Alright, it's not a clock. Let's get started. Let me turn these things on.
I was gonna do the clap
All right, take one. So I'm on a block with a lie that I can't do.
Because it is getting ready
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Allah had he was like me no one bad welcome to today's episode of Tara we truffles This is day 13 of Ramadan national lettermark Allah and if you start seeing the moon, it's looking really nice. So today I wanted to so we've been talking in the vision art class about, you know, JAWS and mental hurdles and today inshallah Tada I wanted to address one of these mental hurdles that comes up quite often. And that is somebody feeling bad for making job for dunya things like do you feel bad if you may die? Oh, like I need a new car. Do you feel bad if you said, Oh Allah, you know, blessed me with with a nice home, or Oh Allah, you know,
helped me get a better job that pays really good and stuff like that. Do you feel bad about that? That's what we're talking about today. So the verses that we bring up are in Susan buckler, and this is verse 200. And 201 Allah subhanaw taala says
that IE thou godly manners intercom says go home like Eddie Eddie gone
On in my yield
Donia has worked for me and it has worked.
So in these verses Allah subhanaw taala says, but either political monastic or consult the verses before this, we're speaking about Hajj and then Allah subhana wa Tada says, When you've completed your monastic, when you've completed your rights, that could alasa remember Allah, the way that you remember your father's or even more intensively or with greater remembrance? We're not going to talk about that today. We're gonna talk about the next part of the
feminine Nessie mania portal and from the people are though, are some people who say, bene attina Dunya Oh our LORD give us in this world. And that's the end of their dark. There are some people who say or or Lord give us in this world one man
holla and as for the hereafter, they have no share. There's nothing for them in the hereafter. They never asked Allah subhanaw taala for it, and there's nothing for them. And then Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, I'm in and from those people and from people are making a Kulu to say about banner ads enough in dunya Oh, our Lord raised us who brought us up Rob banner, our Lord, ads in our feed. Dunya Hassan, give us Hassanal give us goodness in this life will feel filthy Hasina in in the hereafter give us Hassan it working out other than now and protect us from hellfire.
So here's something interesting right off the bat really beautiful. And that is
another mental hurdle when it comes to door. Some people think that because they've committed sins that Allah is not going to hear their daughter or Allah doesn't answer their door. And if you look in the yearbook, it says that this is proof that Allah answers the door of everyone. So even a disbeliever who only prays for dunya and doesn't care about the hereafter and doesn't ask Allah for the hereafter, Allah still gives that person even if a Catherine asked Allah subhanaw taala just believe her asked Allah subhanaw taala for just dunya and they don't believe in the hereafter Allah would give them and so how about somebody who believes in the hereafter believes in Allah and is
asking for forgiveness for sins and asking goodness in this life, and in the hereafter Allah answers everyone's draw
there's actually another another part to that thing and
this person who is only asking Allah for the dunya they have no lofty place that if you don't ask Allah for the hereafter, that Allah will not give it to you. This person is not asking for the hereafter. And so Allah Subhan without it doesn't give it to them. But the except But alas, Panasonic still answers their daughter in the dunya. So the exciting part is that
if you did ask Allah for a lofty place in the Hereafter, Allah would give you a lofty place because Allah answers the door of the one who calls upon. It doesn't matter if they're Muslim or not Muslim and it actually doesn't matter. So here's the thing.
