In the Shangri La Hina model who want to start you want to still feel when are all the bIllahi min shallowly and phocoena. We'll see RTR Marlena Johan de la la mobila. When may you'd leave her her the, what should what Allah Allah Allah Allah what the hula sharika lahu eyeshadow, Allah, Muhammad and Abdullah who was all
about when I was little Hadith the Kitab Allah had you had your Muhammad Sallallahu Ali who were early he was a lump, or Tshabalala Ohmori Mahathir to have a meeting with Wakulla, Buddha and dadada.
Last week, we said we will go over some chapters from real solid here. And the reason we chose those specific chapters was that during Ramadan, we dealt with some of the Hadith in there, but we had to go quickly because of the nature of the Halacha and Ramadan which was and for mothering. But we wanted to go in more depth because these issues pertain to how we worship Allah on a day to day basis. So it shows how practical these Hadith show how practical Islam is, that it's not a technical way of life.
On the contrary, it's more of an organic approach to life. And we're in everything that you do in your daily life. You could find opportunities to worship Allah subhanahu wa taala. But the point there is to have pure intention and to have be mindful of Allah subhanaw taala
so we reached the Hadith
which is, I believe from above, right or the Allahu Anhu.
Alcala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O Allah wa salatu salam and Eman will build one was a balloon I will build one was to visit to Nashua of Baja kulula ilaha illallah, WA, Edina Mr. Patil at the annual Tory of will here who showed the tune mineral Eman motiva con la la boda I
mean Salah mental artigiani la just because Reba what was sugar Alka
this hadith is collected by Bukhari and Muslim from Abu Huraira, the Allahu Anhu that the prophets of salaam said, Al Iman, Iman, which is faith, belief, is all consists of 70 plus branches, or pieces.
And, and he says all in the same Hadith, or six plus branches, so the number is not necessary. I mean, it's not the point here, the number is 60, or 70. But these are and this is something about the Arabs that are abused when they want to mention or show a plentiful, kind of, or numerous things, they usually use 60 or 70. Stone was a boon, they usually do this until today, we'll find this in the Arabic culture, they say I've been doing this for 60 years, or I've known this for 70 years, and so on and so forth. Even in other cultures, you have these two numbers being mentioned 60 and 7060, and 70. So this is why they're sometimes you will find the same Hadith like this one, some
narration is mentioned. That is 70 plus some of the mentioned that 60 plus, so which one is accurate? It could the person could have said both of them. And since both of them had a Muslim, I'm mentioning this hadith, and in the same body, the same text of the Hadith. In the matter of the Hadith they mentioned 70 Plus or 60 plus that means they've heard both from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So Iman is 70 plus or 60 Plus branches or pieces, as you may know explains here shorba means pieces, or segments for of mental health Hola, Ilaha illa Allah the best of them which is the highest is to say La Ilaha illa Allah and we know like we have to see things in their full context. Say that Allah it's not your say it with your tongue only.
It's not you say it with your tongue only. That means it's in your heart and you are expressing the Oneness of Allah that you have in your heart that your head of Allah that you have knew how to express and get through your tongue. That's what Allah Allah means when you say La ilaha IL Allah
will add an image that will either Anatolia and the lowest of them. Or the slightest may be or the one of least weight is removed something harmful from people's way from, from somebody somebody's puff. As simple as something dirty, something harmful you remove it. So that's also part of iman that's part of iman will higher or shorter by two minute Iman and bashfulness
a sense of decency is part of human.
And here this kind of shyness beautiful shyness is part of humans is one of the branches or one of the segments of human that shows a man as Alison, I believe, is belief in the heart at the garden Virgina. I wouldn't be listen and speech with the tongue when I'm alone will outcome and actions with our physic physical actions with our limps. That's what a man consists of. That's what Eman consists of. There are some deviant sects that emerged in the Muslim history that claimed that Eman is only knowledge in the heart. It's only the knowledge of the heart but honestly I believe no Eman consists of what's in the heart, what's on the tongue and what you do with your actions. So Eman is
a TR don't walk alone wireman. It's a belief in the heart speech with the tongue and action with the limbs. That's what a man is. That's what I'll do the Sunnah have an Iijima have a consensus upon you have the more Jaya for example. The more they believe a man is a test there
is just knowledge, you know something is true for them. That's what a man is. So this is why in the speed in the rhetoric of the Moto G how you will find they consider a bliss to be more human to have Iman, why because he knows Allah is there. And he knows Allah is the Creator of the heavens and the earth and he knows Allah deserves all worship. He knows this.
But according to the Sunnah know this knowledge in the heart? It has to be combined with more things in the hut and it has to shorten the tongue and has to show on the actions that's what you man is the point here. Why did Imam know we mentioned this
hadith in this chapter is to show that a man consists of so many things. Don't think Eman is only salah. Or Eman is only the knowledge that you will learn. All of these are part of human but part of Eman also is simple things that human beings do, like removing anything harmful harmful from people's way. That's part of human also personal attitudes are part of human. So what's that? What's bashfulness? What's higher?
What is the sense of decency? It's an attitude. It's a personal trait. It's also part of iman to show you that Eman is a human concept. It's something that covers our experience as humans it's not only something simple in the Quran, you will find a lost planet Allah says so to boycott a woman can Allah Julio Leah Eman accom. And Allah was never to let your Eman go to waste. What is the meaning of iman there? It talks about salah talks about the prayer because Allah is talking about changing the Qibla from beta Democritus from vegetal Aqsa to al Qaeda
when it was changed, because some companions said but we've been praying to almost previously What about these prayers? Are they like are they gonna go to waste? Or we have Muslims who prayed only to unmask lochsa And they passed away before changing the problem?
