Mr. Lai Rahman Rahim Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. At Hyundai level Bill Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge mine about Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. My brothers and sisters, all over the world wherever you may be. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to accept our pm our CM, may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our sadaqa our tilava And may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept all the dollars that we make in the month of Ramadan, whether for ourselves for the entire Muslim Ummah, for anyone else may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept all of our do as me Lebanon, Amin. So Hamdulillah we have now covered in our series of the

00:01:04 --> 00:01:42

branches of faith, we have covered all the branches of faith that are related to the tongue. There are seven in particular, and I'm going to try to remember them, but they are, first of all of what you have in hate Allah as mentioned in the hadith of Abu Huraira, which is to say the testimony of faith, which is later in Allah, we talked about the virtues of Lila and Allah. Then we talked about reading the Quran, we talked about acquiring knowledge and passing on knowledge. We talked about the importance of dua, we talked about the proper use of the tongue in the misuse of the tongue. So we talked about these seven things. And all these seven things are the branches of faith that are

00:01:42 --> 00:02:25

mentioned in the book of Imam Al by happy January shorebird. Eman so now inshallah we're getting to the ones that are related to our physical actions. And in the very first one that I have mentioned, is that he talks about the importance of cleanliness, he talked about the importance of cleanliness. And then he actually talked about it within that same topic, the importance of Hulu, he talked about the importance of keeping our body clean, he talked about the importance of making sure that our clothes are clean. And so keeping that in mind, I want to first of all share the hadith of rheumatic luxury Ultron, where we're in the province of Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, it's a very famous

00:02:25 --> 00:03:07

Hadith well known Hadith, where the prophet Allah has said up to who chaperone Iman that purity is half a faith. Now, here in this sentence, many orlimar have discussed and debated and deliberated that what exactly does this mean is this in reference to will do is this reference to general the general concept of Mahara and many orlimar have said that this is in reference to general taharah that means that when it comes to our inner inner self, when it comes to our internal aspect, we should be clean, okay. taharah does not necessarily mean that our clothes should be cleaned and our on the place where we are praying shall be clean, and our bodies should be clean. But when we talk

00:03:07 --> 00:03:50

about cleanliness, and being pure, it also applies to the internal state of our affairs. That means that making sure that our hearts are completely clean, and we should always ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to peer our hearts because the heart is such a place where any kind of feeling to come in is a place where hatred, malice and jealousy and so many other spiritual illnesses can come and they will set their roots in your heart and then we'll settle there. And so this is why it's very important that number one, we do what we have to do to clean our hearts. And number two is we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to clean our hearts and not only that, but then when we talk about a Beholder

00:03:50 --> 00:04:35

shuttle Eman, taharah taharah then it it transcends in from the internal state to the external state. And that means that externally first of all, making sure that our body is clean, making sure that when we go to use the restroom, it is so important that we keep in mind what exactly is Tahara and making sure that you know the etiquettes that we learned from us hula sallahu it was sending when it comes with the hara, they have to be applied. That means that making sure that when we use the restroom, we sit down and we use the restroom Subhanallah today we are living in times where so many of our specially our Muslim youth, our young men, they're standing up and and using the

00:04:35 --> 00:04:38

restroom and there is a very,

00:04:39 --> 00:04:59

very small concept, a very low concept and very low understanding of what is the meaning and definition of the Hara. How does the Hora apply to me or not? When I go to the restroom, making sure that I take my time do not rush because a lot of times when we do rush and there are there might be

00:05:00 --> 00:05:39

You know drops of urine that may come on are close. Remember the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wherein he says that stay away from urine, because it is the reason why most of the time the punishment of the grave takes place. So this is something that we find in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, making sure that our clothes are clean, making sure that when we wear clothes, we're not wearing such smelly clothes, or our clothes do not have an odor, that it can offend someone else. So making sure that our clothes are clean, especially especially when we go to the masjid I know nowadays, we're not going to the masjid because it's pandemic. But

00:05:39 --> 00:06:18

nonetheless, when we go to the masjid, or even if we are praying with our family, making sure that we try to stay away from wearing something that can be considered as offensive. You have, you know, children in the family, you have your spouse there, so making sure that we wear something nice. Remember the idea of the Quran where Allah subhana wa Taala says, Yeah, Bunny, hello, Xena tecoma in the coolie Masjid. Every time you go to the masjid, then wear something nice. Now in our current context, that means that when we get together as a family, make sure you wear something nice. And I've always said this, that even when it comes to subtle Joomla I know that nowadays we're not

