Channel: Muiz Bukhary
Series: Muiz Bukhary - Sahih Al Bukhaari
Islam Is Built upon 5
Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh I welcome you all to a brand new episode of The Sahih al Bukhari series.
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen bolsa Li, Mo Salah mala a shot of Colombia you will mousseline nebby, Gina Habibi, Nava karate ioannina Mohammed Abdullah la vida Allah He was happy he of de la sala de watamu tasleem Amma bad. We begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala who is no doubt our sustainer creator and nareesha, protector and cure, we ask him the Lord of all was the exalted to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of karma. My dear brothers and sisters, today we're
beginning a new Hadeeth for this series.
We were in the chapter of the beginning of Revelation, and the last episode.
The episode is up on my channel. You can check it out if you haven't already. We discussed the letter of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that was sent to the Roman Emperor, he rattlers we discussed the conversation that took place between this Emperor and Abu sufian in regards to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, a lengthy Hadith that discusses that
very important encounter in detail. So do check it out, like I said, if you haven't already. So today we're going to be starting Hadith number eight, under a new chapter and a new book within the book of Imam Al Bukhari. Rahim Allah.
So we're going to be now commencing Kitab, e man,
the chapter of a man. And if you look at the order, we dealt with why the beginning of Revelation and now why he is being followed by a man because you need to bring in a man you need to bring in faith in regards to the divine revelation. So the Hadith that we hope to be dealing with today is a famous Hadith that details the five pillars of our Deen.
So when we say pillars, before we get into the Hadith, I'd like to
clarify something in that regard when we say pillars, or why are they called pillars? When you look at the pillar, what's what is the role of a pillar? What is the function of a pillar?
The structure, the building that is being put up? Okay? Oh, if you were to think of it as foundations,
the structure relies upon the foundation it relies on those pillars. And the bigger
or the taller the structure, the stronger the foundations and the stronger the pillars need to be.
So if you have weak pillars,
or weak foundations, then Allah forbid, the structure can come crashing down May Allah protect us all. So it is of utmost importance for us to understand this hadith very clearly. For us to detail the pillars very clearly. And to implement them in our lives for us to have a strong Dini structure. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to do so. Now let's talk about the howdy
hi anybody Omar. Bro the logline Houma. So it's basically even Omar radi Allahu anhu Ma, who is making mention of the Hadith he says Kala Kala Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is reputed to have said booney al Islam Allah hums in Boolean Islam, Allah Hamza, so he says that Islam is based or booney al Islam, Islam has been built upon five, ie five principles, five pillars. It's been built upon five. So what are these five? Shahada tea Allah ilaha illallah wa and Mohammed rasulillah. What if I miss Sunnah? What eat that is can will hatch was Samia Ramadan.
Let me repeat the five again. Shahada de la ilaha illallah wa and Muhammad Rasulullah. What a common Salah.
What eat that is aka we'll hedge we're Sameera Milan. So these are the five that the dean is based upon, as per this Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So number one, she had to testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah Subhana Allah Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is Allah's Messenger. Number two economists Allah to establish prayer to offer the compulsory prayers dutifully. Number three, to give out Zika to pay Zika number four to perform high touch and number five, Sameera Oban to observe fasting during the month of Ramadan. So now when talking about a man this is Kitab Amen, amen. So Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah goes on
dimension eyman consists of statement and action while Hua colon warfare alone, well as the wion course
it consists of statement and action yz it increases y n plus and it reduces you so you have highs and lows when it comes to emotion and this is easily you know, something that we can all relate to. We've experienced it the times we feel spiritually high where we feel like we are upon a high when it comes to our eemaan when it comes to a low faith, and at times we do hit lows as well May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us during those times and help us to, you know regain the vigor and the strength of our Eman and keep us steadfast upon the deen
Eliza gel he says in the Noble Quran Leah's dadoo imana ma Imani him there is that basically illustrate that the man
In another place, Allah says visit the NA home houda Why is he in another place where z de la la Vina del
Huda? So there are ayat that basically illustrate that a man increases and Eliza Virgil he increases the
So like we mentioned war colon warfare alone, it is statement and action. Now this is this is something very important to discuss.
Because if one were to say that you know what statement only would suffice.
Now, we would say that is erroneous, because one cannot say that you know what? I'm just going to say a shamala illa Illa, Washington shadow, Mohammed also de la by statement, and I am not going to follow it up with action and deem himself free of responsibility.
