Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim Al hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen or salat wa salam ala Ashrafi Lambie, even more saline CD now and Abyan Mo Mo Lana Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine Robbie Sherif Ali surgery via silly Emery. Hello kureta Millie Cerny of Coco Lee Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Allah knows Ohana Marhaba. And become we starting at seven bearing in mind that mercury is basically at about half past so we will break from our rib and then conduct the vicar and the the explanation of those ADKAR After Maghrib and will broadcast that as well as opposed to last week when I cut the broadcast, not thinking that you know there would be those waiting for that I do apologize for that. But we begin the class with a reading from Mataro to Kulu, which is a poem essentially by Imam Al mo lewd and the translation and commentary of which we had printed for for those who are interested by Sheikh Hamza Yusuf and this is as a means to make our vicar connect to the objective of the care
which is to purify our heart and gain closeness and proximity to Allah subhanho wa taala. So, we read through the first, the first nine lines of poetry we continue from that point. So this is on page number 15. With the bone starts, we have discussed, the feeling that embodies the person entering
a journey to Allah subhana wa Taala and that is the feeling of being a servant of being a slave, that we turn to Allah, with our, with our hearts, as servants in need. Then the author says, the bow the poet says, of the firmly grasping this foundation, then mastering the hearts infirmities, sorry, infirmities is the second stage, meaning after realizing that we are a servant of Allah, we are servants of Allah and we are in need in desperate need of Allah subhanho wa Taala The next step is to recognize that there is a problem with our hearts. That is a problem with our hearts. And no this is not referring to heart disease, or any you know, heart attacks that may be pending Allah protect
us and grant us good health. But the problem with our hearts is not a physical one but a spiritual one.
And there are many verses in the Quran which allude to this. And then there are many a hadith of the prophets of Allah who it was sent him which alludes to this as well.
The heart, the heart, And Yahweh speaking again about the Kolbe
has built within it.
and jelly qualities prophetic qualities, such as Taqwa Sauber, sugar,
and the plethora of other excellent virtues that we all want to have.
Then the heart is also afflicted with
a number of diseases unique to each individual.
Sometimes we refer to the spiritual element as the as the Kolbe and sometimes we refer to it as the knifes Allah says, when I've seen one So where have Allah Maha foo Raha taka by the knifes and the one who had made it, created it for Allah Maha and then inspired into it for Judah, its potential of evil, what the Cova and its potential of good
but the Alpha Harmon Zakah successful however, is the one who seeks to purify that heart. So what we learn from this is that
as we sitting here, as I'm sitting here, in fact, I've got
tastes in my heart.
I have weaknesses, spiritual illnesses that are unique to me, which may not plague any of you. You have unique spiritual illnesses that plague you, which are not necessarily shared by everyone, and some of them are more common than others.
But the second station, the second stage of our spiritual development that the poet is alluding to, is recognizing the fact that we have this.
If you sit before Allah, considering yourself as a whole, as complete,
then by necessity you cannot come to Allah as a servant, because
it is the desperation the need that we
feel inside ourselves, the hole that we feel inside of ourselves, recognizing this is part of our servitude before Allah subhana wa Tada.
So if we feel as though everything is fine with me, I'm, I'm perfect, right? We don't necessarily say this. But the very thought that we don't have any need for reformation or change, or we don't need to improve ourselves comes with that built in idea that we are fine, we are okay. And therefore we are not in need. And therefore we cannot be a true servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala knowledge of the heart ailments, what causes each of them? And what removes them is an obligation upon everyone.
What does this mean? Do we know some of the spiritual diseases of the heart?
I'm going to I'm going to mention three. And then I want you to think of whether you can identify others as well.
Arrogance, or Cuber to be more specific, because arrogance is a very broad term. Right? People often call things arrogance, but in Arabic, there are different words for those things. You get arrogance. That's one, what is arrogance? Bottrill Hakuho hum to nurse is having, having a scornful attitude towards the truth, perhaps because of where it comes from. That that's the concept of fierce giant from beta COVID. And who are you to come and tell me, you know, does it matter?
Or is what is being said more important, as you park your car? And the vagrant comes to you and says, brother, you you parking in a no parking zone?
