Hello bill AlLahi wa salatu salam, ala Shafi lambay, mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't even come here and kathira from Nevada, my brothers and sisters, I know my face is partially in the darkness but doesn't matter you know what I look like, I just want to share with you
the beautiful view from where I am, and
so that we can together share the
on and share and we can appreciate the glory and beauty and magnificence almost ran out
lesson on the scale tarbiyah
I was listening to
before I was in our lesson, the point I want to make for you is the importance of understanding
the position of the near the position of the intention. We have been over this before but Allah said in as in a ziggurat and for moving a
lot around Dallas It was a cube in zerah tanto movie Allah della give us Hong Kong and he said, Remember, remind each other remember,
this reminding and remembering is beneficial for the moment. So without any apology, I repeat what I have said before
for my benefit and your benefit, that let us continuously focus on the near on the reason we do things.
One of the biggest
curtains, one of the biggest hijjah one of the biggest things which blinds us, very paradoxically, but very understandably, is knowledge itself is Elm itself.
Shaytan is the biggest within quartz. I don't like to say the word alien because we use the word in a very positive sense. 100 and we should, but in terms of knowing
it's perhaps quite,
quite legitimate to say that the knowledge of a police is unequaled in human terms, there is really no human being who knows as much as a police knew, yet he disobeyed. And yet he managed to land himself in the Johanna. So what is it that knowledge does? One of the games that Emily's plays the shaitan plays that the devil plays with us is in two parts. One is he will directly try to tempt us in to committing haram into doing that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has clearly prohibited whether it's in our earnings, whether it's a whether it's in our dealings, whether it's in what we eat and drink in any way,
shape, shotgun tries to persuade us and tries to invigorate us and tries to deceive us into disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala direct disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala despite having the knowledge, that to do so is haram to do so can amount to Cofer because knowing that Allah has prohibited something, deliberately if I still do it, then I'm denying the hokum and I'm denying the order of Allah subhanaw taala which is one of the ways or one of the definition of cover. So shatta will try this then what he does is that where he cannot make you commit a sin
whatever be the magnitude of the sin many cannot make you commit one of the one of the major sins and so on so forth.
What he does is one of two things one is he persuades to do persuades you to do something, which is small, within course, small, severe, and he tries to convince you and say, Oh, it's okay. It's a small thing, right? Now imagine, remember, think about this. How many times have you heard this kind of a statement from somebody? Oh, yeah, it's okay. It's a small thing. Now remember, the one of the reasons for Sue or hotma one of the reasons for a bad ending May Allah protect us from
so on. hajima And may Allah subhanaw taala give us a Mahatma.
May Allah protect us from a bad ending and give us a good ending the
One of the major reasons is israa. Alan Massey is to insist on and is to Takara israa and Takara is to insist on and to repeat since, right? And that's why they say
La Kabira malice diffa wala Saavedra Melissa, this is there is no major sin along with Mr. far along with repentance Meaning, if you repent, the same goes away, the sin is forgiven by Allah subhanaw taala and last
mile is raw and there is nothing small when you insist on it, when you insist on committing it. So, the small thing if it is committed deliberately and if it is committed repeatedly, then acquires the level of a major sin and a major sin if it is done, continuously, repeatedly, deliberately, then it acquires the level of Cofer, which is completely you know, may Allah protect us some Cofer is to deny Allah Subhana, Allah subhanaw taala. Either then you are you are no longer in Islam. Now, denying Allah subhanaw taala is, can be in many ways, one of the ways of course, is to deny to worship him, but the meaning of worship is obedience, so to deny, to obey to deny, Allah subhanaw
taala is right, that he should be obeyed. This is like denying his right that he should be worshipped. And if you do if you are doing that, then obviously you have removed yourself from the protection and the circle of Islam. So therefore, it is extremely, extremely important for us to focus on our hearts This is what the whole does with the scale that we are thinking about all about to our and to continuously ask yourself this question and say, why am I doing what I'm doing? Not what just what I'm doing. Why.
