hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Azim mean, while
we're still in the chapter Babylock decidi Philipa chapter
if decide we said, is being moderate, being moderate when it comes to worship. So that means In Islam we are supposed to take a moderate approach even to worship, even to worship. So again, because the Hadith creates some kind of context altogether, I'm gonna just touch on them. Quickly. The Prophet SAW Selim when he was told about a woman that prays and fast so much the prophets of salaam
showed some kind of displeasure to that saying, Man, it can be my own. He says, Take or hold on to what you are able to sustain. Don't push yourself too much in worship. But the three people who came and one of them said I don't marry women, one of them said I fast and never break my fast and one person said I pray all night, the Prophet SAW Selim says
I marry women and I fast and sometimes I break my fast. I, some nights I pray some nights I go to sleep. So whoever chooses other than my sunnah, then I'm free from him. The third Hadith the Prophet SAW Selim says Halakhot on their own those who go to extremes or to access these people will be destroyed or it could be a draft from the prophet or may they be destroyed.
We move on to the next Hadith and Ebihara terribly Allahu Anhu and Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam upon in Medina us thrown in Medina usahawan why don't you share the deen Why don't you shed Why don't you shut the dino inevitable? I think there's a printing error here. When you shut the Drina I had on Elavil about who said they do work audible. What I'm sure was the ennoble heard what he was. He was a minute doula
the Prophet SAW Selim says, and this is a broad statement in Edina you saw on the religion is is
the religion of Islam is is that means it's built on ease, it has ease within it. The main characteristic of Islam is is that means when you see anything opposite than is you automatically should assume this is not from Islam.
automatically, automatically not from Islam in Edina use Ron why don't you share the dino valuable when you shared you shared the DNA had an 11 level anyone who pulls against this religion in this sense, you shared that in Islam means to take something all at once, or to take something in an edgy manner in a very aggressive manner, the process and anyone who has this approach to Islam, then there will be overwhelmed. There will be overwhelmed if you start wanting to start to become reached the highest levels of Islam all at once overnight. You will end up leaving Islam or you will end up end up compromising on great things from Islam. So this is why the prophets of salaam says in the de
nuestra deen the religion of Islam is ease and anyone who takes Islam aggressively or forcefully all at once, then they will be overwhelmed. For said they do work Haribo What am Shiro so the prophets of salaam says try your best said they do said that is do as much as you can. Do as much as you can.
What are the more if you cannot hit the mark Then hit close to it arriba you cannot always get everything done. You can always be the best at everything. Karrimor means get as close as possible to the mark. Get as close as possible to the mark web zero and be optimistic. Be optimistic. Have hope. Then the problem says was the AU noble had what he what row Hattie was she in minute DULHA
Okay, I'm gonna read the Imam and know his commentary then Sharla will explain the Hadith in more detail. He says my theory why I said they do work Arivu do what Oh, who was a woman Abdullah Al Costa Costa Tebu. I will have a dean homophone alum and us Allah Madam Madam Musa, Martha Ada, what are we I'm sober.
Why don't we add a new shirt that Dina has done? Well, I will who will available who are available who didn't know what the decal Masha do and mocha woman Dini Lika throat you
will never say oh well in the HA HA HA HA HA with dolger Afro Leila Wa he is harvested ultimate empty. When I know who is Stephanie and Allah Atilla xojo Emad, if you worked in a child they come with a lot equal Rubicam behaved with a steady Donal EBA data without us I'm on what's a blue on a Mac soda come camera and massage moral hazard DSCOVR the yellow card weighs three who who are the better off you really have yes it will mark so Debbie retirement Allahu Allah beautiful explanation from an imam an nawawi Rahim Allah Who to add
he says so we take the first time in Medina us from the province of Salaam in said in Edina You're strong. Remember no he says a dean.
which is the religion of Islam.
Then is is La new shad the dino Illa Allah Who are the new shad, the Deena I hadn't another narration when you said that, Deena I hadn't Illa fallible.
