And then we seek aid and assistance into him return both in repentance and for forgiveness, to medium Allah Subhana Allah guides, none can mislead and even allow leaves to go astray there is none who can guide and I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship so the law alone and then Mohammed Salah long ready to sell them is both his servant and His Messenger.

Give that which they give those who put forward that which they put forward and their hearts are full of fear because they know their to return to their Lord. When this verse was revealed, I shall be asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam call it era civil law. vs rock Wesley West we will hum.

00:05:25--> 00:05:38

She said, O Messenger of Allah, is this verse in relation to the person who steals and commits adultery and drinks alcohol, but he fears Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:40--> 00:05:59

believed or understood that this verse or thought that this verse meant that the reason their heart was shaking in fear was because they've committed sins, and they're going to stand in front of a law. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to her coronaria

00:06:00--> 00:06:05

he said no old Chaucer of the truthfulness. She said well,

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

and love usefully we assume.

00:06:11--> 00:06:23

He said, No, rather this verse is about the one who prays and fasts and give charity gives charity. And Allah subhanaw taala then revealed the next verse, will you serve your own

00:06:25--> 00:06:43

homeless? These are the people who do a great amount who competes to do a great amount of good deeds, and they are the foremost and doing good. Why are these people's hearts shaking in fear? Is just confusion comes because Allah says what

00:06:44--> 00:07:35

their heart is shaking and fear. Why is the heart shaking in fear? It's because we're afraid that even though they have been praying, and fasting, and giving surety that Allah will not accept these deeds. Even though they've done all of this good. They are afraid that their deeds are worthless, and afraid that his deeds are missing the most important ingredient required, which is the last sincerity and purification of intention. And so in today's chutzpah and the time that we have remaining, we will discuss the concept of a clause of sincerity and what it means and why it is important. Last is to direct your statements and your actions and your worship and your life all to

00:07:35--> 00:08:16

a loss of Hannah water Allah and to nothing other than Allah azza wa jal, it means that your intention and everything that you do, your statements, your actions, your life, your death, your prayer, your fasting, everything you do in secret and in public. You do it for one reason and for one goal, and that is the goal of a loss of Hannah, what's a highlight? any action big or small, is done with the intent of seeking the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala, seeking the pleasure of your Lord and creator and the scholars give a variety of definitions for your floss. Some of them describe it as in no simply being a law.

00:08:17--> 00:08:25

That it consists of a secret it is a secret between the servants and between Allah subhanho wa Taala. They

00:08:28--> 00:08:52

know Angel has knowledge of it to record its word you the devils have knowledge of it, to corrupt it, that this is an intimate relationship between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala your intention is simply something between you and your Creator. And some of the scholars when they described sincerity, they call it they called it or described it as this

00:08:53--> 00:08:56

fella in love that you

00:08:58--> 00:09:04

forgets the sight of the creation and all that you witness is the creator.

00:09:05--> 00:09:28

And what they mean is that the person who is truly sincere, they could be in an ocean of people, but they don't see the people all they see is Allah subhana wa Tada. A person can be unhedged, literally surrounded by millions of people, but if they're sincere, they really don't care about all the people around them. All they care about is Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:09:30--> 00:09:38

And they also describe the loss as the lack of a need, that anyone else sees you're good.

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

You don't feel a need that people see you praying. You don't feel a need that people know that you gave. You don't feel a need that people know that you're fasting. That having this need means the person does not have sincerity, but when they don't need anyone to witness their deeds, and a law is sufficient for it.

00:10:00--> 00:10:27

witness for them. This is the sign of someone having sincerity. And because of this sincerity is a foundational action of the hearts and the acts of our hearts are required, so that the acts of our limbs are accepted. The actions that we do with our limbs require the hearts to have a sincere intention for Allah subhanaw taala to accept it. And this is why some scholars call this loss

00:10:29--> 00:11:00

ylonen they call it the soul of the deed and the action because the action that has little sincerity is dead, is worthless is like a body that has no soul. And many people think or understand that what we need sincerity when we worship a law, we need sincerity when we pray, we need sincerity when we fast. We need sincerity when we give charity. But the reality and what they don't realize is that we need sincerity even beyond ibadah

00:11:01--> 00:11:14

we need sincerity, even in the customary actions of our life. We need sincerity when we eat food. We need sincerity when we sleep. When we get married when we go to work.

