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

Hola Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala filmbay wilmuth sorry Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just leaving Kaziranga for my brother, my brothers and sisters Alhamdulillah we are in our session of leaving Islam.

00:00:17--> 00:01:22

And as I have said many times before, and as I will say many times, again, the purpose of these sessions is for us to understand our Deen and to be able to practice it properly. The purpose of Islam, Allah did not once want Allah, Allah subhanaw taala sent this religion so that all humanity has a Framework of Reference, a way of living their lives in a way that is beneficial for them and for others, a way of life that creates grace and beauty and peace and harmony and tranquility, and justice and mercy and compassion around wherever we live in our lives, in our families, in our societies. It's not something that is going to be achieved instantaneously or even in our lifetimes,

00:01:22--> 00:01:28

but it is something that we dedicate our lives to. And we continue to strive and we continue to work

00:01:29--> 00:01:35

as long as we live. So don't look for a state of perfection don't look for

00:01:36--> 00:02:07

some destination to arrive at, look at it as a an ongoing journey that we are journeying on that we are walking on the path that we walk on, and we will be rewarded in keeping with the effort that we make Allah subhanaw taala is also not holding us responsible for a particular arrived status. Allah subhanaw taala will give us inshallah rewards based on our, our effort on what we do

00:02:08--> 00:02:29

in the course of this journey. So I remind you or myself that let us look at Islam, not as a goal to be achieved, but as a journey to move on. Where every instance in that journey is important. It's not in Islam is the one of the many key differentiators of Islam and other

00:02:30--> 00:03:22

faiths and other philosophies is the fact that in Islam, the means of achieving an end and the end itself are both equally important. The means do not justify an end and an end do not does not justify the means we are not permitted to do something wrong in order to achieve something within courts right. The wrong means will make the right and wrong and vice versa. So therefore it is very important for us to understand that this Deen came and Islam is a way of life. And therefore it is important for us to live that way of life. Now. It's for this reason to help us to do that in a systematic manner that I compiled his book, I didn't write this book, I compiled this book called

00:03:22--> 00:03:30

Living Islam. And in this book, the book is divided into seven sections there is the section for it begins with a section on

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

heart softeners.

00:03:36--> 00:03:41

And then there is a section on aqeedah which is our creed and there's a section on a bar that which is

00:03:42--> 00:03:45

which is our act of worship.

00:03:46--> 00:03:50

Then there is a clock, which is manners.

00:03:52--> 00:04:35

There is marmelade which is our dealings and there's the Masha which is our society. So all of these important things for us to know because this is how we live, this is how we live individually and this is how we live collectively as people in the company of people who are not even Muslim. So, the purpose of a Muslims life must be to spread goodness around himself for everybody, whether the other people are Muslim or not. And irrespective of what the other people do or do not do, a Muslim does not have the right to harm anyone.

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

himself meaning proactively or even reactively. So even to you are of course, permitted to defend yourself, but other than that, if somebody does something bad for you, then you are not permitted to do another bad thing for that

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

Because this is

00:05:04--> 00:05:31

because this is not from Islam Surah Surah Salam Allah subhanaw taala satisfiability acen Allah subhanaw taala said reply to evil with good with something which is much better than what you got. Allah didn't say reply to evil with evil Allah said reply to evil with good sorceress Adam said do good to those who do good to you and do good to those who we will do. Now, this is the true mark of the believer that he does not harm anybody.

00:05:32--> 00:05:57

Obviously, he doesn't do it on his own. But even as a reaction to what someone else did to him or her, he does not respond to that with evil because Allah subhanaw taala holds us to a different standard. Now, in order to understand all of this, it's important to study that. So that's the reason as I said, I got I compiled his book, I encourage you to get a copy of this book, it's on all

00:05:59--> 00:06:03

all electronic platforms, it's on Goodreads.

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

Google Books, iBooks.

00:06:07--> 00:06:32

It's on Kindle. And all of those, it's free. on Amazon, if you like to read the paper book, then on Amazon, this book is it costs some very little. And because Amazon insists on charging something for it. So it costs practically nothing. And it is available on Amazon globally worldwide. So you can get it from anywhere, wherever you live, I

00:06:33--> 00:06:46

would suggest that you get a copy of the book. And then every day you have a taleem session, you have a halaqa in your house. Find a time when all of you are together in the home, you your family,

00:06:47--> 00:07:35

maybe after one of the evening Salawat because that's when we all get back from work and school and whatnot. And see after every one after Asia and then sit together. Pray whichever Salah it is by Java, if you can go to the masjid go to the masjid come back. Or if you are praying at home, pray by Java. And then sit and read one section of this book, not the whole section because each section has multiple IRAs and a hadith in it. But read one of these or one eye and then talk about don't don't go into an analysis of the I don't go into even into the US bamboo of the eye or don't go into any fuyuki mosyle that may arise out of the eye don't don't look at any of that. Because most of us do

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

not even have the education and the qualification to do that.

