smilla Rahim al hamdu Lillah Allahu akbar wa salam ala

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

hosoe sanada. So you do sudo hotmail and via Allah Allah history I was having a look clear.

00:00:24--> 00:00:30

Yesterday we talked about the importance of law, and in particular in the last 10 days of Ramadan.

00:00:31--> 00:01:12

And today I wanted to discuss some conditions that must be met, in order for our laws to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala, which we call the shadow to the conditions of law. And at the same time, I'd like to also touch on the millennium, Java, those things that prevent the law from being accepted. So we'll cover four things that need to be done inshallah for the law to be accepted. And then we'll also discuss four things that we need to stay away from, to also have our laws accepted. The first thing and it's the most one of the most important things is that when we make law to Allah subhanahu wa tada we need to be absolutely sincere. We need to be absolutely sincere, which means

00:01:12--> 00:01:33

that we are doing this only and solely for the sake of the laws of which there is no partner for Allah subhana wa tada when we're making the law. We aren't showing off. We're not doing it to be praised by other people. We're not doing it for you know, out of, you know, just an artificial prayer that we're just raising our hands for the sake of praying. It needs to be really sincere. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran

00:01:34--> 00:02:11

well I'm gonna be will twist. Well, when would you have come in the coolie Masjid? Where the real home of Lucien Allah who didn't come up with a conclusion in this verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says that and turn your well team would you hug him in the coolmuster and establishes your face meaning turn towards Allah subhana wa tada whenever it comes time for you to pray and where the real humble Felicien in love again and invoke on to Allah call on to Allah while making the religion purely for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada and another verse Allah subhana wa tada says further Allah hum Feliciano Dean Welcome to hell capital and call on to Allah subhanho wa tada while you are

00:02:11--> 00:02:34

sincerely doing it for the sake of Allah azza wa jal. So the first thing is that when we're making, we should be sincere, that we're doing it only for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala for no one else. The second condition is that we should always follow up with good deeds. When we follow up our dogs with good deeds. Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted a lot of wisdom says in the Quran from uncanny

00:02:35--> 00:02:38

valley Amen. Amen. Sorry, when I should be

00:02:39--> 00:03:12

there whoever wishes to meet his Lord, he should do good deeds. If you want to find a loss, I want to meet a lot the day of judgment when you're meeting a lot. The thing that you need to do if you're looking forward to meet a lot, is you need to first of all ensure that we're doing good deeds. And when we're doing when we talk about good deeds, good deeds are those deeds that are in accordance to the Sharia, to the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we had this call, you know, make anything into good deeds, which means in essence, we need to avoid innovations within the faith. We need to avoid anything that's not taught by the prophets and allamani listener, making

00:03:12--> 00:03:55

sure it's fun the teachings of the prophets that allamani Listen, there's a very interesting statement quoted right we'll take him in modality Sally Keane from Philemon, I have underneath the seat of the verse The Baraka Lily via the human kohala coalition. coalition petite lady helical moto Hayato, Leah Blue masama, the one who gave who created life and death, so that he may test Leah Blue accom. So, he may test you and you can ask Rama Which one of you is best in, in good deeds. So under this he says that who will who will ask? What is the law testing you Allah is trying to see who is most sincere and who is doing the deed most properly. Two things andriani mouthless Whoo. So they

00:03:55--> 00:04:17

said oh, Father Valley, referring to fulfillment. What do you mean by the one the D that is the person that is most sincere and the person that does the deeds most properly faqad in the nama that kind of heart isn't one of your console Robin lamb you've been kind of Sullivan, William, you can hardly send them your coupon hat tycoon Hardison, O'Sullivan? Well, Han is in your corner de la Casa La Jolla coonara soon

00:04:18--> 00:04:37

so they've been out said that what it means that it must be most sincere Allah is looking for the most sincere and most appropriate. He said that when a person does a good deed, if you're sincere when doing it, but you're not doing the actual property. You're so sincere that you're crying from beginning to end a fighter Salah but you decided to be super pious and reformed God fighters Allah for

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

the sincerity was there. But what was missing?

