Episode Notes

The Messenger of Allah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:
“Actions are but by intentions and every man shall have only that which he intended. Thus he whose migration (Hijrah to Madeenah from Makkah) was for Allah and His Messenger, his migration was for Allah and His Messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage, his migration was for that for which he migrated.”

although de la umina shavon Ilan z

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

Bismillah

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

Alhamdulillah

00:00:40--> 00:01:31

Allah Himanshu rhodian fusina Dr. Medina Mayor de la hufa Mobile Allahu Allahu Allah, wa shadow Allah, Allah Allah Allahu la sharika or shadow under Mohammedan Abdo Rasul Allah, all that. All praises due to Allah, we praise Him, we seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead us astray. And whomsoever needs to go astray, none can guide I bear witness, that no one has the right to be worshipped. None has the right to our ultimate love and devotion, but Allah alone without any partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:31--> 00:01:57

is his servant and His Messenger. The best of speech is that of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the best guidance is that of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was settled. And the worst thing in the religion or the newly invented matters, and all the newly invented matters are innovation, and every innovation in the matters of the deen is misguidance. And every misguidance takes its people to the hellfire.

00:02:01--> 00:02:04

On the way I was thinking of the topic for this talk,

00:02:06--> 00:02:22

hopefully trying to make the topic beneficial and practical. Because many times we might learn something but not be able to act on it or walk away without any practical knowledge. And it's just some kind of information we stored in our heads. And that's not the point of knowledge.

00:02:23--> 00:02:35

The purpose behind knowledge is what we can act upon. And that's exactly what our beloved Mr. odo Lila when used to say, lm, a taqwa knowledge is taqwa

00:02:37--> 00:02:57

that was something that is usually apparent or it has clear manifestations. It's it reflects on our actions and our attitudes. The point of the lagna muscavado ligula and was making here is that real knowledge and element Natha. beneficial knowledge is that which reflects on who you are.

00:02:59--> 00:03:17

That's why learning, according to the earliest scholars of Islam is not storing information, as the majority of the students of knowledge do today. Because knowledge without being digested without being processed, and personalized,

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

could bring about a negative effect.

00:03:23--> 00:03:40

And that's the secret behind the companions, learning five versus versus at each time, learning the knowledge in Varian, and acting on that knowledge. And then after they have completed this, they move on to another five verses. That's the way they used to study Islam. And that's why they learned and that's that's why they excelled.

00:03:42--> 00:03:54

So I belong to Mr. Abdullah level, and it was pointing to this fact that real knowledge is what reflects on your actions. And this is why in the field of education today, they say learning is being

00:03:55--> 00:04:34

learning is being that means if the knowledge that you learn, or the knowledge you acquire, doesn't you if you don't process it, if you don't break it down and personalize it and it becomes part of who you are. If it doesn't mix with your blood and you flesh, you haven't learned anything. You've just stored information. You're just like any other book on the shelf, or any computer that stores so many books, and data. But that's not what knowledge is all about. Knowledge is about acting. And that's the definition that the scholars give to alhuda alhuda Medina

00:04:35--> 00:04:55

en las pantallas says that he sent his professors along with the Buddha and Dean who the the guidance the scholars say that's beneficial knowledge that has the potential to change your behavior to change who you are to change your ways in acting. What didn't help is the actual acting on knowledge.

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

So if you learn something and you don't, ultimately you don't act upon it in

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

doesn't change you. It doesn't make you a different person in a sense. Then in brief, you've wasted your time because you will be questioned about that time and you will be questioned about that knowledge. What did you do with it?

00:05:12--> 00:05:33

That's why the professor sanlam used to seek refuge in a lot every day. Every morning, he would say Alabama in order to become an element, Lanza or Allah, I seek your protection, I seek refuge in You from knowledge that is not beneficial. That means knowledge that will not reflect on me knowledge that will not make me better.

00:05:35--> 00:05:39

So hopefully inshallah this night and these few moments

00:05:41--> 00:05:49

we'll try to share something that is hopefully beneficial. Now, I would like to start with a question. That means I haven't started yet. I'll start with a question.

00:05:52--> 00:05:55

Why did you come here? To the mustard?

00:05:57--> 00:06:03

This special visit that you paid to this semester to the house of Allah, why did you come to the masjid?

00:06:06--> 00:06:11

To learn new things? Okay, that's one answer. Who has another reason?

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

Why did you come to the masjid?

00:06:14--> 00:06:25

Okay, who has an answer but doesn't want to share with us? Keep it to yourself? I don't mind. But who doesn't have a reason to come to the masjid? Who came to the masjid without a reason?

00:06:26--> 00:06:31

without a purpose? Anyone just happened to find they found themselves walking through the door into the masjid

00:06:32--> 00:06:42

is anyone you know? Does anyone come to the masjid that way? Just found themselves walking through the door into the masjid no one so everyone has a reason

00:06:44--> 00:06:45

okay

00:06:49--> 00:06:53

leave it okay at that point and I'll come back to inshallah later.

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

There's a beautiful Hadith that we all know very well.

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

That is reported by

00:07:04--> 00:07:12

Muslim aside Bahar is a Muslim most of the books start with this Hadith, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in

00:07:15--> 00:07:15

in

00:07:16--> 00:07:37

Binney yet indeed actions or deeds are by intentions, by their intentions. Were in the medical memory in Manoa and every person will get that which they intended. That's a beautiful Hadith. Imam Shafi says one instance he says this is half of the deen of Islam.

00:07:38--> 00:07:55

These few words are half of the deen of Islam. Imagine if we learn half of Islam so practically, and in a beneficial way what could happen to us, so many things would change it change in our lives. And another instance in his book alone Kitab alone. Imam Shafi says this hadith

00:07:56--> 00:07:59

constitutes a third of Islam.

00:08:00--> 00:08:14

A third of Islam, he was talking about a different angle, I'm concerned mainly with his first statement, this Hadeeth represents half of Islam. That means if you understand it well, and act upon it, you have half of Islam secured, you've guaranteed that.

00:08:17--> 00:08:27

Now usually we get the basic interpretation when we say, okay, deeds are by their intention. Can anyone give me an explanation?

00:08:29--> 00:08:31

I don't like doing all the talking, by the way.

00:08:32--> 00:08:33

I like to share that.