I mean, because it's a very grungy, tell him a get away from your man, go play somewhere else.
Because he's a vagrant, not because what he's saying is false. That would be a form of arrogance, or hum to nurse is having a superiority complex. We don't necessarily state as a bliss did. And so you may know I'm better than him. But we have a superiority complex in our actions. And in our attitudes, we we feel as though we are better than others, or we behave as though we are better than others. That's arrogance. Now the example has said, right,
to wish for a favor to be removed from someone because we feel that we are more deserving of that favor than that person. That's a second example. Third example Hopper dunya excessive love of material things. These are three examples of spiritual diseases, right?
That according to the author, who is quoting Imam Al Ghazali, says this is the ruling of Allah Ghazali However, this does not apply to one who has already granted a sound heart that we'll get to in a moment. But he's saying that it is compulsory for every person to know the diseases of the heart.
Just as it is compulsory for every person to know that sila is fuddled. That Zina is haram, that drinking intoxication you know is haram. Gambling is haram. It is similarly compulsory for somebody to recognize that it is prohibited
to have a quality or to harbor equality of hassad, to harbor equality of Kibera right to harbor equality of robinia. Now, I mentioned three spiritual diseases, but that's not a limited list. Just quickly, I don't know if you if you thought of others, but yes, it is a few that comes to mind. Anger,
right, the hub of
spiritual illness, right. Ria ostentation to do things which are supposed to be done for Allah, but we're actually doing them for show so that people either see us or hear about us, and for that reason, we are more motivated to do that thing. Or we change the way we do that thing. Right. It's another example.
The list is quite extensive. Imam Ghazali Rahim Allah Allah in his encyclopedic work his magnum opus called a higher alumi Deen. He has an entire volume just on a Mohali cat, the destroyers because these spiritual diseases they are difficult to detect within oneself.
arrogant person is the last one to understand and to recognize that he's arrogant. The jealous person is the last one to recognize that he or she is jealous. The ostentatious person is the
Last one to realize, if ever, you could perhaps go your entire life without realizing these are the weaknesses that I have that I possess. Now.
It's Mahalik. Its destructive for, for a number of reasons.
Right? It's destructive because of the seriousness of these illnesses. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that anyone with an atom's wait with an iota of Gibberd will not smell the fragrance of Jannah. So it's weighty.
It serious because it's difficult to detect.
Right? We are blinded, we are blinded by the faults of the people that we love, we love ourselves the most. So we are very blind about our own faults. Right? It's serious, it's difficult to detect. Thirdly, who third, I should say, it's difficult to,
a hold of, it's difficult to gain a hold of meaning what as you will see, now, you cannot eradicate it entirely. At least not
the way we might imagine, is required. So for example, anger,
anger. Rabab is a Satanic quality.
It is a Satanic quality. It's a bad quality.
But not entirely.
It's when anger is misplaced, that it is problematic. It is when it is excessive, that it is problematic. But is it not true that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also became angry at times, he became angry, and he became angry for Allah.
So that his anger in its proper place, he did not become angry when people would offend him personally salAllahu alayhi wasallam. But when people offended others before him, or broke Allah's laws before him, salAllahu alayhi wasallam then he would become angry visibly so but even then, not excessively, what is excessive, it's one thing to become angry. And it's another thing to become angry and in Sway as a result of being angry, or hit someone as a result of being angry, or divorced someone as a result of being angry, all of that would be excessive.
And it's a sign of a hypocrite as well. So that's another problem. Because
you don't get rid of it entirely. It's always there, but you need to gain a hold of it, you need to gain control of it. This is why we speak about Teskey to knifes Teskey to nafs is the reformation of the soul and the cleansing of the soul. It is not a destination, it is a struggle, it is a journey, it is constant, you always have to be at it. As opposed to say the person who is addicted to
alcohol or drugs.
Such an individual
is clearly aware of the fact that they are doing haram because it's it's physical. It's right they they may take long to realize that they are addicted, but they are aware of the fact that they are committing a prohibited thing.
