Loma in and I really became an element lion for I mean Calvin like Chairwoman Haney let's admit I mean I've seen latesh banner the week a lot of them I mean how old are you alone Melissa Hello Hello my Jericho so hello and the teacher has Nikola Tesla
We begin by thinking and praising Allah subhanho wa Taala in abundance
and we beseech him to send his peace and blessings upon the last and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and upon his family and his companions and all those who follow his tradition his Sunday until the end of time,
we beg allows the panel with Allah to teach us that which benefits us to allow us to benefit from that which he has taught us to increase us in beneficial knowledge.
And we asked a lot of panatela to protect us we seek His refuge from knowledge which does not benefit and from our heart which does not crumble from an eye which does not shed tears and from a soul which does not find contentment
we beg Allah subhana wa tada for ease because nothing can be accomplished without success and without ease from Allah subhana wa tada to be able to accomplish it as to what follows
Welcome back to yet another blessed Wednesday night class in one of the houses of Allah subhana wa tada
we hope and expect and pray that Allah subhanaw taala makes us of those who gathered in one of his houses to remember him and we hope and pray and expect that the angels have descended upon this gathering of surrounded it that Allah subhana wa tada has emerged us in His infinite mercy and that he will mention us as we are mentioning him in a gathering much higher than this one and much better than it
the topic for this Wednesday night class or for the next
two weeks after tonight, so, this will be a three part class inshallah tada
is centered around a very famous supplication, a very famous drought
known as see you will still fall.
Is the Arabic word for
what to say it mean? Master. Okay, what else? What else could it be? What else chief as you find in the in the title.
The chief the chief of a tribe or the chief of a group of people would be known as said,
we have some people named say, Michelle, first names and last names. Many people who believe that their lineage goes back to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or they have been able to trace this back. They named their families say it, for example, or they will name their children say this is very common in many parts of the world.
So see, it means someone that is honored someone that is obviously special at the head of a group of people.
They have the famous proverb in Arabic say you don't owe me a demo that the said the chief, the master, the most honorable of a group of people is the one who serves them, to show that basically serving people is actually
An act which is very lofty and praiseworthy.
By the way, you are most welcome to sit down on the floor of the masala and enjoy yourself and be comfortable. However, if you are more comfortable on a chair, we've got plenty to go around inshallah Tada. So please do not hesitate to grab one. Or if you would like one we can come and bring you on, anybody would like a chair.
Okay, don't feel ashamed or shy. If you need to sit on a chair.
It's here for you and your load data. Otherwise, it's nice sometimes to just sit in the masjid and sit on the floor and be close to one another. Our teachers used to say that come close to that there will be more Baraka and there will be more energy in the gathering.
But you can sit as close as you feel comfortable and shallow out there and
so I still see it we know what seed means and is still fall is two photos the Arabic word which means what?
is still valid doesn't mean forgiveness. Repentance is difficult doesn't mean repentance.
Thank you is still felt means to seek repentance to seek forgiveness, whenever you find and we're not going to delve too much into Arabic grammar here but whenever you find LFC into in the beginning of an Arabic word generally speaking, then it means whatever shape and so is still fall is to seek mo filler. The root word is law related to the letter of law for all which means forgiveness and repentance etc. So when we put LFC into in the beginning that means we are seeking it we are requesting it. Just like when we need rain and there's drought we praise Allah
is this spot seeking Sophia seeking to be rained upon to have water
etc. There are many examples of this in the Arabic language so it's still felt is to seek repentance. So Satan is the father I will say it is still is the supplication which is the the master the best supplication to seek repentance.
And on that note, we can spend a few moments talking about repentance about is still, the process of seeking repentance is what we refer to as tilba
tilba to return back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's an act of worship. Making Dora in general is an act of rebellion. As a matter of fact, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said about it. What did the prophet SAW Selim say about the Buddha in a very short Hadith? Anybody know?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, oftentimes you hear people quote, a narration, they say a Omaha's a VEDA. Anybody heard that before?