00:07:40--> 00:08:23

Islam like anything else is a technical subject. And to imagine that somebody, somebody, without any technical knowledge can just read and understand it is very stupid. That that doesn't happen. It doesn't happen in in any branch of science. Unless you have specific technical knowledge about a subject you cannot understand it just because you happen to read the language just because you happen to understand the language linguistically, it doesn't mean that you understand the meaning of what's being said. Same thing applies to the Quran. Same thing applies to the Hadith. So don't go into the analysis. That's not the reason why it's here. Look at how do I implement this in my life.

00:08:23--> 00:08:48

For example, in today's living Islam session, it's a it's the beginning of the section on ibadah and I began with this item SoTL bacara where Allah subhanaw taala says we live in a shutdown regime. Yeah, you have NASA Brava como la de la como la de la mina de como como Tata Hoon unless it all mankind Yeah, you are NASS

00:08:49--> 00:09:36

or Moodle. Yeah, you are Nasser Budo rubber como levy holla worship era who created you, when levina minakami come and he created those before you look at the whole show that you may become righteous, so that you make it You may become motorhome. Now. When you come to this ayah think about this and say, what is it that Allah subhanaw taala is saying here, which is which I need to implement in my life, and it's very clear, Allah subhanaw taala sing worship Allah subhanaw taala worship Allah subhana wa Taala without ascribing any partners to him because he has no partners. Worship Allah subhanho wa Taala without shirt because Allah subhanaw taala is not nobody's trick with Allah.

00:09:36--> 00:09:45

Nobody is a partner of Allah. Nobody is the family of Allah. Nobody is the son or daughter of Allah. And therefore we worship Allah alone, because he is alone.

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

Now, what must I do, I must focus on my worship, and I must understand that I am worshipping Allah sallallahu because he created me because he sustains me and he created those before me and

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

he sustained those before me. And one day I will be called to him and I will be before him and I will have to answer to him and I must worship him Allah Allah comes at the horn Allah says so that you become righteous, I must worship Allah because so that I may become a righteous person so that I may become a Mata Ki my brothers sisters, I remind myself and you that all the acts of worship in Islam are not

00:10:27--> 00:10:55

acts of worship in themselves, they are the means to achieve something. And therefore Allah is saying here worship Allah, so that you become Motoki. So what is it? What is the purpose of the abeta? The purpose of the VEDA is for us to free ourselves from sin for us to repent to Allah subhanaw taala and for us to become Motoki

00:10:56--> 00:11:01

right this is the purpose of the Avada Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:02--> 00:11:17

mentioned the Salah elsewhere also in the Quran and Allah subhanaw taala said, he told us to worship him and he said that in salata tan ha Anil fascia he will Moncure Allah subhanaw taala said,

00:11:18--> 00:11:56

the Salah, what is the purpose of Salah Verily, the Salah separates you from the holeshot and mancora separates you from the shameful things and from acts of rebellion and, and disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala so the Salah has a purpose. So let us focus on that purpose and see what is the purpose of salah and the purpose of Salah is to make us righteous, what is the definition of somebody who's righteous? The definition of somebody who's righteous is somebody who does not disobey Allah subhanaw taala somebody who

00:11:57--> 00:12:45

worships Allah, and who obeys Allah subhanaw taala and who lives his life in a way which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala This is a definition of somebody who is righteous. Who is about to be what is the definition of tequila. Tequila is not fear of Allah as it is usually translated that translation is 40 taqwa is not fear of Allah. taqwa is the fear of displeasing the one I love the most and who is the one I love the most? Allah subhanaw taala. So, taqwa is deep understanding of this and saying that it is the fear of disobeying the one I love the most and how did I get the love the most from here? I got it because Allah grant and I said, Well, levena Amano eyeshadow, Allah,

00:12:45--> 00:13:31

Allah subhanaw taala said Who are the believers They are the ones who love Allah subhanho wa Taala the most more than anyone and anything else. So therefore taqwa is the fear of disobeying the one I love the most because it would be it would be, it is something which is displeasing to him. Now, why would I want to displease the one I love the most? And that is the one How do I get is taqwa by praying to Allah subhanaw taala by Salah in a salata than an alpha shaver Wonka, who is the one who is separate from and who is protected from and who protects himself or herself from everything, which is disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala who is that person? That person is a toughy and who

00:13:31--> 00:13:49

becomes a McDuffie? The one who prays so Allah subhanaw taala in this ideal Karima of SoTL Bukhara Allah subhanaw taala said, all mankind worship your rub, who created you and those before you so that you may become righteous so that you may become motorhome?

