all praises due to Allah Almighty.

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

We praise Him we seek His help we seek his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our souls and our deeds.

00:00:53 --> 00:01:07

Whoever Allah guide, there is no one to misguide. And whoever he leads astray, there is no one to guide and either witness that there is no God worthy of worship Allah. And the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says lip service and messenger

We ask Allah azza wa jal to open our hearts to the Noble Quran and to grant us love of reading it and pondering and deliberating over it, and to make it an argument for us and not against us in sha Allah on the Day of Judgment. My dear

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

brothers and sisters,

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

we continue with a song that will insert

00:01:59 --> 00:02:01

just a few quick things to be said

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

about some of the verses that we discussed last time.

00:02:08 --> 00:02:09

When we spoke about

00:02:11 --> 00:02:13

the verse that mentioned the spring,

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

which is I IN in California,

00:02:18 --> 00:02:24

we said that one of the opinions and this opinion was advanced by Mr. Lubin Cathy's

00:02:26 --> 00:02:26

is that

00:02:28 --> 00:02:50

Carrefour is a spring, from which the ones who are really close to Allah subhanaw taala. And they are called the slave servants of Allah and diverse right? I have an issue that will be high but Allah, that their status is higher than the status of umbra, mentioned in the previous verse, right?

00:02:51 --> 00:02:54

What may also support that opinion,

00:02:56 --> 00:02:58

is the other verse which comes in does

00:02:59 --> 00:03:07

Allah azza wa jal give us life to get there in sha Allah, where Allah, Allah says that that was

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

what means that who knew?

00:03:13 --> 00:03:15

I shall I will be * no.

00:03:17 --> 00:03:20

It's a similar meaning. There he mentioned

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

the other spring which is Tasneem.

00:03:26 --> 00:03:28

He also mentioned that they are,

00:03:29 --> 00:03:50

again, abroad, if you go a few verses behind. He's speaking about algebra. And then he says, that what they are drinking from is a cup of wine that is mixed when was this knee, what means as a woman to sneeze, then again, he says, I in Aniela, will be having a goon, a spring from which

00:03:51 --> 00:03:57

those who are really close to Allah, Allah drink from there, he calls it Aina Yasha will be

00:03:59 --> 00:04:12

here it says I international will be helpful. But in most cases, he seems to be referring to another group which is of a higher status, who drink from the spring immediately without having gets mixed.

00:04:13 --> 00:04:21

Drinking from his pure and directly from the spring. For those who are higher in status. Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:04:22 --> 00:04:31

This is one, the other one, when we spoke about your food, right, those who are fulfilling their vows, and they fear and they

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

whose evil is widespread,

00:04:36 --> 00:04:38

who was simply wrong.

00:04:39 --> 00:04:45

And this is showing you that the the evil of your milk piano is so widespread. And

00:04:47 --> 00:04:57

so general, it applies to everything when he's talking about the little piano. When when you imagine the meanings that are coming from this word Mustafi

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

it means

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

Data has affected everything. It's widespread, right? It is extended. It says it applies to everything. Is anyone left out of ill will piano? Does anyone not experiencing your middle piano is it only applying for a certain group and not other everything experiences the only piano including those who are not being held accountable

00:05:23 --> 00:05:35

because the whole universe is changing, right? It's even applying to the whole universe to the heavens to the mountains to everything. The Evil of filament the AMA is widespread, it applies to everything and this is why

00:05:37 --> 00:05:38

you is the follow

00:05:43 --> 00:05:51

up that indeed, the evil of this day has indeed become widespread until it fills the heavens

00:05:52 --> 00:06:00

is talking about how widespread the evil of the Day of Judgment is. May Allah azza wa jal protect us on the day in sha Allah.

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


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

The verse we were discussing last time

00:06:07 --> 00:06:10

alomost ISIS while you were buying Munna

00:06:12 --> 00:06:15

be Myskina tema,

00:06:19 --> 00:06:22

reverse that mentions, those who are feeding

00:06:25 --> 00:06:26

the food

00:06:28 --> 00:06:31

to Al miskeen, and the team and the SC.

00:06:33 --> 00:06:37

And I believe we stopped there. We were still in the middle of it. We haven't finished it yet.

00:06:39 --> 00:06:45

Oh, yes, we were speaking about captives and prisoners of war and so on. So these people are feeling

00:06:47 --> 00:06:54

even though they love what they have, they are giving it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And they are feeding

00:06:56 --> 00:06:58

the poor and the destitute.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:06

And the orphan and the captain, whale for him all of his scheme and with iman, what I see.

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


00:07:09 --> 00:07:16

notice that each of these groups is not able to suffice themselves in terms of provision.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:23

And this is why Allah azza wa jal is praising those who feed them and the skin is needy.

00:07:24 --> 00:07:28

He is, maybe he is not able to go after his provision

00:07:30 --> 00:07:35

via team is also not able, because there's no one to help them go after his list.

00:07:36 --> 00:07:51

He doesn't have a father, he doesn't have someone that is spending on him or taking care of them. And this is the same with the captain who has been imprisoned and therefore cannot go after their food. So Allah subhanaw taala is commanding us to care for these people.

00:07:53 --> 00:08:09

And probably the most amazing ones, Allah is the captain, right, the one who was just fighting you, and trying to kill you, you are obligated by Allah subhanaw taala, to spend on the captive and to feed them and to treat them. Well.