00:08:34--> 00:08:42

So who would give me the famous explanation brief explanation of this hadith? What do we mean deeds are by their intention? That's a general statement.

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

Can anyone give me an answer?

00:08:48--> 00:08:55

Excellent, excellent acceptance of the deeds is based on their intention. So if you came to the masjid

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

without any intention to pray,

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

you just came to the masjid to meet a friend. And you didn't want to pray in the festival. But you found yourself embarrassed. People are walking into the masjid and you're standing there. He said, let me just pray.

00:09:12--> 00:09:19

Do you expect reward from that? If you just prayed with that intention, purely with that intention? Obviously not.

00:09:24--> 00:09:39

That's the basic understanding of this hadith. But we have a general problem that you find it mainly with and that's part of the plight of the Muslims today. That's one of the reasons why we are weak Muslims are weak today, because because we aim at the bottom line.

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

And we forget the main body of Islam. You know, we always aim at the basic level of Islam, okay, just make sure we're Muslims, we still within the circle of Islam, I do you know, whatever is obligatory, even if I do my sadhana, I do them without kosher and I just do them to get by, but we forget about the whole

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Levels a man is an

00:10:04--> 00:10:11

my personal estimation from 75% to 80% of the legislation in Islam is above the bottom line.

00:10:13--> 00:10:17

And only probably 20% deals with the bottom line. And we have a bottom line culture

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

aim and get a bottom line.

00:10:21--> 00:10:28

Do you pray I five the I pray the five daily prayers the obligatory that's what I do. Do you fast I faststone Allah.

00:10:30--> 00:10:36

Do you treat your parents? Well? Well, I don't swear at them. I don't insult them.

00:10:37--> 00:11:00

That's it. How do you treat your children? at a basic level, it's all aiming at the bottom line. But the companions of the process and did not have this, this kind of culture. They had a culture of aiming at the highest levels of Islam. And this is something the prophets are seldom taught them when he said it as the ultimate law. If you ask a loss penalty and make a

00:11:02--> 00:11:23

fist approval for a dose Allah Allah, if you ask Allah for something for paradise, ask him for the highest level of Paradise and for those who died. That's what you should aim at. And that's why the Muslims really created a beautiful history that we still survive on the honor that we still have today is the remnants of that great era.

00:11:25--> 00:12:04

But we need to duplicate it. We need to follow that example of the companions of the professors hamdulillah We are proud of trying our best to follow the example of the Prophet of the Prophet Solomon his companions to follow their understanding of the Quran and the Sunnah. But that shouldn't be technical. We have to bring life to that concept, really studying the life of the companions. How did they carry? How did they go about dealing with Islam? How did they relate to the Quran? How did they relate to the Sunnah of the Prophet Salaam? What is what was the level of their aspirations, they would always aim at something far greater, far greater than the bottom line. So the bottom line

00:12:04--> 00:12:29

with Hadith is, the acceptance of the deeds is by their intention. So if your intention is for Allah subhana wa tada and His Messenger for Allah Spano, tala, and you do it in following the prophets of Allah, then that's where you will get. But if you do it, for another reason to get a worldly benefit, as we said, You came to the masjid to meet a friend, that's what you're going to get. That's the basic meaning of the Hadith. But that doesn't mean we stop here.

00:12:31--> 00:12:39

That's the starting point. Now, this hadith is so profound, do you think that basic meaning, that's everything that's half of Islam.

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

Now, that's the bottom line,

00:12:44--> 00:13:01

to really find out why it is half of his family members chefin and others said, we need to explore the depth the profound meanings of this hadith deeds are by their intention, I will give you an example a scenario that that is common.

00:13:03--> 00:13:10

You have two young men coming to the masjid, let's say that they are 20 years old, each.

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

They have the same level of intelligence.

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

They have the same skills. And they are,

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

they come or they read or they study with the same teacher.

00:13:24--> 00:13:28

And they put the same amount of hours or number of hours to the studies.

00:13:29--> 00:13:31

Ideally, everything is the same.

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

One of them

00:13:36--> 00:13:41

came to study, because he feels this connection with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.

00:13:42--> 00:13:52

He knows that when I learn to recite the Quran, and I understand it, I will learn more about Allah because Allah tells us so much about himself in the Quran.

00:13:55--> 00:14:24

I know when I learned the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Salem and learn all these etiquettes this beautiful way of life, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had her learn all of this, and this is my way to paradise. So he finds his heart there. And that's the reason he came to learn. Or he came to the masjid to study the other one. So a couple of students of knowledge are very good speakers, or he saw some scholars, people respect them. People pay a lot of attention to them.

00:14:25--> 00:14:36

And there's a problem, people go to them to sort out their problems. So that appealed to him. That's social status appeal to him. He loved it.

00:14:37--> 00:14:41

So he said, I want to be like one of those. I want that attention.

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

I just love it.

00:14:44--> 00:14:49

So he comes to the muster to learn to get that to reach that level.

00:14:50--> 00:14:56

Now my question five years down the line, five years from the time they started to study

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

let's hypothetically

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

They say

00:15:01--> 00:15:29

everything else is the same number of hours, intelligence, attention, etc. The knowledge they get exposed to is the same, the level of comprehension is the same. Okay? Do you think these people five years later, do you think they will be at the same level of knowledge? Or they would know the same things? Supposedly, they were exposed to the same teachings or the same studies? Do you think they would be similar in terms of their knowledge?

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

I'm asking the question.

00:15:39--> 00:15:40

Who thinks there will be the same?

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

Now who thinks will? Most likely?

00:15:46--> 00:15:53

Same? Who believes it's the same, please put your hands up, there's no punishment, and no rewards?

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

Okay, who believe there'll be different.

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

Upper I can see them.

00:16:05--> 00:16:09

So the majority disagree with you or

00:16:12--> 00:16:20

there'll be different, it can never be the same. Impossible, it's not there might be impossible for them to be the same.

00:16:21--> 00:16:28

And the reason is the reason each one of them had to study Islam, or to learn this knowledge,

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

someone paid attention to that one of the great scholars of Islam even

00:16:36--> 00:16:39

when he lost and he said, If Allah Al Hadith,

00:16:40--> 00:16:46

he attended battle, Royale Messiah, in fact, to balakovo life.

