Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was a big Marine,

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

I ask Allah to reward each and every one of you for every moment that you stand

00:00:20--> 00:00:46

and every verse that you try to comprehend and reflect on, and even every pinch of pain that you may feel after a year, perhaps of not standing and getting the rest of the joints and maybe reaching for the Bengay or the icy hot afterthought Oh, yeah, I say that half joking, but this is all the rewardable This is all rewardable. You know, in the same way, by the way that I want to tell you it I'm afraid to tell you

00:00:48--> 00:01:22

that there are actually Muslims that in this second night of Ramadan, before the evening is over, they will be done with their third Cutsem they will be done with their third Fatima to push you. At the same time I want to tell you that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam also said Whoever prays with the Imam until the Imam exits will get the reward of praying the whole night anyway. So power through in sha Allah the first few nights are always a bit tricky for some of us, get through them in sha Allah until you streamline for the rest of the month. As for tonight's reminder

00:01:24--> 00:01:33

Bismillah so we said yesterday that we are in sha Allah embarking on a month of being cured by the Quran

00:01:34--> 00:02:20

and the importance of humbling yourself approaching the Quran seeking that cure. And I told you also that scholars like a Neville we Rahim Allah told you, you can look at the meanings if you don't understand the meaning. So you may reflect because the cure is through reflecting on his words, there is no cure for the hearts like it. What I want to do now for the rest of the month, to be honest, and I hesitated much. But I want to dedicate the reminders that I will be giving a few nights a week in sha Allah to a particular disease that the Quran cures. And it's going to be a heavy topic and I want to apologize in advance. And maybe I'm being a little bit selfish here

00:02:20--> 00:02:35

because I wanted to dedicate this Ramadan to that theme for my own personal well being. But I will also give a final disclaimer that in sha Allah I'll try my best as heavy as the topic is to end it on a positive note each night in sha Allah.

00:02:36--> 00:03:13

And that is the topic of NIFA the disease of NIFA loosely translated as hypocrisy. It is actually so important that it is the very first disease mentioned in the Quran at the very beginning the 10th verse of Surah Al Baqarah. Allah speaks about the people that have an effect that have this quote, unquote hypocrisy ficolo being modeled in their hearts is such a disease for that home Allah humara Allah and Allah increase them in that disease because they were negligent regarding their neufeldt they let it dwell inside them carelessly.

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

And so

00:03:16--> 00:04:02

we want to talk about it the first thing we'll dedicate tonight just to introducing it as a concept to know what the fat is all about. Because hypocrisy could be a little bit like Miss telling. It's not clear because hypocrisy when we hear hypocrisy, we think someone is consciously trying to deceive someone having two phases, basically hypocrites, right? But the Quran tells you it's not actually like that. The Quran tells you that hypocrisy isn't always conscious. Hypocrisy is actually a disease in the hearts that Allah Himself causes the hearts to be infected with, when they are negligent of their sins. He said Subhana who without and sort of the tilba and the 77 or 78th Verse

00:04:02--> 00:04:35

For Acaba, how many Fabcon feel Adobe him Eli yo me yell Kona who Bhima Allah for Allah mela I do that Allah cause their hearts to be plagued, plagued with hypocrisy, until the very day they meet him. May Allah protect us, until the very day they meet him. Due to breaking their promises to Allah, the promise of submission, the promise of commitment, the promise of obedience and adherence to the path of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

hypocrisy is not just always conscious, many times it goes undetected. And what's extra scary about it is that the more hypocrisy enters the heart, the less detected it is by the heart. You know, that's why Omar Radi Allahu Allah and the great so happy when he was welcoming Ramadan. He used to say about it more haben Bimota here Hoonah

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

We'll move ahead in I mean, as Drew, welcome, welcome to the one that's going to cleanse us again from our sins. Because the Sahaba understood sins are not just some like tally, one bad D, two bad deeds, three bad deeds that just show up in an Excel sheet or something on the Day of Judgment. It's not like that at all. They actually have ramifications consequences here, and they just continue to send you in a very dangerous path, and you'll become less and less aware of the path that you're on that destructive path by virtue of them. It wasn't just Omar, you know, even Abby Malaika Rahima hula, one of the greats of the tambourine. He said, I got to meet 30 companions of the Prophet

00:05:42--> 00:06:26

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Kulu, whom you're half who NIFA Kala, and FC, every single one of them afraid that they have any faith in them, afraid that they're, they're hypocrites. And he says, not a single one of them ever said, or they're to say I have the Amen, the faith of Gibreel and mica II. What does he mean? They understood that to the degree that your image and your faith is imperfect, your hypocrisy exists. And for sure, all of our faith is imperfect. Therefore, there are the seeds or the weeds of the fact they're always going to be there. We got to always be worried about them trying to rip these weeds out. But no, they will keep regenerating. That is the idea.

00:06:27--> 00:06:36

And so long as the concern is there, then you're on the right track. Let me end there on a positive note, Abdulla, Hubner, Mr. Ruth, Radi Allahu Allah.

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

You know, he used to say that

00:06:41--> 00:07:17

the moon FF sees the sin as as like a fly that lands on his nose and he just does this with it. Whereas the believer, someone with healthy amounts of Eman sees their sin as a huge mountain that's about to collapse on top of him. Right? And that's you sometimes you wonder, like, why would the Sahaba so scared? Like they were promised Jenner so many of them were promised gender wasn't even just the 10. The 10 are just 10 that are promised in one single Hadith and one single statement. But why are you so scared if your promise Jana because they were still afraid maybe when he promised us Jana sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:07:18--> 00:07:30

It was like contingent. He what he meant to say was you if you stay like this will go to Jana. Maybe that's what he meant to say. He didn't mean you are going to gender no matter what you do after today.

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

Is that clear?

00:07:33--> 00:07:50

Of course, he didn't mean that sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He meant that Allah has revealed to me that you will never ruin your deeds after today and you will make it to gender but they weren't sure they couldn't be sure because among them were hypocrites, right? And they used to always wonder, Am I one of them? That is the idea.

00:07:51--> 00:07:52


00:07:53--> 00:08:32

I'll end on that note, Abdullah had been Miss Rudra the Allahu Anh, when people would come to him and say, as a freelance, he was of hypocrisy, right? But he also had the the equalizer with him on hand. They would say to him, I fear that I'm gonna fail. I'm a hypocrites. And so he used to say to them, Lo, Quinta moon, African lamp, Tasha Dalek, if you were actually a hypocrite, meaning a full blown hypocrite, like far down the path, you would not be afraid of that. So so long as the concern is there, you understand what hypocrisy is like, and the more it's there, the harder it is to even find it. So long as your concern.

00:08:33--> 00:09:04

You're not a full hypocrite. You're right there, there's there's hope. And so in sha Allah insha Allah azza wa jal, we're going to employ that concern for the rest of these reminders, speaking about them on many different levels. Leave Nilay to Allah for the coming nights. May Allah purify all of our hearts from hypocrisy, and purify our eyes from every haram glance and purify our good deeds from insincerity and purify our tongues from this honesty Allahumma Amin SallAllahu Sallam Baraka, Vienna Muhammad wa ala early he was laughing He had