As I said, this is the the travel shot and one is he makes you or tries to make you commit a commit a major sin, if you can't do that, he will get you He will take away or help you or persuade you to lose the
to lose the consciousness of committing small sins. So we buy by saying or just one thing, it doesn't matter, right? The key thing to remember is that everything matters because first of all those words that I said what was kind of our entire era will tell us
that he will show us every single thing we did good even if it is to the small like an atom and everything we did which is bad, which is like an atom so there was a question of saying it is small, everything is recorded everything is will be shown to us, may Allah protect us. Then second thing is if you say small or big, basically what is the definition of sin? What is a sin a sin is the disobedience of Allah. And Allah Akbar, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the biggest. So how can the disobedience of Allah Akbar be as well be Sufi? How is it possible? How is it possible that we disobey the one who is the greatest who we acknowledge and accept as the greatest? And yet we say
that to disobey Him is okay, it is only a small thing. So it means that there is some major, you know, at best confusion and at worst, evil in our hearts. So this is a second thing shut down does one make you commit major sins? If you can't do that, then he will make you commit small things. Apparently small Now I'm using the word major and small because from my
perspective, which is carbuyer and Zion, the biggest bigger sins and the smaller ones, and they're just called Big and small not because
not so that you can feel free to do the small things, but because in fake in jurisprudence, there are punishments associated with since and obviously,
you cannot get the same punishment for everything. So they have the the jurists have
separated things in terms of the punishments that they
that they attract. The third thing which
shaitan does is he tries to me now he can make you do a major sin and he can make you do a smarter thing or medicine then what does he do? He tries to make you do the good deeds that you want to do in a way that you get less reward for it right in a way that it gets you the debts you less reward for it. So for example, to leave Sarah deliberately is covered. So that's the, the most major thing that you can do, which is to go
What if somebody deliberately leaves Salah knowingly wanting Li with this understanding that Salah if he's saying that Salah is not important for me I don't have to pray I need not pray. Prayer is not for me if he's saying all of this kind of stuff then of course the person has left Islam but if it's if somebody deliberately leaves alight some very very major sin amounting to over Allah Allah maybe it is Cofer itself i'm i'm not saying this because I don't know I'm saying this because it will give it enough you know as much room as possible for excuse but the point being that the Sahaba were very clear on this the Sahaba did not ever deny that to leave Salah isco for Russia Salim said
I had a lady when i when i was Salah, for one out of the half of Guevara he said the differentiator the dividing line between them and as meaning non Muslims and Muslim is Allah and the one who leaves Salah has left Islam has committed over so major South shaitan will try to make you and me leave Salah just don't pray now you can't do that he knows he can't do that. So what does he do now? He tries to
persuade us to pray in a way where the reward is reduced. For example, I know if I go to pray in the masjid I will get 27 times the reward So as I was saying no it's too cold It's too dark it is too hot. There is too much of rain that this this what not doesn't matter prior to that he wants to not pray the prayer at home. So now what has happened you prayed but instead of getting 27 times the reward you got only one type of reward
right? So this is what he does to try to
reduce the reward of the D then final thing which he does and this is all the same saying in terms of the scale tarbiyah interestingly enough, it's very important for us to focus on the heart and say why am I doing something now and I'll come to that in a second. So now what does he do? He uses your knowledge whatever you know of Islam and that's why it's very important to number one to learn and also to learn from in the right way which is before you plant the seed the ground must be prepared. So before you learn the deen you must have the skill of your knifes without cleaning and purifying the heart if you try to learn the deen it will you will mislead yourself and you will mislead
others. So what does he do what he does what he does is he uses whatever knowledge you have to deceive you into leaving things of the highest reward right
for example, I tell you what happened with me once I was traveling from India to South Africa and the flight leaves Hyderabad at about 10 o'clock in the night so obviously before I boarded the flight I finished by Asia and and all that
whatever I needed to read and so forth and then in Dubai there was a wait between the my arrival and connecting to the flight to South Africa there was a weight of I think three or four hours so I thought my mind was okay so I'm going to sleep go to the lounge and sleep get some a couple of hours of sleep in the lounge
so when I reached the why I went to the knotch I went to the place where they have the silent place where they have the
couches and so on
now as I sat there I had a thought that I should pray
instantly or absolutely resolved in a way funny The moment I had this thought that I should create the hudgell instance art was
I am traveling
even by fund Salah I will pray haha
so instead of forgot I will bring
that it is only enough
I am tired I've got another eight hours of flying time to do I've got this time now to three hours to sleep. Let me sleep Why should I pay taxes right instantly. So what is happening here, here whatever little knowledge I have which is Daniel does not feel it is not for
Hustle is allowed so therefore even fun Salah is reduced in duration.
