Salam O Allah, tala barakato
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. I mean, what on earth he was happy about. So inshallah we're going to be speaking about da and r is the weapon of the believer. It is something that no one can stop you from doing at any time at any given moment you can make the ATO Allah azza wa jal, it can be done anywhere, it can be done any time, whether you're in a state of bajada or not. And during times of peace during times of war during times of difficulty, during times of ease, in sujood, while you're standing while you're sitting while you're laying down. And the greatest thing is that no one can ever stop you from
making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala will begin with
a question that the companions asked the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they said they're asking the processor is Allah subhanaw taala close to us phenomenology. He's close to us so that we can speak to him meaning and almost like whisper and speak softly to him? Or is he far phonology that we have to yell out to him and call out to Him? And Allah subhanaw taala response to this question. And we know the ayat that are speaking about da Allah azza wa jal says, What either said, okay, buddy, Annie, for any Caribbean Wuji without a die, either done. And if my servants asked you concerning me, I am close to them. I respond to the color or the supplication of the color when he calls upon
me. But we all know this verse, but it's really amazing if you contemplate the way this verse is worded and phrased Allah subhanaw taala many times the companions or even the Jews would come and ask the question, and then he would say yes, aluna can they asked you about Polish say, and he gives him the answer.
Yes or no.
They ask you about Aurora, polar Raman umbrella be say the row is from my Lord. So now, they asked you about a question. They asked you about a question say to them this, but when it comes to the Allah subhanaw taala worded it in a very different way. He didn't say if they asked you or when they asked you, he said when my servant asked you about me when I said okay, a baddie, and he then he doesn't say, Tell them Allah subhanaw taala says for in Neale, Karima ouji Buddha, da da da, which is really amazing. I am close, the response comes from Allah subhanaw taala himself with no quarrel with no go and convey this or that. Why? To show us how close he is upon to Allah when it comes to
da and Subhan Allah. Despite this magnificent wording and the way this is worded, people still make effort and go a long distance, to make dua to Allah through someone else. Someone who is dead in a grave somewhere far away and they take the bus or they take their car all the way to that person. Well, Allah said to them, I'm close, and he said it to them directly himself. subhana wa Tada. So that's the benefit of seeing the fact that you're close to Allah that you can ask Allah azza wa jal at any given time at any given moment. Allah subhanaw taala says,
we'll call a Buddha only as he blocked him. And your Lord said, Ask me and I will respond to you. I will answer you asked me and I will answer the only StG Blackcomb is to Java, the response to your da Allah subhanaw taala also says what Allah has a smell has no further Oh who be behind and to Allah are the most sublime names so ask them using these names.
We see another great Howdy. This Hadith is Sahih Hadith narrated in the book of a tirmidhi Abu huraira or the Allahu anhu He says, Carlos sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Malema yes and Illa yo Baba Ali manlam Yes, Allah Yahoo Baba Ali, whoever doesn't ask Allah, Allah will be angered with him.
Is this amazing or what? Whoever doesn't ask Allah, Allah will be angered with him. Hello, be angry with you. If you don't ask him. You have to ask Allah azza wa jal, you should ask Allah azza wa jal and if you don't ask him this, doesn't this show you? How generous Allah subhanaw taala is that if you don't ask him, he's angered with you. And if you ask him 1000 times 10,000 times he doesn't become angered because you asked him. And this is not how human beings are correct? If someone who had been asked you something, and they keep asking you what happens after what what happens to you when someone keeps asking you a question. So you tell someone I'm going to the bookstore, what do
you need? Get me this book. Okay.
Could you get make sure you get me that book? Please?
Don't forget to give me the book. I'll get you the book. I'm going in a little bit. Two minutes later. Yeah, he gave me the book. Okay. Yeah, give me the book. But make sure you give me that book. I'll send you a text right now. So you don't forget to get me the book. What happens after a little bit? Hello? Yeah, yeah, I'm not going to the bookstore.
Forget it, you get angered, but not Allah Subhana. Allah, we don't like an Allah to his creation. But Allah is so generous that if you don't ask him he gets upset. Some people even if they're generous, if you don't ask them 100 I'll give it to someone else or whatever. But a lot of you, you don't ask him and he gets angered with you. Another great Hadith in Sahih tirmidhi, in the book of Deuteronomy, and certainly a Buddha would as well.
And maybe Salam Salam said a DA who La Banda. Basically the Hadith means that the supplication is the essence of worship, the essence of worship. And in another Hadith, of Baba Baba,
the best of Eva is the best of Eva is to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala. Another Hadith narrated by Ahmed and it is as well as narrated by said man in Farsi, where the process lm says in Allah ha ha Yoon Karim.
