We're still in the chapter kathrada broken higher, which is the abundance of the pathways to goodness.

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

Next Hadeeth is

00:00:56--> 00:01:45

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

So

00:01:50--> 00:01:55

one of the clans have an answer by no selima. They wanted to move

00:01:56--> 00:02:41

their their house or their houses or their area where they lived, was far from the masjid so they decided to move closer to the masjid when the profits losses I'm heard about this. He verified so he asked them are you do you intend to move closer to the master? They said yes, the profits or loss on them says, stay where you are. Stay where you are, your steps will be written. Your steps will be written another narration another wedding with a hadith with each step there will be you will gain a higher rank in Paradise and a higher rank in paradise. The point in this hadith is the prophet SAW some advice them they were living far from the masjid so when they came to the masjid, they had to

00:02:41--> 00:03:14

walk further distance than if they moved closer to the mustard. So the prophet SAW Selim, give them an advice to stay where they are far from the masjid because that would mean or that means that they would make more steps to the masjid because it's more distance. So that's the advice of the prophets all of a sudden again So the point here is the steps that you take to the masjid are a great source of reward or a great source of reward. Sometimes people say what about coming in by car?

00:03:16--> 00:03:38

Is it similar reward? Well, there is definitely a reward. There is definitely reward. If you live closer to the masjid it's always better to come walking. If you live close to the masjid where you can actually walk so it's better to walk there is more reward. But when you come driving inshallah you definitely get reward even based on the distance as well. Based on the distance

00:03:39--> 00:03:46

next Howdy, howdy. Howdy, Sharon. And Emily monger obey even though the Allahu anhu called can Roger on

00:03:48--> 00:04:24

the Alamo, logical admin and MSG the mean who are Canada todo sobre todo para la who over Kaltura Hulu is the Hema on top taco from Alma or from LA for Carla. So Ronnie and Amanda de la Jim bill mustard in New York to Bellingham shaiya Elon Musk did what he had to leave Apollo Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pajama, Allahu la caja de Kaku theory right in a matter of Ramadan. I will let Dr. Saba help us Surely, this hadith is reported by aubema capital they allow and said there was a man

00:04:25--> 00:04:29

and a woman a cap says I don't know anyone who lives further from the masjid than this man.

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

And

00:04:34--> 00:04:36

he never missed a prayer in the masjid.

00:04:37--> 00:04:45

So someone said to him, someone advised him if you buy a riding animal to make it easy for you.

00:04:48--> 00:04:58

That you can write it in doc instead of walking and in the heat of the sun as well. It makes it easier for you makes it quicker for you to come to the masjid. So the man says

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

He didn't seem to like the idea. And he said, I don't even wish that my house is closer to the mustard. I'm happy that my mustard is farther from the mustard. Or my house is farther from the mustard.

00:05:13--> 00:05:37

He says I want a low I want my steps to the masjid to be written for me and I want my steps back to my house to be written for me. The prophets of Solomon he heard about this, he said, Allah has given you all of this. Allah has given you all of this. And other narration says if you seek if you keep seeking the reward from Allah subhanaw taala will give you that if so, if you do this for the sake of Allah, Allah will give you the reward of all of this

00:05:38--> 00:05:59

next Thursday when I show on an IV, Mohammed Abdullah, Mohammed Ali Allahu, and oh my god, all of a sudden life's a little longer and he was telling him about when a hustler and how many how to Lance Mammon army, Jamar will be hustling minha Raja Sabha what is the karma Buddha? Allah Allahu bilgin

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

Buhari and many annual to yahaya Khurana de la. This had it is from Abdullah Abdullah house

00:06:10--> 00:06:15

will be aloha Nana. He said, Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

4040

00:06:22--> 00:06:29

simple acts of deeds, good deeds, part of good character simple 40 deeds,

00:06:30--> 00:07:00

the most difficult of them. And the most burdensome of them is, and this is something that Arabs used to used to do when they saw a person who was poor, sometimes I didn't have enough money to give that person to help them out. So I had some goats, I would give him one of my goats, as a trustee keeps it with him for a few time for a few days or for a few weeks or a few months. And he uses the milk that this goat gives to sustain himself to provide for himself and his family.