So this is knowledge this is this is actual Islamic
knowledge right it's
the issues of faith concerning Salah during travel. Tourism
This is not wrong, this is not her hours. This is actually but his knowledge is being used to persuade me not to pretend
100 100 100 then I got another thought. And that thought was that the draw of the
the person who was traveling his VA is accepted by NASA. And which better time and place to make draa than the 100 than to live in time.
So I said 100
here was this Mufti, giving me this fatwa. To say that I don't have to pray, because it is nothing. Don't be an extremist, don't pray, there is no need to pray and rest.
And 100 I got a reply to this movie. To say that yes, we are not saying that is fun. It is nothing. But here is an opportunity to pray the huddle
in suffer while traveling, because the door of the Mousavi, the door of the traveler, is accepted, especially accepted bonus.
So I think the last winter I went in medicine, I pray that my point I'm saying here is that this is the an example to show why it is important to ask yourself in the heart, when you are talking about and looking and considering obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. The important thing is to ask yourself in your heart and say,
whatever delille I'm using, effectively, what am I doing? Am I doing less of or more of? If it is available via tele, am I doing less rather? Or moreover?
Am I with my action? Am I demonstrating shock? Or am I demonstrating bizagi? Am I demonstrating a great desire and a great,
you know, passion for the worship of Allah subhanaw taala? Or am I demonstrating laziness and demonstrating that, you know, this is, as I say in Farsi by the lira hosta with a with a reluctant heart with something which is okay, this is a burden has to be discharged. What am I demonstrating? By my action? That's the question that I need to ask myself. And this is a question that I should ask myself and say, what is it that I am demonstrating by my actions? legally, you may have grounds for it.
when you are speaking about it, what I would illustrate, let me give you another example. Standard argument in most massages, in most places in the world, at least I have come across this in practically everywhere, including in our massages, and we periodically have this issue. Of course my if I'm there, usually they don't. The people have learned not to argue with me on this. But they somebody will usually bring it up. And that is time for certification.
And they say well, you know, why don't we pray later
people don't say the word but also I can get a little more duties. Because what else is there at that time? So play pray later, then they usually say no, but you see there is time? And why should we be extreme in this? and so on. So now, my question is very simple. First, first one millimeter scale.
With respect to the loss of annual data. Do you want to be counted among those who are minimalist in terms of videos? Or do you want to mute with Do you want yourself to be counted on those who exceeded in trying to please Allah?
Who did more? Or who did the least that they could do? One leg inside the law or leap into the law with both feet? Which one?
Again, please understand this. I'm not saying that. If you pray later in the times is haram No.
After there is a time, if the time is two hours, whether you pray five minutes after the time starts, or you pray five minutes before the time ends. You have prayed within the time
is yours, of course as well.
Of course it is well. We're not talking about validity here.
We're not talking about validity here. We are talking about doing more because we love Allah subhanho telegenic
Think about this, you get married.
Right? You guys done. You're fulfilling the rights of your wife, your husband.
And if you are the man and you are giving your wife her naphtha, you know what she's supposed to what you're supposed to give her as spending money, you are giving her enough food and clothes and whatnot to provide a decent home. But think about is that throughout your life, you never praise her
for anything, cooking take care of the house, what not take care of yourself. Never, you know appraisal, you never gave her a bouquet of flowers. You never gave her a special gift.
