You're listening to the Paloma Institute Podcast Series Ramadan reflections by Mufti Hussein Kimani?

00:00:07--> 00:00:16

Find us on [email protected] slash column Institute spelar Hello human hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah dockerfiles Ramadan Eva

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

sanada. So you did receive a Hartman MBA early last year wasabi Hill.

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

Yesterday in our reflection we talked about

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

the importance of repenting to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the middle 10 days of Ramadan

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

and how today we just prayed our 15th Robic prayer. And technically we've passed the half point now from here onwards of Ramadan, and we should value the moments that we have.

00:00:46--> 00:01:13

However, one very important part of making vlogs Allah subhanho wa Taala is that when you make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala, you must make sure that when you're making a lot of Allah when you're repenting to Allah, you actually mean you really, really mean it sincerely. And we talked about this earlier in Ramadan, that how many times when we make the lotto Allah, it's just words. Sometimes when you do the could it's just words and there's nothing, there's no way to those words

00:01:15--> 00:01:51

are you find narrations in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that when you make dua, make dua like the one who is drowning. Because the one that's drowning, he doesn't just say I need help. He Guys, please, I need help right now, please. That's not how it says. When a person is drowning, when designed for his life, how does he say he screams it, he really, really really means it. So he when he wants help, he really means that helped him and he's crying, not only from his eyes, but also his heart, and he'll do whatever he whatever it whatever he whatever is desired of him so he can get that help. So when we make to Allah subhanho wa Taala, we should be

00:01:51--> 00:02:29

present completely. And one thing that I wanted to highlight in today's Today's reflection and I wanted to base more or less, the greater part of the reflection today of this is learning to cry in front of Allah subhana wa Donna, in Milan, where we're making money to us, we should always try to learn to cry in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala during our loss, and one of the reasons why we find it hard to cry in front of Allah is because we can't really reflect on what we're doing. When we praised Allah subhanho wa Taala if we actually knew the one we were praising, trust me tears have come out of our eyes. When you read the Quran today when we were reading in the throwaway prayer,

00:02:29--> 00:03:03

all these stories and how Allah subhana wa tada he shows that the entire nation was against their Prophet, you know, loss of Hannah Montana saved his prophet and destroyed the nation. And we read regarding moosari saddam and how and how they came to fit on and how fit on and loose it is. And I went back and forth and they had this large debate, this grand debate and they went back and forth and moosari Sam, he brings his miracles and it's so beautiful because when we read this, we get a little glimpse of what the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala actually is how great Allah subhanho wa Taala is, nothing restricts Allah, nothing limits Allah there is no power that can actually even

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

claim to have power in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala if Allah subhanho wa Taala wishes there is no one in the room who can lay a finger against you and it allows origin says in the Quran, Allah Allah in control meaning you will always be on top you will always be on top as long as you are true believers. And Allah subhanho wa Taala when he talks about true believers, we're going to read this tomorrow in sha Allah, Allah azza wa jal actually read this already. We already read this. Allah subhana wa tada when he talks about true believers Allah subhana wa tada says the true believers are those that when they hear the name of Allah, their hearts tremble. This is something our nation has

00:03:39--> 00:04:15

forgotten to do. to cry in front of Allah subhana wa Tada. We cry for everything. When we lose our job we cry when we have bad grades we cry if someone says something bad to us we cry. It seems as if everyone's words or every single incident that takes place in our life can have an impact on our heart, other than Allah subhanho wa Taala entity, their religion the deen the prophets that allamani was to them. These things can have an impact on our life. You know if we knew what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually went through? Well it by hearing his name every single time tears come out of our eyes. What the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually went through and

00:04:15--> 00:04:52

the prophets of Allah Wa Dae was sent him was the most Beloved of Allah subhanho wa Taala secretion. Allah subhanho wa Taala takes an oath by him by saying in Necronomicon mercerie allows witches taking oath by him, he loves him so much, yet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he's born Subhan Allah, he's born without a father. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was being born, when Amina was delivering the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam there's a narration that of the middle of his grandfather was holding on to the Goblin who's making the law to Allah and His law to Allah subhanho wa Taala was Oh Allah give my son Abdullah a son, so his lineage can continue on.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

If he has a daughter, his lineage will continue. Little did he know that his son actually had the best of all sons sort of law

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

The prophets that Allah Subhana Allah He was born to think about this for a second. I reflect over this. When the prophets that a lot he was seven was born.