00:07:02--> 00:07:21

Then he gives it back to me. So that was very common among the Arabs, a way of helping each other. So the prophet SAW sent me he says 40, simple deeds, the most difficult of them is that you give your go to your sheep, you lend it to a friend or to someone who's in need, so they use it or they use the milk, its milk for some time, then they give it back to you.

00:07:23--> 00:07:40

So that's the most difficult so you can imagine the other ones are much more simple. The prophet SAW Selim, anyone who does any of these deeds, hoping for reward from Allah subhanaw taala. And believing that Allah will reward for that, then Allah will enter him into paradise because of this.

00:07:41--> 00:07:49

So the point in the Hadith is any simple app that you do, in which there is benefit to people in which there is help to people and in which there is support

00:07:50--> 00:07:57

to people. And that's a great act of worship. But if you do it seeking Allah reward, Allah will allow you into paradise because of us.

00:07:59--> 00:08:10

Next, how do you think the third one is Sharon and Eddie even had him and who and who called symmetrel nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may have bought it, the owner will be shocked at Mara. I'd even heard him

00:08:11--> 00:08:19

said, I heard the Prophet solo send them say, protect yourself from the Hellfire even if it fits with half dates.

00:08:20--> 00:08:30

You know the one date tomorrow, one of these half of it. If you can protect yourself with that, do it. And that means if you have one date,

00:08:31--> 00:09:14

and you see someone in need, you split it and you give him half and you keep half for yourself. That's what it means. This could protect you from the Hellfire, a simple deed like this could protect you from the hellfire. So it could be $1 that you give away for the sake of our loss penalty. As simple as that can be a dime that you give for the sake of a loss. It could protect you from the hellfire. Again, this reminds us of the Hadith that we mentioned previously, which is that they are nominal Morrow fish I don't ever belittle. Don't ever undermine the power and the potential of any simple good deed and a simple good deed it could be the it could be the thing that will save

00:09:14--> 00:09:30

you from the hellfire. It could be the reason for you to enter Paradise and you don't know. Because sometimes there are people that will there will will come a point in the day on the Day of Judgment where these people their good deeds will be will equal their bad deeds.

00:09:32--> 00:09:33

And these are

00:09:34--> 00:09:38

these people will stand in the middle between paradise and the Hellfire for a while

00:09:40--> 00:09:44

because there are good records matched their bad records.

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

But there are people who will make it to paradise who were pretty much similar in a similar situation. But these people their good deeds were were just a little bit more by a fraction. Maybe it's one good day maybe it's a smile

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

So it managed to get the good deeds to be greater than the bad deeds. So these people entered into paradise instead of being stuck in the middle and another person because of an evil deed, a bad deed, it made their evil deeds outweigh their good deeds. So they had to go to the hellfire. Sometimes, it could, you know,

00:10:20--> 00:10:32

it could be dependent or could like you're entering paradise can stand on one thing one simple thing as simple as half a date, as simple as a smile, as simple as a good word and so on and so forth.

00:10:33--> 00:10:50

So this is connected by Al Bukhari and Muslim and in another narration as well in the wording this Hadeeth allows messages or sentences, ma'am in common had in India so you can remember a bow a Sabina Bina Who told you man, for yanbu a man I mean who Farah Illa

00:10:52--> 00:11:04

Allah Allah Allah mapa de Muro, Bina de la, knowledge, our G factor coonara will be shipped a camera, family limited FBI Kelly Martin Paiva Alice messengers says,

00:11:05--> 00:11:09

each one of you, each one of you, will be

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

will speak to Allah directly allowed to speak to you directly allowed to speak to you directly without a translator without a mediator in the middle.

00:11:23--> 00:11:42

So you will look to your right you will only see your deeds. You will look to the left you will only see your deeds that's the hisab that's what Allah holds you to account. So you will stand before Allah and you will speak with him directly He will speak with you directly. So you look at the right you see your deeds you look at the left you will see only your deeds

00:11:43--> 00:11:46

and you will see what's ahead of you and it's only the hellfire.