Is their prayer valid? So Allah Subhana Allah revealed one can Allah who the Obeah Imana Kamala will never let your Eman go to a so the scholars of Tafseer have a consensus that Eman here means your actions, which is your Salah, means your act of Salah offering Salah.
So that shows that Eman is not only what see as technical things. Eman consists of the simple acts of kindness that you do you remove harm from people's way.
You have a sense of care towards others. A sense of forgiving self towards others that's part of iman is just like shyness and bashfulness like HIA so anything good in the human experience anything that is essentially good in the human experience and it's in line with the Quran and the Sunnah the principles of Islam is automatically part and parcel of Islam you cannot remove it. You cannot remove it It's part and parcel of Islam.
Let's move on to the next Hadith.
Allah Asha rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a call
or we actually explained this hadith we explained this hadith but I skipped the Hadith that we mentioned. So we move on to the next one. And had the actual unwanted Nabi SallAllahu when he was setting them up on La Kudrow a to La Jolla, Anita Lebu Phil Jana Fisher gelatin kappa hang and Tarik Khanna took the Muslim in Rolla who Muslim

Again, there are three narrations or three wordings of the same Hadith.
Two of them two of these weddings were narrated by Muslim, a third one was reported by or collected by both Bukhari and Muslim, that a man that the prophets of salaam saw a man in paradise, saw a man in Paradise from this Oma. And this man was enjoying everything in Ghana, was enjoying it fully. So he was living a beautiful life in Ghana. And we know that Allah Subhana Allah revealed Jana to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so he saw who was in it, as the promiseland said to be learned, look at Samento per Takata Natalie kephale Jana out of pocket and Alec Jana Ross, I'm sad to be that I heard your steps in Jana. But we don't we're still in this dunya but Allah revealed that for the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it will be for the purpose of the Senate. And the problem. So some people in the Hellfire bienick being tortured certain types of tortures, right. And he asked him, What are you know, why are these people punished like this such and such. So Gibreel explained, all the angels were with the problem. Explain to the President what the actions of these people are the sins of these people were. So Allah revealed that future to the sum of that future, to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when was that it was mainly during the trip of an era when Mirage during the journey with the proscenium extended to the, to the heaven. So the prophecy I'm
saying, I saw a man enjoying his life and all the blessings in paradise. And the reason for him entering paradise was that a branch of tree was hanging out in people's way, like it was a like a road or a passageway, and there was a branch of a tree sticking out. So would harm people probably poke them in the eyes, or cause them any kind of harm. So what he did, he broke it.
He broke it, as simple as that. And that simple act was the main cause for him to enter Paradise, obviously, we have to automatically assume that this guy was a more head. He was a more he was a person who was a believer, right? His no one enters paradise unless they achieved it, unless they achieve Laila. So this doesn't have doesn't have to mention all these details with every statement he makes. This is no Islamically. So the main reason after is to hate that made this person enter into Paradise was one, the simple act of making people's way safer for them. So if you're by one small branch sticking out, that's it.
So to show you that any act of goodness in Islam could actually be the cause that you went to paradise.
And this aligns with the Hadith that we mentioned previously, let the run Amina Rafi. Che, don't ever, don't ever be little or undermine the value of one simple good deed. Don't ever do that. Goodness is goodness. And it's valuable. And it's weighty and it's powerful. It has an impact.
And sometimes it's the small things that really count the small things that really count as we know in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
that he sent a group out group of Muslims and he appointed a leader and an Emir upon them. So that Emir told them
collect small twigs and branches. So they collected until they made a pile of these small branches. And he said, light a fire. So they, they do that. When it was became a big, huge fire, he said jump into it.
They refused. He told them the provinces and M says Manitoba Amira, overcut oughta honey. Whoever obeys is Amir. He has obeyed the prophets or sometimes you have to obey your Emir. He said jump into it, they refused.
So they went back later on to the Prophet Solomon explained to him the prophets Allah wa sallam said, if they jumped, if they jumped into it, they would never get out of it.
In Namaka, to film out of
obedience is only in what is good, and what is good. You don't obey someone who commands you to do a sin. Even if they are a father or a mother or an emir, or leader or whatever. Anyone who commands you to do something evil a sin, you don't respond that with that specific sin, you don't respond with that you do not obey anyone. So when it says about my Father commanded me, you don't do that. It's a sin. You obey Allah
You disobey your parent in this in this regards, and so on, and so forth. But the point here was that one day the prophets Allah mentioned this similar story about people who gathered all these small branches, they put them together and they lit them up, and they could cook their food.
And he said, these small branches, made a huge file. And he said, similar to that any small sins that you do, they pile up until they throw it throw you into the hellfire.