00:16:47--> 00:17:04

If you see the young man who just started seeking knowledge, if you find him searching for problematic issues, where there's a lot of dispute and debate, he's searching gravitating to these matters, these arguments, then right on his back

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

with big

00:17:08--> 00:17:13

handwriting, right, he will never be successful in life.

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

What did he brings up from?

00:17:18--> 00:17:30

Yesterday, the statements of our scholars are always deep. You can't take the surface meaning alone, it might give you some kind of insight, but you need to contemplate and dig deep. What does he mean by that?

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

How did he predict that this guy will never be successful?

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

Even in seeking knowledge,

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

from this style,

00:17:41--> 00:17:50

the fact that this person is attracted to problematic issues to disputes. That shows why he's studying.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

Because he wants to learn these

00:17:55--> 00:18:02

controversial issues. He wants to learn these disputes. He has tendency to arguments.

00:18:05--> 00:18:23

Because these kind of issues that have a lot of disputes. These are the ones that keep popping up in conversations. And by learning them, you can always prove your point. You can always pretend that I know about this. But when issues

00:18:24--> 00:18:43

that are quite clear are brought up most people don't think about them or don't bother stating their opinion because everyone seems to know about them, or no one seems to bother about them. But usually controversial issues come to the surface and people start talking about them. And then each one will start to prove their point and show how much opinions about this thing.

00:18:45--> 00:19:21

And how many arguments they can exercise proving the point at substantiating the argument. So, even heads are realized that since this person is attracted, and he usually gravitates to these arguments and disputes, it shows it gives a hint about his intention, then his intention is what to be argumentative to, to gain the skill to win arguments. And that's why he's searching these things. That gives you an insight into what the intention, the intention.

00:19:22--> 00:19:27

Now I asked the question, why did you come to the masjid? Why did you come to the masjid?

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

Everyone has a reason why they came to the masjid.

00:19:34--> 00:19:53

Unfortunately, when we talk about Islam, as I just mentioned in the beginning, we tend to be very technical. We like to use technical terms without realizing what they mean. This is why we find it difficult sometimes to relate them to our daily life. Why did you come to the mustard? Can anyone give me an answer?

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

The basic answer

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

no precisely. Why did you come

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

To the mustard to pray,

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

came to the mustard to pray.

00:20:06--> 00:20:09

What do we call this? That's the reason the brother came to the masjid.

00:20:11--> 00:20:14

In other in technical terms, that's his intention.

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

So intention is Why?

00:20:19--> 00:20:47

Why? Simple as that? We always think about the intention that before you stand, to pray, you think about your intention, I'm gonna I'm going to pray for what I have behind the man. Obviously you don't see it but you have this in your heart. Now, funny, you know, some sometimes people state the intention. And there was this guy in one city in Jordan is called now shall Ben used to visit it often.

00:20:48--> 00:20:54

And there's an old mustard there, this guy used to pray. He's an old man. And he would pronounce his intention.

00:20:55--> 00:21:07

When the Imam said Allahu Akbar could see that this man was getting troubled, because he was trying to get his intention. Ready, a man goes for record.

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

Why? He would say

00:21:11--> 00:21:17

I have the intention to pray for luck, however, at the old Masjid in the city of now

00:21:18--> 00:21:41

behind the Imam so and so. And he would give a script about all the circumstances as if it's a report. That was his intention, okay. For him that was making the intention. But we know that the intention is in the heart. But a lot of people when they when the word intention is brought to them, they usually think, Okay, I'm going to pray, what is my intention? I pray. I'm praying for lacava

00:21:42--> 00:21:44

that's it and Jamal, etc.

00:21:45--> 00:21:51

But that's a very technical term. The word intention is very human. Very simple.

00:21:53--> 00:22:06

If you want to know what intention means, ask the question why. And intention doesn't have to do with Salah doesn't have to do on the only with Salah only with fasting only with Zakah. It has to do with everything we do in life.

00:22:07--> 00:22:10

And take this as a rule without intention. There is no action.

00:22:13--> 00:22:17

Without intention, there is no action.

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

If you don't have an intention, you cannot do an action.

00:22:24--> 00:22:28

This depart from the technical Yeah, let's get a bit more human.

00:22:29--> 00:22:40

Without intention, there's no action except for the involuntary actions, your heartbeat, your breath. Okay, put that on the side. And we use that with everyday language.

00:22:42--> 00:22:46

When someone does something you might ask him, is that was that intentional?

00:22:47--> 00:22:48

Was that deliberate?

00:22:50--> 00:23:00

What are you asking? You see? Did you mean it? Did you have this intention? Without intention? There is no action. You know why this is now half of the deen.

00:23:02--> 00:23:07

You know why that is happening. Without intention, there is no action. That's how humans function.

00:23:10--> 00:23:11

I'll break it down a bit more.

00:23:14--> 00:23:24

I'll give you another aspect of intention. Once Allah when we talk about solar, we think about intention, just before we start, anyone disagrees.

00:23:25--> 00:23:33

Anyone disagrees about this. Usually with solar when we think about the intention. It's mainly the point before we start our solar, anyone disagrees about this.

00:23:36--> 00:23:37

Okay.

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

But that's not the right way to do it.

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

That's not the right way to do it.

00:23:48--> 00:23:52

intention is a continuous stream.

00:23:54--> 00:23:58

There is no point in your life. There's no second.

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

There's no

00:24:02--> 00:24:09

millionth of a second in your life that goes about without you having a certain intention.

00:24:11--> 00:24:19

Humans don't live without intention. To have intention is human. That's what mean that's what it means to be alive. Except for a few cases.

00:24:20--> 00:24:23

When you're sleeping, when you're unconscious.

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

That's when you don't have intention. When you are awake, you have intention.

00:24:31--> 00:24:35

So intention is a continuous stream. So when you start use a lot of people have a problem with Lucia.

00:24:37--> 00:24:46

A lot of people have a complaint about a problem for sure. They say once I stopped my prayer, in my mind goes all over the place. I think about everything except for the prayer.

00:24:47--> 00:24:54

I think about family business school. I think about politics, I think about

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

people in the Amazons, but I had to think about

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

last panel data, why it's an issue of intention. Because we think, because we fell in the trap of technicality. So we think about intention. It's only before I start my prayer, but intention is a continuous stream. Once you grow, heedless of this fact, you will, your mind will go everywhere, everywhere, and the prayer.