00:08:10 --> 00:08:27

And this by the way, this is a revolution. This is a revolution in human rights. 14 Centuries ago, now they're they're only talking about the Geneva Conventions 1949. This is just 5060 years ago.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:50

But before that, if you look at history, and you look at the way that the prisoners were were treated, it's something amazing brothers and sisters, that Islam is calling for this. Now, when you talk about Europe, in the medieval ages, you talk about the the the the torture, the the the most

00:08:51 --> 00:08:58

inhumane methods that they were using to torture human beings, I mean, the the what kinds of

00:09:00 --> 00:09:35

imagination, people have to invent the different types of torture methods to torture human beings. And this is just a few centuries back. So when you're talking about this type of treatment for prisoners and captives 14 Centuries ago, this is no less than a human rights revolution, a revolution in human rights and the understanding of human rights brought by Islam, opposite to all of the propaganda that we hear today against Islam, and the mercy of Islam.

00:09:36 --> 00:09:48

We spoke last time about the example of Duma. And this is a case in the time of Prophet and itself and then one may say, Well, this is only during the time of the Prophet peace be upon him or maybe during the time of

00:09:50 --> 00:09:59

the one write that came later, after that is all changed, and they were treating their prisoners of war in the worst way as they like to

00:10:00 --> 00:10:07

advertised today. So therefore, let us give another example that is more recent. And this is for a scholar that they hate

00:10:09 --> 00:10:13

and that they insult, and that they attribute

00:10:15 --> 00:10:16

a lot of the things

00:10:17 --> 00:10:22

and the violence that they see today they attributed to this scholar, and this is

00:10:24 --> 00:10:32

the person that they are attributing violence and lack of mercy to the second example, right from his life

00:10:33 --> 00:10:35

concerning the treatment of

00:10:37 --> 00:10:41

prisoners of war. Tamia, of course, was famous for

00:10:43 --> 00:10:52

supporting the jihad against the Tatas. And he was one of the foremost scholars who called on the,

00:10:53 --> 00:10:58

to participate in the jihad against these invaders.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:12

And one of the famous examples and the beautiful stories to show you, the good treatment of captors and prisoners of war is when he himself was held captive, along with many other Muslims.

00:11:15 --> 00:11:24

He then spoke to the leader himself, the leaders name is Raza, he spoke to him and he's basically

00:11:26 --> 00:11:35

speaking on behalf of releasing the cactus, and he's obviously speaking about the Muslim captors, the leader

00:11:37 --> 00:11:42

submitted and approved to release the prisoners, including himself in the Tamia.

00:11:43 --> 00:12:00

And upon that, the leader says to him, but there are some of the prisoners, who are not Muslims, but rather Jews and Christians, and maybe only Christians that we have taken from, from Jerusalem, those will not be released.

00:12:01 --> 00:12:02

upon that

00:12:03 --> 00:12:23

17 year says, No, who ever is a prisoner be the Jew or Christian, you have to release them all. Allahu Akbar, this approving, of releasing just himself for the Muslims, all have to be released, including the Jews and the Christians. In other words, not only

00:12:25 --> 00:12:42

the people of Islam are also right, the Jews and the Christians, they are to be released, and we refuse to leave the prison until you release us all. Subhanallah who knows the story who will

00:12:43 --> 00:12:46

talk about this when they're talking about even Taymiyah.

00:12:47 --> 00:13:08

But he's the great scholar that he was knowing these verses, and how Islam obligates upon us to treat the prisoners and the captives. So he said, no, they all have to be released one after another. And the leader has approved that they all be released and they were all released because of what because of

00:13:11 --> 00:13:12


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

because of seven Samia interceding on the part of the Jews and the Christians who were along with them in the prison.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:36

Way over any one of them became miski, in a way a team where as he said, even the prisoner and the captain of wars to be treated well. And even if you were to look, I mentioned to you the the article by Mr. Thomas,

00:13:38 --> 00:14:01

a US intelligence officer, he was talking about the treatment of polybags in Afghanistan towards the POWs. I'm not here to discuss my event from A to Z, everyone has their own opinion, based on the whatever news station they watch. But I'm giving you the example of a US officer who is

00:14:04 --> 00:14:15

exonerating funding of treatment of their prisoners of war. And one of the most salient examples is the example of Yvonne Ridley,

00:14:16 --> 00:14:23

who embraced Islam after the good treatment that she claims she got from the Taliban.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:41

We're talking about the good treatment of the prisoners of war. This is something that that Muslims worldwide know about and are fully not only obviously convinced of, but are ready to implement and this is not something simple.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:46

And especially when, even today, we talk about

00:14:47 --> 00:14:55

secret prisons all over the world, even for the supposedly leaders, right, and they candle their

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

human rights and democracy talking about secret

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

prisons in different places just because they don't want to tarnish their own reputation. So they'll not torture their prisoners on their own in their homeland. They'll torture them elsewhere, even now, in our time. And we're talking about 14 centuries ago at the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:15:20 --> 00:15:23

The people they call nomads, the people they call

00:15:24 --> 00:16:07

barbers or whatever they want to call them. These are the people who are teaching us human rights today, because of how they treated prisoners and captives. And all throughout the history of Islam, which was a major reason for many people across the centuries to accept Islam, when they saw how they are treating the prisoners of war. They are not some piece of meat, like animal meat that you can tear up in different ways, and to torture and things of that nature. When you go back to the history, let's say of the Crusaders, when we talk about Muslim Spain, when we talk about the civilization, they immediately in 1492, when the Christians came in, everything changed. Who hasn't