But it's also quite easy to get a hold of relatively speaking. I mean, compare that to arrogance, no. For addiction. That person can go into medication, go into a rehab into a Narcotics Anonymous program, get himself a sponsor, move. He locked himself up whatever they need to do, but they can easily relatively speaking. And I'm saying that knowing that addiction is a massive struggle. But I'm competing with something like arrogance now
with intangible and it's a struggle that no one is able to really assist you with. It's not entirely true. It's not entirely true. The prophets also assisted the Sahaba pious individuals, knowledgeable individuals can assist us but at the end of the day, they can only guide us with knowledge with directives, etc. The struggle is inside. The struggle is inside your dunya your love the of material things. It's an internal struggle. Nobody knows. The person addicted to eating. The person addicted to eating well it is sinful, that eating is not sinful. But when you're addicted to eating and you indulge to the point where it's excessive that sinful, over eating is sinful and over eating
as a habit, where you don't have any control
That's an addiction.
That person struggle is an internal one. They struggle most people by themselves for the rest of their lives.
If they're struggling at all, because the other option is to just, well, that's just me, we all have our weaknesses. My weakness is I'm ostentatious, I'm a show off. So therefore I'm just going to carry on showing who my weakness is. I you know, I love extramarital affairs, I'm just going to carry on and makes it a medical affairs. This is what many people do. But Islam teaches us that they are higher objectives. You can come to Allah, with your body having made Salah your body having fasted your body, having given charity, your body having undertaken Hajj, but your heart, your heart isn't prepared to be presented before Allah, the crimes of the heart as serious, if not more serious
than the crimes of the limbs.
The crimes of the heart are as serious, if not more serious than the clap that the crimes of the limbs, so knowledge of these illnesses, what causes each of them, what causes each of them. And this is why ticks such as this, and that the VMM was early are so important, because they don't just tell us the what they tell us the why they tell us the how they tell us how to identify it, they tell us various things, right? It's not just about Okay, let's go listen to on keyboard keyboard is such a bad thing. All the people who keep everybody in their Juma, you know, thinking, I wish someone so would hear this talk right now. And I was hokey. But show me the guy who's sitting there and
thinking, I really needed to hear this, because I think I may be guilty of some of this. That's spiritual maturity, right? So knowledge of it is one thing, knowing what causes them and what removes them.
This is what what the soul was supposed to be. What does care supposed to be? Right? The idea of, you know, I'm sure you've seen the idea of a chef and the mureeds. And in the Bay Area, and so forth. This very formal way of the the formalities are just formalities. But the objective is actually that the chef is supposed to be somebody who is very knowledgeable about these things. And the Marines are taking that shift as a teacher.
And they suppose to come to their chief saying, Chief, I've got a problem. I'm addicted to pornography. How can I get rid of this addiction from my life?
This is what it's supposed to be. Not just about, okay, I've got a problem. My mother in law, she keeps doing this, or I've got a problem. My neighbor keeps doing that. Oh, my wife civilly worry, Oh, those are the problems people come to all our mouth.
Show me the person who comes to the Alamo and says, I have a big problem. I need to I need to learn how to become more spiritually focused in my salah. That's Ray and and this is what Islamic spirituality really focuses on the spiritual development, right spiritual development. So those those items, knowledge of the hearts elements, what causes each of them, what removes them is an obligation on everyone. As in like it like we consider it to be farmed for you to learn to butcher Quran, we consider it for you to learn how to make a stingy will do goosal, Salah etc. It is also fun to know about the diseases of the heart because these are things
Allah protect us but
if undetected, they could end up in jahannam.
Simple as that.
And this there's no way around it. Like for example, the prophets Allah Allah Allah, Allah was an MC. He can well hazard I warn you about hassad right. And I'm, I'm, I'm reluctant to translate this as jealousy. Because jealousy means what? Oh, that's a nice car. I wish I had a car like that.
That's jealousy. But that's not how I said.