So the point is, don't ever undermine small things. It's usually the small things that really matter. So keep that in mind. So a simple act of kindness towards others, a simple act of care, whatever you can offer to others don't ever undermine this, because just removing a branch that was sticking out in people's way, was the main cause for this person to enter Jannah
next Hadith again from Ebola, and who call Paulo Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentor
from Atal Juma fistiana. Our unsought will fear Allah Huma Abedin, who were being Illuminati was here to tell us at a young woman muscle has offered the level
so the Prophets the messengers also themselves, whoever makes will do in a good way. So they don't rush through it and they miss some, you know, some spots. Now they make the dog fully properly, and they don't exaggerate because some people exaggerate when they make widow, they have this kind of worse worse or obsessive kind of doubts. So some people could make widow 10 times and they still not convinced that they made all these people need to work on this kind of was worse because it's really problematic and had has very negative consequences. But if you make a look properly according to the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim, then you've come to the masjid specifically the prophets of Salaam
has mentioned in June I hear you come to Juma and the person listens to the Imam and listening to the Imam to the homily on the day of Juma is an obligation is an obligation. Because if anyone says a word without like, like he speaks or has a conversation or strikes a conversation during the hotbar he loses the reward for the full Joomla automatically they lose the award for Joomla. So during Joomla never, you know check your
messages or your missed calls, or your news feed or anything give full attention to the Imam as he is giving the hotbar any distraction takes away from the reward that you're getting from the reward for Joomla so anyone who does this comes to Joomla and he listens carefully, then Allah Subhana Allah will forgive his sins from this Joomla from the previous jump to this Joomla old past week, plus three days, so 10 days, something as simple as that as simple as making good vobu Coming to Joomla and listening carefully to the Imam without any distractions that will get you 10 days of your life for giving completely simple apps or you can see with Allah subhanaw taala wherever you
go, whatever you do, no matter what your circumstances are, there's always an opportunity to to earn reward. And
you know, we gave a challenge last week that can you try to go through one day without earning reward.
Remember that we said make it a challenge it will actually give you a different perspective. If you try to go through one day without earning reward, you will be surprised how much of how many opportunities to get reward there are around you.
Again, it's reverse psychology, reverse psychology. When you just say I'm gonna go through this day without getting a reward. You'll be surprised you can't run away from reward it will be chasing you everywhere. So that shows you that reveals gives you a new perspective that wherever you go there are opportunities to get reward from Allah subhana wa Tada
and next Hadith again from Abu Hurayrah and when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Well that's pretty much the same, but it's good has more details. So let's mention it. And the rasool Allah has also been called either todo Al Abdullah Muslim, I will not mean for Salah watch her hoo, ha Raj. I mean what he couldn't do hardly at Inaba, la la had behind him and Malema. Only I asked him for either I said he had a Gemini ID he couldn't hardly at encounter but But Asha Toyoda who Malema
for either of us allegedly How did Kulu Holly I think Misha Tarija who Malema
got really mad. Jenna began Mina Dubrow Muslim, a simple act of worship that we do on a daily basis making model the prophets of salaam says when a believer when a Muslim makes widow when he washes his face, for instance, his face, every sin that he committed with his eyes, gets washed away with the water gets removed.
And when he washes his hands, up to the his arms up to the elbows every
sinned that he committed with his hands will be removed, washed away with the water.
And when he washes his feet
and he said that he committed with his feet that he walked to will be forgiven as he is washing his feets will be washed away with with that water. So when you make modo envision that can visualize that your sins are being washed away with that as simple act as will do. How long does it take from you to three minutes, five minutes you're doing it on a daily basis, do it consciously, mindfully that when I'm doing this hopefully inshallah my sins are going away.
And obviously we can extend that say when you're rinsing your mouth, whatever sins that you made with your mouth, with your tongue, then Sharla when you rinse your mouth, the sins go away with that.
So simple act, and you can be getting your sins forgiven just to the World War so be mindful of it. Be mindful of that
next Hadith, and who and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam called a Salah to him so we'll do more how to enter Juma Ramadan Ramadan mocha Farah to Lima Vina on either June It's Tony battle cover Allah wa Muslim again collected by Muslim from Abu Huraira and Allah's Messenger. So Salam said the five daily prayers one prayer after the other jump to Juma Ramadan to Ramadan, all of these expiate the sins in between, in between. So as long as you're praying, as long as you are praying Juma, as long as you are fasting Ramadan, you are getting all the time in between when you commit sins in sha Allah, these sins will be forgiven, but that also depends on the quality with which you do or
perform these acts of worship your Salah. Are you praying it with kosher and mindfulness Are you praying well
did Juma again, are you listening to the Imam without any distractions? With your song fasting? Are you doing it mindfully Are you doing it with a high level of intention for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala next Hadith and all other Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't look from Allah amalgam hula hooping Kataria we are forbidden Raja CalU Bella rasool Allah, Allah is verbal will do ll mCherry waka throttle Jota, Elan masajid Juan de la sala de vida Salah for the Comadre about Allah wa Muslim again collected by Muslim from humble Hora era that Allah's Messenger so someone said to the Companions, shall I not show you or tell you about the things with which Allah
removes the sins and elevates your status or your level in paradise? They said Indeed on messenger of ALLAH. So he said, making fool will do
at times of difficulty, what is this this is explained by another Hadith which says it's about what we'll do in Allah subhanaw taala. Basically, when it's cold weather now a lot of us don't experience this because we have hot water even in winter. But when it's cold, especially talking about, for example, the Arabian peninsula at night, it's extremely cold, the cold of the desert is dry, and it dries your skin and it's hard to use water at that time. So imagine you making Mordor So the Prophet Solomon says these, these difficult times when people just want to rush through the window quickly because they don't want to get affected by the cold water and what it does to the skin. And the
discomfort that it causes that when you make although even though it's difficult and you make it fully you make it properly. This is one of the things with which Allah removes your sins and elevate your status in in paradise. And abundance of steps to the masjid. You come to the masjid you go back from you come back from the Masjid. These are things that raise your levels in paradise and remove your sense and we oftentimes don't give him that value. But these are simple acts and doesn't take a lot to do. It doesn't take a lot to do you can enjoy your walk to the masjid and back from the Masjid.