00:16:07 --> 00:16:22

read about the Spanish Inquisition, and the different ways they used to force not the only unfortunate not only the, the the non Christians, such as the Muslims or the Jews, their own Christians that were not on their own,

00:16:24 --> 00:16:33

were tortured, and burned. And in ways brothers and sisters that it is it's difficult to describe or to explain

00:16:36 --> 00:16:37

where our human rights

00:16:38 --> 00:17:10

14 Centuries ago, Islam is teaching the world human rights, and how to treat prisoners and captives. And those that even though they were trying to kill you just a few moments before, but now they are under your responsibility, you are to keep them alive, you are to care for them. You are to feed them and to feed the wealth not to feed them, what you feed the dogs and the cat. To feed them well. And to take care of them. This is part of the message of Islam, where you're gonna

00:17:12 --> 00:17:21

be miskeen and why your team on zero? This is one of the ways to gain the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa taala.

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


00:17:26 --> 00:17:27

Why are they doing all of this?

00:17:28 --> 00:17:46

Are they doing it so that people can praise them? So that people can tell them how beautiful their religion is? Are they doing it because they want money back? Are they releasing the prisoners because they want their ransom? No, even the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says that

00:17:51 --> 00:17:54

after you capture prisoners

00:17:55 --> 00:18:16

in the battlefield, after you capture them, and the battle is over, after that, of course, one of the options is to kill them, depending on the situation and they were some of the worst enemies to Islam as probably did for a few individuals after, right, but that was a special case. Otherwise, the Quran is safe.

00:18:18 --> 00:18:21

Either you let them go without ransom.

00:18:22 --> 00:18:29

If you forgive them, and you let them go, this is up to the ruler at the time, or you can take a ransom forth for it.

00:18:31 --> 00:18:50

These people are feeling these three types, not for anything, but the countenance of Allah subhanaw taala nothing but sincerely for Allah. They're not feeding these people except for Allah subhanaw taala they don't want anything in return. They just want the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:05

We feed you in the manual,

00:19:07 --> 00:19:14

saying We feed you only for the countenance of Allah. We wish not from your reward for gratitude.

00:19:18 --> 00:19:28

Now, one may ask, did they see that as they were giving that food as they were feeding them, that they say to them in the middle of the hill?

00:19:30 --> 00:19:33

There is an opinion among some scholars, but they said

00:19:34 --> 00:19:46

they said to them, we are only fitting you for the causes of Allah subhanaw taala. Why? To show them that we don't want anything from you. We don't need anything from you. It's only for Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:47 --> 00:19:58

and it could also be to teach them and to teach people sincerity. We're only doing it for Allah. We don't require money. We don't require payback. We don't require even gratitude

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

Not only that you don't give us something you don't reward us. We don't even want gratitudes we don't we're not even looking for a word of thanks. We're doing as promised.

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

And the other opinion and this is the opinion of

00:20:14 --> 00:20:51

Imam Mujahid and even if they said that they did not say it, but Allah subhanaw taala knew that it was in their hearts. So Allah azza wa jal praises in the Quran, so that people can follow their way. In other words, Allah azza wa jal is telling you what is inside the heart of the pious that he loves, so that we can follow them. These people collage and is telling you what is in their hearts. They're only doing it for Allah subhanaw taala they are not looking for any reward, nor gratitude.

00:20:54 --> 00:20:57

When to Cora, and indeed,

00:20:58 --> 00:21:14

this should be the way of the pious right, to try to follow these people and to make all of their deeds sincere. This this verse, my brothers and sisters, is highlighting the importance of

00:21:16 --> 00:21:18

highlighting the importance of

00:21:19 --> 00:21:22

something, no matter how much we speak, it is not

00:21:25 --> 00:21:33

something that we need to remind ourselves of always Allah, Allah says, a normal call in the middle to an app with Allah.

00:21:34 --> 00:21:35


00:21:36 --> 00:22:22

that I have been commanded to worship Allah with complete sincerity. And worshiping Allah subhanaw taala applies to everything, not just to prayer and to the cat, and different types of worship. We're talking about a badass in his general meaning all of it is for Allah. Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, he'll have faith, that my prayers and my sacrifice and my living and my dying are for Allah subhanaw taala, Lord of the Worlds, everything I do, is only for Allah subhanaw taala is desired, nothing else, no reward, nothing to dunya I don't require request or require gratitude. I don't want people to see me I could care less. This is the way it should be. I'm not talking about

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

myself, Allah azza wa jal forgive us. We're talking about what we should be, and what we should see. That we live only for Allah subhanaw taala, always seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala not seeking anything else. Just Allah and the pleasure of Allah only for the countenance of Allah.

00:22:42 --> 00:23:28

Allah, we want nothing but the pleasure and the approval of Allah subhanho wa taala. And because the process is so difficult, my brothers and sisters, it is something that we are to go after, in the same way that Prophet Muhammad wa sallam told us that the Quran easily flees away from you. And you should always go after this, otherwise it will run away. The same way with Islam, a few don't hold onto it, for dear life, it will leave you. And this is why so many different beautiful sayings of the pious generations before us about the importance of the class and the difficulty of the class. And so piano, somebody says, I never found something more difficult upon my knee than my knee. My

00:23:28 --> 00:23:30

intention. I'm always having to

00:23:32 --> 00:23:34

clean it, purify it.

