00:00:03--> 00:00:15

We move on after that to the next parable. And this parable is concerning. Those who remember Allah subhana wa tada

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

and so

00:00:20--> 00:01:17

I'm the mooser and ashari are the long line. This Hadith is also narrated by Abu Musab, Ashanti are the alumni on a call interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam methadone lady, yes, Guru Rhonda who when lady law Yes, the guru, mystery Laurel high you will get the example of one who remembers his Lord and one who does not remember him is like that of the living and the debt in the narration or in the wording of Sahih Muslim. This was the wording in Sufi hobo high in the wording of Sufi Muslim the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, methadone is bait and ledi ubicado la houfy. Well baited ledi allow you to cover a long fee method and how you will make that the house in which a lot is

00:01:17--> 00:01:18


00:01:19--> 00:01:22

And the house in which a lot is not remembered,

00:01:23--> 00:01:39

is like the living and the debt is like the living and the dead. And so, in this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned the virtue and the importance of Ezekiel.

00:01:41--> 00:01:45

Which is to remember a loss of Hannah with the Hydra

00:01:46--> 00:01:50

with both your heart and your tongue.

00:01:51--> 00:01:58

And so he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam compared the one who is always remembering a lot

00:01:59--> 00:02:26

to one who is alive, who is full of energy, full of movement, benefiting himself through through this remembrance and through this Vicar. On the other hand, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam compared the one who does not remember a lot to one who is dead, who has no life, and therefore he has no energy to move.

00:02:28--> 00:03:23

And therefore he's not going to bring any good to himself. He's not gonna benefit himself in any way. And so this parable that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave is similar to what Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions, comparing the believer to the disbeliever comparing the believer to the disbeliever in Surah, to Anam Allah Subhana Allah says, a woman can and may 10 for Africa you know what john Allah Allah who moved on MTV finance, can I met a roofing guru Mati Raisa Bihari Jae min ha, today because we need caffeine and I can, yeah, my rule Allah Subhana, Allah says, and is one who was dead. And then we gave him life and made for him light by which he could walk among the

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


00:03:25--> 00:03:37

Is he like one who is in darkness is never to emerge from those dark places. And so, in this parable, in the end, Allah subhanho wa Taala compares

00:03:39--> 00:03:52

the person who used to be a cafe, he compares him to one who was dead, he had no life. Then Allah guided him and he accepts Islam, and Allah gave him life.

00:03:53--> 00:04:10

So this shows us that the cafe is dead. And the believer, he is full of life, in this parable that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave is similar in that regard. So the one who constantly remembers a loss of Hannah who

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

is given life

00:04:13--> 00:04:17

that the one who does not remember a lot is not given.

00:04:18--> 00:04:22

And this is because the remembrance of a lot

00:04:24--> 00:04:40

with your heart and with your tongue is a sign of your recognition of a lot. It is a sign that you are fully conscious of Allah subhana wa Tada. It is also a sign of your love for Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:04:42--> 00:04:53

What else would make you to want to always remember a lot except because of your love for Allah subhana wa Tada. And so as a result, as a result of

00:04:55--> 00:04:56

this remembrance,

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala remembers you

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

Return. And then he gifts you with life. And this is the life of a man.

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

This is the life of a man.

00:05:10--> 00:05:11

And this is the life of the heart.

00:05:12--> 00:05:15

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Accra

00:05:16--> 00:05:46

concerning those who remember him, or he tells us, He commands us to remember him. And if we do remember him, what we will get in return Allah subhanho wa Taala says, first coo Rooney as the korakuen further Cooney at Coco. So remember me, and I will remember you remember me and I will remember you. And this is further explained in a heartbeat.

00:05:47--> 00:05:51

in a heartbeat I could see where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:52--> 00:05:55

says that a loss of heart of what Allah says,

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

The old Allahu taala and I know honey IDB, what NML who either that or honey.