00:05:09--> 00:05:42

He was he was lying next to Amina his mother just after birth, and he was clean and he was doing he was already circumcised, there was no filth on his body, he was clean. And the Prophet said a lot of sons lying next to his mother. And then he rolls over his shoulder, and he puts his hands on the ground and it says in front of Allah Subhana, WA Tada. And even Cassia says, After he does says that, he then pushes his hands off the ground, and points his finger towards the sky. And there's a new that spreads in the sky. Right? It was as if the angels came to greet the prophets have a long audience, and that is such a great personality. And the purpose of allowing audio was suddenly at

00:05:42--> 00:06:16

the age of six. What the six year old kid, a six year old kid has nothing can barely run and can barely talk barely can put some sentences together. a six year old kid, he's sitting with his mother and his mother is always talking about his father that your father was this Your father was that he was a great man. And which child wouldn't want to grow up with a father by his side? I mean, which prophet wouldn't want to grow up with the entire world hating him while having a father on his side and make life so much more easier, right? And here, his mother is always talking about the father and he says to his mother, that Mom, you keep talking about Dad, let's go visit him. And she takes

00:06:16--> 00:06:50

her son all the way to Madina munawwara to visit the grave of his father. And when they after the visit the father in that area there after the visit the father, she spent some time with her family, and then when she's returning somehow to law, she becomes ill. And it's interesting. It's because from Medina MANOVA maka, maka, Rama It was a three stop journey you make once one stopover, second stopover third stopover and she passed away somewhere in the middle of the first stopover. And Allah subhana wa took her life not after she returned to Medina, not after she returned to Makkah. So there was there'll be an uncle, their grandfather did call the process that a lot of them down some

00:06:50--> 00:07:23

RV there who would come and give him a hug. It was only the purpose that allowed him his mother and a man his slave, right, who he adopt who he adopted who he inherited from his father. And where did she pass away, she passed away and a bla bla is an empty place. There's nothing there. It's you know, he's in the he's in the middle of nowhere. And he sees that his mother all of a sudden has gone sick, and she's struggling and she's on the ground, she can't move anywhere. And the purpose of the law, it was Adams in so much shock. You know, Omar even said that he was holding his mother's hand while his mother wasn't the last pieces of her life, and he just wouldn't let go. And his

00:07:23--> 00:07:57

mother couldn't say anything to him. And then finally, her mother, his mother, she said to him, the final word she said to her son, she said to her son, that every single person that is young will one day become old. Every new thing will become old one day. And then she says to her mother, and don't forget, she says to her son, that don't fear what I'm leaving you behind you will be a guidance for the entire world in Sharla. And with that she passes away and only a man says that after the purpose that allowed his son's mother passed away. He went to the grave and he hugged his mother's grave and you wouldn't move from there. He wouldn't move from there. And only I even had to literally drag him

00:07:57--> 00:08:29

away from the mother's grave. And he kept saying to his mother, you left me so early. And think about this. Imagine what the prophet said a lot of sentiment through. You know, his mother was his brother. His mother was a sister. His mother was his father. His mother was his mother. His mother was his friend. His mother was his teacher. His mother was the one who took care of him his mother was everything. And she in a snap just like that she was gone. The prophets that allowed it was said um, just a few months before he passed away, he performed his final hudge and when he was going for the Hajj, he stopped by Allah, where the where his mother was buried, and he told us that we will

00:08:29--> 00:09:02

camp here for the night. And this hava dimensioned the prophets that alone while he was at him sat by his mother's grave the entire night. And he cried and cried and cried in remembrance of his mother. You know what the prophets have a lot to sort of go through. This is just him at six years of age. We can't even imagine what the prophets that allow this gentleman to do his entire life yet when we hear his name, it just passes past it just goes right over us. It doesn't mean anything it just doesn't even stop doesn't resonate. Doesn't we don't have any honor said a lot of audio system is outside the picture who's gonna say that these days right? And it doesn't mean anything to us. If