00:23:35 --> 00:23:43

I'm always having to evaluate it. Because it always seems to want to turn away to convert just like our hearts, right?

00:23:45 --> 00:23:52

Why was it named because of how much it switches over all the time. Similarly, with your Nia,

00:23:53 --> 00:23:56

it's always playing, going back and forth.

00:23:57 --> 00:23:58

You are sincere.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:18

For one day, you are insincere the next day, but that's a very long period. You may be sincere for a few minutes. And then it switches and then you have to bring it back. It's very difficult. Sincerity on was doing things only for Allah subhanaw taala. That's why a person needs to always evaluate

00:24:20 --> 00:24:24

their sincerity. And this is why my brothers and sisters,

00:24:25 --> 00:24:28

if you don't do it, only for Allah subhanaw taala.

00:24:29 --> 00:24:40

Allah doesn't want it. He doesn't need it, we know but he doesn't want it. Meaning it will not be accepted. Only that which is done for Allah azza wa jal purely

00:24:42 --> 00:24:51

as when many questions arose, and they came to Prophet Muhammad Salah about people doing things for Allah and for someone else.

00:24:52 --> 00:24:59

Doing it for Russia and for family for kin doing it so that they can be seen different things.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:14

any partner you associate with ALLAH, whether it is a person, whether it is family and kin, whether it is friends, whatever it may be, that you associate with Allah and your intention. Allah doesn't need it. It is for the partner.

00:25:17 --> 00:25:38

Prophet Muhammad, Allah told us in the famous Hadith, where Allah azza wa jal says Musharaka and Shinto, the famous, he says, I am the one who does not stand in need of any partner. If anyone does anything in which he associates else with me, I shall abandon him with the one whom he associates with me, in other words,

00:25:41 --> 00:25:44

I leave him and his shift. I will, that's

00:25:45 --> 00:25:59

where there was some shakiness not accepted, but I was very serious when you think about it, how much we have to purify our intention, and make things sincere for him. But then,

00:26:02 --> 00:26:03

one may ask,

00:26:04 --> 00:26:11

okay, we know the importance of sincerity, we're working on our sincerity, our sincerity is severely lacking, of course, but

00:26:13 --> 00:26:17

when I do something, such as giving charity,

00:26:19 --> 00:26:20

and I give a poor person.

00:26:22 --> 00:26:24

And he doesn't thank me.

00:26:25 --> 00:26:29

Is it really wrong? That I'm expecting gratitude?

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


00:26:32 --> 00:26:34

We're expecting some time.

00:26:35 --> 00:26:40

Or maybe you just gave a clip? Or you gave a beautiful presentation. Right?

00:26:42 --> 00:26:45

And afterwards, the people didn't think you

00:26:46 --> 00:26:47

bothered to

00:26:49 --> 00:26:55

apply applies. Does this mean I am not like those who say, in no man's

00:26:57 --> 00:26:59

land resuming Condesa? And well?

00:27:03 --> 00:27:09

How about if I didn't want that praise, more than I expected?

00:27:11 --> 00:27:17

In the different situations that you can apply it to, but it came anyway. And when it came, I became happy.

00:27:18 --> 00:27:20

Is that acceptable or not?

00:27:23 --> 00:27:24

Important questions.

00:27:27 --> 00:27:34

If you want the DEA to be completely sincere, then you should not expect any gratitude or any reward.

00:27:36 --> 00:27:39

As for reward, all of the

00:27:40 --> 00:27:51

MBR peace be upon them all. What did they say? When they went to their peoples and they call them to Allah subhanaw taala? Well, not Allah, human edge. In Nigeria, Illa Allah,

00:27:52 --> 00:27:56

I'm not asking you for any reward, my reward is with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:27:57 --> 00:27:59

with Allah, Lord of the world,

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

my reward is upon him, I want nothing from you.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:19

Take it one more step. I don't even want gratitude from you for getting reward. I don't even want to use. I don't even want to hear that was a good lecture. I don't even want to hear my reward you give you a meme of this, you and your family and so on when you give.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:24

I don't want to hit any of this. If you want it to be absolutely pure and sincere.

00:28:25 --> 00:28:41

You should not expect any reward. So when you go and you give that poor person and he doesn't even say anything to you, and it bothers you, it means you expected some gratitude, right? When it bothered you that he didn't say thank you, you expected

00:28:42 --> 00:28:46

you should not expect it if you want it to be absolutely and completely

00:28:47 --> 00:28:47


00:28:50 --> 00:29:02

Don't expect it and don't ask for it and don't even be bothered. Just I mean, for all practical purposes, metaphorically blind yourself, close your eyes, give the person you're not looking for anything. In fact,

00:29:03 --> 00:29:06

you may have to go further than that.

00:29:08 --> 00:29:09

You may have to

00:29:11 --> 00:29:20

return their gratitude back to them if you wanted to be absolutely and purely sincere. Why? They've been telling me I mentioned in many movements.

00:29:22 --> 00:29:24

You mentioned that even though

00:29:25 --> 00:29:35

there's considered reward. Why? Because Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said that whoever does some favor for you, then reward them.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:52

If you do not find that what you can reward them with, then at least make up for them until you will know and are certain that you have rewarded them.