00:25:23--> 00:25:29

So if you want to maintain Yahushua, all you need to do is be aware of this fact that intention is a continuous stream, there's non stop,

00:25:30--> 00:25:41

there's no end, there's no moment of you don't suspend your intention. You always have and as long as you're alive and you're conscious, you have an intention.

00:25:42--> 00:26:00

So that's why the intention of the prayer does not is not limited to the beginning. But that's the most important part because that's the starting point. But throughout the prayer, you have to have intention. So when you recite Fatiha, you have to have an intention for why you're reciting it. And when you have this intention, you will start to have

00:26:01--> 00:26:11

when you go for record, you shouldn't be doing that. Ideally, you shouldn't be doing that automatically. It's just your body moves out of its own memory. No,

00:26:12--> 00:26:24

you should be intentional. Most of us go through our prayer without intention. It's automatic. It's our bodies, the the memory that is related to our bodies that goes down from a CT scan, Allahu

00:26:25--> 00:26:27

Allahu Akbar goes down for St. Jude.

00:26:28--> 00:26:41

You sit down, back for sujood up again. And most of us go through the prayer. And we can't even remember, we start questioning what like I am in. Because you've been you've been doing You've been acting without intention.

00:26:42--> 00:27:24

And it's Allah's mercy that he did not make the validity of the prayer, conditional or dependent on this continuous intention. Allah made it easy for us, he knows what weaknesses. So he just told you make sure that before you pray, you have your intention. At least that's the starting point. And it should help you maintain your posture till the end. And that's something we need to work towards. Now, where do I get this idea from? It's very common. Because you can't have a shoe that without this intention, I will explain more about intention, you will see how human it is how common sense it is. But we unfortunately, we don't think about it. This way, we need to think about so many

00:27:24--> 00:27:40

things afresh. When we read the words of the scholars. Sometimes we might think, okay, that's easy, I can understand it. But most of the time it's not. You need to dig deep, and see make connections and relate that to your daily life.

00:27:41--> 00:28:33

Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Al Baqarah, when he talks about the story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, and this may even be built. And Mr. Did How long is the order for Ebola, he will either mean LBT a smearing of banner cobalamin in semi rally, and as Ibrahim and his cinnamon is made, we're raising the foundations of a mystery that How long have a Kava, they were saying, Oh Allah of vanetta cobalamin or Allah accept from us? What does that tell you? as they were building, they were conscious of Allah. They were conscious why they were doing this. Remember? Why is intention? They were aware? mindful? Why am laying this brick. It's not automatic that I just do it out of habit,

00:28:33--> 00:28:33

no.

00:28:35--> 00:28:41

With every brick, and this is why they were mindful of allies. They were doing it in the process of building and they were saying, Oh Allah accept from us.

00:28:43--> 00:28:48

Or likes it from us. It shows you that intention was a continuous thing in their minds.

00:28:50--> 00:28:51

So we need to keep our intention.

00:28:53--> 00:29:00

Continuous, we need to focus. Now I have another question. And I hope I can get it better on a better response.

00:29:03--> 00:29:07

Sorry, I had some chili food with GFS and Hanif before the talk, and this is why maybe

00:29:09--> 00:29:12

I'm expecting more energy from us.

00:29:14--> 00:29:19

I want you to think about intention. intention, what shape would you give it?

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

It's a strange question. What shape would you give intention?

00:29:31--> 00:29:37

Am I say it's intangible worksheet, you can you can create a shape for it. That's something for you to think about.

00:29:44--> 00:29:58

I'll just summarize some of the points that I mentioned. intention is something human. And there is no moment there is no second in our lives without intention. As long as we are conscious. As long as you're conscious, there is intention

00:30:03--> 00:30:04

Number two

00:30:06--> 00:30:19

is simply the answer to why? To the question that starts with why. So when you pray, when you make intention for the prayer, are you really answering why I am praying are worth.

00:30:22--> 00:30:23

Think about it?

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

Are you really making intention? are you answering the question what

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

I'm doing here? Or why I am doing this?

00:30:34--> 00:30:36

Remember, intention is why?

00:30:41--> 00:30:46

That's something that you need to think about. Most of us answer the question why I'm praying for Raka.

00:30:49--> 00:30:53

acid, that's it. But intention is about why

00:30:54--> 00:31:03

are you praying that for a loss? Are you mindful that I'm doing this for the sake of Allah? subhanaw taala? Are you doing this expecting something from Allah, something in return?

00:31:04--> 00:31:13

That's what intention means. And you need to keep that, till the end of the prayer, you have to maintain it until the last moment. And even guess what, even after the prayer.

00:31:15--> 00:31:23

If you'd like to know more about this, all you need to go to do is check. In Roger, I'll handle his commentary on the 440 hadith of

00:31:24--> 00:31:57

his book, his famous Jeremy aromaticum. I'm not sure if it was translated into English. But even some of the expert a lot of the explanations or commentaries on the 40 Hadith, in English, they have quoted, eligible hanbali as he talks about intention, he talks about intention before. And he talks about intention during the action. And he talks about about intention after the action. And it shows you that intention is a continuous thing. intention is a continuous thing. Now, what does intention mean? What does it follow from? Why is it a human thing?

00:32:01--> 00:32:10

It's the difference between us, humans, and animals. Animals don't have intentions. Animals act on impulse.

00:32:11--> 00:32:20

Animals act an impulse. Everything in the world acts on Allah's instructions to it impulse. They don't have choice about it.

00:32:21--> 00:32:22

But humans have

00:32:24--> 00:32:30

angels. They don't have intention, by the way, in the sense we have it.

00:32:31--> 00:32:42

Angels can only do what Allah instructs them to do. They're just like the sun and the moon, they follow a set course and they can't break from it. They can't have intention.

00:32:46--> 00:32:48

So intention is choice.

00:32:50--> 00:32:54

intention is choice. And that's the whole reason we are created.

00:32:55--> 00:32:58

That's the whole reason behind our creation.

00:32:59--> 00:33:10

We all know the version sort of Baccarat and last minute element is the story of creation. Allah said to the angels, we've got a lot of bucola equity in nature, you know, fill out the halifa.

00:33:12--> 00:33:21

Allah subhanaw taala said to the angels I'm going to place on Earth, a halifa. I'll keep the Arabic word halifa

00:33:24--> 00:33:30

auto attack geography. May you've seen a few highways frequent Dima ananassa. Behind the corner.