00:11:48--> 00:12:03

So one of the Hellfire so the prophet SAW Selim says so save yourself from the Hellfire even if it be by half a date. And for those who do not find something to give even if it's half a date, then with a good word, a nice word Kadima.

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

Next Hadith, Eduardo with Sharon and uninstall the Godfather Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Allah, Allah Allah.

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

Allah Allah.

00:12:16--> 00:12:24

Allah, we shall better for your mother who Allah wa Muslim, will atleta Hamza will ash one

00:12:25--> 00:12:39

from anisopliae Lau Allah's Messenger sallallahu Sallam says, that Allah, Allah will be pleased with the servant will be pleased with a Muslim, if they eat a meal, and they thank Allah for it, that's what I want from you.

00:12:41--> 00:12:42

That Allah would be happy with you.

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

So it's not much that Allah is asking for

00:12:47--> 00:13:18

from us. So our last one was Allah says that Allah is pleased with the servant, that he eats his meal, and he thanks for it. Or that he drinks something, and he thanks for it. That's what Allah wants from you. That's it, as simple as that. So a lot would be pleased with that. Because a lot once thankfulness wants to see thankfulness from us, so you can see again, how Islam is all about our daily routines can only be to all be turned into acts of worship.

00:13:19--> 00:13:42

As long as you're doing things from a good heart, you're doing the right things, and you're behaving ethically, almost almost everything you do, could be written for you as a good deed. Islam is so simple, so easy. And not only that is so natural. It is so natural. You don't have to manufacture things. You don't have to fake things.

00:13:43--> 00:13:52

It's simple. Whatever you do as a human being could be an act that allows you into paradise. As simple as that and a law counts it for you as a good deed.

00:13:54--> 00:13:55

Next, Heidi humps with Sharon

00:13:57--> 00:14:01

and Abby most notably Alo and Han Solo and he was setting them up God.

00:14:02--> 00:14:07

Allah Cooley Muslim and sadhaka Allah Allah at Kalia maluhia de

00:14:09--> 00:14:15

de la eight and let me stop there. Either you're in or the hydrothermal hoof. Alright. Alright. And let me start

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

with a higher

00:14:19--> 00:14:22

volume sequence sharifah in Asada

00:14:24--> 00:14:38

is connected by a Muslim, one of the previous edits similar to that where it says Allah His Messenger Salaam says, upon every Muslim there is sadaqa you have to give charity, there's something you have to give something good you have to do

00:14:39--> 00:14:42

in order to, you know,

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

in return or in exchange of what Allah has given you.

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

So someone asked him what if the person doesn't find any wealth, any money to give out in charity to give him some data, the profits on him says, Let him go and find a job or let him do any kind of work.

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

Get some money, get some money, where he benefits himself and he gives up from that as well.

00:15:07--> 00:15:19

So the question asked, What if he's unable to What if he's unable to work? The prophet SAW Selim says, you find someone who needs help, physical help or any kind of help, and you give them a hand.

00:15:21--> 00:15:32

So the person asked what if he is unable even to do this? The prophet SAW Selim says, Yeah, model William Adolphe, I will hire, he advises people or commands people to do good, you find someone give him advice.

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

That's so.

00:15:35--> 00:16:09

So the person has said, What if he doesn't do this, the province on him says, Let him hold back anything harmful from him, this will be considered to be something this will be considered. So don't harm people. Something as passive as not doing anything. If you do it with the intention that I don't want to harm people, whether physically, emotionally or even verbally, I don't want to do this on a hold back my hand from people this is will be written for you a solid version for you. So that's the end of this chapter. But I would just want to make some comments on this chapter.

00:16:11--> 00:16:37

Oftentimes, we make Islam complicated. We make it difficult. There are you'll find groups that will say you will not be a Muslim, you will not enter Paradise or you guys are sinning, unless you join us in what we do. And I said, Would you join us, in our party in our group in our denomination, and you do what we do otherwise, you're not doing good Islam.

00:16:39--> 00:16:45

If anyone says this to you automatically, register that as fishy and dodgy.

