the word yet in it's an Arabic word, it is derived from yaquina in the Arabic language, which literally and technically means the removal, Zavala schuck, the removal of doubt,

00:06:44--> 00:06:55

the removal of doubt, to believe in something with conviction with firm faith and that's a topic for today's reminder, firm ground.

00:06:57--> 00:07:27

We need to establish ourselves on firm ground with regards to our belief system with regards to our maker subhana wa dialler with regards to the Scripture with regards to the revelation with regards to the Quran and the Sunnah of our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with regards to Jenna with regards to jahannam with regards to your multi ama with regards to judgment day

with regards to other faith, predestination, that everything has been written by our maker some kind of word Allah, we need to bring in firm conviction with regards to all of this year 13.

00:07:45--> 00:07:52

Mr. Abraham Allah, He is reported to have said, I'm paraphrasing his words.

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

00:07:57--> 00:08:17

the relationship of year clean of this firm conviction to a man now we call ourselves people of Eva e sono people. Amen. Amen. May Allah make a steadfast uponor. Amen. I mean, so, the relationship of Yeti in our firm conviction, this firm conviction to a man

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

is that of the soul to the body.

00:08:23--> 00:09:14

What happens when the soul when the rule leaves the body, the body becomes lifeless. So similarly, if you're a man is not infused with urethane with firm conviction, then you're a man is lifeless. May Allah protect us. I mean, that's that's the parable. That's the metaphor being struck in that statement of Eman Abdullah Ibrahim A whole lot. It is to believe firmly in Allah subhanho wa Taala.

We are not convinced we do not have conviction in this regard that it will ever happen. That you know there's something called the life of the hereafter. There. There is something called Jenna there's something called jahannam that you know a doomsday will ever take place. We don't think that it'll happen. We think it's all just speculation. It's just thought

00:14:41--> 00:14:50

Subhan Allah. This is what the people who are doomed will say My dear brothers and sisters, but as people obviously and as people have conviction,

00:14:51--> 00:14:55

we have to work towards strengthening our conviction

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

by the brothers and sisters

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

When talking about

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

La ilaha illAllah

00:15:07--> 00:15:13

La ilaha illa Allah. There's no deity worthy of worship other than Allah. Look at this hadith.

00:15:14--> 00:15:48

If I'm not mistaken, it's recorded in the book of Muslim Rahim Allah in the book of a man in the book of fate, Abu huraira of the law, one who he makes mention and I'm paraphrasing I'm narrating the Hadith along the lines of these words are kumbhak Allah Allah is the Hadith basically goes along the lines of these words. So what happens this is long Hadith, okay, long Hadeeth were in the Hadith, Abu huraira the Allahu anhu. He goes on to mention that he was in a gathering with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and suddenly the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

got up, he left and he didn't return.

00:15:53--> 00:16:08

Now Abu huraira the yellow one, he was worried about the profits and a long while he was early he was selling so he gets up and he goes looking for the messengers and Allah whitey very recently. And he ends up finding the prophets and along Wiley when you send them within a garden

00:16:10--> 00:16:26

and then the prophets that along Wiley where you sell them he notices the presence of someone by the gate of the garden and the messenger asks Is that is that you? Abu hurayrah Is that you? And you know what is the matter? Why Why have you come?

00:16:27--> 00:17:10

So after Abu huraira the Allah one who explained as to why he came out to find the messengers for a long while he really was because of the concern that he had. Now the prophets align Islam addresses him Yeah, about hora. Yeah, about Herrera and the prophets lie Selim, he gives now lane he gives his foot where he is to sandals to Abu huraira the along one when he says yeah about hora. Go with both of my sandals in your hands. And when you meet anyone outside this garden, who testifies that there is no god that there is no deity but a law

00:17:11--> 00:17:16

with conviction in his heart, with Yeti in

00:17:17--> 00:17:34

mistake a name with conviction in his heart. Then give him glad tidings gladden him. Lighten his heart, give glad tidings and to Him, saying that he shall go to Jenna, he shall go to Paradise.

00:17:35--> 00:17:46

What is the Prophet say what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say he gave his narrow lane his two sandals to Abu huraira Viola one when he says about Herrera, take my sandals.