That's not hazard. hazard is factory so a car
who can issue a car? Hooray. He's the man. He's married the carpenter
or something of that sort. I should say this in English because sometimes not everybody understands Afrikaans but it just conveys the attitude so well. Where does this person get the nice car like that? How come you know look at the expression My face is part of it. How can now can he drive a car like that easily interest the a gardener I've been working 25 years I can't afford a car like this is hassad because
intrinsically what I'm saying is, I don't want that person to have it. That person doesn't deserve it. I deserve it. Sound familiar? IBLEES felt that Adam, come now. Creator of clay, the angels bind to him. I've been here all along. I'm knowledgeable and pious in worshipping Allah, they should be bowing down to me, that is hassad. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said El Gamal hazard, I warn you of hazard for inner hazard. Kulu Hassan Atacama yaku Kamata Kulu, narrow al Hapa because has said will eat your good deeds like fire, eat firewood,
lookout dangerous disease, your good deeds, your good deeds. So we talking about the person who is doing good deeds. persons going to the masjid five times a day. They betchain Quran making vicar
they just a good person all around. If you look at that person, for all intents and purposes on the outside,
you can't fault that person.
But secretly, Allah knows that this person
is looking around at others constantly with a with it with a deep sense of hazard in them.
Wishing for the favors that they see on Allah, from Allah
to be taken, if anybody sending me messages while I'm teaching, I can't respond and it's also very distracting. So kindly. Don't
if anybody looks around with this type of attitude, oh, this is a nice camera. It has that mode and I get the camera like that. Like he's in monitor mode and just a moment how can you ever get better like you know that type of thought whether that person is making vicar da Sala hij Zakka sadhaka
has said will consume those good deeds like fire eats firewood and it is about such a person that the prophets Allah Lyle SLMC they come in the dev Kiama and then there's a whole line of people by the scale taking some good deeds yeah taking some good deeds Oh Jeff and make a breath you know, you spoke about me write good deeds for me. Oh, you You swore at me on that day Oh, you are have said about my God, you will have said about my job, your hazard about my family, and they just collect and collect and collect until there's nothing left. So you see a dangerous disease. Sometimes not sometimes. More often than not. We as an OMA become focused overly so overly focused on the outward
acts, right. The outward acts are important, but without any consideration for the internal acts.
Let me give you an example.
Very real example. I think the ladies would appreciate this example. Even most of them the main right.
So we see a sister
doesn't have to Qian in Lila you are in LA he Raji Hola, hola, wala, Quwata illa biLlah?
Immediately mmediately right.
Now, I asked, is it watching for her to in front of non marriageable men or other marriageable men to be covered? Yes, it is. According to all of the scholars of Anniston, Alabama, no exception.
But that's one aspect
of righteousness, one aspect, one son, that we can easily identify because it's very obvious, it's very open and displayed.
But simultaneously, every person that looks at that lady at that time thinking to themselves, stuff, what is wrong with this woman of today? You know, that that person having that thought, not thinking, you know, what can I do?
What can I What can I do? What can I how can I help you? No, not like that. No, they thinking
it means, you know,
that thought could be as a result of arrogance, because there's an instantaneous assumption that I'm better than that person because I'm waiting Dukie or I'm covered, and this person is not so I'm better than this person. You see.
So are we supposed to just ignore any outwardly bad things? No, of course not. Now can be VAWA. Here we only have the apparent to judge by but it has not become the judges before we judged ourselves. Right. Before we've looked at ourselves. That person, that lady, she
She can have a close relationship with Allah azza wa jal then you in that very condition, horse is missing. Now, remember we talking about this once in the chairs, maybe Allah knows based maybe she makes Salah five times a day, every day on time. And in that condition she covers herself, maybe she goes to bed at night crying in Tober, because she just can't get herself to win the jihad against, hey, she, she just really loves He can't get this off the coverage because of whatever cultural, family pressures, social pressures, peer pressure's, etc. And she's crying. Maybe she wakes up with a hatchet when we all snoring away, and she's begging Allah to help and to guide maybe that sin
brings us closer to Allah than we've ever been in our entire lives. None of that we know.
Or can be the judge of it's between her and Allah.
But we, for the most part, many people will be willing to write her off
simply because of that. And that's just an example. Don't be over focused on the example. It's the principle that matters.