They say Dre is the essence the bone marrow, if you will of worship. This is actually an extremely weak Hadith. And there's no need to quote it because there is an even more explicit Hadees in this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a Dora, who under you better and this is an authentic, how do you fit is worship meaning the essence the manifestation of Riba of worship is in there and we will spend some time talking about that soon inshallah. But it's an act of worship and Toba. The process of seeking repentance is also an act of worship. It's a necessary one and it's a highly encouraged and praiseworthy act of worship. And it's one that Allah subhana wa tada loves
very much. A lot of supplemental data said in solitude Musa Allahu you redo Enya tuber alikum Allah wants to forgive you and respond to your Toba seeking of repentance and coming closer to him allows the penalty Allah said in the law, your hibou
being in the Quran, Allah loves those that are constantly doing Toba to were being they're constantly doing it. And the idea of Toba being constant is very important. It's not a one time thing that happens in our lifetime. It is something constant and consistent. And the reason for that is because we are also constant and consistent in our poor choices. And that is the nature of the human being. There is no one that is perfect. There is no one that is free of false prophets at alohar. It was seldom said khulumani Adam or hapa. Every child of Adam makes mistakes. Well, he wrote in a turban. But the best of those that make mistakes are those that make Toba they seek
repentance. It is from the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada that we have this process of Toba emphasized so much in our Deen
From the perfection and the beauty of this Deen of Islam, and from the tradition of the prophets have a long way to sell them that Toba is always an option. Islam is not a religion where somebody else has to do something for you to be forgiven, or somebody else has to make a sacrifice for you to be forgiven. Or Islam is not a religion where someone needs to help you in your process of forgiveness. But Islam as a religion, which comes to bring the link between the creator and the creation direct without anyone in between. That's the idea. When one of the companions in one of the very famous expeditions entered upon the ruler of the opposing army and he came into his tent he
told him, what do you guys want? What What's up with you guys? He said, this messenger came to us, to remove us from a bother to rebel in our ability
to take us away from worshipping creation to worshiping the creator of all creation. Women leave the dunia USA until Apollo and from the narrowness and the limited nature of this dunya of this life to the expansive unlimited nature of the popular as Muslims, we don't live for this dunya this dunya is an opportunity for us to better and enhance our situation in the Acela. That's exactly what it is. It's an opportunity, a limited timeframe for us to do what we can with the abilities that we have been given to maintain patience and gratitude, so that when we reach the Osceola, not if but when
we find ourselves in the NFL in front of Allah subhanaw taala. That situation will be a good and comfortable situation. And so that process of Toba is highly encouraged and because we are always making poor choices, because we're human beings, that's what we were. That's how we were created. We are meant to constantly and consistently do Toba as well, without getting sick of it without being ashamed in front of Allah subhana wa tada and we'll touch upon that some more. Shortly inshallah Tada.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in a Hadith, that if you were to
stop repenting, and doing Toba to Allah Subhana Allah, that Allah subhana wa Taala would replace you with another creation that would commit sins that would make poor choices, but they would actually turn back to Allah Subhana Allah in repentance and Toba because that is how much Allah Subhana Allah loves Toba.
Now, when we call upon Allahu Subhana, WA tada and we are making dua that means to ask for something to seek something. And we are doing this act of worship of we should understand that as an act of worship is something that is
extremely emphasized in the tradition of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, regardless of the outcome.
Take a look at these stories. Well, sort of La has a long way to sell them
is approached one day by Abu hurayrah.
You guys know who Abu hurayrah is?
Abu hurayrah that's not his actual name. What's his actual name?
Abdul Malik, nasaka dosi Sure.
There's over a dozen opinions about what his name is.
One of the most famous opinions of his name is Abdullah, among others. His name is Abdullah Abdullah Misaki dosa. He's known as Abu Laila for a cat that he used to be so merciful with and take care of what Allah is a small Hitler,
cat kitten, if you will.
This companion is very special, what makes him so special
narrating a lot of Hadeeth and incredible amount of
an incredible amount of faith one of the most out of the companions in the number of narrations that he related from the prophets of Allah, I do send them a blu ray. I did not spend a very long time with our solos I send them just a handful of years, just a few years with the prophets lie Selim. So he was asked, How are you able to narrate so many? How do you suppose I send them when you only spent two years with him and those that were with him their whole lives, they didn't narrate as many Hadeeth as you. He said that while you were all busy in the marketplace, I was busy following little sort of lines are a lot harder to sell them and memorizing his statements. So he was very close to
the prophet SAW Selim. He spent a lot of time with him. Abu Laila had a mother. This is in Medina.
When I lived in Medina, the school that we went to, right in the entrance of a school is a riverbed.
It's dry now. But when it rains, it fills up with water used to be where a river would run through. It's called. It's called the Panama. It's
called wider appeal.
It's a word in Mubarak. It's a blessing River. But why did I be
further down that riverbed is where abou Varela where his mother lived.
His mother was not Muslim, she was not a believer, quite the contrary, actually, she was quite hateful of Islam. And what I used to continuously call her to Islam in a very merciful manner, and invite her to come to the prophets of Allah who it was seldom, but she would reject. On one occasion, she responded in a very offensive way. And she said something very offensive about little sort of law, he's a little longer I do sell them and his feelings were hurt.