00:16:46--> 00:17:14

fishy and dodgy in Islam. You don't have to belong to a group, you're not supposed to belong to any group. You're not supposed to subscribe to any group or any name, apart from Muslims upon the son of the prophet SAW center. Nothing else. We don't need to be part of a group. You don't need to be part of a party. You don't need to join forces, with certain groups with certain agenda, certain titles, certain names, certain subscriptions and so on and so forth. None of this. None of this in Islam.

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

Your covenant is with Allah subhana wa tada is with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:22--> 00:17:35

You can see that as long as you do the obligations upon you pray the five daily prayers you fast Ramadan, he gives a care if you have to give him a cup, and you perform Hajj when you do and you believe that Allah is the only one who has the right to be worshipped.

00:17:37--> 00:17:38

That's what you have to do as a Muslim.

00:17:39--> 00:17:47

That's what you have to do as a Muslim. A person came a bedroom came and asked the prophet SAW Solomon, he said, O Messenger of Allah, He says what is upon me?

00:17:49--> 00:18:27

He says, you bear witness that man has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am the messenger of Allah. He says, I do this already. You said What else? It is you five five daily prayers. You pay them on time. He says, I'll do this, what else? He says you first Ramadan. He says I will first Ramadan What else? He says you paisa if you have to pay zakat, if your money reaches the nisab he says I'll do this. He says what else he says you make Hajj to the house of Allah Spanner to add up if you're able to do this, anything else? He says that's the obligations upon you. That's what the president says. That's all you have to do. He says, well, law healer azido Allah

00:18:27--> 00:18:40

that He says, By Allah, I will never do anything more than this. But once had the sharp, rough nature. So he said to the prophet and send him I'll do this, and that will not do anything. On top of this, I'll do nothing extra.

00:18:42--> 00:18:52

When the man left, the prophet SAW salam, upon the man leaving he said to the companions, a flat in sadhak. This man will be successful if he's truthful to his word,

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

if he's truthful to his word.

00:18:57--> 00:19:07

So that's what we have to do as Muslims. But here we see in these Hadith, every simple thing, every daily thing that you do, you could be rewarded for it.

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

And we mentioned as in the Hadith, you give someone advice, that's sadhak

00:19:13--> 00:19:47

you give someone charity that's sadaqa you give someone a smile that sadaqa will carry metal p but a nice word, you give it to someone that's sadaqa does charity does that an act of worship? And we said someone approaches their wife intimately. The prophet SAW them says there will be written for them as sadaqa and the companions said, O Messenger of Allah, someone like answers and fulfills their desire and they get reward for that the professor said yes, because if they do it and how long it will be considered sin, they do it and it is considered to be a good deed. So almost anything you do in Islam, as long as it's ethical, and good, inherently good.

00:19:48--> 00:20:00

It will be written for you as a good deed. And that's how Islam is so vast Islam is so natural. some some some people make Islam sound as a as a robotic kind of thing that you have to give up.

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

Pure humanity and start to live an awkward way of life.

00:20:04--> 00:20:36

That's not waste time tells us to do. Islam says you need to live as a human being. And what completes you as a human being is that you worship Allah subhanaw taala. And you do everything in love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So don't complicate Islam. Make it simple. Make it simple. If you want to exert yourself more in worship, you want to do play, emulate, you want to seek knowledge, you want to do extra things for you know, you want to volunteer and so fine, that's your personal choice. But don't look down upon others who don't do that.

00:20:37--> 00:20:55

Don't look down upon others, don't see yourself better than them. Don't say them, you're you're depriving yourself some set from such a great reward. You have chosen something for yourself extra to do, go ahead and do it, by all means, enjoy it, and May Allah reward you for it. But don't start judging other people because they don't do what you do.

00:20:56--> 00:21:00

Or because they don't do as much as you do. You don't know what's between them and Allah.

00:21:01--> 00:21:20

You don't know what's between them and Allah, because some people are hidden. Some great worshipers of Allah are hidden. Some people seek forgiveness from Allah so many times and remember Allah all day and no one knows about them. They look like everyone else. And you might look at them and they say, you say might say I'm more religious than they are.

