Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi wa Kapha wa salam O Allah I read the Ladino stuffer let's see him and Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira. The viewers everywhere will come to the 78th episode in the series of Guardians of the pious. Today in sha Allah is the second episode in the 13th Chapter of the auto Salah hain, the chapter which is dealing with explaining the numerous ways of doing good and righteous deeds. In the previous episode, we have a chance to explain the ayat which an Imam will know away and may Allah have mercy on him listed in the beginning of the chapter.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:27

And inshallah today we'll begin right away with the first Hadith in the list of a hadith of the shutter, the first Hadith, which is number 117.

00:01:29 --> 00:01:59

is narrated by a very, very early Allah who won an Emmy is there in room that evening junetta Radi Allahu Anhu call upon to ya rasool Allah, He will Amelie Afghan color. And Iman will be la he was the head of he's a really cool to AU Rickerby Afghan call and first of all her and her were accepted her feminine call to fail and a fall or lettering Usonian altos now with a

00:02:00 --> 00:02:58

call to rasool Allah or ATIA in bar off to andharban Iman, Kyla Taku foreshore Raka and in us for in sadhaka to Minca Allah Neff sick, I was referred in May Allah be pleased with him, the rated that I asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which action is best. And the Prophet peace be upon him said Al Eman will Billa once you head off, he said really faith and belief in Allah to believe in His Oneness and to struggle in his way to perform jihad in the way of Allah. I asked him Which neck and the neck refers to the slave, which slave is best to free. So the Prophet sallallahu ala SlMs ate that which is the rest of them in price and most valuable of them to its masters.

00:02:59 --> 00:03:03

I asked him why if I cannot afford it,

00:03:04 --> 00:03:40

if I cannot afford to free a slave neck, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said didn't help a laborer or work for one who's disabled? I asked, What if I cannot do it? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then you should at least restrain yourself from doing wrong to people, because it serves as a charity which you bestow upon yourself. The hadith is collected by both al Bukhari and Muslim so we can say it is agreed upon its authenticity.

00:03:42 --> 00:04:16

Among is a set, which we discussed in the previous episode in the chapter the numerous ways of doing good deeds. And I saw it as a result as a result in which Allah subhanaw taala says to me Yama, me myth Carl has gotten higher on Euro whosoever does any good, even if it is equivalent to and atomweight something very little shall see it will be recorded. And Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Al Baqarah 215 One at a file woman hiring for in the lobby Eileen, the word higher is anonymous Nicola,

00:04:18 --> 00:04:59

which means any goodness, big or very low, Whatsoever you do have righteousness. Allah is fully aware of it. Indeed, Allah acknowledges and Allah is fully aware of it and Allah will reward you for it. And also in Surah Al Baqarah says what matter for Holloman hiring Yalom hula which provides the same meaning that Allah is fully aware of it. Man AMI la sala Han fell in se whosoever does good right his deeds, it is for the benefit of himself. So seize the opportunity of your life. Try to build up an asset of your good deeds as much as possible in this hadith I was referring to May Allah be pleased with him

00:05:00 --> 00:05:14

As the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam about which deed is best, and as you know, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had been asked repeatedly, a similar question, which deed is best? In the case of

00:05:15 --> 00:05:35

Abdullah His name is Ruth may Allah be pleased with him. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned along with Amen. Offering the prayer on its fixed time being faithful to your parents here and abuse Allah Allah Allah selama sit with a referring Eman belief in Allah subhanaw taala then he joined al Jihad along with Al Eman.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:42

It will claim may Allah have mercy on him says, Al Jihad has four levels.

00:05:43 --> 00:06:32

Do you have enough to perform jihad against your inner desire to try to overcome your women desire to struggle against what your self desires of what is forbidden. This is of course the greatest type of jihad, and a person will not be able to observe jihad on the battlefield. Why his weapon himself and his world unless if he was able to overcome his inner desire and purify himself first, so do you have enough then the struggle or jihad against Satan's and the third is jihad against the non believers the enemies of Islam, which consists of non believers. And the fourth is jihad against them on africaine or the hypocrites which will be by the word, so long as they show Islam, even

00:06:32 --> 00:06:42

though they conceal the hidden intention of disbelief, but as long as they say, La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah, then you cannot point a sword or a weapon to them.