The statement, the Shahada needs to be followed up with action.
You may be thinking, Okay, so what is the evidence for this?
What happened to you blease. And interestingly, we discussed his story in the tafsir intensive series. And if you didn't watch those episodes, those episodes and those classes are up on the channel as well, the story of Chopin part one and part two. So when you study about the story of share time, you see, that long, long, long ago, many, many moons ago, Chopin, used to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. So much the extent that he was permitted to ascend to the heavens, and he was part of the assembly of the angels. He was not from the angels Academy in Elgin, he was from the jinn. But he was part of the assembly he was with the angels when the command was issued. to
prostrate unto our father Adam is rather solemn.
So from this, where do we end the wonders? What do we understand we understand that he believed in Allah, He believed in Allah.
But then he went on to dis obey our maker subhanho wa Taala, he did not for a period of time, he followed it up with action, but at the most crucial juncture, he decided to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala. He gave into his ego, he gave into his
arrogance, and dug a bit for himself, and he stuck in that pit. May Allah protect us all from ego and arrogance, and from the traps of the devil. Because what do we see? Even after this, obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala. He goes on to address he goes on to make a door. He says, Robbie, oh my lord, we now wait and he and he blames a large budget. He says, Oh my not because you led me astray. Okay, because you led me astray. I'm going to do this. I'm going to do that he goes on to challenge
Allah subhanho wa Taala but the way he addresses the lives of Israel the way he invokes Allah subhanho wa Taala, we see that he believes in Allah Rabi and even when when challenging the maker subhanho wa Taala. He
promises by the might of Allah subhanho wa Taala by the power of Eliza budget.
He promises by the might of Allah, by your might, I'm going to lead them astray. So from this we understand that he believed in the lives of others statements, he was making statements where he believed in Allah Subhana Allah, but he was not following it up with actions. So So what does Allah say in regards to SharePoint Academy? no caffeine, he became of those who rejected Allah subhanho wa Taala disbelieved in Eliza. So merely restricting yourself to Cole statement would not suffice. While Hua Kowloon and this is why Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah the genius, he starts off by establishing this very, very important point.
He man when talking about he man wahiawa how alone warfare alone, it is statement and action they go hand in hand together.
Now something else that we need to discuss at this juncture
is in regards to EMA. No. So the chapter starts off keytab Lehman and then the Hadith. The Prophet Li lisims is booni al Islam, Allah hums so that we have two terms, Islam and Eamonn
are they synonymous in nature?
Or are they two separate terms are there find wences between the two? Let's take a fleeting glance in this regard. So when it comes to Islam and the man separately, so this is what is understood when you go through the the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Separately, the two terms separately as in, in two separate places, when you're discussing Islam and eemaan. They mean the same. They're synonymous in nature. Islam literally means submission and adhering to the commands of Allah azza wa jal, you submit yourself to the will of the maker. So it is mission and adherence to the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in this sense, it includes all of the apparent acts of worship, as has been taught to us by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the famous Hadith known as the hadith of gibreel.
of famous Hadith, a beautiful Hadith we will eventually get to it and discuss it in detail in sha Allah Allah. There was this conversation that took place between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and jeopardized Islam, in that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was asked about Islam, the prophets of Allah Islam and don't to say that Islam is to testify that there is no deity worthy of worship, other than Allah subhanho wa Taala and that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the Messenger of Allah.
And it is to establish prayer, it is to give out your zeca it is to fast the month of Ramadan, and it is to perform Hajj pilgrimage, and this is for those who can afford to do so the Hadith is recorded in the book of Imam Muslim.
And in that same Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he goes on to define a man.
So gibril alysha to Islam asks the Prophet sallallahu Sallam what is Islam and the prophets lie Selim goes on to the goes on goes on to
you know, mentioned in detail the five pillars. And when he was asked about a man, the prophets lie Selim defined it in the same Hadith where he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stated that he man and to me, Nebula momella ekiti, workqueue to be he was really he bujjamma so he goes on.
He goes on to say, he managed to believe in Allah, His angels, his books, his messengers, and Doomsday, and fate are causal.
So, a quick comparison here. When you look at these two definitions in that Hadith, you can see that Islam deals with the apparent acts of worship, and eemaan deals with the hidden
so like we mentioned earlier, if they're both mentioned separately, they refer to one another.