00:06:18 --> 00:07:01

allowed and we're not going to the budget for support Joomla but a lot of times we are tuning in to some masjid and we are listening to the Joomla Coda live. If that is the case, in order to revive and create a spirit of Jamaica in our house, then why not everyone come together at the time of Jamar when if something nice just like you are going to the masjid and apply some perfume and sit down and listen to the hotbar as a family collectively, and then you prey on sort of the heart, but this is the whole concept that cleanliness is something that we have to always pay attention to. Now when it comes to of course will do which I want to really focus on today inshallah for the rest of

00:07:01 --> 00:07:47

my talk, first of all is that when we talk about will do Imam Reza Rahmatullah Allah it says something very amazing. He says that, in order for our Salah to become in our will do has to be common. That means that if I want my salah to be done correctly, then the the preparation for that salad, which is will do, it has to also be done correctly. Think about this, if I don't prepare that I'm not going to do well on my test. If I prepare well, my test is going to go well in most cases. So this is why we'll do is our preparation because I'm about to go and pray. And if I do my wuhou in a hasty manner, then my salad is going to be done in a hasty manner. This is what Yvonne was

00:07:47 --> 00:08:30

mentioned. He also mentioned that if it's done carelessly mean that I'm just you know, slapping water on my hands and I'm just making any which way not caring about the thyroid, not caring about the adab in the Sunnah as of although then eventually when I get to my slot, my slot will also be deficient in that way. I will not care about the Sooners of slot rather I will just want to get through my slot. This is why brothers and sisters when it comes to will do we have you taken a look very seriously. Will do is prepping us for our appointment. Yes, you know when you have an appointment like for example imagine you're about to go and interview for a job dye is an

00:08:30 --> 00:09:03

appointment. You look make sure you look well. You make sure you look like you know tidy and everything. We have an appointment and you know more appointment is with our appointment is with Allah subhanho wa Taala Yes, it is an appointment and is not with our potential employer. It is with a soccer ball hockey mean is with the King of all kings. And that appointment requires a very special preparation and that preparation is will do. So let's talk about some of the Quick Keys On the virtues of Hulu.

00:09:04 --> 00:09:31

First of all, there's a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that once he was in the graveyard with his harbor of the Allah Quran home and it just like it was a customary practice and a sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every time he will go to the graveyard he will make this dua a Salam aleykum Allah dare menial menial. We're in insha Allah who become law his own the Salam aleykum to all the dwellers of this place, that

00:09:32 --> 00:09:52

way not inshallah become like your own, that inshallah one day will come that we will come and join you next. Hola. Hola, Anna Lana, welcome to the Aafia. We ask for ourselves and for you a Lafayette, safety and security and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he began to tell these people that

00:09:53 --> 00:09:59

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that I wish to see my brothers, the Prophet saw some says, I wish to see my brothers

00:10:00 --> 00:10:42

My companions. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he's been he's surrounded with the Sahaba or the alotta at home, and the Sahaba like they're scratching their head and they're thinking to themselves like, aren't we your companions, Odessa Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and the prophets as Sam says, You are my companions. But my brothers are those who have not come into the world yet. Now think about this, the Prophet saw some has seen the Sahaba right? Yes. Has he seen us know? Nothing about this on the Day of Judgment? How will how will the Prophet of Allah recognize us today think about if you have been for hajj, there are there is like 1000s and 1000s of people in hudge can you

00:10:42 --> 00:11:31

find one person out of that journey you cannot think about how many people are in Hajaj nothing but the Day of Judgment. From the beginning from either model you sit down all the way to the last human being ever to come on this earth. Every single person is going to be on the on the plane and on the ground of the Day of Judgment. How will Rasul Allah, Allah while your son recognize you and I, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in the Almighty, you the owner Yamanaka, Amity, Waterland, a home run hygiene Goron waha, Jolene, Min Atha, will do the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he's saying that he will recognize us, He will see and he will recognize the OMA how with the

00:11:31 --> 00:12:18

Haoran means that there is a whiteness like this is this is actually in reference to a horse, the horse would run, that his there is a certain whiteness on his face, which distinguishes that horse from everyone else. And not only that will hygiene, that there is a certain whiteness, on their on their legs. And on the Day of Judgment, this is not the simply whiteness that's going to be there. Because if it is simply whiteness, the problem may not be able to see it. But these places that we are making wudu we're washing our face, we're washing our hands. So first of all, the person gives the example of the horse that just like this horse is recognizable are so many horses. Likewise on

00:12:18 --> 00:13:03

the Day of Judgment, these places that you used to wash in the will do our face, our hands, our feet, they will not just be white, but they will be shining. They will be illuminated and when they are illuminated there and there's a radiant coming from them. The Prophet saw some says that when I see this, then I'll be able to recognize who all my followers and somehow this is why another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentioned that whoever wants to extend His radiance, he says Melissa farm income men comb and Utila Waratah who find your fine, he says, Whoever can extend this than they should do so. And so how about keeping this in mind? I remember I had a teacher. And