As you're making Moodle just make Hello even when you don't feel like it or you feel it's difficult make it properly. Some people and sometimes you see them in the Mottola. Some people just rush through the window, they just splash water in the face, they rub over their arms, and they think that will not when they're actually missing parts of their
elbows or part of their feet and so on and so forth. So just make wudu properly, abundant abundant steps to the masjid one tomorrow sala de vida Salah fidelity como ribat you wait for the next Salah to come. The fact that you're looking forward for the next Salah
we're looking forward for the next Salah to come. So you don't want to engage in anything that might keep you busy from the next salah. Why do you do this? Allah is removing your sins and
pushing up your levels in paradise. These are simple things and they don't you can do most of them.
But these are things that raise your high in paradise and expiate YOUR SINS
next Hadith from almost an SRE all day long and collected by Bukhari Muslim.
Alcala, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mon Sol, Lily bardini, the halogen, whatever Canary whoever prays
and but then the to praise this is Fajr and Assad Fajr and Assad, the colder Bourdain because for the Arabs is the cold
or the cool about it here is more like a cool because time at Fudger in that kind of
climate is a pleasant time. It's a pleasant time, it's not hot, and acid comes after the heat of the noon time of the whole time. So this is why the Arabs call them el Bourdain all burden to praise of Lhasa and
Fajr. So the person is saying Whoever prays these prayers, He will enter paradise. Simple as that. And that's why the Prophet SAW Selim says
could look me at hello Ginetta Ilam and Abba. Everyone will enter paradise except those who refuse this woman yet but ya rasool Allah who refuses. He says man, Abba, Anita, hello Jana woman, Hassan ephah. Whoever obeys me will enter Jannah whoever refuses to obey Me will enter.
Then he has refused, or she has refused to enter paradise. So entering paradise, Allah made it so easy, Allah made it so easy for us. Next Hadith and again from Abu Salah shall be collected by Bihari followers, who is Allah and He will send them either mineable Abdo Sapphira cootie Bella Houma Ghana Yama room agreement, so he handle a wild party.
The prophets of salaam says if a person falls ill so you will you catch some kind of infection or a sickness
or you travel so your daily routine of the acts of worship that you do consistently is interrupted.
Allah subhanaw taala will still run the reward for your daily routine even though you're not doing it.
Let's say you pray for like half gamelan every night, but you happen to be sick for two weeks you couldn't wake up and pray your forecast, you didn't have the strength. Allah will write that for you. Because you did it consistently. And now there's an excuse Allah is gonna keep the reward running even though you're not doing it. Or you travel so your daily routine is interrupted. You cannot pray your prayer daily some network raka has every throughout the day. And then because you're traveling, obviously you miss out on this. Or maybe you're fast, you're fast, you fast Mondays and Thursdays and you happen to travel and it was too much for you to fast still Allah will
write the reward for you as if you were fasting Mondays and Thursdays. Why because you weren't doing this consistently. To show you how much Allah how much reward Allah Subhan Allah gives and don't forget, add to this that Allah rewards any good deed 10 times over, sometimes even more. So we get a lot of opportunity, a lot of bonuses in that regards. And the bonus is bigger than whatever we do far bigger than what we do.
Next Hadith and Jabba not the Allahu Anhu called kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam called Luma ofin. So the
whole Buhari around Muslim in the way it how they follow the aloha spirit is collected by Bihari Muslim came through different pathways that Allah's Messenger Salam said,
every model of every good act is sadaqa. Now roof the literal meaning of model means known models means known. So every non thing in every no one thing there is sadaqa literally doesn't make sense. But my roof in the Arabic language, it comes from the fact that humans recognize what's good in their fitrah
people recognize what's good in their fertile everyone knows that stealing is bad, that lying is bad, that injustice is bad. Everyone knows this. So anything that is in line with the Quran and the Sunnah, and people agree upon to be good, then it's automatically good and there is reward in it. So the problem the problem so son is saying get every good thing and every good action, there is reward, there is reward from Allah subhanaw taala so any simple thing you do, you're getting reward from Allah subhanaw taala. So, there is everything is registered. Everything is registered with Allah subhanaw taala. Not only that,
on the other side. On the flip side, you will find every sin is also registered.
myofilament Colin Illa de Haro table athlete, whatever you say is, is written by the two angels.
From a Yemen with Carla Littleton Hassan Euro whoever does an atom's weight of good he will get to see it he will get to meet it. Well my Yemen with kinda little attend shot rejada and whoever does an atom's weight of evil, and atoms weight of evil, then that person will meet it will have to deal with it. So everything counts, everything is registered, your whole life will be played in front of you on the Day of Judgment full you're going to see it live. It will be played out in front of you and you will have to deal with all of those consequences.
again from Abu Musa luxury here
that the Prophet SAW sent him says ma'am and Muslim in the early SUHOSIN can occur Mokelumne hula hula sadaqa women surely come in hula hula sadaqa while you're
in Canada who sadaqa our home Muslim? Have you rewired and overlay your religion will Muslim Overson Kulu Minho insan on what other but what else are you in Canada who saw the cotton Illuminati or Theory Y tiene la que la Eurasia Muslim on the Hudson wala is rouser and crewmen who insane on what other but when I say even in Canada who sadaqa whatever yeah who Jamie I'm gonna do it NSFW Allah who I know all who are who are young possible, different narrations from some of them from Muslims, some of them from both Korean Muslim the Prophet SAW Selim says any Muslim that plants any kind of tree any kind of plant be planted.
Whatever is eaten from this, whatever is used from this, then he will automatically get reward.
So if a person takes from it without permission or fruitless someone says, plant an apple tree.
someone steals from it, a thief steals from it. Automatically you're getting reward
anything that eats from it, bird
a human being who eats from it, you're getting reward for that you're getting reward for that just by planting a tree. So that shows you that even in plant planting, there's opportunity for reward now, I said nothing goes unregistered with Allah subhanaw taala nothing goes unregistered. So anything that you plant, and what goes, what follows from this is any kind of project that you build. And it has fruits and these fruits are taken by others, or others benefit from them. You are getting reward automatically.