Let's take the example where when we call someone, a Muslim,
we also mean that this person is a man that this person is a believer, and when we address someone as a man as a believer, then it is understood that
This person is a Muslim. So based on this we can conclude that if these two terms are mentioned separately, they mean the same. But if they are mentioned in the same context, like in the Hadith, the hadith of gibreel,
or in a sentence when they mentioned together, they have their own distinctive meanings.
So in the hadith of gibreel, we see that Islam deals with all of the apparent acts of worship, whilst a man deals with the hidden acts of worship. So to conclude, Islam and a man, they are interrelated, as well as inseparable.
So I hope this is
clear in regards to the definition, or in regards to the differences between Islam and even now, in the same context, the two cannot be
determined as the same man and Islam. And this is why in the Quran omeka subhanho wa Taala he talks about the Bedouins quality arabo Amina,
the Bedouin Arabs, they said that we have brought in a man and it was said to them, it was said O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell them coolum Meanwhile, lacking kulu Islam now, that they have not brought any man rather they should say that we have become Muslim. So a person cannot be described as a believer unless he is originally a Muslim, because he man is a special degree. So when when talking about the degrees, you have Islam as being the first level, the first degree, and this is a general description for every person who declares who articulates and declares and establishes the two testimonies of faith. And this, this, the term Islam
applies to, like I said, the apparent
features of Islam.
And also, if you were to look at it from this angle, a Muslim may not necessarily be a believer, but a believer is that Leah Muslim, so you have Islam.
And the person who submits or brings in Islam is known as a Muslim as being the first degree and then you have a man and the person who brings in a man is known as a man as a second degree. And then you have a son, which is the highest degree in Allahu hibel Mufson in India, Allah loves the monsoon. And the person who brings in inculcates and implements Hassan is known as a moccasin so Islam Eamon assan Muslim make more sense as you can see, they are upon degrees, they are upon levels, when they are discussed in the same context. But otherwise, they are interrelated and refer to one another, if they are discussed separately. And in this regard, we conclude this definition by
saying Allah Subhana Allah knows best.
Now, coming back to the Hadees
it deals with the apparent acts the Shahada is a statement that is apparent and then the Kama Sutra establishing prayer it's apparent and giving out your zeca it is apparent first in the month of Ramadan, it is apparent performing hajj, it is apparent, and all these deeds that were just mentioned, they are all known or categorized as far the iron so far, is defined as obligatory they are all obligations, and for the irony is defined as an individual obligation. In other words, it is obligatory upon each and every Muslim.
Each and every Muslim for time. So in this as you can see, for the key fire now you so the,
the opposite of for the iron is for fire, which is basically the communal obligations. Now if you were to take
something like a funeral prayer, now in a community, if
let's say in a community, if a Muslim passes away, now it is upon the Muslims of that area. It is their communal obligation that the final rites be performed upon the deceased.
Now, let's say there are
10,000 people living in that vicinity in that area. So when someone passes away,
it becomes a communal obligation upon all the Muslims in that area. There's 10,000 Muslims to fulfill the final rights of the Muslim was passed away.
Okay. But from that 10,000 because obviously they let's say they're living, scattered and living all around
If 1000 get together or 100 get together and fulfill the final rights then the obligation falls off the shoulders of the rest of the community but if no one does it and Allah forbid if the cops is just found lying on the on the streets, then every single individual all 10,000 of them will be held accountable, and they've all fallen short in regards to fulfilling this
obligation. So, when it comes to optional and and also optional deeds, along with photokey fire, you have optional deeds, now, that again would depend on each individual's capacity, but as you can see in this Hadeeth, whatever was mentioned for the line, the five daily prayers every single one of us as Muslims, we need to pray the fasting during the month of Ramadan, we all have to fast it giving out of zeca if you are, if you fulfill
basically if you are eligible to give out Sokka you must give out years ago there is no evading it and if you are of those who fulfill the criteria to perform hajj, then it is upon your shoulders, it is an obligation that you must perform hajj, but as for optional deeds, it would vary from individual to individual for some fasting may be easy for some praying
optional prayers in the night may be easy. For some reading the Quran may be easy for some the seeking of knowledge may be easy and when we say the seeking of knowledge, it needs to be understood that
you know the the general seeking of it in terms of the the foundations in regards to the Avada the basic principles and the foundational principles it is upon all of us to know it. I mean, how are you to pray if you don't know how to pray. So when I mentioned this in the optional category, we were referring to a surplus of beneficial knowledge. So for some, they've devoted their lives like even if it's a Sahaba. If you take a companion like Abu huraira, or the last one, he was known to be by the prophets of Allah while he very seldom, you know the student, the student of knowledge constantly with the prophets that allow highly valuable solemn listening to the words of the
messenger sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam and narrating Hadith. So, for some, the tea the seeking of knowledge and the teaching of it is easy. For some the reading of the Quran is easy for some praying is easy for some giving out charity is easy for some fasting is easy. So in terms of optional deeds, it is subjective, and each person is allowed to do what he was what he or she finds easy for them to do.
