth was never on his radar. Neither was something that he was interested in.

00:26:17--> 00:26:32

So the question comes, what is been in what is what is good? What is righteousness? And this, by the way, can be a very philosophical issue. Because philosophers view righteousness to be purely subjective.

00:26:34--> 00:27:12

There's one thing that could be righteous at one point, and that very same thing could be wrong at another point. Similarly with wrong, you'll have philosophers like Plato and Socrates who argue that whether there is any true grounding and true meaning any rock solid meaning to what right and wrong actually is. In Islam, we do accept, accept subjectivity at times, yes, there may be, you know, a spin to a reality. But the truth is when it comes to issues like a bit of an ether, most of it if not all of it has actually already been grounded within the DEA.

00:27:13--> 00:27:56

And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala confidently says in the Quran, towards the end of its revelation to the prophets of Allah while he will send him a Yama to the convener comb will attempt to alikum. Giamatti, what are the two recommend Islam Medina, law can never truly be subjective. It can't No, no, law can be subjective, but it kept purely subjective. If every person wants to put their own spin on what's right and wrong, you can never have a judge or you can never have a court that can give fulfill the right of those who are oppressed, because every oppressor ultimately views himself as the oppressed. If you go on to on YouTube, and browse the interviews of some of the

00:27:56--> 00:28:03

greatest known oppressors of the world, who are who who have clearly without any doubt,

00:28:05--> 00:28:46

you serve the land of innocent people, illegal settlements, apartheid, people who have used chemical bombs against their own chemical weapons against their own people, some of the greatest suppressors, if you were to watch their, their interviews of them being interviewed on like live TV, you know, people who are directly responsible for genocide, and yet they deny that any Muslims are being killed in their country. You know, so many examples in our own day, and in our own time, right now, today, if you were to look at their interviews, and watch, you will see that the volumn views themselves as being mother noon, that I'm the one that's oppressed. So in Islam, there is a concept

00:28:46--> 00:29:20

there's a definition to what righteousness is and what sin is. Now someone can then counter argue and say, that doesn't sound like what the Hadith is saying. The Hadith repeatedly, you quoted three have eaten and all three narrations, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to this hobby, that ask your heart, ask your heart. So that seems like the exact definition of subjectivity that it's up to you. There's no objective definition of what of sin and unrighteousness and I'll answer this issue later on in today's class. But right now, I want to put some definitions to these words.

00:29:23--> 00:29:26

The scholars they define the word bill.

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

The simplest definition of the word bitter is righteousness. That which is from the thought from those actions, which are considered to be from for the obedience of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:29:43--> 00:30:00

And you are either B he fireluke me authority, a va hero t l belting it while about unity, that any act of obedience to Allah whether its internal or external kokkola heat Allah as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in verse number 170

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

Seven of Surah Al Baqarah

00:30:03--> 00:30:20

lacewell good Ratan Tuvalu Hakuna Matata de Waal McGreevy and then that Allah says while our Kindle gorilla, however bill is so there isn't that you turn your face to the left or right when you're worshiping. What is better not Allah gives it a finishing man. I'm Anna Vila who will be

00:30:21--> 00:30:45

the first and the most important element of bidding is proper righteousness. That's what it all starts if a person is righteous in their eemaan Now we can continue the discussion. But email is a central component, then the part that Allah subhanaw taala says Mohammed Abdullah he will Yeoman Asad who believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment, when melodica the angels when Kitab want to be in the books and the prophets will

00:30:46--> 00:31:26

be here that will corba and righteousness is to give your wealth even though you love it you have a desire for it you've worked so hard for it, but yet you give it to those that are close to you while you're Tama you give it to the orphans What am I Sakina you give it to those that are pure webinar Sabine you share it with the travelers was sad II mean you give it to those that are asking this is righteousness. What are you spend your wealth in freeing slaves? Well Thomas Sol out artists aka and righteousness is to establish your prayer. righteousness is not just all in your heart. It's not just an idea of being good. Righteousness actually includes actions with a comma Salah, establishing

00:31:26--> 00:32:09

clear, while others aka giving yours aka one move for him. Either I do righteous people are those who fulfill their promises. Once they make a covenant once they make a commitment, they follow through with that commitment. While savini and I feel about sir He was the RA you were Hainan bus patrons. They are patient in times of difficulty. And even when standing in the battlefield, when Buzz buzz would equal levena sodoku these are people that are truthful. What would you go home with a phone and these are people that are conscious. One interesting thing you'll see in the Quran that Allah subhanho wa Taala brings the word righteousness with the worth of the I started off by saying