And so, instead of arguing back because of his kindness towards his mother, even though she was a disbeliever, because kindness to the parents is a part and parcel of our Deen and part and parcel of our obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. Even if someone's parents are not a Muslim, he goes to the prophet SAW Selim Abu Varela, and he tells the Messenger of Allah, Selim, please make dua for my mother.
Please make draft for my mother, that she accepts Islam.
And so the prophets have a long way to send them raises his hands, and he makes them and he says, Allahumma do Allah guide, the mother of Abu hooray Allah, may Allah guide her, and he makes us over and over
boutella returns back to his house.
And upon entering upon his mother, he finds that she is ready to now accept Islam.
But there are also law so seldom was answered.
And so I will hit Ella goes back to the salon salon, and he asks for another app. He says, Allah make me and my mother, beloved to the believers and make the believers beloved to us. And the process Allah made this
and we love a hula. And we're sitting here talking about him 1400 years later, and his mother, both the Allahu Allah and Homer, may Allah be pleased with them. But Dora the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he entered one day to give to my hotel. I want you to imagine this in a couple of days we'll have Jumeirah the process of them enters and he goes up to the minbar to give Juma Imagine you're sitting here waiting for the ultimate to start. And the prophet SAW Selim comes to give hotel and a man storms into the masjid and he yells at the top of his lungs. Oh messenger of Allah, Allah, so Allah in the middle of the hotel, so imagine somebody stormed into the masculine does that
everyone's gonna be looking at him. He can't even wait for the ultimate to be done. This man is so desperate in his need. He tells the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he cries out in front of everyone he says
that our plants are have died or plants and animals have died and our children are thirsty. They're starving. We need rain, make dua to Allah subhanaw taala to give us rain. And so the prophet SAW Selim right there in his exact spot. He responds by raising his hands and he makes their ad to Allah for rain. And he makes her and he pleads and begs Allahu subhana wa tada for rain and for mercy. And for it is and he continues begging Allah subhana wa tada the companions narrate, he did not stop until the clouds came over them. And then those clouds became dark and heavy and then they released and the water came down and the porcelain did not bring his hands down until his beard became wet
from the rainwater that was falling from above.
The intensity by which he made to Allah subhanaw taala knew it he said, and he made that in the Quran with three words
with three words in common Allah Subhana Allah tells us about nor he said in knee marylu urban fantasy
Oh Allah I am mother loop I've been defeated. I don't have anything left frontal said give me victory. For a barber summary assembly be mounting Mohammed Allah says immediately the skies were opened up with gushing water. If I don't know about ruinin filter, Palma Emery in particular and then from the earth as well water comes out until the water from above then the water from the bottom that's water coming from everywhere, what hemella that he allowed him to do so. And we carried him on planks and pegs meaning in his boat, the GDPR unit
it was flowing, the boat was moving everyone in it was safe. So many huge events that happened in nature as a response to three words that no made to Allah subhana wa Tada.
So there is powerful allows a penalty Allah loves what do we make. It's an act of worship. Notice
panel data promises to answer that.
when we hear these stories
for some of us, the thought that comes to our mind is, yeah, well, those are profits.
Those are profits. No, Mohammed Solaris Allah, compare me to them. Who am I? And BIA amazing people? Of course there is going to be answered.
Of course it is.
you can't tell me about that.
Why is my daughter not being answered?
To understand this dilemma, if you will, we can approach it from a couple of ways.
First, it's very important for us to understand that there is an act of worship, regardless of the outcome.
That's the first thing to keep in mind about that. And you have these booklets, some space was made in it for you to take notes, if you wish, if you wish.
But it is an act of worship, it's a burden, and it's one of the best acts of worship. Now we're going to be talking a lot about rabada worship, what we often translate as worship and what it means and what it constitutes because it's mentioned in the actual supplication in this course, in this booklet that you have here
allows the panel to add commands us to make
low sub panel data says in the Quran, Allah buku overruning. So allows the panel to edit says, Call upon me make it's a commandment. So it's something that we have to do
then allows the panel to us as well follow boo boo durante esta gibler, calm, I will respond to you. So here we have two clauses, there is a command and there is a promise from Allahu subhana wa Tada. What is in our responsibility is to fulfill that command. What is
with loads of panel data is to fulfill that promise. Whether or not we see that promise in the way that we want or not. We still have to fulfill that command and we will address the fulfillment of that process of that promise. momentarily.
alongside a panel with data, also in the Quran, tells us about who he is, by way of his perfect and blessitt names and attributes. When he law he'll Esma will husana federal rules will be her to Allah belongs the best and most perfect of names, so call upon him with them by them. Feather obeah again you find another feral mo a verb in the command form, you've got to do it. There's a commandment there.
