My brothers and sisters in this episode, I want to go through another hadith of our mother eyeshadow, viola Juana, where she speaks of the supplications of the Prophet peace be upon him. We are so fortunate that someone lived with him. And someone saw all of this and someone heard and someone memorized someone use these words and conveyed it to others and they kept conveying it in a way that today it has come to us. We are talking about it here. And we will definitely learn it and convey to others as well our children and so on, so I shall be allowed the mother of the believers, may Allah be pleased with her. She says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught me this
dude. Wow, this is now teaching. He says he she says he taught her a doula a supplication. What was that? It must be a really brilliant to ask for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to tell his wife. I want to teach you something. What am I going to teach you? I'm going to teach you something that you can call out to Allah with what is it here goes Allahumma O Allah. In me as Luca, I am asking you meenal Hi, Erica Lee. From the goodness, all of it. So I'm asking you from goodness, all of it. I want all goodness or Allah. RG Li Jie Li that which is right now current that which is immediate, and that which is deferred, that which is later on? I want goodness from you, Oh Allah now and in
the future. That's what we're saying. Subhana Allah look at our beautiful this is this is just the beginning of a nice long, beautiful day, taught by Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to it shall of Allah Allah, Allah hum me, Luca minal heydrich li Jie Li, g v. O Allah, I am seeking from you, regarding goodness, all of it, that which is immediate, that which is deferred, ma Eileen to mean who am Allah, Allah Subhana Allah that which I know from it, and that which I don't know. This is powerful, because
goodness, a lot of the times we say, Oh Allah give me goodness. And when something happens, that might seem negative to us, but it is good. It's something we don't know is good for us. I want to give you a simple example that comes to my mind. There was a brother who lost a job. And he thought that was the worst thing that could have happened, not realizing that two years later, he two years of struggle later, he got another job that paid him 10 times more than the previous job. SubhanAllah had he not lost that job and been jobless for two years, he probably would have never had such a
Amazing package. It's only when you are convinced that what Allah does is the best that one day you will join the dots and you will be able to understand what Allah did in your life. So panela have conviction that Allah will provide, I always look at the ends. And I tell myself, Allah says in the Quran
fill out only Illa Allah Allah here is
indeed there is nothing that moves on the earth except that it is the duty of Allah to provide its sustenance.
It is upon Allah to provide its sustenance. So when I see these ants and I think to myself, an ant is so small, there are so many of these ends that we cannot see, we will not be able to see. And Allah says, I will provide for the ends. And I'm worried about myself who's so big I mean, if there were ends that had to fill my whole body, there might be billions of them. And I'm one person so big, so large you think allows me to miss me, Allah Akbar, no ways. If he did not miss an ENT, he's not going to miss you. Subhana Allah, he's going to provide for you. Be patient, keep trying work hard. eradicate your bad habits.
Brothers and sisters, many people want sustenance, they want goodness, they want things but they don't want to eradicate their bad habits. So they fall and they falter because they become distant from Allah, due to the sins they're committing and because of those sins, they lose goodness. But if you want the goodness you need to try to be as good as you can. May Allah make it easy for us?
So I shall the Allahu Allah is saying Subhana Allah something amazing. She's saying the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught me this.
Oh Allah, I asked you from the goodness all of it that which is immediate that which is to follow which means deferred. That which is now and in the future, that which I know from it, and that which I don't know from it. I want all that goodness, I want the goodness now I want the goodness in the future. I want that which I know I want that which I don't know. Imagine it sounds like a little child who's trying to just get everything for himself with Allah that is a bada. That is an act of worship, to do that with Allah is an act of worship Allah give me goodness now Give it to me later. Give me what I know about what I don't know about etc. Give it all to me. What are all the bigger
and I seek your protection, all the bigger I seek your protection, Michel Rican Lee, I seek your protection from all evil, regarding evil, all of it. I want you to protect me from all evil. Now you and I know when you when you receive goodness from Allah, there is jealousy, there is hatred, there is enmity, there is envy that might come in your direction because you've got and this is why don't boast and brag, don't show off. Don't be a show off. don't boast and brag. And don't try and show people what you have because they may not have and it might hurt their heart. They might look at you and say
and they didn't say Mashallah tabarrok Allah, Allah Allah if the hulten nataka Masha Allah, you can you can even affect your own stuff, your own goodness, your own gifts with
the evil eye, your own evil eye, because the in Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in South Africa have that you know, regarding the story of the person who had a beautiful garden given by Allah that had he not said Mashallah tabarrok Allah when he entered his own garden, he should have said Mashallah, Mashallah when he entered his own garden. So Lola is the hulten nataka Alta Masha Allah La quwata illa Billah You know, this is from Allah, the power and the mighty isn't belongs to none besides Allah, you relate the gifts you have from Allah subhanho wa Taala back to Allah subhanho wa Taala it's an amazing, beautiful way of looking at things so when you see something good, you say
