00:00:00--> 00:00:42

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh what we're going to be tackling today is the topic which a lot of people have been asking about a lot of listeners have been asking, what are the times of the day of the day when two hour is accepted? So inshallah that is what we're going to focus on today in details, the times of the day when the law is accepted, not just the times of the day, but even the conditions because there are certain conditions a person finds himself or herself in which makes them more acceptable. So, first we will look at the times of the day when is accepted and then we will look at the conditions which was accepted and then we will end up with some of the things

00:00:42--> 00:00:54

which stopped us from being accepted. So I hope you are taking notes inshallah, as there's a lot of information, important information coming our way today, all of which will assist us inshallah, in having our doors accepted.

00:00:56--> 00:01:37

Before we begin a brief reminder of what we covered in a previous episode, that for our viewers to be accepted, we need to have a strong relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to be praying five times a day fulfilling our obligations, trying our best to be good Muslims. No one's perfect, but if we try our best and inshallah Allah Subhana Allah will forgive our our sins and except our doors, and the doors need to be made sincerely and real, do as they should not be ritual was done for the sake of everybody else's making door. No, it needs to be a real door from the heart, which we want to be accepted. We also said that doulas are not accepted overnight. We need to

00:01:37--> 00:02:17

be patient because first Allah subhanho wa Taala tests us, he tests us to see are we just making dua and then when the door is not accepted, we're going to stop all we keep making dua until it is accepted. And one last point before we go into the recommended time to dwell is that sometimes the doula is not accepted in the way that we wanted? Because sometimes what we wanted and what we asked for, is not necessarily what is good for us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala would accept our doula in a different way, by giving us something else or giving us something better, or reserving it to give us something in paradise. So even if we think our door is not accepted, that is not the case that is

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

not the reality.

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

Now, we all want to know what are the times of the day when two hours are accepted? Because we want to make sure that we are making to our at that time, and the most important time of the day for making dua, as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had mentioned is the last third of the night, which we know as the 100th time, the time of tiamo li Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said about the last night of the night. It had these found in both Bukhari and Muslim reported by Abu huraira radi Allahu anhu Our Lord our Rob descends every night in a way to to His Majesty during the last third of the night, to the skies of this world and asks who is making to our to me, so I

00:03:03--> 00:03:11

can respond to him? Who is asking me so that I can give him who is asking for my forgiveness so that I can forgive him?

00:03:12--> 00:03:54

So in this Heidi's are Sula salatu salam tells us that Allah subhanaw taala descends not like our human decisions, but in a way which only Allah knows every truth, His Majesty. And in the last night, Allah asks, who is making dua, I will answer it. So that is definitely definitely a time when your eyes are accepted. And in another Hadees found interim easy and necessary. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said the closest any worshiper can be to his Lord in during the last part of the night. So if you can be amongst those who remember Allah at that time do so. Now we need to stop and think why are Dwyer specifically

00:03:55--> 00:04:07

except at the last one third of the night, what's so special about that time, one of the things we can look at here is that they are very, very few people who make two are at that time of the night.

00:04:08--> 00:04:28

When you come to the last third of the night, humans have three types, those who are indulged in evil at that time, but because we know at that time of the night people are out at the nightclubs in the casinos. And people are involved in see her at that time of the night. robberies, and stealing takes place at that time of the night. So those involved in evil up and doing evil.

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

The majority of humans at that time of the night are sleeping, because we know that's the best time to sleep. That's the time when we get the most sleep. So most of us are asleep. But the a few few worshippers of Allah who are close to Allah subhanho wa Taala and who have a strong sense of taqwa, who spend that time of the night in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And therefore, because they have chosen the one time of the day, when everybody else is either sleeping or indulgence in it

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

They have chosen that time of the day to worship Allah. They do as I accepted.

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

So we can see that this is a very, very important time of the day, someone who wakes up and praise Allah praise the hundreds Allah, this is a sign of a higher level of demand. And this makes it to us worthy of acceptance.

00:05:20--> 00:06:03

In another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and this is reported in Muslim these an hour at night that no Muslim happens to be asking Allah for anything in either this world or the afterlife, except that it will be given to him and this happens every night. So every night there is an hour during the last third of the night. We all do as I accepted all doors and of course it's only those who are praying tahajjud who get this time or those who wake up at night to make dua if we don't have the strength to wake up for tahajjud are we find ourselves needing to wake up at hydrate maybe we should just open our eyes and we do our while in bed because we still make into why

00:06:03--> 00:06:04

that time of the night.

