all praises due to Allah we praise Him and seek his assistance. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil within ourselves and from the evil of our deeds, whomsoever Allah guides and uncon misguide him at home ever he allows us to go astray, none can guide him and I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah alone. He has no partner and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger. Yeah, you have levena Armand otaku la Hakata De La La Tomatina Illa want to Muslim moon, or you who believe fear Allah as he should be feared and do not die except in the state of Islam.

And then from him he created his mate, and fret and he spread from these to many men and women and be careful of your duty to Allah, by whom you demand your mutual rights and to the ties of kinship.

00:01:53--> 00:02:01

will forgive your sins, and whomsoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed achieved a great achievement.

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

about fitness local Hadith, aka tabula rasa had you had you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Bashar Al ohmori Matata Hakuna Matata tiene de Vaca livedata Balala wakulla Dalton phenol

00:02:15--> 00:02:35

a macabre usually you say I'm bad meaning after what I've said to proceed to the next topic. Today we're saying a macabre as what we just said As for what we just said, Because today our hobo is explaining what is known as hope but alhaja how we just began to hotbar

00:02:36--> 00:03:18

because of a number of reasons. Number one, this is the part where everyone zones out. So the amount start to say in and hamdulillah and people are just zoning out because we hear this every hope ah and no one pays attention to it. And then when he introduces the topic then everybody sits up and pays attention. So the prophets allows alum often began his hot tub with what is known as hot button haha. But it's from the sooner to do it for the marriage before the before the marriage, it's sooner to do the whole thing. But otherwise, it's not a sinner. And you can omit it or you can say it but the prostate lung often began his speeches with this.

00:03:19--> 00:04:10

And so there must be then some benefit to it. And it benefits and it behooves us to understand what it means. The other thing is that when you understand this beginning, then every hope has benefit in it for you and every hope it will be beneficial because you're benefiting from this beginning as opposed to just zoning out and then coming back to focus once the man begins. So hope but alhaja and Nabi sallallahu wasallam begins by saying in and handa Lila Nakamoto that indeed the praise is for Allah and His praise. And it's different from a sugar. Sugar is when you think someone being thankful. And when you think it's makabe someone does some good or gives you something good. And

00:04:10--> 00:04:18

then in return you thank them for it and action done to you directly or indirectly that you benefit from so then you thank the person who did it.

00:04:19--> 00:04:36

But you don't thank someone for an attribute that they have. You didn't get any benefit out of this. If someone is courageous or someone who's intelligent, you don't go thank them for their own quality. And that's one of the differences between a thanking and sugar. Well hummed praising.

00:04:37--> 00:05:00

Because when when you're praising you're describing one that is praised with camel with being complete or with perfection or with a good quality, whether you receive it or not. Yeah, and if someone from this community donates for the people advertised who need a bone marrow transplant, the parents of that person and the patient will

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

Thank them because they received an immediate good, but you if you're not affected by that you don't go thank them, but you will go praise this quality that they had. So, with praise, you don't have to be the recipient, you praise the quality that someone may have. And you can praise generosity that someone has, whether you're a recipient of that generosity or not, you're praising that quality. So we're saying unhemmed to Allah. So again, we're praising Allah azza wa jal for those qualities, and that's why you praise Allah azza wa jal if something good happens, or if something bad happens, and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us when something bad happens, you say

00:05:42--> 00:05:56

Alhamdulillah Allah Callaghan. So you're praising Allah, in all situations in all conditions. So you're praising whether good comes or bad comes because it's not related to receiving good it's related to the qualities of the one being praised.

00:05:57--> 00:06:39

But the school has mentioned something very important and that is hummed comes also with other qualities, only the difference between humped and mud. And mud is this when you commend someone or when you compliment someone. But unhemmed comes with internal love and glorification as well. Because someone might praise a king. But internally in his heart, he might not even like the individual. But with him, it doesn't carry that meaning with him. The minute that you use the word hummed, it shows that it comes with it with internal agreement, not just with the tongue. So you're you're praising Allah azza wa jal, but internally, you you glorify Allah subhanaw taala, and you

00:06:39--> 00:07:24

love Allah subhanaw taala and that's the meaning of unhemmed. So the problem would begin by saying in and Hamza Lila All praise is due to Allah, Muhammad, we praise Him when Esther you know, and we seek his aid his assistance. The scholar said, in performing this Salah in a way that pleases allows origin other said we seek as his assistance in this hope bar, this speech that I'm about to give Mr. Ian who is seeking his aid and assistance. When I stopped federal, we seek His forgiveness. And an important point, brothers and sisters, is that seeking forgiveness is not just when you commit a sin is not just from sin. So people think that you seek forgiveness when you actually do something

00:07:24--> 00:08:08

wrong. But you can also seek forgiveness, for shortcomings, for under achieving, for being heedless. These are not actual things that were harmed that were done, but I'm not giving Allah subhanaw taala his do right. I can seek forgiveness from that. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us after the Salah, the first thing we say is a stuff for Allah three times here, it's not from a sin. It's saying from my shortcoming, yeah, Allah, this Salah that I just presented is not befitting is not worthy of your greatness and Your Majesty. So the sin is not just from the fall, it's not just from actually doing something wrong, but it's from falling short and from being

00:08:08--> 00:08:10

heedless, and for all kinds of other things.