00:13:50--> 00:14:00

I want to share with you a beautiful Hadith of the managable or the Allahu and Omar bingeable odilon, who was a Ansari Sahabi. He was one of the

00:14:02--> 00:14:05

there was a group of young Sahaba

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

including a warrior or the Alon who

00:14:09--> 00:14:16

had been Giovanna Delano, Abdullah Omar Abdullah Anima, including up de la busca de la home

00:14:19--> 00:14:26

and several others. Abdullah Masuda, delana, who were young people and they were

00:14:27--> 00:14:52

very intelligent, and they were people who were very close to a solar cell. They were the they were among the favorite students of our sorceress alum. They got some very special time with the Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam and they utilize this time beautifully. Mark Benjamin Delano later on was sent as the governor of of Yemen and that's a whole beautiful idea is related to that inshallah.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

At some point, we will look at that also. But today I want to talk to you about this hadith of Matt Benjamin.

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

Allahu which is in, in JAMA Timothy more admin Gerald odilon. Who said, I asked he asked these people this, this shows the, also those of you who are interested in mentoring and finding a mentor and you know, learning how to be with a mentor, you can learn beautifully from the,

00:15:21--> 00:15:29

from the from the behavior of the Sahaba, which was awesome because it was a was their mentor. He was not just a teacher, he was their mentor, he was a chef, he was their

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

Muslim, their moral be

00:15:34--> 00:15:44

to whom they made resue for in order to learn how to live when they were they were not studying some book from him, you know, they didn't go there for some Kitab

00:15:45--> 00:15:47

they went

00:15:48--> 00:16:21

to him and they stayed with him to learn how to become human beings to become tarbiyah to regionalists. It's called in Arabic we say the raising of men. And this Riyal is not a gender specific term, men meaning people with certain qualities which are associated with normal people with normal people, meaning not an old evil as in people who are given titles by kings, but people who have noble character, this is tarbiat original

00:16:22--> 00:16:26

is something which is which is very, very important in Islam.

00:16:27--> 00:17:07

Which of course, like most things, which are important in Islam, we seem to have lost them, but we need to get them back. So the point is, that what bingeable was one of them who had this fantastic privilege of having had tarbiyah farmersville license himself directly. So my admin and this shows us this other shows us how to deal with in that situation if you are, if you are lucky enough, if you are fortunate enough to get access to some to a person of knowledge, a person of great character, that how much to behave in their company, the first thing that you should need to do is learn other, you do not treat them like you treat your own. You know, buddies, he's not your buddy.

00:17:08--> 00:17:49

It doesn't matter. He may be younger than you. He may be your age, he may be you appear, he may be playing football with you and basketball with you. It does not matter. He is your chef, and you treat him like a chef, you treat him with respect. You treat him with utmost respect. This is very, very important. Without other we cannot get any knowledge whatsoever. So don't think oh well, you know, this is my brother. He's my cousin. You know, he doesn't matter. Rasul. Allah was the cousin of Abdullah Abner boss or Delano. But Abdullah and he was the cousin of Alibaba, with Alibaba. He was also the father in love Alibaba with Alibaba, but none none of them treated him as you would

00:17:49--> 00:18:10

treat somebody of that relationship. I just heard Ilana, he was her husband. He she didn't treat him just like husband used to used to call him Dr. Rasulullah. He said, Yeah, oh, messenger of Allah. The all of these people have to live their bus. He didn't call Nebuchadnezzar Oh, my cousin. No, he said, jasola. He said, Oh, the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:18:11--> 00:18:56

All of them. The first and most important thing, as far as being with a teacher with a mentor is other is respect. As I as I told you, it doesn't matter, whatever his age, whatever anything, treat them with respect, number one. Number two, treating them with respect, does not only mean straightening, straightening their shoes or something, it means to treat their time with respect your time with them, must be treated with respect, meaning that you utilize that time properly. It's not it's not social time, it's not time for you to hang out, it's not time for you to just have fun. No, it's a time for you it is 100% time for you to learn. And therefore that time must be spent

00:18:56--> 00:19:40

beneficially meaning that you must come prepared for that session. Don't just land up. Don't just walk out of your bed into the into the presence and Company of your chef. This is this is this is lack of other for the chef and for the time. So you come there prepared meaning you come there with your questions in your mind. You come there with a notebook, you come there with a an agenda of what you have how you want to spend that time. Now that agenda may or may not happen, your chef may have his own plan for you. And this plan may coincide with your agenda or may not doesn't matter. You come there with that agenda. And where possible, you ask those questions, speak precisely.

