Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu
the conditions in regards to this powerful testimony law in the law, Muhammad Rasul Allah, it's established that this is the key to Jenna but every key has ridges and you need to have the right ridges in place to be open to be able to open the door that you want to open. Otherwise the door is not going to open May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us entry into gender I mean, so the conditions the conditions are deduced from the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophets that along it really was lm and
it you know this point
sulam will be School of chef, half of the alchemy, he basically brings the conditions in two lines and it's easy for us to remember these conditions he says la muhuali Athena will kabu la Elmo Valley Athena well kabu will in Korea,
feathery Morocco was Singapore while lasso while muhabba was soccer called La Halima hub.
Let me repeat, Elmo Walia. thenew while abou while in Theodor feathery Morocco. So he basically says, knowledge or Elmo knowledge, will your teen certainty conviction conviction will Cobbold acceptance apset acceptance and I'll in Thea do submission and following further edema. uphol. So listen carefully to what I say was cynical. truthfulness. Well if lasso, sincerity. Well muhabba love seven conditions were * Allahu Lima habba May Allah help you to do that which he loves. So, the first condition many brothers and sisters is knowledge. So when we say knowledge, what do we mean? I mean, is it the broad definition of knowledge is it basically seeking knowledge? here when
it is said knowledge? primarily what it means is that it is in the sense of negating what is negated in the Shahada and affirming what is affirmed buried. When you say La Ella, you're negating there is no deity worthy of worship. And then you are affirming Illallah we don't we don't just stop with negating. Then Allah forbid you become an atheist, if you say, there is none worthy of worship, then basically you don't believe in God. La Isla, you negate. And you empty your mind and your heart la isla there is none worthy of worship, Ill of law and then you go on to affirm, except or but Allah. So in the sense of negating what is negated in the Shahada and affirming what is affirmed during
that in and this is contrary to being ignorant of that. There are some who would be like, you know,
I choose to be ignorant. I don't want to you know, have knowledge and disregard Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says in the Noble Quran, find them know, and find them the command it is, it is in the imperative form, phylum is derived from, from knowledge, no, be aware or come to know, and who ilaha illAllah that indeed there is no worthy of worship, except there is no there is none worthy of worship, other than Allah there's none La ilaha illAllah there's no deity worthy of worship others.
And again, if you recall the Hadith that I mentioned a while ago, or Samana or the Allah one he repost the prophet Elijah Mr. Porter said, my mat haha yeah, lm look at the wording of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he who died Montmartre he who died what who I am knowing the same same
word is used.
The professor Allison didn't say he who died whilst writing or saying no man motto Yeah, lm he who died knowing
knowledge knowing under who La ilaha illAllah that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, the halogen will enter Paradise. So this hadith like I mentioned earlier, it's recorded in the book of Muslim Rahim Allah, it affirms this first condition of a lack of knowledge. The second condition is your clean certainty. So certainty in the sense that the one who articulates these words
is absolutely certain of their meaning.
Faith is not sufficient unless it is based on conviction.
There can't be elements of speculation. That can't be doubt. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Noble Quran in ML min en la Vina am an OB la he was solito Melania.
Indeed, or enamel moon only those are the believers. levena Amano. Those who have believed in Allah, what are suli he and his messenger. So melamine taboo, and after that afterwards they do not doubt lamb your taboo they don't doubt ryyb your taboo
comes from the root rape Allah say Delica he tabula rasa Buffy when talking about the Quran, loughrea Buffy no doubt in it. Likewise, some millimeters taboo they believed in Allah and His messenger. And afterwards they doubt not.
This ayah is in sort of gerat the 49 chapter is number 15.
So from this we understand
that the sincerity of the faith of an individual in Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is conditional
upon the fact that there should be no elements of doubt there in as for those who doubt, those who constantly doubt you see, you have
like I said earlier a Lima z Dwyane posts. Here he man rises
and drops. So during such junctures it's important for us to quickly rejuvenate ourselves. And this is why Allah says whether care for inadequate and found meaning and remind for reminders profit the believers. And just like we charge our devices. At the end of the day, regardless of how big a battery you've got, maybe can be 4000 or 5000 milliamp hours, you still have to recharge the device after a day or two.
Similarly, we need to rejuvenate ourselves. We need to recharge ourselves, spiritually feed ourselves, it's important to feed ourselves those who end up we end up feeling that that vacuum that emptiness within us.
And if we don't address it, that doubt, grows like a black spot on our hearts. It grows and grows and grows until eventually engulfs the entire heart. May Allah protect us.
We have an aeration that is recorded.
