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

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala schizophyllum via evil Mussolini. He was having huge rain over the

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

last 100 the last day of

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

Allah in Allah hamara Xena taco Palladino, masino

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

lazur Verily Allah subhanho wa Taala is with Mara, Allah Xena taco he is with those people who have Taqwa wunderino masino. And those people who do

00:00:36--> 00:00:55

it by myself and you that is to do is Bhagavad Gita Allah subhanaw taala with respect to the eye from Soto Bukhara where Allah subhanaw taala said with us Allah Chi by the end. So we said Allah subhanaw taala said, that been wisely asked about me I am close to him.

00:00:57--> 00:01:14

the closeness of Allah subhanaw taala the market of Allah subhanaw taala is something which is worth working for, and which is worth making effort for, because there is nothing that is superior to that,

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

in this life or the next life.

00:01:18--> 00:01:27

And the last one told us, how do we get this marriage of Allah subhanaw taala by having taqwa and by focusing on

00:01:28--> 00:01:38

what is taqwa? The power is the fear of disobeying the fear of displeasing Allah subhana wa

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

dakwah is generally and we do translations,

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

generally translated as fear of Allah.

00:01:47--> 00:02:07

It is not fear of Allah. The reason I'm saying that is because fear in itself is a negative emotion. We hate the thing we fear. Nobody loves what they fear. People may be there may be some dictator, Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, people feared him, but in the lavas never know. Similarly, somebody else.

00:02:10--> 00:02:16

You don't love something that you fear in a school. There may be a teacher who the children fear.

00:02:17--> 00:02:34

But those children will never love the teacher they will be they will be afraid to the teacher they will obey the teacher because they're frightened, but they will never love the digit. But Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala mentioned very clearly in the Quran, about the believers he said, Well levena Allah No, I shall do Belinda.

00:02:35--> 00:02:44

Ellsworth there is it but the believers are people who not only love Allah, but they love Allah subhanho wa Taala more than anything else, uh Shall

00:02:46--> 00:03:05

I shall is the superlative form of studies. Very, very strong. The strongest love that the believer fields is for is for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So how do we bring these two things together? On the one hand, we are talking about taqwa as fear of Allah. On the other hand, you're talking about

00:03:07--> 00:03:07

the love of Allah.

00:03:09--> 00:03:13

Allah subhanaw taala also mentioned the third word, which is Russia.

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

Russia,

00:03:16--> 00:03:25

where Allah said that the people who fear Allah who have the greatest fascia are the Allah Ma.

00:03:28--> 00:03:45

In nama yes shall la min arriba de la la, la la, la, la la la, that from his slaves from the slaves of Allah subhanaw taala. The ones who fear and kasha is straightforward fear. hashmatullah is the fear of Allah.

00:03:47--> 00:03:52

Who fear Allah, Allah. So on the one hand, you have the word fear.

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

And on the other hand, you have the fear the word of Allah subhanaw taala, the love of Allah subhanaw taala. In my view, taqwa is the word which brings these two together.

00:04:05--> 00:04:10

The translations, they translate hugetlb Allah also has fear of Allah and taqwa also has fear of Allah.

00:04:12--> 00:04:15

And according to me, this is the wrong translation, generalized fear of Allah.

00:04:17--> 00:04:21

The hope of Allah is the love of Allah. How do we bring these two together?

00:04:23--> 00:04:29

The coin is the word which brings it together. The Puja is the fear of offending, the one we'll have.

00:04:30--> 00:04:38

The boy is the fear of disobeying or doing anything which is disliked by the one we love.

00:04:40--> 00:04:50

So therefore, the greater the love, the greater the fear of disobedience, the greater the love, the greater the fear of offending.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Right? If I don't love zones, or if I don't love, whatever it is, to that extent, then maybe I will disobey

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

Okay, but if I love that

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

entity

00:05:07--> 00:05:18

to the ultimate extent, to the greatest extent, then obviously I will never do anything to displease. I will never do anything which will offend

00:05:19--> 00:05:37

naturally. So the greater the greater the love. The greater the fear of offending, the greater the fear of displeasing the one that I love. So taqwa is the is this element is this element where we fear to

00:05:38--> 00:05:55

disobey, we fear to offend Allah subhanho wa Taala. Not because we are afraid of Allah in a negative sense that we are running away from Allah, but because we love Allah subhanaw taala to that extent. So Allah, Allah is with the ones who have this taco.