00:32:09--> 00:32:50

what I Kindle girl and ended up by c'est la ecoman moutoku see how started off with righteousness and ended with taqwa. Similarly, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, what are our new Albury what taqwa and be pillars of support to one another? When it comes to righteousness, and God consciousness, you're going to a lecture don't go alone, tell someone come along with me. You bring someone with you. Maybe in that class in that lecture, they'll learn something that they really needed to. How often does it happen that after a lecture, someone will come and say, Chef, I heard your lecture today. And you talked about everything I needed to hear in my life.

00:32:51--> 00:33:28

And I'll tell them, honestly, I had no idea what you needed to hear in your life. But rather, it's your sincerity that you come with a lie inspires our hearts to say what we say. Because this was the exact same statement. I said to my teacher one day, by Allah, I remember that day, it was after our shift gave a lecture after mother had been his machine. And the machine Kabira in in Berlin. And after he gave the lecture, I went to him and I said to him shift today, what you're talking about. That was something that I've been reflecting over the past few weeks, and I was just thinking of the proper, proper way to structure this discussion, and the proper answer to my question, and today in

00:33:28--> 00:33:46

the lecture, you provided structure, and you provided an answer. And he said to me, saying, the truth is that I had no idea what you were thinking, but it was your sincerity. that inspired me. A lot inspired me with the thoughts that I shared with the words that I used. So without a lot of a tough one.

00:33:48--> 00:33:56

Even Roger will humbling others, they discussed this issue of why bitter and dakhla come together why these two words come together and he says

00:33:58--> 00:34:38

What about putting what you put in a little robot taqwa. And when the word bill comes together with the word duckula in the Koran, for Claudia Kumara, to be very marmorata healthy, San Joaquin tuck wha wha monitor hockey before it he watched the NaVi Mahabharata he, he says then the word better means to interact with the creation of a law in an excellent manner. And the word duckula means to interact with Allah subhanho wa tada by being obedient to Him, and avoiding avoiding his disobedience.

00:34:40--> 00:35:00

We'll call the Kodiak UI that will vary theology but what we toccoa is terrible Maha Rama. Some scholars, they say that the word bitter comes in the meaning of fulfilling the commandments of Allah and the word duckula. Because top law if you look at the root word of it, it means it's a sort of prevention. It means to prevent yourself from that

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

The disobedience of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:35:04--> 00:35:10

Now in this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a good or official, righteousness is good character.

00:35:13--> 00:35:20

What this actually means is that the most important component of righteousness is good character

00:35:22--> 00:35:59

of the movie solderability the most important component of righteousness is good character comala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hydrographer as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the most important component of Hajj is alpha. It's not the only component. If a person just does auto fine and goes back home. The hydrogen complete actually doesn't even count. You have to do the wofully. Father, you have to do your toe office. Yeah, you have to do Romeo jemalloc you have to do Nobita Mustafa, you have to do more betwinner you have to do and continue on and on. There are so many other components of Hutch, when the Prophet says hydrographer height is alpha. What does that

00:35:59--> 00:36:35

mean? The most important component of your height is alpha. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching us here, that where you dedicate yourself to developing good image seeking knowledge, and you're kind of focusing and building drawing up this map of your spirituality, know that the greatest form of a Baba and the most beautiful deed you can do. The greatest good you can do is a good real hustler. It's good character. Develop in yourself. good character. If Norma Viola one he would say,

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

a good roof shape on her unit.

00:36:39--> 00:36:46

righteousness and doing good is very easy. hellion very simple and very easy. Once you're done, you can walk along and

00:36:48--> 00:37:27

have a smiling face and be soft in your speech. And you've just accomplished good character. You've just accomplished good deeds. You've just accomplished righteousness. Have a smiley face. When you meet people smile at them. When you enter into the home, rather than asking is the food ready? Smile at your spouse's say SNM on ECAM. How are you doing today? Our chef let's say that when people say Salaam Alaikum, their demeanor and their body language contradicts their statement. Because when a person says Salaam that means peace, but their language is so their body language sounds like they're angry and they're intimidated. So

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

they're angry. They're frustrated. So he would say when you say that out loud, he can stretch the law a little bit you might accidentally smile.