00:06:05--> 00:06:12

inshallah overtime raise ourselves to a level where we played 200 as well. But let's start off with the dua inshallah,

00:06:13--> 00:06:32

another important time it was accepted. And this is something each of us can get is after the design of any of the five daily Sala until the comma. So, after the design is over, if you are sitting in the masjid, waiting for the karma, that is a time to make to

00:06:33--> 00:07:01

and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said about this in Hades pounding a Buddha wouldn't tell me to do acid between the Azad and the karma is not rejected. Therefore make dua at this time. So, to us should be made at the time between Amazon and ikoma. Many of us we hear the Amazon and then we wait until one minute before Salah begins to go to the masjid not realizing we are missing the most important time of the day to make dua.

00:07:02--> 00:07:09

inshallah, let us try make an effort to leave our homes a bit early, go to the masjid early and utilize this time inshallah to make dua.

00:07:11--> 00:07:20

Now, many of us don't realize that dua is also accepted during Salah for many of us Salah has become a ritual and I spoke about this in the first lecture about Surah Fatiha

00:07:21--> 00:07:29

that we have ritualized to refer to hi in the Salah. But if you had to do it properly, the entire solar becomes a form of

00:07:30--> 00:08:02

in fact the Arabic word solar means it has the exact same meaning as but in our religion it refers to the specific solar which we pray. But why does Why did we use the word solid to describe it? This is because this is the best time to make to and this is a act of worship, which is full of different words from the beginning to the end. This tala begins with Surah Al Fatiha, which we are discussing, and we should know this by now the Surah Al Fatiha is a dua

00:08:03--> 00:08:31

and if you remember the Hadith about Surah Al Fatiha and you will remember that this is a dua which is accepted when we do it properly. Now sola, it is the dua about which Allah subhanho wa Taala says that when we say al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen What does Allah reply he says hamadani Abdi, my sleep has pleased me at the end of the Surah Fatiha Allah Subhana Allah says, This is for my servant and he will get whatever he wants.

00:08:32--> 00:08:35

So, this is a dua and we need to make it properly.

00:08:36--> 00:08:41

Another time during the solar winter was definitely accepted is in the search tab.

00:08:42--> 00:08:52

The search there is a time when two hours are accepted. And again, many of us are not familiar with this. But this is something which the professor Larson has told us and which he himself did.

00:08:54--> 00:09:08

Abu huraira reads that the prophets of Allah Islam said, the closest any worshiper can be to his Lord is while he's in such depth, so, increase your two eyes in such that this Hadees is found in Sahil Muslim

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

and there is another Hadith where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described the solar as a whole

00:09:16--> 00:09:46

and when you came to describing the such depth, he said that there is no time when a person is close to Allah into such time. So inshallah we need to take a short break now when we return we will continue discussing the recommended times was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. We stopped, we're looking at the time of day known as sajida that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us, the closest a person gets to Allah subhanho wa Taala is while they are in such awe,

00:09:47--> 00:10:00

and we know from the practice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he would spend so much time in such that the sometimes Ayesha Raja learn how to Touch his feet to see this okay because he would have been in

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

Such that for a long, long period of time.

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

Now we need to think about this and think about our own lives, do we take advantage of the opportunity to make dua in such a while we just up and down, we need to feel the such that we need to feel that closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we put our heads on the ground, we need to feel like we are closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala than we'd ever be in our lives. And when we have that feeling, it's such that then the doors will pour out of our heart

00:10:32--> 00:10:40

that turns the solar into an entirely different experience. It's no longer a ritual, it's not a close connection between us and our Creator.

00:10:42--> 00:11:10

Now, there is a fifth point to discuss here where there is a difference of opinion among the scholars. And this is something which many of you might be thinking about and probably asked to I'm going to discuss it anyway. And that is when you are making during the semester. Can you make dua in English, I know many of us want to know can you make do I English older or can we only make Arabic twice during that time? There are three opinions amongst the scholars on this topic. The first opinion is that

00:11:11--> 00:11:24

do I have to be an Arabic because the Salah has to be in Arabic. The second opinion is that in the form of Salah, it has to be in Arabic, but in the nutfield Salah you can make it in other languages. And the third opinion is in any sort of

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

in the such that you can make dua in any language.

00:11:29--> 00:11:47

I think the first opinion that it has to be in Arabic is the dominant opinion of the Hanafi madhhab. Personally I am of the opinion that the dua can be made in any language in such that Allah knows best This is the opinion of some of my teachers. And the way they had explained it is that

00:11:48--> 00:12:27

dua is universal, Allah subhanho wa Taala would not have made it such that the time window as our most accepted is during the is during a time and only those who know Arabic can make dua. So, therefore, they have the opinion that it can be in any language even though the rest of the Salah has to be in Arabic, Allah knows best This is an area of difference of opinion amongst the scholars. Again, each individual needs to follow the opinion of the Allah who they trust on these issues. And we should respect other opinions as well. Nonetheless, those are the three opinions related to make into out in other languages during the semester.

00:12:29--> 00:12:33

So, during the semester was definitely definitely accepted.