He He's saying the statement of the prophets of Saddam he will be overwhelmed or religion will overwhelm him. He says a caliber who do you know what it is and Dallek so anyone who takes a harsh approach to Islam, Islam will overwhelm him will be too much for him. So he says a relative who Dean Islam will overwhelm him well I just angelic and he will not be able to sustain his his stringent or harsh approach what I just said that he can Moshe do animal Kawamata Dini the cathedral, and this person would not be able to grasp religion all at once. Because religion has so many things within it has so many ways within it, not ways doesn't mean this way. And that way, that means there are so
many things that you can do in Islam. And if you try to do them all at once is going to be overwhelming it will be too much.
Then the Prophet SAW said I'm satisfied said they do work Haribo were up zero. And we said said they do is try your best. So that is basically said that in Arabic means aiming at a target said that someone is like holding and
is doing archery
or any form of shooting. They say set did set did means
aim at something aim at a target set digital says aim at something for the sake of which is aiming obeying Allah subhanaw taala worker Rebo get as close as possible to the target hard to get as near as possible to the target, you'll most likely you won't be able to hit your target. You'll come be a righteous person overnight. You can't be this great Muslim overnight. You can't do this. This comes with time. With 2030 5080 years. That's how this these things can we keep building up towards Allah subhanaw taala Whoa, okay, what about you and stay optimistic? Then we're steady, you know, beloved, whatever, Roja?
The problem says seek seek help. In the early times what roja in the late times, where she emitted doula a little bit of the night, this is a figure of speech. This is a vigorous speech. Imagine a man I know he explains it, he says
Allahu Allah dua
going or approaching something or embarking on something in the early morning, I'll had one Aroha
is coming back at the end of the day, coming back to the end of the day. And doodle is
the later part of the night he says this is some kind of
a figure of speech and he says, Marina who is studying, or Atilla here as a man if he worked in a shop, he says, Seek to obey Allah subhanaw taala. With righteous deeds, at times you have energy. When you when you are fresh, when you have energy when you feel it. We worked in a shop where Ferrari oluwo become anyone your mind is free. When you have a free mind, not when you're busy and you have so many things. When your mind is at the beginning of the day, no responsibilities yet or towards the end of the day. You're done with your daily business or the last part of the night. There is no work to be done. This is the time when you have energy and you have a free you have a
free mind. You have a peaceful heart
without equal will become behavior tested is doing at a bar that I want to test on so that you can enjoy the worship and not feel bored of it.
That's what you want to know is saying, behave with pistol. In doing so you will find the sweetness and the enjoyment of the worship. And subhanAllah. Sometimes in these days, this seems to be like an alien thing, enjoy the worship, if you enjoy it on it, that's not good. It needs to be hot. But this is remember, no, he's saying, the meaning of the hadith is that you seek the times when you have energy when you have a free mind. So you can enjoy the worship and not feel bored as you do it. So you when you do it, you do it in a state of presence, and enjoyment. So you can sustain it, it can do more of it. Because when when a bad when acts of worship, pay off, makes you feel good,
you will sustain it. But if it doesn't feel good, it's very hard to sustain it.
What's a balloon Amok so that then you reach your goal, you reach your target, and your target is basically to make it to Jana is making it to Allah subhanaw taala. So he says come out, and then we'll see I feel like her that. He says the intelligent traveler when someone travels, especially that those times they traveled, either walking or by having a camel or a horse.
And you talking about the Arabian Peninsula. So he's saying I must have had the pleasure of he had to heal our pathways three who are the Battle of era, he says, an intelligent and smart traveler. They travel in the early morning and late towards the end of the day when the sun is not hot, not in the heat of the day.
And in the in the second half of the night. Why? Because it's easy to travel those nights, then he would rest and he would dress his writing animal at other times, like the middle of the day,
the middle of the day, or the beginning of the night because he needs to take some night's sleep. So he says that's a smart travel and you are traveling towards Allah subhanaw taala you need to be smart. So you take the time or you choose the times for your worship when you are when you have a lot of energy when you have a free mind and you can focus on your worship and you can enjoy it.