00:08:11--> 00:08:53

And it's important to fix that meaning so that we don't only just make us suffer if we do something wrong, but we'd make a step forward for our shortcomings. Regarding Allah subhanaw taala when are the billahi min surey and fusina woman say, Dr. Medina, so we seek refuge with Allah from the evil within ourselves and then from the evil of our deeds. This is not saying that the self The neffs is inherently evil, but it's saying We seek refuge with Allah from the potential evil of our souls. And as we know, there are different kinds of souls there's the good soul, there's the evil one or the one that commands evil. And this is also mentioned in the Quran and sort of use of Walmart Uber NFC

00:08:53--> 00:09:44

in a nutshell a Martin bisou in Rama, Rama Rama, Rama Robbie in Arabic Rahim. And I do not declare myself guilt free or innocent. Because indeed, man self is prone to command him to do evil, except those that my lord have mercy upon. And surely my Lord is more forgiving, Most Merciful. So we know that there's the evil soul, we know that there's the good soul, but you're saying that I am seeking refuge with ALLAH, I'm seeking Allah help in restraining my neffs restraining myself. So it has the potential for evil and it has for and for evil deeds. And you notice then when we lay misura and fusina woman say, Dr. Medina, and then the results would be of the evil knifes and the evil thoughts

00:09:44--> 00:09:51

and the evil planning will be the action and that's why the thoughts came first. And then the actions came later from the evil of our deeds.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

Because then you get the thought and either you act upon it or you don't act upon it. Then the problem said it says here

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

May Allah who Fela Mandala la mejor de Lille Fela hodja Allah if Allah guides someone, meaning if Allah chooses to guide someone or decrease guidance or wills guidance for someone that no one on the planet can then misguide that individual after a load decreed that there will be guided, and whomever Allah allows us to go astray, or whomever chooses evil. So Allah then keeps him on that path that he or she has chosen. And we see this multiple times in the Koran. So a certain level of wickedness where people have chosen evil so Allah allows them to remain in that evil we see this in sort of Miriam, Coleman Can I fit bollati for Yun de la hora, hamano muda hut. So here allows me

00:10:47--> 00:11:31

says say s for he who remains in error, then our ramen will surely prolong his length of days until they see what they're threatened with either the punishment or the hour. Likewise, we see it in sort of the SFX phenom whoo azova la hoopoe boom. But when they turned aside, then Allah made their heart hearts turn aside and Allah does not guide the transgressing people. So these people transgress to a level that allow left them in their transgression left them in their misguidance. So whoever Allah allows to go astray or Allah, because of their choice leaves them in misguidance. No one will bring them out of misguidance. Likewise, we see this in sort of bacala the laws will describe the people

00:11:31--> 00:11:52

who chose the shale theme. were either local with a local Latina, Armando Carlos, Amanda, were either Hello, Elijah Athenian and then if they are alone with their shouting with their devils, they will say surely we're with you. We're only mocking so they chose the Shelton so Allah subhanaw taala, left them in the path that they chose.

00:11:53--> 00:12:36

So then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, well, Shadow Allah, Allah illallah wa de la sharika, lah wa shadow Mohammedan, Abu rasuluh all the words, but we're before we're in plural form in the hamdulillah Nakamoto monastery in one istockphoto. And now it's singular from what a shadow singular, because it is more appropriate for the Shahada to be in, in singular form, because you do it on behalf of yourself. You testify for yourself, you don't do it on behalf of others. And in it, of course, is the important meaning of tawheed La ilaha illAllah or the hula Sharif Allah he's alone. He has no partner, you don't associate anyone in worship with him. And then the process alum

00:12:36--> 00:13:02

asserting that Mohammed, Abu Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam that Mohammed wa sallam is his worshipper is his servant is his servant. Here. That means if he is worshiping Allah, if he's serving a lot, he can't be worshipped himself. He himself is doing worship. And it closes the avenue to Hulu and exaggerating concerning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam,

00:13:04--> 00:13:11

wa rasuluh and his messenger so then you can't belie or deny or ignore his prophethood sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

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

This was the beginning sometimes and maybe sort of low Salaam will recite three verses and these were the verses that we recited in the beginning. The first verse from sort of Milan, yeah, you had Latina, Armando, Taka la hepta. To party. What are Tomatina Illa one two Muslim What are you who believe have proper taqwa of Allah and taqwa of Allah azza wa jal is to put a shield or a barrier between you and the punishment or the anger of Allah subhanaw taala. By doing good and staying away from the, the evil or the bad, usually allows you it will warn and tell you to have Taqwa of Allah azza wa jal or it took one hour a lot to do harness with genre fear and stay away from the Hellfire

00:13:58--> 00:14:13

put a shield between you and the hellfire. So a shield between you and Allah, a shield between you and the Hellfire or a shield between you and that day, the date of judgment with double Yeoman to Jonah Viola and fear a Day where you will be returned to Allah.