00:13:03 --> 00:13:42

he used to say that even when you're washing your face, or washing your arms, not just go to your elbow, go a little more higher if you can, I'm not encouraging or endorsing going all the way to to your shoulder area. But all I'm saying is that my teacher used to say that it goes a little more up, because the more that we will be illuminated on the Day of Judgment, the better and easier it'll be for the for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to recognize us. But think about this. If I'm just slapping water on I'm not doing well do correctly. Will these places will these limbs be eliminated on the Day of Judgment? That's something that we have to care about. Not only that,

00:13:42 --> 00:14:22

another virtue of Lulu that I want to share with you is from a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that once during In his dream he saw that be that or the yellow Quran. Some say it happened on assignment or some say that the person saw a dream. But nonetheless he saw below the yoke on who he heard his footsteps. And he asked later on when he woke up and he came across bedevil the whole time he said Oberland I saw that you're you you were ahead of me and you're in a great palace of Jannah. What is that one thing that you do? Do you know of anything that you do that is very unique and very special. And bilateral you'll Athan who said you have to love the only thing

00:14:22 --> 00:14:59

that I know that I do is that every time I break my blue or I lose my will I go back and I and I perform will do again. And I always perform to the customer after that. And think about this being always in the state of will do this is something that we should always try and we should strive for. Of course I understand that it may be difficult, but think about this if we're going to the restroom, and after a while I know that half an hour 45 minutes later it might be slot time. Now when it comes to a lot of time a lot of times we get lazy oh I have to go make will do in the slot time and so forth. But if you have to do already

00:15:00 --> 00:15:42

Then you seem to get up and you pray your Salaat that's why there is benefit and being in the state of will do next I want to share with you a another Hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu It was said that the highlights the virtues of Lulu, and this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying that this is how you protect. This is how you protect and maintain your deen. And first of all, he says, an awkward Buddha can be Marian Hall who Biggie and Hatha Yoga, well, your father will be at the Rajat. If I were to ask you that, do you want your sins to be forgiven? Do we want our sins to be forgiven? We all will say yes. If I were to ask that, do we want Allah to raise our ratings in

00:15:42 --> 00:16:24

Jannah? Every person will say, Yes, we will love it. And so the province of Islam is sitting with the sahaba. He's saying, Should I tell you that will raise your rings, and that will wipe out your sins. Because think about this going imagine coming on the day of judgment, and we are completely sinless. That is a sort of a guarantee for Jana. So this is the word the Prophet saw the Prophet Allah use, I'm saying, and the Sahaba they want to know so bad. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says is, when we'll do e al mCherry, he says, is to complete and to perform the will do in difficult circumstances in challenging circumstances. Now, of course, when we talk about this, the

00:16:24 --> 00:17:04

alumni the way they explain this is that imagine you are in a very cold climate Alhambra, today, we turn on the water, hot water begins to come in, in a matter of no time. But imagine if you are living in a situation and I have been in those kind of situations, you know, personally, in my life where, you know, you're waking up, it's winter, you're living in a in a third world country. And at that time, you know, being over there at that time, of course, it's difficult because you don't have like, you know, heaters the way we have. And then on top of that, you have to wake up for certain Fudger and then you have to make will do now one is to just make the, you know, quickly make the

00:17:04 --> 00:17:42

photo it will do and that's it. But the prophet saw the Prophet sallallahu It was sudden saying, it's about a hole we'll do, to complete it to perfect it, to do a complete with all making sure that you're fulfilling the Freud of course, but the Sunnah and the adult, and it is difficult circumstances. So of course, it's not something that many of us probably will or may not go through. But wait if we ever find ourselves in that kind of situation, this is a good opportunity for Allah to raise our ranks and to wipe away our sins. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying that to make a will in these kind of circumstances, and then he says what that's what we'll hook on

00:17:42 --> 00:18:16

it and massage it to make to take many steps to the masjid were enchilada Swati by the salah to wait for us a lot after Salaat. And then he says for that he can worry about the rebound is quickly, the time the problems of sudden people who were standing on the boundary, protecting the city, they were called rebuilt. So imagine if I am if I do all these things is as if I'm protecting my Deen. I'm protecting my Eman. I'm protecting my spirituality. Also we find another virtue of Hulu is especially before we go to sleep.