00:29:53 --> 00:29:54


00:29:57 --> 00:29:59

This is serious. So

00:30:00 --> 00:30:05

Make up for them, that you're not able to reward them. So to reward

00:30:06 --> 00:30:14

me, if I give a poor person and they make up for me, and I expected that, this is why the idea is

00:30:15 --> 00:30:16

even when you're giving

00:30:17 --> 00:30:23

them and you're not expecting God to do. Don't ask also for

00:30:24 --> 00:30:36

some brothers and sisters, maybe they give them something, you know, a really good amount, you know, just make sure, no, don't even ask for that, if you want it to be absolutely, and completely sincere.

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

Our mother,

00:30:40 --> 00:30:44

as I mentioned, went further than that, she used to give the charity

00:30:46 --> 00:31:01

and she would tell the person giving the charity, listen to what they say, and what do they make for us, so that we can make dua for love. And our words can be completely with Allah subhanaw taala Allah look at

00:31:03 --> 00:31:13

going to make it absolutely sincere. She does not want any she wants to return it. So if you want to be absolutely safe,

00:31:14 --> 00:31:16

listen to what they're making and return it for them.

00:31:19 --> 00:31:27

As he says, May Allah bless your family saying Allah bless your family, so that it can be completely equal. And the reward

00:31:28 --> 00:31:30

can be with Allah subhanho wa

00:31:31 --> 00:31:38

Taala and this is why some of the five generation said he says Baraka low fixie will speak about a color to the end of the

00:31:40 --> 00:31:43

what he had said, and whatever he had made

00:31:44 --> 00:31:45

for you.

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


00:31:49 --> 00:31:59

back to the question, what if I do so we agree, if you are expecting reward for thanks, and you get bothered that you don't get it? That means there is something wrong.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:05

But what if I'm not expecting it, and it comes along the way

00:32:06 --> 00:32:18

is not acceptable and after it can happen? Naturally, someone thinks you shows your gratitude, you're gonna become happy it's not gonna make you sad, right? Is that acceptable or not?

00:32:19 --> 00:32:21

This is answered by

00:32:22 --> 00:32:32

this a prophet Muhammad says hello, marriage on the authority of Allah who said that it was set to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:32:34 --> 00:32:37

that What about the person who does some good

00:32:38 --> 00:32:47

and then people praise him for that? Or thank him for that afterwards. Prophet Mohammed Al Salam, Salam Tilka, Hajj in Busan.

00:32:51 --> 00:32:53

This is the

00:32:54 --> 00:33:00

weather say, the bush, the glass tithing, which came for the believer.

00:33:01 --> 00:33:09

Quick, quickly, meaning this is the god tithing that came to him prior to being rewarded for this in

00:33:12 --> 00:33:30

color, explained the Hadith saying, This is good news. For the believer that insha Allah what they did, was good and accepted by Allah's reason. So he made it beloved to the people. So they praised him or they thanked them.

00:33:32 --> 00:33:34

Clear. Allah subhanaw taala

00:33:35 --> 00:33:47

inshallah accepted it, made it what it was beloved to him. So he made it beloved to the people so that people don't praise and so this is inshallah tithing, right? That came a prayer

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


00:33:52 --> 00:33:59

being rewarded in sha Allah and so this, if that happens in sha Allah, it is acceptable, and there is no problem with that.

00:34:01 --> 00:34:11

But as we said, don't expect don't look for it. And don't be bothered if you don't find it. And this is why,

00:34:12 --> 00:34:19

remember, you mentioned the man with a narration which is or a chain of narration, which is good.

00:34:21 --> 00:34:22


00:34:23 --> 00:34:24


00:34:25 --> 00:34:37

that ASA Alehissalaam, said that the good and righteous deed is the one where you don't want or seek any praise or gratitude for

00:34:39 --> 00:34:39

having a solid

00:34:42 --> 00:34:43


00:34:44 --> 00:34:45

This is the way we should

00:34:46 --> 00:34:57

act. The other narration where the chain of narration maybe less in quality compared to this one, they

00:34:59 --> 00:35:00

but there's only three

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


00:35:02 --> 00:35:21

the Howard. Right the disciples of Isola, asked him who is the one who is sincere in their deeds for Allah subhanaw taala. He said the one who does it for Allah azza wa jal, and he doesn't want or care of people praise him for it. Therefore, brothers and sisters,

00:35:22 --> 00:35:52

laugh and sincerity is that which differentiates one deed from another and this is the meaning of the Hadith. The Prophet Muhammad, in the Malama didn't hear that these are buying tensions, meaning, you will be reworded according to your intention, you and I may be performing the same exact deeds, but the difference between them is the difference between the heavens and the earth. Why, because of the fact that you are doing sincerely and I am not.

00:35:54 --> 00:36:05

Sincerity makes the difference, quality and not quantity, and it is this quality of data, which differentiated the Sahaba the tangerine from

00:36:06 --> 00:36:09

many of us today, even though the rain and

00:36:11 --> 00:36:16

some of them may have used to pray more than the Sahaba

00:36:17 --> 00:36:21

if you talk about quantity, if you talk about quantity of worship,

00:36:22 --> 00:36:26

and number of records, you may find that

00:36:28 --> 00:36:29

more than

00:36:31 --> 00:36:43

the Sahaba reason why because it is quality and not quantity. To cause that you pray with full sincerity and humility are better than 10 that you pray, where your heart is.

