Was that catered for in

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

the Quran?

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

Pharaoh meaning well now for now, Gene now in

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


00:00:23 --> 00:00:47

somebody's gonna Huntelaar here but I get this bill lemon hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah along I live in the main fauna when found Habima alum Tana was an 11 year hora. I mean, we ask Allah azza wa jal teachers would benefit us benefits from our tutorials and increase us in knowledge. I mean, you probably mean, my dear beloved the specter brothers and sisters, ask Allah azza wa jal to make me a new from the people who listen and apply.

00:00:49 --> 00:01:00

We only we all know that Allah subhanaw taala is the only one who knows the future. He is the only one who knows the Unseen

00:01:02 --> 00:01:03


00:01:04 --> 00:01:12

on a daily basis, we sometimes make or need to make decisions about matters in our life.

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:19 --> 00:01:20

in order to find out

00:01:23 --> 00:01:35

the hail in any manner that we are about to decide. He prescribed something called Salat al LST Farah de l istikhara.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:42

Today in sha Allah to Allah, we will be discussing

00:01:44 --> 00:01:47

everything that has to do with slotless the Hara.

00:01:48 --> 00:01:49


00:01:50 --> 00:01:54

we have to know that when we pray istikhara

00:01:56 --> 00:02:03

we have taken the matter from our hands and entrusted Allah with that matter.

00:02:05 --> 00:02:21

We have taken the matter from our own hands and entrusted Allah azza wa jal in that matter, we submitted to Allah and Allah subhana wa Taala will give us the Tofik to what is best for us. This is extremely important.

00:02:22 --> 00:02:29

So anything that happens after the istikhara is what Allah azza wa jal will do for us.

00:02:31 --> 00:02:33

There's a very important

00:02:36 --> 00:02:47

point about istikhara is that we have to free our mind from all thoughts and inclinations before performing serratus Takara.

00:02:49 --> 00:03:10

It's not like I made up my mind, I want to marry this person or I want to move to that state to that land. And then I pray Sahara and all my inclination is toward that purpose, no, free your mind of what you really want. And put your trust in Allah subhana wa Taala and perform solid istikhara. Now sometimes,

00:03:12 --> 00:04:01

when we pray the istikhara and things will open up and we feel good about that specific reason we prayed and it might not work out for example, I prayed as to how to buy this house specific house and I went through with it and everything was smooth. And then it turned out that the house has a leak that the house had a bad neighbor that means that you are being tested. There is a hail in that matter, but you do not see it. That does not mean that you made the wrong the Sahara that necessarily mean that you made the wrong istikhara.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:09

Now we will discuss how to perform Salat list Ihara.

00:04:11 --> 00:04:54

The hadith about serratus the hara Salah Salem Salam started the Hadith by saying either a hammer Hadoken if some if one of you have decided about a matter, this is a very major misconception about istikhara is the Hara is not a choice between two things. Should I marry this person or that person? Should I buy this house or that house? Should I take this job or that job? No. It's the Hara. It does not tell you what to do. It tells you if what you decided is good or not. So you have one matter you decided I want to marry that person. And then you praise the Hora for that person, not whether to marry a person a or Person B.

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

Okay, this is a misconception. People think that the Sahara is rich

00:05:00 --> 00:05:34

works between two things, I made up my mind, I want to I want to move to that state. And then I will take by all the means I pray by istikhara and I take by the means and then I would see either things will start falling into place and that's a sign that is the right decision or things will start getting complicated you will find many obstacles towards that goal. And that is an indication that this thing is is not for you how to praise the hara to work as Toorak as other than the forward

00:05:35 --> 00:06:28

anytime of the day you pray these two records, it's preferable to do them at night at the last part of the night when Allah subhanaw taala is asking what do you want, but anytime of the day is is okay, you pray to rock as there are no specific sewers to be recited. And the dua of istikhara can be made either before the Tasleem before you make Salam or after you make the salam. If you do not know it by heart, you can read it from the phone or from any booklet that you have and if you know it by heart hamdulillah now listen to how beautiful is that they have istikhara yeah Allah I asked for goodness for goodness from your knowledge and I seek strength from your power and I ask you for