00:37:41--> 00:37:59

And you'll enjoy the salon so much more in the person you greet when they see you smile, they'll smile to what you want to leave them a beautiful enlightened face. local admin login and soft speech. This is good Hello. This is what good character actually means.

00:38:04--> 00:38:15

Scholars have taken this issue of better in different directions. What is what is what what what's what's a good deed? They've given different definitions

00:38:17--> 00:38:47

of love and the most skilled or the last one he says Mara Mina and her husband for who are in the line huson Amara who me no no tobyhanna who are in the lobby that what the Muslim oma views to be good a lot accepts that to be good to and what the Muslim Oh my views to be evil and wrong Allah subhanahu wa tada by Allah that thing is also wrong. Now this statement of evidence that your loved one has to be understood because it seems once again, that righteousness is subjective. So in order to understand this issue,

00:38:48--> 00:38:50

we have to take one or two steps back

00:38:53--> 00:38:57

under this discussion albizu mathema la

00:38:58--> 00:39:19

la nefs what is mammography solid that good? Is that what your heart is content with? An evil and bad is that what your heart feels uncomfortable with? Taka the word haka is using this hadith. haka means something that your heart does not feel, does not feel good with you throughout the day. It's it's an, it's an ease with

00:39:20--> 00:39:24

the scholars when commentating on this Hadith, they say

00:39:25--> 00:39:59

this hadith in essence, what it's actually saying is how are you doing to Allah and Allah Fatah Eva who Allah modified Huck was sukoon la he will he work as a fifth tavai Mahabharata will know for under the that Allah subhana wa tada has placed in the heart of every human being, the desire and the nature to accept that which is right and for the heart to be inclined towards it and be content with it and allow some huddled without a has placed in the heart.

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

The desire to stay away from this obedience and anything that is the opposite of righteousness.

00:40:09--> 00:40:10

That's why

00:40:11--> 00:40:58

in the narration of avenham up in the hall of glory by the kunafa muslimeen Allah subhana wa tada said and be happy to put see that I created my servants pure and those who submit to Allah subhanahu wa tada for those who were shale team, and then the devil's came to them first, that's whom I'm Dini him, and they yank them they pulled them away from their religion, for hug Rama, Allah him to the home while I'm at home, and you should be Marlin rally mylonas v suparna. The shout out Dean pulled them away from me, they made them engage in haraam, and made them engage in should encourage them motivated them, nudge them towards ship, even though I gave no such command.

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

So the issue, the issue at hand here is this command of your heart inclining towards that which is right, and that which is wrong, is only for that heart, which is actually sound in the first place. If the heart is sound, it will fulfill its function. But if the heart isn't sound, it won't be able to fulfill its function. The function of a kidney in the body is one thing, the function of the liver of the body is one thing, the function of the lungs in the body is one thing, these limbs will only be able to fulfill their function, if they're healthy. If those limbs are no longer healthy, your same mouth today may not be able to tomorrow, taste sweetness,

00:41:43--> 00:41:49

it may not be able to taste the beautiful flavors that you enjoy in your meals.

00:41:51--> 00:42:31

Every every limb that Allah has given us has a function. And then above that there is a physical function and then there's also a spiritual function to there is a spiritual function of the heart. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said regarding this very same heart By the way, he saw a hot, subtle, hotter just as we read this narration inside, in no ways out of it, that there is a limb in the body. There's a morsel in the body that if it's sound, everything else will be sound. But if it's corrupted, everything else will be corrupted, too. And the companions, Astro messenger of Allah, what are you talking about? What is this Pete? What is this limb? That you're

00:42:31--> 00:42:38

talking about? What is this, Oregon you're talking about? And the prophets of Allah Juan, he sort of said, Hello, here. It's the heart.

00:42:39--> 00:42:42

So Palawan Sallim, ala tala, have you been serene.