00:09:02--> 00:09:40

we want to learn to cry in front of a law we really have to learn to reflect right now. This is the time where we need to learn to make our laws be accepted by Allah subhana wa Tada. Well, law he This is a time that's so important for our dogs to be accepted. We can raise all the money we want for the orphans of the world, but there is nothing that can compare to a sincere Dahomey for them. All these oppressors in the world they can all be washed away by a simple sincere draw me to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is the time that we need to reflect and learn who ally is who we are in front of Allah subhana wa tada and learn to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala like one does while he's

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

drowning. In the final moments of his life, this is how we need to learn to make what Allah subhana wa Tada. You know, we know of the young kids that are suffering in Syria right now, what they're going through, you know, hundreds of 1000s of them have been removed from their homes. You know, just the other day we saw the picture, the hotter than when either the Allahu and the conqueror of Damascus.

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

His machine is covered was made sure he destroyed this a few days ago. If there's any time that we need to learn to make law, it's right now, this month of Ramadan is an opportunity for us to make the Lord Allah subhana wa tada but we need to learn to cry in front of Allah insincerely mc da the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while describing the virtue of crying he says that a lot of money was sentimental honey doesn't didn't mean that the eye that cries out of the fear of Allah will never enter into the fire of hell. So hon Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that there are two eyes, that the fire of hell will never be able to touch them. The first iron

00:10:38--> 00:11:12

bucket Mashallah the eye that cries out of the fear of a lot, and the second eye is the eye that stays awake the entire night guarding the Muslims while they sleep behind us narrated by mom didn't we didn't have to lie on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that there is nothing that is more beloved to Allah than to tears to drops. The first drop is the drop of cheer that comes out of the eye. When a person realizes how low he is in front of the greatness of Allah subhana wa Tada. You know, the more you think about the greatness of a love, the more you realize how small you are, you know, the more the world abandons you, you know, when your friends leave you, your wife leaves

00:11:12--> 00:11:46

you, your children leave you, you know, the people in the road only leave you more. That's when you actually realize how small you actually are. Then it helps you realize how great Allah subhanho wa Taala is. When you have so many people around you, you forget to realize how small you are you begin to think you're a strength, the prophets of Allah Almighty when someone says the second drop that Allah loves abundantly is the is the drop that comes out of the body while fighting in the path of Allah subhana wa Tada. And then the purpose of the law he was said I'm in the same house he continued on missing out on and the two marks that Allah loves abundantly, the first

00:11:47--> 00:12:17

piece of vitola It's a mark that hits the body that comes on the body because while one is fighting in the path of Allah, and the second one will be free the three minute five and the second mark that Allah loves, which comes on the body while one is performing an obligation. You know how people when they do such that they leave a mark on their forehead, Allah subhana wa tada loves that, or while someone's doing Hajj, he has a bruise or he has a mark some scars some kind of wound on him. Allah subhanaw taala loves that abundantly. The Hadith is narrated by him. I'm kilometer amatola, YALI in the very famous narration of Bosnian Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us of

00:12:17--> 00:12:39

seven categories of people who will be given a place in the shade of the throne of Alon the Day of Judgment. And who are the seven Imam an audio adjust ruler, sharpen Nasha theory about the delay as a young man who spent his youth worshipping Allah everyone worships alone when they become old. It's about spending their youth when you worship Allah subhana wa tada what are called to whom Allah can be massaged, and the person whose heart is attached to that.

00:12:41--> 00:13:14

It's not much massage at all of the houses of Allah. He's attached to all the massages anywhere he goes, he finds the ledger, he's right inside. And there are two people who love each other for the sake of Allah. And a person who has been called towards Zina, every cause of sin has in front of him, every pathway in his inner has been opened up, no one is watching him, he can easily commit sin. But what happens is he remembers, and he says in near half of law, I fear a lot. If I do this today, what's going to happen to me in front of him on the Day of Judgment, and the purpose of a lot of them says the sixth person who will be given that shade, what are they going to be sakata aha,

00:13:14--> 00:13:28

the person who gives up apart and he conceals it, until the point where his left hand does not know of the charity that his right hand gave. And the last person in the province that allowed his own set of law was Roger de la Kalyan, the one who remembered a law while he was alone.