Allah subhanaw taala Hi, man, hi, yah Nia study, which means what? And we don't have an exact word. But yes, that is a combination of being shy, being bashful, being modest, a combination of that type words is Hadith going to go? How can Allah Subhana Allah, the Creator of the heavens of the earth, be happy have higher from someone who is this individual? What is the situation where Allah azza wa jal, the master of the heavens and the earth is going to have higher in a situation in Allah hi Yun carry generous yesterday either Raja Raja de la hora de euro, Euro de Houma. cifran Ha, ha, thank you, Annie, a loss of how to honor
your stay here and he has this higher if the Raja Raja is if the man lifts up. And of course I did like this will apply to the woman automatically. If a man puts his hands up, okay puts his hands up, that they will return empty handed and if a man puts his hands up, Allah hates that your hands returned empty handed, that means a low will definitely give you something or somewhere or at some time, you will definitely get something because Allah is shy that you put your hands up, and you return them without him giving you something. And if they told you there was a human like this, you go to him and there's no way you go back home empty handed, or lie, there'll be lines and lines and
lines in front of his home lines in front of his home. Allah subhanaw taala is like this. And so when you hear it like this, what is your conclusion? What do you do? You know, what does when you when you have higher and you give, like Sometimes a person might come to you. And you know, they're lying. And they're lying to you. And it's clear, they're lying. Their story is messed up full of holes, they look like a liar, their faces, I'm lying.
And you know they're lying. And what do you do? You still give them Why? Because if you felt shy and ashamed, and a little too shy to send them away, so you give them you understand, someone is lying to you and you know they're lying, or you know, they're a liar in the community. But out of whack, they came into your home and they asked you could you please don't lie. You know, people swear a lot what that means. Yeah, well, let me tell you, we'll keep swearing, I'm not lying, but I will accuse you of lying. Because you're a liar saying that. And you know, they're lying, but because of HIPAA, you give them because of your shame and shy now to not let them turn out or go out of your home
empty handed. So you give them something. Yeah. And what Allah we don't like and I loved his creation. But imagine Allah Subhana Allah also hates so this person he had lied to you and you still gave them because of this higher so far be it from someone to feel because of their sins. Also, Allah won't give me because I committed since no, Allah hates that your hands are turned down empty handed, your hands dropped down with Allah not giving you anything. Even if you send me he'll give you just like that person lied and the generous man on earth gave him you sin, and he will still respond to you and he'll still give you hair. So then why is it that they would be delayed then why
does that give people immediately people put their hands up and they get it immediately since Allah hates for your hands to go down empty handed. And that can be with the wisdom that is that remains with Allah subhanho wa Taala could be with a wisdom that remains with him and sometimes by doing
laying this act of worship the person and delaying the, the response of the DA, the person's life will change the person's life will completely change, that they sinned against Allah azza wa jal, and now they keep making dua, or they have a problem in their life. And they keep asking Allah for it in this process, and in the time it took to the door to be responded to perhaps it was two months, in these two months, this person will completely change because they're in dire need of Allah xojo. So what do they do in these two months, in these two months, they first every other day, they get up and play, pray, and the last third of the night, they make long sujood they pray with
for sure. They're always making the kavala always making stuff or staying away from things that are haram staying away from saying things that are haram looking at things that are Haram, because at time of time of calamity, you get close to Allah azza wa jal, and Allah might delay it enough so that this becomes part of this person's lifestyle. Now, he is like completely changes him extol. But he becomes a better person. And we'll let him brother john, just yesterday, like yesterday, I met a brother in another city. And he was telling me and he didn't tell me the details. He said he committed a sin. And his life is miserable because of the sin. But he's telling me how he's
constantly constantly making, and Vicar and preamp and all kinds of things. And so in the end, if he would just realize that, that sin, look, it was a bad thing, but look at all the hair that came through as a result of it. Perhaps if you didn't commit that sin, you would still be doing what you used to do, not praying, not caring about the deen. So we trust in the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala we trust in the wisdom of Allah azza wa jal. So that's why possibly sometimes a DA might be delayed, Allah will not give it to you instantly. And the idea isn't for you to get it instantly like that. But so what if then I asked Allah azza wa jal, and I put my hands down, and Allah hates
that my hands are returned, empty, and then nothing happens. months, maybe even years, nothing happens. So where does this response go? Where does it go? And Nabi sallallahu Sallam he explained, it goes to one of three possible places Carlos Lhasa, LEM Emma, and used to Java who fit dunya for any either it's one of three places one is given to him in this dunya he's asking Allah I asked for this, and it's given to him either the next week or the next day or in a year, but he's given what he wanted, what he asked for Allah gives it to him in this dunya and that's one way to do it is answered another way.