And when you don't feel the worship that's the time you will rest. That's the time you rest so you get more energy inshallah when the right time comes. So he says firstly it will Matsuda be re retirement Allah annum. So he says the traveler reaches their destination without so much fatigue without so much fatigue Allahu Allah. So the point in this hadith is that the prophets of salaam says the religion Islam is all about is Islam Islam is all about is Allah says in the Quran, you read Allah who become a nuestra Wella you read to become universal and saltiness. Allowance is for you. Allah doesn't want hardship. Also, that's an Bacala. Allah Subhana Allah says, well, in Surah
Nisa, Allah who you read, or you have FIFA ankle, or you read Allah or you have a fancam, Holika lesson or whatever, Allah wants to make things easier for you loans to lessen your burden.
And man was created week. So Islam is all about making things easy for us, not difficult for us. So if we are making things hard for us through Islam, we need to investigate a bit more, we need to ask someone a person of knowledge to give us proper guidance.
And in this hadith, also there is the importance of reading yourself in the sense see the times when you are more enthusiastic about worship, when you are more likely to engage at a deeper level when you are worshiping so choose these times for worship. Choose the times that you worship Allah Subhanallah wisely. It's not about as again, not about quantity, it's about quality as well. So remember, Noah is explaining here the prophets of salaam said choose these times early in the day or towards the end of the day like a traveler, or
the last part of the night. He says because you are traveling and the traveler chooses these times because they are the easiest for him. These are cool hours of the day and the night and it's easier for him to travel. So the Prophet SAW Selim is saying as well in your travel to Allah Subhana Allah choose the times for you, in which you travel in which you make progress and that's when you pray when you recite Quran when you make the killer. Choose the times when you find your heart present in that worship.
Next Hadith and another symbol the Allahu Anhu call the holler and maybe you sallallahu alayhi wa salam and masjid for either handblown mum do don't be in a serie attain for Calama HA HA HA HA the hablan desire for either I thought I'd love to be here for call and be useful Allah Who and he was sending him a hello, you're suddenly had to come in the shop or whoever either fell off and you're
going holy. The prophets have said this hadith is created by Bukhari and Muslim from anastomotic Allah and the messenger so Salam entered the masjid one day, and the message of the prophets of salaam had poles made of
palm trunks, palm tree trunks. So he found a rope tied between two
We'll pull two poles.
And when he saw that rope, he questioned he said, What is this rope for? He said, What is this about? They said, it's for Xena are they allow and had the wife of the Prophet SAW Salem
because she was not for her worship Xena been to judge for the Allah.
So, he said they said that Xena, she prays at night in the masjid
and when she gets tired, she cannot sustain standing. She would lean on the rope she would take the rope as or as a support tool for herself to stay. The Prophet SAW Selim says untie it, take it off that rope. Then he says you're solidly ahead of commoner Shopaholic, one of you pray when you find the energy and the stamina and the focus to do it for either Fatah failure. But if you are tired and you're unable to sustain it, go to sleep.
Go to sleep. Go to sleep. That's the advice of the Prophet salallahu Salam next Hadith. I think this clear the meaning is clear. And you should tell the Allahu anha analysis of Allah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon either an asset or how do como who are your Salif and you're good, Hector tired haben who known for in her comida Salah when I used to lie, Adriel Allah who had the Hubble were still fit for your soup bone Hafsa whom Falcon Halle
again collected by Bihari Muslim from actual the Allahu Anhu that Allah's Messenger Salam says What if one of you feel sleepy
while they are praying at night as the night prayer,
let them go to sleep, go to sleep, you feel sleepy, tired, you're praying at night, feel sleepy, go go to bed.