00:12:34--> 00:12:40

And this is even more so during tahajjud. So let's combine this we know during the time of the 100 was accepted

00:12:41--> 00:12:44

and we know that went in such that was accepted.

00:12:45--> 00:12:53

So when one priests tahajjud during the semester of tahajjud to us are definitely accepted.

00:12:54--> 00:13:11

And now we understand why when Rasulullah sallallahu Lisa, Mr. Peter, Jude is such that used to go on for a long, long time because that was a combination of multiple factors that make to us acceptable. So let us inshallah take advantage of this

00:13:12--> 00:13:25

and another time during the Salah when our doors are accepted is towards the end of the Salah. After reciting that the Shahada and salaams opponent or pseudo de la semi Brahim Elisa Lam, at that time

00:13:26--> 00:13:28

was accepted before we make Salam.

00:13:30--> 00:13:41

And this is the region in Attila Musee can Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, Ask meaning at the time and you shall be given Ask and you shall be given

00:13:42--> 00:13:58

and this was mentioned about the time after the Tasha hood before making Salah. Again dear the duel normally is in Arabic, they are specific to us which we can make again those two words are not the only doors you can make at that time you can make other tours as well.

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

Another important time it was accepted is on Juma specifically between the actor and Margaret on the day of Juma

00:14:10--> 00:14:33

Abu regenerated Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said on Friday on Juma there is an hour during which if any Muslim stands in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala in salah and ask Allah for something good, he will be granted his request. So this Hadees which is narrated in Buhari

00:14:35--> 00:14:39

makes it clear that there is definitely an hour on the day of Juma when he was accepted.

00:14:40--> 00:14:56

And we all know about the difference of opinion on this because some of the animosity that refers to the time of Juma itself, some seats of time between the two goodbyes. But the most dominant opinion is that it's between the times of Arthur

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

and Margaret. Why because

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

of another Hadith

00:15:02--> 00:15:18

narrated Abu Dawood and an essay, where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam said Juma has 12 hours, days one hour during which if a Muslim asked Allah, Allah will give it to him. She'll find it during the last hour after.

00:15:19--> 00:15:28

So, this Hadees is more clear and more explicit that it is the last hour after after, that is the time when two was accepted.

00:15:29--> 00:15:33

So inshallah if you want to be on the safe side, we should make dua during all these times

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

when the mob sits down between the footpaths

00:15:37--> 00:15:46

as well as between us to remarket because these are the two strongest opinions on this topic. And there's always no harm in making more

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

and we can do what at both times.

00:15:51--> 00:15:55

Another time when the was accepted is when one finds oneself waking up at night.

00:15:56--> 00:16:06

We are sleeping and suddenly you woke up at night, you're not sure what woke you up, but your eyes open and now you want to go back to sleep. Take the opportunity to make dua.

00:16:08--> 00:16:27

Now, before clocks were invented, then you know when we didn't know whether it's the last third of the night sometimes while laying in the bed, nowadays, you can just look at our clock either way. It's a time into was accepted. You're sleeping your eyes open at 2am you turn around to go back to sleep, use this opportunity to make some dua

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said

00:16:32--> 00:16:37

that whoever wakes up at night and makes two out and says Oh ALLAH forgive me.

00:16:38--> 00:16:50

He makes a dua or he says Allah forgive me he'll be responded to and if he wakes up and he makes will do and eat salad and his Salah will be accepted. This is also in Bukhari. So when one wakes up at night,

00:16:51--> 00:17:05

take it as an opportunity to make dua. Now I know for many of us who are young parents, we have our children waking us up every three hours at night. So when you wake up with a small baby at night, you can make two at a time inshallah that would be an excellent opportunity to make.

00:17:06--> 00:17:35

Another important time for making dua is when drinking some some water. And it most of us are familiar with this. That Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, the water of Zamzam is for whatever it has been drunk for. Meaning if you drink some some water to quench your thirst, it will quench your thirst. If you drink it to heal an ailment, it will heal that ailment. If you drink it to make dua, it will be a means of the dua being accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:36--> 00:17:41

So, maybe inshallah, if you any of us are going for Hajj or Umrah in the near future.

00:17:43--> 00:17:54

Anytime in the future, we should make sure we bring back as much water as we can and keep it for times when you want to make dua or when you want some spiritual healing inshallah.

00:17:56--> 00:18:04

So, during the time of drinking some some water to is also accepted. We know that was accepted in Ramadan

00:18:05--> 00:18:21

means Ramadan comes Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said the doors of mercy are open and the doors of jahannam are closed and the devils are chained up. So that indicates that Ramadan in the time window was accepted. More specifically on Lila procoder towards the definitely accepted

00:18:22--> 00:18:29

and during the Hajj during the Hajj that was accepted as well, specifically on the day of arafah.

00:18:30--> 00:18:42

As I mentioned this a few weeks ago, that's not just for the people at arafa wherever you are in the world on the day of arafat was accepted and if you did not take advantage of that this year, inshallah I hope you do so in the future.