It's a sign also that just because this is a little scary to me
Just because you got your dog answered in the Dunya doesn't mean Allah loves you. That's a deep one. And I know that might cause some mental issues for some people. But understand this just because Allah answers a person's dog in the Dunya doesn't mean that Allah loves them. So here we see that Allah subhanaw taala is talking about disbelievers who disbelieve in the Hereafter, but they pray to Allah and Allah gives them but they, Allah will not give them the hereafter. Allah gives them from the dunya, just like they asked, and Allah will not give them the hereafter. But the good news understanding that the same concept that just because you make dua for Dunya doesn't mean Allah love
you. But it also shows us that if a person if a believer makes doc for the Afghan, this is the kingdom of Allah subhanaw taala the the generosity of Allah Allah answers the one who calls upon so just like a disbeliever would get their dog as a believer if they pray for you know what I want the hereafter know what comes to mind
is, is one of the companions serve the prophets of Allah. They said, I'm the province of a lady who said, I'm asked him, What would you like me to make dua for for you, what would you like, and this companion and all the things that he could have asked for? Because what you asked for Allah is going to answer this the Messenger of Allah gonna make dua for him, and he's gonna get it. And then the companion said, I wish to be with you in paradise, like and the prophets have a lightness and I've said, Is there anything else? And the Prophet and the companion said, No, that's it. And then a last part and then the prophesies and I'm saying so then help me against yourself by catheter distribute
by praying a lot make and praying to Allah subhanaw taala.
these people say, I don't want to add seen academia, or Allah give us do and give us in this dunya will lie. In the next verse, we're going to see that Allah praises those who say are better acting after dunya Hasina? So I have this question. I'm wondering, what's the difference between
disbeliever saying, Oh, my God, give me good in this dunya sorry, give me dunya. And the believer says, Give me goodness in the dunya. See, there's a difference between the two drawers. One is asking for dunya. The other one is asking goodness in the dunya. Well, Allah Allah, when, when somebody is only focused on the dunya, they don't actually care what kind of dunya they get. So it could be halal or haram. It could be Hey, you know what, I got this, I got this dunya from stealing from people doesn't matter. I got this dunya. You know, whatever happens, I just got it. They're just focused on the dunya. But you'll see a believer sometimes, interestingly, like, here's a
believer who's not involving himself or herself into their best interest, and then they see somebody else involving themselves in interest or involving themselves in something haram. And it seems like they're being successful in the dunya. Have you ever seen a Muslim like that? Or maybe you've been in that situation, and you think, man, if I only got involved in a little bit of haram, I would have been more successful in the dunya. And so you'll see the difference between these doors, one is only asking for dunya. And the other one is asking the dunya Hassan is asking goodness in the dunya so it's not any Vineya that a person is making the offer a believer makes it offer what we actually
want goodness in the goodness in the dunya.
And let me give you an example of what it means to have has in the next verse, while minimum and from the people are those who say about bene attina for dunya Hasina or our LORD give us in this dunya hasna goodness in Hassan Hassan like good deeds has an
has a net dunya hasn't give us goodness in this life will fill after it has an in the hereafter has not goodness in the hereafter what can either but not and protect us from hellfire protect us from hellfire.
So what does it means to have hasna in this life, so you have things like handle income. So again, somebody might have Herlong income this person you know what they have a hard job and in their focus on kind of Hello income or righteous spouse. So not only just any spouse but a spouse that helps guide this male or female to paradise and to goodness in this life. So that's Hasina in the dunya blessing children coolness of the eyes everyone would wish for for their children to worship Allah soprano Ivana and to go to Paradise and be united with them in the hereafter. That's part of the hustler of this dunya beneficial knowledge. So when we are making dua for husband and the dunya
we're asking Allah subhanaw taala for beneficial knowledge, knowledge that benefits us and good blessed deeds and we will
on a life of doing good things, and earning Allah subhanaw Donnas favor, or better attina for dunya Hasina. Now what does it mean when we say Well Phil, filthy Hassan and goodness in the Hereafter. And so when a person dies and during the grave and they're being asked from the angels the questions so it's protection in the grave on the in the standing in front of a low on Yama, Yama when everybody's raised up, and they're open the protection chain of Allah subhanaw taala. That's goodness in the hereafter being saved from hellfire. As we'll see the next time I'm going to tell you a little bit about the Okinawa non part. But Allah subhanaw taala being pleased with this