But in terms of the obligatory deeds then it is upon all of our shoulders. Now getting into the five pillars. The first one is she had that Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, it is to bear witness
that there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His Messenger. Now this kalama La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah. So, powerful statement, a powerful statement, we have a hadith where moose is that wisdom, he wants us Allah subhanho wa Taala for a thick
whereby he could remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and it was said to moose Allah so that was Salaam Alaikum wa jal informes masala is that was alum, read La ilaha illAllah. Read la in LA. Now musala is that was salam, he responds.
He says Allah, and I'm paraphrasing the notion goes along the lines of these words, all of your creation, read this Vicar. All of them recite this Vicar, I desire or I want something special from you. So he was looking for a special way of remembering Eliza Virgil a special form of the vicar if you will. Allah Subhana Allah Allah then informs Moses that was salam o Moosa.
If the seven Earths and the seven heavens are placed on one pan of a scale, let's say if you were able to put up a scale and on one pan if you were to put the seven heavens and the seven Earths,
on one side, and on the other side, if La ilaha illAllah is placed,
the kalama La ilaha illa Allah will outweigh everything on La.
And this hadith is recorded
by the Imams, an essay by Imam, even a hibben and in mustard rock of him
mamil Hakeem Rahim Allah and it is an authentic hadith mama the hubby Rahim Allah and others like mama Hepburn and mm Hakeem have all declared this hadith as a Sahih Hadith as an authentic hadith.
So to discuss further in regards to the virtues of this particular statement, the key to Jenna, the key to Paradise is found in this declaration, in this testimony that there is none worthy of worship other than Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is the Messenger of Allah. This statement My dear brothers and sisters is the foundation of our Deen the foundation of Islam. It is the it is the first step basically the beginning of faith. It is the source of all virtues, the means of success and victory in this world as well as the hereafter for those who implement it in their lives for those who actualize its meaning. We have a hadith we are at demand or the logline
who he states at the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said a powerful narration media brothers and sisters, Matt Well who I am and the hula Illa Illa de halogen now Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant each and every one of us
entry into his beautiful and lofty garden I mean Melaka steadfast upon his Deen, may Allah guide us May Allah guide us And may Allah keeper steadfast upon his Deen and May Allah grant us entry into his garden I mean,
so the Hadith Rasul Allah says, Matt, well who I am and the hula Allah in the law, the whole agenda, the one who dies, knowing that there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah. The halogen will enter Paradise Hadith is in the book of Mr. Muslim Rahim Allah. It is an authentic hadith. So this testimony of faith is the key to Jenna is the key to paradise.
But what do you notice about keys, virtually you have all kinds of keys, you have digital keys. But generally when talking about a key even if you were to take a digital key, the digital key needs to be programmed for it to open a specific lock.
Every key and when talking about traditional keys, every key must have p you see a key has teeth, it needs to have rituals, which
which basically match the lock on the door that you're trying to open. Otherwise it will not open. See you have blank keys. If you've gone to a key cutter, you'd see that he has a ton of blank keys. Now obviously with a blankie blankie won't even enter the lock because the lock has originals, so it won't even enter the lock.
Or if you have the wrong key with you it has ridges but the wrong ridges. So if you were to try and put it inside a lock, it wouldn't go in or it would go in but it wouldn't turn it wouldn't release
the ridges for the lock to open. So likewise many brothers and sisters, upon that example the testimony of faith.
This testimony of faith it is the key to Jenna. But certain conditions need to be met in the form of ridges for it to lead us to paradise for it to be able to open the door of Jenna for us. emammal Bihari Rahim Allah he reports that it was said to a famous scholar Wahhabi Bynum on eBay. You it was said to him
is not the key to Jenna.