Go to bed until they they're no longer sleepy until they get enough rest. That he says because one of you he doesn't know if he's standing up to pray. And because of this sleeplessness or because of the drowsiness and because they're tired, they become disoriented. So you might seek for forgiveness or want to seek for forgiveness, you end up basically cursing yourself, end up catching yourself like this imam who was leading the Salah, and he was extremely fatigued and tired and I was praying behind them. That was long ago more than 15 years ago. And
basically, he made dua in which he made the keynote. And he said Allama Philip machete Cana will mostly
forgive the disbelievers men and women. And then he went he said
Allamani enablement meaning I will destroy the believers men and women. So if it's the ones disoriented why, fatigued and tired, so the prophet is also missing if you're tired, you praying at night. Don't take enough rest, sleep. Then when you had enough rest, you can wake up and pray again and
again, why would someone push themselves to pray when they are tired? That's the same thing. ellipsoidal Fatah, the chapter the heading of the chapter is being moderate in worship, being moderate in worship. So Islam calls for moderation even in worship, even in worship
of the ledger very similar holy Allahu Anhu Oh my god. Come to Salima and maybe use Allahu Allah you are synonymous Salawat for Canon Salah to custom will hold back to who has done or our whole Muslim colo custom and a BA in a toady well kiss off
this Grexit by Muslim and reported by Jabra Sumeragi Allahu Anhu Ma. He said I prayed with the Prophet Solsona that means for over a long period of time I prayed with the Prophet SAW Selim and his Salah was moderate in length was not too long because not too short. It was moderate and it's hot button Juma as well was not too long. It was not too short. It was moderate. Next Hadith Abuja Haifa we have even Abdullah on the Allahu Anhu on our Hanabusa Allahu alayhi wa sallam Bina Sulaiman be

After the cooler the hacking hacker who attended the VDSL Allahu alayhi wa sallam for that kind of data you can overcome and maybe you'll be used on Sunday for the personal man, but one Buhari collected by Buhari from what even on the level the Allahu Anhu he said the prophets Allah sent them when Muslims came from Omaha Jerome came from Mecca to Medina, the prophets of salaam made Anwar ha or the Brotherhood. So there was a brotherhood between Salman and Pharisee and Abu Dhabi, the Buddha is from an onslaught. Salman is from them hygiene.
Oh, sorry. Salman is from the margerine.
Actually, even with a Buddha, anyway, the Prophet SAW Salem made America a brotherhood between Sandman and Buddha. So Salman
visited a Buddha one day and he saw on with her that he saw her in a very disheveled state, like she's not nicely dressed, she looks she doesn't care. She doesn't take care of herself, obviously.
So he asked her why why WhatsApp was in what's what's wrong with you? Why do you look like this? What's going on? She said, it's your brother, a Buddha. He has no need in this dunya. That means he doesn't approach her out of her husband does not approach her has no interest in her. So she stopped taking care of herself.
So a Buddha came home, and he made some food. And he offered it to Solomon to eat it.
And he said eats, I can't eat with you. I'm fasting. Salman said, I'm not going to eat unless you eat with me.
So he was volunteering. So you can see that that was getting into so much worship, fasting almost every day, praying all night, and so on and so forth. So Salman realized this was this shouldn't be the case. So he said, I'm not going to eat your food. He said double that I won't eat your food unless you eat with me. So Buddha ate with him. Then it was nighttime and Sandman was gonna stay with Abu Dhabi.
So, When night came,
Salman wanted to sleep. A Buddha went up to pray, Salman said to him go to sleep. So he slept. So the man is much more knowledgeable than I would doubt that at that stage, so this is why I would doubt that would listen to his advice would take from him. So he said sleep, go to sleep. So I would add that went to sleep. Then he woke up. He wanted to pre sell man woke up and he told him go back to sleep. So he went back to sleep he slept. When it was the last part of the night Sandman, he himself wakes up and he wakes up with the up wake wake up. They pray together pm Elaine. Then Salman addressed Abdullah and he said in Arabic a headache. Your Lord has rights upon you. We're in the NFC
Kalik on yourself has rights upon you. When he Alec Alec and your wife has rights upon you. For an article lady have been Hakka who give each one their rights give each one the right then they went to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and they told them about the story. Or Buddha told them about the story the Prophet SAW Selim says sadaqa Salman Salman told the truth. What he said was right. So this is why when you do excessive worship, most likely you're going to waste other parts of your life where you have obligations to fulfill could be family could be yourself and yourself it could be looking after your health can be looking after your socialization social side of who you are,
could be looking after your your job and making a living or even developing yourself in terms of skills. So you are able to get a job or have a business or do something. So in this life, you are put in some kind of a matrix of obligations and responsibilities. So Islam tells you to find a middle point where you give everything that has right upon you, you give you fulfill these rights.