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

the correctness of the action is missing. He said let me just Well, that's not accepted Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he said a person can be absolutely correct in his action. He's doing it the most appropriate way, no doubt to the letter. But the problem is he's lacking in sincerity. He says this is also not acceptable loss of Hannah Hart.

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

You need to make sure you're doing it sincerely for the sake of Allah and your action matches the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhana wa tada Quran may use an image of who it Allahu Allah sin for this thumbsucker we are working with power in allowing people to move and whoever submits himself for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is one who does good deeds that he has held on to or what it was a very firm chain, he's holding on to something very, very, very firm, the one who submits his face to Allah The one who submits himself to Allah and does good deeds, the scholars say for Islam and what he allows us to submit yourself to Allah means to be

00:05:38--> 00:06:16

sincere for the sake of Allah, what law and to call it a lot when you call it when you call it a lot. That's a sign of you submitting your face to Allah subhana wa tada Sophie mudaraba Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and to be excellent after that means to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The third condition of the law being accepted is that when you make a law, you must have firm belief that Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to accept your law. You can be iffy about it, that Allah may accept it allow me not accepted unless the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam allows it just says in the Quran, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is capable over everything.

00:06:17--> 00:06:53

In Allah Allah condition. Cody is capable of everything we find around Allah subhanaw taala says again and again in another shade and a hula hoop confiar Quran Allah wants something to happen. He just says Be and it happens Allah subhanaw taala is capable of everything. But when we are making dua to Allah we need to believe that Allah is capable of everything. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us in a very beautiful Hadith the footsy and are in the Vanya dB. I am to my servant as my servant thinks of me. If you think ally is incapable of fulfilling your prayers, that Allah subhana wa tada will leave the matter to you. But if you believe that Allah subhanaw

00:06:53--> 00:07:23

taala is all capable Allah subhana wa tada can do whatever he wishes, that Allah subhana wa tada will give you from his hidden treasures. So you have to believe firmly that Allah subhana wa tada is the one who gives and Allah subhanho wa Taala when he gives the are no end to the gift. There is no end to the giving of Allah subhana wa Tada. There's also an error under the very beautiful tradition that he wanted me to talk about the lion a quotes about who the Allahu wa narrated the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah ha and to move on a bit.

00:07:24--> 00:07:59

That call on to Allah subhanho wa tada while you have your deen that your law will be accepted. What is your theme mean? certainty, you know for certain that Allah subhana wa Taala is going to accept my prayer. Now, why isn't that prayer being accepted? That's one thing. That's another thing that we have to be patient of. Maybe Allah subhanho wa Taala wishes to give us something better. Maybe giving this at this moment isn't best, maybe it's better to give it at another time. Allah subhanho wa Taala is maybe saving the reward of our law for us in the hereafter. There are so many reasons why Allah subhana wa tada can hold back our results from us. Always remember that even the prophets

00:07:59--> 00:08:41

of Allah subhana wa tada had to remain patient for the loss to be accepted. jacobellis Allah made throughout the day his son Yusuf was taken away from him that his son is returned. Did he come back the same day was Yusuf Ali said I returned from the same day yes or no? The next day, that year, the next year, Yusuf Ali Salaam now was an adult, he was a man and he was now one of the leaders of Egypt. jacobellis Rahman blinder of crying to Allah subhana wa Tada. Is that true or false? He went blind. Imagine how much like I cried, how much his prophet card he went blind. He cried so much, won't be a vagina. homina doesn't raise eyes when his eyes went wide. He went blind. But he didn't

00:08:41--> 00:09:12

give up on giving a lot of making a lot of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you've already answered on he was he was ill for over 10 years of scholar See, he was in his illness for how many years? over 10 years. But Allah and he kept make into our law that the law was accepted after 10 years. So what is this that we make law for five minutes and then we say Allah didn't accept my prayer. We made law for one or two nights and we say Allah didn't accept my prayer, we should continue making the law Allah subhanaw taala. Never, ever stop. Okay. And the fourth condition of having our laws accepted, is what we call

00:09:14--> 00:09:46

well, who should refer to FEMA in the last minute, though, but Robert, to remind the homeowner that when you are making law, make sure your heart is present, and you're absolutely devoted to your law. And you are begging the law for those things that Allah subhanaw taala has kept from reward and you're seeking protection from Allah, you're afraid of all of those things that Allah subhanho wa Taala has served in the house Allah subhanaw taala has preserved in the hereafter from the punishment. So you're seeing you begging a low Allah, I don't want any of that stuff. I don't want to be punished in the hereafter. I want all the things agenda and you're sincere Your heart is

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

present when you're making it the law. If your tongue in your heart can be present at the same time, that the law has a lot of value. Allah subhana wa tada when he mentioned the cardiologist that I'm sorry, another very beautiful incident in the audience, and I wanted a son

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

Yes or no? Did he get the sun the next day?