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

But the there are people who have a lot of worship that we don't know about. Some people have a pure heart. They don't know they don't do much acts of worship, they just have a pure heart. They have no hate to no one.

00:21:35--> 00:21:45

And they love Allah subhanaw taala. And they have no intention to hold no grudge against anyone. They have no intention to harm anyone. These people might be in the highest ranks in Paradise,

00:21:46--> 00:22:11

in the highest ranks in Paradise, because that's what allow one's pure heart. That's what Islam is. That's what Islam truly is. When we turn Islam come completely into mere rituals, mere rituals, and we lose our humanity trying to behave in certain ways that are not necessarily from Islam, but just they are the work of some people's minds and imagination.

00:22:13--> 00:22:26

Islam is so simple, so straightforward. Islam is about living this life fully. It's about living this life. ethically. It's about doing the right things and the good things in this life. That's what it is. And what I've noticed as he is literally a law known

00:22:27--> 00:22:31

as he witnessed some of the companions of the Prophet saucer, he says

00:22:33--> 00:22:46

can a Center for Law your own labor that advocate for solidarity what a cm wanted a better in American yellow una la vida fi hurstville Hello

00:22:49--> 00:23:17

I'm Robin Abdulaziz. Rahim Allah, Allah, the great halifa. He said, the self the companions of the prophets I send them they used to see worship, not in so much prayers, and not in so much fast. But they used to see worship is in good character. And in holding back home from people being harmless to others. That's how they saw worship. That's how they understood worship.

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

One of the tabs in says

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

Massa Bachmann sybok Nicola TCM and asala Well, I can say vaca can be host Nicola Lee, they said the people who exceeded you the people who surprised you, the people who did better than you in the sight of Allah, they didn't do this because of Moore's law and Matsuyama more acts of worship, they did this because they had better character.

00:23:44--> 00:23:54

So this thing was very common was very clear among the early generations. But somehow, it became, you know, side tracked and was pushed to the side, unfortunately,

00:23:55--> 00:24:08

we move on to a new chapter. Babel if decide if a bar Babel Alif decidi, Fatah. And this chapter is about being moderate in worship,

00:24:09--> 00:24:12

being moderate in worship again,

00:24:13--> 00:24:20

it seems that it seems a mammoth no mo law when he wrote these two chapters, he was aware of some things that are also taking place today.

00:24:22--> 00:24:37

People think worship is about being pushing yourself too much being excessive. Now we will see from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So it's been Babel if decide if a bar means being moderate, or facade, B is economy,

00:24:38--> 00:24:50

being economy. So that means that you when you do a facade in your spendings, that means you're very careful with your spending so you don't spend too much.

00:24:51--> 00:24:58

And he's using here the same word act Assad in worship, so you don't go into excess when your worship

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

That sounds counterintuitive right? Oh we should do more and more and more and more and more. But here they are. This is gonna show a lot create a beautiful context a last minute Allah says Allah Allah subhana wa

00:25:11--> 00:25:43

Alaykum Khurana Latasha mocha Allah tala Yuri de la Hobi como nuestra What are you read ob como hacer las metalla says baja manzanilla kripalani Tasha we have not sent down upon you to hold on to make it hard for you to make it difficult for you. The Quran was not sent to put difficulty on you know, by the way, Baja is not the name of the prophet SAW center. Some people think baja is the name No, Baja is like Alif Lam Meem two letters ba and

00:25:46--> 00:26:33

it's not the name of the Prophet source and it's fragmented letters like Alif Lam meme, like Han meme, like yeah, scene yes scene is not the name of the prophets are seldom. It's two separate letters. Okay, two separate letters, humming calf hair, yeah, I inside. And if I mean Alif Lam Meem sod Alif Lam me Ma, ba. These are separate letters. These are names of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So, next verse, Allah to Allah you read along. Be como use la Vela you read to be commercial allowance is for you. He doesn't want to touch it. Allah doesn't want to place you under hardship. First Hadith and shuttle the Allahu Allah and then they'll be your sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:26:33--> 00:26:36

Hulu huduma to play on a da da da da Matta Baba Hola, como la hora de. Okay, Chateau de la and that reports that unless messengers are lumped into their house one day, and she had a woman a visitor

00:27:21--> 00:27:49

was one woman was visiting her. So the prophets of Salaam asked Ayesha, who's this woman. She said, she has such and such falana her name. And she prays and praise and praise. She started mentioning how much this woman prays. She prays so much, and he was happy with this, that she prays a lot of records during the day during the night. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Ma Ma is a word in Arabic expression in Arabic. That means that's not right.