00:11:15--> 00:11:37

When we buy and sell when we play sports, all of these actions require us loss. People think I understand having a loss in my prayer. But what do you mean that I have to have this loss in my customs and the actions I do in my daily life. But Allah subhana wa tells you it was Suki

00:11:40--> 00:11:42

Allah say that, indeed my

00:11:43--> 00:11:45

inner solidarity

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

with

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

my mother, my prayer, my sacrifice,

00:11:51--> 00:12:28

but unlock continues and he says, Hey, I want my living, and my death. All of it belongs to a law. So you're living how you live your life. All of it needs to belong to a law. All of it needs to be sincere for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. When you're at work, when you're at school, when you're raising your children, when you're choosing what to wear, what to eat, what to drink, when to sleep. All of this requires sincerity. Every single thing you do needs to be for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala if I sleep it's with the intention

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

to wake up and to pray into the intention of giving my body its rights. I recognizing the sensuality of my religion and my belief in Allah subhanaw taala even in my decision to sleep, when I eat, I'm eating with an intention of eating. I'm eating with the intention of nourishing my body for the sake of a law so that I can do it. So I can take care of my family. Every act we do in this life must be for a law.

00:13:02--> 00:13:03

He says.

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

He

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

says

00:13:12--> 00:13:28

he said every breath that the man take that a person takes and every drop of sweat that emerges in this life, not for the sake of a law will emerge on the day of judgment as a source of regret and sorrow.

00:13:29--> 00:13:33

Every breath we take needs to be for a lot as origin. One now only

00:13:36--> 00:13:48

one says they were not commanded to do anything except to worship Allah with sincerity entirely. Allah says in the ends and they can keep tabs.

00:13:49--> 00:14:21

Founded in the most recent Odeon, Allah says we sent down the book to you in truth, so worship Allah being sincere in your devotion to him. And because of this, when Allah subhana wa tada discusses the prophets and the messengers he mentions their sincerity in our house now on behalf of them. Allah says we purified them with sincerity and remembrance of the hereafter. When Allah mentions Yusuf and is being protected and saved from the evil sin, Allah subhanaw taala says karateka

00:14:24--> 00:14:46

in lone sin, our says such as how we saved him from the evil and shameful deed, indeed, he was of our most sincere sleeves. And so sincerity Slee sincerity saves the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala from dreadful and terrible sins and evil and morality, and Allah subhanaw taala

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

when he mentions, shape one, and shape Vaughn's intent to misguide humanity, he mentions the words of shavon when he says calling a phobia, zeti killer

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

We know

00:15:02--> 00:15:09

that a fine takes an oath by a law he says by your mind's eye on this guide all of them in

00:15:13--> 00:15:41

except your servants amongst them who are sincere. Even shavon knows that he is incapable of dealing with a servant of a law who has sincerity. And one of the greatest sutras in our Qur'an which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called fulfilled. He called it a third of the Quran, soon after this loss, and it's what do you recite swiftness loss, the word is lost does not emerge.

00:15:44--> 00:15:45

He has a lot of the one.

00:15:46--> 00:15:58

If you understood this phrase, that the only entity, the one who was worthy of your worship, the one who is worthy of your sacrifice, there is no reason

00:16:00--> 00:16:14

and nothing else in this earth in this life. No other possible reason for you to direct your worship and you're sacrificing your effort and your blood and your sweat other than the one Allah Subhana Allah Tada.