00:10:03--> 00:10:30

Yes, no. He waited for years and years and years. And according to some scholars, he was 90 years old. How old was he? And his wife, as a parent says, well, Hakeem, she couldn't give birth to children anymore. She was past the age of giving birth. He was a past he was past the age of having children, and they were so old. But secondly, it kept making a lot of Allah kept making the law. Today, if an old man in our community, 90 years old, is making the law for children will say, but my

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

brother stuff, that's enough.

00:10:36--> 00:10:52

Maybe your soul will come up during the process or hers Will you guys should both just take it easy right now. This is the way we think. But sectarianism was so convinced in the mercy of Allah subhana wa, I'll tell you guys honestly think about this. How many people do we know in the community who the doctors are told you can have children?

00:10:53--> 00:11:32

But then Allah subhanaw taala gives them Have you guys seen that before? Yes or No. Because the law is made to Allah not to doctors. There is a sub there is a means there's a tool in the middle. It's like a little Lego, you know, just a little knife or something. And that's it. Ultimately, everything lies in the hands of Allah subhana wa Tada. And Zachary is around for years and years and years. He prayed to alignment. He had sincerity. He followed his sincerity with good actions. In the second thing that I said he followed his sincerity with good actions. He believed that Allah subhanho wa Taala was going to give him he didn't give up hope in Allah. And the fourth thing he

00:11:32--> 00:11:46

had, he had, he had this craving and desire for the good that Allah subhanaw taala had in store for him. And after he had all four of these conditions in him, Allah subhanaw taala that I gave him when he was asking for a Lhasa which was the Korea

00:11:47--> 00:11:50

Abiraterone He further one at first the debonair

00:11:53--> 00:11:54

soldier in the home can

00:11:55--> 00:12:19

you sorry Ron, I feel Hey rod. They were doing good deeds. Were the owner. robber noir Ahava they had Robert and Robert while they were asked Robert means desire and Robbins fear they desired for all the good things from align fit all the all the all the punishment of Allah subhana wa tada a lot of witnesses were congruent and aha sheen and they were fearful sevens. So we gave them from our treasures and we gave them a child even at that age, for things we need to stay away from.

00:12:21--> 00:13:02

And these four things serve as a barrier for our lobbying accepted. The first thing and we discussed this earlier, I won't go into any detail at all I just want to label it are listed for now. We have to avoid eating Haram. Drinking Haram, wearing Haram. Remember this, we talked about this earlier, I'm not going I will not go into the detail of this again. Okay? eating hot on drinking haraam or wearing heroin it serves. It's like a barrier between us and our laws of being accepted. We have narrations in this regard many of them. The second thing is to give up on doing never, ever give up on doing to always keep doing law. There's a very beautiful tradition quoted by Mahara Hola, Hola.

00:13:02--> 00:13:06

Hola. Juan says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, use the job when you

00:13:07--> 00:13:28

adjust. Your prayers will be accepted as long as you don't hurry. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said What does it mean to hurry for a fool per hour to follow Mr. jubliee to hurry means that oh to say to people or I mean while but Allah didn't accept your hurrying. Take it easy keep making the lotto low. Sometimes you go through I remember when I was a student and mother saw

00:13:29--> 00:13:51

it when I was memorizing the Quran. It took me four years to memorize the Quran. How many years you know that the average kid in my class was memorizing it in two years. We had some classmates there was one classmate who I did alum course with. And I did that with him together. Somehow the young man memorize the entire plan from beginning to end in seven months. How many months