00:18:44--> 00:18:47

Another time when he was accepted is when visiting the sick

00:18:48--> 00:19:12

messala Monterrey says Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, when you visit the sick or those who have passed away and say that which is good, because the angels say mean to whatever you say, and this is reported in Sahih Muslim, so, this refers to both the sick and those who have passed away, only speak good of them, and only say good things for them and for others around them, because the angels will be seeing our mean.

00:19:15--> 00:19:31

Another time interestingly, which was accepted is when it rains Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said in the Hadees narrated by Buddha would to do as a never returned. They do are made when the time for Salah when the song is called

00:19:32--> 00:19:33

and why made when it rains.

00:19:35--> 00:19:41

So raining is also a nice time to make dua and we are getting a lot of rain this month. So that makes it a good month to make.

00:19:43--> 00:19:47

Likewise when we hear the rooster crowing again this is something which many of us are not familiar with.

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

The above regenerated the rasulillah like Sam said, when you hear a rooster crowing, then ask Allah for his bounties for the rooster has seen an angel

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

When you hear a donkey bring in seek protection Allah from Shaytan because the donkey Has she has seen a cheetah

00:20:09--> 00:20:16

This is phonebooth Bukhari and Muslim. So, in this Hadees Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us

00:20:17--> 00:20:22

that when you hear a rooster crowing, it is because it has seen an angel.

00:20:23--> 00:20:34

And when you use a donkey braying, it's because it has seen a gene a cheetah. So at the time of using a rooster crowing, that is the time to make dua because they are angels around.

00:20:35--> 00:20:44

So, if you're walking and you see a rooster during the daytime and you get crowing make dua because that means the angels around and the angels will see are mean to your doors.

00:20:46--> 00:20:56

So, these are some of the main times taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, in which was accepted, very quick recap the 100th time

00:20:58--> 00:21:01

during our solar especially during the sajida

00:21:02--> 00:21:08

did you all have sudo Al Fatiha if we do it sincerely, at the end of our Salah before making Salaam

00:21:09--> 00:21:13

between Esther and Margaret on the Juma as well as between the two code paths and the drama.

00:21:15--> 00:21:18

When waking up at night, when drinking some some water

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

during the month of Ramadan, especially a leader to occur

00:21:24--> 00:21:26

during the days of Hajj especially at arafa

00:21:29--> 00:22:04

when visiting the sick or those who have passed away when it rains, or when a rooster crows, these are amongst the time when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said that once to our will be accepted, I hope we have listed these down and take advantage of these opportunities given to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala each and every one of us have so many doors in our hearts that we want to make. We have so much that we need from Allah subhanho wa Taala none of us can say we are above the need of Allah subhanho wa Taala we always need him

00:22:05--> 00:22:22

to let us take advantage of these two hours. No, besides the time during the was accepted, there are certain conditions that a person can find himself or herself in which assist to us and being accepted. And that is what we are going to discuss next.

00:22:24--> 00:22:47

Because if one can combine between the times when two was accepted, and the condition widthwise accepted, again, there's a double chance of the two are being accepted. So it's not just about taking one of these things and working with it, but trying to do as many as possible at the same time. So we mentioned 100 and you mentioned such the suit is such that after 100 even more chance.

00:22:48--> 00:22:58

Now, what are the what are the conditions with which is accepted as a traveler when someone is a moussaka so what happens if a moussaka priest 100

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

and makes do I during the center of it 100

00:23:03--> 00:23:25

we know that this was during the HUD accepted, they do it during the summer I accepted and it was of a traveler accepted. So this person has a triple chance of his or her daughter's being accepted. So let us look at it from this perspective, where we are trying to combine as many of these things as possible in us so that we can have all of our doors accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:23:27--> 00:23:31

So what are the conditions when dwis are accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:23:32--> 00:24:01

The first condition is if someone is oppressed or wrong, if someone is harming you, ie someone is interfering in one's life and causing one causing oppression to a person, then the law of the oppressed is accepted. Note that the law of the oppressed is accepted against the oppressor. Even if the oppressed is not a Muslim, and the oppressor is a Muslim. Allah subhanho wa Taala is most just

00:24:02--> 00:24:18

Allah subhana wa Tada. When he answers to us, he doesn't even adjust to me. So if a Muslim is unjust towards a non Muslim, in that situation left behind, takes the sight of the non Muslim, Allah subhanaw taala always takes the sight of justice.

00:24:20--> 00:24:35

And this is why Rasulullah sallallahu use them as one that's not to oppress anybody and not to hurt anyone. And he said, fear the dua of he has been wronged or pressed. For it goes up into the sky faster than light.

00:24:36--> 00:24:42

They do I have someone who is oppressed, ascends into the sky faster than the speed of light.

