So when will it come I have to login but a cat two thank you for joining us for another episode of prophetic. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting with one of the companions should have been else and he said to him OSHA dead.

you see people going after gold and silver and other narration, if you see them going after the nod and didn't have, you know, dollars and cents, then you should go after these words. And why is the Prophet valuing these words so much? Because gold and silver and dollars incense, those are keys that can open the dounia but these words are so powerful, they can open for you both this world and the next world, the dunya and the athlete. So he tells her dad learn these words from me. What are these words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sitting with her dad, he tells him along with me as I look at the battlefield armor overall, I asked

00:01:20--> 00:02:03

Well, Hursley evatik and I asked you to allow me to worship you in the best manner was a local called Ben salema. And they asked you for a heart which is sound what he said and saw the PA and a tongue that is truthful was a locum and Heidi Mehta, Adam, and I asked you for all the good that you know, and I

00:02:03--> 00:02:41

seek refuge and you are the victim in shuttling meta alibi seek refuge in You from the evil that you know, was the pharaoh Kalamata Adam, and I seek forgiveness in you from what you know, in the canta Alam on who you indeed You're the one who knows all that is hidden, all that is in the unseen. So Pamela, it's such a powerful, beautiful, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us Intel tells us that this is better than gold and silver because realize brothers and sisters, gold and silver and these things go away. They run out, you know people who have them, they have them until they don't have it, but what we do with Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala says, Man,

00:02:41--> 00:03:20

the commandment will not in the law HVAC, what is with us, in this world, in fact, they runs out will man the law he backs but what is with a loss of penalty either shall remain so chase after that which will remain the Prophet sallallahu wasallam begins this Dr. Singh Allah homogeneous look at the battlefield. All I asked you for steadfastness in all of my affairs, give me steadfastness allow me to be firm. And the affair that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is referring to mostly is the affair of worshiping Allah penalty out of the affair of this religion of this path of making dry of praying to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and I showed you a long line as she says, you know the the

00:03:20--> 00:03:58

profit slice and and made the most was the Oliver pollute fab bits called v allergenic that he would say, Oh, you who alternates the heart, make my heart firm upon this religion. So asking a lot for firmness to be steadfast and firm on the Dean was the, the process and that made the most and he begins this too I would that same. ask Allah Allah make me firm in this religion. Being firm in this religion is a tremendous treasure. It is a great gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. To die as a Muslim is better than all of the gold and the silver in this world. What can be better than to die with faith in our hearts of a with a loss of Hanover Island and the fact that the Prophet sallallahu

00:03:58--> 00:04:38

wasallam himself is the one asking to be steadfast like he is making this. The most I should says that he made the most is for Allah to make him firm and to make him steadfast. Never take the fact that you are a believer for granted. If the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam is the one asking a lot to make him firm, then all of us should realize that none of us should take the fact that we are Muslims for granted. Just because we are believers today does not mean that we will be tomorrow. So ask a lot to keep you firm upon his religion firm upon this path. Now how can we maintain or how can we attain this steadfastness this firmness upon this religion? The next thing the prophet SAW Selim

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

says, answers that question will azima to Allah, Allah grant me determination upon the righteous path to attain steadfastness, that steadfastness that firmness that we've asked the last panel to Allah for in our religion, we need to find determination azeema the secret to being firm in this religion is is the secret is is

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

You know the secret of being determined, you know the secret of being firm in our slaughter, the secret of being firm in our fasting, the secret of being firm in our thicket of Allah subhanaw taala the secret of being firm in avoiding sins. The secret to all of this isn't being truthful and and having real determination with Allah subhanaw taala. And this concept of azeema of determination, a lost parent, it uses it to describe the best profits, the best messengers, you know, lots of adults it says, well, spirit cannot suffer only as me minerals will be patient, just as we realize. The messengers of strong determination were patient. And so were these messengers of strong

00:05:37--> 00:06:21

determination. It is no and Moosa and Ibrahim and Isa and our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, new hindi Rahim and musella he said, Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and so look at and consider the lives and the determination in the lives of all of those righteous, amazingly determined prophets. Look at Allah, his son, who called and preach to his people for 950 years. Look at the determination of Ibrahim I mean his son who was thrown into the fire, Castaway by his father, and yet he perseveres and continues to carry the call and the message to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the message of tohave La ilaha illa Allah, what's amazing determination is that look at

00:06:21--> 00:06:59

the determination of Mousavi, who sent him who fought against the worst of all the tyrants for the island, and he faces defiance even from his own people. Yet he contains he remains determined and continues determined upon the path of Allah subhana wa Tada. Look at the ISA who's fought by his own people until they even tried to kill him and our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how often did they abuse him? How often did they fight him? How often did they insult him? How often did they attack him and he sallallahu Sallam remains steadfast and firm and determined. They attacked him. They tried to strangle him to death. They threw upon his backs a little longer to send them the