00:33:31--> 00:33:34

They said a lot are you going to place on earth?

00:33:36--> 00:33:42

Someone who is somebody who will shed blood and bring mischief and corruption.

00:33:45--> 00:33:49

Now, at that stage, Allah subhanaw taala had not yet created humans.

00:33:50--> 00:33:56

So the angels don't know how the humans look like. They don't know what humans are all about.

00:33:58--> 00:34:11

So how did they come up with an assumption? Or prediction? How did they say Oh Allah, why do you place or why do you want to place on Earth a creation that will bring about corruption and shed blood? How do they know?

00:34:16--> 00:34:18

Let me see how many hands we have.

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

Give me any The short answer, don't shoot

00:34:22--> 00:34:26

that permission. Okay, let me get the locals first.

00:34:31--> 00:34:34

Excellent. That's one of the explanations in the Tafseer.

00:34:35--> 00:34:53

But there is no proof for that. There's no proof that the Djinn used to live on Earth. Okay, it's one of the statements of one of the sorry, one of the scholars they said there was there was some kind of creation on earth. And they did that and most likely it was gin. And this is why the English said almost the same story again.

00:34:54--> 00:34:57

Okay, but there's a stronger opinion.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Do you have another answer?

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

No, do you have no answer?

00:35:03--> 00:35:03

No, no?

00:35:07--> 00:35:10

Excellent. That's first step. Take it further.

00:35:11--> 00:35:12

What does that even mean?

00:35:17--> 00:35:19

That's what I call the canned answer.

00:35:24--> 00:35:49

The word halifa. Yeah, it means you have authority, you have power, you have basically decision. In other words, you have choice, you are given the choice of intention, you can choose what to do and why to do it. Now, the angels know that a lot created the whole universe, including themselves,

00:35:50--> 00:36:06

even including their intentions, so they don't have choice about the intentions. They just follow the instructions. And they know that this is how the world gets an order. Because it's from Allah subhanaw taala a lot wizards for it. So it's definitely going to be the best or in the best shape.

00:36:08--> 00:36:17

But halifa means Allah will give that creation, the power, or the the capacity

00:36:18--> 00:36:21

to be to have intentions and to choose.

00:36:22--> 00:36:38

So the angel said, Well, if someone else is going to make the intention, these people are going to have choice about their intention. What does that mean? It's not going to be the intention of law chooses for them. So they're given the choice, that means things will fall out of order.

00:36:40--> 00:36:54

Things will be in a state of chaos. Because only unless choice can be the best. That's it. So that's why they predicted they said that they understood from the word honey for that means this creation will have the ability to choose choice.

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

And they can have an intent the intention they want

00:37:01--> 00:37:09

to see where so that's why intention is something human. The angels don't have this animals don't have this the sun doesn't have it. The moon doesn't have it.

00:37:10--> 00:37:15

And that's the the very concept that takes us either to paradise or the hellfire.

00:37:17--> 00:37:19

Let me get some kind of feedback from you.

00:37:21--> 00:37:29

Now do you start? Did you start to see why mammoth chef and he said this hadith is half of the deen. Did it make more sense? Now?

00:37:30--> 00:37:35

You see, these are all meanings within the same Hadeeth. All of these are meanings within the same Hadith.

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

Now, a lot of people would like to do good things in life, a lot of people would like to lead a better life. The secret to all of this is intention.

00:37:48--> 00:37:50

intention is the secret of human behavior.

00:37:51--> 00:38:09

Islam is not something as I said technical that doesn't deal with basic realities and facts about life. Islam was sent down to make life just as amenable Liam said, a lesson down his Syria to make his to make life on this earth the best

00:38:12--> 00:38:13

in addition to the hereafter.

00:38:15--> 00:38:18

And Emmanuel claims as well concerning the verse and so that

00:38:20--> 00:38:29

and if you thought in abralon, Athena in more in the future or the future him, indeed, the righteous ones are in tranquility and peace, happiness,

00:38:30--> 00:38:46

and the evildoers are in a state of pain and agony. He said, anyone who thinks that the people of righteousness are in tranquility, only in Paradise, and the evildoers are in pain only in the Hellfire, that he's mistaken.

00:38:48--> 00:39:00

The righteous ones are in tranquility in this world and in the grave, and in the next life. And the people of evil are in pain and just ties in this world, in the grave, and in the hereafter.

00:39:02--> 00:39:05

So less than down Islam for us to get

00:39:06--> 00:39:21

to live in that mean, what does it mean to live it, to live it in the masjid, to live it at home, to live it at work in the streets, with your family, with your friends with your neighbors, even with your enemies in or even in your sleep?

00:39:22--> 00:39:57

and Islam is not only instructions when you sleep you just put put your right hand under your cheek and you say the other car on that's the that's the external side of it. But all of this has depth to it has meanings. You're speaking with the last panels as you sleep and you're interesting your soul with Allah. That means you building that trust with Allah subhana wa Tada. So even when you go to sleep, you should you have an intention. By the way. Do you know that when you go to sleep, you have an intention. People go to sleep to rest. There are people who go to sleep

00:39:59--> 00:39:59

to get reward.

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

From our last panel to add, like no other notable,

00:40:03--> 00:40:15

notable use to say, in nearly accessible nomadic comedy, that I seek reward from align my sleep just as I seek reward from Allah, when I'm awake, and I'm doing all these acts of worship.

00:40:17--> 00:40:30

How with intention, don't think I told you there's nothing you do without intention, there is no split second in your life without intention, everything you do has an intention behind it.

00:40:33--> 00:40:36

And that's a blessing and a problem at the same time.

00:40:39--> 00:40:44

Do you know why? Because intentions are part of this closed cycle.

00:40:46--> 00:40:47

cycle of life.

00:40:49--> 00:41:00

You know, the cycle of water evaporates, goes up in the clouds, and falls down as rain evaporates, and so on so forth. This is same similar cycle

00:41:01--> 00:41:15

that has to do with our hearts, intentions, actions, and it goes back into our hearts, feeds back into our hearts. And this is why when you do

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

an act of righteousness, you demand increases because it feeds back into your heart.

00:41:21--> 00:41:29

You demand increases. So you're, you're on a level to do more righteous deeds now. So you do more, and it becomes like an upward spiral.