00:24:45--> 00:24:51

This is narrated by Abdullah Omar found in the Heidi's collection about Hakeem and it is authentic.

00:24:53--> 00:24:57

Likewise, in the more famous Hadith narrated in the Muslim from Ahmed

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

Rasulullah sallallahu

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

Some said, fear the doula of the one who has been oppressed,

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

even if he is a disbeliever because there is no veil between it and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Again Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, fear the doula of the one who has been oppressed, even if he is a disbeliever. Because there is no veil, between these two are and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Meaning that Allah will definitely accept the dua of the oppressed person, even if he is a disbeliever. So be careful. Many of us think that, oh, he's not a Muslim.

00:25:39--> 00:25:58

So I don't need to worry. You need to worry. All of Allah's creation, you need to be good to Muslim or non Muslim, human or non human, it doesn't matter. We need to be good to all of Allah subhanho wa Taala is creation. Because they are all created by Allah, they all have rights over us.

00:25:59--> 00:26:08

Even those who are not Muslim, even things which are not human, everything has rights over the believer. So let us be wary of this and not oppress anybody.

00:26:10--> 00:26:13

When we return, we will look at more conditions when one is accepted.

00:26:14--> 00:26:57

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. Now we're looking at the conditions when the was accepted. And one of the questions which has come out is that why sometimes oppressed people are making the wild but we don't see the dua being accepted. The good example of this is what's happening today in Syria, and Palestine, and other countries where Muslims are being oppressed, and they're making dua for help. Why is the doula not being accepted? Again, we go back to what you mentioned earlier, when we say a doula will be accepted, it does not mean it will be accepted immediately. Nor does it mean it will be accepted in the way that we want. Sometimes, what we want

00:26:58--> 00:27:03

is not what's best for us. So for example, if somebody is making dua,

00:27:04--> 00:27:10

that this situation in the country changes, and they get to live a peaceful life.

00:27:11--> 00:27:13

And a few days later, that person is killed

00:27:14--> 00:27:16

by an oppressor in a bomb blast.

00:27:17--> 00:27:19

In that situation,

00:27:20--> 00:27:28

has his door been rejected? Let's think about it islamically this person who has been killed without any just reason

00:27:29--> 00:27:36

he is a matter, all of his sins are forgiven and he will go to Paradise forever inshallah.

00:27:37--> 00:27:57

So he is going to be living in peace forever. So his dua has been accepted, but not in the way that we expected. So again, we can't see that they do what is not being accepted, sometimes alleged to be handler is delaying it until the right moment. Something Allah subhanaw taala is replacing it with that which is better than gender and martyrdom.

00:27:59--> 00:28:29

Sometimes, Allah Subhana Allah is waiting for us to change, before accepting our dua. Allah subhanaw taala has told us in the Quran, that Allah will never change the condition of a people until they change themselves. Meaning that sometimes we find ourselves in difficult situations, and we make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala for help. But we don't see the help coming. We need to take it as an opportunity to

00:28:30--> 00:28:43

introspect and to look into ourselves and see what am I doing wrong, there might be stopping my door for being accepted, could very well be that outdoors and not being accepted, because we are not practicing Islam properly.

00:28:45--> 00:28:49

So, again, Allah subhanaw taala has said that he will accept the door.

00:28:50--> 00:29:05

Sometimes he's waiting for us to change. Sunday, Allah Subhana, Allah is delaying you to the right moment. Sometimes he's answering it in ways that we did not expect. We need to stop thinking in a linear way, and thinking in the accurate way in a more real in a more Islamic way.

00:29:06--> 00:29:08

That when a Muslim dies,

00:29:09--> 00:29:19

they are martyrs and they go to Paradise in these oppressive situations. So you cannot see the duel was not accepted because such a person would be in paradise forever, and what more could they want?

00:29:21--> 00:29:27

So Allah subhanaw taala knows what's best for us. And sometimes the answers are do us in ways other than what we expected.

00:29:28--> 00:29:41

So we mentioned how the oppressed persons to work is accepted, even if he is a disbeliever. In another ID socialism said even if he's a sinner, because he said he's against himself, but you are oppressing him.

00:29:43--> 00:29:46

So anybody who is accepted in that situation.

00:29:47--> 00:29:51

Likewise, somebody who finds himself in a very difficult situation in this world

00:29:52--> 00:30:00

and the time of trial and difficulty, Allah subhanaw taala accepted was even if they're not Muslim. We find the example of this in the

00:30:00--> 00:30:35

Quran of people who worship other than Allah Subhana Allah, the commercial, and then they go out into the ocean and a storm breaks out. And they fear that the ship is going to be sunk so they make dua to Allah alone to save them. And Allah saved him. Allah Subhana Allah mentioned after the save the return tradition. The point is that these people during the difficult time Allah subhanaw taala, accepted the dua, even though they were worshiping other than Allah. So even more chance of those of us who worship Allah alone to have our doors accepted during difficult times.

