Abu Dhabi, the atom Bala Wakulla gonna let him finish now. All praise is due to Allah, we praise Him. We seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness.

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

We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our own actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray and whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray and unclean guide.

00:02:24 --> 00:02:33

I testify. There is none worthy of our worship and devotion but the Almighty Allah alone.

00:02:34 --> 00:03:02

And I testify that Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him is his servant, and His Messenger or you who believe, fear Allah as he should be feared and die not accept as Muslims meaning in a state of submission and surrender to your Lord, or mankind. be dutiful to your Lord who created you from a single person, and from him he created his wife

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

and from them both, he created many men and women and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual rights and observe the rights of your kin. Surely Allah is Ever and all watch over you, all you who believe.

00:03:21 --> 00:03:23

Keep your duty to Allah.

00:03:26 --> 00:03:32

Or you who believe. Keep your duty to Allah, fear him and speak the truth.

00:03:36 --> 00:03:40

He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive your sins.

00:03:42 --> 00:04:14

And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The best words are those of the Almighty Allah. And the best guidance is that of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was, and the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters. For all the newly invented matters in religion are rhetoric innovation and bid and every bidder is misguidance and it leads to the hellfire.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:45

And Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah Allahu data collected in his Muslim and unnecessary and Al Hakim and others, collected in a region from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam where he said from a model and reality that will be Allah Wang Hua and not a soul Allahu sallallahu alayhi he was sending them I can I get the Ruby Allahumma between Michelob

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

This is a dua supplication

00:05:51 --> 00:05:55

from Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:05:56 --> 00:06:13

and it has profound meanings. He beseeches Allah, he asks Allah to grant him certain things, and this is that we should all as well learn and call upon Allah by means of these beautiful prophetic words.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

So we will go over this dua

00:06:17 --> 00:06:19

and we will try to draw as much benefit

00:06:20 --> 00:06:23

as we can in the short period.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:29

Allah who maybe really McIlvain Oh my lord, Oh Allah,

00:06:31 --> 00:06:36

I asked you by your knowledge of the Unseen, Allah knows everything.

00:06:38 --> 00:06:50

There is nothing that is hidden from the knowledge of Allah. Allah knows everything. He always knew everything. We humans because we don't know we learn.

00:06:52 --> 00:07:05

And our learning and our knowledge is limited. It has boundaries, there is no learning on the part of Allah, everything is known to him, what is and what is not

00:07:06 --> 00:07:11

what happened? And what hasn't. He has knowledge of all of this.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:20

So he says you're Allah by your knowledge of the Unseen or asked you by your knowledge of the Unseen

00:07:21 --> 00:07:39

and by Your power and might to create, meaning to create, to create living things and to create things, objects and everything because everything other than Allah is the creation of Allah

tilaka up was shahada and I asked you feel of you all respect, acknowledgement of your greatness of your mind of your glory.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:41

In my private and in my public life, when I'm by myself and when I am in the presence of other creatures with a no one sees me or there are people who can see me

00:08:43 --> 00:08:52

was Alec acetylcholine metal helped a fella Bobby what rebar and I asked you to guide me to speak the truth to say that which is true and good.

00:08:53 --> 00:08:55

In moments of anger,

00:08:56 --> 00:08:57

and moments of ease

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

was a local cost Dr. Phil fuckery. Well, Davina and I asked you to grant me moderation in times of lack and poverty.

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

And in times of abundance and Rich's

00:09:15 --> 00:09:19

was no cannot even login fed. And I asked you a bless

00:09:20 --> 00:09:21


00:09:24 --> 00:09:28

bounties from you that never run away that never one else.

00:09:29 --> 00:09:33

That never end never ceased to exist.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:42

was a little cup of water in Latin carpet, and I asked you and never ending coulis of my eye,

00:09:43 --> 00:09:48

meaning tranquility and peace and inner peace and happiness

00:09:49 --> 00:09:54

was a local Riva del Cava. And I asked you contentment

00:09:55 --> 00:09:59

after you decree has come true, has materialized

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

after things have happened, meaning grant me this contentment and acceptance of your khadar of what you have written what you have caused to take place to the things that have happened.

00:10:12 --> 00:10:15

Allow me to have contentment with your other

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

was a local bottle donation back then notes

00:10:21 --> 00:10:22

and asked you

00:10:24 --> 00:10:26

a pleasant life after death

00:10:28 --> 00:10:34

was a locale that another retailer would check and ask you the sweetness

00:10:35 --> 00:10:37

of seeing your face.