00:13:30--> 00:14:10

He was alone. No one was there. It was just him at a law intimate moment and he was alone for far that I know. And his eyes begin to roll with tears. So let's learn to cry in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala of loving I'm going to be a long one he used to say Subhanallah that I would rather drop one tear for my eye for the sake of Allah than give 1000 golden coins in South Africa. In my eyes, one champion of Allah has more value than 1000 1000 Alpha dinner, dinner, dinner Medina two different things. The now 1000 golden coins for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The Companions they describe the crying of the prophets that allamani with some of the loving God alone one very

00:14:10--> 00:14:45

famous narration. The Hadith isn't without an essay. He says the Prophet one day I came to the Prophet said a lot while he was in him. And when I came to the Prophet said a lot he said and he was in prayer, and he was crying so much in his Salah. He was crying so much in his Salah that it sounded like there was a kettle cooking with water inside the that was boiling. You know when the water boils and noise, that's how much the prophets of Allah Juan he was Adam was crying in his prayer. And then we have the very famous narration of the prophets of the LA Mata he was sent him he read the verse of the Quran into active homes in Ladakh, when Davila antonacci is rockin. He read

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

the verse of the Quran which Allah subhanho wa Taala says Italia Salaam said to Allah, Allah if you punish these people, then they are your servant. And if you forgive them, then you are most honorable and you are most wise it's up to you. You can punish them or you can forgive them

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

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he read this ayah for today he will call Allahumma to Mati. As soon as you read this ayah he raised his hands and he started crying and saying, oh, alarm oma, oh, alarm oma. None of them can go to the fire level I can't stand that how could they go to the fire? Oh mighty mighty. Baka Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam faqad as he believed Isabella Muhammad, Allah azza wa jal sees the prophets that a lot of sudden crying and he says go to Mohammed and asked him why is he cried? And he slams into the Messenger of Allah, why are you crying? The prophets that alone while he was sad, I'm sad that I'm crying because of my concern for

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

my coma.

00:15:37--> 00:15:58

You know, he put himself to sleep in tears because of crying for us. And today we can shed a single tear for the purpose that alone isn't. We have to really ask ourselves, where is the affair gone? Where's that? Where's the honor gone? Where's that trust gone that we had with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he loves so much yet we care less about the profits that long it was that I'm in the team.

00:15:59--> 00:16:36

And then God said I'm sick of the profits in the long run do something alasa which says that in us and the coffee and medical analysis that we will please you in regards to your own mind we will cause you no pain. And in the process that allow it was said and said if that is the case, then I will not enter into agenda into every person from oma enters into Jennifer's, Allahu Akbar. We also need to learn to cry in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala card for ourselves or for our family, cry for the incredible things we just need to learn to reflect. have an affair with your loved one when he would come to the grave. He would cry and cry and cry kind of money now. lokala COVID and Baka

00:16:36--> 00:16:43

Bella. He would cry so much until his entire beard would get soaked in tears. For even though who does guru Jenna when

00:16:44--> 00:16:56

people talk to you about the fire of hell and and paradise and you don't cry? Why do you cry in front of the grave? And that was one that I thought of the loved one said for I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying in the covenant Oh what a man's in and

00:16:57--> 00:17:32

I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying the grave is the first of many stops in the hereafter. And then he said, the purpose of the lesson set for in the gentleman who fell about a sermon. And if he is successful from the grave, then everything after the grave is easy. And he said what he mean and if he is not successful in the grave, from about the who shall remain the whatever comes after the grave is going to be very, very hard. And the promise of allamani was seldom said that there is nothing that is more difficult that I have seen on a person, then what will happen to a person in the grave. Such a difficult time that we will go through we should learn to cry in front

00:17:32--> 00:18:07

of a lot. You know next time you go to the graveyard to bury someone or you go to visit a loved one. I want you to just walk past the graveyard and look at the different plates and different names that are there. I promised you the people that are buried in the graveyard today were the very same people who were working it job and medical jobs just a few years ago. And they had children. They had houses, they had cars. They used to play sports. They used to have these to invite people to their houses, these to go out with their friends and have cops and nice to have all this good stuff too. But what happened? What happened to them today those very same bodies are rotting away in the

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

grave. And the only thing that remains of them is a small little metal plate that has their name engraved inside there. Nothing remains from Israel. Every single thing comes to an end. kulu Manali have fun.