Oh, a yakou fan who shall run bidra or that Allah will push away some kind of evil with this da that they used to make, they would make some kind of evil was coming towards this person, but because of the law, it was pushed away. And it could be another type of harm or it could be a worse harm. Because in the visa law silom also said in the famous Heidi, now your mother in law, the only thing that will turn away the father the decree of Allah is
so someone for example, the decree was he will get let's say it would add the below man look protect all of you let's say cancer at age 35 or something. And this man from age 27 he's Yeah, Allah give me good healthy Allah keep diseases away from Ya Allah give me good health. So then this, this cat, this this illness that was coming to him at age 35. It's it meets with his daughter, they clash. And it sends away the coder the decree, it sends away the bad decree. The problem is brothers is that we are not four sided. When it comes to these things, Allah knows the future. And in the end, he gives us what is good for us, because a lot of times you make the law.
And maybe you're asking for something that's not good for you, and you don't know the future, you think it's good for you. And I think every single one of us in this room has experienced that before, where in the past you were asking for something and maybe five, six years later you realize that 100 Allah, Allah didn't respond to my da, because if he would have responded to my diet, it would have taken me down a path in my life that I would never get out of. I think every single one of us has an experience like that correct. But so Allah azza wa jal knows that when you're asking him, ultimately, what do you want for yourself, you want hair for yourself. So if there's no hair
and this item, a little push it away from you, it's that simple. So but we said the foresightedness need two people for people if they can only realize what possible or potential other good happened. So a man for example, His father is ill.
And he keeps making Darfur. His father keeps making dawn for six years, seven years. His father is still ill, and he's not cured. The problem is that we are impatient. So this person will complain. I've been asking a lot to kill my father for seven years, and a lot hasn't cured him. They become impatient, but if there were four sided, perhaps your father was going to die six years ago, but because of your dog
Allah extended his life to man in the end what it means. What do we mean it's extended his life, meaning ultimately, Allah, in love and my force, had decreed that because of your diet, it's known that because of your diet he was going to be his life will be extended under six years. This person Allah has been so generous to him. He loved his father remain alive for six years, these six years that were his father remained alive, were expiation for his sin. He got to see his family, they got to enjoy their time with him, and meet him and laugh with him. He got to see his grandchildren. So but the person is, alerted him such a great blessing and a favor, and yet he's impatient. I've been
asking a lot for seven years. And look, my father still ill if you only know six years ago, he was gonna die, but your da kept him for another six years. If only we can be four sided like that. Or someone will keep making dua to Allah, Allah helped me relieve me of my debts. Yeah, Allah relieves me of my debts. And for years, his debts are right there. Five years, his debts are right there. So the person says, What is this, I asked Allah azza wa jal, this is the impatient person. And this is the person with no foresight, and this is the person with little trust in Allah xojo. I asked Allah for five years, and my debt still remained as is. But so upon Allah, perhaps your debt would have
increased. And Allah kept it as is. Some people, their debts increase over the years, your debt didn't increase because of your da, or some people that have debts with people, and your debtor is impatient. And they always come and knock on your door. And every time you see them, you know, you want to change the street, and you don't want to escape from their eyesight from their sight. And Allah made your debtors patient because of your da. So instead of hounding you, or knocking on your door constantly, they don't bother you, they might meet you and say, Take your time. So you're thinking my, my debts are still there. But Allah answered your da, by keeping the debtor patient
with you, or by not having them increase these debts, if only we could be four sided.
So, or it could be anything else. And it could be that someone is asking Allah who is really in need of 1000 pounds, and he keeps asking a lot for 1000 pounds, and he doesn't get the 1000. But a lot of verts or pushes away another harm that would have cost him more than that, or could have cost him eight or seven times more than that, or another issue. So perhaps he's still in need of the 1000. But another illness was pushed away from him, another terminal illness was pushed away from him. And this person, instead of being thankful and trusting that in the end, this doctor went somewhere, is angered and not satisfied with a Aguila. So then that means the DA, could you make a DA? And the
answer can be given to you. And you might get what you wanted, right here in the dunya. Or perhaps you don't get exactly what you wanted. But some similar harm, or a greater harm is pushed away because of your da, or the third thing, it's given to you on Yom Okayama, on the Day of Resurrection. So on the Day of Resurrection, and everyone knows their deeds, their pile of good deeds is in front of them and their small bad deeds and Charlotte are in front of them. And suddenly they get mount a mountain of good deeds added to their good deeds, like where did I get this mountain from? Where is this from? And it is told these are all the two hours that you made in the
dunya that we're not, we're not responded to all that every day
that you made in the dunya that were not responded to now you're getting them pure gold now, you're getting them in good deeds added to your skill on the Day of Judgment, and you know the value of one person on the Day of Resurrection.