00:10:38 --> 00:10:39

And that's in Jana

00:10:41 --> 00:10:49

was Shoka Isla de aquatic and the yearning to meeting you. That's in this life.

00:10:50 --> 00:10:57

Fear of failure you don't want another one without a calamity or adversity that brings ruin.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:00

Well, African and cinemavilla

00:11:01 --> 00:11:16

and without a trial of misguidance that sends the person history. Allah home as a union busine at an amen or Allah beautify us with the adornment of Amen beautifiers with faith

00:11:18 --> 00:11:22

which can motivate and make us

00:11:24 --> 00:11:35

guides who are guided make us guided in ourselves and make us a source of guidance to others. Does that need any explanation?

00:11:37 --> 00:11:41

Doesn't that touch the heart if the heart has life in it

00:11:43 --> 00:11:55

so the philosophy Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told the truth when he said ot to Swami al Kalam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I was given the most perfect, eloquent words.

00:11:57 --> 00:12:01

He could tell he could communicate deep, profound sincere

00:12:02 --> 00:12:10

meanings that reach your heart that capture bigger realities, with a few words. That's the power of it.

00:12:12 --> 00:12:40

So let's try to draw some benefit from that. What lessons can we take from these beautiful words? First, the acknowledgement of who you're dealing with, you're dealing you're dealing with Allah who knows everything. There are no secrets, no hidden things from Allah, He knows everything. He knows everything. The unseen includes everything that we don't have access to Allah knows the seen and the unseen. Allah knows what happened and what will happen.

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

Allah knows

00:12:44 --> 00:12:47

what didn't happen, but could have happened.

00:12:48 --> 00:12:53

Allah and Allah knows what will happen and what will never happen as well.

00:12:54 --> 00:13:03

He does not there is nothing that escapes his knowledge, whether its existence or non existent. He knows all of that inside out.

00:13:04 --> 00:13:10

The greater realities of it, and the minut details of everything in it.

00:13:14 --> 00:13:17

You ask Allah by this encompassing knowledge,

00:13:19 --> 00:13:27

or Allah choose for me. You're asking Allah by means of His knowledge to choose for you whether to live or not.

00:13:28 --> 00:14:04

Whether life from this point on is better for you or not. And then there's another one called the latika Al Khalifa, not only that, you know, but you are able to give life and take life, because you are the only one who has this capacity. You can create and bring things into existence, and you can take things out of the realm of existence, only you can do that. So you're asked you by these two profound attributes to choose from me, if life from this point on is better for me than keep me in this life. But if it's not good for me,

00:14:05 --> 00:14:09

then don't keep me in it anymore. And that shows the believer

00:14:12 --> 00:14:21

draws value from life based on whether it's good or not. So life or a longer life is not necessarily better by default.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:31

So longer life is not necessarily a better thing. Unless

00:14:32 --> 00:14:44

it is written for you in the upcoming life in the remaining years of your life to do better. To do something that is pleasing to your Lord to make a good use of your life.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:50

Then this life becomes a blessing. But if you are meant

00:14:52 --> 00:15:00

to turn back on your heels, to commit crimes, to transgress the limits of Allah in the future life is better

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

If that Allah takes you out before you do that,

00:15:04 --> 00:15:12

and when he says, Get EMA Unlimited, hey, I only grant me life grant me more life Give me in this life.

00:15:13 --> 00:15:38

If your knowledge indicates that that's going to be good for me good, what does good here mean? We automatically think about what having a pleasant life an enjoyable life, a peaceful life, where I'm going to get what I covet and what I want. But a good life means good here is whether you are coming closer to Allah or not. That is what good really means.

00:15:41 --> 00:15:52

Good is what brings you closer to Allah, what takes you to Jannah that's the definition of good. It could be pleasant, but it could be challenging.

00:15:54 --> 00:15:56

It could be ease, but it could be hardship.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:19

So when you say oh Allah keep me in this life, if it's good for me, then that means if what remains is going to bring me closer to you, to love you and more, to obey you more, to devote myself to you more, to be loyal to you even more, to be truthful, more to be a source of good even more,

00:16:20 --> 00:16:22

keep me in this life.

00:16:23 --> 00:16:31

But if my future holds, something that is going to keep me away from you, make me tilt towards evil.