Right? You never did any of that. But you completed a video as far as your within your duties are concerned. You did all that. But anything extra know?
What kind of what kind of marriage? Do you think that will be compared to another person
who fulfills the duties. But
he makes it a point always to appreciate what she does always to be nice to her always to give her some gift or the other no reason not because it's a birthday it is.
Just like that I just thought of you here as a gift. doesn't have to be anything major and expensive. Some small thing, but just to show that I am thinking of you.
Which is a better marriage, which is likely to be metameric.
dollar level I'm not giving Allah's example in this. But I'm asking ask yourself this question that you weigh by your actions. I would don't study that you love Allah or I would demonstrating that okay, since Allah is their sins and their sins, I have decided to accept this and awareness monitor, I will do what is minimally required.
wanted us? Did you have to stand all night?
insula? What was his answer and say that I just ran out of our concern. And other people also asked him, this is yes, what are you strangles you exert so much
your your feet get swollen, your bless feet get swollen,
because of standing for for so long and so on. You cry so much before
you weep and weep and weep
and Alas, forgiven all your sins. I love the report and to say this the first night of England it is the second night of swords and Fatah.
Allah said we have forgiven you mad about
your sin whatever it is before what is after everything we have forgiven.
Why do you do that? What was his answer? He said Should I not be an absent Shakira? Should I not be a slave who is grateful?
Even more because Allah did all this for me.
So now we have we have this usual standard out do it in in most massages, delaying salah
and then of course everybody's you know who wants to delay they will bring this proof and that proof
My question is very simple. My question is, Allah said for Lulu Busan Li Allah one Salatu himself Allah said that woe to those who pray
and heal but to delay their Salah
Yeah, that's a word to those who give the Salah know
those who pray Meaning what? Meaning the Salah with this person braid was within the time frame of the salado person did not, don't go out of that time frame. Because if you went out to the time for me, Mr. Shah, he didn't pray at all. His prayer is not valid.
So when is the person I'm saying for evil mousseline? Amboseli means what means those who pray so Allah saying war to those who pray or to delay this
Why does anyone delay
for our convenience, whether it is to sleep or whether it is because I have a meeting whether it is because I want to watch football or basketball or whatever it is, whether it is because I'm reading something, eating something, whatever the reason
I delay myself
What is the lesson for
one second one
who was the one who
prescribed for us and gave us the whole load of time
with regard to sub Saharan weather begins at this time, and at this time, the time for Salah begins at this time. And the district who taught us this was always a reason. We know how it happened. You will so
Lamb came to Isa Salah. And the very least
one time you prayed with resources, Salam at the beginning of the Diamond Sutra, the time came in. And he did that for all the fives.
He prayed at the beginning of the time. And then he prayed at the end of the time, just before the
not after, just before there.
So this time period defines the period of Salah of that type of that Salah, so certain father, maybe two hours, one an hour for what it was that his daughter is born and so on.
Right, so as soon as a salon taught us, what is the beginning times of salah and when does it end? But what did he say about what is of the what is the best? Go look at yourself if you if you don't believe me? What did he say? He said it is best to pray at the beginning of the time, as soon as the right time comes in. Why? Because it demonstrates shock. Then me how many people when the latest version of iPhone is released?
What do people love iPhones? What do they do?
They say, Well, you know, Apple wants to sell the phone.
I don't have to fight for it. I will order it. When it comes comes
to this, you know, what do they do? They go and camp outside on the pavement outside the Apple store the previous night.
So as soon as the store opens, they are the first person into the store and they want to buy the first phone. Why is there a price? Is there do they get a discount for that, as a matter of fact, they actually pay more because all these things after a time the price drops.
So from a price perspective, you would say that the one who tries to buy the first is a fool because he's spending more money.
You wait for some time. You wait for three months, six months, you get the phone for much less.
But no, you will never convince the one who loves notice the word will never convince the one who loves Apple
that he or she should wait to get it.