00:42:43--> 00:43:25

The pure heart is the heart the prophets have a long way it was set up as describing here. This is why scholars like Imam Azhar Lee and some of the others have argued that this hadith is harsh with the Sahaba. They've made this argument Actually, this hobby is specific to the companions because they had pure hearts. Therefore their hearts were able to incline towards good and refrain from evil. But in a time where the hearts have not been polluted and corrupted, this hadith no longer applies, scholars have refuted even bizarrely and, and co extensively, they've refuted them by saying that this Hadeeth remains, however, the essence of what you're saying will be applied in our

00:43:25--> 00:43:38

day and age to that our hobbies like this will apply to those hearts that are in the first place sound that have the ability to acknowledge that have the ability to feel that yearn for a loss of Carnival without it. How can a heart

00:43:39--> 00:43:44

judge between what Allah likes and dislikes when the heart doesn't love Allah in the first place?

00:43:46--> 00:44:24

If the heart You know, can I say about any person in this room, that I know what color you like? I can't. Now on the other hand, if I have a connection with you, if I spent time with you, you spent time with me, and extended period, then what happens is we begin to know one another. And then a time comes where you're confident to say that whatever this person selects for me, will come because this person really knows me. This person, their heart will bring them to me. Their horrible will their desires, their choices will come to what I desire and what I choose, because this is a very high level of love. This is a level of fun out where you are lost in the love of Allah subhanho wa

00:44:24--> 00:45:00

Taala the font of disobedience is beyond your existence. It's beyond your creation. It's beyond what your mind is wired to function to do. How can your mind ever think of disobedience? So this level of trust at the heart will guide you towards what's right and wrong? Is for a person is for a heart that is connected? But if the hearts disconnected How can it know? How can I know what food you like? I have no idea what food you like. You know, someone sitting here might like Woody it another person here might like burgers, another person here might banana with their ice. Every person has their own thing. The only way you

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

Know as if you spent time with them and you've built a bond you built a relationship with them.

00:45:04--> 00:45:33

And this is what this Hadid is actually saying. As for people whose hearts are ultimately Dune Alhaji Juna Anton de la la de casa kulu, whom, for Allah Allah you burn, as for people whose hearts have left the obedience of a law, they have no desire, no connection with a law at all. Then for these people, what you'll see is that their hearts will desire sin and they will repel righteousness.

00:45:34--> 00:46:06

Their hearts were will desire sin, you present something in front of them that's has a shaped body effect to it, their hearts will jump towards it like magnets. And if you present them with something beautiful like salaah but you've gone in a psychological kasana when they come to salon, they'll be lazy, just showing off to people and they will remember Allah subhana wa Taala but little while if Quran, Allah Allah, Allah minimally they'll, they'll, they'll engage in the remembrance of Allah.

00:46:08--> 00:46:11

And this is why I love I will say Rahmatullah, YALI writes

00:46:13--> 00:46:40

that acabo sallim ala de Andrew Mina De La Hoya Alcala de todos Salim Ali, Robbie, he was selling money MD, that a sound heart, which will be saved from the punishment of Allah on the Day of Judgment. He says, a sound heart, which will be saved from the punishment of alarm, the day of judgment, is that heart which has protected itself first. It's protected itself for a lot. It's protected itself for the commandments of Allah.

00:46:41--> 00:47:28

Allahu Akbar, this state this passage of claim is so it has such a great price. So beautiful. It's priceless. Actually. It has no value. He says 170. Because if you're wondering if this applies to you, and your heart should be allowed to make judgment, if you're one of those people, he says, see if this definition matches. a pure heart is that which has been preserved for the Lord and preserve for the commandments of Allah subhana wa Tada. And it is not to have any desire to argue, or to stand up against any revelation at all. Does your heart open the Accept revelation? Or do you have a tough time accepting revelation? Are you struggling with revelation? Because if your heart hasn't

00:47:28--> 00:47:46

accepted revelation yet, if your heart hasn't submitted revelation yet, then how can your body How can your heart be an extension of revelation? How can your heart be a third man, a translator of what Allah wants from you and what Allah subhana wa tada does not want for you.

00:47:48--> 00:47:57

Lisa, however, he says this is not for every person, rather, this is cos This is special. Allah has given this heart to certain people.