00:05:56--> 00:06:05

If the person has this taqwa, where the person lives his whole life, saying that I must never do anything

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

with displeases Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:09--> 00:06:20

and before he does anything in his life, this person always ask the question, this thing which I am supposed to do, which I would like to do this thing which I would like to speak,

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

does this please Allah or it does not resolve?

00:06:25--> 00:06:38

If you notice that it pleases Allah, He will do it. If he knows that it does not please Allah, He will not do it. And if it is a thing where he is not sure whether it pleases allow does not please Allah, He will go and find out.

00:06:39--> 00:06:47

You won't find out he will ask somebody who knows, he will find out does it please does not please and according to the answer, then he will either do it or he will not do it.

00:06:48--> 00:07:01

This is the and this is what Allah and what is the what is the reward? What is the benefit of taqwa that Allah subhanaw taala said I'm with the one in Allah, my lady in a taco.

00:07:02--> 00:07:06

See the beauty of taqwa. Allah subhanaw taala did not say the one was that why will you in

00:07:08--> 00:07:17

different places Allah has said many things. But I'm saying in this particular ayah Allah did not say the one who has taqwa, that I will give him this or that. Allah says I am with him.

00:07:19--> 00:07:47

See the beauty of this a lot I will give this I will give that somebody can give you but then the person is not with you, the one who was given is not with you. But in this case, if I am with him, and the question of giving where is the question lies with me. Then whatever Allah has is also with me. All of creation is my allies with me? Yes. In Allah Medina tako. Allah subhanaw taala is with the one who who has this element of taqwa.

00:07:48--> 00:07:54

And then well as you know, most you know, the level of ASR is a step ahead of this

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

is a step ahead of this, the one who

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

loves Allah subhanaw taala The one who is afraid of

00:08:05--> 00:08:14

displeasing Allah subhanaw taala What does that put that person automatically What does he do? He seeks to go to the ultimate level of being close to one another.

00:08:15--> 00:08:20

Now, what is the lesson what do we know? What do we know about the definition of a lesson from

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

from the very famous, how do

00:08:24--> 00:08:25

we know the definition?

00:08:26--> 00:08:31

When asked Rasul Allah is Allah Salah. He asked him, What is this and

00:08:33--> 00:08:38

please explain a son of Whitney llh Ania Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Allah.

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

And Allah Kanika Torah.

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

Torah,

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

as soon as it

00:08:49--> 00:08:53

is to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as if you are seeing him

00:08:54--> 00:08:58

as if you are seeing him and though you do not see him to know that he sees you

00:09:02--> 00:09:06

to worship Allah subhanaw taala as if we are seeing a larger levada

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

and do we do not see Allah subhanaw taala we know that Allah subhanaw taala seeing us

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

ask Allah Subhana Allah to open the doors of our hearts where this becomes a reality for us.

00:09:23--> 00:09:27

Because imagine this when you're standing, and again, as I've said many times before,

00:09:28--> 00:09:31

it was the way of Allah and we also have a

00:09:33--> 00:09:37

that any time they were asked any question about anything, they described it in the,

00:09:39--> 00:09:42

in the with the use of simile, they use the example of the Salah

00:09:44--> 00:09:56

because for them Salah was the head of the matter was the ultimate thing. So if something applied to Salah, then for them there was no doubt that that thing applied to the rest of life.

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

This compartmentalization

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

of the of the religion is what we have done. We have something in Salah then we the rest of our life, we live some other way. But this was not this is not Islam and this is not what Nabil Salah Allison practiced or touch.

00:10:13--> 00:10:20

They always give the example of Salah because Salah for them was something was a reflection in the whole of life.

00:10:22--> 00:10:35

So when he's saying, Bray as if you see a lot of our data, what does it mean? It means do business as if you are seeing a loss of an altar, deal with your family as if you are seeing a loss of an older

00:10:37--> 00:10:43

walk on the street as if you are seeing a lot of animals that drive your car as if you're seeing a lot of an odor.

00:10:45--> 00:10:51

And it was with this understanding that the people who understood the dean, the aroma of the sambar

00:10:53--> 00:11:13

has an adversarial holiday. Somebody asked as an adversary they said how is it that you are so disconnected with this world? You don't seem to have any worldly desires and this and that, how is it possible? As always, these are four things he has said the first thing and the reason I am describing to the world is because I know that what is my cover has been written for me and nobody can take it.

00:11:15--> 00:11:18

So I don't spend too much of time and energy.

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

I do what I have to do.

00:11:21--> 00:11:37

But I'm not chasing it. There's no need to judge it because it is written it is my nobody can eat it. He said the second reason I am disconnected with this world is because I know that Allah subhanaw taala is watching me and therefore I am afraid to do anything.