So, the author says
somebody is asking a question on the livestream to suggest the book on elements of the heart and its cues. This is the book this is the suggestion, matara tool club, by Imam and Mo lewd it's a very simple introductory work translation by Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, I would recommend this as a start there are many but this is a good starting there's another book there's a few copies available outside the scope purification of the heart, we did that previously. That's another example of a good starting work. Imam was Alice B diet will he Daya the beginning of guidance that's another work that you could start with but get started inshallah get started. Right.
We're going to end of this this segment, break for Serato Mareep. And then we're going to remain here until eight o'clock with a wicked right so I have the raw table Hi, Dad. Specifically, we completed the entire floor work as far as I know. And now we can enter into the article hi dad and look at the individual car. So this is the ruling of Imam of azalea However, this does not apply to one who was already granted a sound heart. What is he saying? Basically, that a person who is not afflicted by severe spiritual ailments doesn't necessarily need to know the details they have, they just need to work on the weaknesses that they have. So he's saying this is a way around the whole
fog that most of us are neglecting right? Most of us don't know the diseases of the heart, or the cures or the way to eradicate them or, you know, those those details, but he saying, if if a person has was granted a sound heart, then it's not necessarily required in that amount of detail. But this there's a lot more detail to what he's saying in the shot in the commentary, you can read up, you can read up about those details. Inshallah. I want to move on from here as scholars other than el horizonte, opine, in other words, it's other opinions for all of us are akin the hearts illnesses as inherent to humanity as this deem them predominant in man, not qualities necessarily inherent to his
nature. That's some high level stuff about we, you know, we do these, these bad qualities lie are they inherit, are the inherent within the human are inherent within his nature. It's it's a very technical concept. So don't worry too much about that. But know that obliteration of these diseases until no trace remains is beyond the capacity of human beings. I love this. I love this. Because this makes the journey doable. Without this, it seems impossible. So the person who is struggling with food addiction, for example, they struggling they suffering, they overeating, they overindulging they feeding the enough's, constantly, right?
To tell that person look here, you need to get to a point where you're not eating. You only eat a few morsels every day.
It's like telling the Sahaba at the beginning of wahi at the beginning of Revelation, you cannot drink hammer at all, stay away from it entirely.
Allah's even do that do it. Allah Allah prohibited it in stages, right in stages.
why is that important? Why is it important that instead of just telling us fast in the month of Ramadan, Allah tells us good Viva la camassia mu gamma katiba Allah levena mean publikum La La Quinta con four
thing is prescribed upon you, as it was prescribed upon those before you. Why? Oh, it's doable. It's been done. I can also do it. Right, saying that obliteration of these diseases until no today's remains is beyond the capacity of human beings makes you realize I don't need to get rid of my love of dunya I don't need to get rid of my love of food, I don't need to get rid of my,
my lustful feelings, I don't need to get rid of my anger, I don't, etc, I need to get it under control. And that's key. It's a big difference. It's a very, very big difference to say to somebody, you need to change entirely the person you know must change. That's a lot. That's a lot. But to explain to them, we require subtle adjustments. Because where you are currently, it's not good for you, right? Adjustments sound a lot better than eradication and eradication within the human isn't possible within the Gambia, la Musa lottosend. That's a different story, but not within us ordinary human beings. Nonetheless, here I give you what you need to know of the definitions aetiologies and
Kjos. So the person asking the question, sister, Haji Robbins are saying, this is exactly what the book is about. Because the author is is seeking to give us exactly that. The definitions of these diseases. The etiology is like identifying them and pinpointing them and understanding them and knowing how to cure yourself of them, and what you need to do. Right? So for example, the person addicted to pornography, very, very widespread illness, right.
Last, that's out of control. Last that's out of control. What steps should this person take to rid themselves of this? Now we may think it's clear they must stop. They must stop. But when one is addicted to a sin, it is not as simple as stopping.
You didn't just stop
it's like a person who was addicted to smoking cigarettes. They don't just stop they need to find some cessation. Some people can do it and have done it and do it. Masha Allah, my bruke right. But it's not as easy as that for everyone. It's an addict, that's the nature of addiction. Right?
And we need to be sympathetic towards people who suffer also sorts of diseases and addictions because they suffering from those ones we suffering from others. Right. So what steps should they take who can tell me what the steps are to widespread disease? I'm sure many sitting here or listening to this may be suffering from that or somebody in your family suffering from that how do you get yourself away from that?