00:41:30--> 00:41:32

But if you have the wrong intention,

00:41:34--> 00:41:35

what does that mean?

00:41:36--> 00:41:40

You're mounting, or you're on that downward spiral.

00:41:42--> 00:41:49

So in reality, and I go back to another statement from your McAfee membership, and he says, There is no standstill in life.

00:41:51--> 00:41:57

There's no point where you can actually stand or stay where you are, you're either making progress, or you're either going backward.

00:42:00--> 00:42:07

Because it's because this reason, there is no moment in your life without an intention. So if you're not making a good intention,

00:42:09--> 00:42:22

there's something else. There's another form of intention could be bad. It could be a lazy intention, careless intention. And guess what, according to that cycle, it feeds back into your heart.

00:42:23--> 00:42:45

So you've got this indifferent attitude about what you do, just do things out of habit. So there's the there's this indifferent intention inside you. And it feeds back again into your heart, and you grow in different sometimes you say, I don't know why I'm just like that. Maybe it's my upbringing, maybe it's the environment, I can't change myself, you can. But you need to understand how

00:42:46--> 00:42:53

Allah gave us all the tools. And they are there in the instructions. But you know, we always take them at the surface level at the bottom line level.

00:42:54--> 00:43:07

At the bottom line level, issue, the issue of intention can change your life completely. Because there's nothing you do without intention, nothing in your life you do without intention.

00:43:08--> 00:43:15

And intention, I'll expand a bit more here on this point. intention, decides what you do,

00:43:17--> 00:43:20

and the level and quality of your performance.

00:43:29--> 00:43:33

I'll give you a simple example. When you do when you do the things you like.

00:43:34--> 00:43:40

When you do the things you like, don't you notice that your performance is at a higher level?

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

When you spend time with the people

00:43:44--> 00:43:47

you like, you're on a different level.

00:43:49--> 00:43:50

Why is this?

00:43:52--> 00:43:53

Because the things you like,

00:43:55--> 00:44:02

attract your intention. It's a matter of intention. When you like something, that means you have an intention towards it.

00:44:04--> 00:44:14

So you have more intention, you have focused intention. And that's why you find the time that you spend there interesting, your performance is better, is at a higher level.

00:44:16--> 00:44:26

But if you do something, when you don't like it, you're very unlikely to develop the intention. So it's either a weak intention or a negative intention. So your performance is low.

00:44:27--> 00:44:29

Now, another example

00:44:30--> 00:44:34

that could bring the concept of intention down to our daily life

00:44:37--> 00:44:39

and you can take this as a rule, intention

00:44:41--> 00:44:43

or Attention.

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

Attention is a function of intention.

00:44:50--> 00:44:51

Attention

00:44:52--> 00:44:56

is a function or a result of intention. What does that mean?

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

a date is coming

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

One scenario

00:45:03--> 00:45:05

who recently bought bought a car?

00:45:06--> 00:45:08

who recently bought a car?

00:45:10--> 00:45:11

No. Okay, what's the car?

00:45:13--> 00:45:18

Sorry, Renault, okay. Did you intend it to be rental?

00:45:20--> 00:45:20

You?

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

Okay?

00:45:27--> 00:45:29

So that's another good example of intention.

00:45:31--> 00:45:33

Now when someone

00:45:35--> 00:45:38

Okay, that's the only brother who bought recently bought a car.

00:45:39--> 00:45:41

Okay, who bought a car last year?

00:45:43--> 00:45:44

Well, you don't have cars here.

00:45:46--> 00:45:51

Or you keep them for 10 years. Last last year we bought a car. Okay, what's the car?

00:45:52--> 00:45:54

galaxy? Okay.

00:45:55--> 00:46:02

Did? Were you interested in that type of cars and that brand specific brand? Okay. How long did you search for it?

00:46:05--> 00:46:13

Good to three months. I want you to go back to the moment you decided you wanted to buy a galaxy car? Yeah.

00:46:15--> 00:46:18

Go back in time to that moment. Think carefully.

00:46:19--> 00:46:28

Do you remember the date or the specific time you just had that intention? You decided you made that choice I wanted to buy or search for this kind of car.

00:46:30--> 00:46:36

Okay, the moment you develop that intention? Did you start seeing galaxy cars all over the place?

00:46:40--> 00:46:41

Well, they're not common anyway.

00:46:44--> 00:46:48

Okay. But did you start noticing them? If they were around?

00:46:49--> 00:47:21

More More than before? Yes, that's exactly the case. And if you got interested in some kind of an outfit, trainers, you wanted to buy them any kind isn't sometimes a book, you wanted to buy it you got interested in the subject. And then you wanted to get it get that you know, outfit or that pair of trainers. All of a sudden you see everyone is wearing them. All of a sudden you see people walking down the street wearing a pair of shoes.

00:47:22--> 00:47:26

Why all of a sudden everyone is interested. Now they've been there

00:47:28--> 00:47:35

since ages, but it's your intention that created what attention

00:47:36--> 00:47:40

you started your mind became sharper at detecting things

00:47:41--> 00:47:44

that you want things you have things you have an intention for.

00:47:46--> 00:47:54

You see why you see how powerful intention is? Now let me go back to my example. It all feeds in by together

00:47:56--> 00:47:59

the two students of knowledge who were studying

00:48:01--> 00:48:02

Do you think now?

00:48:04--> 00:48:24

Do you think no more than that they will arrive at different places, different levels of knowledge, different pieces of information. Yeah. Because of the difference in different intention. They have a different intention. And then decided and determined what the minds became acute

00:48:26--> 00:48:37

at discerning and detecting because your attention is a function of your intention. So attention or intention shapes your life.

00:48:39--> 00:49:07

So in the prayer, if someone's intention is truly to pray for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. If they know for sure that this prayer, if I do it well will bring me closer to Allah, Allah to Allah, before you go down to the court, you know what meaning this Rico has, you know, how much it's loaded with meanings that relate to my heart and my relationship with Allah, what does it mean when I put my head down in front of a loss penalty? What does it mean? Why am I doing it?

00:49:08--> 00:49:10

When you have this intention, by the way,

00:49:12--> 00:49:15

this thought processes intention. So once you have it,

00:49:16--> 00:49:22

you will start to pick most of insula the inner thought were there before.

00:49:24--> 00:49:33

There is so much beauty in Salah that most of us have no clue about you know why? Because there's no attention. Why?