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

See the show visa

00:11:42--> 00:12:04

see the show so what do you say he's I know Allah is watching me 24 hours. Allah is watching me Allah is hearing what I'm saying Allah knows what is in my heart therefore I am ashamed to the word is using. He's not saying I'm afraid. He's saying our shame How can I commit a sin when I know Allah is watching me.

00:12:06--> 00:12:07

Third thing

00:12:08--> 00:12:13

he said that I know that nobody else is going to come and do good deeds for me on my behalf.

00:12:15--> 00:12:33

No one will pray for me, nobody will pray for Allah for me, nobody will give Zakat for me you know, my deeds I have to do. So, is it that I concentrate on I try to do as much as I can, because no one else is going to do it for me. And he says the last thing I have disconnect with this world is because I know one day I have to leave this world

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

one day I have to leave this world. So what is the point in being connected with something that you are willing to discard anyway.

00:12:42--> 00:12:47

So therefore, I focus on preparing for that day when I have to leave this world.

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

We are in this hotel, we know that we will leave here

00:12:52--> 00:13:00

end of the day end of the course Thursday. So we leave here either Friday morning or before that whichever so after after Friday morning

00:13:01--> 00:13:05

are concerned what happens is with this with this chair, we hear that it will be who cares.

00:13:09--> 00:13:22

And this dunya is less than that. Why? Because with this hotel, we can say that I will leave you a Friday morning. But can I say that I will leave this world on Friday morning. I do not know where we live the world before Friday, Monday.

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

Maybe I live the world now.

00:13:28--> 00:13:32

So how am I connected? How and why am I connected to this world?

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

That is where the issue of priorities comes.

00:13:38--> 00:13:47

The issue of pride is comes you want to sit and watch television to dogleg in the money you miss pageants, you come to Islamic boards, you're learning about the importance of connecting with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

and you're connecting with a television

00:13:51--> 00:13:53

Pasha, that's very good, very sensible, very intelligent.

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

You get what I'm saying.

00:13:58--> 00:14:01

And that's the only reason to sleep early. You wake up

00:14:03--> 00:14:14

but you don't sleep early. Allah subhanaw taala has blessed you that your team is in work. So, you take this blessing away and you bring a TV from somewhere else which works. So when you follow Chetan Allah

00:14:16--> 00:14:32

so naturally Chetan is successful you sit and watch television for maybe that television program you watched was something to do with a syrup or an alcohol maybe there was sitting and watching that for till two o'clock in the night of zero for an Mashallah and listening to the caliber of Allah subhanaw taala we don't we don't know a lot, let's have the best.

00:14:33--> 00:14:40

But if that is not what we were watching, a lot of is what you are watching. But that just one

00:14:41--> 00:14:44

syllable further also would have been gone you unless somebody came in just

00:14:46--> 00:14:49

because somebody came and just you woke you up. Therefore you prayed for the other way.

00:14:52--> 00:14:56

So when is this going to change? When is this going to change?

00:15:01--> 00:15:06

We have to grow up. We have to grow up we cannot live your whole life like little kids.

00:15:09--> 00:15:16

The children of the Zuma what they call children at the age of 15, at the age of 16, they were commanding armies

00:15:17--> 00:15:21

and they were not going away because they were like this who had to woken up with another budget?

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

What does this

00:15:26--> 00:15:32

have to take ownership for ourselves you can't live lives like like little chickens.

00:15:36--> 00:15:45

Sam is to love Allah subhanho wa Taala and be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala at the level where

00:15:46--> 00:15:55

we feel Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching me and doing everything as if Allah subhanaw taala is watching me not as if Allah knows I'm doing it as if I am seeing Allah

00:15:56--> 00:16:02

know as if in Allah is watching that is dominant as the vision as if I'm seeing Allah

00:16:06--> 00:16:11

and this was the way as I told you that the Sahaba and they express everything in terms of salah

00:16:15--> 00:16:17

and that is why the mama Salah was the mama.

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

So SL is to develop this quality in ourselves

00:16:28--> 00:16:37

and how do we develop ourselves by consciously ensuring that we obey Allah subhanaw taala in every aspect of our lives,

00:16:38--> 00:16:42

there is no exam without obedience of Allah subhana wa let's be very clear in this.

00:16:44--> 00:16:50

Sometimes when people are misguided and they think oh, but you know, I have reached such a level that the Valley of Allah that I don't have to buy anymore.