It is within Islamic spirituality does get to knifes does get to in Kulu does so whatever name you want to call it by that the focus the focus is on this exact question. Right. And of course as the week's Ask, Allah, Allah we will look at at these at these things one by one the next the first one that he that he goes into, which we'll do next week is about miserliness. miserliness.
What's the another way to miserliness?
stinginess? Yeah, stinginess, okay to be a miser
What do you know about that? What do you know about identifying all your minds are you not a miser? What is the definition of a miser like what is too stingy what is not stingy enough? And if you are then how do you get rid of it so that would be the first one inshallah Allah so we end up on this point. The books are available year if those watching online would like to acquire copies you can make contact with us on the number that I posted last week after it posted again Inshallah, and then stay with us. I'm going to continue the stream, we will be making Maghrib Sala and they after we will, we will engage in the article had dead a few pieces they have, looking at the meanings the
recitation they have, and we will end the broadcast at eight o'clock to Xochimilco Iran. Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.
I firstly would like to
invite inform you about a website that I stumbled across today. For the first time, I can only assume that it hasn't been the law around for that long, although item, haven't seen it before. And I haven't heard anybody speaking about it. And also, I didn't, I didn't have the opportunity to verify any of the other things on here. But this, specifically, the page on the writable had Dad, you can see it on the screen. And for those of you there we go. It's called Salawat, hub Salawat. Hub. I think it's an excellent resource for somebody who wants to learn the article had that, although it's not in the cape styled
recitation. So if that's what you're interested in, I think, one of our one of our students, I don't see him here this evening, he did ask me about the class. But perhaps he's watching online. He asked before we can even learn this, you can learn it from this. But this is this is from what I gather, in the in the Yemeni style of recitation. So for us kept doing this, it will sound very
But it's completely fine. It's completely valid. And I would actually advise that we we learn it from here, also, for our own purposes. So when you want to use it as a daily recitation, this is the way to go. Because this full recording of the Rottie not of the four way what we did up to this point is the four way this is the article had sometimes here locally, we said we're going to the head that thing in that gathering, we didn't even recite anything but imamo had that right, he actually he actually compiled the raw Thebe and a few other words, like the real the Latif and so forth. But this is the royalty so you'll find these the mp3, which you can download this PDF, which
you can download, there's a video with the let's just see what the video looks like
that's the video over the for those looking at this online.
So it's, it's, I call this
I call this karaoke. So they're reciting. And in the lyrics are also on the screen. I call that karaoke mafia, if that's inappropriate, but it's just a way for me to kind of make a joke out of the concept, but it's like a follow along. Right. So the reciting. And you follow along in the word, both in English as well as in transliteration? I think. Yes. transliteration. So if you can't recite Arabic with transliteration is the and the translation as well. And then also,
I'm sure the, there's more to it than that. But nonetheless, that's what you're working with. For those for those joining us online. I'm going to stop the shading of the website. I can't control both. But now you know the website and you're more than welcome to open up that browser and follow along. Then you have the online version. So if you don't have the PDF for anything with you, you can always just take out your smartphone and open up the online version. And they you see it starts at Fatiha. Illa Ruhi Sahibi
It Bill Good to be here shared remember I still do these nicknames. So this is saying we reciting the Fatiha for the rewards of which to reach the soul of the author. So it means companion of but yeah it means the author of a raw tip, the raw tip and his name and could to be later shared the pillar of guidance. Al Habib Abdillah Hibino Allah we all had that that's his full name. And then what how did it Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam al Fatiha so we start in a similar way, and then the recitation of Surah Al Fatiha right so they've got de la Gu that sounds like
okay I'm gonna wait for this to play I think within the video
okay, so what I want to come into by that is you need to read it in a similar fashion not because of the lag but because of the pace the full recording is 10 minutes 30 seconds. Show me you make a fuller it will hide that in 10 minutes 30 seconds, it's not going to work right? Because of of the lag words it's very drawn out. So if you choose take this as a litany like you can sit off the Marieb and in 10 minutes 30 seconds you could complete it even if you follow along with the recording. And this Wallahi if you do this it will be so much more effective than just having a cultural gathering of once a week once every now and then because now it's actually going to be a
means for you to grow closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala on a daily basis you can say well you must be quiet okay. And then
we carry on so we did the virtues of the Fatiha the virtues of idle courtesy. We spoke about the virtues of the last segment of Surah Baqarah am Anna Rasool Louima Zilla Hema Rabi till the end, right? And then the T languages. I've heard people refer to that Yankev dynasty languages because when you start with these pages, then you know, this is the full height that this is not the short cat version. This is the full one. And our language immediately got I guess, last
Shari, cara, la Holman koala all Hamner up are you me? Wahoo Ida Cooley Shane Cody. repeated three times. However.