And this also tells us one of the main purposes behind knowing and memorizing the names and attributes of allows the panel data so we can use them in our drop. So when we come across the name of allows the panel data being commanded by him. The Most Merciful the Especially Merciful most gracious, compassionate is mercy. A specific mercy for the believers and a general mercy for all creation. Then when we are seeking mercy we can say yellow manual Hemi yellow female harmony Oh most merciful have mercy upon me. Show me mercy and grant me mercy when we come upon the name of Allah subhana wa tada Allah honey and we're going through some financial troubles through a tight fiscal
Then we say Yo Honey, Oh honey, me. Oh you who is most wealthy?
Who is not in need of anyone? Good me well.
When we want strength, you're probably the most strong grant me strength. When we want forgiveness, y'all Follow me. Yeah, I flew here for any Oh the one who pardons and conceals mistakes, pardon and conceal my mistakes. And then that conversation becomes more intimate and it becomes more special and we are more focused now. Because we are making a relationship between how we call upon Allah subhanaw taala. And what exactly we are asking of Allahu subhanahu wa Tada.
So the first thing that we have to realize and internalize and remember always is that there is an act of worship, and it is something we are commanded to do regardless of what the outcome is.
The second thing which is very important, is not to be hasty.
They used to teach us proverbs of Ben Franklin isn't one of them haste makes waste. So one of them
is that it? Kind of like how Early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and
guys know those that some crickets.
haste makes waste. They say for the Agilent Nadella or any Salama with haste, there is regret and with being
calm and composed is ceramic is you will be, you'll find peace and you'll be protected or Jimena shape one. haste is from a shape one. And this is in matters of our life not in what is the exception to that.
The exception to that is yes.
The exception to that is in Acts of very bad acts of worship. So for example, if they say, you know,
sign for frigerator Let's pray fidget and you say, nah, I'll do it later. No, we should make the act of rebellion a priority. Somebody has a considerable amount of money saved in the bank and they're healthy. And you say, Come on, go for hedge. Yeah, I'll do it later.
I'll go for hedge later.
But that should not be the attitude with the bad. That's why moosari ceram said were ideal to La karabi literal bar. I hasten to you, oh my lord, so that you would be pleased with me.
So not to be hasty. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in a hadith narrated in a tiller meeting, the boss I send them said
mermin deran gadroon law, but nobody that makes
to Allah, a caller who is calling upon Allah beador within Isla bajo la who is the South Africa Shia
that nobody calls upon Allahu soprano to Allah except that Allahu Subhana Allah gives him that it gives him one of three situations. So when you make Dr. Sincerely, one of three things is guaranteed to happen.
one of three things is guaranteed to happen. What are they?
Imagine Yes, the G below hula hoop it dunia.
First option is that Allahu Subhana Allah will respond to this drop in this, excuse me in this dunya meaning in our lifetime, you will see the response to your drop. Oh Allah, I'm asking you for
health from my sickness. And then after some time, but hamdulillah you get over that sickness and you are healthy, allows answer to that right now in this dunya in your life, that's the first option. The second option is
what Emma and your Kufa and who shall we imagine a good friend who shall go and be
or is that along with a panel with data will repel some harm or some evil from him because of this.
You see, Allahu Subhana, WA Tada.
Somebody can, let's take the previous example that we use of someone being ill,
a person could be sick, they could be ill some kind of an ailment. And they make there are two alarms, the panel data for health, for recovery from this ailment. And they're making their
day in, day out month in month out year in year out. And they're still suffering from this ailment.
And so they come in, they say, I don't know it's not being answered,
well, this continuous throughout,
as it is rising up into the heavens, it can collide with something else that has been destined for you to take place some other difficulty. And the drought repels this difficulty from taking place. So in the case of someone who is ill, they can be making they're making dirt and they say my dryer is not being answered, we will say how do you know you're not being answered, you haven't died. It could be that this sickness would be so terrible that they would pass away from it. But they do not pass away.
And so that is a big difficulty that is being repelled by this. So there could be some harm that you are kept from that you don't know because it hasn't happened to you. Because our knowledge is limited our knowledge is limited only to cause and effect what we see happening and then we see the result that is our that is the knowledge of the human being alone soprano to Alice knowledge is not linear. It's not limited by our dimensions of time and by our understanding of cause and effect. The knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala includes what is happening now. It includes what will happen in the future, and it includes what happened in the past. But it goes even beyond that by including
what could have happened. If it were to have happened, how it would have been even though it never happened.