00:30:37--> 00:30:42

Likewise, after calamity, if a person shows suffer,

00:30:43--> 00:30:47

the reward for this is the was being accepted in a major way.

00:30:48--> 00:31:06

What is the Rasulullah saw some say about this a very interesting story about this, narrated by Omar Salama masala, who was the who he knows to be the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, she was not always his wife. Before that. She was married to one of the great Sahaba known as Abu Salah Raja

00:31:08--> 00:31:13

and Abu Salah Rajan who during the Medina period of our Islamic history, he passed away.

00:31:15--> 00:31:38

And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he taught me salah and said, there is no Muslim who is afflicted by a calamity. And he says in early Allah He was in LA he raggio to allow we belong into him your return, Oh Allah. Give me the reward of being patient for this calamity, and cracked me something better than it

00:31:39--> 00:31:45

was to LA LA City, no Muslim who does this except that Allah will give him something better than it.

00:31:47--> 00:31:51

Oh, my Salah Maria who narrates that when her husband Abu Salah passed away.

00:31:52--> 00:32:16

She made this up. But she kept thinking in her heart who's better than Abu Salah because she loved the husband so much. She couldn't imagine marrying a man who was better than Abu Salah. Allah subhanaw taala answered the door. And she ended up marrying Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam, himself and becoming one of the mahato in the mothers of the believers, and the woman the paradise.

00:32:18--> 00:32:26

So this is a very, very important time to make dua, when something bad happens in our life. That is one of the ultimate tests of Allah subhanaw taala

00:32:27--> 00:32:51

do we react negatively? And see why me? Why did Allah do this to me and things like that? Or do we react as believers and see in Allah, He will deny the urogen to allow we belong to Him He will return you make dua to Allah subhanaw taala to help us through it, and to give us the strength to overcome our difficulties. And to replace it to that which is better than it.

00:32:53--> 00:33:05

That is the way of the Sahaba Rasulullah lolly Salaam that is the way of sobor. Remember, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam has told us the server is at the beginning of the calamity.

00:33:06--> 00:33:10

If something bad happens, and after a few months, we begin to accept it.

00:33:11--> 00:33:25

Everybody can do that. That's not stubborn saga is to accept it at the moment when things go wrong. When something happens, which we don't want to happen in our lives, something terrible in this worldly sense happens to us at that moment.

00:33:26--> 00:33:29

To Be patient and to accept Allah scholar.

00:33:31--> 00:34:15

It doesn't mean you don't be sad. You do be sad, but you don't say that which is displeasing to Allah. The best example of this is when the prophets too low Samson Ibrahim passed away. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was beating him and tears were coming out of his eyes. And this hour as the owner of Sousa Ukraine Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam replied, the eyes cry, and the heart feel sad. But you will not say anything except what is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala that is how the believer he acts at the time of difficulty. There's nothing wrong with crying with our eyes. There's nothing wrong with feeling sad you know hot but don't ever see anything displeasing to Allah. See inner Lila

00:34:15--> 00:34:24

here in the alley Raja see all over la Give me the patience to overcome this difficulty. See, Oh Allah subhanaw taala helped me get through this difficult time.

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

That is the way of Islam.

00:34:28--> 00:34:31

So at times of difficulty and calamities if we are patient,

00:34:33--> 00:34:35

then inshallah our doors will be accepted.

00:34:36--> 00:34:49

Another time when the was accepted is when traveling and we mentioned the story that it was of the traveler, I accepted. So if you are traveling make a lot of dua and if you know somebody else who is traveling, ask him to make to offer you.

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

Likewise, the one of the parents I accepted. This is very important to do is have the parents accepted whether they make do

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

For the child or against the child, this is why

00:35:04--> 00:35:29

every parent should bear in mind, don't ever say anything wrong to your child. Don't ever make dua against your child, because the device of the parents are accepted. Even when your child is being naughty, say, Oh Allah make my child pious, because you do as accepted, you do as accepted. This is a position that Allah has given you to be a parent position we do ours are accepted

00:35:30--> 00:35:47

to the duals of the parents, whether it is for or against the children are accepted. So always make dua for our children. And likewise, we as the youngsters should always do things to make our parents want to make to us for us, and they will do things to make them want to make to work against us.

00:35:50--> 00:35:55

Likewise, just like the dwis of the parents are accepted for the children

00:35:56--> 00:36:13

to do was of the children accepted for their parents, especially after they passed away. We know this from the Hadees of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam where he said, when a person dies, all of his actions end except three, any sacajawea, which he left behind, meaning continuous charity,

00:36:15--> 00:36:34

any knowledge which he taught other people, and they continue to benefit from, and the pious child that he left behind, that makes to offer him. So God is clear that if you left behind a pious child, as a child makes to offer you to us will be accepted. So let us raise our children upon piety.