00:36:46 --> 00:37:01

out to lunch, to dinner out to whatever you are preoccupied with your brain is somewhere else. They are not the prayer. Sincerity is that which differentiate that these laws and make a sincere and shall

00:37:02 --> 00:37:04

be more commonly what did he then read to me?

00:37:06 --> 00:37:07

Well as you call

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


00:37:11 --> 00:37:15

awful middle of the night, a woman novels

00:37:16 --> 00:37:18

party all

00:37:20 --> 00:37:22

this shows you also

00:37:23 --> 00:38:07

that they were not only seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala they're seeking protection from hellfire. They are afraid of the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala they are fearing the Day of Judgment when they will stand before Allah. This is very, very important person system, because many people may not do their deeds thinking about that they do the deeds. They're not thinking is it sincere or is it not sincere? Make dua after you do the deeds, it may be a good idea to make some dua to remind yourself I'm doing this Oh ALLAH for your sake. I'm doing it all muscle you can protect me from the hellfire. Most people that just do the deeds, and they move forward. But this is

00:38:07 --> 00:38:13

a reminder that I'm doing this because I tell you a punishment. Oh Allah

00:38:14 --> 00:38:27

gave that purpose and sincerely for your sake. protecting me from hellfire protects me on the day of judgment, give me security on the day when people will be afraid and so on. Right? To remind yourself, because this is what

00:38:28 --> 00:38:31

they are saying or this is what they are thinking in their hearts.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:35

We are doing this for Allah, Oh Allah protect us or

00:38:37 --> 00:38:39

make us of those who are secure.

00:38:40 --> 00:39:03

Because of those who are happy on the Day of Judgment, they fear this day. They're doing it out of fear of this day. There's nothing wrong with that. This may be another added beautiful meaning from this. Because some people think that that's what is sincere for Allah is not requesting any reward, nor protection from punishment.

00:39:04 --> 00:39:21

If anything, these verses are showing you there's no contradiction between that which you do sincerely for Allah subhanaw taala or that's what you are doing, seeking the reward of Allah. Fearing the punishment of Allah, there's no contradiction, it remains sincere, in

00:39:28 --> 00:39:36

no contradiction. It goes together beautifully. We are doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and for his approval only.

00:39:38 --> 00:39:44

An added reason we do not see here. We fear from Allah, our Lord,

00:39:46 --> 00:39:48

whose situation is the following.

00:39:50 --> 00:40:00

Therefore in and a half. Indeed we hear from our Lord they are still in distressful. We fear this day from Allah subhanaw taala this

00:40:00 --> 00:40:26

is why we are doing what we are doing. And you can find this in different verses also. And by the way, this is something that some of the Christians say also that oh you Muslims, you only do things for the reward the only one paradise here. You're only afraid of hellfire not doing it for the sake of Allah. We say there's no contradiction between the two, doing it for Allah and seeking the reward of Allah and He is the most generous and you'll find other verses such as

00:40:28 --> 00:40:29

if you go to

00:40:30 --> 00:40:31

go to Surah to know

00:40:32 --> 00:40:34

what does Allah subhanaw taala say there?

00:40:35 --> 00:40:36

Go to verse

00:40:43 --> 00:40:44

go to verse

00:40:46 --> 00:40:50

37, in Surah Noor page 484

00:40:51 --> 00:40:54

where Allah azza wa jal praises the men

00:40:56 --> 00:40:56


00:41:05 --> 00:41:06

mom is fun

00:41:16 --> 00:41:20

for our men who neither come

00:41:21 --> 00:42:00

neither commerce nor sales distracts from the remembrance of Allah, and performance of prayer and giving Zeca they fear a Day in which the hearts and eyes will fearfully turn about salah Xhosa is praising those men who are performing worship seemingly fully sincerely and for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala of remembering Allah and prayers and Zakat and so on. They're doing is what they fear, a day in which the hearts of eyes will feel free to turn the boat. So there's no contradiction between even the reverse that they're doing, why are they why are they doing this?

00:42:01 --> 00:42:10

Fearing the day when the heart from the eyes will fearfully turn about Allah. Allah says in the other.

00:42:12 --> 00:42:17

And most probably this was revealed for us man holy Allah hon.

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


00:42:22 --> 00:42:24

Surah Zuma, go to

00:42:28 --> 00:42:29


00:42:33 --> 00:42:47

400 630 645 645 verse nine,

00:42:50 --> 00:42:50

on a two

00:42:52 --> 00:42:53

lane is

00:42:54 --> 00:42:56

all in the

00:43:01 --> 00:43:01


00:43:04 --> 00:43:08

is one who is devoutly obedient during periods of the nicest

00:43:10 --> 00:43:12

prostrating and standing

00:43:14 --> 00:43:20

in prayer, fearing the year after, and hoping for the mercy of his Lord

00:43:22 --> 00:43:32

loves praising the one who prays doing what fearing the hereafter there's nothing wrong. In fact, this is this is required. Because

00:43:33 --> 00:43:59

it is this fear of Allah's punishment and hope for is rewarded in sha Allah that will help to make your deeds sincere and only for the sake of approval of Allah subhanaw taala there's nothing wrong even the theory they used to perform these these different acts of worship, fearing the Day of Judgment and seeking the mercy of the Lord. There's no contradiction, my dear brothers and sisters between the two