00:06:59--> 00:07:38

carcass of a dead camel. they plotted in plan to assassinate our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they boycotted and tried to starve him. So Allahu Allah, you send them he would see his companions being tortured and killed just as the imposed him with brutality from the path of Allah subhanaw taala. They also tried to seduce him away from the path of Allah azza wa jal, they offered him money. They offered him kingdom, they offered him women, if only he would abandon calling to La ilaha illAllah. But he responded with determination. He said, if they put the sun in my right hand, if they put the moon in my left hand, I would not abandon this call. This is the determination of

00:07:38--> 00:08:18

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his truthful, determined can conviction carried him and made him steadfast upon this religion, and we tuning to carry that same steadfastness as we call to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then the doc continues was iloka Mooji batty romatic was a member of erotic but all I asked you for that which obligates Your mercy and I asked you for the means of your forgiveness. And this is an interesting very beautiful phrasing from the prophet SAW Selim. Just as we asked a lot to make us firm in this religion, we should realize no matter how determined we are, no matter how firm we are, in this religion, we have to realize that we are human beings, we are

00:08:18--> 00:08:53

going to err and we are going to fall short and we are not going to be as good as we want to be or as we aim to be. And if we are going to fall short. Therefore we need to ask Allah Subhana Allah for his mercy and for his forgiveness. And the prophet SAW I said to him, you know, he says as a local Mooji, back to dogmatic I asked you for that which obligates Your mercy meaning there are certain things that if we do them, we will attain Allah subhanho to Allah's mercy, right. There are certain things if we were to do it, we attained the mercy of Allah to Allah and the Prophet is asking Allah give me all of these things that attain the mercy of Allah. So for instance, Allah subhanaw taala

00:08:53--> 00:09:31

says, we put it I'll put an SME Willa who wants you to come to him when there are losses when you when the Quran is recited, then listen to it and pay attention for what for for you may as achieve mercy from Allah subhanaw taala you may receive mercy from Allah azza wa jal so listening to the Quran and paying attention to it is one of the things that brings us the mercy of Allah azza wa jal well clear over Rasool Allah Allah come to the moon. He also says a lot of parents either follow or obey the Prophet so that you may have mercy following the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam is something that helps us attain the mercy of Allah, being merciful to other people. The

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Those who are merciful to other, the Most Merciful will show them mercy. So when we are merciful and compassionate to other people, that is something that allows us to attain the mercy of Allah. So this one phrase was eloquent Mooji batty rock Matic, I asked you for that which obligates Your mercy it is asking for all of these things at once. Anything that allows me to attain the mercy of Allah, Allah allow me to have it. Likewise, it's true for the next phrase. Why is that? Mmm erotic

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

Which causes us are the means to your forgiveness. What is the means to the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet told us so many things, fasting in Ramadan. The Prophet says, Whoever fasts Ramadan, amen and YT seven with faith and expecting reward for from a las panatela, who fear Allah hometel condemn him and then be all of his sins will be forgiven. his past sins will be forgiven. Whoever stands in prayer later to further his sins will be forgiven. Whoever makes it that kind of a loss of handles I don't remember a lot as the Prophet says. Whoever says to handle that will be handy 100 times in the day that his past sins will be forgiven. All of these different

00:10:35--> 00:11:11

things going for camera one armor to the other armor will forgive your sins going for Hajj, when you go for Hajj, Your sins are forgiven, and many, many more things we don't even have time to mention. All of these things give give us forgiveness. And this one phrase that we're asking Isaiah Mmm, erotic, all of the means to your forgiveness or loss of penalty either. It's as if in this one phrase, we're asking a lot to give us all of these different things. Allow us to fast Ramadan allow us to witness native culture allow us to go for Hajj allow us to go for Umrah. We're asking for all of these things with this single phrase, allow me the means to your forgiveness. The next thing the

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

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the dryer was a local shukran aromatic warehouse near evatik. I asked you to make me thankful for your blessings. And they asked you to make me worship you in the best manner. And these are two incredible, beautiful meanings for us realize our lives are always between patience and gratitude. The beginning of this drama is talking about being steadfast, it's talking about being determined. And we are determined against obstacles, against difficulties against hardships. And when we go through those hardships we need to be patient. But when we are not going through obstacles and hardships and difficulties, and life is good, and we are

00:11:49--> 00:12:27

witnessing and living luxuries and ease then what do we need to be towards Allah subhanaw taala we need to be thankful. So these two elements capture all of our faith all of our event in Allah subhana wa Tada. And so we need to. So we ask Allah, Allah, just as we are asking him for steadfastness, and firmness against difficulty, we to ask him to allow us to be grateful, allow us to recognize the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala and to be grateful for the blessings that Allah has given us. And then he says, we're hosting the Vatican to worship a law in the best manner. And the worshipping Allah subhanaw. taala is often connected to gratitude with a law. So for instance,