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

Speak in a way which is clearly understandable. And ask the question, and then listen very carefully to the answer and take notes. This is a very important part of mentoring and this is true, whether I'm taking I'm speaking about dissonance.

00:20:01--> 00:20:45

Islamic context, but this applies across the board, whether your mentors or business mentor, whether it's a mentor who's teaching you as writing or whatever, you treat that time with respect and you treat the mentor with respect and you go, they're prepared to take advantage of that time. You don't just go there with a blank brain. And you take notes, this is very, very important, as far as spending time is concerned, and the Sahaba did that. That is how they are hobbies or a solo salon got recorded during his own blessed lifetime. In front of him. The Saba used to write down whatever he said, and they would read it back to him, and they would say, are sola, this is what you said, I

00:20:45--> 00:21:14

have recorded it like this, is it correct? And Rosaura Salam would either confirm that or he would correct them and they would make the corrections. As Avi asked him, he said, jasola sometimes you say something in anger, should I also record that the reseller Salaam said by the one in whose hand is the life of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam? Allah subhanaw taala controls my tongue, so you can write whatever I tell you.

00:21:15--> 00:22:00

This is on a side note, this is the answer to give those who tell you that they had these were collected 100 years later, 200 years later, no, that is false. That is a lie. If somebody is saying that deliberately had these were collected in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu. In his presence in front of him, people noted down Why did they do that? Because he was their mentor. They were his prodigies. They were the people who were learning from him. They were his students. And they took notes. And when they took notes, they also clarified the note with him sallallahu Sallam to ensure that what they wrote was correct. By brother sister, the Sahaba were very precise and very

00:22:00--> 00:22:43

systematic people. I'm not saying everybody but those who are with the powers of Salah. They were very precise, very systematic people. Allah subhanaw taala created this beautiful generation and he created them for the purpose of this to take forward the teachings of Mohammed Salah Salah into the world and to convey them to others in a way where these would last for centuries to come. How could anything be taken forward? If it wasn't even recorded in the first place? This is a completely insane argument. May Allah save us from those who deny the Hadith May Allah subhanaw taala please reject anybody who is a monk or of Hadith reject that person because that person is Moncure of

00:22:43--> 00:23:23

Muhammad Sallallahu salah and anybody who's mancora Mohammed Salah is not even Muslim, so don't even know Don't even try to learn anything from such people because they can only misguide you, they they are they they cannot guide you because they want to have they want to guide you in a way that is different from the guidance of Mohammed Salah Salah as the cola de Kitab Allah wa hydel Javi Javi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam you hear this all the time, the best speech is the Kitab of Allah. And the best guidance is the guidance of Mohammed Salah. So anyone who comes to you from with something other than that, please remove them. They are not fit to be teachers in Islam they may be

00:23:23--> 00:23:44

some other teacher by all means learn whatever else you want from them but not Islam because you cannot learn Islam from somebody who denies the importance of Mohammed Salah Salem and anyone who's denying the Hadees Orissa is denying the importance of Mohamed Salah Salah. So here we have a situation where Medina Java or the Allahu he said we were on a

00:23:45--> 00:23:46

we were traveling

00:23:50--> 00:23:58

fee suffering for us baja two and he said in the in the in the morning. He asked he said

00:23:59--> 00:24:50

I asked him a question I think about that here is this young man who is with the power of the salon and he wants to take advantage of this company of the power seller. So he is prepared himself he has a question in his mind and he wants to ask this question. So on the authority of the manager, one of the Llano He Who said I said I asked Yasser Allah sallallahu sallam, tell me of an act, which will which will take me into Jana and keep keep me away from the north. He said, Take me, teach me an action. Tell me about an action, which will take me into Jannah and which will save me from the hellfire. Now why is he asking this question think about the question itself. But he could have

00:24:50--> 00:24:56

asked him any any other any questions, but he asked a very specific question, teach me an act, which will

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

enter me into Jannah and save me

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

From the fire, why do you think that because Allah subhanaw taala gave us this formula. Allah gave us this format as the only format of success. Success is not having wealth is not having health it's not having influence it's not having power and authority. It is not even having religious knowledge. Success is not hips of the hora success is not hips of that had this success is not to become a Mufti and a and a chef and whatnot no success as defined by Allah subhanaw taala. Allah said, while fonzo, Hosea and Inari were all the halal giornata sacrifice.