You're getting reward automatically. Whether it's a book that you write people read benefit from it implemented, they benefit from it in a worldly fashion. Even let's say you write a book about how to build your own business, make your home business from home.
People read it, they make their own business, you're getting reward for the benefit that you get when
you for example,
build a school
or you contribute to let's say, to sponsoring a student and that student becomes a teacher or becomes a scientist or whatever he becomes and he produces something people will benefit from this. Some reward is coming back to you because of that.
So it's even hard to track back. whatever good you did. Sometimes it's even a smile that you give you meet someone with and that smile makes their day this person you smile, just as I said had an impact on them. This person goes with a beautiful spirit back home, he smiles on the face of his wife. And he's very kind to her just because of that smile you're getting reward for all of this.
So Allah traces back whenever you have done and whatever goodness in a collateral way, unintended way that as a byproduct, unintended that was caused by your initial action, regardless of how far it is, you're getting reward for it.
So this is why you should never be little acts of goodness. Anything you do, you just doing as they say in Arabic, they say ml hair Watermilfoil behalf, you know do good deeds and throw them in the ocean. Forget about them. Don't even think don't count them.
On the Day of Judgment, you will come you will see beautiful deeds, huge amounts of good deeds. You don't know where the weather even came from.
You don't know where they came from. But you need to keep in mind do things for Allah
Do Things keep Allah on your mind, keep Allah on your mind. So when you do whatever is good, keep Allah in your mind that this pleases Allah and I'm doing it because of this, this is going to enhance your reward. But as a believer, someone who believes in Allah, automatically anything you good, even out of your own nature, out of your own nature, you help someone out of your own nature, you automatically getting reward, you don't have to say, Okay, I have the intention to help this person for the sake of Allah, then you do it. That's not what it's not tells us to do.
That's not what Islam tells us to do. But any good deed any act of kindness and the act of help and assistance that you offer other people. And as long as you're a believer, you're doing it out of goodness, you're automatically getting reward. But when you keep Allah on your mind, you are tapping into a higher level of intention where things are turned into an act of worship, so you get more reward, you get more reward. For him on his head, you will find two people praying next to each other in the same line.
Doing externally the same acts, the same act of prayer,
you can't distinguish between them can't see a difference between them. He says one of them, this prayer sends him to the highest ranks in paradise. And this person, the next person next to him right next to him doing the exact externally the same things is getting nothing, no reward. Why? He says because of the quality of their intention
because of the quality of their intention. So intention is levels of tension is levels.
So again, this hadith shows that simple something as simple as planting a tree that yields fruits is actually a great source of good deeds. Any person that eats from it even without your permission any animal or bird that feeds on it, you are getting reward from Allah subhanaw taala

your steps will be written and it will count for you. So when you come closer you're reducing your steps. You'll reduce by but there is something we have to understand about this.
The Prophet SAW Selim would give each person the advice that suits him or her
that suits him or her. So for some people who don't come to the masjid because they are too far we say come closer to the masjid come closer to the masjid. But for some people are so keen and it seems that this is the case with these unsolved they are so keen to pray in the masjid even though they live for they come to the masjid for these people it's better for them to stay away to stay at that distance. Why? Because these people are committed to come into the masjid but if someone that distance is gonna or will mean that they won't come as often to the masjid we say no. Come to the masjid. It's more important because you don't want to miss out on the main reward of Salah the more
main reward of salata Gemma
so again, the Prophet of Islam is saying here you steps are written every don't undermine even the fact that you are making more steps these actually count these are in your favor.
Next Hadith. And this from from Eben wonder obey even Kevin O'Leary Allahu Anhu called cannot do alone.
The module in the middle Mr. Dimon who are Canada 2014 Allah, Allah, Allah will always try to hammer on top caribou fin Palma.
Within one bar for Karla Mallya so Ronnie and naman Zhi Li la Jim Bill mustard in Newbury Valley. Michelle? Yeah, Elon Musk. What would you eat the dollar jack to either Ernie for Carla Rasulullah Salallahu Salam Gemma Allah Holika Lika Kula wa Muslim. Again collected by Muslim from obey vocab that a man used to live the farthest from the masjid so obey recap said to him and he this man never missed a Salah in the masjid so obey recap said, Why didn't you buy some animal that you ride on makes it easier for you and quicker and safer as well to come to the masjid. And especially when it's hot weather as well instead of walking, it makes it easier for you, if you're writing, he said,
it doesn't please me even to be closer to the masjid. Because I want all my steps to be written for the sake of Allah my steps to the Mr. To be written and my steps back home as well to be written the prophets are someone he heard about this is it Allah has given you all of this. Again, it shows you that this person was so keen, he never missed a prayer. He never missed a prayer. But if you tried to apply it to someone who doesn't even come to the masjid in the first place, or comes less often, you might actually be pushing this person away from Salah. So each person requires a different treatment.
and it'd be Mohammed I'm delivering the Amerindian ask for the Allahu Anhu Mr. Alcala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala moana Hustla hustler either how many how to Lenzi ma'am in Armenia man will be hustlers in minha Raja Sabha, what is the AMO? Rhodia Illa Allah Allah will be a general Rahul Bukhari and many and europea who ear Holly Aquila, Lebanon Ha ha ha.
This from our blog on how to hustle the Allahu Anhu collected by honorable Hardy. Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
40 deeds, simple deeds or personal traits.
The most difficult of them.