If you say it Leila lava hula Shari Kilala Hoon, cola will hamdu Hawala colletion co de la ilaha illallah, WA the hula Sharika La Romana call him Do you meet a while aqualisa inquiry. It's much quicker, of course. And both are virtuous, I think sometimes do the one sometimes do the other. In that way, you can get the benefits of being able to do it in a short period of time. And it can be a continuation of a very good cultural practice. There are many virtues about
this. For example, it is sooner to recite this 10 times in the morning and 10 times in the evening. Then there's another son about the same thing to recite it 100 times in the morning, 100 times in the evening. But the virtues of it are profound. It's a person who recites a 10 times as freed things slaves, written 10 Good deeds, he raised 10 bad deeds
is another one.
I think I'm forgetting one of it, but all of that just reciting it 10 times reciting it 100 times is all of that times 100. And then the prophets Allah why, oh, it's prediction from shaitan prediction from Python. Right. So when she was saying, you know, everybody wants to run to the Agile moci into the rocky and this one, because they bothered with Shell thean they think they are.
Are you reciting La ilaha illallah wa Hola, sharika lahu Moon koala Al hamdu Allah colletion kadhi regularly. It's like the person who goes straight the moment they start sneezing they go straight to hospital for operation.
They didn't take allergic Pernod.
I don't know all the names of these with this, it took nothing, because straight to hospital for Operation doesn't make sense. So having this as part of our daily recitation will benefit us tremendously, right? So that's the first one. It is to not recite it 10 times in the morning 10 times in the evening, oh, 100 times in the morning 100 times in the evening. Or you could just do it the way we do it off the solder three times of the each side. So these know you can see it's very fluid. It's not like it must be like this. And it must be like that, and it must be this number. But this is a way that we could do it. Then the next one.
Okay, any questions on this one?
Like in terms of recitation on all of these things, sheesh, integrations now, so I think generally we recite this Okay, right. And it sounds like what we normally Okay, I want you to stop me at any point we what I'm saying sounds different to what we normally do, because we need to talk about it. Like why is it different? Next one? sober.
No law he will hamdulillah
ILA in Namo Allahu Akbar is a slight problem here. So the big deal, but sometimes we do the inland law. And then we say who? Allahu Akbar. So you see, now you're reading?
Do you understand the difference between while
ILA in law law?
What masego? One with one Allahu Akbar. And what do we do? The camera system, please, please, who we say who? Allahu Akbar that that isn't correct, but it's a very minor issue. The meaning remains the same. Nothing no damage they whatsoever who Allahu Akbar literally means He is Allah the greatest so it's a good meaning, but it's not
technically correct. The next one we decide three times. So by
no law, here will be a Hamdi Suba.
Now Allah allow the beam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said some beautiful things about this phrase.