00:17:48--> 00:18:19

Take my sandals as a gesture of proof take it as bohan as evidence and go out, go out. And when you meet anyone outside this garden who testifies that there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah with yaqeen in their hearts, give glad tidings and to them that they shall go to Jenna that they shall go to Paradise. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah bless us all, to attain gender to attain genital for those the highest of the gardens, I mean,

00:18:20--> 00:19:10

so many brothers and sisters, but it's suffice to merely pay lip service to the kalama to just say Laila Illallah look at the words of the Prophet Elias and then with firm conviction with firm conduct conviction. So the Kelly Ma and this firm conviction is one of the conditions of the kalama Ah, what is this conditions of the kalama What do you mean when you say conditions? Do we not regard the Kalima as the key to paradise the key to Jenna. So why do we need to fulfill conditions? And this this question was put forth to someone with knowledge as Connor and he responded saying, yes. La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah is definitely the key to Jenna Yes, there's no doubt about

00:19:10--> 00:19:10

it.

00:19:12--> 00:19:56

But you have to fulfill the conditions. And the conditions being fulfilled, are like, the grooves or the teeth of the key. Just imagine, if you were to have a blank key, would you be able to even put it into a lock to try and open the door and would a blank key, I say a blank key, I mean, a key without any teeth, without the conditions being fulfilled, with a blank key, open anything. On the other hand, if you were fulfilling the wrong things, it's almost like having the wrong key. If you were to put it into the lock, it's not going to open you need to have the right key for the appropriate lock with the right rages with the right teeth, and then the key will unlock the door.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

So similarly, these conditions need to be met and the condition

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

deduced from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hatfield hoca me

00:20:08--> 00:20:58

or him a whole lot he mentions in in a poem Salaam Alva Sewell, he says with regards to the conditions of the Kalima that they are Al muhuali, Athena will cabul Well, in theory, the Fed Rima akule was Sudoku last well muhabba wa FOCA called La Halima Hubba. So he says Allah Islam. So these are the conditions La Jolla tea in Whirlpool, so you need to have knowledge. Obviously, due to the brevity of time, I can't go into the detail of these conditions. But if I'm not mistaken, I've addressed this in in prior videos. And I'll try to have the link put up as we speak, eventually on the YouTube video in Sharla, on the YouTube upload, so you have an aim, you need to have knowledge

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

and earlier clean.

00:21:00--> 00:21:37

This is a condition to have firm conviction as per the Hadith as well, that we mentioned, to to testify that there is no deity worthy of worship other than a law, along with the Athenian that along with that firm conviction in an individual's heart is what will take him to Jenna. Well, cabul and you need to have this acceptance where you accept it. Well, in theology submission, you need to submit to the will of your maker Subhana what Allah was sudak truthfulness. You need to be true to yourself, take them on Alfie Kohn. What did they do? They, they went on to profess

00:21:38--> 00:22:23

the kalama they did all of that. Right, but and they even prayed amidst the ranks of the Muslim mon they did everything that an apparent Muslim would do. But deep down, were they true to themselves? No, they were not true to themselves. They were not true to themselves. So Siddiq was not there. They were there for ulterior motives. They were there with an agenda. Subhana Allah so said that you need to be true to yourself will last you need to be sincere and to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if you look at the earlier condition in Riyadh, submitting to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to accept the commandments and the prohibitions of the maker. And then I'll encourage you to

00:22:23--> 00:22:45

submit unto a texture on shape chef on elm he had and has knowledge about Allah subhanho wa Taala. While you're playing he is firmly convinced about Eliza Jen, as we go through the books of you know, like the book title will be dire when the high of umami Bella kathira him online at the books we read about Chapin.

00:22:47--> 00:23:28

When we go back to the beginning of the creation of advise Islam we read that he was an individual who used to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. So much the extent that he was he was admitted to enter into the heavens and he was, you know, mingling with the angels. And when, on the day when Allah subhanho wa Taala announces the command or the creation of Adam is led to Islam. Shere Khan was with the angels. He was never from the angels but he was with them. What is called aboukir in melodica, de neige I don't feel are the halifa and then when Allah went on to command them what is cool now lil mela is to Dooley Adam for Satya do. That's where he failed. And that's where this this