So, what the person what will happen, what will be the reaction of people, when they get all the data that was unanswered in the dunya? What will they wish for? They will wish I wish none of my diary was was ever responded to in the dunya. See in that world in the next life, they have better understanding in this life, we want things we want to be comfortable in this dunya we want things to our dog to be responded to, and so on and so forth. But in the next life, they'll see the value of this draw that has not responded to at coming as good deeds. And they will wish that every single dollar they made in the dunya would not have been answered just so they can get them in there.
So that means that you win, it's a win win situation, you will never lose when you make the auto laws with you. You never lose. It's a win win situation. The companions are the llama and Han were magnificent people. And when they understood this concept, they just said something simple. They said a simple phrase that shows they truly understood it. They said he then fell nuclear e then for nuclear. If that's the case, if it's as you described the auto sort of law where it goes to one of these three places and every one of them is a benefit.
Either I get what I want, that's great, or I get some some worse harm or a similar harm pushed away. And that's wonderful. Or I get it on the day of judgment and I'll be so happy and even more pleased with it on the Day of Judgment, then we should make a lot of isn't fun look there.
And the process of settling when they said that, he said, Allahu Akbar.
That's it, he was pleased that they got it so well. And this is the same concept that we understand. So are we going to look there? Are we going to now Excel and access and making dua to Allah azza wa jal or not.
Now when Allah subhanaw taala, the st. Java when Allah responds to your da, there's a difference between the the COBOL and 10 feet. Yeah, and when Allah accepts your da is one thing. And the 10 feet that are actually happening is, are the response actually coming is a different thing. Moose and heroin addict Mr. Nam, they made out to Allah, both of them together, they're making da and heroin saying amin and Allah Subhana Allah says that I accept your da and When did it happen? 20 years after that date. The prophets Allah La Silla made the law against some of the leaders of the Quraysh. And when the DA was accepted, the COBOL came, but when is it going to be implemented? years
later on after the Battle of butter, this door was made in Mecca. And these people were killed in the Battle of butter. It came years later. So Allah might accept your law, but not do it or implemented immediately. And that is with the knowledge of Allah azza wa jal and due to the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala we don't dictate when something happens that is up to Allah subhanaw taala
in the midst of a lot of Selim is showing us ways to make the art so that it will be responded to by Allah azza wa jal Carlos salatu salam o De La Hoya and to move in on a Java Aloha, we're going to move on to build a job, make data Allah while you are certain of the response and you you're sure that Allah will use the Jeep they will he will respond to you.
Well Allah and Allah Allah esta g boo, Yanni do I mean you can be involved in LA hin and know that Allah does not respond to a DA from a heart that is Ruffin. Yanni, he lists and occupied with something else. Alleged is not accepted to and from a heart that is he lists occupied with something else. So ask Allah one more time ask Allah while you're certain that he will give you some people asking
Allah, Allah just Yes, I'm just saying this Hmm. It doesn't look like it's gonna happen but I'm saying it. Yeah. And then the heart is somewhere else they want he wants to leave he wants to go he was just let me say it so
but you must apologize he doesn't respond from a heart like this. That's heedless, that's not even paying attention. You have to be with a lie and you're paying attention with a lot and you're certain that alone will respond to you. So this is from the etiquettes of the author.
the the scholars say you make the out to Allah azza wa jal in the time of difficulty and in the time of ease so it's not like in the time of difficulty you calling upon Allah and it's a familiar voice in the heavens, your voice, and then the time of ease you locked up everything is okay. And why should I ask him? I don't have a problem. But that's the only time you run to a low and there's a problem. How would you feel if you have a friend and they only run to you when they have a problem? Mashallah, what a loyal friend what a good friend. Hello, hope to see you again.
imagedata hope to see you again. You have another calamity
How would you feel if a friend only comes to you and they have a problem? Every anytime you see him? I need this I need a ride here and but we actually don't share very and he just come to me say Salaam or something or have a mealer this only when you have a problem. So with the laws of logic, you ask us to handle or you ask him even if everything is okay, and imagine someone Allah bless him and bestowed so many blessings on him. Danny says well, everything's okay. Why should I make dua to Allah right now? hamdulillah the kids are fine. The money is good, the house is good. My house is everyone's health is alright. When should I make what an ungrateful person right? Immediately you
feel this person is ungrateful to Allah so
why don't you make the offer a lot to keep the net amount upon you? Why don't you make dua to Allah to keep your children healthy, to guide them in the future to keep them more tidy to to keep the health upon you to keep your to preserve your wealth and so on to put Baraka in your your wealth, does that have to be a problem before you run to Allah xojo.