00:16:32 --> 00:16:35

Then take me away before that happens.

00:16:36 --> 00:16:43

And you asking Allah to choose for you. And that Subhanallah echoes the hadith of istikhara, the dura that when we ask Allah to choose for us,

00:16:46 --> 00:17:02

we say Oh Allah, for in Catalan, in that data in Nikita, Ireland, what after the Eurodollar Allah you know, but I don't know. And you are able, but I am unable, that's what you say into an istikhara by the two attributes, the same two attributes.

00:17:05 --> 00:17:20

So the person the true believing person doesn't necessarily seek life, regardless of how it is. Because the value of life is attached to one value. One criterion, whether it brings you closer to Allah

00:17:22 --> 00:17:27

or it pushes you away from the Mercy of Allah. Good is the first

00:17:28 --> 00:17:40

and evil is the second that's when the prophets have said themselves, then he says, was a Luca Shia takaful baby was shahada and I asked you, to grant me feel of you

00:17:42 --> 00:17:49

appreciation of your glory and greatness. So I do not act boldly against your limits.

00:17:51 --> 00:18:01

I know the boundaries and respect them in private and in public, because we tend to break the limits of Allah in private when no one sees us.

00:18:02 --> 00:18:11

But we also tend to break the limits of Allah subhanho wa Taala when we are in public, why because we want people's attention. We want their recognition.

00:18:14 --> 00:18:50

We want their validation. We want their attention. And that's against true fear on all of Allah subhanho wa taala. But a true believer is someone who knows their ultimate end, and they do things for the sake of Allah. The heart is attached to Allah, they know that no one can benefit them. If that benefit is not written by Allah. No one can harm them if that harm is not written by Allah. So they know that no one can offer them anything from themselves. They're just helpless creatures like everyone else, just like themselves. So they tend to Allah,

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

with their actions, with their intentions with the thoughts.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:07

They seek Allah subhanho wa Taala they live in the company of Allah, rather than enslaving themselves to people's approval, which is not befitting of a believer

00:19:09 --> 00:19:10

was limited.

00:19:12 --> 00:19:20

And I asked you to guide me to speak the truth and say that which is good in moments when I am angry when I lose my nerve,

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

or at times when I am in a pleasant state. Why because when we are in a negative state, we tend to give concessions to ourselves. We tend to

00:19:34 --> 00:19:40

allow our anger to allow ourselves to get carried away with our anger.

00:19:41 --> 00:19:56

And we are carried by the fire of anger where Shavon uses that to get us to violate the rights of ALLAH. So he says oh Allah guide me, whatever my state is to say that which is good and that's which is true.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:49

Whereas a local customer fill factory Well, Rena, and I asked her moderation in moments of lack or moment of abundance. Because again, humans when they are in a tight spot, they seek to act miserly. They don't want to spend the skirt because they say, I'm going to run out of that money and there's no one to provide for me, then you are not mindful of Allah that he's up was up that he is the provider. And when people have surplus money, they tend to act extravagantly squandering the money over spending on things that really are not going to bring them any value, but just the greed of the self. So he says, oh, Allah grant me moderation that I spend on what I need, is that money that is

00:20:49 --> 00:21:02

given to us the finances, the wealth that is given to us as a utility to help us cross the bridge of life to paradise. That's, that's it, it's not an end in itself. And we should treat it with purpose

00:21:04 --> 00:21:15

was a new kind of aim. And again, for then I asked you for a bliss and tranquility that never ends. Why? Because every blessing an every beautiful state ends.

00:21:16 --> 00:21:34

Right? So what is this bliss that never ends? It's in general, knowing that in this life, you get a pleasant state is going to come to an end there are ups and downs, but in general, there are no downs, that just pure good, pure, unadulterated, uninterrupted good, forever.

00:21:38 --> 00:21:57

What's Alucard odorata Iranian Latin copper and the cool coolness of my eye that never ceases to be and that's again in general is true and quality, the peace, the happiness, and it shows you what priorities are in this life. And what purpose is that leads our actions and our intentions

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

and our stuff for a long

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


00:22:11 --> 00:22:18

having to relearn your O'Brien I mean salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad, WA Ernie, he was heavy Ma. And what

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

he says was a Luca Reba,

00:22:23 --> 00:22:43

I asked you to give me contentment with your decree after it happens. And he specifically asks for it after it happens because that's when the real test is because oftentimes people say, you know, if Allah tries me with an illness with poverty, I'll be patient, I can deal with it. But when that happens, they find themselves impatient.