person, Allah subhanaw taala entering this person into paradise, this person coming closer to Allah subhanaw taala being able to see Allah in paradise, all of that is will fill effort as a husband and goodness in the hereafter what an amazing dua that Allah subhanaw taala teaches us to make encompasses all the goodness of everything that we're going to come across in the dunya and all the goodness and protection in the hereafter are bad enough or didn't have enough fantastic but there's a third location that we need protection from and that's hellfire. What can you not either but not you know, sometimes people tell me something like, oh is making dogs like just setting goals and in
goals when person set goals are SMART goals, Specific, Measurable, Attainable time, but that kind of stuff. When a person setting goals, nobody ever sets goals to like, you know what I need to protect myself from hellfire. That's not part of goal setting. That's the HA that's your connection to Allah. So there's another level there. But here Allah subhanaw taala when every single person will pass over hellfire. So instead of Maryam This is verse 71. A last Pentagon it says what in America in lawani do have and there's none of you except that will pass by it. And so every single person and that's an increase May Allah Subhana Allah protect us from hellfire. It's an increase. So Jenna
isn't just you know where you go from this life and then you see Jenna and you don't know what Allah subhanaw taala saved you from before you get to Jana before I'm gonna get to Jana inshallah Tada before any of us get to Jana, we're going to have to pass by hellfire. And we don't know if we're going to fall in or not. And we don't know if you know as the prophets of Atlantis and I'm said some people will cross, cross the Sirat the bridge, they will like lightning, some will go walking, some will go crawling.
And some will fall.
May Allah protect us. And so when a person is saved from hellfire, that's the ultimate success. So more than I know, because when we think about Jannah when we think about paradise, we usually only think of it as hey, this dunya and amazing paradise, but we forget that passing over the bridge and seeing hellfire. This is hellfire. May Allah protect us and and then imagine the excitement, the magnified excitement and the magnified happiness when a person not only gets agenda but understands for real what they were saved from from hellfire, how much more gender that's something you can't even imagine how much more your your happiness will be for entering paradise.
The Prophet said a lot I said I'm one. This is my final point prophets that a lot of you send them when people go to Mecca.
Unless fentanyl make things easy and open doors and protect us from this virus when people go to Mecca. And I remember you know, when I was really young and it was my first time going to the Kaaba, and as soon as I got out of the taxi, this is like in the 1990s and I saw people selling
booklets, these little blue booklets for like five riyals or something like that that had doors to off doors and I thought yeah man I need some of those 12 dots
that what what do I need to say when I go for a walk? But later when I learned I realized that there's nothing recorded that the prophets of Allah said to me dot for interlock except one door. But so two things it's an open book when you go for 12 You make the dogs that come from your heart you don't have to read from a book it's coming from your heart What do you want to make dog for profit I said I'm didn't you know there's not like ritual you have to do all these different dogs. There's not but there is one dog the prophets of about a cinema was heard and reported that he said it while making tell off it's the Wonder Ah, that's recorded that he said and he used to say, um,
there's the Blackstone corner of the kava and then before that is the Yemeni corner and between the Yemeni corner and
In the black stone corner, the prophets of Allah Ma said I'm used to say
Tina dunya Hasina or Phil Aphrodite has worked in
the way Allah subhanaw taala taught us to see this dog. And it's a special message for people I know as, as, as a community.
As a community, sometimes there are people who in our community about Muslims community, that that pray for the akhira and be little themselves and others who pray for the dunya and that's misguidance because Allah subhanaw taala told us to pray for dunya for dunya Hasina, and then you have other people whose focus is all about dunya dunya dunya and they don't really care about the hereafter or it's not in the top of their mind and whatnot. There's still Muslim Inshallah, tada. They still care about the hereafter, but they're not making a top of their mind and, and the way that they make dogs shows that they don't care that much about the hereafter in both sides. We need
to learn to make dog for dunya and we need to learn how to make dua for the ASPCA. We bring both of them and we also increase in our
desire to seek protection from hellfire
Allah to Allah Allah
and that's it I'm done. If somebody has a question
you're welcome to ask
who's got a question?
Ro Shan Zulfikar says have
have one question as far as I know that Almighty Allah forgives all sins. What about backbiting? Does Allah forgive by fine even if we don't get forgiveness from that person?
Back then because sometimes it doesn't get so easy to tell that person thanks for for me.
Okay, so can a person
does Allah forgive so the one sin that Allah subhanaw taala doesn't forgive is Schimke is associating partners with Allah. And that's if the person dies with that sin because even in the dunya, Allah will forgive all sins if a person repents from it in the dunya. So, sin and murder, all of these things are forgiven, backbiting. Part of the
part of you know, when you're a person seeking repentance, is if there's something owed to somebody else, like, let's suppose somebody stole $1,000. And then they asked Allah for forgiveness, but they still have the $1,000 with them in their hands, they need to give it back. That's like a right owed back to that person. And maybe it could be they put it in an envelope and they leave it in the person's, you know, under their door or something and then they just go away. You don't have to show that they're the ones who did it. What you're talking about with regards to Backbiting is, it's not always that you have to tell the person, I did this horrible thing to you. Please forgive me,
because that might actually cause more fitna more harm by telling the person so if you can ask the person for forgiveness, Alhamdulillah do so. If it will cause more fitna Allah knows best. You know, you ask Allah for forgiveness and you hope that person can forgive you. But you don't cause more fitna by speaking it aloud to the person and you might hurt them.
Let's go shamila
What should I do when you realize the one in the heavens has heard and answered your door? You are filled with joy and gratitude. How do you express that gratitude? We didn't want him to tolerate truffles. I don't remember where about sugar and thankfulness and how it is?
Yeah, it was what's the difference between Hammond and Chaka and hamdulillah versus shook chakra Allah right Shaka is thankfulness when something happens to you at hand is it doesn't matter if anything happens to you. at hand is the consistent situation and characteristic of Allah that All praise belongs to him. So sugar what you're talking about is sugar is an action. And if Allah subhanaw taala blesses you with something you can do Shaka with your tongue, sugar with your body you can do sagittal Allah Spano Tata, you can do Shaco to with you know, giving charity and thankfulness you don't have to do but you could. But
I think what you're saying is how do you party?
Don't think about it too much. I think he may be going into much detail about that. It's like relax, think a lot and do what He commands and stay away from
I'm looking to see what is possible
Janina says is mustard received dark corners in third winter a third record of which
so it depends on what you're talking about and
in like Chef a if you see at the cabinet the Haram and stuff like that and Mecca no you don't have to it's not compulsory it's not a must. Obviously you should but it's not a must you can pray with her without doing that. But I don't know where you're from and maybe your local Imams will have a different opinion
and I love how can you help him the questions in the video? Yes, it's cool right? One of the problems I don't know how to unpin it though, trying to unpin it but like I don't know how that's done
Hello, my big brother
we've got nine minutes somebody has a question
see colleague said somebody told me that if you fast during Ramadan
Somebody told me that fasting Ramadan, but did not pray the proper way or fasting into oz will go to waste. But we'll but you said now states are what you said now states otherwise.
So generally speaking, if you do one act of worship, and you don't do another, they're separate things that are separate things, meaning that if somebody fasted, and let's suppose they didn't do their salah, they didn't do their prayer, then maybe somebody told you that.
I see where the problem is. So I think what you're talking about you did not pray the proper way. You're not talking about are you talking about praying, like, Oh, you're not praying correctly, or you're just not praying and Paul, something like that. If somebody wishes to come closer to a loss of power data, and they're not perfect, and all the commandments of Allah, but they're trying that unless God knows the sincerity of the person knows that they're trying to be better knows that you're trying to do something good. So I wouldn't discourage them and tell them hey, you're fast, you're fasting doesn't count. So you might as well just stop fasting. That's not the correct way.
Instead, whoever told you this should say, Hey, let me show you how to, you know, make your prayers a little bit better so that there's better increase over the last month I've been pleased with the because all of these things are commandments of Allah. I think it just takes maybe needs a better more wise approach.
Zara's question are we supposed to pays a cat on the jewelry that we use? Generally speaking, obviously, there's a big difference of opinion about you know jewelry that we use, should you pays a cat on it? And my opinion is yes, you should.
Yes, you should pay as a cat on jewelry. So what you do is weigh all your jewelry. After weighing all the jewelry, if you weigh all your jewelry, their stuff in your jewelry, that's not gold. But I'm telling you just to make it easier for you weigh all your jewelry, if they're over the nisab
I don't know what the nisab is right now. But if they're over nisab means like, if they're over like a certain amount of jewelry, like you got a lot of jewelry, you drop it down
and then pay 2.5% of that. Here's a suggestion though. You don't have to pay that in cash. Some women have like a lot of gold, but they don't have money. And so all you need to do is like take maybe that gold and give it to charity. So you can go to a poor person and give them the goal. Like hey, here's one wrist bands. You go to a poor family in your village and stuff like that. Here's a gap and you give that gold piece to that poor, needy person. A lot of so you don't have to pay it in
Catch you compared Pinnacle 2.5%
Barrett says why is it that so many people hold on to the belief of dunya Diaz being bad? I think that that's cultural. Because there are some cultures like that it isn't it isn't a big deal and other cultures where it is a big deal, like they make an issue of it. So one brother one time, he was telling me oh, I have this really nice car, and I feel like it's dunya and then I asked him, What kind of car do you have? And he's like, he had a Lexus. That was like six years old. And I'm like, Are you serious? You're embarrassed about that car? I thought you had like a Lamborghini you just got a normal car. But he comes from a community that it's like that's their style that if you
show up to the masjid with something nice, they bring you down now it's their culture but they try to save this lands culture and and that's why I think that it really kind of it's a cultural thing and then let's suppose you come to Middle East country you come to our Arab country and there are up and they know Arabic and stuff but they don't have problem or like people drive nice cars it's no big deal because they know it's not doesn't say you can't have nice things. Islam doesn't say that and culture and and they're also in a culture that doesn't look frowned down upon those things. Because they just haven't adopted that culture.
I think it's a culture
got three more minutes who's got a question? Hey, anybody from YouTube or Twitter? I'll give you a special status
YouTubers and Twitter's.
Someone did a major sin such as Ripa and now feeling remorse. How can you ask Allah forgiveness from such things as credit cards and mortgages. So
we all commit sins, that's number one. It's not one person has committed a sin. And everybody else is like, Oh, you committed a sin. We all commit sins. And the best people commit sins are those who repent or less pantile the most. The thing with the rebel type of sins is that they're like ongoing mortgages are like 30 years or credit cards take multiple years before so the person almost like they have to live with that sin for such a long period of time. If we're talking about mortgages, 30 years, it could be like a person's dealing with this for such a long period of time. So some ideas could be that maybe for the person and the mortgage that they might try to get out of it and and
seek a halal Halal version. I know that might be hard. And if it's too hard for a person at the moment that might cause them to not want to do Toba. That's not what I'm saying. But if you do understand it, and you really do want to like, yeah, it's a hard road, but I feel like my man I can I can handle that, then that might be the solution. Let me get out of this. And even if I have to rent or I take a financial hit in the beginning, until that time, it would be better for me, there was a brother who, you know, in one of my classes afterwards, he was like he wanted to get out of mortgage and get out of the service is not like I don't want to be stuck in paying me rebuff like 30
years and then this is what happened to me came I think it was a couple of months later he came later, he had this sincere intention. He got rid of get rid of the mortgage and then his principal was returned back to him and he had like a huge amount of principal returned back to him when he got out. And then he rented a house that was like three times bigger. It was his dream house and him and his family had so much extra wealth that they were able to go for Hajj and Umrah and and everything turned out good for this for this brother because he said you know what, I'm going to try and turn back to Allah Subhana Allah and Allah subhanaw taala Open Doors amazing doors like I said I want to
emphasize once again not everybody has kind of like the the fortitude to go through a really difficult journey like that to get out of mortgage and whatnot but if you feel you're up for it, and you know other people are on board with you then inshallah Tada maybe that's what needs to happen is a person needs to backtrack out of these things.
Well La Hotel