00:06:44 --> 00:07:05

You have the neffs as it Nakaya May Allah admits to him side by teaching oneself the guidance and forcing himself to follow the means of guidance by learning what is prohibited and forcing oneself to abstain from what is prohibited. And this practice is indeed a jihad is not something that you

00:07:06 --> 00:07:56

do with with ease. No, it is a matter of struggle, as Allah subhanaw taala says, the M. Mandala will SRL higher the dunya for nlgja Hema he and mega watt mmm Hoffa McLemore Robbie when I had NAFSA annual Howard for in Elgin at the heel Malwa the person who would do that as a result of fearing the standing before Allah subhanaw taala and know that I will have to, to answer the questions concerning all of that. So out of this fear, he restrains himself from complying with his inner desire with his loss. And he abstained from falling into what Allah has prohibited as a result for internal Jannetty and then Paradise would be his abode. Jihad against Satan, by resisting two

00:07:56 --> 00:08:39

things, the doubts and the desires which are the shaytaan will cast into the heart of the believer in order to make him deviate and stray from the safe path of Allah subhanho wa taala. So Nabil Salah Alia selama, say the first and the second of the best deeds is to believe in Allah and His struggle in his way and we learn that it is not limited to struggle or fight on the battlefield. But the four levels of Nakai may Allah have mercy on him also said that the best behavior is if the person can achieve the full levels of jihad, struggle against his inner desire and overcome it.

00:08:41 --> 00:09:35

In the nasally, monotone, be su Illa Mara Hammurabi, so you overcome himself and his desires and whims and then overcome Satan. Then thirdly, whenever it is required and needed, he's willing and he actually does fight for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala on the battlefield, spending out of his wealth, given his life as sacrifice for Allah and for his Deen so perfecting the four levels of jihad is the ideal behavior of a believer Eman. Billahi. What you had on feasability Isogen. Then the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam was asked by a Buddha really referring me Allah be pleased with him after he mentioned the best of deeds as a man was you had a will that really fairy right away

00:09:35 --> 00:09:48

inquired about something. It seemed that they have discussed it earlier. And abuse Allah Allah Allah Selim repeatedly mentioned the virtues of freeing the slaves in the Quran,

00:09:50 --> 00:10:00

alpha Kurkova with regards to freeing the slaves. This is really something that Allah Almighty appreciates and in addition to the

00:10:00 --> 00:10:52

Prophet sallallahu Alia selama said whoever free is a slave, Allah Almighty will free for each and every bone of that slave, one of his bones of the female from free from what you feed a slave from slavery and you made him or her a free man, Allah subhanaw taala will give you freedom and protection against the farfel. But now the question which is presented by a Buddha referee, which slave is best to free, if somebody and we know that in the past, and until recently, slavery was something like very common, and people would have 100 200, you know, depends on their wealth of slaves. So in the view, Salah Salem appointed mini Ransomes Kapha rot for certain sense as freeing

00:10:52 --> 00:10:56

the slaves in order to encourage the believers freeing the slaves.

00:10:57 --> 00:11:07

And that is also mentioned in the Quran, for instance, refer to the harder ones, the ransom for pronouncing the word of Avraham the ransom for

00:11:08 --> 00:11:39

one's oath, if he failed to fulfill it, one's vow if you fail to fulfill it, and the ransom is mentioned, the kuffaar is mentioned in Surah. Al made so the question is now if I'm due to free a slave, which neck and the neck is a part of the body of every individual, right? So sometimes we refer to the body by referring to one of its parts or body parts, the head, the neck,

00:11:41 --> 00:12:00

the right hand, so say in a Euro cover, it was very well understood that the law cover refers to the slaves, which Nick is better to free. Like if I'm going to free already, then which one would Allah Almighty like for me to sit free?

00:12:01 --> 00:12:41

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam answer saying and vessel her in the earlier work Thoreau has seminar, which means the most valuable to its masters, and the most expensive, I believe, no matter male Hatami a lot of leaves at him interpreted this practically, by looking into the best of his worth and giving it any charity. So for innocence amongst the incidents which happened with him that he had a slave girl whom he liked a lot. Because of this hadith, he set her free despite the fact that he loved her. And also about the May Allah will tell her may Allah be pleased with him.