00:22:44 --> 00:22:58

They start having evil thoughts about their Creator and His wisdom. So he says, grant me contentment and understanding of your product after it has happened. So I'm content with it was a Luca

00:23:01 --> 00:23:07

bodyline, Shiva by the note and I asked you a pleasant life after death that's in the grave,

00:23:08 --> 00:23:09

and that's in the hereafter.

00:23:11 --> 00:23:22

Again, that comes as a present for both being loyal and truthful. And living a life of principle, a life of loyalty to your Creator, will you live upon truth

00:23:24 --> 00:23:25

and upon goodness

00:23:27 --> 00:24:10

was a local law that another Isla logic so he mentioned the pleasures the beauties, either in this life or in the next but then he speaks about the highest of all of them was allocated that nobody in our take. And I asked you to grant me this sweetness, the pleasure of seeing your face. That is the culmination that is the apex of the blessings that are being that are going to be given to the people in paradise. There's a hadith authentic Hadith from Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he said that when people of gender have intergender and people of the Hellfire are all in the hellfire and people in general are enjoying the blessings of Allah a call will go well and

00:24:10 --> 00:24:22

someone will say yeah, halogen Jana in hola como en de la Himawari Monterey then you read and Yun jisa como o people of Jana, Allah has a promise that he wants to fulfill that would say, an agenda.

00:24:23 --> 00:24:29

And let me go back in them in a nap. Then Allah interest agenda. He saved us from the hellfire.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:51

And then without killing my wife Zina did not he cause our scales to lean to that which is good. So what else fake she will hijab so Allah removes the veil that screens in from Allah for young Verona la he so they look at the face of Allah farmer to shake and a half by any means that IQ

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

and they would be given nothing deeper to their heart sweeter to their hearts than looking at the face of Allah their Creator.

00:25:01 --> 00:25:10

That's what Allah created all of us for. But many of us choose the pleasures of this life the petty pleasures of this life

00:25:13 --> 00:25:35

and give up on the most beautiful and most honorable gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala mucho Hoon Yama even now the law in our behind our villa, Allah says faces that are bright with health and well being. They will be looking at their Lord. The prophets, Allah Salam said inside a Muslim in a COMSATS

00:25:36 --> 00:25:43

Jana, you shall see your Lord directly without any kind of bill or screen.

00:25:45 --> 00:25:58

So that's the that's the highest pleasure of the people paradise then he asked for the highest pleasure of the people in this life was Shoka ileocolic. And I asked you the yearning to meeting you.

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

The highest pleasure in this life is the longing to meet Allah.

00:26:05 --> 00:26:07

Why because it's the heart

00:26:09 --> 00:26:12

missing Allah subhanaw taala seeking Him

00:26:13 --> 00:26:19

if you like theory, blah, blah, blah Well, if it nothing mobile make me arrive at this beauty without

00:26:21 --> 00:26:25

a calamity that would destroy me and without something that was misguide me.

00:26:29 --> 00:27:04

Because these things could be the barriers between you and Allah subhanaw taala Allah who has the you know the Xena to Eman which I know that they are Allah make us beautify us with a lamp is the real beauty is the beauty of your heart of the goodness in your heart. Not the external beauty. It's the real beauty the genuine beauty inside when you truly worship your Lord and remain truthful to him and make us guided in ourselves and a source of guidance to others. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us from those along with removing you know we want Mina to ever see me anonymously Matt alaria even

00:27:05 --> 00:27:52

Allama fildena will know by now why Salafi Emelina with a bit of dominance of an alto mid Catherine along with the Lenovo anyway the Dena well even when Elena Kinetica up him up I mean, I just caused with one thing we are in the month of shutdown. And the night that precedes the day of a 10th of Shaban is the night where Allah subhanaw taala looks at his servants and he forgives for all the believing servants except for those who commit shirk and those who have hatred, hatred to one another. That is not a legitimate form of disconnection in Islam. So purify your hearts, from hatred to your brothers and your sisters and seek the you know the blessings of Allah and the forgiveness

00:27:52 --> 00:28:01

of Allah subhanaw taala and increase in your fasting in preparation for Ramadan. Subhan Allah because I believe that Jana is one of Salaam and most of you know what we did in the Herald good Island