00:25:46--> 00:26:15

Allah subhanaw taala said this very clearly. And that is the question of Mark bingeable. Allah subhanaw taala said, only the one who has been freed from the Hellfire and entered into Jenna, only that person is successful. Now you might say well, you know, isn't it an automatic thing? If I make heaps of the harar? If I study Islam, if I become a Mufti, if I become a Mohammed, this Mufasa, then automatically I'm in general, No, you're not. You're not? May Allah protect you.

00:26:17--> 00:26:21

You could well be the first person to be thrown into the fire.

00:26:23--> 00:26:25

Because the holidays or is called daddies are worthless.

00:26:27--> 00:26:28

There are three people

00:26:29--> 00:27:08

who will be thrown into the Hellfire before anybody else. And who's the first of those three, an alum, a Islamic scholar who studied Islam in order to become rich and famous in this world. So he studied Islam and in order to know how did it and why did he study Islam, he knows in his heart and Allah subhanaw taala knows that. So this person of his or her services will be presented to Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of the first person, and he will be asked, What did you do? He will say Allah, I studied Islam for your sake, I memorize the Quran I did this, I did this, I did this and I taught people Islam for your sake.

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

He will be told you are a liar. You studied Islam in order that you become rich and famous. You studied Islam to make money from it. You studied Islam, so that people will know and people will say that you are a great scholar. This was done for you.

00:27:29--> 00:27:55

So Allah given that position, Allah gave him the money and Allah gave him that position in this life. Allah will say, today, there is nothing for you go into the Hellfire and he will be thrown into the hellfire. So don't get fooled. Just because you are studying Islam is not a guarantee that for gender, it is a guarantee that you now have proof against yourself. If you do not practice what you have learnt.

00:27:57--> 00:28:17

May Allah make this a means of hair for you, man made this made this become a proof in favor of you. And may this become the reason why you enter journal. But it's not automatic. It just won't happen just because you do that. There may be somebody who knows very little color and maybe he knows only one eye. Maybe he knows only one single eye.

00:28:18--> 00:28:26

Right? For example, there is somebody maybe who knows only this is where Allah subhanaw taala said Allah Allah, Allah Allah.

00:28:27--> 00:28:36

Allah Allah said does he not know that Allah is watching? Now think about is this the as Baba Newser of this ayah is our for Abuja, in this ayah came from

00:28:38--> 00:29:17

Allah does not know that Allah is watching, but I am reading this ayah I memorize this ayah very small Allah May Allah May Allah Hara and I'm not thinking about Abuja, I'm thinking about myself, and I'm saying that Allah is watching me. Now if I have this consciousness 24 seven that Allah subhanaw taala is watching me, then Believe me, I will become incapable of committing sin, I will become incapable of not following or not fulfilling a fourth, I will become incapable of indulging in anything which is haram. And if I happen to do any of those things by mistake, then immediately instantly, without delay I will make is different. Oh and Allah subhanaw taala promised to accept

00:29:17--> 00:29:31

Allah. So therefore I will be free from sin. Just because I memorize that one, I am aware of this ayah and I'm living my life according to that ayah so now when I go before Allah, subhanaw taala Angela, Angela, Angela.

00:29:32--> 00:29:42

Even though in terms of religious knowledge, would you call me a shock? No. How do you call somebody who knows only one if he's not. He's obviously not have his Koran because he knows only one eye.

00:29:43--> 00:29:52

But that person is a personal agenda, because he practiced what he learned. And therefore please understand is the need to practice what we learn.

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

If we don't practice what we learn, worthless, so here is my the principle of the law who I remember that I

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

mentioned that this was a lesson I mentioned only one out of that we'll come to that later. I don't want to go into that now we are here. So

00:30:09--> 00:30:14

they allow Han Who? He asked me this question. It's a beautiful question

00:30:15--> 00:30:35

because he is looking directly at the final outcome and the final outcome is what? Freedom from the Hellfire and entry into agenda for one Zuzana The one who has been freed from the fire, or odfjell agenda and has been entered into gender sacrifice. Only that person is

00:30:36--> 00:30:37

successful.