You cannot say I just want to worship Allah, I don't want anything else. You can't do this. Because you have parents you have to give them the rights. If you're married, you have to give your wife her rights and your children their rights. And you have to provide for yourself, your community has rights upon you and so on and so forth. So you have to give each one the rights upon you again, this shows why moderation in worship is ideal and is optimal. Because you don't live in a single kind of context which is worship. Allah has put us in this world as well to test us with other obligations and other responsibilities.
And Abu Mohammed I'm delivering I'm gonna ask for the Allahu and oh my god Allah Akbar on maybe you saw Allahu Allah He was a neat cool Hola Hola, su

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam vollum In Darrick whether an akuna Kabil to a fella certain a yam and let you follow Rasulullah Salallahu salam ala Yemin le one Maddy. This hadith is
from Abdullah even Ebbinghaus along the Allahu Anhu Allah
and they are mentioned in a Sahih Bukhari and Muslim.
He says the Prophet SAW Selim was told that I said is Abdullah abnormal, and La Ibnu amillennial. Us. He said the Prophet was on and was told about a statement that I made and my statement was, I shall fast all days. And I shall pray all nights for as long as I live. So the prophets of salaam approached me and he said, you said that statement? And I said yes, indeed I said, the prophets of salaam said you will not be able to sustain this, you will not be able to sustain this. So fast some days and break your fast other days. Pray some nights and sleep some nights and fast in a month, three days. Each has Anna is multiplied three times. So three to 10 times. So three days,
times 10. That's 30 days.
And he says if you do this, it would be as if you have fasted the whole year if each month you for three days, this will come to you as if you have fasted the whole year, all days in the year. So he said I said to Allah's Messenger Salam I can do more than this. I feel I can do more than this. The prophets of salaam said if this is the case, fast one day and break your fast two days. So every every three days fast one day.
So I said to him I can do more than this. The prophets of southern says then fast one day and leave one day that's fast every other day. And this is the cm of their wood or the salami it's the best of the best type of cm.
So I said to the prophets of salaam I can do more than this, or can do better than this. The prophets of salaam told him there's no better than this. There is no better than this later on.
Abdullah bin Allah, Allahu Anhu. Later on in his life, he says, I wish I accepted the advice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that I fasted three days each month. I wish I have accepted this. It is more beloved to me, it's dear to me, than my children, that my family and my wealth, the advice of the prophets also.
So he said, I wish I accepted the advice of moderation of the Prophet sallallahu and he was in anyway there are other wordings of the same Hadith.
And they mentioned basically that the Lebanon have not said this towards the end of his life because he could not sustain the same level of worship towards the end of his life. Okay, we'll take one more Hadith Insha Allah,
one MBA brilliant, humble letter. If not, it never will say de l keratin.

In the fifth decree, the Safa HUD commonly Mala Iike to Allah Furoshiki Allahu Allah Furoshiki Come on, up come. Well, I can hear hamdulillah
a satin wasa fella Thammarat. Our Muslim called who obey because the law will say David Amen Hamza or fettucine, whereby the higher on Maxalto Moshe, Dida, we're all who are first in our bill he was seen in momella teen I Lagenaria abna What by heart and my gosh, this hadith is collected by Muslim is from humble LD Allahu Anhu.
He says I met Abu Bakr one day. And he says, How are you today? hamdulillah and I said, humbler, has become a hypocrite, or has committed hypocrisy now for Hamdulillah. So Abu Bakr said, subhanAllah and that's, and that's a sunnah when you hear something, and it surprises you. You Say Subhan Allah SubhanAllah. So that's the Sunnah. He says, Subhan Allah Metical What do you say? I said, when we are with the prophets of Salaam, he talks about jinn and about the NA as if we see them with our own eyes. So once we leave the Prophet SAW Salem, we get engaged with our spouses, our children, our responsibilities, our business, and we forget a lot. So Abu Bakr, I mean, he said, I feel the same
thing I go through the same experience. So let's go and ask the prophets on them. So they go to the Prophet SAW Salem, and handle assisted the Prophet SAW Salem, I have, I committed hope, the hypocrisy of the Prophet and said, What's this? So he said, again, we are with you, you tell us about paradise and hellfire as if we see them with our own eyes. But then we leave. And we deal with our spouses or families or children or businesses, and it will work and we forget the prophets of salaam says,
By Allah if you remain in all your states all your times in the same state when you are with me
when I teach you about Allah and about Jana and about hellfire.