That is the aim of Allah subhanaw taala and we don't have that kind of knowledge. Well, not at two minutes.
Allah, Allah said in salatu salam, what you have been given from knowledge is really little compared to what is really out there.
As we always like to say, our teachers said, what you see is far less than what you don't see,
what we have been given access and knowledge to is very limited compared to what's really out there.
So, that is the second option, either that allow us to penalty the answers in the dunya you see the answer number one, number two, that Allah subhanaw taala protects you from some harm repels some other harm or difficulty from you by way of this drop, even though that's not exactly specifically what you asked for.
Or Thirdly, the third option is that Allahu Subhana Allah, you know, hula hoop Illuminati amati, for Europe, Lee behind us and that,
that Allahu subhanaw taala delays the response of this duet until Yeoman piano until the day of judgment. And so the person will come on the Day of Judgment, expecting a certain amount of good deeds based on what they remember of the good that they did in their life. And yet, when they stand before Allah subhanaw taala, they found a find a mountain a huge amount of good deeds. Where did all this come from? This is the door that Allahu soprano to Allah delayed, and it was replaced with a huge amount of her Senate, so on and
that person's status would be elevated. If there had there been answered in the dunya, they would have gotten what they asked for, but their level in a healer would have been at a lower level than it is because of all of these extra half Senate. So along with subpoena, which Allah did not respond to there, they're out in the dunya. But he delayed it for them in the villa to increase their record and their account of good deeds of Senate and hence their status in the alcohol is elevated greatly.
because of these drugs that allows the panel to add up postponed, because this was in his infinite wisdom. This was this is what is best for that person that they have a higher status in
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said use the Jabu the idea come
any one of you will be responded to your draft will be responded to Malcolm
Merlyn yesterday, so long as they don't get hasty.
What does that mean? They don't get hasty.
Don't get hasty, meaning that they make their ad they make your ad they make you out to Allah and then they don't see the answer. They don't see option one of those three options. And so they say, Ah, forget it.
This isn't working.
It's never gonna happen. I was never going to be answered.
When we have that kind of reaction, yeah, I won't be answered.
Use the Jabalia. decom definitely. It will be responded to any one of you mannheimia strategies don't get hasty.
You gotta wait. You gotta be patient. You know those stories we mentioned in the beginning, about how the drive was answered right away. Amazing, powerful, inspiring. You think that was always the case with the NBA with the messengers, Zakaria and Instagram. In the beginning of salata, Miriam when I lost the panel data tells us about his dad isn't EU NIDA and Sofia. He called upon Allahu Subhana Allah in the most intimate and secretive of ways
asking Allah subhanaw taala to grant him offspring to grant him a child. Why did he make it out to a lot in a very intimate and secrets of wait? Why do you guys think Hmm? Why did a lot tell us that he's making Dr. Dre and Sophia
he's having a conversation with Allah tells him inuwa and allow them woman need my bones my bones are weak I'm old wish that I love what sushi Eva
interesting. Word styler is a verb that you use in Arabic to light something you know when you when you like light a matchstick or you light a fire. He says my my hair my head has been lit with shaved with meaning glistening, meaning he's really old, really white hairs.
And his wife wrote it and he talks about that very Golden Age. Why was his Duran Duran huffy so heavily mean legend. Alia grant means offspring.
What do you think? Yes, me?
Absolutely. That is exactly correct. You see some authors, some authors, they mentioned that he made her fear because that's more sincere
Now that might apply to you and I, but when we're talking about the NBA, the NBA their level of class is, is very high. The NBA did not do anything to show off.
But what is more,
within context is that he was so old, and his dude was so
to the people unbelievable that he was ashamed people would laugh at him, you're making draft for a child, you at your age and your situation and you want a child now, the laws
stays there over man, then with, there's no chances for you for that. And so he was intimate. You know how old he was a carrier.
You know how old he was the either
beginning of solarium, some of the history books mentioned that he was 100 years old, and he was making this drought. How about his wife?
My wife can't have offspring. How old was his wife? Some of the books mentioned that she was 90 years old.
And he's making this throughout. So what was the what was the response to this drought? What did Allah subhanaw taala tell him?
A lot granted him a son. Yeah, yeah.