00:16:15--> 00:16:19

If you understood this, one phrase, in the Quran,

00:16:21--> 00:16:32

the prophet called this one sutra, the third of the Quran, you understand this one phrase, and you've understood sincerity. And we see also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he mentions

00:16:33--> 00:16:42

in his famous Hadith, seven people, Allah will give them shade on the day when there's no shade, but his shade. Look at how often intention

00:16:43--> 00:16:50

and sincerity comes into play. In many of these categories, the Prophet says, elbow

00:16:52--> 00:17:08

was hurt is attached to the masjid. This heart This is a sincerity of the hearts of the prophets in the long run, he will send themselves His heart is sincerely in love with the masjid. Allah give some shade on the Day of Judgment. What did you learn to help us to learn? And so my

00:17:10--> 00:17:27

two people love each other for the sake of Allah, they come together and they depart on that basis. Again, the love in their hearts. This is the sincerity of the heart. Who knows if you really love someone for the sake of alar, not only the person who has that love in their heart, and the Prophet mentions it

00:17:33--> 00:17:44

to Fukushima, the Prophet says the man who gives for the sake of a lot, but he hides what he gives. So much so that the right hand does not know what the left hand has given.

00:17:46--> 00:17:52

And this is sincerity. The man hides his deeds because he's sincere for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:17:55--> 00:18:21

For photo Dinah, and a man who remembers Allah in seclusion, and shed tears, again, the prophet described sincerity worshiping a law when no one sees you feeling no need for anyone else to see your shipping Alonso agenda. And so central to our religion is the concept of the sincerity and then came to the Prophet so long, why don't you send him? He said, our children,

00:18:22--> 00:18:28

Rosa, Tennyson, Angela Vickery. He said, I listened to a lot. What do you think of a man who fights

00:18:30--> 00:19:01

on the battlefield and he intends reward and intense remembrance. He wants reward, and this could possibly mean reward from a lot. But he also intends the people to remember him to know him to talk about him. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Carla, Lisa who she then has nothing, because this is intentional is not pure for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why Allah azza wa jal in the Quran.

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

He says in the Jana

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

Nina belong

00:19:07--> 00:19:18

X and Y Amina, Allah says we made all that is in the spirit of a test for them. Why doesn't want to test us in this world? to see which of them will be

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

best in their deeds, and even configured makes it very clear. Notice Allah says, Allah wants to test to see who is the best in their actions, not Who is the most in their actions. A lot did not say a thermometer, he said as an amateur. And the best actions are the actions that have sincerity. The actions that are truly connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And one of the most powerful Hadith where a man

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

said that he came to a house where people were gathered, and then this house and then was giving a speech. So he asked who was

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

This man, and they said he is.

00:20:05--> 00:20:30

The man said, I waited until everyone left. He finished his speech and everyone left. And I went up to Iran. And I said to him, tell me something. You heard from Russell, the last blog where he was sending them. He said, so I was worried. I said to me, I will tell you a hadith I heard from the Messenger of Allah. But then he began to sob and to cry.

00:20:32--> 00:20:48

And then when he stopped crying, he said, I will tell you a hadith I heard from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no one between me and him, meaning I heard directly from the Messenger of Allah. But then I began to cry again.

00:20:49--> 00:21:18

And then when he stopped crying, he said to him, I will tell you a hadith I heard from the Messenger of Allah, Allah when he was sending them in this house, and there was no one here, other than me and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but then he began to cry again. And he cried so much, the man said that he began to lean over, almost to collapse on the ground, and I had to support him

00:21:19--> 00:22:00

until he stopped crying. And he said to me, I will tell you a hadith I heard from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in this house, and no one was here other than me and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to him, the prophets are low, and he was in them said, on the day of judgment, Allah Subhana Allah will descend upon His servants, and they will be all kneeling. Every oma will be kneeling. And Allah subhanaw taala will call forward three people, Roger and Gemma

00:22:01--> 00:22:04

and then was memorized and understood the Quran

00:22:07--> 00:22:21

kushida Rafi, Sabina Allah and a man who was killed for the sake of Allah, wa Jeannine keffi, old man and a man who had a lot of wealth. And Allah will ask the first of them the one who memorize the Quran? And then

00:22:23--> 00:22:24

answer.

00:22:26--> 00:23:17

Allah will say, Tim did not teach you what I revealed to my Prophet, the men will say yes, alone, we'll see what did you do with what I taught you? And the men will say, I memorize the Quran, and I recited it, and I taught it. And a lot of will say, Kevin, alone will say you have lied. And the angels will say you have lied. And they will say rather you did this, so that people can say, he has memorized the Quran, or he has recited the Quran. And it has been said, and then Allah will bring forward the next men and say to him, didn't I make this world easy for you? Didn't I give you from this world? And the man will say yes. And allow was tell him what did you do with what I gave you?