00:06:06--> 00:06:09

For in the Quran, if enough See you,

00:06:10--> 00:06:17

the two who VFC were in decades any female in the top two female in higher minimum.

00:06:19--> 00:06:26

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In this highly Quincey, I am as my sleeve, my servant expects me to be,

00:06:27--> 00:06:30

and I am with him, when he remembers me.

00:06:31--> 00:06:53

If he remembers me inwardly, then I will remember him inwardly. And if he remembers me in an assembly among a group of people, then I will remember him in a better assembly, meaning in the assembly of the angels. And so all of this shows us that

00:06:54--> 00:07:00

the dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala, remembering a lot, both with your heart and your tongue.

00:07:02--> 00:07:27

It causes a loss of Hannah, who were to Hannah, to be with you to be remembering you, just as you remember, a lot less of Hannah Montana remembers you. And so this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam compares the one who remembers a lot to one who is full of life, as opposed to the one who does not remember Allah, that he has no life, he is like a dead person.

00:07:29--> 00:07:36

And so among the lessons that we learn from this, Habib is, first and foremost,

00:07:38--> 00:07:40

the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:41--> 00:07:51

has many benefits for the servant. And this Hadeeth only highlighted one of those benefits that you know,

00:07:53--> 00:07:57

a person he has life in his heart.

00:07:59--> 00:08:03

He has life in his heart. And even though I am

00:08:04--> 00:08:16

he lists over 17 different benefits of Vica. In his book, which he compiled all the code in this book and why I believe so good.

00:08:18--> 00:08:22

He lists over 70 different benefits.

00:08:23--> 00:08:31

And so among, among these benefits that he mentioned is that the life of the Muslim is in him remembering his Lord.

00:08:33--> 00:08:44

Your life as a Muslim is defined by how much you remember Allah. Also, he mentioned that a person achieves the pleasure of Allah. He also Ward's away shaitan from him

00:08:46--> 00:08:52

through a vicar, a person attains inner comfort, inner peace, serenity,

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

through a vicar, a person,

00:08:56--> 00:09:12

he opens up the door to all good while a person who stays away from liquor, he is opening the door to all evil. So these are only a few of the many benefits that a broker you mentioned.

00:09:13--> 00:09:27

The second lesson that we learned from this parable is that the best kind of victory. And the most beneficial is when you combine, when you combine

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

the vicar of the heart, would the vicar of the tongue.

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

This is the most rewarding.

00:09:41--> 00:09:46

You get the most benefit out of your remembrance of Allah when you combine the two.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

And that benefit that you get is both in this life, and in the next. We mentioned some of the benefits of liquor. And as I said, America, you

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

I mentioned over 70 all of those benefits are only truly and fully achieved by those who remember along with both their heart and their tongue combined.

00:10:13--> 00:10:32

After that, after that, the next best thing is to remember a lot with your heart, but not with your tongue. So you are always mindful of a lot. So how to what to add with, with your heart and your soul.

00:10:33--> 00:10:36

Even if you perhaps did not save the car,

00:10:38--> 00:10:40

you do not remember a lot with your tongue.

00:10:41--> 00:10:44

And then the third and the third

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

best is

00:10:48--> 00:11:15

to remember a lot with your tongue, but not with your heart. To remember a lot with your tongue, and not with your heart. This is the lowest level and that is because you may remember a while with your tongue, you may be saying the various at the car, but your mind is somewhere else. So you do get the reward for what you've said, Allah subhana wa tada will reward you.

00:11:16--> 00:11:46

Meaning that we have many different verses, and heavy, especially Hadees, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever says such and such then he will get the reward, such and such reward. These are the various at the car that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us. So if you said those various of the car, as long as you said it with your tongue, then you will get the reward in shadow. But you may not get the full benefit

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


00:11:49--> 00:12:01

that Vicar. If your heart was heedless, you were not paying attention to what you were saying. And this we see with regards to what we say in our Salah,

00:12:02--> 00:12:05

the various other car, the various do as

00:12:07--> 00:12:10

the poor and that we recite in our in our salon.