00:12:42 --> 00:13:07

Who heard what Allah subhanho wa Taala said in surah Allah Imran and number 90 to lend 10 l will build a habitat and feel cool Memento hipbone you will not attain piety and righteousness, unless if you spend in a charity of what you love, what you prefer to covet and possess. So because you love it, you give it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:13:08 --> 00:13:50

I think that confirms the meaning of the Hadith. So I will tell her May Allah lives with him came to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and say the rasool Allah the HSA is so and so. And the best of my worlds is my rehab, which is a garden close to unmeasured. Inevitably, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to live to visit some times and drink from its water spring and eat from its foods. Very, very pleasant garden full of the palm trees full of fruits. He said, This is the part which I love most of my wealth, you are rasool Allah, I'm giving it away in a charity. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala said, You will not attain righteousness until you really spin off that which you

00:13:50 --> 00:14:26

love. So the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is a man or word, man Mel Robbins. This is a very profitable worth a very profitable investment, to give to Allah subhanaw taala the part which you love, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said, I suggest that you should distribute it amongst your relatives, which relatives, the rule the poor relatives of Abu Talha, may Allah be pleased with him. Here we'll see how their companions reacted innocently, with any guidance that comes from the Quran or from the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, without any hesitation. Why?

00:14:28 --> 00:14:59

Because they were certain that these promises from Allah or from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are absolutely true. And whatever you give Allah will give you a better not just in the Hereafter, but in the life of this world. So the Hadith brothers and sisters addressed some of the best deeds to believe in Allah to smuggle in his cause. And whenever there was slavery, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam suggested that to free the slaves as much as

00:15:00 --> 00:15:40

You can and the best of those whom you free, the dstu and the most expensive. Then the Prophet sallallahu sallam was asked again, by a Buddha really fairly, may Allah be pleased with him. And that shows you Subhanallah the patience of the teacher, and the greatest teacher is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, and also the keenness of the students presented in the form of Abu Dhabi referring may Allah be pleased with him. In this example, the keenness to learn more, especially when you see the teacher in a good mood, and he's been patient with you. So he's willing to answer more questions. Because of that the whole owner benefited not just the Kushner, Abu they're

00:15:40 --> 00:15:54

referring me I love you please within passed away already more than 1400 years ago. But now, the whole OMA will continue to benefit from the answers and advices of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, to me they're referring may Allah be pleased with him?

00:15:56 --> 00:16:39

Well, then the fairy did not have slaves sad, rasool Allah What if I can afford it? Why if I don't have slaves, and I cannot afford it, then the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam provided him with another great deed. He said, Salah Salem Torino, Sonian. Altos now will occur. And this statement is very illiquid. And it also indicates a great guidance. The preference is to help somebody who's really working a laborer, when somebody says, Brother, I have a factory, or I'm doing this job, and I'm broke, I need some money in order to complete the mission, and I will pay you back soon as I finish it, this person is more worthy with the assistance than a person who doesn't do anything. And

00:16:39 --> 00:16:47

a beggar who doesn't have a job to earn or Sanyang. So he began by assisting somebody who's already working a laborer.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:48

You know,

00:16:50 --> 00:16:59

when I see beggars in the seats, I'm reluctant to give them any charity. Why? Because most of them take this as a job

00:17:00 --> 00:17:46

to profit out of it. Basically, they are in need, maybe they're much richer than I am. While whenever I see a laborer is carrying bricks or carrying sand in the construction, or whatever, this person, even though he doesn't ask, but his condition can tell you, his clothes, the kind of clothes that he's wearing, the kind of job that he's doing. He's lifting heavy weight going upstairs, not in the elevators, several stories high, and so on. You figure out this guy who's working for for very little payment every day is definitely in need. So he doesn't have to ask. And you don't have to ask him whether he is in need or not. Because basically, if he's doing the job, it indicates that he has

00:17:46 --> 00:18:04

to do it because he's in need. So he's more worthy of your assistance than the baggers l TAS not only o'clock or you help somebody who is disabled and he is worthy of assistance is in need. There are many ahaadeeth talking about the virtues of helping others