The declaration that there is no God but Allah subhanho wa Taala is it not the key to Jenna? So why are you talking about conditions now? The key to Jenna is the kanima. So, Hollis, let's let's,
you know, conclude the discussion there. So now, what herb responds he says Bella pose. The key to Jenna is this testimony. Well, I can
laser miftah han Illa Allah who has Nan
but every key has ridges. He said of course this is the key to Jenna but every key has radius if you come with the right key, the door will be open for you. Otherwise it will never be open the middle of protect us and this is recorded in the book of Imam Al Bukhari. Rahim Allah. So now let's discuss the conditions
In regards to this powerful testimony, La ilaha illAllah 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 Jenna I mean, so the conditions the conditions are deduced from the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophets that along while he really was lm. And
if you know this poem
sulam will soon have chef half of the hakomi 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 acabo Lu will in Korea.
feathery ma Cole was cynical while lasso while muhabba wa Fokker con la Halima Hubba.
Let me repeat, la Elmo, Malia theano, while abou will in Korea do further EMA cool. So he basically says knowledge or Elmo knowledge, will your teen certainty conviction conviction will Cobbold acceptance apset acceptance and I'll in Korea do submission and following further EMA akule. So listen carefully to what I say was cynical. truthfulness. Well if lasso, sincerity will muhabba love seven conditions were fuck 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 law Illa. 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 law, a law 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. But 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 a lot there is none law in the law, there is no deity worthy of worship other not law.
And again, if you recall the Hadith that I mentioned a while ago, or Samana or the Allah one he reposts the prophets lie some news reporter said, my mat haha yeah, lm look at the wording of the prophets Allah Al Islam, 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 And like I mentioned earlier, it's recorded the book of Mr. 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 owner levena am and obey Allah He was holy for millennia.
Indeed, or enamel moon only those are the believers. A levena Amano, those who have believed in Allah, what are solely 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 ribolla Delica he tabula rasa Buffy when talking about the Quran, loughrea Buffy no doubt in it. Likewise, some millimeter of 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 wasallam is conditional
upon the fact that there should be no elements of doubt they are 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 what I care for in the crowd and follow me and remind for reminders, Prophet, 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 we 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 in 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 de la one who he says the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his report draft 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 a lion is 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 prophets analysis reporter said no person meets Allah with these two, believing in Allah and the
Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 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 we 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 that there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah, believing in it with certainty in his heart, believing in it with your theme, certainty.
second condition in his heart, then give him the glad tidings of genda glad tidings of paradise. Moving on condition number three,
a COBOL while in period,
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
to 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
You accepted a bowl. 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 it really will sell him. We have an authentic hadith where Abu Musab al ashari are the one who he mentioned to 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 he 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 proper surrealism 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 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 pible it accepts the rain.
So you need to accept the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah. And then you see prosperity, you see abundance, you 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 it 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 Chopin, 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 that 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 messenger set along early early early when Selim has brought. So that's condition number four for
you. condition number five is acidic
truthfulness as 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.
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 is kilobit, which is the opposite of so that falsehood, if there is lying in place of siddik, then that individual
is defined as a monophonic.
May Allah protect us from the FARC 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 Elias 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 kid
in regards to the Cali my La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah. So this is of utmost importance.
Moving on, so we're done with sudak.
And just before I conclude, on that particular point, we have a hadith again, according to the book of Imam, Bukhari Muslim Imam Allah, more either been in Djibouti or the last one he says that
there is no one to the more other than the last one he narrates the prophets that is in his report, Rob said there is no one who bears witness that there is no god except a lion 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. Now you might be wondering, well, I believe in Allah and I haven't associated partners and to unlock
when you go deeply into a class, you'd understand
that ship 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 you're basically associated community you've 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 staff basically the first row
next to them are added in there to react the concept of react takes over
So 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 intention because share time, 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 become distorted.
So it's of utmost importance that we work on sincerity with ala ilaha illa Allah 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 adhering to the commandments of Allah staying away from the prohibitions of Allah, adhering to the teachings of the Quran and the sooner
Allah Allah hit the nail harness, 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 hudy Abu huraira Viola 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 a 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 message. 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, what he came with,
we have an authentic hadith. And I hope you were observing for every point. We backed it with evidence from the heart and as soon as the prophets that along
and a similar Malik for the Allahu anhu, he noticed that the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Islam, his report have said,
law you know, haidakhan, 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 than 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 called a felon, it's a statement along with action
and it entails these conditions.