00:12:12--> 00:12:14

The entire salon contains victim.

00:12:15--> 00:12:21

And most of us unfortunately, we lack a horseshoe, we lack

00:12:23--> 00:12:34

that state of paying attention in our Salah, we are seeing the words, but our mind is somewhere else. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that

00:12:35--> 00:13:06

not everyone will get the same reward out of their Salah, some will only get a 10th some only get a ninth, an eighth, a seven to sixth, a fifth, a fourth, a third or half reward for their salaat This is what the profit sort of lovely it was symmetric. And so the most beneficial is when you combine the vicar of the tongue with the vicar of the heart.

00:13:10--> 00:13:14

Also among the lessons that we learned from this, from this hadith

00:13:15--> 00:13:22

is that the virtue of decal is for all places.

00:13:24--> 00:13:32

Meaning that we should be seeing a decal with our tons and you know also with our hearts

00:13:34--> 00:13:44

everywhere wherever we may be. Except obviously, there are certain places when we should not be mentioning the name of a lot such as in the bathroom.

00:13:46--> 00:14:00

But that is with the tongue as for the heart, then even if you are in the bathroom, you should not lose sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning you should not lose your mindfulness of a loss of hair.

00:14:04--> 00:14:11

So, the virtue of victory is for all places. But as we mentioned in the narration of Sahih Muslim,

00:14:13--> 00:14:17

there is a specific virtue for dicle at home.

00:14:18--> 00:14:30

And so in the in the narration of Sahih Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the house in which remembrance of Allah is made, and the house in which

00:14:31--> 00:14:39

remember, remembrance of Allah is not made is like the living and the dead. So this shows us that we should

00:14:41--> 00:14:41

we should

00:14:42--> 00:14:57

revive our homes with the dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Our homes should not be free from the decree of Allah. And so we have to teach our children

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

the various other God

00:15:00--> 00:15:17

And there are so many different of caulk. And that brings us to the last lesson from this hadith and that is that there is called, that we have been taught by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are of two kinds, one, those that are said,

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

at any time, or

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

in general,

00:15:24--> 00:15:26

such as saying,

00:15:27--> 00:15:42

still federal law, let Illa Illa, Allah Subhana, Allah, He will be handed subhana wa ala whim, and so on and so forth has been along with me to a key, all of these various ethic car hold on are quwata, Illa, billah,

00:15:43--> 00:15:58

and so on and so forth. These are general mathcad that we can say anytime, you know, especially when we're not doing anything, keep your tongue waste, with the remembrance of Allah as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised

00:15:59--> 00:16:25

one of the companions, he said, keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah. So this is at all times in general. And the second kind of car are those that are said, at specific times, for specific circumstances for specific situations. And so for example, we have the other car that we recite in our soul.

00:16:27--> 00:16:30

And then we have the other car that we recite after ourselves.

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

And then we have the, the vicar of

00:16:37--> 00:16:43

throughout the day, there are different kinds of us, such as when we wake up from bed, before eating, after eating.

00:16:45--> 00:16:52

When we leave home, when we enter home, when we enter the masjid, when we leave the masjid,

00:16:53--> 00:17:11

the other car of the morning, and the car of the evening, then the car before going to sleep. All of these are different kinds of car, that we should teach our children, we should teach our children these various of God and we should teach ourselves also

00:17:12--> 00:17:22

in order to keep our homes filled with the remembrance of a lesson kind of went to Hana. So that so that we

00:17:24--> 00:17:33

attain with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in this study, and without we come to the end of tonight's session,

00:17:34--> 00:18:06

we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from among his righteous slaves, who are always remembering him so hard to holler inwardly and outwardly, both in our hearts and upon our tongues. So panicle often they'll become dick, and we're lagging I still feel close to bow lake.