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

So then, yeah, you heard the innominate de la haka. Takata. Oh, you who believe fear Allah as he should be feared in the complete sense. Some of the scholars and it's a minority opinion said this verse was abrogated, because no one can fear Allah as he should be feared. And they said insalata verbal, Allah says, la mustapa. Fear Allah as much as you can. So they're saying, because the first one is impossible. This is the verse that abrogated it, but the other scholars and that's the majority, they said, No, it is not an abrogated verse, but you can combine both meanings. So then that would the verses combined with mean fear Allah as he should be feared as much as you can muster

00:15:01--> 00:15:36

And do not die except in the state of Islam which means remain steadfast upon this Deen or upon this religion remain steadfast until you meet Allah azza wa jal as Muslims so that when death comes to you, you're a Muslim and you meet a large region as Muslims. Then the next verse, the porcelain would recite is the beginning of Surah Nisa. Yeah you Hannah's a top or a bottom? Are you Are people, be dutiful to your Lord or be mindful of your Lord who created you from a single being meaning Adam alayhis salam

00:15:37--> 00:15:55

Hello Caminha. Xhosa and he created minhang from it. So some other movies sitting said minha meaning the substance that he created the atom from, he created what from and others and the more popular from the soul of from this neffs of them he created

00:15:56--> 00:16:11

his xojo the spouse meaning how or even English Wilhelmina soja Robert seminoma Richard and Kathy are on one Isa. So then from them Allah subhanaw taala great many men and women after them or from them.

00:16:12--> 00:16:17

What tequila and Lady TESSA aluna be one or harm. It's saying

00:16:18--> 00:17:05

and, and fear Allah through which you demand through whom you demand your mutual rights. Just like how someone will ask someone by Allah, Allah Kabila, I asked you by Allah. So if you're a law, through whom you ask and demand your rights from each other, I asked you by a lot to give me this or to do this for me. What are Hama, or in some way or Jaime? So when are Hama would be and fear Allah through which you demand your mutual rights, and when are Hama and do not break the ties of kinship? Your relatives do not break the relationship with them. Always be in connection with them. So that's what that would mean. And some of them will or harming would mean, you demand your rights through

00:17:05--> 00:17:49

Allah because a lot of great you asked your demands through a law. And you also asked your demands by the ties of kinship. And we actually have an example from this from the seed of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were ultra webnode obeah. After the prophet SAW Selim recited to him, he said Nasha to Kala what Rahim I asked you by Allah, and by the ties of the womb, and by the kinship clan is a relationship. So because it's saying it's such a big thing people used to ask themselves ask each other through their ties of kinship. Just like you would ask someone you know, I'm your cousin or I'm your relative or I'm your uncle do this for me. You're asking through that tie because it's

00:17:49--> 00:17:52

something that is great. So that would be the second meaning of that.

00:17:54--> 00:18:00

In the law, Hakuna alikoum rocky but Allah is Ever watching and aware of what you do. And if you are aware

00:18:01--> 00:18:25

that Allah subhanaw taala is watching you then that will be from the highest levels of a man as the prophet SAW Selim explained in Sahih Muslim, when he was asked about a son is he said it's to worship Allah as if you can see him and the school to see if you can see a low with your eyes and you could see his greatness in his magnificence. And how would you worship Allah azza wa jal, but if you can't, then the second level is to remember that Allah subhanaw taala is constantly watching you.

00:18:27--> 00:18:34

Then the third verse was from sorta azova you hola Dena amo taco. La Hoya Hulu Colin said either or you believe fear Allah

00:18:35--> 00:18:49

and speak the truth and cola said Ed Anima said al Musab al Huck. So a truthful speech, that will that is leading to the truth or, or truthful meaning no lies in it.

00:18:50--> 00:19:29

So fearing Allah azza wa jal, because the verse starts it tequila fearing Allah is internal, and it's concealed. And now logical is mentioning something specific, that is law that is apparent and outward, and that would be speech. And it's a reflection speech is a reflection of what is in the heart. So it's not just good enough for the believer to think well, and then speak however you want as long as you are good in here, no, be good in here and speak well as well speak the truth as well. And as we know from the Hadith, it's of the top two things. The tongue is one of the top two things that lead people into the Hellfire or in another Hadith apostle asked rhetorically, is there

00:19:29--> 00:19:34

anything that causes people to be toppled onto their faces into the Hellfire except the tongue?