00:12:27--> 00:13:03

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says at the end of each prayer, he told wives, if injected at the end of each prayer, you should say along that line, Neolithic rica will show clicker or hostname, or law helped me or aid me in remembering you, and in being thankful to you and in worshipping you in the best manner. So being thankful and worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, in the best manner is something the Prophet paired together often. And so many people worship a lot, but when they worship Allah subhanaw taala, they don't worship Him in the best manner. You know, their prayer is very fast, very swift, you know, they're reciting the words, and they're not even thinking about it. If

00:13:03--> 00:13:40

they make dry, they're seeing a mean, and they're not even thinking about what they're asking for who they're asking. So how do we make sure that we have presence of mind when we worship a law? How do we make sure that when we worship a law, our emotions are there, we're mindful, we, you know, the way to do that is to realize that we owe Allah subhanaw taala way more than the five minutes of Sadat that we're praying, right? We owe less power to Allah way more, why not extend your prayer by a couple of minutes, Allah has given us so much so by recognizing all the blessings of Allah subhana wa sallam that he's given us, it allows us to understand how much we owe Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:13:40--> 00:14:20

Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, moves on to the next point, and he says what's called Ben salema was eloquently sanand vacuolar. I asked you for a sound heart and for a truthful tongue, and this is really the focal point of this entire drama, that we are given a sound heart called Ben selima, right, all that we asked for, to be steadfast from the means of forgiveness and mercy, from gratitude. All of this emits from a heart that is sound, this is the real treasure. This is the true treasure, the heart that is sound, Allah Subhana Allah mentions the Prophet Ibrahim in the Quran. When I took Zinio my iPhone, do not humiliate me on the Day of Resurrection. Yo man I

00:14:20--> 00:14:59

am throwing Madden when I've been on the day when neither wealth nor children will benefit the person in lemon at a law heavy urban setting, except for the person who arrives with a heart that is sound, the heart that is sound is the one that is free and safe from from worshipping other than a law and from Riyadh from showing off for the people and from arrogance and from conceit and from following our baser desires and lusts and from envy and from jealousy and from assuming the worst about others and from hatred and bitterness. These are the diseases of the heart. And the sound heart is the one that is free of all these diseases. These diseases pull us in one direction or

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

Another away from a lot of agenda. So the sound heart is the one that has no space for these diseases, because it is consumed with the love of Allah and with longing Allah and with one wanting to be with Allah Subhana Allah and with wanting to have a closeness with a lot of knowledge, and then the art continues. But even Selena, what he said and what he said and saw decla I asked you for a sound heart, and for a truthful tongue. And another narration what he said and vackra a tongue that remembers a lot, a truthful tongue, meaning that we are saying, Oh Allah, you know, we asked you for all of these things, let us be truthful in it. Let us be the people who actually mean what

00:15:35--> 00:16:12

we say, let us be the people who are truthful that when we asked you to be firm, we actually want to be firm. We want to be firm on this religion. We're not simultaneously planning to harm people steal from people backed by devout people. While we're asking you to be firm in the religion, we're also doing things that belie that thing that we're asking you, or law, make us firm, make us truthful in what we are asking you. And more importantly, the prophet sly send them ties the idea of the sound heart with the state of our tongue. And the prophets. Allah mentions this reality in many different, you know, a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he says that lies to him in and I'm Tasha

00:16:12--> 00:16:47

is totally believable that the faith of a servant will never be firm, until their heart is firm. And their heart will never be firm until their tongue is firm. So the prophets I send them wants us to know that our hearts are connected to our tongues and vice versa. You know, what we say affects what are the status of our hearts and what we feel affects what we say as well. These two things are connected, and we have to pay a lot of attention for it. And the prophet SAW Selim then, you know, he says was eloquent Heidi Mehta alum were the becoming shoddily Matta alum that they asked you for the best of what you know, and I seek refuge in You from the evil that you know. And so we have to

00:16:47--> 00:17:22

recognize we're asking Allah azzawajal the most powerful he is the one who knows everything. And he says what stuck through Kalamata Adam and I seek refuge in You from what you know, right? There are sins that we do that we forget about. And we don't even realize that we need to seek the forgiveness of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Allah says, I saw love when so Allah has kept account but people have forgotten. So we asked a lot for forgiveness for the things that we have forgotten in nicaea. And in the entire lemahieu you have indeed you are the one who knows all that is hidden. We're asking a great and powerful, powerful Lord, who is so knowledgeable who knows the things that we do

00:17:22--> 00:17:36

not know and are not capable of knowing. We asked the last panel to edit to give us all these amazing benefits and to allow us to attain this treasure. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about join us in short one the future for more episodes of prophetic domotz in America.