00:18:05 --> 00:18:06

helping people

00:18:07 --> 00:18:14

you know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in one Hadith, let an engineer if he had that he actually had to Aqaba Allah Who

00:18:16 --> 00:18:33

to assist one of my brothers to fulfill his needs until he fulfills it until his case is over and his need is done. is better for me and better before Allah subhanaw taala then is staying in my method in Attica for a whole month

00:18:34 --> 00:18:59

eleatic F is to see them every day or night. And that means you will observe the five daily prayers in which method the message of the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, in which each prayer is 1000 times better than praying anywhere else except in mercy the Hara. So one month, a whole month, times five, we're talking about 150 prayers

00:19:00 --> 00:19:53

150 prayers, times 1000. That's better than 1000 prayer offered anywhere else. And the real Salah on his enema says to assist somebody to fulfill his need until he achieves it is better than staying attic in Attica. In my masjid, for a whole month. Our deen is about cooperation, helping one another, assisting each other. And this is also some sort of jihad. The last advice is when he said what if I can't afford it, he said taco for sure Raka and Enos to stop harming people to protect people against your harm. That is indeed a charity for from you, for yourself upon yourself by not harming people even though you have the capacity to do so is also an act of charity. Inshallah,

00:19:53 --> 00:19:59

we'll take a short break and we'll be back in a few minutes to continue with another new Hadith in the chapter. Please stay tuned.

00:20:03 --> 00:20:04


00:20:09 --> 00:20:10


00:20:16 --> 00:20:17


00:20:19 --> 00:21:12

salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu and welcome back. The upcoming hadith is Hadith number 118 in the entire series, and it is the second in the 13th chapter chapter of the numerous ways of doing good and righteous deeds. The hadith is narrated by the same companion abou very, very probably Allah Who an abuser, probably Allah Juan. Narrated and Allah so Allah Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam makan us be who Allah Cooley Shula mean a honeycomb sadaqa for cool Lotus V. Hatton. Sadaqa Kulu tell me that in sadaqa Cullotta li lettin sadaqa we're cooltech be rotten. Sadaqa Well, I'm Ruben ma Rufio sadaqa when I hear Nathaniel Moon carryall Saba while you're JC Omega Lika raka

00:21:12 --> 00:21:28

Annie our car woman Amina boo ha ha ha Muslim wizardly fairy may Allah be pleased with him, the rate that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when you get up in the morning charity is due from every one of your joints.

00:21:29 --> 00:21:34

There is a charity in saying Subhan Allah,

00:21:35 --> 00:22:27

Glory be to Allah Subhan Allah free from any imperfection and insane Alhamdulillah Praise be to Allah and thanking Allah. This is an act of charity and insane La Ilaha illa Allah which is expressed about by saying Lila the healer is a singular of the allele is the saying of la ilaha illa. Allah is known as the allele we'll call Newtec be Ratan sadaqa and insane Allahu Akbar, Allah is Great magnifying Allah Almighty is an act of charity. And enjoying in what is right is an act of charity, forbidding what is evil is an act of charity. These are numerous ways of doing good in order to come up within our thanks and gratitude for the blessings of a Solana the joints, while

00:22:27 --> 00:22:58

you're dizzy Omen Zelicah Allah cottony your car a woman in Abuja, which means that the tour account of the Doha, the phone on prayer is equivalent to all of that, or it would suffice, giving thanks to the blessings of the joints, and it will be the same as if you keep saying Subhan Allah Al hamdu, LilLah Allahu Akbar and in June what's right, and forbid what is evil, and so on.

00:22:59 --> 00:23:25

There are many a hadith with regards to the concept of a Salam, whether it is a Salaam in the Arabic dictionary is a small bones in the fingers and in the palm, then it may be used to address the bones of the entire body, or the bones in between two joints, all sum, because now is m as the joints themselves, which hook up each two bones together.

00:23:26 --> 00:23:27

In either case,

00:23:30 --> 00:23:32

the blessings of health,

00:23:33 --> 00:23:57

the blessings of the bones, and blessings of the joints. How many of us have ever reflected on those blessings? How many of us ever thought whenever we been down, he'd been over and we get up, whether in the prayer or to pick up things or to tie our shoelaces, or to go upstairs or go downstairs.