00:47:58--> 00:47:59

Then

00:48:00--> 00:48:38

he continues that a true preserve, receive heart a sound heart is that which is sound in a way that it does not desire anything other than Allah. It submits itself to the command of a la la, la la, la la. While I have a llama Amara hola for la vida de vous only Allah is the goal of that heart. And Allah subhanahu wa tada alone is that person's path. This person has no desire and engaging in that which is doubtful. This person submits himself to every commandment, Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:48:41--> 00:49:17

And then he continues on by saying that when a heart reaches this state that it submits itself to Revelation. It only desires Allah. It has knowledge of the deen in order for your heart to reach this place. It also needs knowledge by the way, it needs sincerity and it needs knowledge. You know, you can't just go off your whim you can't just sit down and think you know how some people do they take an idea of the Quran they put it on the table and they say what do you think this is the seed the rye is haram during the seed of the Quran based off what you think that the Koran means without any real study without any real research without referencing any Sahabi or any Hadid that's not

00:49:17--> 00:49:18

permitted in the DEA

00:49:19--> 00:49:46

and it's poison for your EMA. So, here, even with the law here, it says, at one the heart becomes sound for who are studying one minute, then it will become sound from making partners or the law was said he will meet with it. And it will be sound of any innovations was anyone mineralogy and it will be sound of any deviation was Saleemul mineral bottle and it will be sound from any any falsehood.

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

And then he continues on to say that when a person's heart is sound, you will see characteristics of higher in them they will have modesty when a person's heart is sound. You will find hope

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

And Raja in their heart, they will have hope in a law and they will also be fearful of Allah subhana wa Tada This person when you see him

00:50:09--> 00:50:27

and he continues on it's a longer passage that this person a person whose heart is sound is thus this Tesla Mallika II and this person will submit himself to what Allah has decreed. And he will not argue with it, he will not become angry with it. What Um, yes, but the after that he and he will not become angry with what Allah has decreed for him.

00:50:28--> 00:50:34

And he says, what all of this comes together. That's when you know that your heart is actually sound.

00:50:35--> 00:51:05

So now let's ask this question again. After we've learned that this hobby is talking to a person who possesses a sound heart, and we've actually using this passive development claim that I briefly translated I didn't go through it word by word line by line. But this passage I briefly translated. Once we put that into play as well. And we have a definition of a sound heart. We know this how this honey is directed towards those hearts that are sound. Now let's ask this question again. What do you do if your heart contradicts the Koran and how do you?

00:51:07--> 00:51:10

What do you do? If your heart contradicts the Quran? And

00:51:11--> 00:51:15

someone is telling you that dating is horrible.

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

And you say no, in my heart, I think to myself logically, if I don't date, how will I get married?

00:51:22--> 00:51:59

So then you tell this person? Do you believe that the prophets of Allah had the most successful marriages? Yes, I do. Then show me one. Have you? Even a fabricated one will do at this point, that any profit of a lot ever dated? What uh, hold on, what up with it? And I'll be back. The reason why I say even a fabricated one will do because you won't even find a fabricated narration. You won't find any weak narration. And don't think of doing it right now. Don't think of making one up because fabricating it, there's a major sin. Okay. I mean, there's no such notion. But then your heart says no, but I can't imagine how, you know how I can live a life of peace without getting some pot in my

00:51:59--> 00:52:15

system. I need some brownies. Without those brownies without that hashish How am I going to feel good? You know, I need some jelly. I need some lip balm. You know, people are gonna think to themselves by the way, if you didn't catch these are all different methods of consuming certain substances.

00:52:17--> 00:52:21

That is legal in some states, and it's illegal in other states, you guys can read between the lines and

00:52:23--> 00:53:07

so what do you do? then know that if your thoughts and if your heart goes in a way that clearly contradicts the Quran and Hadith, then know this, then know this, that your heart is not one that should be used for any sort of judgment? Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran surah zap. Mama can only mean in one minute in a la de la hora surah, who ameron akuna Humala fear to marry him that were alarmed that will soon have decreed something when they've told you this is right. What does it mean now? Do you have any choice? Do you have you get to throw your opinion around? Allah says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that women should wear their hijab. The Prophet also told

00:53:07--> 00:53:21

the men grow your beard out the prophets of Allah while at the foot onset pray your salon five times a day. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tada stay away from Xena. Now once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says something you get to spit your thought out of that point? Yes or no?

00:53:23--> 00:53:47

Absolutely not. You cannot. Your thought is meaningless. You actually don't have permission. And you couldn't O'Hara momentarily meaning whenever you actually have no permission to split your thought off. Then you need to take your thought and put it in your pocket, lock it away, take those pants off and burn. You know, get rid of that thought altogether. And I'll share a narration with you that I was teaching the speaking class very powerful narration

00:53:48--> 00:53:50

from afterlife and I'm one of your long line.