I'm not sure I love him in public semia. Nobody has had this name before. Yeah, from hate from life, because he would later be martyred. But Allah wants us to know that those that are, are killed unjustly. In martyrdom. They are alive. They're not actually dead. Yeah, let me jello mean Pablo semiya. Not only that allows the panel to either grant him what he was asking for. But Allah gave him even more than that. A lot didn't just give him. Yeah, he gave him a What did he say about him? That he was truthful to the Scripture. And the scripture that came before
was the Eden and say it remember he said say say you then what household ay ay b then you devote worshiper and he's from the NBA and he made him a messenger as well. Not only you get a son, you get a son who is the Navy was a prophet and a messenger. Allah subhanaw taala didn't even stop there as well. And last Peridot another sola, when he tells us about zecharia He says, what else Lana, Allah who's Oda.
In addition to the offspring and the child, allows the panel to Allah says, We perfected and we, we perfected your wife, spouse, what was wrong with his wife. Some of the history books mentioned that the wife of zakariyya, the beautiful wife of zakariyya, alayhis, salaam, she had one thing that she struggled with, which was anger, she was very quick to become anger, and she couldn't control her anger. So Allah subhanaw taala removed this from her. Not only did he give him a son gave him a son made him nebby and perfected his whole family situation. But Zachary, how old was he? 100 years old. You think he just started making this drought when he was like,
a few days away from his 100th birthday. He's like, Okay, time to start making this drought. Yeah, and you would imagine he's been making this dry in his 20s and in his 30s, and in his 40s. Yeah. And he decades and he's making this drought. And now he sees the answer. Use the Jabalia. How'd you come? Lend me a sturgeon?
You will be responded to so long as you don't get hasty. Or you have ad instead, I'm the same thing. What are you but it's not the ABA, and Nima, Sania boo antiope. Pamela he mean, you because I have been afflicted with this harm with this evil,
terrible disease. Everybody left him all his friends or his companions or the neighbors, everyone except his wife and two friends. Eventually, even those friends left him.
Some of the historians mentioned 18 years in this illness. Some mentioned more.
Years and years of making drought and being patient with this difficulty, but he didn't get hasty. Didn't say why aren't you answering? I'm a newbie, if anybody should be hasty whether it would be an AVI, I'm a messenger he's receiving washing is receiving revelation. Why aren't you answering my old law he can ask a lot directly. But they never did that. Never Never did the NBI ever do that. And the Quran is full of examples of the NBA of the best of people making their app to a loss of penalty Allah, they never got hasty. Musa alayhis salaam, with his brother held on
Moosa and Harun
in salted and off la penultimate Santa Maria mustard and Appleby, him It comes in a narration Moosa is making that Allahu soprano to Allah basically, punishes for their own and his people in their wealth and
for what they have disobeyed and rejected of the message, and he's making this drought and heroine is saying, I mean, I mean, I mean, they're making their
allowance, the penalty Allah says
finit festa Jebin Allahu Allah, Allah subhanaw taala says, but would you
But there were two coma
first ottima without any severe loss pantalla says Paula g but there are two coma your dura you to you and how long your drive has been answered. It will consider in his Tafseer of these verses, he mentioned that the st Jabba that the response to this came 40 years later
most and hold on not one that'd be making two NBA making together and their their outcome 40 years later. Why? Because along with the pound with data in his infinite wisdom knew that if it was answered 39 years it would not be appropriate or 41 years later, it would not be appropriate. But that was the best time for this drought to be answered.
Use the Jabalia hajikko Malema strategy,
without will be responded to so long as you don't get hasty.
In sort of bacala
in Surah, Baqarah, Allah Subhana Allah tells us an amazing verse about darat, who remembers it?
When it comes to them, it's sandwiched in between the verses of fasting
loss of two addresses. But he that's a bad end for Indian curry boogy Buddha today either than if they asked you about me.
Then I am here. I answer the call of own who's calling so long as the call as soon as they call upon me as soon as they make their failure stage eboli let them respond to my call.
most apparent Allah is calling us to make their act to him. Well, you may know be the Allahu neurosurgeon, and let them have a man in me, a loss of parents that is reminding us to have a man
with a person that doesn't have a man even be making around in the first place a person that doesn't believe in Allah, would they be making their act to Allah?
No. So then Allah is talking to people that are going to call upon him and make them out? Why does he then tell us to have human
beings because when you're in that situation where you are making your app and calling upon a law and then you don't see the answer, and we start feeling hasty, and we start making statements, we start having emotions, if we don't
control ourselves and and understand
the wisdom of Allah Subhana Allah is infinite, then that might lead us to harm our a man.
But do you have to have a man las panatela conviction and belief
that allows the penalty as your Creator is the most wise and the most able the most capable of responding to your
data is of two types. There are two types of data they say. Dora will miss Ella or drag
and drop the drop of seeking something of asking something
and the drama of Riba of worship and servitude. Your output up or center includes a drama where you are specifically verbally asking Allah subhanaw taala for something Oh Allah, Grant me health or law grant me knowledge or law grant me wealth a lot, etc.