00:23:58 --> 00:24:31

It's a lot less things. You know, the knees are joints, the big joints but their joints. When somebody has a problem with the knees, you know, the whole life. The whole life will be interrupted. He can go upstairs, he can go down the stairs, he can pray properly, he can bend over, he can sit on the floor, a lot of things would be interrupted. He's been doing this for years for years for years, and not paying attention to Yet Allah subhanaw taala says we're endowed dunya hamata Allah He later saw her this area

00:24:32 --> 00:24:58

which says if you try to count and keep record of Allah's blessings, Never will you be able to estimate them because they are beyond count. It doesn't mean that don't count or don't bother, but it means reflect on some of the blessings of Allah bestowed upon you. And they are countless and recognize that you are king. You're a very rich person. You already have plenty.

00:24:59 --> 00:25:00

So while you sir

00:25:00 --> 00:25:03

supposed to do, at least thank Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:25:04 --> 00:25:54

thank Allah for giving you health for giving you strength for giving you free mobility through those joints and so on. So NWO Salalah and SlMs aid, as it is mentioned in some Hadith 360 joints 360 solum and you have to match the number of the joints with the same number of gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala for giving you those blessings, imagine every morning you open the door, and there's a fruit basket full of delicious fresh fruits. You pick it up, you take it inside, enjoy feed your family, and not a single day, not even once you thought of asking, I wonder who keeps put in the basket of the foods every day every morning. That doesn't make any sense.

00:25:56 --> 00:26:30

It is something natural to figure out who gave me the why I want to say thank you. I want to thank you for giving me the fruits and giving me gifts over and over. I haven't done any good thing to you so that you will keep gifting me. Allah subhanaw taala continues to gift us to bless us to bestow upon us His favours and blessings countless and most of us as Allah subhanaw taala said while attached to a thorough home Shaqiri and most of them most of human beings are not grateful to Allah subhanaw taala as a matter of fact, on the contrary,

00:26:31 --> 00:26:44

most of them are ungrateful by not recognizing his oneness and his lordship. And some of them Muslims not even saying Alhamdulillah or paying the do thanks to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:26:45 --> 00:26:50

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam in the other Hadith when he mentioned 360 joints he said

00:26:52 --> 00:27:36

that you shouldn't give charity every day. Charities 360 times in order to match just the blessings of the joints. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said when he was asked What if we can afford if we can remember 360 times you sit and say subhanallah Alhamdulillah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Akbar, and by the way, these are the best words and the most favored to Allah subhanaw taala and Allah the Almighty refer to them in Surah Alkaff by saying, well back here to solve how to hire on handle up because however Mohan ml, look, the air is as follows. And man while Ben moon, Xena to hire to adhere to dunya

00:27:38 --> 00:27:59

worth and children are the doorman, the Zener the beauty, the greatest treasure that you can have in the life of the soul. One of them is not enough by itself worth children are the Zener the beauty of the life of this world, and men will be known as Xena to hieratic dunya, then,

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

but there's something better than that. What is better than wealth and children are back here to Sally had that yet, remaining forever Sally had righteous Hiren means bearer, there are then worlds there are then children, there are then the whole world and what it contains better with whom there are with the Lord. There are as far as a word and as far as hope, Eldar Kyoto, Salah had refer to Say Subhan Allah.

00:28:34 --> 00:29:24

Well, hamdulillah Well, ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar. So these four words are the everlasting good deeds, and better with regards to Word and hope before Allah subhanaw taala and also add to that while how La La Quwata illa Allah Subhana Allah when hamdulillah Ilaha illa Allah Allahu Akbar, Allah Hola, hola, Quwata illa biLlah Malawi. So if you keep saying the 360 times that will match the gratitude for of the blessings of a Solana or the joints. What if you can if you don't have time, if you forgot, so anything you do, such as in journal, it's right for building what is evil, smiling to somebody with a smiley face when you meet your Muslim brother sisters.