00:36:35--> 00:36:51

Brothers and sisters, each of us are going to pass away one day, we need to think about what are we leaving as the next generation are we training our children to be righteous leaders of the believers? Are we leaving them to live whatever life they want, even if it's an Islamic,

00:36:52--> 00:37:20

we want to leave behind youngsters as a new generation, who are even better Muslims than us. We want them to be even better Muslims in us, we want them to make dua for us when we passed away, we want them to help others and to improve the condition of the oma. And this doesn't come about by chance. This only comes about by a effort on our part, to reform our children to make the therapy and to raise them to be righteous Muslims.

00:37:21--> 00:37:29

So let us raise righteous children, the type of children who will make two offers after we pass away and those doors will be accepted.

00:37:31--> 00:37:34

Another person whose door is accepted is someone who is fasting.

00:37:36--> 00:37:41

The fasting persons to us are accepted. And we all are very familiar with this.

00:37:44--> 00:37:52

Likewise, someone who is performing the hydro O'Meara do it properly did was accepted. So inshallah we go for Hajj O'Meara in the future.

00:37:53--> 00:38:03

Take a dualist make sure you take the wireless thing, make the write down every door that you want to make taking with you and make it here because that is a time when two wires are accepted.

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

And one of the most important to us, or conditions we otherwise accepted. And I want everyone to pay attention to this one is when you make the wire for somebody else when they're not around.

00:38:18--> 00:38:20

You think about somebody, somebody who

00:38:22--> 00:38:34

doesn't even know that you making dua for them, but you make a good dua for them. This is a sign of Islamic brotherhood. This is a sign of a true believer, someone who loves to they practice what they love for themselves.

00:38:35--> 00:38:47

And about this Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, there is no Muslim who makes dua for another Muslim in his absence, except that the angels will say, and for you to

00:38:48--> 00:39:02

meaning there, whatever do you make for another Muslim? In the absence? The angels make the same to offer you know, sometimes you see but that person doesn't make dua for me. So what don't you want the angels to make dua for you instead.

00:39:03--> 00:39:44

Be good to everyone, even to those who are bad to us. Make dua Oh Allah make him pious, Allah make her righteous, or Allah guide them, Allah make them better people. And you are making that dua for those who are harming you. That in itself is a source of reward. On top of that, the angels are making the same to offer you so this is a very, very important to our to make, that you make dua for people when they're not around. And this is something which I spoke about recently on Facebook, that we find a lot of people saying make dua for me, is a very common theme and make dua for me. We all say yes, but seriously, think about how many of us actually make to offer that person. How many of

00:39:44--> 00:39:56

us when someone said make dua for me, we went home we made to offer them or we will cover tahajjud time we do offer them or if that time we may do offer them or no such that we may do offer them

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

when someone tells us to make to offer them. Let's take it serious

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

It's not just words to be passed around. This is something which can benefit both you and that person in both worlds. So next time when someone says make dua for me, take the person's name and make dua

00:40:14--> 00:40:39

I personally like to keep a record of all the people who've asked me to make dua for them so I can inshallah remember them by name, because it gets difficult to remember everybody but by name, but we should make an effort because not only is the door accepted for that person, but the accepted for you as well. So if you make into our for somebody else, that supernote Allah grants him the best of both worlds, the angels are making that tool for you as well.

00:40:42--> 00:40:48

Likewise, you do have someone who always remembers Allah subhanho wa Taala is also accepted.

00:40:49--> 00:41:02

And the duar of adjust to ruler is also accepted why adjust ruler, because look at the world today look around at the world today you will realize that majority of people will put into a position of power

00:41:03--> 00:41:06

they become oppressive or abusive or they must use that power

00:41:07--> 00:41:11

adjust to rulers a ruler who is truly just this is a sign of taqwa.

00:41:12--> 00:41:18

And this is something which is very difficult to do. And so, such a person to was accepted as well.

00:41:19--> 00:41:43

So, these are some of the conditions which can assist our doors to be accepted again, just a recap of that, if someone is oppressed, it was accepted. If someone is in a difficult circumstance it was accepted. After something bad happens if one is patient wants to was accepted. It was of the traveler that was the first thing person to do was have parents that was of children

00:41:45--> 00:41:48

did Why did you make June hydrometer

00:41:49--> 00:42:31

did why duar you make for someone when they are not around. All of these are accepted by Allah subhana wa tada and the dual of adjust ruler is also accepted. So these are the conditions in which was accepted. We'll take a short break now when we return we'll recap on this verse of the Quran Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. We are concluding our Tafseer of verse four of Surah Fatiha. iaca now Buddha can step in, you will only worship and you alone we asked for help. We spent one week looking at the concept of worship and what does it mean to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone? We spent another episode looking at what does it mean to make dua to Allah alone and what are

00:42:31--> 00:42:37

the etiquettes of dua and today we looked at what are the times and conditions in which one is accepted.