If I'm not mistaken in the book of Mount Buhari, Anima, Muslim Rama mala, Abu huraira, the Allahu anhu he says the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his report Dr. Said, bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah, and that I am the messenger of Allah. For no person meets a love with these two, ie believing in Allah and His Messenger not doubting in them look at the look at the wording very crucial wording they're not doubting in them and here we are, we're talking about doubts, not doubting in them, but he will enter Paradise. According to another report, the province analysis reporter said no person meets a law with these two, believing in a
line the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam not doubting and them not doubting in them. And is he going to be denied paradise? No person meets Allah with these two not doubting in them and is he going to be denied paradise In other words, he is going to be granted entry into
Jenna definitely. He also have the Hadees where Abu huraira de la one it's a lengthy Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he calls for Abu huraira Viola one who when he tells him
whoever you meet, yeah, about Herrera behind this wall,
who bears witness today is no deity worthy of worship other than a lot, believing in it with certainty in his heart, believing in it with your clean, certainty.
second condition in his heart, then give him the glad tidings of Jenna the glad tidings of paradise. Moving on condition number three,
a COBOL. Well included,
three and four is basically acceptance, a bool and then submission. So to accept what these words imply, to accept it in one's heart. I mean to start off verbally and then to accept in one's heart as well. You need to accept it Kaboul
too, when you say that, in the law, there is no deity worthy of worship other than on law, you accept it, and you accept what it entails the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala the prohibitions of Eliza Virgil, you accept a boon. Because when you articulate and when you bring in this testimony of faith, you can't bring it in, and then say, you know what, I don't accept what it comes with. Now, you need to accept the commandments of Allah, the prohibitions of Allah, the teachings of the prophets that allow while he rarely will sell them. We have an authentic hadith where Abu Musab al ashari are the long line who he mentioned that the prophets Allah Allah Islam is
reporter I've set
the guidance and knowledge with which Allah Subhana Allah Allah has sent to me is like abundant rain is like an abundant rain, which falls on the land. Beautiful metaphor, abundant rain, which falls on the land, some of the land absorbs the water, this this blessing drain some of the land absorbs the water, and brings forth much
lush grass and vegetation.
Some of the land, absorbs the water and produces plants, produces trees produces vegetation, and some of the rain falls on another part of the land, which is like a smooth plane. And it does not hold the water. So no vegetation grows. Like let's say if you've got a
tower road, if you will, a road that has been taught. Now when it rains, what happens, it doesn't hold water obviously and the water runs away. And then what happens nothing grows there. That is the likeness the prophecy nihilism goes on to say that is the likeness of the one who understands the deen of Allah, the religion of Allah and benefits from that which Allah has sent to me with. So he learns and he acts upon it, and the likeness of the one who pays no heed, and does not accept the guidance of Allah with which I have been sent. So you see the two examples basically. So the land that accepts the rain absorbs the rain, Kaboul, the word Kaboul it accepts that rain.
So you need to accept the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah. And then you see prosperity, you see abundance, you'll see productivity, you become this individual that produces luscious grass and vegetation and plants. On the other hand, you have lands that are like smooth plains, hard as a rock, that do not absorb anything that do not accept anything. So the water just runs on top of it.
It's almost like this oleophobic coating that they put on some
devices and glass and wind screens where raindrops fall and just runs away. Wow.
So the likeness of that is like the one who pays no heed and does not accept the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So COBOL we need to accept it condition number four is in cleared and this is to
You accept La ilaha illa Allah and that which it entails. And you follow it you implement it into your life, it will not suffice for you to say I accept it, I accept it but I'm not going to follow it.
Then what happens is you remember this point,
the folly of shapen. He accepted Allah subhanho wa Taala but he did not follow through. He did not adhere to the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it is important that you accept and follow. I'll include clear, you cannot choose to accept and say I'm not going to follow the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm not going to adhere and stay away from that which Allah subhanho wa Taala
has prohibited. So it's important that we internalize this, we have an authentic hadith, where the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is reputed to have said, none of you truly believes none of you truly believes until his desire until his or her desire is in accordance with that which I have brought. This My dear brothers and sisters is the ultimate meaning of following. Look at the words of the messenger. None of you truly believe until his or her desire is in accordance. In other words, you cannot desire you cannot wish for something that is not in accordance to that which the messengers that Alan Wiley or even Selim has brought. So that's condition number four for you.
condition number five is acidic
truthfulness as well.
opposed to lying. Now, obviously when you look at it, look at this term in its broad sense, you're not supposed to lie, and lying is frowned upon. It is impermissible for a believer to lie.
And here, we're talking about it specifically in regards to one's faith. When one says La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, sincerely from the heart, there needs to be this harmony between what is in the heart and what is said on the lips. Otherwise, if there's kilobit, which is the opposite of so that falsehood, if there is lying in place of siddik, then that individual
is defined as a mana.
mela protect us from any form of hypocrisy
where you say one thing, there is one thing on your lips. And there's another thing in your heart.