00:23:28--> 00:24:16

condition comes about in third submission. When Allah commanded the angels and Shere Khan was amidst them, prostrate, and to add them LS LA to cillum. First serger do all of them prostrated, one can only imagine the scene, a sea of angels coming cascading down Subhana Allah in sujood in prostration, and to our father at the militia to Salaam for such a do it. He believes but there is this lone figure standing by himself, defying the command of Allah in arrogance in pride, standing haughtily Illa he believes except for he believes he failed with regards to fulfilling this condition in cleared submitting, he did not submit unto the commander of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:24:16--> 00:24:45

But instead he he was bloated with pride. He says unhide will mean you I am better than him. Hello cottony mi na wahala Kota, whom intervene You created me out of fire and you created him out of clay? Why should I prostrate unto him? He became proud, arrogant and haughty, and was dismissed and is doomed forever. May Allah protect us from pride. May Allah protect us from arrogance. May Allah protect us from haughtiness. I mean,

00:24:47--> 00:25:00

so many brothers and sisters, as you can see, he failed with the gadget that condition was so that to be truthful to yourself when afrikan they fail with regards to this class, they fail with regards to this with regards to sincerely doing what you're doing.

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

sake of Allah,

00:25:01--> 00:25:04

you can give out mountains of gold.

00:25:05--> 00:25:13

But if you're doing it for the wrong reasons, you're not going to see an ounce of it when you stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. On the other hand, you can give out a tiny date.

00:25:15--> 00:25:25

And if you give it out with the right intention, sincerely seeking the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah subhanho wa Taala you are going to see it when you stand in front of him in front of him as

00:25:26--> 00:25:31

well. Am I happy? And that's the last condition loves.

00:25:32--> 00:25:36

And that is a discussion for another day. We're not obviously talking about

00:25:38--> 00:26:09

that one shade of love. Normally today see the thing is love has been watered down has been objectified and sexualized. The minute you say the word love, that's what pops into our heads. But no, that's not the love that we're talking about. We're talking about this pure sense of love from the fountainhead of love the creator of love, loving Him and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:26:12--> 00:26:24

And that are the shades that come under it of course and if it is done as per his well as his wish, then you're going to be rewarded. Yes, the love between a mother and her child.

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

The mother is rewarded, the child is rewarded the love between spouses, yes.

00:26:31--> 00:26:32

If it is done

00:26:33--> 00:27:16

in a halal and pure way than the love that the husband chose to as the wife and the love that the wife shows towards the husband, why even the intimacy that they indulgent, they're going to be rewarded by Allah subhanho wa Taala for it. That's all connected. But he had this juncture we're talking about the pure form of love loving Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these are the conditions and we know alimony is Edwin Coase that a man increases and decreases. Unlike the man hour imagine the amount of the angels stationery the amount of the prophets constantly on the rise, but our Amen You and I mere mortals here's the Dwyane pose. It drops almost like an equalizer up and down. We need to

00:27:16--> 00:27:40

work towards doing what towards strengthening our Eman making it stronger, strengthening our conviction of a conviction with regards to what we must believe in. So this needs to be a constant work in progress. We need to keep the newing and rejuvenate our a man

00:27:41--> 00:27:42

our clean

00:27:44--> 00:27:49

and then we become from hula Kyla who de Mira Bhima hula eco homophone.

00:27:51--> 00:28:35

The ones who have secured guidance and the ones who have secured Fela victory and success in this world as well as the hereafter. With that I conclude today's reminder, we pray that Allah subhana wa Taala fills our hearts with your teen fills our hearts with he man fills our hearts with positive traits. We ask Allah azza wa jal for ease We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for healing. We ask Eliza gel to ease our affairs and take us all back to normalcy. I mean, I mean, just as how he united across all these platforms, I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala unites us in his beautiful and lofty garden, and that he blesses us to drink at the house at the fountain through the beautiful and

00:28:35--> 00:29:15

blessed hands of Mohammed. Salah Toby was lm o le today's Friday, my dear brothers and sisters, don't forget to send excessive blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in some parts of the world it might be still earlier on so don't forget to read so to have and don't forget sad to St. Jabba, there is the special hour as per the words of the messengers that allow it when you send them your do is unsaid, so make excessive to add during Friday. So that you know you go inside with that hour and your dollars will be answered by Allah subhanho wa Taala. With that I conclude as I comilla Hydra was set mo aleikum wa amatola e woba katsa.