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

So then what is the result? Yeah, you hola Dena, Armando taco la la kulu. Colin said, EDA. What's the result of that? Useless, Armando. Allah will rectify your deeds will rectify your affairs. If you have Taqwa. You have awareness that allows agilis watching, you know, disobedience, then what about the shortcomings? You know, can we overlook them then overcome and allow

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

Then we'll forgive your sins.

00:20:04--> 00:20:48

When my daughter Allah wa Sula, who has a photo of him and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger over 30 times in the Quran, Allah azza wa jal commands the believers to obey the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Yeah, you're holding on to your law, or after your suit or you believe obey Allah and obey the messenger. In another verse, Allah subhanaw taala, equated obeying the prophets and send them to obeying Allah azza wa jal, miyota Rasul Allah, whoever obeys the messenger he has indeed obeyed Allah. And that's why today we see the biggest attack is on the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam on the commands of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, those who say we will follow whatever is in

00:20:48--> 00:21:07

the Quran. But if they followed what's in the Quran, they would have naturally then as a result of that obeyed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and whoever does that, for the first fosun or the Ummah he will achieve a great achievement a great victory, which usually in the Quran means he will achieve an agenda.

00:21:09--> 00:21:23

And then, in the second hope bench Allah will explain the last part of Houghton hajah cola cola was to follow the money welcome in Jamia Manifesto, Pharaoh, Pharaoh fosun Rastafarian ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness indeed those who ask for his forgiveness shall prosper

00:21:39--> 00:21:46

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah I mean he was a big marine about

00:21:48--> 00:22:30

so then concluding hot button haha and maybe salsa lamb would say for in the highroad howdy kita boleh. The best of speech is the book of Allah. Well halal howdy had you Mohammed in Salalah while he was in them, and the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam that means then, that there can't be any way of doing things better than the way of meaning and acts of worship and, and, and connecting with a large region better than that shown to us by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam many times people give you advice that goes against his advice, or an act of worship in life, but it can't be better than his guidance to the best of guidance is the guidance

00:22:30--> 00:22:42

of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and people sometimes want to add or change the worship of Allah azza wa jal or how we worship Allah subhanaw taala and it can never be better than the guidance of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam

00:22:44--> 00:23:16

will shuffle ohmori data and the worst of all affairs are the newly invented matters. And here in my data that is referring to issues that are were invented into the religion. It is not talking about cars and technology. It's talking about innovating and inventing something into how we worship Allah azza wa jal that alters or changes how we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala will Kula be the atom Bala Allah, so we'll call him a desert invader. So the problem said

00:23:17--> 00:23:49

that the worst of affairs are the newly invented matters. And then we'll call them as death in beta every newly invented matter is an innovation a bidder, an A, and never saw seldom said cool, which is all encompassing it means every newly invented matter in the religion is a bidder will couldn't attend balada. And every bidder is leads astray is a bola and he said couldn't Solo Solo. Every single one. Today you find people and this is no joke. They'll tell you there's a bit of

00:23:50--> 00:24:04

a bit out word Jeeva even they say there's an obligatory bidder and a good bidder. There's no such thing and levies are seldom said every bidder, and when they're low on who called tarawih. A good bidder. He wasn't using the word bid or linguist,

00:24:05--> 00:24:21

technically meaning islamically he was using it linguistically. Because the word bid is also a word in the Arabic language. He was using it in the Arabic language. He could never use it religiously, because he knows that he has not been he prayed for three nights before behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:24:22--> 00:24:27

wakulla de la Latin finnur and everything that leads us astray is in the hellfire.

00:24:29--> 00:25:00

So this is how the prophet SAW said lamb would begin the whole top when there was the speech before the weddings, or sometimes before a speech and sometimes like I showed her the law would say the lamb climbed the member for him it Hamidullah. He praised a lot and then he began his speech. So it's not absolutely necessary that every hotel or every book begins with hot button hajah and it's something that I'm used sometimes and many hotels start that way. And it's important for people to understand what it means to their benefit.

00:25:00--> 00:25:14

As they're hearing it, they're getting all the reminders as they're hearing it and not just zoning out and ignoring it. Because it's something that we hear every time without ask illogical to make use of those who recognize the truth as clear truth and follow the best of it for lahoma and

00:25:15--> 00:25:20

we're in a bottle a bottle and we're so clenched in ABA for lahoma rajala. dunia Akbar homina

00:25:21--> 00:25:48

homina illa Norma sirona We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant victory to Islam and to the Muslims and to grant ease and freedom to all the Muslims who are being held and dealt with and just around the world.