00:44:01 --> 00:44:03

young woman novels and Campari

00:44:05 --> 00:44:09

what do they fear Exactly? They fear this day,

00:44:11 --> 00:44:13

a day that is described

00:44:14 --> 00:44:28

as a ruse and accompanied, we said that the the translation in such a situation will be difficult to help us we have to take each word and analyze it linguistically in the Arabic language. Our Boston company

00:44:29 --> 00:44:38

comes from others. And I was a means to Frog. Right? It's interesting that Allah azza wa jal is describing the day itself, as

00:44:40 --> 00:44:42

in other words, it is so

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

stressful and austere. This day,

00:44:48 --> 00:44:51

itself is called Davos not the people on the day.

00:44:52 --> 00:44:59

The day itself is right. This is similar to the different examples that we have seen in the past

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

So, where we talked about the the license so, remember, the life itself being pleasant, right?

00:45:09 --> 00:45:18

The length of the life itself is present that means obviously the people who are living that life are even more pleasant. So they are so pleasant that their life is sometimes called pleasant.

00:45:21 --> 00:45:29

The day itself is called the Hubble's. It's as if the day itself is falling. So how about the people who are experiencing that they will?

00:45:33 --> 00:45:39

Most of them said meaning that it is frowning okay.

00:45:40 --> 00:45:41

I'm sorry.

00:45:42 --> 00:45:44

The other adjectives

00:45:46 --> 00:46:01

two possibilities one they're talking about it being shady. Shit that humans piano. Human abortion company welcome Pereira meanings are the most distressful. Okay.

00:46:02 --> 00:46:38

And it is said it is talking about the length of time on Polygon meaning very long, right. When we talked about the day of judgment in the past, we talked about the day whose estimate is 50,000 years Yeoman Mikela metadata will have seen Elsa Santa Allah. So it is falling, it is long, it is distressful. It is the ultimate in being difficult. This is the Day of Judgment. This is the day my dear brothers and sisters that they are fearing. So they are doing these things fearing this day, and it shows you

00:46:39 --> 00:46:47

maybe one of the wisdoms behind it. Allah subhanaw taala is also reminding you how important it is

00:46:48 --> 00:46:57

to give to the needy, to help the slave servants of Allah subhanaw taala to be merciful towards them and easy when

00:46:58 --> 00:47:02

these are the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:47:03 --> 00:47:06

and these are things that protect from his wrath

00:47:07 --> 00:47:08

in the half of the

00:47:09 --> 00:47:21

company. Why are we giving the food to the poor and to the the orphan and to the captive? Why? Because we seek the pleasure of Allah We fear this thing which is most austere and distressful

00:47:22 --> 00:47:33

doing these things, being good to the slave servants of Allah is a reason for protecting ourselves from hellfire as Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said, it's whether we should

00:47:35 --> 00:47:40

protect yourself from the hellfire, even with a fraction of a date.

00:47:41 --> 00:47:43

It shows you of course, all of this

00:47:45 --> 00:48:02

with the caveat that there is schema. If there is no email, it doesn't help. But there's schema and in addition to that, you are being good to the servants of Allah you are merciful towards you slammed in their face, you help the poor and the needy, you go after them, you care for them.

00:48:03 --> 00:48:04

And when he says it,

00:48:06 --> 00:48:24

it means it also gives you the meaning that they are not only helping them by giving the money to some institution and let the institution run after the Pordenone go after them yourself. Go and give it to them in their hands. Go and bring the food

00:48:26 --> 00:48:29

order it and put it in front of them and save

00:48:32 --> 00:48:38

the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala there's that interaction with the poor, the needy which is required

00:48:39 --> 00:48:41

and which Allah Allah wants us to practice.

00:48:42 --> 00:48:50

Allah azza wa jal then will be pleased and will protect you from hellfire. This prophet muhammad sallallahu Sallam tell us about a

00:48:51 --> 00:48:52

horror Excuse me.

00:48:54 --> 00:49:13

A lady who is practicing Zina, one of the the major sins of Allah azza wa jal that brings on the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala. Allah azza wa jal will take her to paradise for feeding a dog, not the slave of Allah. Because she is what she is giving him something to drink, she saw the thirsty

00:49:15 --> 00:49:18

and she gave him something to drink, just because of her compassion towards

00:49:22 --> 00:49:23

sisters Excuse me.

00:49:25 --> 00:49:27

She's a believer, right?

00:49:29 --> 00:49:43

But for that Allah azza wa jal seeker to paradise shows you the importance of doing these good deeds towards the slave servants of Allah subhanaw taala it's a way to go to Paradise and to protect yourself. Same with the lady or the man who

00:49:45 --> 00:49:59

fell the kisses or sorry, in prison, that kid and does not fit her. They will go to hellfire and they will be punished by the Hellfire for doing that and now we're we're talking about animals. So this is what Allah says.