Masha, Allah, Allah, you may want to say Allahumma barik that make a dua for Baraka and at the same time, related to Allah. It is achieved by saying Mashallah tabarrok Allah, that there is also alpha Baraka, it's also relating it to Allah, you may want to say Masha, Allah La quwata illa Billah that is in the Quran, it's made mention of and it's beautiful, it's in Surah calf. So when you get goodness as per the beginning of this draft, the next thing you need to do is seek protection from evil now, what type of evil evil that might take away that goodness right? Evil that might affect me What's the point of having goodness having goodness but then you've got tribulations, trials,
problems issues. So you're saying what are all the becoming a shared equally Jimmy Jimmy Hema, Eileen to mean who am Allah Allah, I seek your protection from all evil, that which is immediate and that which is deferred that which is now and that which is to come that which is in the present, and that which is in the future? That which I
No, and that which I don't know, sometimes we think something is good for us, we want it. If you make this to our alumni, keep it away from you, knowing that it's not good for you. So Han Allah Subhana, Allah, you want to purchase a car, the latest motor vehicle that goes 300 kilometers an hour, Allah doesn't want you to have it because he knows if you had it, you might drive it at such a speed that you may break your bones thereafter, it's not good for you. It's evil, it's bad. So you don't get it be happy with the decree of Allah, Allah has chosen something for you to be happy with what Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen for you. So she makes it to alpha goodness, she's taught to
make it to alpha goodness. And she is taught to make it to alpha protection from evil, all forms of evil. Now, I want to pause for a moment and tell you something very, very amazing. The words that were given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were miraculous. The supplications were miraculous. The words were miraculous, he says or lie to me, Kelly me, I have been given from among the gifts that I've been given. from among the miracles that I have, I have been given the power of short number of words, a small number of words, with great meaning jomi I'll kill him, it means words that have a very, very broad meaning, and they encompass a lot. So he used to use small words,
short phrases, but those phrases used to were so powerful, they would encompass so much. Look at this application, what has it encompassed? It's a simple thing. Oh, I would say Oh, Allah grant me goodness. Look at what the prophet says, Oh Allah, from goodness, I'm asking you all of it. That which is immediate, that which is to follow that which I know that which I don't know. So Allah, he has covered every aspect of it. There is nothing now that you need to think about everything is covered. Amazing. These are the words of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Then we have
the continuation of the same law that is being taught to eyeshadow the law when she says that he said,
My limb to mean who am Allah Allah, Allah whom in me as Luca mean Haley, Masha, Allah can AB Duca wanna be Yuka Subhana Allah, O Allah. I asked you all the goodness that your worship and your profit your slave and your profit referring to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam asked of you Allahumma inni iluka min Hailey masala? caminho AB Duca wannabe yoga, and in one generation, there is the word or the name Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Allahumma inni Luca Min hiree masa elica Abdu kawana bu cuando ration says minghui Abu kawana bu but the gist of it is the same. So Oh Allah, I seek from you. I am asking from you all the goodness that your slave and your nubby asked from you. Whatever
he asked from you in terms of goodness, give it to me to amazing Subhana Allah.
So this is a lovely way of putting it forward, taught by Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Oh Allah. I'm asking you all the goodness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked from you granted to me too, and it continues. The Prophet sallahu wa salam says, what are all the becoming? Are the big Abdu kawana beak, and I seek your protection from the same things that your messenger Your servant, Muhammad peace be upon him sought protection from if he sought protection from anything, protect me from the same. So the first part of it was all the goodness he's ever asked from you grant me to all the evil he's ever sought protection from protect me from it to Allahu Akbar. Look at this jomi old
killing a man who is the Nabhi of Allah, the most blessed of Allah He never ever needed to seek protection or to ask for goodness, he had all the goodness he was protected from all the evil etc. By Allah from Allah. He said these words and he's teaching his wife these words, and we are fortunate enough to have heard from his wife, or other your loved one her what these words were. And they're amazing words, they cover and encompass absolutely everything.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues, right? So far two things have happened. The eyeshadow, the low and high is asking for goodness, seeking protection from bad and then she is asking for everything good that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam asked, seeking protection from everything that he sought protection from. So those are two major aspects already dealt
With then she says that he taught me something Allahumma O Allah
in me as a local janitor Hama, la Herman Colin ramen, Oh Allah, I seek from you paradise. I seek from you paradise it's not good enough to just say I want paradise Allah grant me paradise meaning there is something more to it you need to work towards it so make the working towards it easy for me. Oh Allah, I seek from you paradise and every
word or deed that would lead to paradise. Oh Allah let my words and deeds be such that they would lead me to that paradise that I'm seeking from you Allahumma in local Jenna wama para la ha min Colin Rahman O Allah, I seek from you paradise, and anything that would bring me closer that would lead me to that paradise from statements and deeds, whatever I say and I do let it be a statement that would make me closer to gender and a deed that would make me closer to paradise. Amazing. This wording is absolutely divine. It's definitely from Allah subhanho wa Taala because now I need to protect myself from hellfire. The same way I'm asking I'm asking a lot to give me Jenna to make my