00:42:38--> 00:42:54

I want to close off by quickly mentioning some of the things which stopped to offer being accepted so that we can inshallah stay away from these things. And the first The most important is haram sources of income or haram food. And I mentioned this Hadees a few weeks ago, we

00:42:56--> 00:42:57

always considered a traveler

00:42:58--> 00:43:28

who was lost and disheveled and dusty, raised his head to the sky and said oh my lord, oh my lord and made dua. But his food was haram his drink was haram and his clothes were Haram. So how could it be answered? this hadith is very clear, that if our wealth our sources of income are haram or if our food is haram, or anything which we entering our bodies with is haram. Then we should not expect Allah Subhana Allah to answer to us even if we have the other conditions fulfilled.

00:43:29--> 00:43:46

Unfortunately, we live in a time where many of us are not weary of our sources of income, whether they are halal or haram. We look for loopholes we see no is that Haram is just macro or the difference of opinion. We need to really think about this. This is a very, very important topic.

00:43:47--> 00:43:51

Having haram income is so severe, that ones to us are not accepted.

00:43:53--> 00:44:22

So it's we shouldn't take it lightly. We rather live a simpler life and earn this. But know that Allah subhanaw taala loves us and he's pleased with us, then be greedy for wealth and the speed of light in the process. At the end of the day. However much wealth we are meant to make, we will make it because our risk has already been predetermined Allah subhanho wa Taala The only thing that we choose is whether we earn it in a halal or haram way.

00:44:24--> 00:44:37

That's something we need to firmly believe in that what we are going to earn. We will get it one way or the data because it's written for us, you know, our choices, do we get that money in the hallway or harami

00:44:38--> 00:45:00

we need to focus on getting it on the hallway. And sometimes we don't see how for all our grants molecules to those who fear Him and whoever has fear of Allah, Allah will put the movie out and provide for them from places they do not expect. This is clearly mentioned in Surah talaaq and this is something we should sincerely believe in. So haram income stops, too.

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Watch me accepted

00:45:02--> 00:45:14

likewise excessive since excessive since top one to watch for being accepted. Let's stay away from sins as much as possible whenever we do slip up and make mistakes and common sense seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala and move on to

00:45:16--> 00:45:21

another thing which stops us from being accepted in being hasty wanting your door to be accepted immediately.

00:45:23--> 00:45:35

If you are if we are like this then this actually prevents the door accepted. Likewise, giving up stop making if someone starts making to answer my doors are not being accepted, that stops they do offer being accepted.

00:45:36--> 00:45:44

Another thing which will prevent our door from being accepted is if you make to offer something Haram, Allah obviously will not accept that to work. So

00:45:46--> 00:45:51

these are just some of the things which stopped being accepted. I'm not going to go into much more details about that.

00:45:52--> 00:45:58

The we need to focus inshallah, on developing a strong relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:45:59--> 00:46:03

We have reached our conclusion of verse four of Surah Fatiha

00:46:04--> 00:46:26

what we have learned from the first four verses, the first three verses describe to us who Allah is. And the fourth verse describes to us, what should be our relationship to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, if one understands the first four verse to serve it, how you understand who our Creator is,

00:46:27--> 00:46:28

and how we should

00:46:29--> 00:46:39

deal with Allah subhanho wa Taala that in that we should worship him only ask of him only we should submit to Him, Islam submission.

00:46:40--> 00:47:17

So we understand that Allah is probably Allah mean, the Lord of the Universe, Nothing happens without his world, that Allah is r Rahmani Raheem, he is most merciful. anything good that we see. So Allah subhanho wa Taala the Allah is molecule Medina, Master of the Day of Judgment, that we will be answerable to him for every deed that we do. And we understand that Yakubu you will only worship there is no room in Islam for worshipping anyone besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. What you're kind of studying and you will only ask for help is no room in Islam for making dua to anyone besides Allah.

00:47:18--> 00:48:00

With that hamdulillah we come to the last few verses of Surah Fatiha, which we will begin discussing next week. Starting with Dina Scirocco, stocking the door. The first four verses with a description of Allah and the last three verses are dua to Allah. The most important two are that we can never make the dua for guidance. So we will look at this dua inshallah, in details over the next few weeks, what is meant by guidance to the straight path, what is guidance, what is the straight path? Who are those who Allah has favored? Who are those who are allies angry word and who are those who have gone astray? We will look at each of these topics in detail over the next few weeks inshallah,

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

as we come closer to the conclusion of autopsy of the most important tool of the Quran Surah Fatiha with that I would like to conclude for today, I will see you all next week inshallah for tuxedo verse five Surah Fatiha Jazakallah Pharaoh Aqua Allah and hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