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

is requiring of us concerning our animals, then what about district servants of Allah? Go after the poor and the needy, find them, look for them and give them and be good to them

00:50:15 --> 00:50:17

being a young woman I've also

00:50:18 --> 00:50:25

what a D who is austere and distressful? What is this day my brothers and sisters? A few verses back he said the only one color

00:50:27 --> 00:50:30

and now he's saying Yeoman or Wilson company. He's

00:50:31 --> 00:50:48

talking about these people who are fearing this day, what is this day this is something beyond our imagination, a day where the young will become old will have gray hair, like the the the the old lens, a day where people will be like, scattered,

00:50:50 --> 00:51:05

going everywhere, like scattered insects. When Allah subhanaw taala resurrects the people, as they when people will be running around as if they are intoxicated because of alcohol, Allah is toxic, but the the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala is more severe,

00:51:06 --> 00:51:10

whose estimate is 50,000 years, they went the whole universe changes

00:51:11 --> 00:51:25

the whole universe, nothing remains the same. These heavens will be torn apart. For Allah sake. The heavens themselves will be torn apart, the stars will fall, there will be fires in the oceans and in the seals.

00:51:26 --> 00:51:34

On this day, this is something else, people will be resurrected from the graves and 1000s. Can you imagine the site by Allah?

00:51:35 --> 00:51:52

Have you ever stood in the graveyard and imagined because it looks empty? It looks empty, but there are 1000s of people in front of you or under the soil. Imagine in an instance all of these people rising out of the grease?

00:51:55 --> 00:52:18

Can you imagine the day of judgment on all the lines and all the souls that have ever lived in this world? All of them being resurrected and going back to Allah Salah who was 100 What is this day? This day is something else. This is the Day of Account. This is the Day of Resurrection, this is the day when people will stand before Allah subhanaw taala

00:52:20 --> 00:52:21

as Allah azza wa jal says,

00:52:24 --> 00:52:26

the young women are in your lap, let

00:52:28 --> 00:52:30

me reverse which really affects?

00:52:31 --> 00:52:33

Don't these people who are cheating others

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

don't have any certainty that they will be resurrected by Allah subhanaw taala to a great and difficult day, or they will, they will send me for a last panel of young men on

00:52:47 --> 00:53:12

a day where everything will be out in the open, everyone will be held accountable. People will be arguing for themselves, you will see everything that was ever done in front of you, and you will see all of your sins may Allah forgive you and me. And we will wish on the day that there could have been a great distance between us and those sins, but

00:53:14 --> 00:53:17

there's no way out of it. This is the day of judgment,

00:53:18 --> 00:53:19

human harms and

00:53:20 --> 00:53:29

where people will be falling, the disbelievers will be falling, it will be difficult and austere for them. Allah azza wa jal make it easy for us on

00:53:30 --> 00:53:32

this day, my brothers and sisters were

00:53:34 --> 00:53:39

this way upon them all themselves are saying go to someone else.

00:53:40 --> 00:53:44

The NBR is be upon them are saying, just me.

00:53:45 --> 00:53:47

Just me What are you gonna do?

00:53:48 --> 00:53:51

They think to themselves. It's only me.

00:53:53 --> 00:53:54

I cannot help anyone today.

00:53:57 --> 00:54:06

Can you imagine this? The prophets peace be upon them except Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who will intercede on our part Inshallah, on the day of judgment,

00:54:07 --> 00:54:19

but everyone else is just looking after their own. You're running away from your mother, your father, your mother, your sister, your husband, your wife, your children, you're running away from all of those. You're not ready to do anything for anyone in

00:54:21 --> 00:54:23

your company.

00:54:24 --> 00:54:27

I was a day my brothers and sisters

00:54:29 --> 00:54:38

were on no other days. Has anyone seen the Wrath of Allah subhana wa Taala like this the Allah

00:54:40 --> 00:54:50

this day what Allah has chosen has never ever been more angry than on this day, as profitable as ourselves in the Hadith. What is this?

00:54:52 --> 00:54:54

Where he will be so angry?

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

Of course.

00:54:56 --> 00:54:59

Look at the types of people that will be there for the

00:55:00 --> 00:55:02

cuz he's been quiet all

00:55:05 --> 00:55:06

he left you know,

00:55:08 --> 00:55:12

but you will be held accountable for it. Please worship

00:55:14 --> 00:55:42

in South Allah do whatever you want, but you will be held accountable on that day. He was quite all of this time. Yes, he could have taken you in an instance. Anyway imagine this. Can you imagine someone close to you or a friend or something of that nature and they're insulting you back and forth maybe a little child, just as an example. A little child, insulting you, every day you come out,

00:55:43 --> 00:55:49

come out of your house, he comes to you and he said consulting, you start throwing rocks at us and you are not doing anything.

00:55:50 --> 00:56:05

First day, second day, third day, and it continues for a year or two years or three years. But what's happening, your anger is building up this raging. Of course this is just an example of just to understand

00:56:07 --> 00:56:52

your anger is building doesn't apply to Allah subhanaw taala but in this situation, all of this time. And finally it is time to take your revenge. What are you going to do? Allah subhanaw taala has left you to do whatever you want, but on the day of judgment, these people the evil doers, the the disbelievers there, can you imagine all of the disbelievers that ever lived on this earth all of the tyrants all of the the the sinners they're all together, waiting for the account. This is a day like no other day a woman or loosen company. Allah azza wa jal protects you and me on that day, Melis Potala save us from His wrath and make us of those who are not fearful but are secure on the

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

Day of Judgment inshallah. Allah Subhana Allah

00:57:00 --> 00:57:02

Allah Amina Muhammad Allah

00:57:04 --> 00:57:05

behind me