And for that reason, then, the scholars say from the etiquettes of Dharma is that you make dua to Allah with a phallus, just like we saw in that Hadith, that with a philosopher asking alone, you're asking Allah alone, and you're sincerely asking and requesting from Allah Subhan
Anil tala from the etiquettes of dog is that you begin with unhemmed you and any praise of Allah subhanaw taala and the Salah on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so you can even say and if there is no fixed way, but you can say hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Rahim Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barakaatuh Muhammad. You can keep making any Salah upon the Prophet Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you're asking Allah like we said, and you are certain you have a loss and you're certain that Allah azza wa jal will respond to you, and you persevere. Many people, they make a dog once, twice, three times, where is it? It's not here by Palmas, it's not working perservere
the scholars set when you want something from Allah asked the same way a child asked from a parent, a new and living here you've seen when at the store, a child wants a piece of candy, and the parent says no, and the worst of luck now and the crying and rolling on the floor and pleading and begging and everything comes out of the child at that moment. The scholars liken it to that beggar like that, cry to Allah subhanaw taala asked him again and again and again and cry and beg and ask Allah azza wa jal, some people just one time, two times three times, whereas it didn't come in the house was not working, and maybe our sins, maybe something blocked it. I think your impatience blocked it.
And because of impatience, their brothers and sisters because of impatience, so many people, they instead of persevering and constantly asking a lot, they go look for shortcuts, they try to find some other way to do it. And that's why we have in many Muslim countries, all these formulas for these magical hours, to for something to happen quickly. One of the ones I was called is to, and this is all nonsense, we make sure no one forgets now, and thinks that we're saying this. For example, they see recited Fatiha 1000 times in one night, and whatever you want, will happen. And the good news is people who try that they fall asleep before they finish resetting and 30,000 times.
Maybe someone can calculate that how long does it take to recertify? to how once multiply that by 1000? Is it even possible to do that? in one night or not? If there was a formula like that, would anyone have a problem? And that's why these books these little formula books are so popular, so popular amongst the believers. If you say this you will always have bread online this for formula for bread, formula for amount of money never running out formula for people respecting you formula for people never insulting you.
The process of selling was insulted. Don't you think he would have used this formula? So a lot of
people learn something a lot so rigid. And who are you? You're gonna say something 64 times. No one's gonna touch you. Go push someone in the street, he turns around to you.
I can't insult you. What is it?
I always tell them how I was they had this booklet and it has
the names of Allah and each one. If you say this many times some miraculous thing would happen. And remember looking through that book, I look through this one, if you say it, you will always have read it. Look through the next one. No one will instruct you Next one. They tell you you know you will never become poor. Next one. Your wife will obey you. Next. Wait a minute.
Coming maybe I'll try this one.
So people have become impatient. in Muslim countries, people run quickly to the sorcerer.
And it's impermissible is severely wrong. They wanted a sorcerer. They need a quick fix. We're used to instant gratification everything happening quickly, but not with a lot. So if you keep asking him subhanaw taala and keep begging him and crying to him. And you ask Allah azza wa jal in any language you you want and what language you speak
any language you speak, ask Allah in it, and he don't allow someone to restrict the relationship between you and Allah. I'm sitting in the doctor's office can I make dua to Allah in my language?
Yes or no?
hesitation. Are you being British?
I know British people are very reserved. So which one is hesitating or being British? Being British? Excellent. So you know, you can make the auto learn any language I'm at the doctor's office, and I'm waiting. I swear to speak to Allah azza wa jal, in order in Tagalog and Hindi in Mandarin in any language I make dua to Allah soldier. Why? This got to see because one, you're eloquent in your language. Maybe I have maybe, even if I know some Arabic, maybe I'm not able to in classical Arabic to translate and say everything. Maybe someone has
an exam in Maine, cooler physics. How do you translate molecular physics into classical Arabic? It's impossible. You know why? Because there's no such thing as molecular physics. I made it up. That's one reason.
But you're gonna have to go through Tajima.
Every time we go, Okay, this is what I'm gonna say, right out the door. So when you're in your studio, do you have a cheat sheet? You put the sheet there, make sure you honor and read Allahumma What are they right there?
in your language escalada xojo, right. And the scholar says a one you're more eloquent to your heart is there True or false? Your heart is there, you know what you're saying? And you have your own specific and this is your custom Do you know you want just a regular generic da or your custom door? I want to have my custom problems I want a custom to offer it. I want some guy to give me a piece of paper with this blog will say it. Like Okay, some of the stuff in this door doesn't apply to me and given me children still not even married yet. I don't need this right now. Maybe in the future. But don't get me custom did give me this generic to us. I have custom problems. I need to customize my
own door. Don't let someone come between you and Allah azza wa jal.
So in any language, you can call upon your Lords upon wattana.
