This Du’a is so important, so meaningful that it came to the Prophet in a dream and he said to his companions: Learn it and then teach it to others

O Allah! I ask of you the doing of the good deeds, avoiding the evil deeds, loving the poor, and that You forgive me, and have mercy upon me. And when You have willed a trial upon the people, then take me without suffering the trial. And I ask You for Your love, the love of whomever You love, and the of the deeds that bring one nearer to Your love.

Allaahumma ‘innee as’aluka fi’lal-khayraat wa tarkal-munkaraat wa hubbal-masaakeen wa an taghfara lee wa tarhamanee wa ithaa aradta biqawmin fitnatan fatawaffanee ghayra maftoon, wa as’aluka hubbaka wa hubba man yuhibbuka wa hubba ‘amalin yuqarribunee ilaa hubbik

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh thank you for joining us for another episode of prophetic drop. Today we're going to talk about a really powerful one that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam not only commands us to learn it but to teach it to others. This is how powerful it is. The prophets of the law where you send them such as companions that he had a dream, and in this dream, he heard a voice. The voice said to him, yeah, Mohamed, put it to smell will sell tapa or Mohammed speak and you will be listened to speak and you will be heard and asked and you will be given the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, so I said, and he mentioned that, that he asks for imagine the

00:00:44--> 00:01:25

prophet of Islam is being told by Allah azza wa jal to ask for something the dreams of the prophets are truth. And so he is here to ask a loss penalty Allah What does he asked him for? He says, allow money in ESL, okay, fairly high right? Or a lot I asked you the ability to do good, what's our common karate and to abandon that which is evil, what have been Misaki and to love the poor, when takfiri What are how many and that you forgive me and show me mercy? Without to be rebuilt the capital attend photofinishing in economics doing and that if you intend a fitna a trial on your servants, then take my life without me being tested, along with India's Luca harbeck Herberman you

00:01:25--> 00:02:04

handbook or harbeth. Ben, you bet Likoni him back all I asked for your love, and the love of those who you love, and the love of anything that allows me to attain your love. This is such a powerful, comprehensive, one of the most comprehensive area of the prophets of the law, where do you send them and to this, the prophets on the lower areas and then commanded his companions, he says, Do suha Allah Maha he says, study this to AI, and then teach it to others. And it shows us there's tremendous meaning behind this time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. The first thing the Prophet asks for a long witness and Okay, fairly high, right? All I'm asking you to do good and fair, I will

00:02:04--> 00:02:42

tell you rod is a plural term. And it means to do all of the good, the hidden good, and the public good, the good that everyone can see and the good that people cannot see, the hidden good and the public good, the good that is in your heart and the deeds that are dealing with other people that will allow me to worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allow me to pray Sadat to to make don't have to go for Hajj to go for Allah, allow me to help the week, allow me to feed the poor, allow me to give sadaqa allow me to build masjids in schools and teach students, all of this is hierarchical, erotism wide encompassing terminology, and a loss of penalty Allah or just orders us not only to do

00:02:42--> 00:03:18

higher odds, but to race towards it. And so a lot of soldiers in the Quran says festival highlights race and compete to do a lot to do all forms of good, the good that is in the public, and the good that is hidden. And Allah subhanaw taala rewards us for all the good that we do. And a lot of xojo when he mentions about the prophets, and he describes them, he says in own candle, you said your own affiliates, they were the ones who are racing towards good. So let tells us to compete towards that hierarchy. All that is good. And to race towards all that is good. And this is something that should tell us that we should have good that we do in public, but also good that we do in secret because of

00:03:18--> 00:03:57

hierarchies encompasses all of them. And then he says what's How can one karate and to abandon all the evil, abandon the public evil and the hidden evil, the evil that people can see and the evil that people cannot see as well. And, you know, when you are doing the hierarchy and the hierarchy, the good deeds are public, it helps you prevent it helps prevent you from doing evil deeds, like the good you be, you start off the door by saying oh law allow me to do good. And then you say, oh, law prevents me from doing evil. Because when you do good, it helps prevent you from doing evil. The first thing helps you against the second thing, right. And so if you start to do a lot of good

00:03:57--> 00:04:28

things, and you start going to the masjid, and you start praying to Allah, and you start helping the poor, and you start doing all these activities, then you start meeting people who are also doing those things. and meeting people have a similar mindset. And you start to make friends that are good. And those good friends pull you away from evil deeds, and pull you away from an evil environment that you might be in. And so you ask a lot first to do good. And then you ask a lot of parents at it to save you from that from evil as well. And the third thing the prophets I send them asks for in this too hot, what have been Misaki and, and allow me to love the poor. And this is so