And it will get to a point where angels would shake your hands when you are in your beds and when you are walking down the street.
This is a very high state of spirituality when you are with me high state of certainty and Eman and the 15th when you are with Allah with the Prophet SAW. So now, you can't sustain this all the time. You humans are not designed in this life, to be able to live in that constant state of decline connection to Allah.
And if you remain on that you would simply you know what the word means? Angels would shake your hands in the streets and in your homes. What does that mean? That means you would start to lose your human nature, you will become more of an angelic nature because you are more weighted in your in the soul side of who you are.
So you'd start to lose your human even some of your physical nature you'd be able angels would start to shake your hands.
So he says this is not reachable. This state of you want to be completely like feeling the connection with Allah funny feeling at a high level of Eman all the time. This is unattainable for you as humans, then processes while working your humbler Saturn wasa What $100 An hour for this and an hour for that what that means, have you worship Have you liquor and have your moments with Allah subhanaw taala where you feel connected to Allah and you feel the Eman but you also have to do other responsibilities when you disengage from this and you engage with the physical world and the dunya this is how you are designed this is how you can survive. This is how you can sustain. So don't
think bad about the moments when you don't feel the high level of Eman as long as you do not fall into sin. As long as you do not fall into sin. So Saturn was some people say a one hour for Allah one hour do whatever you want. No, that doesn't mean this it means one hour for Allah which is complete connection with Allah. Another hour is doing your worldly obligations towards others where there is no sin.
I think we have time to have another Hadith so we can actually finish with this chapter.
where anybody I Bensenville the Allahu Anhu Makabe Nama and Nabil SallAllahu he was sending me to either whoever theologian call him for Salah and move a call about Islam in another one year poem efficiency wala Khaled. When I asked a little Lola you can learn why assume the call and maybe you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Morrow who failure to kill them all yesterday lavalier while you Tim musoma hula hula Buhari collected by Al Bukhari narrated by even a basketball the Allahu Anoma he said when the Prophet SAW Selim was giving hotbar he saw a man standing in the sun.
Asked about him who's this? Why is he standing over there? They said this is a man his cornea His nickname is aborted sloth in and it's the law in Israel as the name of the Prophet jacobellis. Salaam. It's the law in Israel the name of the Prophet yeah COHb Alayhi Salam. So they said this is Abu Salah a, he made an oath that he will stand all time
In the sun, he's not going to take sheet.
And he's not going to talk. He's going to fast.
Talk fast, so he's not going to talk. And he will also fast in terms of food, he will abstain all time. So the prophets of salaam says, approach him, command him, let him speak and let him take a rest in the shade and let him Let him sit down and let him complete his fast for today. Let him complete his fast for today. So the prophets of salaam did not like people who take excess in worship or approaching religion in a harsh manner, they want to reach the highest levels of religion overnight. So this is the chapter Inshallah, next time we will move to the next chapter. Just some comments on this chapter is Islam is about moderation. As you see from your Hadith of the Prophet
sallahu, wa salam, sometimes out of in good faith out of good intention we want when someone or when we start practicing Islam, we want everyone to start practicing Islam at the same level we are. So we expect too much from people. Also, when a non Muslim becomes a Muslim, or a Muslim, who has not been praying or fasting, and so on and so forth, they start coming to the message of the Start pray, they have a lifestyle,
a lifestyle that is probably too far from Islam, you can't expect them to give up their lifestyle overnight. Because this lifestyle is made of habits is made of emotional engagements is made of a law, it's a lifestyle, there are things these are things that you do automatically without even planning without consciously thinking about them. So expecting this person to become righteous overnight, and to reach a high level of righteousness is foolish, is simply foolish. People need time to make a transition. And the Prophet SAW Selim says in her the Dean MIT in filthy Rafi hibbett, this religion is very strong and demanding. So when you enter it, enter into it slowly,
gradually, incrementally, step by step, take your time. So don't expect yourself or anyone to reach the highest level of purity and worship and righteousness. And they start doing everything right over one week, over one month, over one year, over two years, over three years as well.