statements and my deeds those that will bring me closer to Jenna. I am now saying what are all will be coming in de la Cava la ha Minh Colin Rahman and I seek refuge in You from Hellfire and anything that would lead to it. Anything that would bring closer to it from my statements and my deeds, any deed, any statement that would bring me closer to Hellfire I seek your protection. I seek your protection from those deeds and those statements well as a Luca and tangela Kula Kava in Kavita who Lee Hara was a Luca and Allah Kula Kava in Kavita hooli, Hira and I asked you to make all the decrees that you have decreed for me only decrees of goodness, which means decree for me, goodness
only, Oh Allah, Oh Allah, I asked you to decree for me, goodness, you know, we believe in predestiny we believe in the decree. We believe that Allah has predestined things and we also believe that to certain extent, there is the scope of changing that particular or certain parts of that Allah like through through supplication and through charity. Subhana Allah when you are charitable, you can actually there is a certain element of change that could take place in your in what was predestined, although the knowledge of Allah is supreme, and he would already have known that you were going to make this to us. So this is what we were going to do for you or we did for you, as a result, or we
were going to be charitable or good or kind. So this is what we have done for you. So Subhana Allah,
it's Allah subhanho wa Taala, who is informing us and telling us about this. And we are asking Allah subhanho wa Taala we are actually asking ALLAH, Oh Allah, all that which you have decreed for me, make it good for me. Oh Allah, all that which you have made. All that which you have decreed for me, make it good for me. This is an amazing, beautiful. Now this drug is found in a double Morford. And also, a new manager has narrated it in his compilation, and it's the hadith of I shall have your love and I want to read repeat this whole draft from the beginning. Perhaps you may want to say it after me or with me. And I tell you, my brothers and sisters, the idea is to memorize it, to learn
it, perhaps write it down, maybe get a printout of a lot of these to us, and use them to call out to Allah and get the meaning as well done. I hope you've taken some notes while I was speaking, if not, no problem, you can always listen to this again, or you can always go and find it and get its meaning and inshallah use it to call out to Allah regularly because this is something that was taught by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Allahumma inni El Camino Federico Li Jie Li Jie Li, ma Lim to mean who am Allah Allah? What are you becoming a Sherry Cooley, he actually he jie Li, ma lm to mean who am Allah Allah Allahumma inni Luca hiramatsu, elica Allahumma inni Luca, Min,

We'll be coming in every woman Robert la Harmon Colin Rommel was Luca and Allah Kula Cava in Kavita who Lee Hira. I know I might have rushed that a little bit. But the benefit was for myself and for everyone else. I asked Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make this beautiful part of our routine. I mean, I want to move on to another job because we have so many of these applications that we will be covering throughout this entire series. And these episodes, really bless it. It is a narration of Abu huraira the Allahu anhu he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say, Allah humma O Allah, so this is a it's a supplication. What a beautiful supplication, asleep led me
asleep Lee Dini Levy, who is meant to Emily was literally dounia latifi hamara she was literally a healer tea and latifi Hama de el al-hayat asiya data leaf equally hail. Well motor Rohatyn LEE MIN Cooley shadow, beautiful Hadith in Sahih Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is making mention of something amazing
it's a hadith of Abu huraira Oh Allah make good for me my Deen make good for me my religion as lately Dini? Why? He's saying Why? Oh Allah make good for me my Deen that is the most important aspect of my affairs. The most important aspect of my affairs. It is something I'm supposed to be holding fast upon. Oh Allah make it easy for me make it good for me. As lately. Make good for me my Dean. That's the first part of the worried about the deen the religion, the following of Allah and His commands and his instructions are slightly Demian levy who is meant to me it is the most important part of my affair. It is the most important thing was lately dounia latifi hamachi and
make good for me, my world, the worldly life of mine make good for me, the world, the worldly life of mine, this dunya dunya. When we say dunya we refer to the world. A lot of the times it's talking about that which is material that which is to do with living rather than the spirituality of it, the spiritual part of it and the religious part of it is covered in the first part of the gap. Dini, my Deen my religion, my faith, my spirituality, my connection with Allah dunya is my connection with this worldly life I need to live I need to earn I need to eat and drink and so on a slightly dounia latifi Hama sheep. Oh Allah make good for me my dunya in which I have to live. So make it good for
me because I have to live in it. I have no choice but to live in it. That is a beautiful part of this lovely supplication.
And then we have the third part of this application was lately irati and Letty la Hammadi or a latifi Hammadi and oh, Allah, make good for me, my here after the place that I am going to be returning to.
Why am I asking you for goodness in my religion because it's the most important affair? Why am I asking you for goodness in my world and my worldly life? Because I have no option but to live in it. I have to live in it. Why am I asking you for goodness in my hereafter? Because that's where I believe I'm going Subhanallah I'm convinced conviction. I'm going to go there. Look at how all three aspects are covered in these powerful words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. inshallah, when we continue with the next episode, I will start off with this particular supplication and completed and go on to more of what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam has taught us from his