00:27:51--> 00:27:54

That's what the prophets have said. And this hadith is reported by Bukhari Muslim

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

said, Man,

00:27:57--> 00:27:58

that's wrong.

00:27:59--> 00:28:01

No, don't do this. That's what it means.

00:28:02--> 00:28:10

He says la combi motto to own do what you are able to do what you are comfortable with doing from the worship.

00:28:11--> 00:28:14

Do what you can do, don't push yourself so much.

00:28:16--> 00:28:32

For will la la amandla la heteroatom Allah, Allah will never get bored of your worship unless you get bored. That means you should do the worship until you get to a point where you stopped when you don't feel it anymore. Sometimes you don't feel it, and you keep doing it. But you're not feeling it.

00:28:33--> 00:28:42

That means you have reached your limits. Stop by that limit is why the President is saying law will not get bored from your worship unless until you guys get bored.

00:28:46--> 00:28:52

Mmm, no, he explains this. And he says, There is no law that Allah subhanaw taala

00:28:53--> 00:28:59

will keep giving you a reward for your deeds. Whatever you do, Allah will keep giving you reward.

00:29:02--> 00:29:04

And Allah will only

00:29:07--> 00:29:22

be bored of your worship and they will not like receive your your worship gracefully. When you do it, without feeling it without hearts. And that's when you get bored. That's when you push yourself beyond your limit where you don't feel it anymore.

00:29:23--> 00:29:49

So remember, he says, so you have to what you have to do is do something you are able to sustain do little that you are able to sustain they're able to do all the time. And allow will give you a reward for that and don't push. Don't overburden yourself. Don't push yourself beyond the limits because you're unable to sustain. There will be other ideas that will come and will shala create a more complete context and explain this. Then.

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

At the end of this Howdy. There's a statement here. We can have Bodine Hema de la masahito. It seems this is a statement from shall be allowed and the prophets are sending

00:30:00--> 00:30:29

them, the best worship the best Dean that he loves, is what you could sustain and do continuously. Because when you push yourself you can't sustain worship, you can't sustain worship too much. Do what you can sustain to Raka you can keep up with that on a daily basis do that. Six workers you're going to do it on an off and you're going to get tired you're going to get bored. Then you will do it one day two days you leave it and so on and so forth. No stick to rock to rock and do it on a daily basis. A lot of this morning,

Nisa from embroidery baton suniti. Felice me name aka con la collected by Bukhari and Muslim. Three people came to the house of the Prophet sauce and then they asked about his worship they wanted to do his daily routine. What does the prophets of Salaam do on a daily basis? How much does he worship? How much does he pray? How often does he fast What does he do and so on and so forth. So when they were told about the daily routine of the prophet SAW Selim Kanda home Taka Aloha, they saw that it's little, it's not much, there's not much the prophesy. Salam seems to be doing. So they said. So that's the rationale. The Prophet ozanam has got his sins forgiven, right. But we need our

00:31:47--> 00:31:55

sins to be forgiven. So we shouldn't compare ourselves to the prophets of Salaam because his sins are forgiven ours or not, we should do more. That was the rationale.

00:31:56--> 00:32:21

So one of them said, I pray all night and never go to sleep. Every night I pray all night and don't go to sleep. The second person said ice I fast every day. Every day consecutively. I'll keep faster and faster and faster every day, day in and day out. The third person said I don't marry women. I don't. I don't do I don't get into intimate relationships. That's it. I don't marry.

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

I'm going to live like this as a hermit.

00:32:25--> 00:32:26

When the prophets of Salaam

00:32:27--> 00:32:49

was told about this, he approached them he came to them and he said you said such and such they said yes. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, I am the one who fears Allah the Most among all of you. And I am the one who has taqwa to Allah, Most among all of you. I fast some days and I break my fast other days.