00:30:39--> 00:30:53

AKA makalah jell O Allah. So matamata bridgeable Sara Delano Yasser Allah sallallahu Sallam told me of an act, which will take me into Jana, and which will keep me away from the Gnar from the fire.

00:30:56--> 00:31:36

response is a beautiful response. There is an a solemn wants to also compliment his students on asking a good question. And he also wants to emphasize the fact that this is a very, very important question. So what is he that he simply doesn't answer the question straightaway, what does he say? He said, You have asked me about a great matter. So now he's reinforcing. You've asked me what a great matter meaning you asked me a very good question. Right? So he's complimenting him on this question, and also is emphasizing the fact that this is not any ordinary thing. This is a very great matter. So now since you asked this good question. Listen carefully, to the answer. To say you have

00:31:36--> 00:31:41

asked me about a great matter. Yet it is easy for who for the one

00:31:43--> 00:31:45

whom Allah makes it easy for

00:31:46--> 00:32:26

allama la sala Illa, Machado, Salah, all others, nothing easy, except that which you make easy. So Elisa, said, you have asked me about a great matter, yet it is easy for him, for whom Allah Allah Allah Allah who makes it easy, and then a Surah Surah. So, now, having complimented his student on this on the question, and having emphasized the importance of the answer, so that he listens to it carefully. Now soullessness, Allah is telling him about the matter, he is saying that he then he said, worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, without associating any partners with him.

00:32:27--> 00:32:49

So, the first and most important thing as far as Islam is concerned, is to be free from shirk, leave everything which amounts to schilke or which even in our in which there is even a doubt of schicke ever every bit, every ship, every action of ship, whether it is directly

00:32:51--> 00:33:32

something which is shipped, or whether it is something which may be shipped, you're not sure, Leave it, leave it. So first he says, You are you you is to worship Allah subhanaw taala without associating any partners with him. So the first one, then he said, established the salah, not just pray when you will like pray, establish the salah, pray the five Salas on time, preferably in the masjid, but definitely on time. Don't delay the Salah. Don't postpone it. Make sure you pray on time. Establish the prayer. Then he said pay zakat.

00:33:34--> 00:34:23

Calculate the Zakat which is due and pay that zakat. Number three, he said fast in Ramadan. We are very close to Ramadan we are in Rajab, there is only one month in between Siobhan and then Ramadan starts We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us Ramadan al Karim with good health and Eman and the ability to worship Him in a way that pleases Him and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to be pleased with us and with our worship. So he said to fast in Nevada and make Hajj to the house. Now the reason Salaam is is is establishing the five pillars of Islam the Shahada, which is to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala without any partners La ilaha illAllah a shadow Allah Allah illallah wa shadow now

00:34:23--> 00:34:54

Muhammad Rasul Allah, and then he said to establish the salah, which is the second pillar of Islam is a cat fast in Ramadan, and make Hajj sola sola, establish the five pillars of Islam and then it also Lhasa Salaam now is giving him a bonus. Here is a man who asked him a good question he gave he answered that question, and now he's giving him a bonus. So he says Shall I not guide you towards the means of goodness.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

He says fasting is a shield Jared

00:35:00--> 00:35:28

wipes away sin, as water extinguishes fire, and the praying of a man in the depths of the night. So he's teaching him three things. He says, I will guide you to something which is good. He says fasting is a shield. Fasting is a shield from sin. Fasting is a shield from the anger of Allah subhanaw taala. So we must try and fast as much as possible. Alhamdulillah we are also in

00:35:29--> 00:36:17

the blessed months which are coming close to Ramadan. So before of Iranian Rajab and in Shabbat, try to fast as much as you can. As soon as the sun moves too fast a lot, especially in Siobhan. The only caveat he said, was that closer to Ramadan, maybe the last two weeks or the last one week of Shabbat, don't fast, because you want to prepare for Ramadan. So he said he used to recommend fasting so let's try to do that. Let's try to fast on Mondays and Thursdays. Definitely. Let's try to fast on the 12th on the 13th 14th and 15th of every month, the white knights and let us try to have ramadan ramadan, of course, we should fast and then the six days of Shahar. And then we've

00:36:17--> 00:37:05

asked the nine days of the ledger from the first to the ninth inshallah and we've asked on the ninth and 10th of Muharram, Alka Mahara, so all of these fasts and then of course as much as Allah subhanaw taala gives us a trophy for service so opposite fasting is a shield and then is a charity wipes away sin like fire extinguishes like water extinguishes fire in the Hashanah use hipness a yet Allah does it, good deeds, wipe out the bad deeds. So charity is a good deed. And charity is something which Allah subhanaw taala likes very much. feeding people get helping people taking away people's pain and suffering, helping them in times of difficulty. All of these are beautiful acts of

00:37:05--> 00:37:11

charity. And so spend in the path of Allah subhanaw taala my brothers sisters, remember this one thing.