00:18:21--> 00:18:56

So let's use this Ramadan as an opportunity to learn to cry in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and cry together cries families, cries individuals learn to shed these tears. One time has a shift. What is the credit ontology? I think I told you guys a story, I'll share it again. After officer sulla he used to have a special gathering called Jake images. I told you guys, I didn't tell you he's to have a special gathering after also still are called JPEG images, which needs to serve to everyone. But the principle gathering was that if you were to sit in that gathering, he had one issue one principle that you couldn't talk, you would you'd be given a cup of tea and you'd have to sit there

00:18:56--> 00:19:20

silent, everyone or just sit there quiet. And if people had any private matters, they would come to the shift one by one and ask the shift for blah or get their massage or whatever it was. So it was one day sitting. And this man came with his young baby. He wanted to speak to the shift and he had his baby with him and the baby was crying. And you know how what if a baby cries in the middle of a lecture or imagine everyone's quiet and the baby's screaming loud. The father saying to the kid

00:19:21--> 00:19:52

Don't cry. She's gonna get mad. This is supposed to be a quiet time not crying time, and has a shift until it is said to the Father learned already though. Don't worry about come back in a day. He said let the kid cry. Let the kid cry. There are a few people in the world who are still crying for Allah who still cried with a few people still cry. If the baby's crying let them cry, though don't still cry anymore. We don't have any hope from them anymore. They're not going to cry in front of a lot. They're not going to cry and gatherings. You don't hear their tears anymore. I wanted to share one more incident of a dilemma and a lot of your loved one. That one day he had his head inside his

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

wife's lap and he started crying. For Kathy Marotta, who forgot to his wife

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

Also crying for God Am I have kick he said to her, why are you crying?

00:20:04--> 00:20:09

When she when he said Why are you crying? I was crying Why are you crying for a turkey?

00:20:10--> 00:20:22

She said, I saw you crying. So I thought, let me join him crying as well. So then he said, Okay, let me tell you why I was crying. Why I was crying. Let me tell you that. In either case, in either case, the court of law has a version or in our

00:20:25--> 00:20:58

attorney, Andrew Miller who am law, he said to his wife, well, you don't know why you are crying. Let me tell you what I was crying. The reason why I was crying is because I remembered the worst of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He mentioned in the Quran to the medium that every one of you will have to pass by the fire of hell, every single person will have to pass by the fire of home. He said when I pass by, I don't know if I'm going to fall inside, or stay outside the fire. And that was enough to make me cry. So let's use this from Yvonne to learn to cry in front of a loss of Hannah Montana, to shed these tears out of out of Allah subhanaw taala is love. Many people can cry, but sometimes

00:20:58--> 00:21:00

crying can also be different natures

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

underneath the first

00:21:04--> 00:21:37

one the who who unhackable upca. Underneath that verse he explains that there are different types of tears as well. He says some people they cry and WooCommerce and for our WooCommerce person will fuzz our yard will watch our sugar will bucaramanga Shatila so there are different types of primes. Some people they cry out of joy, some kind of grief, some cried a fright. You know, being frightened some cry of pain, some cry of being thankful some try to show off his people also credit show off by the way, you know that right? There are people one lady came to me. She said I was talking about the importance of prime. She's the chair I cry so much. But I want you to know I'm telling you today

00:21:37--> 00:22:08

every time I cry, I'm just showing off. I know how to cry. It's just easier for me to have this make that face in it. The tears are coming out it's easy for me to cry. So some people cry showing love as well. That's why the police in the shade of Allah stones for the person who cries while he's alone. Allah subhanaw taala gives us an ability to learn to climb the mountain and love lots of panels and make these moments spiritual moments. When Allah subhanaw taala uplifted uplift the state of the oma are going to save us from oppression by Allah help all those who are struggling and Allah help all those who are in need some kind of light behind the use of Hanukkah, llama, Shadow Allah,

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

Allah Allah and stuff

00:22:10--> 00:22:11

after Donna

00:22:12--> 00:22:14

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