00:29:25 --> 00:29:38

Giving them this beautiful smile. This is an act of charity, teaching people something useful. This is an act of charity. And the Rio Salado, Salah mentioned various acts which are categorized as charity.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:59

Some of them will benefit the person himself and some of them their benefit is extended to others. And the benefit which is extended to others are favored by Allah subhanaw taala and better before Allah subhanaw taala such as helping people, assisting people give in hand to somebody who's in need

00:30:00 --> 00:30:05

Not only in a charity, but also in law giving them financial help, but also

00:30:06 --> 00:30:27

physically assisting them interceding for them to fulfill their need. All those means you saw all acts of charity, which come number one, as acts of worship. Number two, to match the blessings, the countless blessings of Allah subhanaw taala at least one form, which is the blessings of a Salam.

00:30:28 --> 00:31:12

When the companion said and who can afford that oh prophet of Allah, He said, You know what, I don't know how to fill message God at funeral ha sadaqa. Like when you see somebody's pet in the machine, that was when the machine was made of sand and people's. So you bury it, you clean up the mess shed, you remove the filth from the machine, you remove hazard things from the past of people. These are also the cloud flora of sadaqa and Salahuddin it is not only the financial assistance, any good deed you do is an act of charity, or sadaqa was shown here and polygon for l lemmya. Did. And if the person cannot afford does not have a chance to do any of that, like for instance somebody who's

00:31:12 --> 00:31:37

handicapped, he is stuck. He can assist others. He can assist himself, let alone assisting others. So the prophets Allah Allah, Allah selama said it will be sufficient to pray to Allah cause of dukkha before I speak about the Torah cause of the Doha prayer in the foreknown prayer. I want to say that somebody asked one of our rightist predecessors by the name Yunus of Norway, there was a righteous man may Allah mention we asked him

00:31:39 --> 00:31:51

that extremely poor had been suffering Allah deprive me from everything. So humans have not obeyed May, Allah had missed on him said to him, would you like to trade your site for $100,000 home?

00:31:53 --> 00:32:12

He said, Of course not. He said, Would you like to trade your hands for likewise for another 100,000? Is it no your feet? Your hearing? And he kept mentioning some of the blessings which Allah Almighty have bestowed upon him. He said, No, he said, subhanAllah I see a millionaire in front of me and he was still complaining.

00:32:14 --> 00:32:20

I see a millionaire. And we really, really need to comprehend this advice.

00:32:21 --> 00:32:43

Every time you feel yourself, your Eman is low. You feel yourself misfortunate. Unlucky. compare yourself to others who happen to be more fortunate than you as far as wealth. Simply pay a visit to the hospital, public hospital to visit people who are weak, sick and cannot afford the medication.

00:32:44 --> 00:33:24

Even if you don't know them, go and visit cancer patients patients with renal failure go to any of the clinics which offers renal dialysis. Early morning, six 7am You will find the parking lot is full of vehicles and you will find people in lines for hours. Do you know how many times that the process of dialysis naturally happening in the body every single day without paying a penny without paying attention to it? While the person who's having this sickness has to do like every couple days, and they pay that much and it is a very painful process. May Allah protect all of us and may Allah gives you fat

00:33:25 --> 00:33:30

to those who are sick alarm I mean and make the sickness I mean forgiving their sins.

00:33:32 --> 00:34:00

So basically it is like that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wants to alert us to the significance of understanding that we have many blessings we should be appreciative and how to appreciate those blessings by giving thanks to Allah subhanaw taala though thanks would not benefit Allah that would benefit us would benefit the grateful and thankful person in the form of doing any of the acts of charity as discussed earlier.

00:34:02 --> 00:34:10

Why have you been Munna? May Allah have mercy on him said Maktoum won't be Hekmati. Aladar would among the wisdom, statements of

00:34:11 --> 00:34:53

the people of profit David peace be upon him is alive here too, as well could Hefei health is the hidden sovereignty, the hidden dominion and kingdom. You don't really have to be an appointed king or an elected president to be very prestigious and you feel yourself superior to others, and the luckiest person on earth. No, he said, the luckiest person is the one who's really healthy. This is dominion. This is sovereignty, but it is hidden, because it's between you and Allah subhanaw taala It is not like being a president of a country or a real king, but it is indeed more dominion and sovereignty.