00:49:35--> 00:49:50

Because there's no there's no the right we don't have the right level of intention to generate that attention. So intention can change your life completely. Now all what I was talking about is intention about specific acts of worship.

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

I'm talking about segments of work broken it down to segments Salah fasting is

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

Even sleeping we said, you see with intention even sleep could be written on your records as good deeds sleep, it could be snoring and your has an ad meters running no faster than the petrol meter.

00:50:22--> 00:50:24

But there is a higher level of intention.

00:50:26--> 00:50:49

There is a higher level of intention. What is this? It has to do with the general intention in your life. And the scholars of Islam, the early scholars of Islam call us to call this allow the facetted the dominant passion in your life. Each one of us has a dominant passion in their lives. And what is this dominant passion?

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

Ideally, it's the hate.

00:50:52--> 00:50:53

What does it mean?

00:50:55--> 00:50:59

Let's use the same principles. What is the question for intention?

00:51:01--> 00:51:02

Why?

00:51:03--> 00:51:14

So, when you are trying to find out what is my dominant passion in life, that means what is my general intention? in life? What is the intention of my life? You're asking why

00:51:16--> 00:51:17

I'm here. Why?

00:51:18--> 00:51:25

What's the point of me living? What's the point of me being here? What's the point of me waking up in the morning? Why?

00:51:28--> 00:51:35

Now if you answer this question, honestly enough, it will tell you so much about yourself. When you wake up in the morning.

00:51:37--> 00:51:39

Where does my heart go?

00:51:41--> 00:51:42

Die first thing about my job?

00:51:43--> 00:51:45

Do I first think about

00:51:46--> 00:51:47

my studies?

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

Do I first think about think about my family?

00:51:53--> 00:51:54

Do I first think about

00:51:55--> 00:51:57

think about probably helping someone.

00:51:58--> 00:52:00

All of these are not necessarily bad or good.

00:52:02--> 00:52:08

But are they in the right place? Because you are meant to live this life?

00:52:09--> 00:52:24

To worship Allah alone one Mahalo to Legion Noel, inside Yamato, we all know this verse. We are created here to worship Allah. Why? That's the answer to this question about our lives is to worship Allah.

00:52:26--> 00:52:34

So if we don't wake up in the morning, passionate about this, fully engaged with it, there's a problem.

00:52:36--> 00:52:41

When we go to bed, if that's not what we think about, if that's not what we're worried about,

00:52:42--> 00:52:44

something there something missing.

00:52:46--> 00:52:59

Now, a lot of people try to they say we find it difficult, which is true, I find it difficult to develop the right intention. I find it difficult when I do something that I do it for the sake of Allah especially with things that are done in public.

00:53:02--> 00:53:14

This the answer to this if you develop the general frame, which is the goal for your life, the intention, General intention of your life, the why of your life, if you develop it

00:53:16--> 00:53:30

strongly enough, you will have no problem with this smaller deeds that you do in your in your day. It will just fall in place. You may you might even sometimes not think so much about the intention that you need to do for the prayer because you it's always on your mind.

00:53:31--> 00:53:37

You're always connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala now you see we're getting close to a level of some

00:53:38--> 00:53:39

level of ascent.

00:53:40--> 00:54:14

Let's take it from a different perspective than the the usual one. And tambu de la haka. Anakata, the worship Allah as if you see him, what does that mean? Only when you pray, you are in that state, no continuous throughout your life. You're aware of Allah, everything, you know what happens? That's the beauty of creating that general frame, that dominant passion, which is the hate, everything will be for you, not against you everything no matter what. And that's the meaning of the famous Hadith of the prophets of Salaam reported by a Muslim.

00:54:16--> 00:54:42

Woman in number hula, hula how amazing the state of a believer is everything, all his affairs are good for him. Everything. calamity is patient, that's good for him. It's a blessing. And he's thankful and that's good for him. How can we reach that stage, when you reach the level of sandwiches through intention that my life is for aligning for Allah subhanaw taala that's what I look for. So Allah is always on your mind. So whatever you see in this world tells you something about Allah.

00:54:43--> 00:54:44

Everything you see,

00:54:46--> 00:55:00

everything in this world, you see, tells you something about Allah and that's the meaning of some scholars of the past, who said a statement that was later on distorted or misinterpreted by a lot of the deviant sects. They said in the outer life, you

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

condition I see a lot in everything.

00:55:03--> 00:55:42

A lot of people misinterpreted that deviant sex and they took it to things that led them into coffee. But what the earliest colors like have always happened is for a year he had similar statements, what he meant. He meant that he has another statement. I see a lot in everything. That doesn't mean okay don't take literal meaning here is a human being what he means that everything tells me something about Allah, everything is a lead to Allah subhanaw taala. When can you get to that state? When you develop that general intention for your life? My life is for Allah. And we all know that which we sometimes open our prayers with, and it's there in the Quran.

00:55:44--> 00:55:48

Well, in the celerity one Oh, Suki woman, a woman Mattila Hara, say,

00:55:50--> 00:56:37

my prayers, my sacrifice, my life, and my death, my living and my dying are all for Allah. That means what does it mean? It means everything that has to do with me, ultimately, is for Allah subhanaw taala. So I'm always conscious about Allah, mindful about Allah, I'm always linked to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is why when even some hardship comes to you, you see the blessings in it, you see the lessons you can learn from it. And that's how you grow. You see, Islam makes us stronger. Islam makes us stronger. It's not there just for you to practice Islam and become this kind of some kind of a naive person, or has nothing to do some kind of hermit has nothing to do with

00:56:37--> 00:56:44

life. No, Allah sent down Islam. For us to live this life in its full

00:56:46--> 00:57:15

to tap the highest level of life. Because we can't make the agenda without this life. The raw material for Jenna is this life, you have more money, you can do more righteous deeds and that brings you higher in the sign of Allah. You have more physical power, you can use it for law you get more reward than others. You have education, you can use it for good for good ends. And ultimately you get more reward from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah

00:57:17--> 00:57:21

you have better business you make more money as I said, you can use it to strengthen the Muslims.

00:57:23--> 00:57:49

That's it. So you way too What did not create this oma to this also a lot not create this world to distract us. From the accurate a lot of people deal with this journey as if it's cursed. Yes, it's cursed. But don't take only this, this part of the statement. Carry on. The person said this dunya is cursed everything is in it is cursed, except the remembrance of Allah and whatever is about this, what does it mean?