00:23:18--> 00:23:22

And the man will say I gave for the sake of Allah, and they gave a gave and I gave.

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

And Allah will say cannabis was

00:23:28--> 00:23:42

allowed to say you have lied, and the angels will say you have lied. And they say, rather you gave so that people can say so and so has given and so and so is generous. And then allow will bring the next person forward.

00:23:44--> 00:23:45

And He will say to him,

00:23:47--> 00:23:48

I'll say to him,

00:23:51--> 00:24:10

why were you killed? And the man will say I was killed fighting for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And Allah will say, you have lied, and the angels will say you have lied, rather, you fought and were killed, so that people would say, look at this man, and look at how courageous he is. And then I

00:24:12--> 00:24:20

said, admin, the prophet hits me on my knee. And he said to me, quite a bit later on.

00:24:24--> 00:24:26

To say I will be human. Now we all know

00:24:27--> 00:24:29

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him,

00:24:30--> 00:24:44

these people will be the first people who will be inflamed in the fire on the day of judgments. The first people entered into the Hellfire is not the adults.

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

It is not the murder. It is not the one who drinks it's not the one who was even abusive to their parents. No, it's the one who memorize the code and the one who gave charity, the one oh Fox as a warrior, yet they're out

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

actions were not meant for a law. And they intended with it something else. Their sincerity was deeply corrupted. They wanted the people, they wanted the praise of the people, they centered their life around people and not around a law. A law said what you wanted from the people has already taken place. And the profit so long running usnm said, Man, seminar, seminar, seminar, lovely woman you are in your in that will be whoever wishes their deeds to be publicized a lot or publicize them, meaning a law will publicize their sins, and whoever wants to make a hypocritical display of their deeds than a law will make a display of them. Mail must have to either protect us from that. And

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

yet,

00:25:52--> 00:26:42

it will say me I mentioned in the famous Hadith, of the prostitute who sees a dog that is dying of thirst. And so she goes down and gets water and gives that water to the dog and the dog's life is saved because of the actions of that prostitute. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a law forgave her because of that. And they've been seeing me have comments on this Hadeeth. And he says the reason a law forgave her is because of the magnitude and purity of her intention. Even though the action was simple and small, and her sins were so much ALLAH forgive all of those sins, because of how pure her intentions were, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And so the evil

00:26:42--> 00:26:58

intention can corrupt a lifetime of reciting code and are given for the sake of a law but the pure intention can save a lifetime of evil sins, for asking Allah subhanaw taala to purify our intentions and to forgive our sins for our protocol.

00:27:00--> 00:27:01

In order for him

00:27:08--> 00:27:09

now,

00:27:12--> 00:27:15

he also he probably shot somebody recently.

00:27:18--> 00:27:29

We need to realize especially in this day and age that sincerity is incredibly difficult. But there's a beautiful a an operand, Allah Subhana Allah says, when

00:27:31--> 00:27:32

you speak only Matthew

00:27:34--> 00:28:25

lemon and Holly from Saudi Arabia, but it also gives us a parable. He says indeed, in the castle, there is a lesson for you, we give you to drink from between its belly from a from its valleys from between the extra the extra minutes, and the blood emerges pure milk. And so Allah Subhana Allah gives us the purest, most nourishing drink the drink of milk, it comes from the cow, it comes from between two very corrupt, impure things, which is the blood of the cow and the excrement of the cow in between it emerges this pure milk. And this is an example for us to realize, even despite corruption, even despite how bad society might become, it's not an excuse for us to not be sincere

00:28:25--> 00:28:46

in our intention for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala no matter what corruption is around us, and so we cannot excuse the time or the place that we live for us to not be truly sincere to a loss of habitat Allah we might make mistakes but our sincerity should always be clean and purified for the sake of a lot of soldiers in our meta

00:28:51--> 00:28:51

analyses you know

00:28:53--> 00:28:55

alongside the Allah Mohammed a medical doctor

00:29:07--> 00:29:07