You will never convince anyone who loves who truly loves anything
being with or getting nothing.
So we want to convince the one who loves him
that he should delay going into the presence of a man.
Again, I'm not I'm not saying you know,
I'm not saying it.
I'm not pronouncing a fatwa against the one who didn't know.
If by must just praise the Salah to further lead What will I do? I will go and pray it. I will go and pray behind that email late Why? Because of the summer of 27 times of praying in the magic but I will register my protests. So that before Allah subhanaw taala
it will be said that this man protested against the delay.
But he prayed to the masjid I will not say no I will pray at home early No.
But I will try to persuade the budget to pray early so that everybody benefits.
shock. The one who loves wants it earliest. He wants to be the first he wants to be in there when nobody else is there.
So my question to you is not what is permissible and not permissible, what is not permissible. We are not even talking about that because it is not the shine of the moment to rule something which is
you're talking about in the permissible which is the best
which demonstrates Shulk which demonstrates passion which demonstrates love which demonstrates his which demonstrates hope
because on the devil on the Day of Judgment I want to say to Allah Subhana Allah I love you.
Europe I love you. Eva says what is the proof your lies to run to the budget to pray early.
I used to come to the masjid to pray early.
I want to show this evidence.
So ask yourself
do you want this evidence in your favor?
Or do you want this all usual argument? No, but you know
This is also jazz that is also just
up to you.
The purpose of these lectures on the scale the scale with RBI is not to promote mill minimalist thinking. These are not also lectures on also luck. You are not doing any for
What we are saying here is, knowing what is right. How can I make it better?
How can I improve? How can I get maximum pressure?
Just as I do with everything else in life? We don't go and buy a car and say as long as it has four wheels and an engine, I'm fine. No, no, no, no. I want the best car that I can afford to buy.
When I believe my house, do I say well, no agenda, the agenda the chair? No, no, no, no, Jared.
I want the best. I want the best decoration. I want the best. Whatever I can afford, within the purview of my budget. I want the best.
If I want to get married, what do you say? Well, as long as it's a female No, no, no, no. As long as it's a man know
about all kinds of criteria.
What about Allah?
What about pleasing Allah?
You want military's thinking the Lord I'm pray.
In LA when
I run sisters, the whole point of the spirit is to clean the heart. And if you clean the heart, the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala must reflect in it not love for yourself. Not love for your time, not love for your ease, not love for your laziness. Not for Allah subhanho wa Taala ask, what did Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam do?
Did he did a salon play prayer the last moment? Or did he pray as soon as the time for father came in?
And not any one particular time this happened? No, no. What was his normal practice?
One particular time something may have happened for a number of reasons. We're not talking about everything. What was his normal practice? What did the Sahaba do? What was the normal practice? What about the Hadees Mr. salaberry said pray at the earliest time this is of the best
and give you the example of prayers as an example but apply this for everything else. Like our minimum minimum requirement 2.5%.
But how much do you actually give in South Africa?
I got to
repay that. But you also get more because I want my money to be transferred to where I'm going. I want my rap to be pleased restaurant as an upset charity calls the anger of Allah I want to call the anger of Allah with regard to me.
So I will give more not 2.5% Harrogate 10 2050, whatever.
There is a friend of mine who's a honey
Israeli. And they give 10% of their not savings 10% of their earnings month on the month.
Or they got this on savings. It's not on earnings. But ohana is negative 10% of their
He says, When I get my salary, I go first to the
10% I put it in the box.
And then I take 90% home.
He said never take that $100 home $10 goes into the box in the jamatkhana and I take only $9.
Why? Because he wants to please. He wants his name to be among those who
Where do I want my end to be? Where do you want your name to be?
Think about that.
May Allah bless you and have you well as rantala country among those who loved it.
May your love for Allah subhanho wa Taala be the witness for you on the day of judgment and be the reason and means of your forgiveness, create evidence in favor of yourself.
Or Savannah will carry by law he was a member of
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