00:53:52--> 00:54:12

He He is a known Companion of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam someone whose biography we've covered in detail in this class earlier on, some weeks back, I'm loving on one of your loved one. One day, he was sharing a hadith. And he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do not stop women from attending the masjid.

00:54:13--> 00:54:21

He had a son whose name is mentioned in some narrations below. He said to his father, but that

00:54:23--> 00:54:24

women shouldn't go to the machine.

00:54:25--> 00:54:33

As soon as he said that I love and I'm gonna be a loved one looked at him and said, You You're telling me what you think, after I just told you what the prophet said.

00:54:35--> 00:55:00

But he said, Dad, he said, Stop right now. Do you not understand what you're doing? I just said, but as soon as I said and you want to share your thoughts, he said, but that things have changed women. He said if you say one more word, you're going to be in a lot of trouble and protest it again. The narrator of it. He says that that day of loving Omar he became so upset with the idea that someone thinks that their thought is sacred.

00:55:00--> 00:55:18

nificant their opinion is significant when it contradicts a clear statement and authentic clear statement of a lot of the pursuits of law it so he became so offended by this, that our beloved nominal your loved one, somebody who somebody, like a friend said like he laid it on it.

00:55:20--> 00:55:45

He cussed him out. And he the narrator says I had never heard of love and Arma use language like this before. I didn't even know that if Norman had those words in his vocabulary. And he said, Who is this person, by the way, his own son, because that sort of attitude is not acceptable. Similarly, a lot because people use a heartbeat like this for this very same reason. They'll say My heart says this, but the Koran says this, I'm going to go with what my heart says.

00:55:46--> 00:55:51

If that's the message this have you've conveyed to you has conveyed to you. You've read this as long

00:55:52--> 00:56:20

as for all righteousness and wrongdoing, being subjective, I act like this also clarify they wash out that false thought and that delusion. Similarly a loss of power without it says in Surah Nisa, verse number 65. Find out what will be color you know, the Hata you hockey muka. FEMA shadowbane, en, familia doofy unforeseen Hello, gentlemen, malita, when you suddenly move the schema, a similar message to the previous ayah.

00:56:22--> 00:56:23

So now someone can ask

00:56:24--> 00:56:39

if righteousness is that which the heart is inclined towards in righteousness? Is that with it? The greatest component of righteousness? Is good character in good deeds fit? How do I know?

00:56:40--> 00:57:14

How do I know? If I'm presented with an issue? whether I should act upon it or not? Because the hygienists telling me to use my heart as a guide? At what point do I use my heart? And at what point do not do I not use my heart? Similarly, when it comes to sin? At what point do I use my heart? At what point? Do I not use my heart? Because if we say that this had even saying that, you know, because it's heavy seems to be saying that righteousness is subjective. But I just stated right now that it's purely objective. So is there a middle ground? And yes, there is a middle ground and I want to share that last part with you and finish off today's gathering.

00:57:15--> 00:57:21

When we want to understand what's right and wrong, the first place we start is with the Quran. And

00:57:22--> 00:57:55

that's where we start as the Quran. Is this right? Should I do this? As the Hadith Is this right? Should I do this? In our day and age? Unfortunately, what people do is they say that after o'clock, and then they come as the man that what I did wasn't right or wrong. That's not the right way. That's not the correct method. Before you do something, seek knowledge, find out whether that's the right thing or the wrong thing. What are your options? What's the way of doing it? And then if you do something, now, you're now Now you've made a calculated judgment, that this is what I wanted to do.

00:57:57--> 00:58:09

As for this, how do you that's telling us to use your heart to lean towards something and whether you do it or not. This is in relation to those things, that the hobby or the poor are isn't clear on.

00:58:11--> 00:58:22

Sometimes they may be some issues that are not clear on, you may not have clear knowledge of it, or the scholars of the time haven't come to a conclusive verdict on the issue.

00:58:24--> 00:58:31

They differ in opinion. For example, some scholars have said it's permissible to charge for,

00:58:33--> 00:58:59

for it's permissible to charge for good deeds. For example, you're lecturing something or you're teaching a class, you're doing the Chanukah. Now the issue comes Should I accept an honorarium for this, or let's even push it beyond basic honorariums, because every person at the end of the day does need to provide for their family. But let's talk about insane honorariums. What are my thoughts on collecting $10,000? For a one hour lecture on

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

living a life in simplicity and sincerity?