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

I pray sometimes at night and that some nights I don't pray all night.

00:32:56--> 00:32:57

And I marry.

00:32:59--> 00:33:04

He says whoever seeks or chooses other than my sooner than he is not from me, and I'm not from him.

00:33:06--> 00:33:26

What were these people doing worship? The prophet SAW some of them, threatened them, criticize them, and he said, That's not my son. Why these people were praying all night, fasting old days, not marrying, I want to be more righteous. That's not the way of the prophet SAW center. Again. Next Hadith. Anybody must

Remember no explains maternal maternal maternal own. They are the ones who do more than they are required to do or they are very edgy when it comes to issues of religion.

00:34:17--> 00:34:20

An example of Montana an example of Montana

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

is

00:34:24--> 00:34:49

when we saw when a lot one more Salli Salam. He said in the La Jolla model commandez bajo Baqarah Allah commands you to slaughter a cow. Why? Because a person was murdered. And the last one time I said if you slaughter a cow and you take one piece of it and you hit the dead person with that piece, Allah will make that dead person speak until the person who murdered him

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

so they said are you ridiculing us you making fun of us? That's what they said. Allah made it simple command slaughter a cow.

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

Do what I told you to do, and you will get to know the murderer.

00:35:04--> 00:35:05

They said, Oh, you're making fun of us.

00:35:07--> 00:35:48

So that that was their first response. Second response. Most of them said, No, I'm not making fun of you. They said, Okay, so ask your Lord to tell us give us more description. What is this cow like? Allah says a cow, a cow. This is why the prophets of Salaam said if they slaughtered any cow would have done the job. But they said, Oh which cow describe it to us? So Allah subhanaw taala made a description that narrowed down their choices now they have less choices among cows. They weren't even satisfied with this. So they said, Tell the Lord to tell us or describe its color. What color is the cow? So Allah Allah made it even more difficult and he narrowed down the choices and he said

00:35:48--> 00:35:52

so far it's it's yellow Falcon low, not very strong color yellow color.

00:35:53--> 00:36:08

Then they were not satisfied. Get EU law to describe it more even more in more detail more specific. If they started any care I would have done but allow me to difficult for them because they made it difficult. They asked questions that we're not supposed to ask. Allah said slaughter a cow. That's it.

00:36:09--> 00:36:18

That's it. So then last month, I made another description that made it extremely difficult. They had to buy a very expensive cow is a very rare cow.

00:36:20--> 00:36:25

And then it did the job. So that's an example of going to extremes or maternal prion

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

among Muslims, Allah subhanaw taala says

00:36:31--> 00:36:40

Mikado Makoto, you make odo you go and wash your hands three times now I'm going to get make it five times why to be sure. To be sure.

00:36:43--> 00:37:07

For example, Allah subhanaw taala says if you are sick, if you are ill, or if you are traveling, you're exempt from fasting, you can make it up later on. You say no, I want to fast are more righteous. I want to fast. But like I said, you can break your fast. No, no, I want to fast. And if you see someone who is sick, and you and you see them eating, you say Ramadan, yes, but I am sick.

00:37:08--> 00:37:11

Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, this person doesn't have enough taqwa.

00:37:12--> 00:37:26

You should fast, that shows more inner. That's what tonnato is. That's what extremism is something similar as well. Like, you see someone who's doing something wrong in the street, you don't have power over them.

00:37:27--> 00:37:52

You don't have power over them. You try to force your opinion upon them. Or even if it's true, like they're doing a sin, but you have to you try to force it on them. They are they are not under your authority, all you can do is if you want to give them advice, give them advice. Accept the accepted find. They don't accept it. That's it, but you stop them by force. You can't do this. The the, you know, last year there was

00:37:53--> 00:38:17

this phenomenon appeared by some young Muslims, zealous young Muslims who were affected by some extremism. And by some dodgy methodologies. In the UK, in certain areas, they were making religious police. If they see a couple, you know, working together, and they're holding each other's hands, Muslims or non Muslim, they go to them, they say, listen, in Islam, this is around

00:38:19--> 00:38:21

this Let go of her hand.

