Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, very respected elders brothers and sisters and the viewers of the daily reminder network as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salli wa sallam Allah ashrafi nambia eva mursaleen Nabina Wahhabi Vina wa karate ru Nina mo Mohammed even Abdullah Allahu Allah Allah He was found to be he of Lalu salatu wa atomica slim Ummah back, all praise and thanks to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala who is our Creator sustainer nourish protector and cure, we ask Allah subhana wa Donna to Chava his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members his companions and

00:00:48--> 00:00:53

all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of

00:00:55--> 00:01:18

Maria respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, in sha Allah Allah for tonight's hot softner we will be touching on a missing element from today's society, and that missing element is higher, which is modesty, purity, and being shy, all of these meanings are incorporated within the word Higher.

00:01:20--> 00:01:25

Higher as the Arabs say I'll higher Masako mineral higher

00:01:26--> 00:02:17

and higher, which Taku mineral higher, that the word higher is derived the Arabic word higher is derived from another Arabic word both of the words are derived from the same root higher is derived from L higher, which means modesty is derived from the word l higher which means life Allahu Akbar, Allah higher is derived from the word l higher, which is life. So scholars say that if an individual's heart is alive, if it is soft, supple and absorbing that which is good, then the element of higher the element of modesty will be complete in that individuals heart. But on the other hand, if that individuals heart is riddled with diseases, then the levels of modesty begin to

00:02:17--> 00:02:47

deplete and begin to decrease. May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all. And worse situation is if that individual's heart is dead, Allahu Akbar, if that individuals heart is dead, if it is dark and become heart, then higher is also dead, modesty is also dead. So this is how closely connected this is how closely connected higher is to an individual's heart. This is how closely connected modesty is to an individual's heart.

00:02:49--> 00:03:31

rhodiola Juan hooba is reported to have said that EMR and hire go hand in hand. EMR and hire are connected together very closely in an individual's heart. For if he man he says that if one of the two were to leave the other other will follow in suit. Say for example, if a man were to leave the heart of an individual, that higher also would leave the heart of that individual may Allah subhanahu wa taala save us all. And if hyah leaves the heart of an individual if modesty leaves the heart of an individual Eman also will gradually leave the heart of that particular individual may Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all.

00:03:32--> 00:04:20

So HIA is divided into two categories modesty is divided into two categories. One is that we have a good type of hire a good type of modesty, and then we have a bad type of modesty to a good type of modesty and a bad type of modesty. The good type of modesty divides itself once again into two. Number one I'll hire will fit three I'll hire will Jubilee and hire will fit three is that naturally ingrained modesty in your heart, all of us in our natural disposition. In our fifth era, Allah the Almighty has ingrained a natural sense of higher a natural sense of modesty. Say for example, none of us would walk on the streets completely naked. Why? Because we have that natural sense of higher

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

within us, none of us would resort to committing sexual acts with our wives in public, because we have that natural sense of hierarchy. But sadly today, when you look around, even that natural sense of higher has been plucked away from some individuals, may Allah the Almighty, save us all. We have places where people gather together, completely nude and they do all kinds of wild acts because Allah the Almighty has plucked away that sense of natural hire from them. May Allah subhana wa Taala save us all. The second type of hire from the good type of hire is I'll hire Imani Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

And that higher is a type of hire which needs to be earned. It is a modesty which needs to be earned. The more you develop your Eman, the mo the levels of your Eman grow that higher also grows and that higher is an encouraged type of a higher that higher My dear brothers and sisters in Islam is the higher is the modesty that will keep you away from sins. It is the modesty that will make you feel ashamed to commit a sin. It will make you feel ashamed, ashamed to disobey Allah subhanahu wa taala to transgress the limits of Allah Subhana Allah, you would feel ashamed to use the faculties that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed you with to commit a sin to transgress the limits of Allah

00:05:48--> 00:06:32

subhanho wa Taala you would feel ashamed to use the eyes that Allah the Almighty has given you to look at things that are haraam, the mouth that Allah has given you to attempt to articulate things that are Haram, the years that Allah has given you to hear things that are Haram, the notes that Allah has given you to perhaps smell those things that are haram May Allah subhanahu Allah save us all the perfume or the fragrance of a nun Mahara woman is haram. So even the not any faculty, any Faculty of ours should not be used to transgress the limits of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The more we develop that higher, Imani, we will stay away from all those things that will anger a loss of a

00:06:32--> 00:06:33

hyena who has either

00:06:35--> 00:07:04

salamander or the Persian rhodiola why he states that if Allah Subhana Allah, if Allah the Almighty decrees Doom upon an individual, Allah the Almighty plucks away higher from that individual, Allah blocks away modesty from that individual, resulting in that individual becoming rebellious and defiant to the commandments of Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah the Almighty save us all.

00:07:05--> 00:07:49

Moving on to the bad type of hire, will swiftly cover that that hire is not encouraged, it is blameworthy and it is not something that we need to adopt. The bad type of hire is that higher where a person feels ashamed to uphold the Sharia of Allah subhanho wa Taala he feels ashamed to follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is a bad type of hire. That is a bad type of modesty, which is not encouraged at all. He feels ashamed to adhere to the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the teachings of Islam because he's ashamed to adopt the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he suffers complexes to look like Rasulullah

00:07:49--> 00:08:35

sallallahu alayhi wasallam because he's ashamed to adopt the lifestyle of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So that is the bad type of hire, which we should stay away completely from my beloved chef Mr. Ibrahim Rahim Allah He states that if an individual commits something in secret, if an individual commits something, a sin in secret that he is ashamed to commit in the public, that means he does not have higher and also he does not have any self respect at all for himself, Allahu Akbar, because he is ashamed to do it in public, but he doesn't mind doing it in the privacy of his home or his room. He doesn't mind doing it in secret. He is

00:08:35--> 00:08:48

forgetting that Allah the Almighty Who gave over a billion human beings decide to see that Allah is not blind to our actions. Allah subhanahu wa taala is well aware of what we do.