00:34:55 --> 00:34:59

Book real money, may Allah have mercy on him seat? Son of air

00:35:00 --> 00:35:12

them. If you really want to know how much blessings do you have any had been very negligent of them and thanks, then close your eyes.

00:35:13 --> 00:35:33

And I'm asking you to do the same brothers and sisters just close your eyes right now you're watching the program and imagine you're only listening to the audio. You can see what the presenter is saying. Nor can I see it's a very awful feeling. Whenever there is a black out we are asked to turn on the battery,

00:35:34 --> 00:36:06

the flashlight, why? Because we can see, imagine somebody who is living in darkness all the time. Because of that, there is a Hadith even though this hadith is George by Cheryl Alba and me Allah nursing him as a weak Hadith it is collected by Al Hakim. But we would like to learn a lesson from this hadith. It doesn't stay a hug. So that's why I'm saying it's a week and I'm showing you that will benefit just a lesson from this hadith.

00:36:07 --> 00:36:55

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam is here according to the narration of jab Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with handed Gibreel came to the Prophet salallahu Salam, and revealed to him the story of a man from the nations before us as you know that people used to live for hundreds of years. Prophet no Halle Salam lived for over 1200 years. His Dawa mission lasted for 950 years fella with a female facility in a law from Siena. 1000 years minus 50 as the Quran says, so this man lived on top of a mountain for 500 years, Allah grew a tree that bears fruits. So all what he used to do is eat from the fruits and prostrate himself Institute and in worship that CEU prior 500 years, did not commit a

00:36:55 --> 00:37:01

single sin, showing gratitude, offering prayers, does not mingle with anybody else. 500 years of worship.

00:37:03 --> 00:37:29

So when he died, a lot of mighty revived him and he said to the angels in his presence, take my servant to my heaven by my mercy. So this servant objected to the last segment of the of the statement by My Mercy said, Yeah, Robbie, I load rather by my deeds, I have worshiped you for 500 years. It's like you dismissed all of that and say, Thy mercy.

00:37:30 --> 00:37:36

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, as once again, I'd like to confirm this is a weak Hadith.

00:37:37 --> 00:37:46

The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Allah Almighty said, My servant, rather by My Mercy, and the servant kept arguing with Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:37:47 --> 00:38:25

Upon that Allah Almighty said to the angels, were any of my blessings upon the servant versus his worship of 500 years. So they selected the blessing of the site, the blessing of the site was put on one pot, and the worship of 500 years was put on the other part, and the blessings of the site outweigh the worship of the 500 years, which means that all of that was not enough to give thanks to Allah for enabling you to see, to see things to be able to see the blessings of Allah Basa

00:38:27 --> 00:39:12

the sight so Allah Almighty said, well, take him to another to the farfel because he did not do enough. And then the servant acknowledged Allah has countless fevers upon him and all what he did was insufficient. And he begged Allah by saying Bella Bella Matic ARB, rather take me to Heaven by Your mercy. So we want to understand that all our worship all our fulfilling our duties towards Allah subhanaw taala whether the mandatory or the voluntary pass, oh, all of that. Number one is for the benefit of our own selves. It's just an attempt to give thanks to Allah subhanaw taala for his countless blessings. Why did they say an attempt because no matter what you do, it will not be

00:39:12 --> 00:39:44

sufficient. Subhan Allah the prophets Allah Allah Allah selama said in a hadith narrated by Abdullah had another name, that men are Lahaina also be Allahumma OS Mojave Mindanao met in a we had a min healthy care for men Kiwanda kelia. Cherie Calaca falak Al Hamdulillah Kushok Ed shook Radha likly young woman Carla Hina UMC at the chakra Leila at the importance of reciting the of God in the morning and in the evening. This is one of the prescribed as God.

00:39:45 --> 00:39:59

We've been discussing that it is impossible to pay enough gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala for his countless blessings not even for one of his blessings. But the Prophet sallallahu sallam said Allah is most happy and he's satisfied with what you will give in the morning if you will.