Ask a Librarian from the etiquettes three times ask Allah three times, you know, aloha Moroccan agenda, aloha Moroccan agenda, lahoma. Anything, whatever you want to ask a lot asked three times from the etiquette and facing the Qibla. Also from the etiquette of making da facing the tiblet is asuna. And it's not wajib It's a sooner and it's not was up I can make dua to Allah in any position. But if especially if I want to make a long to I'm preparing for it, then here, it would be preferable to make will do for example, I want to sit down and make a long draw. I know it doesn't have to be that long making will do is preferable. Facing the Qibla is preferable but I can be in
any position. I don't have to pull out I see this only in the UK, the guys pull up their phones and start going like this, then it doesn't look similar. So I'm on the bus I'm going and I have to turn that way then the bus turns. Now which way is it? Okay. Hello, just make the hat this point, right. So the where to where do we know this from the companions describing the beautiful salon, they said film was struck by little Tabler for the mostakbal Qibla da then he turned towards the Qibla. And he made
from the etiquettes of is not raising the voice yelling out loud and screaming out loud. And Allah subhanaw taala told the companions you're not calling one that is mute or far or absent. You don't have to yell like that, for Allah subhanaw taala. To hear you from the etiquettes of da is that you you might begin by admitting your sin. You're not arrogant in front of Allah and Allah knows what you conceal and what you reveal. And he knows the sins that you committed. So you can admit the sin that you made. And ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive it, acknowledge all the blessings that you have from Allah. And this is part of your etiquette of beginning this discussion or this speaking to
Allah, so you acknowledge your sins, I'm not trying to cover them up or make excuses for them. And sometimes people constantly will make excuses for their sins. Oh, this is okay, the heart is pure. And this is all right. And this is difference of opinion. And this has three opinions on it admitted now with a large budget, and acknowledged all the blessings that you have from him subhanaw taala. And then you raise the hands from the etiquettes of God and the advantages we said, Because Allah subhanaw taala hates to return, the return them sit for 10 years and the empty. So from the etiquettes is to put your hands up. Because it's got to say and it is an example I might ask, or
someone might ask you, and He will put his hand up like this, I say please give me and you might let them return their hand empty handed. Some people might do that.
Look at you know another time and they'll put their hand back empty handed. But Allah doesn't like to do that Allah hates to do that or it's shy to do that. This likes to do that. So put your hands up so that when you're there returned Allah gives you in one of the three situations that we mentioned either in the dunya or pushing giving you a similar good or pushing away similar harm or giving it to you and so from the etiquettes of making dials to raise your hands do you have to raise your hands all the time? We're saying from the etiquettes we didn't say from the word you bought or the shirt or the icon and it just from the etiquette so you can be at the doctor's office and you
can just make
maybe your hands are in your pocket you're making da as you're sitting in the chair there and you don't have to do this in front of everybody okay on
the scholars say when you make don't make it da da da is basically transgressing and going over the boundaries is the time to stop
Do not it today is is transgressing in when making dua. For example, to make the offer something that would never happen or it's an impossibility. You're allowed to make me a prophet
type you know, there's not gonna be a prophet anymore. Oh Allah make me as a hobby. Make me from the Sahaba Allah. Allah says over Have you missed that chance. It wasn't
Even after you were born it's a hobby or not. So you can't make a dog for something that's impossible. And don't make a dog with too many details. Oh Allah give me a house and just as I lived in South Eastern London give me a house in south eastern part of the agenda. Okay, or give me a tree this high with this many branches with as many birds on it the here this is it that you're going Oh, you're overstepping. Just say ask a lot to go into one to go to gentlemen for those Priscilla also taught us to aim high and no one makes the art or law make me that guy in the Hadith the last one to leave the hellfire. First he waits outside and then he goes inside because that guy gets 10 times
even the kings of the dunya Oh, that's good luck. Have you been nervous? Also, I'm telling you, if you make the McTell effort for those that aren't at the highest level of agenda don't aim low. So too many details and a phrase someone sometimes assisted with ask a question like this can I make dua to Allah to marry me on the day of judgment and in in the agenda to marry me to a specific Sahabi
I know it's a question that has come before you know you can't
make me one of the wives of Bill alexandrova agenda. You can't do that. Maybe they'll give you Ali
Alicia Moshe Moshe or whatever his name is just some guy from Northeast London speaking northeast
Hamas so don't too many details. And you don't make to ask for something that already happened. Something horrible Allah and I don't know you can use your imagination and something that already happened. Yeah.
Yeah, Allah. Well, I don't know. I was gonna say yeah, like give me
give me a wife and you already married but that's a valid law right?
So Mmm, you can use your imagination. Think of an example Allah Yanni create me in this brilliant mahalo sorority in the dunya. So it's already happened. Do you don't make it like this? You don't go. You also don't say insha Allah and the DA. And you Oh in [???]. You're not asking Allah like that. Yeah, we said Yanni and Jasmine and you're in your you're certain and you're almost insistent in that you're persistent and insistent when you're asking Allah so you're not saying any Oh ALLAH and take me to agenda in sha Allah. You take me to Agenda if you will. And if you decide that What are you saying if you don't decide throw me over there?