People keep struggling, you know, doing away with bad habits and bad things that they have.
Over here, sometimes over a lifetime, sometimes over a lifetime, even righteous people, if someone doesn't sit in front of you, that doesn't mean they don't have sins. It doesn't mean they don't have sins, they have sins. And the problem with us wanting to get someone to the highest level of righteousness overnight, and expecting that from them is that we set them up for hypocrisy.
Because if there's a high demand from the society, or the Muslim community, or the practicing people, high demand on people high expectations that in a short period of time, you start doing everything.
Humans cannot sustain this, humans cannot make that transition so quickly. So because they can't sustain this, what they will start doing is they will stop pretending
that they are there. They are actually not. They stop pretending and that's what hypocrisy is. So they start pretending doing things we're not then they stop pretending they make the MLA when they don't feel it, they're not ready for it. So they stop pushing themselves into it, they stop pretending they do it. And so on and so forth. In front of you, they start acting righteous, when they still struggling with some desires, when you are not around they will do these desires, and they will. And for example, they might, you might find them that they would approach women, they might have a girlfriend, but when you are there, oh, they're gonna hide this.
And that's the problem.
So as a community as well, we have to help the members of any community or any society as Muslims don't place high expectations on people.
People need to go through a gradual state of righteousness. They need to go through this. And there's no one perfect so expecting people to be perfect is actually it can it can it points that there is a serious defect with that society or that community. It's about pretense and about impression impression management. It's about pretending people pretending to be so righteous and so good. We humans have all sins. So don't pretend to be too righteous don't show so many expectations from people. But if you see something wrong, you can advise nicely and with a caring, empathetic heart that really feels for that person and once goodness not wants to prove I'm right, you're
wrong. I know you don't know or I'm at a higher level of righteousness because I don't have this mistake where you have the mistakes. You have the false in others authentic and lead from the profit center. It's very inch
This thing and it shouldn't be used as an excuse to do bad things. But to show that we humans are weak even no matter how much how righteous you see that person is you don't know what happens in their private life. You don't know about their hidden defects and faults and shortcomings you don't know the prophets also and says in any remote meaning them then you are we do Hubei in Al Fein and he will feign Attila truco Abaddon hotteok Allah.
The Prophet of Islam says, For every believing servant, there is a sin that he keeps coming back to over and over again he keeps keeps committing this, and he doesn't manage to break from it until he meets Allah till he dies.
So this is why it's important to realize this, that we human beings are weakness and if you have sinned, that you stuck with it, we have sins, seek forgiveness from Allah and ask Allah to save you from that sin and to help you break from it. And don't place high expectations on people, especially with issues where there are differences among the scholars today. And previously, we'll find some people having a discourse, when there's an issue where there's a dispute among the scholars, they'll say, I don't pay attention to this, we're among the scholars. That's what the Hadith says. But your understanding of the hadith is still deficient. Your understanding of the hadith is, is not full,
it's so superficial sometimes, and don't realize dispute among the scholars, the scholars, as we know them. The scholars of Islam, have always striven to arrive at the true meaning of the Hadith and the true meaning of the verse. So don't say I don't pay attention to the dispute among the scholars, if there is what we call falafel, Master self and accepted
dispute or disagreement among the scholars. You have to respect it, you can take the opinion that you will find to be more authentic or more in line with Allah and the Sunnah. But don't start making claims about people who follow other opinions, you need to respect this, as long as it's within that circle that we mentioned. You have to respect this, because you could be bordering into self righteousness where you claim the truth for yourself, and you see others as unable to see the truth or follow the truth or worse off that you think they refuse to follow the truth. These are serious issues. And as I said, all this kind of high expectations from people and some kind of surveillance
over people what they do and what he did in what she did and what he said on what they said and what they do in their private life. This kind of surveillance, it just paves the way for more hypocrisy and deception within any society or community. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us achieve real moderation in following Islam following thereby the Sunnah of the prophets Allah and he was an embolic. Alavi calm, so lots of them and he also had been selling