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

powerful. You know, not the prophet SAW his enemies, not saying allow me to help the poor, allow me to feed them, allow me to give them a shelter? No, he's saying oh law allow me to love the poor to have love for them. There are cities that go out of their way to hide and get rid of the poor, that they will make fill buses of homeless people and bust them out of the city. You know, that's no love for the people who are poor, the profits on the low end and doesn't just want us to serve the poor. He wants us to love them. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says in a hadith he says Oh, I wish I hadn't been Misaki and oh

00:05:00--> 00:05:26

You shall love those who are poor. What could we be him and bring them closer to you? For indeed, if you do so Allah will bring you closer to him on the Day of Judgment. And because of this episode or the long run, he said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, he taught he taught us not to go to a wedding that was only intended invitation not to accept invitations. That was only for those who are rich, he says either has no honey, What

00:05:29--> 00:06:04

a moron and then oh gee, if there was an invitation that was only specific for the rich, and it specifically excluded the poor, he said, The Prophet sallallahu Sallam ordered us not to accept those invitations. And this shows you how powerful the Prophet sallallaahu Edison instructed his companions to have love and compassion for those who are poor, and have been robbed of the long run. One of the great scholars in our Deen wanted to add to it, he says that loving the poor is born out of your love for a lot, because people will only love those who benefit them in the dunya. You know, they love this person, because he has, you know, status and this person is popular, and this person

00:06:04--> 00:06:43

is rich. So we love these people, because they have, you know, status and relevance in the dunya, who loves the poor people, those who look beyond the dunya, those who look beyond the usefulness and the utility of the dunya, they see a larger agenda, they have love for a larger agenda. Because of this, they love everyone a larger agenda is created. And so this is something the Prophet sallallahu wasallam tried to put in our hearts. We have been Mr. Kenan to love those who are poor. And then he says, What and takfiri What are how many, that you forgive me? And you show me mercy. Even if we did our best to do good deeds, even if we did our best to avoid evil sins, even if we do our best to

00:06:43--> 00:07:21

help the poor and love the poor, we're going to fall short. We're going to make mistakes. And so what do we need? We need the forgiveness of Allah azza wa jal in his mercy. When takfeer Ali, what's our harmony, that you forgive me and that you show me mercy? And we're going to be constantly shortcoming and making mistakes. So we need the mercy of that forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala. And then he says, without to be omean fifth lesson for telephony, illegal violence, win, or lose if you intend a pfitzner for the people, then take my life, allow me to die without me being tested. The believer cherishes and loves so much his belief in Allah, you never want to risk it. If there's

00:07:21--> 00:07:57

going to be a pfitzner trial, a difficulty that might test people's faith, and we don't want that test. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Oh Allah take my life rather than me going through a test that might shake my faith. And because of this, the prophet son alone, wherever you send them, he said, If Nutan your Chroma in Adam said there's two types of things, the children of Adam hate, and one of them, he said, will probably melt the children Adam hate death. Well, no to higher level minute fitna, but death is better for them than fitna. It's better to die than to undergo a significant test and trial that might cause you to lose your faith in Allah subhanho wa

00:07:57--> 00:08:34

Taala. And this concept of not wanting to fall into fitna is connected to the idea of doing good how another Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says bad deeds will be amended sada quickly Hurry up as early as possible do good deeds. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said before there comes a fitna that is so intense, that the person will go to sleep a Muslim, wake up a disbeliever go to sleep a disbeliever and wake up a Muslim, ie before that fits in that comes that is so intense and difficult, what will protect you against that pfitzner doing good deeds, and this is why the heart begins Allah allow me to do good deeds, because that's something that will protect

00:08:34--> 00:09:12

me. If the fitna comes for me. And the end of this is what Aloma in the back or lie asked you for your love, and the love of those whom you love, and the love of anything that will grant me or bring me towards your love. And this is so powerful, because this whole day has been about love. And so the Prophet concludes it about love. Why are we asking a lot to do good, because good brings us to the love of Allah subhanaw taala the prophets on the lower end of the sentence says that people who continue to do good deeds, they fulfill their obligations and they continue to worship a lot doing extra deeds, praying extra sooner giving extra charity, they said prophesizing them says inadequate

00:09:12--> 00:09:44

see, they keep doing this Hector until Allah subhanaw taala loves that person, and so are good deeds brings us to the love of Allah are abandoning evil deeds brings us to the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala our love of the poor is born out of our love for Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we love the poor, because we love a lot. I'm so jealous. We love everyone he has created and even if they can't help us in the dunya we realize that by loving them and being in their company and spending time with them, and including them in our circles that we are actually getting closer to a lot of religion. And we want to abandon and avoid all fitna. We want to avoid the tests and the trials for

00:09:44--> 00:10:00

a reason. We love our Eman And we love it so much. We don't want anything to threaten that. So the whole thing has been about the love of Allah azza wa jal and so the Prophet concludes on this powerful, beautiful note, Allah give us your love, and give us the love of those who you love and give us

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

The love of anything that will allow us to attain your love We ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to have in our hearts love for Allah subhanho wa Taala Santa Monica warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