00:37:12--> 00:37:55

Our net asset is what goes with us our net asset is what we take with us. Our net asset is not what we own today, because what we own today, and I'm not even talking about earning it in haram ways. If you aren't it haram then the Hellfire is there for you, if you earned it, holla if you earned it halaal and you die leaving it behind, then this is something for which Allah will hold you accountable for and if he wishes, he may punish you if he wishes, he may forgive me We ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us. But the point is, it is something which Allah will hold us accountable for because it belonged to us. And in the world, our heirs, those we inherited from us, they take

00:37:55--> 00:38:37

it, it is of no use to us because we accumulated it, we didn't even spend it on ourselves. We kept it as a trust for our heirs, they take it and enjoy it while we are giving his up for that before Allah subhanaw taala whereas if we spend it in the path of Allah subhanaw taala if we spend this money on our families, on other people and so on and so forth, to help people for staccato jharia, Allah subhanaw taala will keep us in a beautiful state in this life. And all of that stuff which we spend will be waiting for us on the Day of Judgment. And Allah subhanaw taala will reward us for it. This is the meaning this is the beauty of charity. And then Abby Sarah Sarah mentioned specifically

00:38:37--> 00:38:50

the prayer in the night. And he he resided the ayat of surah to such that Tata Jaffa Juno Bomani, mazaya Dora bomb Whoa, da da da da da

00:38:51--> 00:39:42

da da da da da so Mao Fiala home in karate iron? jazza? I'm Bhima can we um Allah, Allah Allah said those who leave their beds to invoke their rub Jalla Jalla Allahu in fear and hope binal Javi Ouattara between fear and hope, fear of Allah as punishment and hope for Allah's forgiveness. And this spend are members of Unicode and they spend charity out of what we have bestowed on them. falada Alamo. Nef somehow Fiala home, min karate iron jazza? I'm Bhima can we I'm alone. No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do. And this is in Sorrento such that the Viva la sala mentioned this ayah. And he mentioned the hedgehog.

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

And then is it shall I not inform you of the head of the matter? Its pillar and it's speak. And I said who is I was in the Java? He said I said yes. Yasser Allah salatu salam ala rasulillah salam. He said the man

00:40:00--> 00:40:20

The head of the matter is Islam. Its pillar is Salah, and its peak is Jihad visa v de la. Then he said sallallahu sallam, shall I not tell you of the foundation of all of that? And I said, Yeah, yes, yeah. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam. So he took hold of his tongue.

00:40:22--> 00:40:24

He said, restraint, this.

00:40:25--> 00:40:37

I said, I imagine he's telling what Benjamin, shall I tell you the foundation of all this? Now, all of these good things. He said, What is the fundamental foundation of this, and now we shall assylum did this.

00:40:39--> 00:40:45

He held his tongue. This is also the way in which the mo had his own have always

00:40:46--> 00:41:12

narrated a hadith where the soul of Salah Salem did an action the body soul when they mentioned the Hadees they also repeat the action as a way of honoring that beautiful action of a solo solo solo, Solo Solo Solo Solo. He held his tongue like this, and he said restraint this Ahmad which I was very surprised, because here is something which seems to be so simple.

00:41:14--> 00:41:23

Yet So Sam is calling it the foundation of the matter. He said, Yasser Allah, will we be taken to account for what we say with it?

00:41:24--> 00:41:56

And he said Yasuo, sola sola Sallam said, and he used the colloquial term, which is a term of endearment. Although it seems to be a reprimand the visa Rossum said May your mother be be removed Have you Yamaha? Is there anything that throws people in to the NA into the fire upon their faces, except the harvest of their tongues? I want to repeat that.

00:41:57--> 00:42:09

There may or may not be believed this is a term of endearment, even though it looks as looks like a primer. He's aroma. Is there anything that throws people into the fire

00:42:11--> 00:42:16

on their faces, except the harvest of their tongues?

00:42:17--> 00:42:20

And this Addison Jonathan with the brothers sisters, I

00:42:21--> 00:42:27

remind you when I asked you to think about this, that here is this.