00:57:50--> 00:58:01

That means this dunya is cursed if you follow it as an end. But if you use it as a means to establish the remembrance of Allah to get closer to Allah for good ends, then becomes blessed.

00:58:03--> 00:58:14

So that's why the profit center was sent to us to help us understand what this life is all about. And live this life. Now I'm about to recap, but I need to get from you some answers.

00:58:16--> 00:58:19

What shape Did you give? intention?

00:58:22--> 00:58:23

And something

00:58:26--> 00:58:27

around shape circle way?

00:58:30--> 00:58:33

cycle? Okay, excellent. Someone else?

00:58:35--> 00:58:44

spiral? upward or downward? Yeah. It could be output could be very good. Who has another shape?

00:58:48--> 00:58:51

Which is a spiral could be another cycle. They do feedback.

00:58:56--> 00:58:57

Anyone came up with a funny shape?

00:59:01--> 00:59:03

Excellent. Excellent.

00:59:05--> 00:59:08

panel. Every time I asked this question, this answer comes about

00:59:10--> 00:59:19

arrow. And to me, that's probably one of the best descriptions of intention because arrow shows intention. So it shows direction.

00:59:20--> 00:59:23

And that's what intention is about. It gives you direction.

00:59:24--> 00:59:34

And that has to do with choice has to do with choice. Okay, very good. Any other shapes? funny ones, orange

00:59:35--> 00:59:36

ice cream.

00:59:39--> 00:59:46

Okay, are always very interesting and the spiral and the cycle. Definitely explain.

00:59:47--> 00:59:54

One, some aspects of the nature of intention. So that's what intention. I'll just close with one question, inshallah.

00:59:58--> 01:00:00

Do you understand?

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

You understand the Hadith that we started with the famous Hadith deeds are, by their intention, if you think you've developed practical understanding now,

01:00:11--> 01:00:23

in this session of this Hadith, please put your hand up. If you feel you've developed practical, something that could really help you put your hand up, well, I can see them that just for my personal feedback.

01:00:25--> 01:01:06

Okay, hamdulillah. So that's inshallah, that was everything. And the issue of intention is so beautiful. And digging deep. In the words of the earliest colors, you will find treasures, they're beautiful treasures, things that. And honestly, when we say that, instead, we have the best system of life, we shouldn't just say that without realizing what it is. There are so many treasures in the legacy of our scholars, that we should dig deep, and bring out and develop, develop it. So it suits our present reality, we adapted to our present reality. And this will strengthen you as a Muslim and help strengthen the home as a whole will allow for the man in the middle, it also

01:01:10--> 01:01:13

does not hurt. If anybody has any questions on we'll take a couple questions now and

01:01:31--> 01:01:41

to reach the same level, while for sins. Okay, I'll ask you one question. Do you think if, let's say you're standing

01:01:42--> 01:01:47

in the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala. And you are aware of his greatness?

01:01:48--> 01:01:50

Would you say that that time?

01:01:52--> 01:01:59

When that's the answer to your question, because that's what I said is, you feel and you feel it truly, that you are in the Presence of Allah.

01:02:02--> 01:02:25

No, that's not the case. When they sin, they fall off the level of SL, and they go back again. That's what you man goes up and down. And that's why the process of selling in some instances for the major sins for someone to fall in them. They can't be in a state of right, amen. That's why the processor said, lay his knees Danny Hina has any woman. A person does not commit Zina.

01:02:26--> 01:02:46

While he's in a state of another Hadith reported by Omar Ali lower and the president says you're temporarily a man for oxy he killed her mama is a man will be taken away from him just put above him as a cloud. Then once he's done, and he's back to his wits, it goes back down back again to its place.

01:02:47--> 01:02:51

So we're not always at the same level, we keep fluctuating and that's why people fall instead.

01:02:57--> 01:02:58

Ask questions with the right intentions.

01:03:02--> 01:03:37

Just joking, though, because there's one of the great scholars of Islam said, Men, Steph hammer wha hoo, I have him for what often mineria whoever asks a question about something he already knows. Then there is a hint of showing off there. I'm not talking about you. By the way. I'm just talking gentleman just went through my mind. Because sometimes people come to the shape or the teacher and they ask him something, just to give him the impression that I've researched this matter and I know something about it. So he said that's a hint of real Be careful. When you ask the question asking for for the right reason.

01:03:46--> 01:03:47

Innocence Yes.

01:04:01--> 01:04:02

Yeah.

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

Okay, generally to answer the brother was asking about the angels don't not having an intention. Is that right? Don't they have any hint of intention?

01:04:13--> 01:04:24

They're not exactly like the sun and the moon. But in a general sense. Yes. In terms they have no choice because the last panatela describes them in the Quran. Allah Subhana Allah humma Amala.

01:04:25--> 01:04:35

They don't disobey Allah, no matter what He commands them to do. And they only do what they are commanded. They only do what they are commanded. Now,

01:04:36--> 01:04:39

the issue that you brought about gibreel, a Salah,

01:04:40--> 01:04:49

when, which is an authentic narration that when for own was drowning, he was saying a shallow, Allah La ilaha illAllah de m and V ban.

01:04:51--> 01:04:59

I bear witness that there is no one who has the right to be wished except the one worshipped by venomously. He still has the pride. He doesn't want to say Allah. He wants

01:05:00--> 01:05:25

Say I believe in the one whom the children of Israel have believed in. But he doesn't want to say Allah subhanaw taala so gibreel knowing about Allah's mercy, he feared that Allah's mercy might fall on him. So he was putting mud in his mouth so he doesn't say it and save himself. Now, there could be a few answers to this. One of the answers possible is that it's I can be that Allah, that was by the commander of a lost power.

01:05:27--> 01:05:36

Okay, that's number one. Another answer could be, maybe Allah gave him choice, only temporary choice about this very incident.

01:05:37--> 01:05:38

That's possible. Okay.

01:05:40--> 01:05:52

But generally speaking, the angel angels do only what Allah commands only when they don't do things out of their own initiative. There might be some exceptions here and there, but that's the general rule.

01:05:55--> 01:05:57

shavon

01:06:01--> 01:06:03

Bismillah