00:18:17 --> 00:18:57

First of all, is that a person who does make Hulu before they go to sleep and they are sleeping in the state of Hulu? The Prophet said Allahu Allah He was said I mentioned in the Hadith, that the angels they make dua for this person think about the angels making dua today Subhanallah we go to a scholar, we go to the Imam we go to someone who you know who has a lot of religiosity in their life, and we always say make dua for us make dua for us make dua for us, think about the angels making dua for you. It is almost a guarantee that inshallah inshallah their dollars will be accepted. And not only that, but in a hadith Narrated by Abu there that will Viola Quran, actually this hadith. This

00:18:57 --> 00:19:40

is a quote of a Buddha that is found in her body. He mentioned that when a person sleeps then and he sleeps with Lulu, his soul is permitted to make sudo to Allah subhanho wa Taala and I've heard this before many people say there is a Hadith of the prophets of Psalm is not necessarily a hadith, the Prophet sallallahu it was set up in his code of a Buddha that is found in fertile body, but nonetheless, imagine if I'm making a loo before I go to sleep is as if my soul is making sudo to Allah subhanho wa Taala think about my soul is in the state of sujood throughout the entire period of me going to sleep jumps just because I made Hulu before I went to sleep Subhanallah amazing. So

00:19:40 --> 00:19:59

this is why it's very important that there are so many virtues of Hulu, we keep all them in mind. Lastly, the last two things I want to share with you is that when it comes to Hulu, we should have knowledge of Hulu. So as I said earlier, there is the spiritual aspect of Hulu okay because it is a preparation for our appointment with the crew

00:20:00 --> 00:20:38

either but at the same time when it comes to we'll do we should have knowledge about well though, there are some circumstances when certain types of water are not allowed to be used for will do, we should know about that, more than that actually, because we have water coming from our taps and you know they are all hit and they are mortal hit. But the other thing that we should always keep in mind is the Ferraris of although the Sumners of will the what are the Sooners of Hulu because according to the HANA for example, there are four for either Hulu acquainted I'm shuffling the other scholars, you add intention to that some said that they're deep, you know a, the order is necessary.

00:20:39 --> 00:21:21

One of the scholars have said that it is important and is unnecessary that in riilu you wipe and you you know making sure that you wipe the water that as you pour the water on there making sure that it's getting you know is getting everywhere, which is called a Delk which is a more of a stronger Rob making sure you do that. But at the same time there are Sooners of the Prophet sallallahu ala he was sending them that we should abide by for example, you know, gargling the mouth it is a sin another prophet saw said I'm putting water into your nose is another prophet saw Selim. So a lot of times when we are making a loo if we're not in the habit of performing the Sunnah as we usually pass

00:21:21 --> 00:22:05

by them. Also when it comes to the adage of woowoo, making sure that we know where the devil will do. You know, for example, not talking about worldly affairs is the adult of Hulu, you know, you're making a living and talking about the worldly affairs and what is going on this and that. That's not a proper of Hulu. Also part of the idea of Hulu is that making sure that you read the DUA before you begin, which is a very simple Bismillah. And that brings me to the last point which is part of the dab of glue is to read the dua after will do And subhanAllah there is a very beautiful virtue, if you read the dua after will do what is it do I have to first of all, it is a shadow Allah, Allah, I

00:22:05 --> 00:22:23

should not Mohammed Abu rasuluh the shahada, I shall do Allah, Allah, what I should do and no Mohammed Abdullah sudo the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that anyone who recites this after will do on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanho wa Taala will open up for him.

00:22:25 --> 00:22:26

Not a gate,

00:22:27 --> 00:23:16

not one door. Eight doors have Janna eight doors have Jana, for this person, and he will be able to enter into any one of them as he wishes. Think about that. You have eight doors of Jannah and you can enter any of them just because I said a shadow Allah it Allah, why should you know Mohammed Abdul Rosu design and take two seconds, it is even takes two seconds, even if I make will do six times a day, seven times a day. It's it just takes two seconds. That's 14 seconds. That's it. But for by doing this, this is the reward given to us by Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is why we'll do in general has to be taken care of it has to be conducted in the right way. Keeping in mind all

00:23:16 --> 00:23:54

the virtues keeping in mind the spiritual aspect of Google and not only that, but as email Albuquerque mentioned that one the science of and one of the characteristics of our iman is that we purify ourselves, internally we purify ourselves, externally we purify ourselves, in terms of our clothes, in terms of our body, and especially when it comes to will purify, purifying ourselves and preparing ourselves for our appointment with Allah subhanho wa Taala ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to give us the ability to do all these things the correct way may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the ability to do everything that whatever we do in the way it has been shown to us by Rasulullah

00:23:54 --> 00:24:08

sallallahu it was setting up and in the way that is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala I mean Zachman located Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh shareholder on Melbourne, Letty?