00:59:04--> 00:59:15

Okay, let's say that was a topic How ironic would it be, but living a life of some sincerity and what do you how much is honorarium? $10,000? Ma sha Allah. Right.

00:59:16--> 00:59:16

Now,

00:59:18--> 00:59:28

the scholars have different opinion on what's the actual ruling on accepting compensation for in return of service of the deen, some have said yes. And I've said no.

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

Now this is an issue that you need to ask yourself, How do you feel about it? What is your heart feel? It's true that you may need to be compensated for your time because at the end of the day, you need to put food on the table and provide for your kids and they have a heart over YouTube. So maybe accepting something is okay. But you have to ask yourself, because in America, not only in America, across the world and the Western world, fundraising has become a very big thing. And 100 a lot of this fundraising is for good and a lot of good is happening in the world. But some of this right has become a business.

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

People are fundraising, and the fundraiser or the institution. And sometimes the institution means one or two people. I'm not talking about major organizations, I'm talking about smaller groups. And even within some of the major institutions, fundraisers are walking away with 10% of what they raise.

01:00:18--> 01:00:21

The person who's giving it has no idea that 10 cents of every dollar

01:00:22--> 01:00:29

are going to this person's pocket. At the end of the night, if that person raised $100,000, how much is he walking away with?

01:00:31--> 01:01:06

$10,000 for a 45 minute fundraiser. Now, if you ask this person, what are you doing? That person may say, it's hard for me, legally speaking, maybe it is hard for you. Maybe you can say what I'm eating Alisha, maybe you can say that there is x, y, and z narration of a Sahabi. He accepted compensation for royalty or whatever you can quote, The hobbies that are commonly quoted. But you have to ask yourself, it's tough to call back, put your heart and ask yourself, How do you feel about that? You're taking money from the poor, for the poor, but it's going to the rich, you're getting wealthy often. And

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

a lot of

01:01:09--> 01:01:53

televangelists, I'm sure you guys are aware that that that this term, were exposed for this. And unfortunately we the Muslims, I fear that we may fall down this, this pathway to where we make this Deen a means of a paycheck. That's it. It's not about the fitness it's about the paycheck some of these exposes of the televangelists when you when you watch them, they're interesting. The reporters asking this person, you know, why did you purchase a $6,000 suit? Or a $5,000? suit? Did you purchase a $3,000? suit? Yes, I did. Did you purchase a Bentley? Yes, I did. Did you purchase a jet? Yes, I did. Yes, I did. Why did you purchase a Bentley and jet? Why did you purchase a $3,000? suit?

01:01:53--> 01:02:31

How does your heart feel about purchasing assets and the hundreds of 1000s while lecturing people about simplicity? This is a prime example of this stuff, you've called back as your heart. How does your heart feel about it? Similarly, issues that scholars differ in again, some scholars may say photography is permitted. Some scholars may say photography is not permitted, is a good example. You ask yourself, How does your heart feel about it? When you read the Hadith of the Prophet of Allah, I'm not, I'm not asking you to sway either way, I'm literally just presenting the case in front of you, those people who say that we don't like photography, and we've used to be hard on some of us

01:02:31--> 01:03:02

look at them. And we think to ourselves, that all these people, they're old school, they don't know any better. But their heart is taking them there because they've read those hobbies and their hearts are concerned that what if we end up becoming a part of that punishment? The Prophet mentioned, another group of people, they'll say, I'm, we're completely okay with it. And I'm one of those people who feel completely okay with it. Why? Because we feel that what we're what photography we're talking about today, picture taking is very different from picture making. There's a nuance difference there. And we feel comfortable with one while knowing that the other is what the prophet

01:03:02--> 01:03:20

said. allamani was sort of warned us against. So this is the place where you need to wait in your heart. Your heart doesn't need to wait in where the pinata Huggies are very clear. That's why the scholars they say, there's no such thing as being staccato for a photo. Like you're not supposed to. It's too hot, or should I pray for her salon? You don't do this the hotter Should I give

01:03:21--> 01:03:38

us the hotter for things that are desirable? When should I get my cigar? When should I go for Hajj? When should I depart for how do you don't do this? The hottest [???] I do that? How do you do it? There's no, you know, Allah wants it from you. That's what I love told you to do it, your heart should desire it. And I'll close with this one statement.