What are you saying that so you say you don't say in shop or lower in [???] to you? It's like yeah, and if it happens it happens if it doesn't anywhere okay? Nah, so is known in no in [???] and insha Allah and stuff in there is not from the etiquette of God. There's gotta say from the etiquette is that you start from yourself, you start with yourself. Yeah, you start always with yourself and then someone else and we saw a lot of times with issues of Dini don't give preference to someone else over yourself just like sometimes there'll be a gap in the front row and brothers will like you know, he'll advance in him move back do you go Yeah, I don't need this reward that the front row I
shall I do I am.
and you don't do things like that. Also sometimes you find people leave the front row for another person you know molana came molana came late Carlos molana pray in the fourth row. This guy leaves the front row monana comm
no heavy view print the front view be more than this time? frame the front row. Yeah.
So you start with yourself this is gonna say look, and look at the data in the forum. Robin Lee when you validate how fantastic is that rubbish really when you are ready Oh my Lord, forgive me and forgive my parents. You love your parents and even here the dices forgive me and then my parents so you make the offer yourself and then you make the offer for your friends for family for whatever it is.
So don't lose hope when making you don't lose hope when asking ALLAH and sometimes you see people who lose hope yeah I need you to someone comes and he's sick. Make dua inshallah Allah will heal you. Allah Allah it's it's a loss at one stage for
what do you mean when the doctor can heal stage four but a luck and he'll stage for make Diana has been sick 20 years da da. What do you mean? What do I make sure I don't lose hope. The guy tells you Oh, it's been Oh, it's too late. Now too late for whom? We're talking about a lot. It's too late. Now, some people are like that, or the man that can't have children for 20 years. You know, mC mC doctor. We've been told that has been 20 years or so long issue a new philosophy. What? Make dua to Allah azza wa jal
who's to stop a lot. If you will have a child that's gonna say look into Korea. And he said the Korea his wife, he said it after after Dinesh stero. His wife was thorough. Don't forget the fact that she was old. And he this could have said if she was 20 years old. She still couldn't get pregnant.
cuz she's sterile. Now she's sterile and old is not amazing or what?
Are you amazed?
I mean, I'm British. As long as I know you're amazed even internally if you're amazed it's fine with me.
Okay, because I'm used to audiences that jump up in America. So you guys
and the Egyptians in here Gotta love Egyptians Adonis, love Egyptians man, because they jumped man. They jump maybe the ship is been to British eyes now. British is advised by sea and you listen to an Egyptian lecture man you hear people react.
Anyway anyways, but I respect how you guys are composed and respective of dignify this very good fine with me. But I think it's a jump worthy point that his wife was sterile and old. If she was just sterile you'd still it'll still be impossible but he's still making the auto Allah for a child did he lose hope?
Thank you sir. Absolutely not, did not lose hope.
One of the things that make your daughter responded to is that you you have a lot of Helen
Helen and everything eating halal meaning you don't eat haram here and here people who see this hadith is for the meat now eating halal meat meaning not eating haram okay not eating anything that's haram doesn't doesn't mean just meat could be tomato can be haram How can a tomato be haram?
If you steal it, yeah. If you walk into what you start as the clean one up on this either
the we don't have to worry about the behind here. So Allah Allah, no, it's not Habib. No, it's not. So make sure that the Hadith individual Salaam is describing a man Curlew and he's asking a lot asking Allah asking a lot and his food nakahara when Matura haram and his drink is haram, women bestow haram and his clothing is haram for unnai used to Jabu and from where is he going to get a response. It's haram drinks haram dresses haram and he wants a lot to respond to him. Where's he going to get this response from? So keeping everything Helen and the pasilla gave the advice he said aatip matar muck up lip balm organic keep your food, good Yanni clean halaal pure of you know pure
wealth and things of that sort. I'll take them atomic
from the etiquettes of is that you don't make against others. You don't make against other believers. Okay. And it's not really an enlisted man. There's an enemy but you don't just like you know, see a non Muslim walk in the street.
I couldn't even give a straight face. Oh, Allah Thunder right now on his head. Yeah.
Why would you rather if you put your hands up for anonymously, wouldn't you rather than be guided?
Right. You'd be you'd rather they're guided. So not making against others would lie.
Yeah. And there was there was in this office and without much details, but the person told me they were still work at an office with the Muslim country. And this woman, they had a boss and he was basically the boss was whatever mean or unkind at the office. Suddenly he died. When he died, one of the co workers told them will lie for two years after every solo. I make Darfur a lot to kill him.