The most difficult to them is called Money Headlands. This is something some, some of the rich or middle class Arabs used to do to the poorer people.
If I have some goats, or some sheep,
I would keep one or two of them with a poorer person.
I say keep it for some time. So that person uses it for milk
to feed himself, and I offer it to him without any return. Keep with him for some time, then I take it back.
So I'm not offering him even the whole goats or sheep, I'm just keeping it with him for for a certain amount of time for him to benefit from its milk. That's it.
And at an appointed time, I take it back. So the proper time says 40 deeds, the most difficult of them is this that as simple as offering or lending your goat to someone who's poor, so they can feed themselves. And then they will, they're gonna give it back to you. So your asset is still your asset, you're not losing your assets.
So imagine the lesser ones, these are 14 and this is the highest and most difficult of them. What about the other ones? Simple, we're going to be more simple did the Prophet of Islam says anyone of any human being or any Muslim or any person who does and any of those deeds, hoping for reward from Allah subhanaw taala and believing in that, then Allah would enter him into Paradise because of this collected by
we shouldn't make Islam difficult. We shouldn't make Islam technical. We should not kill the life or suck the life out of Islam. And that's what a lot of people do. One of the tambourine I can't remember his name he said to
to one of his students, sometimes
people learn something
learn something but they miss out on other things so they know something they're not hottie one Hadith they know a verse or they know five Hadith hearing about something.
they think that's it.
They think that's it, so think they know it all. So when see someone could someone contradicting what they know, straight automatically they think that person has done something wrong. Automatically. Why because they have an assumption. Well, I don't know about this specific issue must be wrong because I know it all with regards to this issue.
So, so this
tablet he saw from one of his students, this kind of
I would say harshness in criticizing people making things difficult for them.
So he says yeah, I'm gonna Yeah, you have when he gives them an advice. Oh, my son. You haven't? You haven't?
The last two minutes, that'll Islami I'll leave this on the deck, do not narrow down the vastness of Islam to the north of your chest. Your personal experience does not dictate anything on Islam.
If you don't know, do not okay. It's good what you know for yourself, but do not force it on others, when others know more than you. An example of this was some of the companions they heard. One of the companions heard another companion recite the Quran in a different way. And he says, Well, what did you learn this from? He said, I learnt it from the Prophet Solomon, he said, but I took this verse from the province of Rome, and he didn't teach it to me that way. So what you're reciting is wrong.
So the other person said, Okay, what did the person teach you? So he recited and one of the one of the ratios that was almost one of them was totally alone. No. So. So the second person says, Okay, show me how the person taught you how to read it. So he read it in a different way. He said, No, no, no, the person didn't teach it, teach it to me that way, you're reciting it wrong. So they go to the Prophet SAW center.
And the problem became angry. He became angry with them, and he said, couldn't look on my face and each one of you is reciting it correct.
Don't let after LIFO that factory for alakija will not do not, do not create differences among yourselves.
This is why it happens often sometimes, people come to me and they see a must have as written for rewire for credit wash.
For karats wash your mother the people of
North Africa in the West Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Mauritania,
Al mustard. On the road, the Arab Arabic letters, the cloth has one.on top. So in Welsh, it's written mainly by the inlet another by the writing of Maghrib, which is the fat or the TAF has one dot the fat has no.on top so the dotting system is slightly different. So this person says some sometimes some people say I found a Quran that is distorted, a copy of the Quran has changed. You need guys to move this out of the Masjid.
So, the first time I saw this, I actually took it seriously. So look into the into the most half, I realized, oh, that's what that says, look at Bacara bear has no dot underneath.
Say okay, no problem. So this brother automatically assumed this is a distorted must have. Why? Because all he knows, is the most half as written pair, the rewired has a way to have some awesome, but the most half when it's written for wash, white wash, it's written differently. So because he doesn't know this automatically, He classified it as wrong. classified it as wrong. So
again, here, Islam does not. Oftentimes we limit Islam, to what we know,
to what we know. And we don't realize that everything in life that is essentially good and it's in line with the Columbia sunnah is automatically as we said, part of Islam part of Islam. So we should not suck the life out of Islam by making it too technical and robotic.
So anything that's essentially good, and it's in line with the Quran, the Sunnah, is automatically part of Islam. It's not an addition to Islam, it is part of Islam, as simple as that. So anything good, any help that you offer any kind of kindness, any assistance, any contribution in life, that is good,
could be turned into an act of worship and could be a source of a lot of reward from Allah subhanho wa taala. So the prophets also the missing here, even these are there are 40 Simple deeds, the most difficult and highest of them is that you offer your sheep for someone, you lend it to them, so they keep it and they use its milk. So they survive by means of this. And then you take it back. Any one of this is the most difficult any one of these 40 deeds if you do it for the sake of Allah hoping for reward and believing in that, it will enter you into paradise. So we have so many opportunities to enter into paradise yet, you'll find most of humanity refuses to go into paradise Allah made it
you know, how
how can you make it even more simple than that?
How can you make it more simple than that? Almost everything around you is is a gateway to Paradise, almost everything.
and I've even Hatem la Allahu Anhu calls me to Nabi SallAllahu and he was telling me it happened now whether will be shipped Tatum Mala Jaffa con la he says I heard Allah's Messenger saucer
Law says protect yourself from the Hellfire even if it's by a split date.
See a date split it. That's all what you have offered to someone whose need this could protect you from the hellfire. Again don't undermine good deeds don't undermine good deeds
another narration that's collected also by Bukhari Muslim another version of this hadith Mammon comment I had in India so you can live a horrible holiday Sabina who Albania who told you man for Jambo Amen I mean who fella era he learned that we under watch I mean over la era Ilana caught them way on the Rubin ad fella era Elon nilotica our G fit Hakuna Ravello Bishop detangler, Thurman demiurgic Femi Kenny met him by Jeeva.