00:38:23--> 00:38:42

And they used to harass people in the streets. And this caused a lot of turmoil against Muslims, against Muslims. Who said you can do this? That's tonnato. That's extremism. That's extremism. So you have to be careful, will allow mate How long is how long the ultimate holiday is Helen will allow me to know is sooner.

00:38:43--> 00:38:53

But you want to make the sooner obligation. You want to cancel the exemptions and say, oh, that shows your, your water you water down your religion.

00:38:54--> 00:39:05

Or if you see someone has a mistake, you say, Oh, he's off religion, or he's got mistakes. And he's this and he's that you start slandering people. That's all extremism. That's all extremism.

00:39:06--> 00:39:27

So the problem Selim says helicon, Matata only the ones who go to extremes. And they take things in an edgy fashion and Islam, may they be destroyed, or the meaning of it could be they are destroyed, and they are indeed destroyed. And we have a lot of extremism. You see it done in the name of Islam. And the problem is, it's now being used

00:39:28--> 00:39:37

by people who don't want good for Islam. They're using Muslim youth, Muslim youth who have passion, they using them

00:39:38--> 00:39:46

through these movements through these groups, okay, extreme groups in order to destroy the image of Islam.

00:39:48--> 00:40:00

So there are people pulling the strings behind the scenes, and they are using all of these they use the Muslim spirit dispassion because they know when someone is young and they are zealous and they want to do something

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

Islam and they don't have the knowledge. It's easy to get them to do extremes. It's easy for someone to sacrifice their life thinking when they kill innocent people, or that's jihad, jihad in this. What is jihad in this? In Islam, you're not even allowed to kill a bird. If you're not going to eat it.

00:40:18--> 00:40:21

If you're not going to consume it, you're not allowed. It's held on for you to kill a bird.

00:40:23--> 00:40:25

And then killing innocent people is part of Islam.

00:40:27--> 00:40:29

That's what that's what extremism takes people.

00:40:32--> 00:40:43

And we have a lot of people as well some people want you to dress up like they dress. Some people want you to dress up like your dress. I know some people go to the brothers in the midst of they say, brother, your Salah, wearing the pants is haram.

00:40:44--> 00:40:50

Now you want to wear this, this is an Arab dress. This is not an Islamic dress. By the way. This is an Arab thing.

00:40:52--> 00:40:57

You should while as well is a Pakistani Indian thing. There is a an African dress as well.

00:40:58--> 00:41:04

This is an Arab thing. By the way, a coffee as well is an Arab African.

00:41:05--> 00:41:43

They see culture, it's not everywhere. If someone prays without a cap. There's nothing wrong with that. The President played with a cap because the cap was the norm of the Arabs, how the Arab dress the proscenium was like the Arabs. So someone prays without a cap without a Koofi. There's nothing wrong with it. Some people say no, no, you have to wear a cap. No, that's an Arab thing. That's a cultural thing. There is nothing called Islamic Dress By the way, there's no Islamic dress. There are certain parameters for what is a decent clothing in Islam. For men, I'm talking about men, even women, there's not a specific dress, there are conditions, these conditions conditions are met. Then

00:41:43--> 00:42:11

there is no specific dress. I can tell you. This is Islamic. This is Arab. This is an Arab Arab way of dressing. There's another way of dressing. If your pants are not so tight, like these tights are like yoga pants. If they are tight, and they have some space, and they don't show the skin the color of your skin. You can pray with them. There's nothing wrong with that. So let's not go to extremes all these extremes are problematic. And the province of them warned against them.

00:42:13--> 00:42:15

Is it time you're hungry?

00:42:18--> 00:42:43

Am I going to an extreme no problem and Selma? Okay, does that come? Okay, we'll carry on I find this chapter to be very interesting and relevant. Our times Baraka lo fi como sallallahu, wasallam have been hammered. While you're so happy. Enjoy your talk. By the way, one of our brothers who regularly prays here, Brother Mohammed, the brother from Ethiopia, senior one of our senior brothers. I think he had a surgery today. So maybe drought for him. may drive and butter coffee.