00:13:52--> 00:14:24

and then one week later, he read the full Quran in one sitting to his teacher. Man was a genius. So I used to always envy all these other students in the mother aside, man, that guy finished in one year, that guy finished in two years. This guy finished in three years. And trust me, you know, every time there was a hips graduation, when the other students would be finishing and all the students would be gathered together to participate into the law. I used to sit at the back and cry. I used to think to myself man, I've sat these guys all sort of afternoon they're finishing before me. A his graduation was very hard to me when I was a kid I used to read the demotivate me because I

00:14:24--> 00:14:57

would see other people's finishing but I couldn't finish myself. So I went to my teacher when I was crying. And he said Why are you crying? I said Allah subhanho wa Taala was angry with me. That's why I can't finish the Quran. So my teacher said no, Allah loves you. Those guys only have the opportunity to read the Koran day and night for one year. That's it Allah Take them away out of the circle. Allah How do you back for four years, for four years of your life you just kept sitting here reading Quran day and night, day and night. He said those guys should be dying. That baby can Hafiz in 10 years, not one here. Every single thing when you look at it, there's a Beauty Inside there.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

Okay. It's just your perspective of looking at it.

00:15:00--> 00:15:30

Okay, that's that. So never give up on doing though. The third thing we have to avoid since when we engage in sins, it prevents our classroom being accepted. We should do good deeds and stay away from sins. The RV poet he says that I'm not another another Ilaha in the Quran, the carbon Thurman and sahoo in the cashville group, natural Ilaha in the coolie carbon Thurman and sahoo in the Kashmir guru for K Fernando IJA Ba da, da.

00:15:31--> 00:15:42

He says that we call it a law whatever we're in difficulty natural Illa in the Kula carbon, we call on Allah and every difficulty Thurman and Sahar in the Kashmir guru, but as soon as the difficulty is gone, what happens?

00:15:44--> 00:16:22

We forget Allah, who's Allah? Which Masjid? Which prayer? What are you talking about? He says, okay, for not a Jew ejabberd law, how do you accept your prayer to be accepted? What are the southerner 30 100 habits, the know when we have blocked the pathway of acceptance with our very own sins. And the last thing that we should be careful of, we should stay away from in terms of, you know, having our laws accepted, we should stay away from leaving those things that Allah has commanded us to do. So what this means is that in essence, we should fulfill our logic, fulfill our five the obligations that are upon us that Allah subhanaw taala has placed on us do those and then you will find the

00:16:22--> 00:16:57

mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. Okay, you have to keep going. You have to keep going. You can't give up sometimes you feel like I just can't do it. And you make the law and then you give up and then you make the law and you give up you know, we have that cycle. People they have that cycle. Marisol if you guys heard of his name, some of you guys from the Socratic method. You know, he was also a very famous poet like lemmings but he was he was a little Jeep to Mashallah he was Mashallah. He used to drink a lot. This year regarding holiday, he never used to come to the machine. One day he went to the masjid. Someone saw him. He said, Brother, you go into the machine today. What happened?

00:16:58--> 00:17:04

He said that I was drinking and we drank so much that we finished all of our bottles so there's nothing left to drink. So I thought I'd go to Allah and ask him for more.

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

But he was a very good poet, by the way.

00:17:09--> 00:17:40

I thought he was a sincere guy too. You know, when one day he said, he said um, is that a towbar Mary john, she can jam melito Michigan law so deep. He said that when I make Toba, my Toba gives me the power to break all of my, all of my beer, all of my wine alibaug aka when I make dope, I get excited I smash it. I break all the bottles. But then a little while later, john made it to Washington. Then when the bottle comes in front of me a few days later, I pick up the above I break my toe but then

00:17:41--> 00:18:15

when he was trying to see here's that there's a cycle in life, it's just a cycle in life. Sometimes you're on a high point sometimes you're on a low point, and essence, keep making a lot of a loss upon without it never ever give up. Never lose hope and Allah subhana wa Tada. Fulfill your obligation. do good deeds, stay away from the prohibited acts. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will give power and strengthen our laws that allows you to give us a trophy for the ability to use these doors for ourselves and for our own not Allah subhanaw taala except Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala it should allow you to heal and the stuff we're going to break after the honor of salaam aleikum wa

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

rahmatullah wa barakato.