Prophets of salaam says
every one of you each one of you will Allah will speak with him without a translator without a mediator directly.
So that person will look to their right. They will only see their deeds look to the left will only see that there is no one is going to come to your assistance. It's only your deeds what you have done.
Then he looks ahead of him and he sees only the hellfire. He sees the hellfire. So he says protect yourself from the Hellfire even if it fits with a split date, a split date. So even simple deeds can save you from the Hellfire simple deeds you never paid attention to. You never even counted. You're never registered, but they will come to your rescue on the Day of Judgment. Then the prospect says if you can't even offer that split date, like you have nothing to offer at all. Familiar me agents will be killing my template. If you're unable with a goodly word and protect yourself from the Hellfire with a goodly word.
And you'll find most of humanity are very miserly when it comes to good words. We like to put people down. We like to find people's faults. We like to judge people. We like to pick on people. We like to criticize people. We like to defame people. We like to scandal people we like to backbite people
but when it comes with something that can protect you from the Hellfire is a nice word. A nice word. What a nice word. What could a nice word be?
As simple as Good morning
as simple as Have a nice day. That's a good word.
That's a good word that can protect you from the hellfire. Now we don't even count it part of Islam we say that slife Islam is in the masjid, right? Islam is in the masjid. Islam has to be about frowning it has to be about difficulties has to be about hardship. It has to be about suffering, that wisdom has to be all these daily things, helping out people being nice, being kind saying good words, offering help and support. These are not part of Islam. These are something these are dunya.
So we have killed two thirds of our Islam automatically and, you know, kicked it out of our lives
out of our lives.
So this is why some some of the practicing people they don't see Islam as an even normal way of life. You can't be a normal human being. You cannot exercise your humanity. If you're going to be a practice practicing Muslim. You have to be strange with everything you do.
And then they call the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Salem Islam started as a stranger and we'll come back as a stranger.
In our deviant people, they know that my Tesla used to say this hadith the Sunnah honestly doesn't know when they appeared like Tolkien the time of jam judgment the Rama jam Evans of one and then the martyrs Zilla like even though it'd be to add
and others when they weren't before getting some power, especially with him you know, it'd be to add
you know what they used to say for Allison this to say it because Allison needs to say to them that you come with strange things you guys are strange things strange things. They used to say to them. Carla rasool Allah Azza wa sallam in in Edina weather urban or say who do or even come up with that photo. But Allah is to say the Prophet SAW Selim said, this religion started as a stranger, and it will return as a stranger so glad tidings to the stranger ones.
So you can't use the Hadith justify your mistakes. It can't.
And unfortunately, in many cultures, you will find
a moment person starts. handler This is not the whole story, but this is the most common
attitude. You find someone once they start practicing the straightaway they were a frown.
straightaway, they become judgmental. Straightaway they alienate the parents, the siblings
gangs, their friends and they became become very harsh harsh become very hard to get on with
that's a fault and practicing Islam that's a fault in practicing Islam
and it gives a bad image as well. Whereas look at the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Salem the prophets of salaam would keep a smile and vice smile he said an uncanny we're going to build our human effort affiliate will highlight only a smart some practicing people you don't want to come near them why because all they have is criticism judgment and you know harshness but that's not the example of the prophets arson
okay next Hadith and this beautiful one and unassembled we Allahu
Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Allah had a little boy Amina Labadi, and yet Kudal colletta mother who had a
we shall have a shadow better for your mother who Alia lava who Muslim
is corrected by Muslim there is from Anna's MidAmerica Allahu Anhu. We said Allah's Messenger and salam said that Allah would be satisfied. Allah would be pleased that if a servant from a servant, that when he eats food, he's thankful
you have a bite you thankful for Allah for it, or you have a drink you thankful to Allah for that drink. Allah will be pleased with you.
It's as simple as that.
So all what Allah wants from us is to be thankful towards him. Can someone say okay, I'm just going to be thankful for food and drink but I'm not going to pray. We say no, these things are known already. These things are known already. So you have to build on this. So the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim build on each other, so you don't take one in isolation. to the exclusion of others. They all work as one
text that complements itself.
The last hadith is in this chapter.
And maybe an OBE nobody Allahu Anhu.
Call callers and enemies Arsalan Khan Cooley Muslim in sadaqa called our aid to inland our aid in the myriad kala Yama Rubia de fanfare and if so, where to duck all our aid to England yesterday there Carla. You've been with Al Haddad Hillman hoof Palau eater in them yesterday. Carla Yamalube, Ulema raffia. Wilhite Allah a writer in them you are the human sequiny Sharifa in South Dakota on a collected by beheading Muslim, narrated from
obey Arabic Allah who I know
that Allah's Messenger Salam said, Every Muslim there is sadaqa upon Him every day and we said this is mentioned another Hadith on every joint there is sadaqa. So, obey asked, he said what if this person cannot offer money to given sadaqa the Prophet SAW Selim says, Let him do some work,
earn some money, benefit himself and give part of it as Salah. So that shows proactivity as well, but you don't have money. You can't you don't sit back, you try. You seek means to work and earn a living. So you support yourself and you also support
So OB says What if he is unable He's incapable of that physically, maybe some kind of something prevents him from that. The Prophet SAW Selim says, Let him help someone who is in need. Not necessarily financially, but someone who needs assistance, someone who needs help. He needs physical support. You give him that offering that support says What if he's unable to do this? He's incapable of that. He says, Yeah, model will model fit will hide he advises people to do good, something good.