And she is very happy. He died because of my die killed him. Yeah, and you could hold on, hold on, man. Hold on. He has children. He has a wife. He has a family. He has brothers and sisters. He has a mother that loves him. Why would you do something like that? It's because of work because of the printer, the phone, silly things like that. Two years every sujood. And that's, by the way, this is one of the signs of the hypocrites, that they're severe if they have a disagreement with you severe for the believers. Don't be like that be very merciful agenda to the believers, even if you have a problem with that. Well, like there was.
And this happened in America, there was a half as a car, okay, as you say, half his car. And he had a small issue with another Muslim businessman. And he was a small issue with like, it was an issue of misunderstanding. and wonderful. That's all I need. An issue of misunderstanding. Yeah. And this businessman said, will lie every sujood I make against him. Yeah. Why do you make every every sale that you make against george bush? This was George Bush time.
If anything, at least, who's worse than it is this car, this gentleman and the man who memorize the Book of Allah, and you're gonna dedicate a section of every sigil to him, but at least if you're going to do that, I know some of you think maybe, I don't think any of you will think and make even good Dr. Bushnell.
But at least if you're going to dedicate a section of your DOD to make against someone, I have a long list of people before some righteous man in our community I can give you if you need help.
We'll give you a list of kuffaar and tyrants and people who need some serious da against them. Pick this guy. So this is one of the attributes in the descriptions of the hypocrites that they're chedid. If there's a difference, if they disagree or have an altercation with someone, they're severe, they can't control it. So it's not from the whim of the believer to make against others, or to make dua. Oh Allah give us give me any say, like, give me my punishment in the after I hear in the dunya. And then there's a hadith where a man went to Brazil and went to this man who was bedridden, and he said, what kind of data is processed and felt this man would make the wrong dice
at what kind of die did you make? So the mentalism is to make dua for Allah to give me my punishment after here in the dunya
the person I'm telling them Don't say that, it would have been better for you to say Aloma atina if it dunia hasn't eaten orfila harati Hashanah and if you're going to make dua to Allah, and he's going to answer you anyways. Oh Allah giving us the best in this dunya and the best in the afra doesn't that make more sense? Oh Allah give me my punishment they're here bla bla bla bla don't give me punishment there and at least even that's better isn't it?
and you don't make the offer something that's hot. Yeah, please help me murder this person. Yeah. Oh, yeah, I'll help me get drunk tonight. Yeah, these things are hard on you can't make da for to help for a lot to help you with something that's hot off and we have to say this and I know you're thinking well this is silly but you have to disclose mentioned it and sometimes people will make the offer something's wrong they want to go meet someone for something hard on me unless facilitate
so and but as a point of interest to me wiping over the face it's a weak ID anyone you make
and then you wipe the face it's a weak idea that you wipe the face so you don't want the face we don't worship Allah based on mechanic but sometimes you say this howdy and people are so used to wiping the face they don't know what to do on Thomas Edison MSG and we set it so after the Salalah enter some people they finished them they were about to wipe them they look like this
so what are you wiping there's nothing there really that you put in here anything but alas, it's over. It's over. There's nothing no one's nothing to walk around like this to the bathroom, wash your hands.
But the times where the die is accepted and we have like three minutes the time when you die is accepted. The last third of the night the lesser of the night is the most magnificent time and Allah is asking who wants to be for you is asking we're seeking forgiveness so I mean forgive him and who is asking for something so I may give him and in this time we are in deep deep deep sleep. People have a problem they get up in the luster of the night. And it's like a treasure chest you put your hands in and you take what you want a lot of good will give you just wake up and ask him how do we calculate the luster of the night? Let's make the math easy. Mother is at six o'clock this is
hypothetically come on you guys. And for you arratia is two in the morning yeah and frigid is at 115 before your time so much how love very strange here I don't know him. Let's say in this simple example Muslim is at six o'clock and fudger is at six o'clock so how many hours is this night we have 12 hours if I break it into thirds then it will be increments of four hours so the last third of the night will be apt
yeah two o'clock fantastic in this example and when you calculate it, look at what time it is with time I mean yeah mobile app and see how long that night is break it into three and that last third is when Allah descends and ask those magnificent questions. And you ask a lot if you get up at that time if you have a problem and you'll get your solution making tons of rain it's the higher chance of your dog being accepted making die when traveling making doubt on the day of Juma Friday making die when you're in your salute. The President said you're closer to a low and you're in your suit. So make the in your ears for dude making the wild fasting and at the time of fast and when you're
breaking the fast sorry, the breaking fast the time you're breaking the fast you have
a dog with a law that will not be refused and so on and so forth and many other examples and but inshallah with that from at least we'll take the the the notion of wanting to constantly make dua to Allah and also make dua for your brothers because the angel will say I mean, we're like a mistletoe and I mean and for you the likes of the same manner that you've made the DA for. I'd like to thank you for being an excellent and attentive audience and thank you for coming so long robotic Allah Mohammed Ali.
salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah Hill.