00:16:54--> 00:17:00

There is a story Ilana, how far it is true, but maybe it is true is a story that

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

Malala was sleeping and he saw a dream. And in this dream, he saw a very big throne. And on this throne, he saw a brilliant light.

00:17:12--> 00:17:15

And he heard a voice and the voice said yeah,

00:17:16--> 00:17:23

you do not have to pray anymore. You have raised such a stage with me. That Salah is no longer necessary for you.

00:17:25--> 00:17:25

So

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

are you

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

and the light vanished.

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

The light went out.

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

Shannon is trying to fool

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

you know you understand what's Uzu

00:17:46--> 00:17:51

so he says How can Salah not be forgotten me when Salah was verbonden Avi

00:17:53--> 00:18:05

Rasool Allah Allah Allah so how can someone who who comes and claims to be a Muslim? How can a misaligns ever you know my level of Villa with Alex van Alton is so high that I don't have to pray anymore. Nonsense.

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

Nonsense. That is the

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

simple

00:18:12--> 00:18:15

obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala is what takes us close to Allah Subhana.

00:18:19--> 00:18:25

Allah does it first Joel, walk 30 Allah says go in such that and come close to me.

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

I don't want to go into a lot of detail.

00:18:31--> 00:18:41

For the reminder, we tried to keep it short, detailed, we'll see inshallah today. Tonight the talk is on merit of Allah subhanaw taala. So we'll go into some detail there. But the point i'm saying is that

00:18:42--> 00:18:46

what is it says that says that is the ultimate symbol of obedience.

00:18:48--> 00:18:51

Ultimate symbol obedience, the iconic symbol of obedience.

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

And in Zelda, Allah says come close.

00:18:58--> 00:19:03

So the way of getting close to Allah subhanaw taala is to become completely and totally obedient to Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

and how do you become obedient to Allah?

00:19:08--> 00:19:13

By following the Sunnah of his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:19:15--> 00:19:43

So ask Allah Subhana Allah, to make it easy for us, and possible for us to be obedient to Him in every aspect of our lives. ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us the sweetness of obeying Him, not obeying him out of some compulsion, but obeying Him because it is so sweet and so beautiful to obey Him. And that is where Assamese to say about this Allah for Allah.

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

He is to say give us the happiness. Through this lie I will help

00:19:52--> 00:20:00

us relief distressing is not because you put your head on the ground and static electricity with this

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

We will have all these funny theories

00:20:04--> 00:20:12

series that people have and this is there is a big problem with this because if a person is praying is praying in order to discharge static electricity then it is not a bad thing he's doing

00:20:14--> 00:20:40

he was very careful with all these great theories we float around you know the the health benefits of fasting so now the people who don't understand the you know, he's fasting because he will lose some weight is fasting because he's giving you health benefits, then he's not inhibited anymore because you're not fasting to please Allah faster for the whole Armada and it's not one of the fastest in your account as a bother because you're not doing it whether you're fasting for the sake of dieting

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

to ruin somebody's

00:20:43--> 00:20:48

day whether you know it is very necessary the Bible comes with it without the without the Nia there's no bother

00:20:50--> 00:21:04

going through the motions of this. People say no the the the benefits right like yeah like you guys you sit in this position, this happens and these bends and these presses and in that position, something else happens and you put the head on the ground and this is what happens and so on the how Allah Allah Allah is this for your break.

00:21:06--> 00:21:10

Without the near there is no bad that you can do all the motions in the world makes no difference without the knee as

00:21:12--> 00:21:29

soon as you very clear that we are doing the ibaadat Allah subhanaw taala you're not discharging study electricity or whatever it is. So be very clear about it. We are doing the Battletoads Renata, why are you fasting because it is the hook of Allah subhanaw taala to please Allah subhanaw taala to get close to Allah subhanho wa Taala to develop taqwa in our lives,

00:21:30--> 00:21:34

is rather personal fasting for what could the valley coo coo coo coo, coo coo

00:21:37--> 00:21:40

coo coo. So that you develop taqwa?

00:21:42--> 00:21:48

Not so that you lose weight not so that you become you become better your digestion becomes better no is Allah saying that? No.

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

All that may happen may not happen.

00:21:54--> 00:22:30

The fasting in order to develop taqwa and that's why the focus of the Nia of what we are doing was very clear. So we ask Allah to make it easy for us, to be obedient to Him and to conscious the do our a bear that in such a way that we are conscious of the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala in our lives, and that we develop the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala inside to such an extent that we are always and always very careful with what we say and do that we never disobey and we never displeased. Allah Jalla wa was Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Karim, Allah Allah. He was happy at me