Do you not think that the terminal fifth is what suits such an individual. And there were many of those during the time of the prophet Elijah and they will come to the prophet and say all kinds of things, or we believe in Allah, we believe in you or messenger of Allah, whilst they had the complete opposite, they had a completely different agenda in their hearts. So there needs to be this sense of truthfulness, you need to have setup, silica needs to be in in place
and not kill
in regards to the kalama La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah. So this is of utmost importance.
Moving on, so we're done with that.
And just before I conclude on that particular point, we have a hadith again recorded of the book of Imam Bukhari Muslim Imam Allah, more either been in Jubilee or the last one he says that
there is no one to the more either bingeable or the last one who he narrates the prophets, that is him. As reporter said, There is no one who bears witness that there is no god except Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a slave and messenger sincerely from the heart, with truthfulness, this condition of civic with truthfulness from his heart, except that Allah will forbid the fire for him, Allah will forbid the fire for him. So that's condition number five for you. The sixth condition is last sincerity. And this is this is a foundational principle when it comes to our Deen with the brothers and sisters.
And this is defined
in such a way that your actions need to be free from any element of shock.
Your actions need to be free from all elements of ship,
as in associating partners to Allah subhanho wa Taala, they might be wondering, well, I believe in Allah, and I haven't associated partners and to Allah.
When you go deeply into a class, you'd understand
that sure, also entails
for someone other than a lot in doing something as in doing a good deed.
For someone other than a lot, let's say,
let's say for example, if
you give out charity, okay, seemingly, you console yourself and you justify it to yourself that you're doing it for the sake of Allah, but in reality, deep down, you know, that you did it for the applause of the community that you are living with. Let's say you're just doing it for the applause of society. You're doing it to be on the cover of some magazine, you're doing it for
the pump for the spotlight.
Now what you've done is you're basically associated community you're associated that that applause the fame along with the last man with that, you didn't do it for the sake of Allah, you did it for the people. So you've associated them along with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Let's say you go to the masjid and you're there for every single prayer. But you're not doing it Lila. You're not doing it for Allah subhanho wa Taala you're doing it so that you are known in the place where you live as a righteous individual, as a
Religious individual so that the people in the masjid look up to you and they respect you. Oh, he's there for all five prayers on the first Soph basically the first row next to them I've been there to Riyadh, the concept of Riyadh takes over as long as you're doing it for show. You're doing it for name and fame for pomp and glitter. May Allah protect us. So in terms of our deeds were to be extremely careful and it's a work in progress. We are constantly keep recalibrating our intentions and reassessing our intentions because Shelton, he waits for that tiny window of opportunity to jump in and contaminate our intentions, because he knows if he succeeds in doing that, all of our deeds
So it's of utmost importance that we work on sincerity. When we say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, saying that we do it sincerely for the sake of Allah and from there from that point onwards, all of the commandments are adhering to the commandments of Allah staying away from the prohibitions of Allah, adhering to the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah.
Allah Allah hidden unharness as Allah says in Surah, to Zuma, surely the deen IE worship and obedience is for Allah. It is exclusively for Allah subhanho wa Taala.
We have an authentic hadith, Abu huraira the last one.
He said that the prophets lie Selim his report draft said the most deserving of my intercession the shefa of the Prophet, the most deserving of my intercession are those who say, La ilaha illa Allah sincerely from the heart, sincerely last heart listen sincerely from their hearts. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to
do our deeds perform of our deeds adhere to the commandments of Allah stay away from the prohibitions of Allah adhere to the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah sincerely with pure airfloss sincerely for the sake of Allah. I mean, condition number seven
l muhabba. Love. Now love to you know you it's a very broad term. And there are so many shades of love. You have love between spouses you have love between a mother and her child, a father and his child you have love between siblings, you have love between brothers, you have love between sisters.
So many shades of love.
The source of love, the fountainhead of love, the creator of love is Allah subhanho wa Taala and the purest form of love, the purest form of love
is loving Allah subhanho wa Taala. So condition number seven is to love Allah to love his word.
To love his messenger because they go hand in hand. You cannot say I love Allah but I don't love the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, nor can you say I love the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but I do not love online you cannot say that. Laila Illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah they go hand in hand they go hand in hand, if you love Allah, you love the messenger, if you love the messenger, you love Allah. If you love Allah, you love his word. If you love the messenger, you love his Sunnah, his teachings, but he came with
we have an authentic hadith. And I hope you were observing for every point. We backed it with evidence from the hold on and as soon as the profits that alone while the value seven, and a symptomatic for the alarm line who here so the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Islam, his report have said,
lie You know, had to come, none of you truly believes, until, and listen to the words of the Prophet carefully until I, ie the messenger until I am more beloved to him, that his than his son, then his father, and all of mankind. So you need to love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in such a way My dear brothers and sisters.
So as you can see, these are the seven conditions that need to be in place. These are the regions My dear brothers and sisters. So when you say la ilaha illAllah, who are out on welfare alone. It's a statement along with action
and it entails these conditions.
So for this