It's the last Hadith in Sahih. Muhammad Buhari any any scholar of Deen,
at least in the, in the in the dark room systems when they do the hotter of Sahu body it's a big deal. Right? It's a it's an event. It's basically the graduation event. Right? If you're an alum, the graduation event is whether the main
the main teacher of Hadith show Hadith, or a guest scholar of Hadith would come and narrate the Hadith. That is the last one in the compilation of Imam Al Bukhari. sahih al Bukhari, which is the most authentic compilation of Hadith. So it's a moment this is the last honey with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Kalamata Annie HobbyTown, Illa Rahmani they are two words. They are most beloved to the Most Merciful sappy letter any filmi Zanni I'm I might not be getting the order, right. They are most weighty on the scales hoffy fettuccine. Ali Sani. And they are very, very light on the tongue. So behind Allah, He will be handy, right? So this vicar, these many soon as related
to eight reciting different numbers of times, but look at the meaning of of the three now. Okay, I don't think there's any pronunciation issues. They other than maybe horns did have a heart, that type of thing. But that's okay. That's LAN Hafi. It's a it's a mild era. Because no, that's just
I would call it like a speech impediment. Even some people maybe just can't pronounce a ha. As a ha. excepting the word felt
perfectly fine. But it might just be a difficulty in pronunciation. So
let's just Licious look at the three right and we end up on this in sha Allah. The meanings of all three are simple and straightforward. Right, but profound because it represents our Aqeedah our belief, it's fundamental to our faith. Look at the first one. There is no god worthy of worship except Allah Allah Allah illallah wa Tada alone WADA from the worldwide lash Gary Keller, who he has no partners law who will MOLKO the kingdom belongs to him.
up now, the whole MOLKO the kingdom belongs the wall I will have to end the praise belong to Him. You see why you meet, he gives life he causes death, who I'll actually share encoded and he has power and dominion over all things. That's the first one. The second one, so behind Allah ahi while hamdu Lillahi wa ala ala in Allah, Allah hu Akbar. I think we all know something about this I've got the the individual parts, all of us would know something about the reciting of the Syrah 33 times the SPFL to me story, you know, assistance in your daily chores, but maybe not the ladies actually, because I mentioned this a lot in Jamaica. So let me mention this quickly.
I'm going to fast forward through the story say that Fatima Rhodiola. Anna, who was the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and extremely beloved to him. She experienced a lot of difficulty in her housework. Now what housework not cleaning the house washing the I'm talking about housework, like making bread from wheat to bread, grinding the flour. She had calluses on her hands.
Radi Allahu Allah be pleased.
And she merely wanted some assistance with a household chores. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam had some slaves, captives of war. And they are basically for for our purposes here, I'm just going to refer to them as domestic workers in that context, because they didn't have a very bad system of slavery. I mean, slavery is bad no matter what. But they didn't have ill treatment of slaves that we may see on movies and things like that. So what we know from our history, this is different. So she goes to her father Nabina Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, what wouldn't the father do for his daughter? And she asks, she requests some assistance in this regard.
I don't recall if the prophets wisdom was present they at that moment or not, but when he heard about what she requested, he became angry. So Allahu Allah, Allah, he became angry.
But nonetheless, he went to visit the home on that night, the home of who have his daughter, and who she married to Satan Ali, who's also the cousin of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, right.
And he goes inside the bedroom and he sits on the bed. He can This is the father Salallahu Alaihe, salam, and many says to shall not inform you of something that would be better for you, then assistance in your housework. And then the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them Subhana Allah, and hamdulillah
Allahu Akbar 33 times each and then Allah put 54 times exactly like we do after salah. Exactly like that. But do that at night before you go in sleep with a Nia of the story that you just heard. And this according to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will give you all the assistance in your household chores that you need. And of course, I'm by no means saying that this is specifically for the ladies. I opened up and said that I speak about this often a Joomla right? So men, most women, I mean, men and women can do housework, there's no right and wrong ladies. No, it's a duty of a wife, not in the Shafi Mother No, that's not a duty she does it that saw the compromise.
So that's not what we are saying. Right? We are simply saying that if you need assistance Baraka in your work in your time when you if it if you find things hard, he has the vehicle for you. And then
what does it mean? Perfect is Allah all praises due to Allah there is no God worthy of worship besides Allah Allah is the Greatest and then the last one Subhana Allah he will be handy he perfect is Allah and all praises or he's perfect is Allah the greatest notice and translating super HANA as perfect as opposed to glory be to glory be to Transcendent is actually excellent. This is the first time I'm seeing somebody using
something not blue. I just assumed he was going to say Glory. But Transcendent is the same thing as perfect right in how I'm using it. Allah is far beyond anything we can imagine any imperfections. That's what Subhan Allah really means. Okay. So let's recite it. And we can we conclude on that note.