00:06:28 --> 00:06:39

your greatest blessings you are able to do anything and I cannot you know everything and I don't and you know the unseen

00:06:40 --> 00:06:45

Look at how beautiful is this introduction? Now I start asking ya Allah

00:06:46 --> 00:06:51

if in your knowledge this decision and I mentioned my

00:06:53 --> 00:06:59

issue whatever I want if this woman that I want to be married to

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

If this matter is good for my life in this dunya and in the acciara then yeah, Allah make it easy for me and add blessings to it for me. And yeah Allah if in your knowledge that this matter is not good for my dunya and for my akhira Yeah, Allah turn it away from me and turn me away from it. And make me content with whatever Yeah, Allah have decreed. Allahu Akbar, such a beautiful, amazing that you have taken all

00:07:37 --> 00:08:25

the decision making from your power from your ability and you have entrusted Allah azza wa jal with that matter. And you have entrusted the one who knows the Unseen, Allah knows if that house that car, that job that wife that husband is good for you, Allah subhana wa Taala will facilitate it for you. Now, there are certain things that we should know about istikhara do not make istikhara about haram matter. I cannot make istikhara Should I drink alcohol or not? There is no Sahara and that is haram matter. I cannot make st Hara also about food. Should I go to Hajj or not? Should I pray fast Ramadan or not? There's no as the Farah about foreign matters.

00:08:27 --> 00:09:08

And sometimes someone is in a state that they cannot pray that's the hara, especially our sisters, then they can only make the dua of the istikhara they can just make the dough out by itself and that should be sufficient. So the correct view is that when Allah makes something easy for you, after having decreed it and accepted your DUA, this is a sign that the matter is, is good and go ahead with it. And the existence of obstacles and difficulties is an indication that Allah is pushing you away from from that matter.

00:09:09 --> 00:09:11

Is it permissible to repeat

00:09:12 --> 00:09:18

more than once? Absolutely, you can make the istikhara more than once.

00:09:21 --> 00:09:27

Now, there are some misconceptions about slotless jihad. Number one, many people expect a dream

00:09:28 --> 00:10:00

that after they praised the hunter, they are expecting to see a dream should they go forward or not? This does None. None of it as mentioned in the Sunnah. And like we said before, you will feel things are going good or you feel like things are getting complicated and complicated. Either this or that. Another misconception is that people think that a sinful person cannot pray istikhara and they should ask a righteous person to pray istikhara for them. This is

00:10:00 --> 00:10:30

Not true. No one can prays to God on behalf of another person. We could make dua for that person. Yeah Allah if my son, that job is good for him, yeah, Allah make it easy for him. But I cannot pray it's too hard on behalf of another person. And also, many people think that this data is only for big matters. No. istikhara is for big matters and small matters and medium matters and all kinds of matters. Anytime you are intending to do something.

00:10:32 --> 00:11:21

Make wudu pray to Rakowski Hara, make the dua after and ask Allah azza wa jal if that matter is good for you or not Subhanallah this the Hara is a divine GPS. It's your divine GPS, it guides you to what is best for you. And when you pray, istikhara and you took by all the means, then you submit to Allah azza wa jal, if these things after that, it turned out that that husband was not a great husband, you did your best, that wife was not a good wife. After you find out after you move together, you did your best and you followed every single step that means that marriage, that Job was a test for you and your patients will be extremely rewarding. So at the end of the day, it's

00:11:21 --> 00:11:28

always fair. It's always fair. My brothers and sisters, let's take st Hara

00:11:30 --> 00:12:07

very serious, and make it a practice before we make any decisions in our life. You are consulting you are asking the old knowing the old wise, the old loving, the old caring the one who knows the Unseen, about that matter. So there's no one better than Allah azza wa jal to ask, may Allah subhanaw taala make us from the people who always listen and apply May Allah make our last deeds our best deeds and our last words La Ilaha illa Allah Subhana Allah Morbihan digna Shalonda La Land the stuff Heruka when I told really I love you all for the sake of Allah

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


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

feel flooded he got how

00:12:19 --> 00:12:21

minoli to

00:12:22 --> 00:12:24