Because what if he doesn't do that? Still, he's asking what he wants to know more. The prophets of salaam says he holds back his evil holds back any harm. And this will count as a reward for him collected by Bukhari and Muslim. So you can see as we said, there are passive ways even to get to get Hessonite to get reward from Allah Subhan Allah the fact that you hold back your harm, is a means to get reward for Allah. And it's so such such a passive thing. Why because we human beings in a neffs in itself, we have some evil tendencies. Some of the workings of the self pushes to do something bad. envy, jealousy, hatred, selfishness, revenge,
narrow mindedness, anxiety, this could actually push us to do something bad.
It could push you to say a bad word to someone, or to meet someone with harshness and disrespect or maybe to inflict some harm on someone or to conspire against someone.
So, if you hold back
These, this is an invisible process that happens in your chest and your heart. No one knows that you have maybe anger that day. But you want to act, you have the urge to act on this anger, but you hold it back. No one knows about this. It's between you and Allah, you get reward for that.
You get rewarded for that no one observes this, no one knows about this. People think you're quiet. That's it.
No, but you're holding back from Allah will reward you for that.
So you see, it's not only even physical, visible actions, but even things, this inner conflict that you have within to do something bad or not, and you're holding back, you're getting reward for that.
You're getting a reward for that. So that shows you as I said, even if you try to go through a day without avoiding or reward, you won't be able just to show you how many opportunities to do good things for the sake of Allah, and earn reward from Allah subhanaw taala. So all of this goes within the same the full context of Islam is that it's all built on La ilaha IL Allah and to hate on worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. And on establishing the five daily prayers, praying them properly, and on fasting Ramadan, pings occur during Hajj, and so on and so forth. This is part and parcel don't take it in isolation. But we should not neglect this because this is the open field of life
where you can earn reward
every second of your life. While going about doing your daily business you can be you can be working and getting so much reward. You can be walking down the street getting so much reward. You can be just working out and getting so much reward
thank you it's
more either manager belt or the ALLAH and he said in the letter Cebu, no Mati come after Cebu Almighty, He says I seek reward unexpected reward in my sleep, as I seek reward when I am awake and doing things.
So even if you go to sleep with intention, was the intention, I'm going to preserve that gift that Allah gave me, that's the body I'm gonna give it its dressed. So I'm able to do good things when I'm awake. You go to sleep with this intention, you're getting so much reward while you're sleeping.
So that's how the Companions you know, went about seeing things rather than diseases will be Allahu annual Rahim Allah. He said,
can a seller full layer on eBay that I think ephra Just so that you will see what I can can do your own Adeleke if you're hosting a hook, walk a few other antennas, the companions or the allow him that's what he says, Did not see. worshipping Allah was manifest in excessive prayers or abundant prayers and fasting. But in Husna Hello, good character, good mannerism.
And in holding back harm from people, you don't harm other people, that's how they say L A bad can your own in a band. That's how they used to see worship. So we have to recognize this this. The reason I'm stressing this because this is it's missed. This is something we overlook. But it's a great source of goodness, it's an open gateway to paradise. It's an open gateway to paradise. And sometimes the approach that lacks approach to a lot it lacks these beautiful aspects of Islam. As I said, they suck the life out of Islam. And it shows Islam even to its own followers, more of a cult meaningless thing, you just certain rituals you have to do. And certain things you have to say a
certain way you have to be, but it has nothing to do has no bearing on your daily life has no bearing on your relationships, has no bearing on how you go about doing you're running your day to day life. But that's not true. That's not true. Islam is a way of life, complete way of life. And it's so natural. You don't have to fake it. You don't have to manufacture it and engineer it is so natural because that's your nature. That's your nature, it's Islam. So that's the chapter we're done with it. Inshallah, next week, I will deal with the neck following chapter which is very important. And it's about Bible exercise, the FIBA which is
about an active side means economy
being so, I've decided for a better being moderate in worship, being moderate in worship, because that's very important as well. It's easy to go to extremes either negligence, or into the harshness and excessiveness and extremism and overdoing things. Both of them are,
are under an advice or advice against in Islam. Moderation is the wave of the prophets, Allah Suleiman his companions, we have five minutes so we'll take a couple of questions. If you have any
preferably pertaining to these things that we mentioned
introduction to what people say. That's a good question the prophets of salaam says and authentic hadith in Legend Netta hillfort Bill McCarroll alpha two, Alpha tiljander 20 mCherry, who have fatty, narrow Misha Howard, that Jana was surrounded by hardships. And
Hellfire was surrounded by attractions and temptations. That doesn't at all go in contradiction with this because what we mentioned is from the Hadith of the prophets of Salaam, and that hadith is from the process. There is no contradiction. Contradiction happens as Imam Hussein. He says.
Whoever finds or thinks he finds a contradiction between a hadith and the Hadith, or a verse and the verse or a verse and the Hadith, then it's only in their head. Let them come to me and I will fix it for them. So any kind of this why the Scholars have asked Will they say a youth or adult in Benin source in nama who have Fiat in the mouth of Vinny? Well, it's a fieldworker, any seeming discrepancy or contradiction in religious texts. It's only in the head. It's not real. It's not real. But that's a very good question. Now, generally to refer to Bill McCurry. Why because
a lot of the things that lead to paradise go against the desires of the self.
So waking up for Fudger
paying from your own money, being consistent in your Salah, during times of hardship, being patient, during times of injustice being done to you, you don't take revenge, you still be just you don't oppress other people, and so on and so forth. All of these go against the desires of yourself, the temptations of yourself, and that's where the hardship comes from. That's where the