Or Lord grant me Jenna, a lot of grant me light in my grave. It's such a derogatory badda
as we will come to talk about what a better is next week inshallah Tada.
Is, includes and encompasses all of the actions of the heart. The heart has actions.
The heart has actions.
Does the heart have actions? I mean, when he does the heart of actions, the heart doesn't have any actions. Well, I mean, it beats it's pumping blood through your body. It's a difficult job, you know, it doesn't take a break. One give your heart some credit.
But there are other actions not necessarily physical actions, but they are a loop.
Like for example, hope, fear of the punishment of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah jack, hope in the mercy and the reward of Allah subhanaw taala Inaba, pouring your heart out to Allah subhanho wa Taala Toba Lord humility showing humility to allow some kind of what Allah all of these are actions of the heart, they're not actions of the limbs, tangible that you see or you feel with the senses, but their actions of the occult. And when we are talking about the heart, here, we are talking about the spiritual heart, which is closely related to the physical one that beats but it is another dimension, not a tangible physical dimension.
And so, these are the types of data. Now when we are making drought we need to have when we are asking along with data for something then we need to have both
These types of darat manifests simultaneously.
And this is our segue into how to make them out and what the etiquettes of such are.
And the first is that there is a fluffs there is sincerity to Allah subhanaw taala. In any act of worship, there has to be a floss, there has to be sincerity, there has to be seeking of reward and pleasure from Allah exclusively alone. And so there cannot be to someone else there is to Allah subhana wa tada
there after you have the presence of the heart, so you can make out with your tongue and your lips, but your mind and your heart is very, very far away from the words that you are uttering.
And that's why it is very good to memorize these supplications whether you want to memorize them in Arabic, or you memorize the translation, there are so many drought and supplications at the pumps are seldom taught us and that a lot of startups in the Quran. It's great, and it's encouraged to memorize them, but it's not gonna do you any good if you're memorizing them, and you are simply repeating them with the tongue and the heart is completely unaware. Have no idea what I just said.
Not there. How is that a conversation with Allah? How are you actually asking Allah Subhana Allah for something,
it doesn't work, there has to be the presence would you have the bulb, the heart has to be there. And it has to be alert to what you're asking for. This is when you really have the perfect situation of Dora. And so those actions of the heart, they've got to be interacting just like their the tongue is doing actions and the lips are moving, and you are making these statements. And you are having a conversation with a lot of the heart also has to have those emotions and those inner actions.
Oh of Allah subhana wa it's out of amazement, gratitude,
hope and love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there also has to be your theme. Your theme is Arabic word which means certainty. certainty. The prophet SAW Selim said good rule of law her make her out to a lower end to multi level iyabo. Come up with a risotto Salaam and you are certain and guaranteed, you are absolutely positive that the answer will come that the draft will be responded to. That's the mindset and the attitude. You can't be making dry thinking in your head, maybe this will go through maybe not, I don't know, might work might not well, let me just give it a shot anyways. That's not the appropriate mindset to have when making dua to Allah subhanaw taala you have
to have certainty. I remember in Medina,
some of the residents, some of the locals of Medina, they would tell us about the old timers.
Because there used to be a lot of mezzetta a lot of farms and orchards, there are still many in Medina, but way fewer than there used to be due to, you know, urbanization and spread of buildings and cities and whatnot. But Medina used to be a forest of palm trees and other plants that they used to grow as well, is really intense and beautiful.
So they told us that they used to make a lot to spot when they would go out for the prayer of rain.
And they still do this until today. Every so often. There will be a slight twist to squat that people will come together and they will be seeking and asking a lot for rain and for mercy.
Begging a lot for forgiveness. They said what they used to do is when they would go out for a slot is this thought they used to prepare the
where the water runs through through the garden.
What did you call them when they you know they make those ditches in the soil? The irrigation not tunnels, channels that's the word I was thinking of water channels, they would prepare those water channels in the morning before they go out to salt out to this spot. What does that tell you of their mindset?
It tells you the mindset of I'm going for se Scott the rain will come
along is going to make it rain. They said they would go out for sold out to this discard the flooded seeking rain, they would go carrying their umbrellas.
You don't know if it's gonna rain or not. But it's not yaqeen Duran is gonna be answered.
