Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu Welcome to a new episode of daily duets, where we go over prophetic supplications and prayers that were taught to us by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Abdullah bin Misawa narrates the following Hadith. And Abdullah he was the owner of the Allahu Anhu are the kana Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, your cold Allahumma in the local Hoda what took a while after for when Rena he said that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say Oh Allah, I asked you for guidance alHuda
what Tokar which means piety,
while alpha which means chastity, or self control, or purity when Rina and contentment or self sufficiency. These are four elements of prophesy seldom used to pray for, if you analyze them or look at them, they cover every aspect that a believer needs to live a fulfilling life and happy life, as well as a life that will lead them to Jannah in a life that pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala we all need guidance, to be able to tell what is right and what is wrong. We're surrounded with all kinds of elements that actually can distract us from the right path. So we need to stay on the right path. We need to be guided by Allah subhanaw taala and Allah azza wa jal has shown us the path of
good and the path of evil, but we need data to tofield we need to be able to commit to the right and avoid the wrong. So we need hidayah so we ask Allah for guidance, Allah money as a local Hoda, sometimes you know what is right, you know it is right. But you don't have the will or the strength, the faith that you need to actually commit to it. You know what is wrong and sometimes it's very hard to avoid it.
But that's when when we need Taqwa Taqwa is that willpower, that awareness of the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala that compels you to do what is right and avoid what is wrong.
On top of that, we need a favor or half half. That is purity, the purity of our hearts, we're again surrounded with all kinds of temptations. And it's very hard to avoid them. If the purity of your heart and the you know ability to maintain your chastity that is a gift from Allah subhanho wa taala. So when we see something that is wrong, and we know that it's wrong, and we have the will, we also need that if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once was approached by a young man who was so tempted to do haram, and he came asking the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam for permission to do haram. Right? He has needs emotional and physical means that he felt that he needed to fulfill
and he thought maybe doing it through haram means is the only way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reasoned with him, but then he prayed for him. Part of his job was to hear Kalba he asked Allah subhanaw taala to purify his heart, because when your heart resents or rejects and detects something, then you're better off. Finally, the fourth element is Alina self sufficiency, sufficiency or contentment, self sufficiency or contentment, the ability to have to fulfill your needs through lawful means, right? When Allah subhanaw taala enriches you. I have my dear brothers and sisters, or chastity, and self control is a way to lead us to self sufficiency or to to enrich
us, right? But like likewise, when we have when we're self sufficient or when we have when Allah subhanaw taala blesses us with Halal means to fulfill our needs, then that will increase the level of our purity and our chastity and help us maintain it. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep us guided to give us plenty of Taqwa piety, and to purify our hearts and to make us self sufficient and content with what we have. Ask Allah subhanaw taala again, for alHuda were to well Africa when Rena Allahumma inni as a local Houda with Toka without further Well, Rena, Amin was Salam o alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh