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

To say the follow Allahumma Morales bahagi mean nothing in a blessing that you bestowed upon me in this morning, or you maintained until this morning. For me, I will be I hadn't been helping or to any of your teachers come in calahonda it is only from you from you alone lashari color, not from anyone else. There is no partner to telecoil hamdulillah Kushok. So praise be to you and all thanks and gratitude, beat you, the prophets, Allah, Allah, Allah said MSE that will be sufficient. So it's like, as the Hadith said before, that no matter what we do, it will not benefit Allah, Allah Almighty and art if all human beings in the gender very first and the very last war, as righteous as

00:40:50 --> 00:40:59

the most righteous one that would not increase Allah as the men and art but it is only for our own benefit. Musa alayhis salam said, Oh Allah.

00:41:00 --> 00:41:22

If I pray, it is because of you. You've guided me to pray. If I give the hour and I guide people until it is because of you because of your assistance and your guidance, you give me success to give dower to pray. You bestowed upon me countless blessings. So how am I supposed to thank you? So Allah subhanho wa Taala said to him, you just did

00:41:23 --> 00:41:30

because agonizing, that what you enjoy if my blessings is from you, from Allah alone,

00:41:31 --> 00:42:22

is how you thank Allah subhanaw taala. So the first level and the greatest of chakra and gratitude is to understand that this is from him. This is from him. Then there comes the role of the tongue to give thanks to interpret your feeling, say Allahu Melaka ham. You really mean it because you feel it in your heart. Then thirdly, act upon the following. This gift is from Allah do not misuse it. No, do not use it in anything that will displease Allah subhanho wa taala. But mere saying Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah by the tongue. It is like somebody who has a new outfit or let me give you this example. It is raining heavily. And somebody has a raincoat or have an umbrella.

00:42:23 --> 00:42:34

But he had umbrella folded. He did not unfold it. He did not open it up. So he is soaked with rain water. He has a coat, but he's holding the raincoat in his teeth.

00:42:35 --> 00:42:46

They said it was his mouth. He never wore it, you never put it on. So you soaked wood with the rainwater. This is similar to somebody who says Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. He doesn't mean what it means.

00:42:47 --> 00:43:34

He doesn't understand what it means. He does not apply what it means. He doesn't feel it by his heart is just by the tongue while his eyes are always wandering around, missing what everybody else has comparing himself to those who are superior to him, built in Allah's halos upon him, and so on. So when you say in Hamdulillah, you really mean it, you feel it? And this the How am I supposed to use this namah destroy yourself, smoke, drink, do what Allah prohibited? No, this is the greatest mean of being ungrateful to Allah subhanaw taala which would ruin your deed. And accordingly, you're rejecting the Dharma, the blessing which Allah subhanaw taala bestowed upon you. Last but not the

00:43:34 --> 00:43:35

least in this hadith,

00:43:37 --> 00:44:20

the blessings of praying the Doha prayer and it's time is 1520 minutes past sunrise every morning and until 15 minutes before the other end of it is best to postpone it to like an hour before noon before though that's what's called the Four noon prayer Salah to Doha is such a great prayer. And it is a prophetic sunnah, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has said in many other Hadith amongst its virtues, that if you happen to sit for federal prayer after the federal prayer, recite or EN or attend the halka or make of car until sunrise and pray these two records, Allah will give you the word of offering a complete hajj and umrah so we do very little and Allah Subhana Allah gives us a

00:44:20 --> 00:44:43

magnitude toward the higher law he MacArthur May Allah guide us toward his best May Allah forgive us our sins and accept the best of our deeds Allah. I mean a photocopy had stuff for Lolly welcome was salam ala Sayidina Muhammad in while early or Savio Salem and until next time Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:44:48 --> 00:44:49


00:44:51 --> 00:44:51


00:44:54 --> 00:44:56

allah God is the greatest

00:44:57 --> 00:44:59

woman doling glory to Him

00:45:00 --> 00:45:31

He asked me to be the best and gave his best religion to allah God has been greatest, the one and only Glory to him on any illness to be the best and gave his best religion to them. So why did they know that forgetting all about and in paradise, we're shipping guns fire and stones, sending letters to the cheapest

00:45:33 --> 00:45:44

day know that forgiving go about Hello paradise. We're shipping cars fire and stoves, selling their best with a Jeep is

00:45:47 --> 00:45:48