Having that certainty, that's the mindset that you should have when making drought that has to do with your mindset and your sincerity and your heart. How about actual physical etiquettes there are many, we could spend a lot of time talking about this, but we are running out of time. Very briefly take note of these etiquettes you can make
at any time. There is
An act of worship which you can do at any time, any place whether you're in the masjid or you're at home in the morning in the midday anytime when you're driving, you can make your ad to a loss of panatela Absolutely. But keep in mind these etiquettes so that you can enhance your experience. So you can have special extra special effort in some times of the day or night with your drought and to increase the chances of your
being answered. So keep in mind some of these etiquettes but take them as that as etiquettes they're not mandatory, you could be driving to work in the morning and making them out to a lot. That's fine. It's absolutely nothing wrong with that. But sometimes try and implement all of these etiquettes so you can have like a full package experience. The first of which is to choose appropriate time. As we said any time is good time for that. But there are some special times that are more special. Apologize to them told us about these times. For example, when it's raining the boss I saw him said and it's raining is a good time to make that when a person is traveling make you
out when you're traveling do have the travelers answered and when a person is ill, they can try to allow the panel to either
in the last third of the night. The last hour of the night was the penalty the pulse I sent him says the NZ de la buena de la semi dunya and he asks a lot of parents are asked who is making them who is asking so I can give them who's seeking forgiveness. Oh forgive them in the famous Hadith of the lesser of the night so the last hour of the night is a special time in sujood.
It is said the time between the two hotels in hotel Jumeirah those few seconds when the Imam sits down between the two hotels is the time of st Jabba on the day of Friday. There is a time when there is Mr. Job. We don't know exactly when it is many of the scholars said it's the last hour of the day before the last hour of the day of Juma a Friday, Ramadan, the nighttime have been the last 10 nights etc.
All of these are good times in ambala and hedge all of these are good times to make. So look out for these times. Take note of them and seek these times out and dedicate these special times to do
so choose a good time.
And also in addition to those bless at times, also choose a good time for you as well.
A time when you are not stressed out when you're not running to catch an appointment or meet a deadline. When you can be when you are more likely to be focused. And pay attention to the door at
a time when you can be as free from distractions as possible, seek out these times. Secondly, it is praiseworthy and it is recommended to be in a state of Florida to be in a state of purity of ritual purity. Whether that means the minor purity just by making will do or if a person needs the major ritual purity, taking a shower, but be in a state of purity. Make all the fuel let's say you have some free time you say I really want to have a special conversation with a law you go and make will do as if you're preparing to make a law that you make will do and then you sit down and you make your draft because there is an act of a by that as well. And there's Dr. insula
which is amazing.
It is also praiseworthy to face the law.
It is praiseworthy and recommended to face that they blow when making drought. Can you make the drought facing a direction other than that they blow? Yes you can. But right now we are talking about extra special etiquettes that you can do. So it is good, recommended and praiseworthy to face the FabLab begin your drought by praising Allah subhanaw taala to add thinking alongside panel data, expressing gratitude and praise, exalting allows to penetrate and extolling Allah subhanho wa Taala and also begin your day out with one of the best forms of Vicar salatu salam salam, sending prayers and salutations upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And likewise, do that at the end as well.
conclude your surah with
thanks and praise and gratitude him that praise belongs to Allah and also concluded with a slot to Elena de Silva, Laura do send them sending salutations upon the Prophet sallallahu either he will send them
as part of your draft. As you are asking Allah for different things matters of this due to matters of the article also include in your draft, to make it a conversation, statements which Express humility. So for example, when you want to ask Allah for wealth, you can proceed that by saying Oh Allah, I am the most poor, you are the most wealthy I am most in need of you. I'm the most weak You are the most strong. In these few phrases you didn't ask for anything per se. But you are proceeding you're getting to that
request that you are going to make the follow up that you are going to make in that drop.
And follow the dirt out with good actions.
Follow the dirt with good actions, the profits a little hard to sell. I'm told us about a person who doesn't abstain from heroin, in their food and in their clothing and in their wealth. They don't stay away from how long for now use the job with us. So how is this person going to be responded to? So prepare for your drought by purifying yourself and purifying your wealth and purifying what you're eating and consuming in all different ways. And follow your drought by continuing to purify yourself. And when we say held on by the way, oftentimes, our minds jump right away to learn how long meat or hell hell on food, does it have alcohol? Does it have port? There is more to heroin and
heroin than just the physical ingredients? How did we obtain it? How did we obtain this wealth?
It also has to be obtained and invested. And the growth has to be in a halal manner as well, so that our dog can be responded to. And I used to joke about how is this person going to be responded to if they are surrounded by that which is impermissible. So proceed the door and follow the door with good righteous actions so that they will be answered and will be responded to. This is a brief introduction to this series charlotta.