00:42:29--> 00:43:21

Here's this beautiful Hadith here is Russell la Salaam, giving this guidance to his favorite one of his favorite students. And he is ending his guidance on something which is apparently so simple, which is, he said restrain your tongue. Now restraint What can this tongue do? He said, more people are, are thrown into the fire on their faces because of this tongue more than anything else. Because this tongue is a very, very powerful thing. This tank can be used for the seeker of Allah. This can this tongue can be used to heal wounds. This tongue can be used to build relationships. This tongue can be used to join hearts. This tongue can be used to put out fires. This tongue can be used to

00:43:21--> 00:43:22

cure poison.

00:43:23--> 00:43:46

And his tongue can be used for the opposite. This tongue can be used to destroy relationships. This tongue can be used to set fires where there are no fires. This cut his tongue can be used to create a wound which will never heal which will fester until the last day. This tongue can be used to poison relationships, and those poisons can never be healed.

00:43:47--> 00:44:21

This tongue can be used to commit Schick, this tongue can be used for all kinds of evil, which lands a person into the hellfire. Whereas this tank can also be used for all kinds of good, which can take a person into Jannah. Both of these are in our control. And the best thing we can do with this tank is not to use it at all. As far as talking is concerned. Use it only for the seeker of Allah subhanaw taala restrain the tongue, my brothers, sisters, silence, never armed anybody

00:44:22--> 00:44:59

except where that silence is in the face of injustice, then the silence is culpable. It is punishable, where you need to speak out against injustice. If you remain silent, then you are a criminal as much as the one who is committing that injustice and crime. But other than that, keeping silent is the best advice that anybody can give you. So quote, just sukoon so cold, right? helwa being alone, being by yourself, being in the company of those who understand this. So you are

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

Not with people who are going on continuously dakka dakka dakka dakka dakka la Hola. Hola. absolutely disgusting. Please don't do that. Just don't talk Keep quiet. Silence is a beautiful thing. And when you are silent, don't just be silent as in doing nothing, be silent as the Sahaba used to be as the Salafis Allah He used to be as rasulillah salam used to be where the heart is connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala continuous Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala sending salatu salam ala rasulillah Salah sir, to finally to sum it all up. What did he say to Madame ninjavan of the law? No, the question was, yours will Allah teach me something which will save me from the Hellfire

00:45:44--> 00:46:02

and enter me into Jana? Now, Surah Surah Sallam said to him, worship Allah subhanaw taala without partners, establish the salah is a cat fast in Ramadan, and make hij to the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala gela Delano and then the sola sola Salaam told him

00:46:03--> 00:46:03

to

00:46:05--> 00:46:52

listen to him to stand in the night and worship Allah subhanho wa Taala right. He told him that charity wipes away sins, like if we're like, water extinguishes fire, so given charity, and he said, stand before Allah subhanaw taala in the night and worship Allah subhanaw taala and the final advice he gave him was the importance of controlling the tongue. He said restrain the tongue because this is the thing which we'll learn which can land you in the Hellfire don't allow that to happen. Now brothers sisters, once again, this is a session on leaving Islam. Islam is not the name of an ideology. Islam is not the name of a philosophy. Islam is not the name of simply acquiring some

00:46:52--> 00:47:35

knowledge for the sake of knowledge. Islam is the name of a practice, like Judo like karate, like any other martial art for example, it is the name of a practice. It has the potential to protect you from all harm. It has the potential to open the doors of goodness for you everywhere in your life, provided you practice it. There is no such thing as a non practicing Muslim. Being a Muslim is not a matter of race. Being a Muslim is not a matter of having an Arabic name. Being a Muslim is a matter of practicing Islam. The one who practices Islam is a Muslim, the one who does not practice Islam cannot be a Muslim. So let us become Muslims by practicing Islam and living Islam and ensuring that

00:47:35--> 00:47:42

our life is a means of goodness for all those we come into contact with.

00:47:43--> 00:47:46

Let's make lots of drugs that are no smarter saves

00:47:47--> 00:48:31

everyone from this Coronavirus which is currently the biggest calamity that is that is visited us We ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from this was Allah on the bill Karim Allah Allah He was ibH mine, I ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless you for attending this session I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make this session a means of guidance for you. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to open your hearts to his go to fill your heart with his know to open your hearts to the Mahabharata and how and hope and love for Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to live the Sira of Allah to live the beautiful life that he led in a way which is beneficial for us. I asked

00:48:33--> 00:48:51

to accept all your drives with higher and apphia and to give you from his grace and His Majesty and His generosity, that which you did not ask was Allah Allah will Karim Allah Allah He was ibH main erotica Amara camino al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