01:03:39--> 01:04:11

If you find yourself at a place in your life, where you know, the Quran and Hadith are clearly saying one thing. And the scholars have also understood that issue in that context. But because of your personal struggle with modern day politics, where you align yourself on certain issues of sexuality, and so on, you have a very tough time accepting that position of Islam. And you use a heartbeat like this to justify it, know that there's something wrong.

01:04:12--> 01:04:26

There's something wrong there. That's not what this is saying at all. If that was an understanding of this, there would be no fifth and rd, there would be no science of how euthanizing because everything would just be subjective, whatever you want it to be, just make it up.

01:04:27--> 01:04:30

So in summary, there are a few things we learn from this.

01:04:31--> 01:05:00

The first thing we learn is how the Sahaba were keen to ask beautiful questions. Their questions were broad, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi. wasallam also gave them broad answers, answers that gave them guidelines on how to live their life. The Prophet said aloud while he was sitting telling the Sahaba to use their heart as a measuring stick was a reminder to them that they can only use that as a measuring stick if the stick wasn't broken. If the sticks broken, you

01:05:00--> 01:05:35

can't measure with it anymore. You have to make sure that stick the sound and safe protected. Right? A gun is only a gun, if it's not rusted if it hasn't broken if it's if it has, the pieces haven't melted. But if the pieces are melted, you can say it was a gun. But can you fire a bullet now, it can't fire them, I can't fire a bullet anymore. You have to make sure that that is functional in order for it to do its job. This Hadeeth once again teaches us the importance of preserving the heart. If you preserve your heart, you'll have proper perspective. And when you have proper perspective, your heart will always guide you to that which is right. And that which is desirable to

01:05:35--> 01:05:43

Allah subhana wa Tada. Actually, there's one last point that I had as a part of my discussion. I won't take long. Just one quick point. And I'll close with this.

01:05:44--> 01:06:29

There's an issue that comes up. Some people they say that it's actually a continuation of what I just briefly said, but it has a theological touch to it as well. There have been people in the past who have made claims that what the heart is inspired with supersedes revelation. It supersedes why this is an argument some people have made. This statement was never accepted by the understandable Gemma. Because according to the pseudonym and Gemma in her which means inspiration, and what he means, which means revelation. Their claim is inspiration supersedes revelation. So if a heart is inspired with something, you will then act upon what you're inspired with, and you will not act upon

01:06:30--> 01:06:50

revelation. They quote this statement and they actually make reference to, for example, the story of Hobbit and how what he was told to do was inspiration in lusardi, cinemas off revelation, but Masonic cinema was told to obey Him. So they build this argument and they present the issue. Now there are many answers to every claim made under this under the banner of this issue or this claim.

01:06:51--> 01:07:38

But all in order to save time, I just want to summarize and give you the answer that assume melodrama have never accepted this premise. We say that what he is Revelation. Revelation is poetry. It's definitive. Inspiration is one knee. It's not definitive. It's something that's flimsy, it's weak. What you view as inspiration, you might view it to be one thing, it may be something else, you saw a dream, you thought it meant something, and may have meant something else. So inspiration can never be weighed in front of Revelation. Revelation isn't a whole different league itself. And when your heart tells you to do something against revelation, your heart needs spiritual surgery. Your

01:07:38--> 01:08:21

heart needs spiritual rehab, your heart needs spiritual guidance. And if it's very hard for you to accept that much right there, that I could actually be wrong, and that I actually am wrong in front of Revelation. If your heart is struggling with that, then you actually need code read. Like it's on the verge of dying. Do whatever you can and save your heart before it's gone. Because at that point, your heart will only take you to sin. It will only take you to sin and that's what shaytaan is trying to do. He's just trying to change your perspective. So you lose perspective of what's right and become inclined to what's wrong. And Allah subhana wa tada is trying to Allahumma Habibi, Nina

01:08:21--> 01:08:48

Eamon was a Unicode obeah Oh a lot of make this Deen beloved to us and make it beautified in our heart. Well, Korea a little coup for our for Suhana, Seon and Oh Allah, make this obedience. Yala. Make transgression make disbelief dislike to us, which I love in Washington or law makers from those that are successful. I mean, I mean, I mean, monogamy was sort of long white acid, I'm humbled a ceremony with a light on overcast.