00:08:49--> 00:09:36

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said and the Hadith in Bukhari, either lm tester for SNAP machine. If you don't have higher, if you don't feel ashamed, if you don't feel modest, then do whatever you will do whatever you want, you can be whatever you want, even walk on the streets naked. If you don't have have hire, do whatever you want, because color is explained as higher leaves you Mr. Also will gradually leave you let me share with you all the beautiful story of Imam Abdullah ibn s lemma alpiner v. Rahim Allah. One day, there was a young street urchin, who was known as Abdullah. He was a street urchin who used to run around causing all cause all kinds of

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

mischief and doing whatnot. One day he was seated outside his house and he was having a dagger in his hand, and he was planning to do some mischeif. At that time, he sees a group of people approaching him there was a person riding a donkey or a horse and he had students around him gathering around him. So the minute that convoy or that gathering past him. This young boy Abdullah asks the students

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

Who is this person on the horse or on the donkey? What is the big deal about him? Why are you following him? Then the students say said that this is Mr. shaba. Even as a judge, he was a great Imam of Heidi, and we are his students. Oh, so he is a great Imam of Heidi. They let me go up to him and ask him to relate these to me so that I can relate from him, or shaba relate a hadith unto me, of him, I'm sure but I said, this is not the way a student of knowledge seeks knowledge. Why don't you come to our circles and then seek knowledge from me? And you have to dare develop your character and your behavior if you want to become a student of knowledge? To which he said, No, I'm not going

00:10:39--> 00:10:45

to leave you I will cause a big ruckus here. If you don't narrate a hadith to me and he starts pointing the dagger at the Imam.

00:10:47--> 00:11:29

The Imam then says he uses the opportunity to teach this individual something. he narrates this very Hadith that I narrated to you all now either lm test a first number she called he inherited the Hadith with its full chain, and he said Kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, he loved the study first. Now, if you don't have modesty, if you don't have higher to whatever you want, the minute the Imam uttered those words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the street urchin His name is Abdullah. It struck a chord in his heart, and it was as if Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam materialized in front of him.

00:11:29--> 00:12:15

And it was as if Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May my mother my father and myself be sacrificed for him and be ransom for him. It was as if he had come in front of him and was advising him. He immediately turned back home. And that was the pivotal moment that he turned changed his life completely. He turned and changed his life completely, and turned over a new leaf and started his journey on seeking knowledge Allahu Akbar. He travels all the way to Imam Malik Rahim Allah and he becomes one of the most famous students of Imam Malik Rahim Allah. And after a long period of seeking knowledge, he comes back to where he was his hometown because he wanted to become a student

00:12:15--> 00:13:01

of Imam shaba, the very Imam that he had pointed the dagger at. But by the time he comes back, Imam Shaka Rahim Allah had passed away and this young boy Abdullah later on becomes the great Imam Imam Abdullah Ibn muslimah al Carnaby. He was a student of Imam Malik Rahim Allah a great muhaddith Allahu Akbar. And the only Hadi The only Hadith that he narrates from Imam shaba is that Hadees that he heard after pointing the dagger at him, either Allah testa he first not mushy, if you do not have higher do whatever you will, because if you do not have higher gradually Eman is going to leave you that's what scholars say in terms of the explanation of the Hadith. So May Allah the Almighty fill

00:13:01--> 00:13:47

all our hearts with beautiful higher so that we completely stay away from all those things that displease Allah behind them who are the law abiding the commandments of Allah behind them, who are the Allah, let us work on this element, this missing element of higher and let us adopt it let us bring it into our lives. It has become modest, it has become ashamed. It has become shy in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala just as how once a student of Mr. Mathematica humble rahima hula stands up and reads a poem in front of him, either Macaulay, Ravi Mustapha Tasini to feed them by faulty wabi Tini Ahmed Rahim Allah was astounded. He said, Can you please repeat that piece of poetry? The words

00:13:47--> 00:14:31

are translated as either muffaletta europea Mr. Tasini, what will I do? And my Lord says to me, while you're not ashamed when you are disobeying me, you Hi, you hate your faults from the creation. But with all of these faults, you come in front of me, What will I say to my Lord on that day, Allahu Akbar, even the humble rahima hula, he keeps hearing this piece of poetry. And he started weeping so much to the extent that he had to leave, get up and leave the gathering. And his students go on to say that he entered his house and they could still hear him weeping Allahu Akbar. May Allah subhanahu wa taala forgive all of our sins, and may fill our hearts with higher so that we stay away

00:14:31--> 00:14:46

completely from those things that displease our beloved maker, and may He forgive our sins. May he accept our good deeds, and may He Almighty unite all of us in the gardens of gender just as our he has united us here tonight with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa kumala hide behind a bar he will be hungry he is behind the column will be handing a shot to a la ilaha illa still fearful what will be like so the Long Island who may do it he was

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

He was saying
